The Cornwall Hotel, Spa & Estate
Ranked #5 of 9 Hotels in St Austell
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 November 2017

Our stay at The Cornwall Hotel got off to a bad start as on arrival we were told the spa was closed. This was disappointing. However the enthusiasm and professionalism of the staff over the course of our stay, the quality of the food and the pleasant rooms and surroundings nearly made up for this.
The staff were warm and helpful throughout, the breakfasts and dinner delightful and our room spacious, comfortable and attractive.
Had the spa been open I've no doubt this would have been five stars.

Stayed here for two nights on a deal. We ate in the bar the first night and thoroughly enjoyed the food and thought that if the bar food was that goo then the restaurant food would be great. We were not disappointed in the slightest on the second night the food was exceptional. The breakfast in the mornings was really good as-well with a good range of hot breakfast. We didn’t use any of the spa facilities while we were there. The pool was closed for maintenance when we stayed but the hotel had made other arrangements for guests to use the pool at a holiday park about 5 minutes up the road which was really good of the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our little stay away. All the staff that we spoke to were really friendly and so helpful especially when it came to seating in the restaurant with the pram. One staff member in particular called Sabina was really friendly and helpful.

despite the awful weather still had a very enjoyable stay. Mike in the restaurant was very attentive and made our stay very special. The spa is lovely and they had one of the hottest steam rooms I have ever been in . The pool was lovely. The restaurant was great with what I can say is the best fish and chips I have EVER eaten. The fish had a tempura style batter that stayed crispy the whole meal through. The beer was only average. Breakfast were very tasty. The room was clean and comfortable. The elevator was very slow. Check out was a bit of a nuisance as someone was cleaning an aston martin and a bentley, and had the drive cordoned off so I had to trundle the bags a fair way down the drive until I could get to my car

Room Tip: Try to stay in the main hotel, as it has more character

Recently had afternoon tea here for my wife's birthday. Very nicely done: a variety of sandwiches, scone with jam and cream, a selection of small cakes, plenty of tea, and Prosecco to start. The room is quiet and tastefully furnished, and service is attentive without being obtrusive. Well worth it.

Left after one night, as the swimming pool closed, no information on website. My fiancée was very disappointed as I was working in the area,so was unable to use the facilities while I was at work. Food in restaurant was good, one of the best burgers I have ever had. Our room was clean and very spacious. It was disappointed that we had to leave due to miss advertising.

Dear iandebdavies,
Thank you for your review. I’m pleased to hear you enjoyed your meal, ‘one of the best burgers’ you’ve ever had is praise indeed! However, we are so sorry to have let you down in other aspects. We did talk together about arranging a taxi to the local pool, all expenses paid, and also a complimentary dinner, but I completely understand that this wasn’t what you were looking for on this occasion.
Please feel assured that you will be able to see the changes to the spa next time you stay and, should you decide to bring your fiancée again, please do let me know – we would genuinely like to do something special to make up for the disappointment caused by the temporary pool closure.
Warm wishes,
Ari Nauni
Operations Manager
