My wife and I stayed here in late November 2010. We wanted a quiet, romantic weekend away - and on the way down, we had the usual feelings of "can this hotel really be as good as the reviews?" - easy answer - yes.
As many other reviewers have said, the hotel is extremely homely and comfortable. We stayed in the Joanna room, which is separate from the main building, but that just made it feel even more private and relaxing.
The outdoor hot tub was just fantastic, and one of the main reasons we wanted to stay here - being outside in -5 temperatures, but in +38 water under crisp blue skies was brilliant and a great way to start the day.
We didn't meet the owners as it happened, but the staff were just wonderful - we were warmly greeted and the service throughout our stay was helpful, attentive and genuine, which always makes such a big difference.
Out of all the meals, it was the full cooked breakfast that stole the show for me - fantastic local produce, masterfully prepared, set us up for a short walk to the Eden Project.
Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel was yet another great touch.
The Brittania pub is just a short walk away, and for any real ale lovers, try the St. Austell Brewery "Tribute" beer - it's great! We also had a good pub meal there, but book, as they do get busy.
This is one of a very few hotels in the World that I wouldn't hesitate to return to, safe in the knowledge that I would be instantly relaxed and have a wonderful stay.
