We booked a Residence Lodge and were really pleased that it fitted the bill as 5 Star.
The Lodge was clean and well presented with everything you needed for a wonderful holiday.
Super quality linen and towels really did provide that wow factor.
The hot-tub on the decking which was kept at a great temperature was an added bonus.
With a very nice well equipped kitchen we mixed eating out and eating in.
The gym, although a bit small had all the machines we wanted and was never crowded. The indoor pool complex was very nice indeed, extremely clean and functional. (The communal changing facilities were a tad different and with showers right opposite the sauna and steam-room, were not exactly very private)
We had one problem with the wi-fi on the last evening when it dropped out completely. I rang reception and having just put the phone down, a maintenance man was practically straight over and resolved the issue in minutes.
My only gripe was not being able to book Sunday Lunch at the on-site restaurant as it was booked up. Perhaps a consideration might be given to extend the hours for Sunday Lunch servings.
Overall an excellent stay and all staff encountered were extremely friendly and helpful.
We will consider coming back again if holidaying in the area.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Pulling back the curtains to sea views. Slipping into the warm bubbles of your private hot tub. Breathing in the fresh salty sea air. We know it’s the small details that add up to the perfect holiday, that’s why the aim of our day, is to make yours. From discovering a complimentary chilled bottle of wine in your lodge fridge when you arrive to plump pillows piled high on sumptuous beds, we will have you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated from the moment we say hello. Sea views are literally the name of our game – Gwel an Mor is Cornish for ‘view of the sea’. From high above the beautiful beach and fishing village of Portreath, every five-star luxury lodge looks out across the dramatic Atlantic. From stormy winter days to calm summer evenings with soft breezes playing in the trees, the view is always changing but constantly captivating. Whether you are looking for accessible space, a cosy retreat for two or an action-packed break for all the family (even the dog!) we’ll make your escape ... more less
