Having reviewed this hotel before I am doing it again after taking my Daughter,Son in law and Grandson there for half term week. Sometimes you go back to a hotel that you have enjoyed and the return is just not the same as the first experience. This second visit to the Esplanade was not like this,everything was absolutely brilliant again....

We stayed at The Esplanade recently and were lucky enough to have a sea-facing room. Incredible views! The pool is lovely (the inflatables were a big hit with our children) and also offers a Jacuzzi and sauna room. Heated towels are provided, so there's no need to worry about packing a swimming towel. All of the staff were friendly, helpful...

We had the most stunning view of Fistral Bay from our window. Staff were very helpful, food was good. They were doing a lot of decorating whilst we were there but it didn't interfere with our stay unduly.Great location.

When my partner had told me he booked the hotel I was worried that my 2 year old son might get bored. This was not the case! He loved playing in the indoor play area and loved the swimming pool! All of the staff were really friendly! I exceptionally liked the personal touches, left bed time stories underneath our door...

Visit every 2 years on a church weekend. the food is excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. Rooms are well appointed. Building is a hotch-potch of extensions to a victorian building and won't win any architecture awards, but is clean and freshly decorated. The large dining space is great. Great views from the lounge, dining room and front bedrooms....
