About
Description
We are situated in a spectacular location at the Lizard in Cornwall. A lovely sandy cove nestles beneath the Hotel, and the Cornish Coast Path runs through the gardens and cliff lands. A place in which More to walk, to eat and drink well and to set aside the cares of the world. Unspoilt scenery, outstanding cuisine (AA Rosette and RAC Dining Award) and a healthy lifestyle, we are also home to Britain's most southerly webcam. Less

The hotel has a fantastic position on the Lizard and our expectations were high. The suite we had was large but the bathroom was tiny with an inadequate shower. The mattress on the bed had seen better days and the room could do with a...More

I couldn’t agree more with VogelVonDene’s review. This place has a stunning location and masses of potential to be great but appears lacking at moment. We stopped by for a cream tea on Thursday 27 September. The waitress was surly, dispassionate and cold. She was...More

When we drove up to this hotel, I was in awe. The view is stunning. What a gorgeous bay and lighthouse. There is also an abundance of gorgeous purple hydrangeas and agapanthus in the grounds. The hotel itself seemed quite old worldy inside- a bit...More

Redruth is nearest station. Busses can go from there. Walking is the best form of transport around the hotel . Best contact the hotel for more advice.
