Perched on the Cornish cliffs and set in 12 acres of mature gardens this luxury, child friendly, family hotel offers spectacular views across Mounts Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Watch the unforgettable spectacle of the sun sinking slowly into the sea whilst the kids expend that final bit of energy before bed. The hotel assumes that you as parents don’t want to compromise on quality just because you are travelling with children so provide a stylish home from home with comfortable yet elegant interiors all with a sunny, welcoming feel and spectacular views.

For Kids

  • The Blue Room is designed with a futuristic look and is for the over eight’s where they can absorb themselves in the latest video games or team up for the more traditional pastimes such as pool and table football.
  • An Ofsted registered crèche (The Den) is complimentary for children aged between three months and eight years. You can leave your children or stay and play with them – whichever you feel most comfortable with. There are plenty of toys for both indoor and outdoor play. The Den is open every day of the week and the first session starts at 10am. Children get a two hour complimentary session every day of their stay. All you need to do is book in advance.
  • For parents with babies the Den has a designated baby area with toys, cot and pushchair.
  • Child-led activities include face painting, messy play, cooking and crafts. Activities are changed on a daily basis and if your child has something specific they want to do or create the staff will always try and cater for such requests.
  • Outside play area which includes a wooden climbing frame, swings and a slide.
  • The hotel has its very own cinema which shows classic family films on a daily basis.

There are 41 rooms and most of the rooms enjoy fantastic sea views while all have a sunny, welcoming feel and are furnished with fluffy towels, comfy beds with luxurious feather bedding. The décor is muted grey, creams and greens. 

There are three room categories:

Inland Facing rooms which are the smallest sized rooms with views over grounds or neighbouring properties only some of these can fit an extra beds or cots and would probably be a bit of a squeeze for any more than one baby in a cot or extra bed – particularly if you are staying more than one night. 

Sea Vieware the next category up with lovely sea views - again only some can fit extra beds or cots. 

Superior Sea View are the highest room category and are more spacious with fabulous ocean views. Most of these can fit extra beds or cots.

Interconnecting Rooms consist of two rooms connected by a private corridor or doorway so makes them ideal for families. Some can fit extra beds or cots to accommodate large families.
There are a limited number of Family Rooms offering two bedroomed accommodation. Some of these Family Rooms can take cots or one extra bed.
