Good Hotel Guide Review
A short stroll from the beach, this ‘top-of-the-class’, ‘exceptionally family-friendly’ hotel is ‘in a great cliff-top location’ overlooking the sea. Among the numerous activities for young guests, there are children’s clubs, games rooms, outdoor play areas, holiday programmes and a choice of swimming pools. Accompanying grown-ups might sign up their offspring for two hours of complimentary childcare, then avail themselves of the ‘fantastic’ spa and fitness facilities – a sensory spa garden takes visitors from cedar wood sauna to seaweed-and-salt scrub – or one of the ‘many restful spaces in which to relax’. (‘Avoid the school holidays if you’re after a really quiet break.’) Bedrooms have a sunny Scandinavian air; picture windows in sea-view rooms give on to the breathtaking coast. Families may choose to eat at the casual Wild Café, with its small plates, soups and pizzas; its grown-up cousin, the Herring, is for sunset suppers over deep-fried Porthilly oysters with dill mayonnaise, red wine shallots, or Tregothanan Estate venison, potato dauphinoise, cauliflower puree, spiced date sauce. Adults-only The Scarlet, for ‘a more sophisticated stay’, is nearby (see next entry).
