Stayed 2 nights in a superior rooms. Although quite expensive it had an amazing view of the beach and sea. The bed was extremely comfortable but could probably do with a valence sheet to hide the tired and stained bed frame.

Booked for two nights and wish we could have stayed for more. Excellent hotel, super clean and the rooms were very comfortable with everything you could want. Staff were all so friendly and welcoming. Food and service were great especially Shona who was very helpful and so lovely to talk to, nothing too much trouble.

Book a standard room at this hotel, so didn't get the sea view. But look at the view you do get if you pay the extra!!!

On arrival, we discovered that we were unable to park due to having to pre-book the car park. This was not made clear on booking.com, so ended up parking down the road. (Where my partner's car was dented by someone opening a door on it - cheers for that.) It was like a maze to get to the room- we...

Unfortunately I stayed in a hotel up the road, but I was here more than there! The staff were friendly and approachable, I went there to watch the Leicester football match and a young adult was behide the bar and I was impressed with his service, when I come back to Cornwall will definitely book this hotel for the nights!

So much better than we thought it would be, very friendly staff, fair size room, huge bed and very comfortable, if a little warm, amazing view from the garden and a few minutes walk from the beach. Great breakfast and would defiantly stay again.
