This hotel is very special. It is set on the edge of a beautiful golf course and the view from the front windows are stunning (see photos). The receptionist was unfailingly chatty, friendly and helpful as were the housekeeping staff. The room was probably the best we've ever stayed in with definitely the most luxurious and comfortable bed. The restaurant looked nice but we used the bar as the tables and chairs were comfortable, food gorgeous and were massive portions.
The hotel is obviously geared up to large groups of golfers who certainly make themselves heard, especially at breakfast. They are well catered for by the breakfast staff who had the job of getting their evening orders in and bringing them omelettes or anything else they wanted that was not available at the buffet. We could only look on with envy as the breakfast buffet was pretty limited and, for me, very under cooked. One young lady did ask my wife if she would like a poached egg and one asked us for our room number as well as asking if there was just the two of us at a four person table and then pointedly removed the cutlery. There were never any staff around to show us to tables when we came down in the mornings.
I had already mentally written the trip advisor review after the first night and wanted to use words like 'exceptional' and 'perfect' and setting aside breakfast it is.

Room Tip: Front rooms have best view and second floor the best (there is no lift)

Went with my pals for a golf day at a venue I.d never heard of - Bowood Park, Lanteglos, Cornwall. The course was in immaculate condition despite heavy rain the previous few days. Many challenging holes, some in the most beautiful of locations. Ate in the clubhouse from the specials board - good food in a very comfortable setting. Not bad value for the quality provided. The hotel looked good and some very special 2-night b&b deals on offer. Will return.

Very clean room, good restaurant and very helpful staff. Ideal location for visiting Tintagel and Boscastle and close to Atlandtic Highway for further destinations. Buffet style breakfast with plenty of choice

Our Navman took us a very winding way to get here, not sure if there might have been a better way. Anyway the hotel is very nice and the staff are very friendly. Our room was very nice and quiet. Going down to the bar for a pre dinner drink we were surprised to see it crowded by a very large group of businessmen who had had an extended lunch in the dining room. We ordered bar food, a couple of curries which were very tasty. Unfortunately there's obviously no such thing as RSA here as despite several of the businessmen being well affected by alcohol, one even falling off his bar stool, they continued to be served for some time. We made the mistake of making eye contact with one (Bart) and were subjected to his slurring inappropriate intrusion for some considerable time. This rather spoiled what should have been a pleasant stay. I can understand that the club needs to book large functions like this but it also needs to police their behaviour to avoid disturbing other guests.

Room Tip: Ask if there any functions on
