Blending the elegance of an Edwardian villa with clean-lined modern style, this friendly hotel has the best of both worlds. Guest rooms are bright and contemporary, and the spacious common areas include a large lounge that opens onto a veranda. There's an extra charge for sea-facing rooms with balconies, and a minimum stay of three days is usually required between June and September. Freshly prepared "platters" of cold meats, seafood, and Cornish cheeses are available
all day from the bar.
