Good Hotel Guide Review

Almost all the incoming calls come from the birds at Victoria and Nicholas Sanders’s ‘welcoming hotel’ on the Lizard peninsula. Forgo mobile reception; never mind the lack of landline. Instead, enjoy uninterrupted sea views from virtually every room in the house. Nearly all the bedrooms look across Coverack Bay; the best have a balcony, or French doors that open on to a private terrace. Some rooms may be snug, but all are decorated in a pleasing palette of Cornish seaside hues. Cross the tiered gardens to get to the beach, or head further afield: a coastal path starts at the foot of the drive. Fresh lobster and seasonal fare are served in the candlelit restaurant at dinner, chefs Ric House and Chris Conboye’s menus change daily, according to the catch of the bay. Full Cornish breakfasts.

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
