Good Hotel Guide Review

There are lots of good things to report about this family-friendly spa hotel this year. Bedrooms, bathrooms and public spaces have all been refurbished. The four-acre garden has had subtle landscaping. The library has hundreds of new books. The sleek new look updates rather than obliterates the legacy of the coastal manor’s original owner, Sir Charles Hanson, MP for Bodmin and one-time Lord Mayor of London. Bedrooms in the main house have a soft grey wooden floor, vintage furniture and handmade oak bed. Those in the courtyard annexe have a more modern feel with designer furnishings and wallpapers. Children’s rooms have bespoke bunk bed and desk. Head chef is Wesley Pratt, who works with the best local producers, from fishermen and dairy farmers to ice-cream makers, producing both casual and fine dining. Themed afternoon teas, such as a Beatrix Potter-inspired edible garden, are another speciality. Breakfasts are a hit with the whole family, with a bounteous buffet and hot dishes cooked to order.
