We first visited this hotel 11 years ago and found we had been assigned the same room. It was all much the same --- spacious room with sitting area, comfortable superking bed, plenty of cupboard space and a lovely sea view from the dual aspect windows. The bathroom was adequate with a shower over the bath and plenty of toilettries but could do with a lick of paint.My one criticism of the room was the various rugs scattered around which could be a trip hazzard for the more elderly of us!
The dining experience was rather different from our first visit. We have dined in Michelin restaurants in the past and the food at the Driftwood certainly lived up to expectations. However, is it necessary to describe in minute detail every ingredient in every course? Also, when dinner is £65 per head can it be justified to have a £5 supplement on several dishes. We were there for 3 nights and the menu was exactly the same each night. Breakfasts were very good, an excellent selection of cereals, fruits, yogurt and pastries with an interesting assortment of cooked dishes.
The staff were all very friendly and welcoming but it would have been nice to have seen the owners at some time during the evenings.

- Imagine your perfect holiday - a stylish, privately run Cornish Beach House Hotel, overlooking the stunning Gerrans Bay, near the pretty village of Portscatho, near St Mawes South Cornwall. Driftwood is like no other boutique hotel in Cornwall. Driftwood has the friendly informal service, a michelin star restaurant, and the efficiency you would expect. Where else can you walk down a wooded path, to your own beach and cove? Where else can you lie back on a steamer chair, with a glass of wine, and enjoy an unbroken sea view. Where else can you eat the best, locally sourced food, perhaps lobster caught that morning, or crab from the bay? Whoever you are or whatever your looking for, whether that be a family holiday, a boutique or romantic hotel in Cornwall, Driftwood is perfect for all your needs. At Driftwood, families can be as well looked after as romantic couples or small groups of grown-ups. ... more less
