Visited on 7-1-12 for the weekend. On arrival our room was not ready so we had a drink in the bar/ lounge area. This was a fairly formal place despite the big comfy sofas and open fire, i guess it was just more traditional for a place in the country. It was very quiet and not a place we felt we could have dinner in or have a laugh/joke in.
Our room was superb. Very modern, big comfy bed, patio doors with a large balcony and great view of the countryside. Tea /coffee facilities were stocked well and we had a mini fridge. Big plasma tv on the wall was good. Bathroom was spotless with a drench shower, big bath, heated towel rails and very modern basin. Gowns were provided in the room also.
Their was a good choice for breakfast, and cooked breakfast was served. The food was excellent and portions generous. The staff were very attentive.
The spa area was always clean and quiet. The pool is great and I would image once the doors are open in the summer the infinity pool would be lovely. Steam and sauna rooms are unisex and there is a whirlpool adjoining the pool which could get a little cold.
We did intend to workout in the gym but on checking it out decided against it. There was no atmosphere, ie tv, music, all we could here were groans, which isn't very motivating!
Myself and partner had a treatment each in the couples room. The girls were great, really professional and welcoming and made us feel totally at ease. I had body refiner which i would highly recommend and my partner a deep muscle massage which he also enjoyed.
We walked into the town of St Austell but were a little disappointed in that it appears to be purely an industrial town. You would need to travel a little way for more picturesque places. However, we were only there for the weekend so this was not really an issue for us.
Great hotel, great rooms, quiet location, it was what we were looking for from the weekend.
