Didn’t stay at the hotel but my hubby booked me a massage at the spa. The spa uses all Espa products and has a lovely good sized relaxation room and several treatment rooms. Chloe did my BNS massage and she was brilliant it was one of the best I’ve had. Highly recommend.

Our stay at Fistral Hotel was as part of group tour. We had no complaints with our room which had a beautiful view of Fistral Beach with a balcony but as we had paid extra for such a room, we would have been very disappointed if it was not nice. Our disappointment was with the food and service we received while there. As my husband is a coeliac, we had contacted the hotel previous to our visit to ensure that they were aware of this condition and that the food would be appropriate for him. We were assured that there would be no problem. I am afraid that was not the case and as a result my husband was quite sick during his time there. Apart from dealing with my husband's condition, food served on the whole was very disappointing for a 4 star hotel. Also service left a lot to be desired, breakfast was very hit and miss (running out of butter and asking you to eat Flora instead) not enough servings bowls available etc are just some of the issues. Being told dinner was at 7 and not being served till after 8 o'clock was another issue. On the whole, the hotel was a major disappointment. Will not be recommending it to anyone. Perhaps if you were not travelling within a group, these issues would not arise but that should have no bearing on the level of service etc, provided in a 4 star hotel.

Room Tip: Would advise speaking to hotel re room as some were quite small with no view at all.

After a long 8 hour drive we arrived at the hotel to be greeted by the lovely Hayley who sent us straight through to the Bay Bar where she brought us a free complimentary drink and sat and explained checking in and all the hotel facilities
We were put in Room 312 which had a stunning full view of the sea
The room itself was large and bright with a giant bed and I was in heaven upon walking into the enormous bathroom with an amazing stand alone bath also with stunning views of the sea and beach
We decided to stay close after such a long drive and dined in The Dune Restaurant
Amy was brilliant, friendly and cheerful and the food was absolutely delicious
Our first night we slept straight through the night (it was so quiet considering there was a coach party staying) and awoke to the sound of the waves and a stunning view (we left the curtains wide open all night)
I didn't go down for breakfast Tuesday morning as I was nursing a slight Chardonnay hangover ( I blame Amy) but my husband disappeared for over an hour.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we went out every day and upon return every evening ate in the Bay Bar. The meals were enormous but delicious You have to try the Bay Burger and sweet potato fries !!!
Wednesday I opted for the Chicken Burger without the bun and was pleasantly surprised when it was brought out with a salad, Thursday we had toasted Ciabattas
Breakfast choices were plentiful and as my husband opted for cereal, toast, yoghurt and fruit I quite happily tried the Eggs Benedict or Eggs Royals
While using the hotel as base we visited so many places Looe, Polperro, Paignton, Torquay, Newquay, Fowey to name a few and after eating an evening meal we were very happy to collapse in our very large comfortable bed after a long soak in the bath while looking out at the surfers
AND we can't wait to revisit
The food is delicious, the room amazing and the staff are fantastic
Thank you to Hayley, Amy, Jason (also the young man in the apron who served in the bar - no name badge ) and not forgetting Mary who all made our stay the best holiday ever Thank You

The hotel has a great view out over Fistral beach. It is modern and the rooms are clean and well appointed. The highlight is the Spa with pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. We had treatments in the Spa, expensive but very professional and relaxing. The restaurant food is very good. The wine list is a bit of a disaster. It seems to focus on wines priced at £40 -£60 a bottle. If you work hard you will find a page headed wines by the glass that has more reasonably priced wine, and indeed it can be bought by the bottle. Not sure if this is incompetence or a marketing ploy. The wine quality to price was still the worst we found on this holiday. I have just checked out Chateau Musar - £24 in Waitrose retail, £73 in the hotel. Quite a mark up. If the screw tip rioja we had for £28 cost them more than £5 they were robbed. I don't mind paying for wine but these days good wine is not expensive and there is no need to serve inferior quality. That said this is a quality hotel and a good place to stay.

Second visit to this hotel and again it has been a great stay. Service and spa are particular highlights but the best thing is the beautiful view. Recommend getting a sea view with balcony room and go when the weather is on your side.

Room Tip: 3rd floor sea view with a balcony
