Good Hotel Guide Review
Clean, contemporary design, eco credentials and ‘wonderful views’ attract guests to this voguish, adults-only hotel overlooking ‘a classic Cornish bay’. ‘A special mention, too, for the engaging staff who managed to find a charging device for my prehistoric phone,’ says a Guide reader in 2017. With a private balcony or courtyard terrace, every one of the ‘excellent bedrooms’ – some small, others spacious enough to have a generous sitting area – has its own piece of the sky. Guests prone to bashfulness, be warned: in many rooms, a bathtub in the bedroom or a loo behind frosted glass ‘offer little privacy’. Spend the day in ‘well-maintained’ swimming pools, or in the lantern-lit spa treatment rooms; further afield, the South West Coastal Path runs in both directions from the doorstep. In the restaurant overlooking the water, chef Tom Hunter’s ‘first-rate cooking’ is distinctly Cornish, with vegetarian options (perhaps Jerusalem artichoke tarte Tatin, smoked Westcombe ricotta, white bean purée) to tempt the most ardent carnivore. Guests-to-be with children in tow should check out sister hotel Bedruthan Hotel and Spa (see previous entry). (Nick Patton, and others)
