We reopen our doors this week and are ready to welcome guests again!
While we can all agree that this festive season will be like no other, what will be guaranteed is stunning scenery, a beautiful beach on the doorstep and miles of the South West coastal path to explore as well as a great range of activities and entertainment in the hotel.
Delicious local treats from the hotel’s kitchen, cocktails with a twist from the bar, along with three course lunches paired with wines and a mouth-watering festive afternoon tea are all on offer for guests staying at the hotel this December.
On arrival at the hotel, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy mulled wine and mince pies while they discover all that’s on offer during their break. There’ll be a Christmas Cinema club, mocktail masterclass for the kids and live music by local artists to entertain guests; and the beautifully decorated Vista will be a great place to relax with a glass of fizz and take in the incredible view.
Christmas Eve will be magical evening with local carol singers bringing in the festive cheer.
Christmas Day will begin with a Buck’s Fizz breakfast; lunch will be paired with wines and a buffet dinner will be served in the evening. For those who want to tear themselves away from the comfort of the hotel, the annual Boxing Day Swim at Poldhu Cove is not for the faint-hearted (no wetsuits!) but is definitely fun to join in or just watch. Last year the hotel had plenty of guests who continued the festive activities and enjoyed a brisk swim!
For those guests who prefer some ‘me time’ there will be a chance to enjoy a swim in the hotel’s indoor 30ft heated pool, visit the gym or visit the spa for some long overdue pampering, choosing from a selection of Elemis treatments including an age-defying facial to a deep tissue massage – all in the interests of aiding relaxation, rejuvenation and recharging the batteries.
Sight-seeing is always great fun and guests can visit St Michael’s Mount, home to giants (as legends report), Trebah Gardens and the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, located just up the road in Gweek.
While staying at the hotel, guests are perfectly positioned to explore the surrounding area. For example, you can wrap up warm and enjoy the sights of the South West coastal path directly from the hotel. A monument to Marconi, who sent the first transatlantic wireless signal from there in 1901 is nearby and there are some lovely, secluded coves (Church and Poldhu) as well as medieval landmarks.
Our team know the area well, so if there is a part of the coast you'd like to explore, ask at reception and we'll advise you on the best route to take. Plus, your four-legged best friend has access to all the beaches which were off limits in the summer. Cornwall is a paradise of calm, open spaces - a true retreat and what better time to take the kids away than for Christmas or new Year?
