This boutique hotel is in an exquisite location with terrific coastal views. We had a standard room which was really nice and comfy. It was excellent. However the main reason that we stayed was for the dining experience. Wow we were not disappointed. The service was brilliant with very attentive helpful staff and the food from the kitchen was something else. Chris Eden is a Michelin star chef and it shows with what the kitchen produced for us. Unlike some other chefs/cooks in Cornwall he is not a one trick pony just cooking fish. The dishes we had were many and varied and the flavours and textures were amazing. It was a real pleasure to eat the in the restaurant. Thank you so much.

Room Tip: A standard sea view room in the hotel is excellent

We spent a delightful two nights relaxing at this small hotel nestling on the cliffs on the Roseland peninsula. The room was very comfortable with a wonderful view over the sea. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. It was a pity we were here in November because the grounds including the private beach would have offered peace and solitude from a hectic life. A further major attraction is the Michlen starred Restaurant!

We had a really great time thanks to Paul and his team. We loved our room so much, our daughter wanted to move in!

The hotel was impeccably clean, gorgeous REN products and an exemplary housekeeping team.

We loved our gorgeous breakfast and choices offered.

The setting is stupendous and that view from our room...

Only suggestion would be to please replace the beds or mattresses as they are very soft and the bed in the second room wobbles like jelly. Also the duvets are far too warm.

Also perhaps an update on decor and furnishings to match the excellent hotel facilities, food and services.

We hope to be back.

Thank you, it was a pleasure having you to stay. We do have lightweight duvets on request but our duvets are the mid tog and the mattresses, similarly are a mid level of firmness. I hope we will see you again.

My husband and I celebrated our joint 60th birthdays at The Driftwood Hotel last weekend and it was a weekend to remember! From start to finish the staff at The Driftwood could not do enough for us. They made sure everything ran like clockwork and made us all feel very welcome. We all ate in the restaurant on the Saturday evening and everyone is still talking about it now! Yes it's expensive, but it does not disappoint!

Room Tip: Any with a sea view.

We loved the feel of the property - intimate, classy yet homely and relaxed. Staff were fabulously attentive and friendly. Views are stunning and the grounds well maintained. The restaurant was really superb and even though it has a Michelin star, it is not stuffy which makes the dining experience all the more enjoyable. We ate dinner here twice and on our last night we requested the lobster which was done to perfection. Breakfast is at an equally high standard; everything is really high quality, right down to the teas and jams. They also bring your newspaper of choice, a really nice touch. Special thanks to Matt and Sam for looking after us so well. This was our first visit to Cornwall and Driftwood Hotel has made the visit a truly delightful experience. We look forward to returning.

Room Tip: For courtyard-view rooms, #10 would be better than #9 which faces the hotel's front entrance
