We stayed here for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed for many more. Although the final few miles of approach through narrow Cornish lanes could put off the more cautious drivers with expensive cars, the eventual arrival is well worth it. The hotel is tucked away in a gorgeous part of the county with an almost private beach a short walk down the private path. The hotel itself is extremely comfortable, accommodating, very tastefully decorated and with fantastic staff. All the staff we met were incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were faultless and had some lovely touches like a Roberts radio which has great quality sound, and a really good DVD and book library for those long leisurely relaxing hours which feel needed when you are here. The bed linen was very expensive and the beds very comfortable. Having a room with a sea view was a bonus and it was lovely to hear the gentle sounds of the waves as you drifted off to sleep. Its so nice you really don't want to leave the hotel!
The breakfasts we had were some of the tastiest I have ever eaten. There is a great choice from traditional fruit, cereals and full english to more unusual choices all cooked fresh to order. You can eat outside on the decking area overlooking the bay and watching the birdlife in the garden -great start to the day!
The evening meals were again, excellent. Top quality cooking beautifully served in a lovely relaxing atmosphere. We can't wait to go back again.
