Good Hotel Guide Review

A ‘very welcoming’ hotel, on a bite-shaped cove in the Lizard Peninsula. There’s no mobile reception – not even a landline in the bedrooms. Instead, from lounge, library, dining room and many of the bedrooms, take in superb, uninterrupted views of the shoreline. Victoria and Nicholas Sanders are the new owners; Zoe Holmes, the previous owners’ daughter, has stayed on as manager. Lawned gardens on two levels lead to the beach; a coastal path starts at the foot of the drive. Fresh fish and lobsters landed in the bay inspire new chef Chris Conboye’s cooking, in the candlelit restaurant. Full Cornish breakfasts. Lounge, bar/restaurant, conservatory. Free Wi-Fi in public areas, in-room TV (Freeview). Background music (quiet classical music or blues). Large sun terrace, garden. Parking. Children over 12, and small to medium-size dogs welcomed (dog-friendly beach). 14 bedrooms (1 on ground floor suitable for disabled). Per room B&B £100–£250, D,B&B £140–£290. Closed Nov–Feb.

Guest comments

'We are annual visitors to this hotel and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere as well as the fine food- the menu changes every day. The hotel is managed by members of the House family who with their staff make you feel very welcome. Plenty of places to visit nearby but if you just want to sit and enjoy the view across to the harbour from the hotel then you won't be disappointed. ' - - July, 2017
'Very pleasant hotel – nicely decorated, comfortable, well run in a personal way. Not too keen on having to choose dinner (every course) after breakfast. We ate in the night we arrived (choosing at about 4pm, which was easier) and had very fresh megrim sole, well presented and served. Breakfast was good as well. Our room was the main draw – the Bay Suite, with a bay window and a side window in the bedroom, anda small lounge with sea view. Bathroom was fine, with both bath and separate shower. Good car parking and nice terraced garden, ' - Lynn Wildgoose - June, 2013
