My husband, 2 sons (ages 4 and 7) and I stayed here last weekend. The position of the hotel is amazing and there are wonderful walks/hikes/trails along the coast directly outside of the hotel grounds. We stayed in a deluxe room with 2 rollaway beds (a bit tight but manageable). The room was fine, nothing spectacular but the sea view from our room was breath-taking (almost felt like you were on a boat).
The exterior of the hotel is quite weathered and in need of a paint job. We were told the winter had been bad and they intend to do it when its dry.
The food was surprisingly bad. We arrived on a Friday evening and had dinner there. The kids had an order of sausages that were inedible and had to be sent back (so hard I couldn't cut through it with a knife). The grown-up food was slightly better. We thought surely breakfast would be better... absolutely not. There was not much selection for the cold buffett (no cheese, ham, tomatos or cold-cuts), no sliced fresh fruit (mainly stewed prunes and apricots) and a little mixture of cut apples and another fruit in a sauce. We ordered scambled eggs which were very strange tasting and looking. On two days, our drinks orders (hot chocolate, coffee and peppermint tea) didn't come until after we had finished our meal. I ordered brown bread and was later told, they were all out.
The kids club was very nice and the games room (snooker, Wii, table football) were also much enjoyed by all.
The wifi and mobile phone connection is very poor.
The spa is in a separate building. On our final day, bank holiday Monday, we asked reception if we could use the pool and were told there were swimming lessons going on and therefore, pool closed to others. We were very surprised on a bank holiday the pool would be closed. Frustrated we packed up our luggage and went to breakfast -- en route, we were told the reception made a mistake and pool was indeed open. At this point, all bathing suits, and room was packed up and ready to be vacated. Very frustrating.
As this was our first trip to Cornwall, we expected some cute /quaint villages nearby. However, we didn't really find any but perhaps we were just didn't know the area well enough. On our ride back to London, we stopped at the Eden Project which was very interesting...would recommend.
