Good Hotel Guide Review

In an ‘excellent’ spot overlooking the beach, this fun palace is ‘a winning choice for families with young children’, says a recent guest. ‘They really do seem to have thought of everything.’ In fact, with its spa, cocktail bar, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, pottery studio, art gallery, theatre, art and design fairs, playgrounds and kites, it has something for everyone. It’s child friendly, dog friendly, all-round people friendly, with ‘pleasant, helpful’ staff and a ‘relaxing’ vibe that draws visitors back year after year. Sisters Emma Stratton, Deborah Wakefield and Rebecca Whittington are the owners. The style is bright and modern, with Scandinavian decor, lots of floor-to-ceiling windows and a sun terrace. Ask for a sea view in the ‘spotless’ bedrooms; watch the sunset from the fish-focused Herring restaurant. Pizzas, sharing plates and simpler fare are served in the Wild Café. ‘We liked their flexibility in letting us arrive in the morning and use the facilities, even if our rooms weren’t ready.’ Child-free sister hotel The Scarlet (see next entry) is ideal for ‘a more sophisticated stay’. (Diana Goodey)

Guest comments

'An excellent choice for families with young children. They really do seem to have thought of everything. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Excellent location. We liked the food at the Wild Cafe but were less impressed by the restaurant downstairs though we only had one brief meal there. They are very flexible, as they allow people to arrive in the morning and leave at the end of the day, and use the facilities even if their rooms are not available. ' - Diana Goodey - January, 2062
'Everything about this hotel was relaxing and comfortable. My two adult children and my dog were all made welcome by the friendly reception staff. The dog had a little parcel of biscuit bones tied up with a bow, as well as a bed, bowls and towels. My daughter and I usually avoid public rooms, but were happy to be in those here. The cocktails were amazing as was the food. My son had never been to a spa before and was very sceptical about the whole thing. When I was checking out we were still waiting for him to come out of it! He My daughter and I had a few treatments which was relaxing. We were only there for two days, but felt as if we had had a two-week holiday! ' - Sharon Stell - November, 2014
'This is the fourth time we have stayed at Bedruthan and each time it just gets better. We first came when our children were very little and we did wonder whether, now they are 6 and 10, that they wouldn't enjoy it as much. How wrong were we! They had a wonderful time and so did we. The food is superb, the staff are warm, friendly and helpful, the room was spotless, the children's activities are a godsend and we are counting the days until we can come again. Going to Bedruthan is like going home for us. ' - - April, 2014
'We have stayed here before and it always delivers! Fantastic hotel that caters for everyone but always makes you feel special as an individual. Great staff, friendly, helpful and efficient. Great food, fantastic sea views and beautifully decorated rooms. Clean throughout and exceptionally well kept considering its size. There's always plenty to see and do I particularly enjoy the inclusive spa and pool, the infinity pool is beautiful. ' - - July, 2013
