Good Hotel Guide Review

There are grandparents who today cherish childhood memories of holidays at this family-friendly hotel. Set into the cliff-top above the sandy beach, it has been owned by the same family since 1959. The interiors have been updated over the decades (out with purple carpet and orange bedspreads, in with Scandi-style), but the walls are still hung with work by Cornish artists, and floor-to-ceiling windows frame the same Atlantic views. The atmosphere is lively and inclusive, with activities for children from dawn until dark, while parents can relax in the spa. It can be rumbustious (‘not for the faint-hearted’, said a reader who visited on a bank holiday), but everything is well organised. Bedrooms come in various configurations, some with a balcony or terrace. You can dine in The Herring restaurant, on such dishes as hake fillet with curry sauce and pea shoots. (‘Food is generally pretty good, and value for money.’) There is simpler dining in the Wild Café, where breakfast brings daily specials such as eggs Benedict. If peace and quiet are what you seek, choose the adults-only sister hotel, The Scarlet (next entry). (SW)

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
