Good Hotel Guide Review

Stepped lawns, then buckets and spades in the sand are all that separates this ‘welcoming, relaxed hotel’ from the sea. Following severe flood damage last year, Victoria and Nicholas Sanders have redecorated the entire place top to toe. Coastal cool has been restored to each bedroom (some snug), with Cornish colours, tongue-and-groove panelling and a powerful new shower in the bathroom. Huge windows give nearly all the bedrooms horizon views; the best have a balcony, or a private terrace, accessed through pretty French doors. Bay-landed lobster and chefs Ric House and Chris Conboye’s ‘excellent’ daily-changing menus are served in the candlelit restaurant. Full Cornish breakfasts. A dog-friendly beach awaits just outside.

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
