St Austell, Cornwall, PL25 3RL
Had 4 lovely nights with you. First time down in Cornwall, really enjoyed it.
Everything about Boscundle Manor is fabulous. The venue, location, staff, food, spa, pool, hot tub and tasteful decor throughout. We enjoyed our stay immensely and will definitely visit again and we highly recommend this very special place.
The room was dark and the bathroom was not en-suite, but the bed was the biggest problem, it was so uncomfortable. You could feel all the springs in the mattress, when we told the receptionist the following morning that we had not slept at all she said that there should be a mattress topper and although there was one added for the second night, it was still by far the most uncomfortable bed we have ever slept in. It really spoiled our break.
We had the most pleasant surprise when we arrived at Boscundle Manor. The first impression was lovely, only to be confirmed once we had registered and been taken to our room. The staff were welcoming and very helpful and efficient. We would thoroughly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a relaxing, peaceful break. Thank you to all the staff
I have a walking and balance disability so found the almost complete lack of handrails most upsetting - starting at the "disabled" parking place (very unwelcoming and somewhat daunting). Check-in confusion as told we could not have our chosen, booked, room (with the only walk-in shower). Owner did attend and re-arranged the bookings, but not before there were several more people wanting to check-in. No knowledge of our dinner booking. Bar had no Sherry of any sort and no Dubonnet (excuse was a previous 70th Birthday had drained them). Confusion over amount of 'allowance' for dinner - told £29 pp, whereas our arranged figure was £39 pp. After a brief exchange, £39 was conceded. My wifes' duck was dry and uninteresting, there was a small portion of potato and a few stick beans, my risotto was similarly uninteresting and there was no coffee offered. The walk-in shower IS NOT ! - there is a threshold and step up of several inches. Oh no, no , no, thank you ! The (iced-up) refrigerator contained a miniscule bottle of milk and the television was unwatchable on any independant station. At breakfast in the Conservatory, butter curls already on the table and in danger of melting away. The sun raises the temperature in this room and I would sooner not see the milk already waiting as well. At check-out, told " We're a Listed Building, so don't cater for disabled people as there would be much dificulty in complying. (But there is a disabled parking space
We often drive through North Cornwall en route to Lands end and decided to stay over this time - we will definately stay here again as it was near to some excellent sandy beaches and nice walks. A fairly small hotel but the public rooms and the restuarant were lovely, as was the food
