Carbis Bay Hotel & Estate
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Carbis Bay
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 September 2017

This hotel forms part of a very large estate that was purchased very many years ago. It has its own award-winning beach, The widest range of food anyone might desire is just one of the many accolades that apply but it is the general friendly helpfulness that from the management down that is so welcome and rare in these days of staff only doing the bare minimal to keep job.
If you look up Carbis Bay Hotel on Google you will see their promotional pictures and texts,

Room Tip: There is a very wide range of rooms to cater for most needs which can be discussed on their very bus...

We were complete beach bums for 2 days.

Concerned about getting food as husband needs Gluten free, but shouldn't have been. The BBQ on the beach went up to the hotel to get GF rolls, it was the most amazing burger!

Staff had a lot to contend with but felt they kept up a professional and personable service.

See you next year!

Only visited for a treatment in the spa with my mother-in-law but it was the best treatment we'd both ever had! Unfortunately it isn't much of a spa and is more of a hotel what offers treatments, so we decided not to pay the extra £30 just to use a pool with screaming kids diving into it sit on lounges around the pool which we then would've had to listen to screaming kids. The treatment itself was amazing. I definitely recommend the lava shell back and leg massage. The girls did an amazing job! The food was also very yummy, until bugs started to fall on us in the pavilion, but the staff happily moved us to another table.

Dear Ella,
Your treatment does sound amazing - so pleased you both enjoyed it so much.
The pool is much quieter now and our pools are heated year-round if you would like to come again. We have won many awards for our Spa - did you know there is also a treatment room on the beach and a new hot tub looking straight out to sea?

From the first greeting we received from Kelly in reception we knew we were in for a treat
The staff were all incredibly helpful and polite, the food was outstanding with a great menu choice including specials of the day, cooked and presented superbly
We upgraded to an apartment very spacious and clean although could do with a little TLC
The hotel is set right on Carbis Bay which is truly beautiful a lovely part of Cornwall

I booked a night at Carbis Bay Hotel as a treat for my mum. The hotel is beautiful and very well kept. We arrived earlier than the allowed check in time, our room wasn't ready but one of the reception staff took my mobile number and called as soon as a room was ready.

I was surprised that the hotel did not have a lift to the upper floors, although my mum can walk she does have difficulty with a lot of stairs, it would be helpful if this is clearly noted on the website. Also we were unable to use the spa/pool as there were no handrails down the main steps of the pool, the hot tub or to the spa itself. Installing of some handrails in this area I'm sure would be appreciated by older customers and/or those with a slight walking disability.

We are at the restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the service on all occasions was good and the food was lovely.

Overall a good stay.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your visit with your Mum and pleased you both enjoyed our restaurant. If you come again, do try our Beach Club Restaurant down on the beach or our lovely new Gannet Inn, also in Carbis Bay. We offer dining packages which include all 3. We do have some rooms and apartments with easier access and appreciate your comments.
