Myself and a group of friends stayed here for my birthday/christmas party weekend. I cannot fault this hotel. It is a beautiful place, tastefully decorated (some rooms yet to be refurbished to the modern style) and has the skill to provide first class service and environment, but remain relaxed and friendly, making you feel completely comfortable.

We have been staying at Budock Vean for about 25 years, which by definition, puts us in the higher age bracket that some reviewers complain about! We love Budock Vean and come most years, sometimes several times throughout the year. Last time was October 2015. The staff are fantastic, and the food excellent (I doubt you can stay for a...

The staff were friendly and helpful. The bedroom was light, large and spacious. (Able to take the dog!) The gourmet weekend was great value for money, it was nice not to have to make decisions as the menu was already planned with wine to compliment each course. Would partake in this experience again as we met some great people.
