A wonderful find, superb staff, professional yet so very friendly. Only a few inches away from a Michelin Star, your kitchen staff honestly know about flavour and presentation. The choice of dishes is truly amazing, with mixtures of flavours, colours and textures you had never really thought of. The grounds are well cared for and the sculptures are lovely, shame...

It was quiet in November but we still had a great time here, we were offered a complementary room upgrade that looked out to ocean and was fabulous. The setting is great looking out to the bay. We ate here in the standard restaurant and the food was very. Highly recommended and would defiantly return.

We stayed for two nights at the Talland Bay Hotel, it is in a lovely location with spectacular sea views. We booked the hotel having seen it advertised on Sawdays website (which we've found fairly reliable in the past), however we didn't feel it quite lived up to the recommendation in this instance. The room was pricey given we didn't...

Dear Bluejules2020 Thank you for your comments, I am sorry that things did not seem to be more than satisfactory. We are very dog friendly and we have always found that to be one of our charms. We were under the impression this was stated on Sawdays, this is most perplexing and something we will have to look into. It...

This was a well-researched 50th birthday treat for my partner who wanted "a hotel in Cornwall we have never been to with sea views" and what a good choice it was! Dealing with the staff beforehand was easy and helpful and from the moment we arrived and saw the wonderful sea views and the enchanting garden, we knew this was...
