We had a great weekend at the hotel. The reception staff were lovely as were those we met in the restaurants and housekeeping. There were a few issues with food as we seemed to get our meals very slowly compared to others in the dining rooms. They were always very apologetic. The pool and jacuzzi are super warm and very...

Well where do I start, staff are very professional and on the button. What a view over their own bay with one on the best beaches in the south west I think.The hotel has so much choice of dining options from a little more formal to really great casual dining in the beach club. The spa has just won best...

We stayed for three nights in a Supreme room. Slightly disappointed that it overlooked the rear of the bar with somewhat noisy ventilation and was overlooked by anyone using the jacuzzi, so would definitely go for a sea view next time. The staff were all very helpful and ensured we had everything we needed. The food and afternoon tea was...

This is an expensive hotel but lovely for a special treat. The room had a balcony overlooking the beach and you could hear the sea at night time which was lovely. The room was tiny and meant that only one person could move at a time! The bathroom was also tiny but well appointed. We enjoyed the beach bar which...

We booked a 2 night break with Secret Escapes. The hotel was easy to find, check in was quick and easy - even though there was a wedding reception taking place as we arrived - and we were given a tour of the hotel and spa by the receptionist. Our room at the back of the hotel was clean and...

Had an enjoyable three night break at Carbis Bay Hotel, booked through Secret Escapes. Room 111, a superior side sea view, was clean and comfortable, although it did get a bit warm at night, and there was no way of opening the window. A couple more small issues with the room, which we filled in on the questionnaire when leaving....

We stayed at this lovely hotel during half-term, I'm surprised at some of the poor reviews, we had no complaints and found the staff very friendly and helpful. The location is exceptional, we didn't use the spa but understand from other residents that it is top class. We will definitely return.
