Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The style is one of the unique assets’ at Teresa and Kevin O’Sullivan’s cliff-top hotel overlooking sub-tropical gardens filled with whimsical sculpture and statuary. ‘Taking in all the little pieces of artwork is entertainment in its own right.’ The welcome is appreciated too. ‘The staff were very kind. Realising my husband’s problem with steps they upgraded us to a ground-floor room at no extra cost. Comfortable room. Comfortable bed.’ All bedrooms are individually styled, some with sea and garden views, perhaps an emperor-size sleigh bed or four-poster, an egg-shaped bath. In dining room and brasserie ‘the food is wonderful’. Chef Nick Hawke’s creative menus use local seafood in such dishes as macadamia-crusted hake, Cornish crab, saffron pommes purées, onion fondue, purple sprouting broccoli, crab bisque. You can eat more simply from the lounge menu, perhaps Cornish cheeses or Fowey river mussels. Breakfast has ‘everything you would expect’. And a little more – sausages for guests’ dogs (and chicken for their supper). ‘Our dog received treats, bowl and bed. We could have her with us in the brasserie. This is the most dog-friendly hotel we know.’ (Josie Mayers, BF)

Guest comments

'The most dog-friendly hotel I know. Staff are very kind. Our bedroom was very comfortable ' - JM - May, 2018
'Comforting and welcoming, but the artwork gives it a quirkiness - a bit like walking into Alice in Wonderland - delightfully humorous. Our sea view room was elegant but one or two bits were a bit tired. The food was wonderful, and served in generous portions. Service, though not flawless, was polite, charming and friendly. ' - BF - March, 2016
