5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Lovely hotel and our room had amazing views of the sea and across to St Michael's Mount. Staff were really friendly and helpful for the duration of our stay. Good quality room and we eventually found the fridge, which had bottled water, fresh milk (so no horrid long life milk cartons) and some delicious chocolate brownies ! We had evening meal in their restaurant overlooking the sea, which was quite expensive, but thoroughly enjoyed it and the food was excellent. Breakfast was really good quality and, once again, amazing views of the sea and St Michaels Mount. We did have a little bit of noise from the kitchen below us, but nothing that was obtrusive. Highly recommended place to stay.

Beautiful setting and wonderful service
Lovely hotel in a great setting, unfortunately we couldn’t go into St. Michaels Mount as it was closed but the location was perfect. Service in the hotel was great - you can see how much effort everyone has put in to reopen and be COVID-19 safe and it has been a massive change for all of the staff who work there and in the restaurants and pubs etc. Only thing I’d say is that you definitely need to book ahead for dinner as it’s quite busy in the town so will struggle to get anywhere on the night.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Great location but management sadly lacking. No proper check-in, no control over car parking, no where for guests to sit after 10.30 at night - we were visiting our son who lives locally and were told to go to our room so cleaners could clean on first night and on second night were followed upstairs and challenged by night porter as to how many were staying in our room. Disgraceful behaviour - at times I felt the staff beloved the guests were a distraction. Great location but avoid it if you can.
