Good Hotel Guide Review
‘There is something Enid Blytonish about this place, romantically set just above the Coastal Path on the way out of Mevagissey. A big house (rather than a hotel) in feel, it has an endearing mixture of eccentricity and solid good taste.’ Susan and John Gladwin’s small hotel earns a full entry thanks to a regular Guide reader this year, who returned to find it ‘even better than before’. Take in ‘fantastic views’ along the Cornish coast from the house or sub-tropical gardens; within the Arts and Crafts home, there are books, board games, an intimate bar, crackling fires in cool weather. The staff are ‘helpful and friendly in just the right way’. Most of the ‘comfortable, spotless’ bedrooms, simple and pretty in seaside colours, look on to the water. The village is a ten-minute downhill walk away, but stay in for dinner: chef Adam Cawood’s modern meals (perhaps monkfish, hazelnuts, peas, wild garlic velouté, monk’s beard) are ‘excellent’. ‘The highlight was a delicious strawberries-and-cream ice cream that was a magical combination of rich flavours.’ Strap on your boots in the morning: ‘The Coastal Path is simply glorious.’ (Mike Craddock)
