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)

Guest comments

'There is something Enid Blyton-ish about the location and style of the place, romantically set above the coast path. It is a big house in feel rather than a hotel, an endearing mixture of eccentricity and solid, good taste. My room was small but comfortable, with a door to the garden. The meals were delicious. Service had improved since out last visit. staff were polite, helpful and friendly.. ' - Mike Craddock - July, 2016
'We spent three nights. At check-in we were welcomed by a smiley receptionist and shown to our room. It was stunning; the view over the garden seemed to stretch to the sea. It was well furnished, done with sophistication. I was impressed with the broad range of styles and subjects of the pictures throughout the hotel. All staff were helpful and friendly. The barman was knowledgeable on his wine. The food was excellent, especially the fish. The breakfast offered good choice. ' - Eileen Quinlan - June, 2015
'This is a superb hotel. The location is stunningly beautiful with an undisturbed view of the wonderful gardens and sea. The food is excellent and the staff are friendly, helpful and well trained. ' - Angela Fell - June, 2014
