Spring break
Small friendly hotel with beautiful views over the coast and many walks along the clifftops where we could see seals playing. Delicious food Remote but within reasonable driving distance of some main attractions - probably not a hotel for families but don't rule it out.

Relaxing Short Break
The hotel's location is the biggest attraction. The view over the bay is breath taking and this can be enjoyed from the terrace restaurant. The outdoor terrace is also a place to take most advantage of the view although during our stay the weather didn't allow this. The coastal path is accessible from the hotel and there is an easy walk into Lizard village. The breakfast and evening meal in the Terrace restaurant were very good, fresh local produce and the staff attentive. We had a country view room which was small but very clean with a comfortable bed. The only down side because the hotel is well over 100 years old the floors were creaky and the water pressure in the over bath shower was low. Ample amount of very hot water. Overall we had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay. We would go again.
