Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Perched high on the Lizard cliffs with views out to sea and the sound of waves at night, the setting could not be more romantic.’ A reader was impressed this year by the location of this Edwardian cathedral of a hotel, built by the Great Western Railway, now owned by the Grose family. Most bedrooms offer a ‘spectacular’ outlook; all have splashes of colour, and tea-/coffee-making facilities. Premier sea-view rooms include home-made biscuits, a Nespresso machine, robes, slippers. A Guide regular found his room ‘generously sized, luxuriously appointed, if a little old-fashioned in decor’. Seasonal Cornish produce takes centre stage, both in the bar, where bistro fare includes mackerel fillets and crab salad, and in the Atlantic View restaurant, where returnees rave over Paul Stephens’s daily-changing menus, ‘especially the freshly landed fish’. For instance, cod fillet, clam and bacon chowder, crispy kale. One hungry walker ‘found the evening meals in both venues a bit ordinary’; ‘a chewy pork chop, an indifferent crab cake, slightly small portions’. Breakfast, however, was ‘excellent’. Eggs Benedict, smoked haddock, and scrambled tofu should satisfy the heartiest rambler. (MC, and others)
