We stayed at the Eliot Hotel as part of an Alfa Travel coach holiday and we found the hotel a welcoming place to be. The hotel staff were all well trained and polite and the hotel itself clean and well maintained.
Food in the restaurant was excellent with a good choice which changed daily. The restaurant staff were extremely efficient and the four of us at our table all used to order different items and our particular waitress never wrote anything down but managed to get everything right first time!
Our double room was small but had everything we required, especially welcome were copious supplies of hot water at all times.
Although the hotel only has a two star classification I found it equal or better in many respects than many so called three or four star establishments that I have stayed in during my business travels. The absence of an ironing board and a telephone in our room were things we could manage without, appreciating instead the willingness of the staff to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.
This was the first time we had travelled with Alfa Travel who’s parent company own the Eliot and our whole holiday was extremely enjoyable. Our polite and helpful driver Tony had everything organised for us, making sufficient stops on our long journey down to Cornwall from north east England. The weather was sunny and warm during most of our trip so the air conditioning on our comfortable coach was very welcome.
Overall I would find it difficult to find anything to complain about on our five day holiday, enjoying the trips to Heligan and Eden which were included in the holiday cost and as a result we have now booked another Alfa holiday.
