This is one of Cornwall's top hotels. The restaurant food is Michelin standard and the service from the restaurant team matches some of the best in the world. Yes really!!
It also offers great value for money.
Whatever you do don't loose your head chef!.

The personal attention and hospitality of the owners made this stay outstanding. Not to mention the stunning views and convenient South West Coastal Pathside location. It is a steep walk to the private beach - but worth it! Clean cool colors of the hotel and driftwood decor put you in instant holiday-mode. In true country house style - early morning tea or coffee are delivered to your room. Gourmet food was delicious with the emphasis on excellent local produce - without being over-fussy. We stayed in the main building, but the hotel has several bungalows perfect for families. Nothing negative to say about this hotel - we will definitely be back!

You can believe what you read, the rooms don't have a safe. You stay will not include bathrobe slippers and there wasn't an ironing board in the room. Those things matter not a bit. I went to dinner with a slightly ruffled shirt under my jumper, I left my belongings in the room safe in the knowledge this is at the end of an isolated lane on an isolated peninsular, not the Bronx and my feet were toasty warm throughout the stay.

Furthermore, we dined in a spectacular restaurant where the waiters and waitresses spent time talking to us passionately and honestly about the food. We ate captivated by a view that is undeniably stunning, the food was fantastic and personalised - my wife's a vegetarian and they'd already prepared new dishes for her second meal of the stay . The rooms were comfortably furnished, decorated on the right side of contemporary-traditional (perhaps too much driftwood if I was being picky) and perhaps our bed (Room 11) was a little on the soft side, albeit with super-smooth linen.

We didn't turn the TV on, it just didn't feel right to interrupt the peace and stillness, just a bit of Radio 3 on the Roberts DAB radio. We used the hotel's 'private' beach, wandered the immaculate grounds, ate the most delicious granola on the sunny breakfast terrace and had coffees delivered each morning for 7.30 (the papers arrive later in this remote little outpost so it's not too much of an imposition to pick yours (free) from the table in the breakfast room around 9am).

It's the little things that also matter to me: some of the fish is caught in the bay right below the hotel, the waiters refold your napkin if you leave the table, they filled our flask for a walk on the coast at no cost, and re-made our bed without feather pillows instantly the moment we mentioned it. It was a truly personal, and not intrusive level of service. Nothing was too much trouble.

My one fear is that more people will discover this fantastic little family-run hideaway and we'll struggle to get a room in future.

Room Tip: Seek out a room facing (South West) toward Portscatho to make the most of the views

This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in.Everything was perfect. The room was a good size, with sweeping views over the sea, and coastal path.The bed was very comfortable.The menu, which did not change over the 3 nights we stayed, was extensive, enough to have something different each night. There was a "special" addition on one night.The food was great quality,and nicely presented. We were never made to feel rushed at dinner, it was a long leisurely affair. The breakfast was also exceptionally good, I have never tasted such good home made granola. Not a packet or sachet in sight, everything home made.
I can't think of a single negative thing to say about Driftwood.We were sorry to leave. Hope to go back sometime soon.

This place is stunning - the best view perhaps I've ever seen from a hotel room.Very relaxed and unstuffy, very accommodating staff (when we needed to wash muddy clothes even though they don't do laundry service) The room was beautiful and a good size.

The food was very good indeed - we ate the 3 course set dinner on 2 nights in a row and loved it but probably wouldn't do that again as I personally prefer not to have that much food 2 nights in a row on consecutive days.Saying that the portions were well balanced.

We spent £816 in 3 nights which included 3 breakfasts, 2 dinners,wine, port and teas.

It is very peaceful and serene and we will certainly return once we have saved up again.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a sea view - it is to die for !
