Great Experience Every Time

"My husband and I are local and visit this hotel for a staycation most years. We always have a lovely time and feel welcome by the lovely staff. The development has made it even better with fantastic new spa facilities."

Breathtakingly wonderful

"The room was magnificent, fresh and clean, with all the modern facilities that you may want. The coffee machine was very loved with the cookies and fresh milk provided to go along with a cuppa."

Keena M,

"I had a large room overlooking the sea and it was tastefully decorated. The food was gorgeous and plentiful. The waiting staff were very attentive and helpful. It was in a perfect setting."

Amazing like always

"There's a reason why I choose to stay here year after year. I visit Cornwall once a year and this place will always be my hotel of choice. The food is AMAZING, staff are always helpful and welcoming."

Abi S,
Beautiful hotel in beautiful setting

"The service was impeccable. The room had a balcony with a view of the sunrise over the sea. Beauty, comfort, rest. It's right next to a lovely beach and not far from the town centre. The Spa is second to none."

Sarah from Devon,
The Best Spa In Cornwall

"I have just had the pleasure of going to the newly refurbished St Michaels Spa with a group of friends. I had the most amazing time. They have a really good thalassic, hydrotherapy pool. When you stepped into the water it was so warm and clear and felt like the most luxurious bath."
