Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Hotel looks fantastic in the pictures but our room didn't have air conditioning and as a result the room was stuffy. The quality of the bed and mattress was poor. As a result we did not sleep well at all. That somewhat ruined our trip to Cornwall.

Misleading description, so bad I didn't stay!
I booked a double room and was given a twin, apparently they didn't have any doubles even though I booked 3 weeks earlier. The room was small and well worn. I asked where the hotel parking is and was told that there is a public pay and display over the road. So "Self parking" with a green tick means no onsite parking available for me. They do have some parking but only for about 15 cars. I asked for my money back because they failed to give me the double room I ordered and there was no parking - they refused. I walked out disgusted and found a decent hotel nearby. So as far as I am concerned they stole my money and after complaining to they did nothing.
