“A fine hotel is a home from home, and Tresanton is a very fine hotel indeed. Its décor combines great style with great warmth – modern but not harsh, quality but not bling. The public rooms breathe a quiet hospitality, with a log fire in the sitting room, a dedicated childrens’ play room away from grown-ups, a screening room, a charming sun terrace and a private yacht and motorboats for beach picnics. The dining room is well into foodie territory – lots of seafood as you’d expect, but also interesting and creative meat and veggie choices, nudging Michelin levels of quality and presentation, and with happy Tresanton service to boot. The wine list is well-picked and well-priced – neither cheap nor greedy. The coolly sophisticated bedrooms (most with sea views) reflect Tresanton’s warmth. Excellent linens, large, quality, beds, and solid hospitable furnishings. Winding tropical garden steps lead to the new Lamorran suite, with two double bedrooms and a fitted bunk room for two very lucky children, two double ended baths, a generous living room and a balcony. Perfect for both a sexy getaway or a family holiday. Leaving will hurt.”

"While managing to be welcoming to all - from toddlers to grannies and the trendy to the tweedy - it was the first truly fashionable, truly chic contemporary British seaside hotel. "
