My wife Mary gave me a night's stay for Christmas. The deal was excellent and the two of us went with our Tibetan Terrier Harold! The room is comfortable with en suite bath and shower with a basin in the room. Our room looked over the side car park and then to the sea so was

The room we stayed in, was at the car park end of the building and had a terrace / balcony with chairs and a table. You could see St Michaels Mount and lovely views of the sea. Very nice. (It also had a wet room) There is no lift, as far as I recall, however we only needed to go up one floor to our room from the bar and dining room. The lounge area is then down a further short set of steps. The hotel and it's garden is on a slope that runs from the road to the sea, so there are two main changes to the ground floor levels as it accomodates this. The road is almost level with the first floor bedrooms and the lounge area is about 12 feet lower with small flights of steps between. I think you can access some rooms from the road with minimal use of stairs, although getting to and from the main social areas will involve more stairs. Hope that makes sense.

Svein, you should write to the HOTEL. See their website where you will find the email address for bookings. I made a comment on TripAdvisor but I do not run the hotel! Good luck.

"Our room was fine even though it wasn't the best- a dog friendly room though with no obvious evidence that dogs had been in the room."
"Ask for a room with the bathroom on the same level as the bedroom. There are lots of stairs and no bellman to help with luggage."
"Pay a little more and go for a terrace or balcony!"
"Most of the rooms have some sort of a seaview but the terrace rooms are nice."
"Sea view and balcony (15)"
