Good Hotel Guide Review
An eco-friendly, low-tech ethos meets indulgent, high-spec style at this adults-only hotel in ‘a superb situation overlooking a classic Cornish bay’. ‘The ultra-modern design is intriguing and attractive; the staff are charming and efficient; the food is very good,’ says a Guide reader this year. It is the grown-up sibling of family-friendly Bedruthan Hotel and Spa (see previous entry). From the airy reception lounge to the five levels of bedrooms, glass walls bring the wild Atlantic almost indoors (guests are encouraged to turn off their portable devices in public areas, to better take in the surroundings). ‘Our spacious, comfortable room, on the lowest floor, opened on to the grassy slope leading to the beach. A spectacular clifftop walk begins almost immediately. The only caveat: the toilet, in a small wet room behind frosted glass, had no real privacy.’ (The cool, contemporary feel might not suit all tastes: a guest in 2016 thought his room ‘stark’.) Chill out with any of the ‘New Age-type therapies and activities’ on offer – ‘though there’s no pressure to avail oneself of them’ – then sit down to a modern menu while watching the waves wash in.
