Hotel review: Tresanton, in Cornwall, England – room check

Tim Warrington stays at Hotel Tresanton in St Mawes, one of the prettiest fishing villages in Cornwall

Check-in experience:

Absolutely flawless. After an hour of driving through horizontal rain to St Mawes during a thunderstorm, dodging Cornish hedgerows and sundry bewildered badgers, it was much appreciated.

Professional, slick and quick, the staff were uber efficient. The carpark is at the top of the cliff and I was at the bottom but my luggage magically appeared in my room before me. Just in time for cocktail hour and the most divine Aperol Spritz. And the superlatives kept coming. Ten out of 10.

Room: Ground-floor room with separate entrance, writing desk, flatscreen and huge walk-in robe. Tresanton is essentially a cluster of houses on the edge of town. The hotel, perched on the cliffside, soars skywards, straddling the Cornish granite and presenting each room with panoramic views of the Percuil Rivermouth and St Anthony’s lighthouse.

And the elevated harmonies continue inside with sumptuous, individual decor in every room. Tresanton has 30 rooms and suites; a restaurant with large terraces; a room for private parties; the dog’s bar, where you can dine with your pooch; a beach club; a private sailing boat; and a kitchen sink. Several of them judging by the lightning fast service at dinner.


Huge bath and across the wet-room a vast and glorious rainwater shower. I dried off with the softest towels.
