“Never again!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

I stayed here with my boyfriend for my birthday as we have family nearby but wanted to spend a night somewhere just the two of us before visiting family. The hotel was terrible from the offset. No logical layout to the carpark with cars and golf buggys parked wherever people felt like leaving them. The family checking in before us were told about the opening hours of the pool/ breakfast etc however we were given no helpful information just informed that they didn't have a room available as the same one we'd booked (I actually had to show a screenshot of the booking I made as the woman on reception wouldn't even believe that we had booked a double room not a twin!) we were eventually told someone would push the two beds together while we went out (brilliant).
We had dinner in the sports bar upstairs, there was no seating available other than some dated sofas directly opposite the bar and although the barman was friendly and engaging we were very much made to feel that this was a locals sports bar and our presence was not welcomed by the group of old men drinking lager and playing pool. I asked for no peas with my dinner, to which the barman replied 'I'll put it on your order but I doubt the chef will listen' lo and behold my order came out with peas, what if I had been asking due to an allergy?
The room was nicely decorated in a shabby chic style however the walls were so thin we could hear word-for-word other guests conversations, the water tanks were intermittently rumbling all night and the tv which we used to try to block out the noise would only show free view with a poor reception which kept cutting out to static.
Breakfast was the worst part of the stay. We decided to go to breakfast early however I don't think it would have made a difference what time we ate. Breakfast was ran by two overworked teenagers with no sign of management. We were not spoken to by any member of staff during breakfast. There was only one table not covered in dirty plates and that was taken while we were waiting for the buffet to be restocked meaning we had to sit at a table with no cutlery/sauces which I had to find myself. The buffet, if you can call it that, consisted of a hot plate of dried up beans, some grilled tomatoes and two greasy sausages which we felt guilty taking as a family walked in just after us. There was no toast or at least we weren't offered any. We received a 20% discount on account of the room being wrongly booked but on the basis of our experience I was unhappy to hand over any money to this poorly ran establishment. If you want an enjoyable stay do not book this hotel, however if you are after poor value for money, terrible service with a poor attitude and a tired hotel this is right up your street!

we stayed here for one night and found the reception staff helpful.. The room itself was very dark and felt cold I know the walls are stone but it certainly didn't feel cosy. The shower wasn't that clean. Management have recognised there is a problem with noise but nothing has been done so far and we were able to hear every noise from the room above. Breakfast was served in a very large room which is definitely lacking in atmosphere.
The location is excellent and a good base for exploring this part of Cornwall.

Recently brought a group of Old Gits to celebrate my 65th Birthday. The men to play and the ladies to go sightseeing and shopping! We all had an excellent weekend. Trudy and her staff, including the Pro. John the Barman was brilliant! They made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it and a wide selection. The Course was in superb condition with wonderful views. Thanks for making it a weekend to remember! We found our rooms to be completely satisfactory and everyone in Group would happily visit again.

A perfect venue for our party of golfers and partners. The staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing was a problem.The rooms if a little tired are very clean and comfortable. The food was good,plenty of it,and a good choice.The golf course is a challenge with some great holes and the greens are in excellent condition.

Well done Lostwithiel.

The word I've seen used on other reviews is tired and I have to agree. The location is excellent very peacefull with good views however the hotel public areas look to be in need of redecorating and generally smartening up, the hotel layout means that the guest rooms are outside in separate small buildings but the outside areas are also in need of tidying and weeding. My room was a good size, reasonably clean with a ensuite shower, but it did have a slightly damp odour. The following morning the breakfast was a buffet style and offered a reasonable but not great choice. The best feature of my stay were the staff, all of which were pleasant and friendly. The location and layout of the hotel are very good but the presentation could do with some attention.

Golf course excellent. Food good as was location. Most of staff very helpful but could be so much better with a little attention to rooms which are tired. Just need new carpets and better presentation to have a lot more going for it

had a 2 day stay, on second day returned to room and found door had been left unlocked and ajar from room clean in the morning? also bathroom window left wide open. room also needed work on its sound proofing, even when doors and windows shut properly! could clearly hear upstairs on there phone and walking about.
breakfast was good as you could help your self. overall whole place could of been cleaner.

Room Tip: book a upstairs room with a self locking door.
