The local in St. Mawes is second to none in charm. The friendly and helpful staff whisk your car, which you will not need in St. Mawes, away and have you in your room in minutes. All of the charm of St. Mawes is visually present from the rooms or the terrace bar. It is an easy walk to anywhere in the village including the castle from the hotel.

The Tresanton is our favourite restaurant anywhere in the world!

We try to visit at least once a year whenever we are near or staying in St Mawes. Our latest visit during October half term with our young family was once again exceptional and we had another magical evening.

The Tresanton Hotel is an elegant but relaxed restaurant environment immaculately decorated in white and blue with amazing views over the sea.

The service is a absolutely flawless and just the right mixture of formal and friendly but always efficient and attentive and our children have always been made to feel as welcome as the adult guests which is really refreshing.

The food at The Tresanton is in a league of its own. Simple dishes using the finest ingredients and cooked with great skill. They change the menu daily but lobster and chips at The Tresanton, when its on the menu, is about as good as life gets!

Everything we ordered on our latest visit was absolutely delicious and we all tried something from the menu we wouldn’t normally choose, trusting the kitchen to impress us, which they more than did.

We’ve been visiting The Tresanton for over 12 years now and the quality and high standards have remained consistently brilliant, without exception.

The Tresanton in St Mawes is simply the best of its kind.

We stayed at Tresanton for three nights in October 2017. We have been to the hotel before, but not for many years. It was as lovely as we remembered it, as was St Mawes. The hotel almost reflects the village, windy routes with little rooms dotted here and there, which in design acknowledge its location next to the sea.

We had a family suite (room 32), which was slightly away from the main hotel. It had two bedrooms (not large, but large enough) and one bathroom (two would have been nice). It also had a sitting room with a log burner and a well-appointed kitchen. It also had a fantastic terrace, which was large enough to sit out on and had amazing views of the harbour and out towards Falmouth.

We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is great. It has a relaxed atmosphere with very good service. The sitting room is lovely, but the jewel in the crown has to be the dining room, which is bright and white and looks out to the harbour and sea and has a fantastic terrace where you can eat when the weather is good.

Room tip: Room 32 - family suite with kitchenette and living room and great views.

Again another hotel on the Bucket List! It is really stunning but you do need to be fit to stay here. A lot of stairs and no lifts!
Still that said it is a gorgeous property with a lovely team dedicated to looking after you. Our bedroom was located on the second floor with a stunning seaview. Very comfortable - definitely fitted out by a lady as everything little detail had been thought about. The public areas were beautiful as well. It is no surprise that many of the guests staying during our visit were repeat customers.

Room tip: Room 22 - great view but quite a few stairs to negotiate!

Our fifth visit to Tresanton and it was as wonderful as ever.

The food is incredible, the views are unrivalled, the beds are big and ridiculously comfortable, the sofas are the perfect level of squishy and homely to fall back into and enjoy a drink.

But...You would expect all of that if you are paying £250-£500 a night in a hotel.

However, for us it’s the little details and the personal touches that make Tresanton so special.

We first visited in 2011 and over the years some things have changed (new manager, some new staff, some new artwork, a big new very colourful light fitting, an extra balcony or two, and a lovely new beach club) but, actually nothing has really changed and that is why it is our favourite place on earth.

The team that have been there since we first visited are still sensational (professional, engaging, thoughtful, knowledgeable and most importantly human)! The new team members are equally talented and crucially, the whole team have personality and are not corporate Hotel robots.

St Mawes is a special place and the recent investment in The Idle Rocks and St Mawes Hotel potentially could have derailed Tresanton. But whilst both of those properties have a number of positive aspects, neither come close in comparison to Tresanton. When it comes to providing authentic, high quality and understated luxury, Tresanton is peerless.

Tresanton is unique and a cut above any other luxury hotel we’ve ever stayed in.
