We stayed in Pentillie for two nights. The service is very friendly and the owners make it a point to be personally involved. The house is tastefully furnished, with paintings of family members dating back centuries. We stayed in the Dewhurst suite, which is really big, with separate living and sleeping rooms, and the bathroom luxurious. The view from the room over the gardens to the river Tamar is spectacular. A walk through the huge grounds to the river and to the old Mausoleum is highly recommended.
The hotel does not offer a formal dinner but you can dine in the nearby restaurants and pubs. If you do not feel like driving you can request an infornal dinner, which you heat up yourself in the oven. If you want to eat in, make sure you tell them on time, preferably right after breakfast! We were too late, which was a pity, as I was quite looking forward to using the AGA and eating in the house. After dinner you can help yourself to a drink from the honesty bar in the morning room and relax.
Breakfast is very tasty and the dining room is bright and friendly.
Children are welcome and there is a heated outdoor pool.
Although Pentillie is a hotel, the owners have succeeded in creating an atmosphere in which we felt totally at home. We will definitely come again. Highly recommended.
