Close to local tourist attractions.

Many guests liked the fact that they could walk to the beach in five minutes. A lot of them have come to Cornwall to visit, amongst other places, the Eden Project which is a mere ten-minute walk from the hotel. If you prefer not to drive whilst on holiday


Quiet, picturesque location.

The hotel is surrounded by nice houses, overlooking the beach just across the road. This tranquil setting was ideal for those who came here to unwind and relax from the hectic city pace.


Excellent level of service.

Negative Reviews


Rooms in need of modernisation.

The decor of the rooms has been described as old and drab whilst the furniture and upholstery were criticised for being of low -quality. The overall impression was that the rooms need to be redecorated and equipped with new, modern furniture.


Not all rooms have scenic views.

Problems with plumbing.

Apart from being very noisy, the plumbing at the hotel has been described as very poor. Guests had problems when showering as the water was either too hot or too cold.
