Fodor's Review

It's the Cornish Riviera, Italian style: this former yachtsman's club, owned by hotelier Olga Polizzi, makes for a luxuriously relaxed stay. Decorated in sunny whites, blues, and yellows, with terra-cotta pots on the terrace, the Tresanton seems distinctly Mediterranean, and the yacht available in summer to guests reinforces the jet-set spirit. In the restaurant, the Italian-inspired menu includes local scallops, crab, risotto, and Cornish lamb.
