Booked a luxury Woodland Room for 2 nights for our wedding anniversary. Gorgeous room, huge comfy bed. Everywhere spotless, lovely view across the grounds. Food quite expensive but absolutely worth it, restaurants, bar and terrace beautifully decorated with lovely atmosphere. Definitely stay in and eat in the Brasserie or Restaurant, you won't find better food anywhere.
Had a couple of treatments while husband went off to play golf (choice of 3 golf courses within few minutes drive to keep him happy). Had amazing massage and pedicure. Great base in the heart of Cornwall, but no need to leave the hotel if you don't want to! Go for a stroll around the grounds, have a swim in the infinity pool, use the steam room, sauna, jacuzzi and gym, eat wonderful food, have some treatments, read a book on the balcony, sit in the bar and play board games, total therapy for body and mind.
The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are very close and thoroughly recommended if you insist on getting out for the day. Charlestown is a tiny place but worth a visit, totally unspoilt and charming. Fowey and Padstow both lovely but don't bother going into St Austell, unless you desperately need to go to Asda or Tk Maxx! It's got all the shops you need but definitely not picturesque.
Staff always helpful and friendly, they all seem to love the place and their jobs, can't blame them! Cannot wait to go again - booked for Valentines Day as soon as we got home. Real retreat for special occasions or just need to chill and be spoilt.
Just make sure you book your meals and treatments in advance to avoid disappointment. When you're wandering around the place seems very quiet and tranquil, but you'd be amazed how many people are in the restaurants. Even when they're full they aren't noisy if you're looking for a romantic meal. Can be cheaper to book a room only, and pay for meals separately, depending on deals available, make sure you check this out carefully.
