Amazing views and service hotel was lovely clean. The beach was below the hotel and access was from the back garden which was convenient and easy to get to. Loved our stay here looking forward to coming again
This was our second visit to The Carlyon Bay Hotel and again the service was excellent, beautiful room with sea view. Everything was perfect. Such a friendly luxury hotel. It is a real treat to be able to stay here and we will be back!
I stayed here after two weeks of meetings, and found it the perfect place to fully unwind. The food is great, especially at the Taste, the service impeccable, and I loved the spa. I walked along the coastal path which is right there. I had a single ocean facing, the room is small, but looks directly at the water, and I took my morning tea before breakfast enjoying the view. My time was during a heat wave, and I wish the bathroom could have cooled down more, but it was a nice one in spite of the heat. Lots of families were there at the same time and there was clearly lots for children to do. I used the spa, but not the pool, but it was put to lots of use, and yet did not seem crowded. If you want to be pampered this is a great place to go.
Lovely resort. Great walks to neighboring towns and beach. Great views. Make sure to bundle breakfast with your stay. Book spa appointments before arriving as staff is quite small. Great stay overall.
We spent a wonderful week at the Carlyon Bay at the end of July, and loved every minute of it. Yes, the first impression might not be great as the Art Deco facade looks a little dates but once inside,everything changes. The lobby and the bar area is airy and spacious and the views out onto the gardens and the sea are spectacular. It is worth booking the superior rooms facing the sea as opening the curtains in the morning with that view is pure joy. They may not be the largest of hotel rooms but at the end of the day, we hardly spent any time I doors thanks to the gorgeous weather. The food at the Bayview restaurant is is superb with a lot of choice using the finest local ingredients, and the staff go out of their way to ensure that all dietary requirements are catered for. The heated pool is simply marvelous, really delectable for a swim or just a dip on a sunny day. The golf course as well as the mini golf by the terrace are both great fun with the gold course really well maintained. The hotel is within walking distance (the coastal path) to both Carlyon Bay beach ( wide sandy beach with live bands most of the evenings) and Charlestown, the quaint little town where Poldark was filmed. The hotel also has a spa which we did not manage to explore - too many other things going on but it did look very professional. There is also a kid's club and we did see a magician put on a show for the kids in the hotel grounds. He had all the children mesmerised. We really loved our stay at Carlyon Bay. I think our son summed it up the best, when he said: "If this is what Cornwall is like, who needs Spain".…
We booked Carlyon Bay as a last minute trip and the hotel was superb, amazing location. Food in the Bayside restaurant was delicious which kept us dining at the hotel and our room (superior) ticked all the right boxes.
Great staff, wonderful location and a brilliant spa (two great heated pools), really comfortable beds cannot overcome missing basics, that are shamefully neglected in a hotel offering luxury style accommodation. Dreadful WiFi (I mean - really dreadful), noisy kitchen fans running till late can be heard at least on one side of the building, (sounds like being on a plane), no air-con other than in some of the premium rooms and no fridges in the rooms. Single rooms are claustrophobically small. These are mentioned, not to put you off, it is otherwise a great hotel (especially its staff, the best I've encountered in the UK), so, these missing facilities should not be a deal breaker. But it is worth noting their absence. It is an hotel offering accommodation at a premium price point, but missing basics such as these, in this day and age are a glaring omission. But, oh boy, the wonderful staff...…
We had a wonderful week long stay at this lovely hotel. Staff were always friendly, helpful and attentive. Restaurants had a varied choice of food on the menu’s, which was well cooked. The FunZone children’s club had excellent and attentive staff. The entertainment for both adults & children was varied and excellent.
Today we went for lunch/bar snack at the clubhouse. Setting is pleasant - clubhouse is comfortable. Has improved significantly under the stewardship of Peter who it was lovely to see again. Well done - keep standards high as I’m sure you will!
Phoned them 2 days prior to our intended visit to the Terrace Lounge, but was told that they did'nt take advanced bookings this time of year. If we still wanted to book then to ring on the day of our intended visit. Not only are we local but this was a recommendation from a friend. Doing as we were advised, we telephoned them just after 9:00 am. on the day only to be told they were fully booked!!! How can this be? You can't tell me that they took bookings for the whole lounge so early in the morning. No something is not right here. They must be taking bookings from other people who perhaps have more influence than mere locals. I would remind The Carlyon Bay that it is locals who keep them going in the winter. Really disappointed and now don't think I will bother ever to frequent their very expensive dining room either!!!…
