Good Hotel Guide Review
The ‘wonderful sea views’ from this ‘fantastic’ hotel are but part of its charm: it is equally praised for its ‘pleasant, helpful staff’, ‘most delicious food’ and ‘great atmosphere’. It is owned by brothers Charles and Edmund Inkin, whose Gurnard’s Head, Zennor, and Felin Fach Griffin, Felin Fach (see entries), have the same carefree feel. (‘It’s a pleasure to recommend them all.’) A ‘youthful, buzzy’ spot, the hotel has plenty of activities to suggest: yoga weekends, foraging walks, a sailing trip with a seafood lunch. Still, there’s always room to simply gather in the bar, as did Guide readers, over evening games of bridge. Simple, cheering bedrooms are decorated with Cornish art. Each one is different: a room with a balcony taking in the panorama was deemed ‘excellent’; a smaller one ‘with no view to speak of’ was less liked. At lunch and supper, dine on creative, seafood-heavy dishes, perhaps hake, pinto beans, monk’s beard, nduja mayonnaise, while gazing over to St Clement’s Isle. A good base for local exploration: ‘We walked to Newlyn one morning to see the fishing boats; another day we took the bus to the Penlee gallery in Penzance.’ (EO, BW, Michael Eldridge)
