The owner was 'dining in' with some friends last night... and the discussion subject as I walked past was TripAdvisor, although I don't think that Driftwood has anything to worry about. It's a very well run and friendly place. Guests range from pale city types to honeymooners to home counties poshies. Morning newspaper count was around 50% Times, 45% Telegraph with a few Daily Mail sorts and one rather forlorn Daily Express.
For real people, Driftwood is a relatively expensive proposition, but only superficially. It's very good value and actually I'd rather stay here for 3 nights than most other places for a week.
The restaurant has a Michelin award and really is terrific. The novelty of eating food of that standard and sublety with a sea view hasn't worn off yet.
There's a wildflower garden with bees, to sit in, a very restful experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Imagine your perfect holiday - a stylish, privately run Cornish Beach House Hotel, overlooking the stunning Gerrans Bay, near the pretty village of Portscatho, near St Mawes South Cornwall. Driftwood is like no other boutique hotel in Cornwall. Driftwood has the friendly informal service, a michelin star restaurant, and the efficiency you would expect. Where else can you walk down a wooded path, to your own beach and cove? Where else can you lie back on a steamer chair, with a glass of wine, and enjoy an unbroken sea view. Where else can you eat the best, locally sourced food, perhaps lobster caught that morning, or crab from the bay? Whoever you are or whatever your looking for, whether that be a family holiday, a boutique or romantic hotel in Cornwall, Driftwood is perfect for all your needs. At Driftwood, families can be as well looked after as romantic couples or small groups of grown-ups. ... more less
