Stayed at this property over a cold weekend in November. Despite the time of year and the weather, the hotel was quite busy. The hotel was well staffed for the number of people there and all the staff I encountered were friendly and accommodating, especially in the restaurant.
I had a queen deluxe room at the end of the west wing, the most striking aspect of which was a large wood burning fireplace. Alas, no wood was provided to try it out (probably a good thing) but the room did have a faint but not unpleasant, wood smoke smell, The room was large with ample seating and six lamps so visibility was not an issue. The bed was comfortable (no pits), there was a small food prep area with a microwave and bar fridge and ample hot water. Best part of the room was that it was quiet. Even though there were kids running around in the hall, the room had a double door entry which blocked out all but the loudest noise. The AC/heat unit worked very well and it too was quiet unlike most hotels. The windows in the room were screened and could be opened when the weather is warmer.
I ate all my meals in the restaurant and both dinner and breakfast selections were ample and reasonably priced.
The atmosphere of the property is more lodge-like than hotel as the dominant decor is heavy wood beams and dark colours. The room furnishing were also wood (pine). That along with the fireplaces everywhere made it perfect for a cold fall weekend.
Lots of parking, internet worked fine and there is a fitness room with newer equipment. A separate card is required from the front desk to access the fitness room. This is a bit inconvenient but it ensures only people actually using the equipment have access to it.
If you are travelling to our through Cornwall and need hospitable accommodations, I definitely recommend staying here. less
