An excellent stay at the Budock Vean, with very friendly staff and good food. We will come back and would recommend to others. The hotel is set in quiet country grounds and offers a very fair rate when compared to other less attractive hotels in the area.

We enjoyed a great weekend with friends. The food and wine at dinner very good, breakfast excellent, apart from the 'coffee'! Generally the hotel looks nice and the staff helpfull , friendly and obliging. The only reason to not give 5 stars is that some of the rooms are tired and need updating. We would come again but it will...

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed your stay. As you probably know, we're half way through our refurbishment programme with a third of the bedrooms completely updated, with more to follow in 2017.

This was the 9th annual gathering of our family and friends at Budock Vean. The welcome upon arrival makes one feel like an “old” friend. There is always a warm smile and friendly hello, with a booking in process that is so well organised that it almost goes unnoticed. Many of the rooms have recently been upgraded and redecorated and...

This is about the twentieth time we have stayed at Budock Vean--the first in the late 1990's.It continues to impress--the attention to detail,the professionalism and attitude of the Staff are qualities all too lacking in many establishments.The food is of impeccable quality-much of it locally sourced-beautifully cooked and immaculately presented. The hotel has a touch of style in the way...

This hotel was better than we could have expected. We were upgraded to a refurbished 'Signature' room which was beautifully furnished and decorated. We made good use of the leisure facilities particularly the pool and hot-tub. The canapes before dinner were a nice touch and the dinner itself in very pleasant surroundings and accompanied by the pianist in the background....
