Driving down a typical tiny Cornish road you would not expect to find such a beautiful setting. Turning left into Talland Bay Hotel I couldn't believe my eyes, I didn't know where to look first, huge trees with fairies swaying in the breeze, cheeky mysteriously looking elf sculptures, wooden toadstools and a magnificent huge snail and not to mention the view of the ocean with the suns rays glistening on it like fairy dust. I knew our birthday weekend was going to be a fantastic one and we certainly wasn't disappointed. The 3 of us (myself, hubby and our dog) arrived at the reception, again, I didn't know where to look first, the decor is amazing, very unusual and quirky, a very unique interior with no expense spared. The gentleman at reception was very attentive and made us feel very welcome straightway and obviously loves dogs. We were shown to our room, the door opened and wow! it was gorgeous, there were birthday cards for my husband and I and also there was a blanket and a homemade dog biscuit for our dog. The proprietors have 3 dogs one of which is the most friendliest Tibetan Terrier and got on famously with our dog, they had such a great time running around on the lawn together, other guests dogs joined in too, it was great fun! We stayed at Talland Bay Hotel for 2 nights and both evenings we ate in the brasserie where we and our dog were made so welcome, there were 4 dogs sat with their owners, all very well behaved which might of had something to do with the plate of white chunks of moist chicken with a napkin 'to wipe their paws', which was brought to us when we sat down, it looked far to good to give our pooch, he couldn't believe his luck! We weren't disappointed with our meal either, the homemade fish cakes were huge and absolutely lovely and the mussels were to die for, they have a net of fresh mussels delivered everyday from the local fish market. My husband loved his fillet steak, very tender and cooked to perfection, one of the best fillets he's had. Unfortunately didn't make it to puddings but I'm sure they would of been as fantastic as everything else. After dinner headed back to our beautiful room and had the most amazing nights sleep in our massive bed, the sheets were white and crisp, there were also baby soft white towelling robes hanging in the wardrobe and in the bathroom plenty of 'The White Company' toiletries.
I hope everyone gets a chance to stay at Talland Bay Hotel as you will not be disappointed, all the staff really did make our staying a memorable one :)
