12 girls booked a Polzeath lodge which sleeps 12 and caters for 12 very comfortably. The title of 'resort' is very broadly speaking and first impressions of the reception, lounge area was disappointing. I was informed that the swimming pool and sauna was closed for maintenance and would remain so for the weekend - I explained that I was disappointed... More

I recently visited this resort with my husband. We had booked a night away as a birthday treat for me. This was my first night away from my son so was a pretty big deal for me. We received an email the night before to say the pool was shut. We booked this resort specially so I could use the... More

Very clean and well maintained accommodation. We stayed in an apartment with underfloor heating which had a beautifully soft cosy bed (just a bit on the small side!) with our dog who enjoyed the nose to nose encounters with the resident goose in the lake outside. Disappointed to find the pool, sauna and steam room were out of action on... More

Stayed in one of the apartments. Very odd layout with the kitchen and bathroom creating a corridor between the bedroom and living room. Entrance is straight into the bedroom. This is not 5 star accommodation more like 3 star. No dishwasher, no washing machine very basic furniture towels and bed linen were not changed throughout our 4 night stay. Sound... More

As a repeat customer of this venue, I think my relationship with Retallack has finally come to and end. I'm somewhat fed up of the customer service here, and lack of reward for repeat business/large bookings. Having recently organised a large group with multiple lodge bookings (around £4000 worth over 3 days when you include restaurant and bar bills, including... More

I have just returned from a lovely stay at Retallack. I was a little worried when reading some of the views beforehand as I had organised it for my family and friends as a mini break but it didn't disappoint. Beautiful spacious lodge- warm, cosy, lots of amenities and in a lovely setting. We stayed in a 4 bed Eden... More

I would happily live in the lodge I was in!! Stayed for just over a week. Soooo clean, homely feel. Very modern inside, had such a lovely time didnt want to come home. The hot tub temp and cleanliness was checked regularly by staff. Will definatly make this our place to go every year.

We've just finished a week in a 2 bedroom Eden (I think) lodge. We arrived at the end of half term, and the resort has changed massively since then.
