Lovely cream tea served in a tranquil garden space. Good quality tea, lovely homemade scones and superb summer fruit jam. Lovely venue for an intimate wedding. Service great too. Restaurant menu looked appealing.

Thank you for your lovely review hopefully we will see you for dinner next time, you can still dine alfresco if our British Summer complies but try as we may we can't seem to arrange that one!

We have just come back from a lovely 3 day stay at the Salty Monk. We stayed in the Heather room which was lovely and spacious with a very comfortable bed. The breakfast was very nice with a good variety. It is in a good location for travelling around and seeing al the sights. We loved the llama walking, donkey...

A bit fussy and awkward service - well intentioned but, we felt slightly ackward eating in the bar. The food was good though but, expensive. Accomodation was okay but, over priced and the room smelled damp.

We are really concerned about your review please contact us so we can work out when you stayed and what you ate with us, as the Brasserie, which must have been the only other place you could have eaten as we do not have a Bar, is very informal and we service is very relaxed so we are at a...

We had a great one-night stay at the Salty Monk, and will certainly return. The standard of accommodation was excellent, and the food was outstanding; everything about this love place was top quality. A real find. Big thanks to Annette for the warm welcome.

It was my pleasure to meet you both, we hope that you will be able to come for longer next time, there is so much to do locally and always a different dish to choose from the menu each night!! Maybe treat yourselves to a massage or facial next time or even just our Hot Tub Experience package.

2nd time we have stayed here and it was just as good on both occasions. Room was very clean and comfortable and it was great to be able to go straight out into the garden. Fresh milk for the room was provided without asking - always a bonus instead of those silly little pots provided in most hotels. Relaxed atmosphere...

Excellent venue, excellent meal and excellent service. Highly recommended. Ideal for a special occasion; it was a friend's birthday. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel special without being over the top. Good choice of menu and super wine list.

Had a lovely meal here. Nice relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff. Nothing hurried but you were not left waiting too long between courses. If you can, leave some room for dessert. Not the chespest in town but certainly one of the best.

We stayed at the Salty Monk with a group of friends for a private (early) Christmas Party in November. We were greeted with a lovely warm welcome and shown to our room. We then sat in the lovely quaint lounge socialising. Our every wish was catered for. The rooms were beautiful and full of character and extremely clean, comfortable with...

We stopped off at this lovely quaint little hotel on our way back home from St Ives. Inside we were greeted by a friendly landlady and shown to a table, after we'd asked about having (our last one of the trip) a cream tea. Decor inside what I assume to be grade II listed building is fantastic, with its oak...
