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.
