We found Headland House via Mr & Mrs Smith which has always recommended great boutique hotels, and this is one of the best!!! We stayed for seven very cosy and relaxing nights, owners Mark and Fenella are perfect hosts, friendly, chatty (but not intrusive) and welcoming, just what you want from a boutique hotel. The Hotel is very calm and decorated in a traditional heritage style with warm greys and subtle wallpaper. the rooms are designed to a very high spec with lovely soft beds, a roll top bath and TV and DVD player for sleepy days in bed. The breakfast was amazing, Mark takes charge of the breakfast and a full English (amongst other options) is offered with great locally produced ingredients which is always nice to see. In the afternoon's Fenella lays out a complimentary home made cake to enjoy - her carrot and chocolate cakes are just brilliant with a cup of coffee. The Hotel also has a honesty bar in the evening and has a great library of DVD's to borrow for your room. Fenalla and Mark have a great list of restaurant recommendations, each one we tried was amazing, St Ives has a great standard of food on offer, even fish and chips on the harbor is a must. I would definitely recommend Headland House and before we left we couldn't resist booking in for the following Easter its that nice!!!!
It gets booked up fast so get in there quick!
