Good Hotel Guide Review

It is not that they’ve put away childish things at this contemporary hotel set into the hillside above Mawgan Porth beach. It remains very family-friendly, but there’s plenty for adults, too, from a spa with a sensory garden, to cocktails on the bar terrace, a tranquillity space, sunset suppers in the Herring restaurant. ‘My single room was crisp and comfortable,’ writes a trusted reader. ‘Despite being very small, it avoided being institutional.’ Her son, his wife and children ‘seemed happy enough’ with a family room in ‘an outlying concrete stretch of the complex’. All rooms have light Scandi styling, fresh milk, local toiletries. Some have a sea view through floor-to-ceiling windows; a private patio. On an Easter weekend the place was ‘packed to the gills, and for most of the time guests and their children were managed brilliantly’. School holidays are busy, and ‘meaningful changes’ are afoot for other times. At night, Gareth Saddler’s locally sourced dishes include gurnard, salsify, spring onions, warm potted crab. There’s a children’s menu in the Wild Café, while kids’ clubs and activities, evening entertainment and babysitting give parents a break. (Susan Willmington)

Comments about Bedruthan Hotel and Spa

Fantastic hotel. Amazing sea views. Great service. Choice of restaurants. Relaxed atmosphere. Fabulous spa area. Perfect for couples or families with young children - Elaine Kimber - October 2018
Quite an experience over the Easter weekend, not for the faint-hearted. The hotel was packed to the gills, and most of the time it was managed brilliantly. Food pretty good and good value. Service creaky at times. My single room was small, crisp and clean. family room a bit basic. - Susan Willmington - April 2018
