    Characterful romantic accommodation

    A lovely setting for a romantic weekend. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was a little aged but clean and comfy. I would definitely recommend and would consider staying again. The only thing I would say is that there is not much choice for those on a vegan and gluten-free diet, which I think is fairly easy to accommodate for these days, especially when there is a trained chef available.

    Average stay (at best).

    Reception staff were friendly and helpful.Room was much smaller than expected. Toilet was particularly tightly positioned between bath and wall. Room could do with a blackout blind to block out the lighthouse light shining in all night. Service was inconsistent, depending on staff. Waitress on thursday and friday was awful - she was slow, wearing a holey top and spent more time chatting than working. She brought our fried breakfast before our drinks and toast, only to take it away and bring it back cold after we had eaten the toast. In the evening, We asked for a cocktail and could hear the waitresses discussing how to make it- they clearly didnt have a clue. For £12, I expected much better - it was awful. The service was much better on Saturday - different staff who worked hard and cared. Overall, very average at best and we would not recommend it or return.

  • 8.0.Very good

    It’s fair to say that the rooms need updating and I understand this is gradually being done. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room facilities were adequate. The staff in the main were very helpful and polite. Breakfast is excellent, with a wide range of dishes using local produce. Both restaurants provide a good choice and the food served in both is also excellent. The location and views are stunning. The only real downside was the parking provision - it’s tight and you may have to park off-site. That said, I would happily stay again.

    Amazing location overlooking bay with direct access onto coastal path. Beautiful . The public lounges were lively with views of garden and bay. However the decor of bedroom tired and need refurbishing. Bed needs replacing

    Autumn break.

    Food and service very good. Location second to none. Dated small room with creaking floorboards. Fog horn from lighthouse kept us awake during one night of wet weather.

    beautiful spot- would highly recommend visit to the lizard peninsula and the hotel . We had a beautiful view from our room and the staff were helpful and friendly. Food was excellent . hotel bedroom was pretty small considering it was the ocean view room but the bed was very comfortable . En suite was also bit tight space wise but shower was good. As hotel is near the lighthouse we were woken a couple of times during our stay by the fog horn at 4 am .Maybe the rooms at the back of the hotel wouldnt have this issue but then you would miss out on the spectacular view. Hotel location is great for coastal path walking and trip to kynance cove and we were lucky enough to see plenty seals at lizard point. Loved our stay!

    Beautiful location

    Location of the hotel is spectacular. Overlooks the sea with direct access to the SW coastal path. Staff were all lovely and very accommodating. Good selection of choice at breakfast which was included in our stay. Overall, thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Wonderful

    It was amazing, the most relaxing hotel I’ve ever stayed in! The room and bathroom etc are in desperate need of modernization (which is made clear on the website) but other than that it was a perfect 3 nights. The parking was restricted due to visitors coming in for food (food delicious!) but they did their best to accommodate us. Staff were lovely, very helpful and friendly. Tried to book in for another stay but fully booked on the dates we could do! Will definitely go back :)
