Lovely relaxing stay at the Budock Vean. Staff are all helpful, chatty and friendly. Dinner and breakfast were included in our rate, great variety of locally sourced and decadent food. Very peaceful location and we really felt like we were away from it all, enjoying walks around the grounds and nearby area. We had one of the newly refurbished rooms...

Visited with my partner for a spa day he had bought as a birthday present for me. Very warm welcome and nice surroundings. There was maintenance going on at the spa all day, which we had been forewarned about but they had said it would only be happening in the morning. Visit was let down only towards the end when...

Budock Vean never disappoints if you want a peaceful retreat! As soon as you walk through the door the pace of life slows down. The staff are attentive and welcoming. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We always plan to explore the local area but never get further than walking down to the Ferry Boat Inn and Trebah Gardens because...

Having stayed at this hotel many years ago we thought we would give it another try as the reviews on Trip Advisor were so good. The thing that stands out at this hotel are the levels of excellent service and the friendliness of the staff. We found this to be better than anywhere else we have stayed in the world....

Stylish, great service, fabulous fresh local seafood and produce every day, providing a new menu each evening, and all very comfortable. Jackets for dinner, cocktails with appetizers served in the lounge or bar before dinner, with coffee and digestifs afterwards, is both elegant and delightful. It may be a little quaint and old fashioned in today's fast paced world, but...

Have stayed many times at the Budock Vean Hotel, love the ambience, perfect location, excellent staff and good food. However our superior room with an excellent view over the golf course was looking rather dated and the bathroom not up to the expected standard....

Such a lovely traditional hotel, with a log fire, great swimming pool with sauna and outside hot tub. The food is superb. Our bedroom was spotless, very comfortable beds, bath robes provided. The weather was very poor when we were there but there are some lovely walks down to the river and nearby gardens. It was just good to chill...

As previously stated, a hidden gem. The best hotel I've stayed in. The grounds are beautiful, the staff exceptionally professional, courteous and friendly.The hotel itself is a lovely building with a great ambience. I would imagine a lot of thought went into the decor as it is very appropriate for the building. Perfect for relaxing in, in the various lounges...

This is our 4th or 5th visit in 12yrs! And we love it! A great break away, lovely and helpful staff, great food and a fantastic setting. Great for a resting and relaxing break away. A truly indulgent and pampered get away.
