Stayed for two nights over half term and had a lovely really good time. Hotel ideal for families with children as Lots of activities and things to do (both inside and out). Have to say all the staff at reception were very friendly too and gave some good recommendations.

The external door is locked between 7pm and 7am daily - just ring reception and they will let you out). They...

We arrived at around five pm and were greeted by happy smiling staff who gave us all the info. We needed on the hotel. Our room was so lovely.

Used this hotel as a base for 4 day stay to visit various places in Cornwall. We booked a sea view room, recommended, best sea views ever. Nothing was too much bother, rooms very clean and large with comfortable chairs, ideal for just looking over the sea. Excellent breakfast, I believe that they keep us old people away from the...

We visited the Sands hotel to use the gym as we were staying nearby. The people on reception were extremely helpful, gave us details and the daily price was very good. Although the gym is small the equipment is all fairly new and in excellent condition. We went at a quiet time of the day so found plenty of space....

Very clean and the room was spacious! The breakfast was just fine. The facilities are ok; however there are no jacuzzi. The staff are very kind, friendly and smiley! I could stay again, but don't expect too much.
