Good Hotel Guide Review

Seen through walls of windows, the sea is a huge presence at this family-run hotel ‘in a fabulous location’ on the cliffs above a surfers’ beach. Built in 1959 in the California Modern style, it has breezy, Scandi-inspired decor. The bedrooms have been recently refurbished. Some overlook countryside, but most have Atlantic views. Doubles have a bath and walk-in shower or double monsoon shower, an Italian espresso machine. ‘Apartments’ have a king-size bed, a separate bunk room, living area and patio or Juliet balcony. Activities include everything from painting classes to open-air theatre. The spa, bar, lounge, shop, art gallery and two restaurants are at your disposal. Outside, there is a sun terrace, play area, pods, hammocks, a hot tub. You can eat in the Wild Café, a bakery breakfast (cooked items extra), salads and sandwiches (roasts on Sunday); dinner à la carte – maybe smoked haddock and mussel chowder, coconut cauliflower curry, rack of lamb. In The Herring, short carnivore and vegan menus start with small plates for sharing – because it’s a sharing sort of place. (See also sister hotel The Scarlet, next entry.)

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
