Good Hotel Guide Review
Wake to the sound of seagulls and views upon a sunlit bay at this chic, privately owned hotel, in a ‘spectacularly’ converted Victorian seamen’s mission on the waterfront. There’s much that’s pleasing here, from the ‘tastefully rejuvenated’ public areas to the ‘exceptionally friendly and helpful’ staff and ‘very good’ food. ‘Clean, fresh, contemporary’ bedrooms, many with views over the estuary, are impressively well stocked: find biscuits and bottled water, books and DVDs, local guides, earplugs, umbrellas and raincoats. ‘I liked the fridge on the landing with little jugs of fresh milk – a thoughtful touch.’ In the informal restaurant, chef Ryan Kellow cooks classic French dishes with a Cornish twist – try Fowey River oysters, local scallops, West Country cheeses. ‘The sun streams into the restaurant at breakfast time.’ Martin Nicholas is the manager. Help is offered with parking, ‘a substantial walk away’. Open-plan lounge, bar, restaurant with seating area (closed for lunch Tues Easter–Sept). Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV. No background music. Civil wedding licence. Waterside terrace (alfresco dining). Children over 12 welcomed. Parking permits supplied. 11 bedrooms. Per room B&B £190–£335, D,B&B £265–£410. Set dinner £30–£37.50.
