Lovely friendly hotel, we stopped by on the off chance of having a cream tea....so glad we did, the scones are the best I have ever eaten and trust me I am a connoisseur of the Cornish cream tea. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the terrace has views across the headland to Port Isaac. Fabulous find, we are definitely coming again, this time to stay in the hotel. Can highly recommend.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in early August 2018 with our little 15wk old puppy.

- Very friendly service especially from Arnold who was funny, attentive and always helpful
- Beautiful house which is charming and with nice period features
- Our room called the “love shack” was inside the gardens which are beautiful and have a wildness to it. Our puppy loved exploring the gardens and the duck pond
- Quiet and peaceful location with some nice views over the fields and towards the water in the distance. Still very short drive to Polzeath, Rock or Port Isaac

Areas to improve:
- Building next to the “love shack” isn’t very pretty and could use some remodelling on the outside to fit in better

Our wait staff, Pamela and Arnie, could not have treated us better. Jamie the manager is very accommodating. There are windows on three sides and a beautiful deck. You may eat outside with your dog. The food was very good and cream tea excellent scones.

Great view and a pristine location. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is great with several nearby waterfront villages. Walking trails nearby and a great place to sit and enjoy the countryside.

Our trip around Cornwall took us to our first hotel. Prior to this we stayed in really excellent B&Bs. The Longcross Hotel sits in lovely grounds but as we were only staying one night we didn't have time to explore them. The house was impressive, but needed a good spruce up on the inside; carpets were shabby and skirting boards needed attention, there were cat hairs on a velvet covered chair in one of the common areas. We had a large and superficially splendid room on the first floor, with a huge leather couch, TV and a king sized bed (two singles, conjoined). But there were small irritants; we couldn't connect to the wifi, unsurprising given that we had been given the wrong password in the guests' information booklet. When we did get on, the coverage was dire, though probably not the hotel's fault. My other half switched on his bedside lamp which promptly blew. He requested a new bulb and was given one that didn't fit. There was no complimentary drinking water though there was a kettle and tea and coffee. The obvious imperfections of the accommodation were mitigated by the food on offer in the restaurant. The Longcross has a good chef and we were served by an efficient and friendly waiter. We enjoyed a delicious main meal of fillet beef strips in a wonderful sauce accompanied by Dauphinoise potatoes and a selection of beautifully fresh vegetables that were properly al dente. We followed this with sticky toffee pudding and rhubarb crumble; both delicious. The breakfast was good too and this made up, in some way, for an otherwise disappointing experience. Some reviewers have praised the service here, but it wasn't our experience, alas. This hotel needs a bit of money spent on it and its staff need to up their game. But to the restaurant and its staff - top marks.

Thank Mary H
