Last weekend was about our 9th visit to Budock Vean , we first went there about 25 years ago and more recently have been annually for the last 3 years. We have seen many improvements over the years and the Barlow family are steadily and sympathetically updating the hotel maintaining that all important ambiance that regular guests return for year...

Charming Hotel in a beautiful location on the River Helford. Lots to do in the hotel itself with golf, swimming and lots of local walks from the door. We had a quiet room with good facilities. All the staff were lovely.

Not the best standard of service, not very clean room (cobwebs everywhere, skirting, dado and some walls behind bedside tables and drawers encrusted in months of dust).Kept awake first night by droning of pump in cellar, this should have been turned of by night porter at 10.30pm. NOT THE SORT OF EXPERIENCE WE EXPECTED.

Three enjoyable & relaxing days. We regard the staff as old friends now. They were, as ever, welcoming and thoroughly efficient. We greatly appreciated being allocated one of the Signature bedrooms, and hope to pay a return visit to the Hotel shortly.

We went with family for the gourmet weekend, and to celebrate a special birthday. We could not fault the food which was excellent and the staff were very friendly. The room however was well below the standard of a four star hotel. We upgraded to a superior room, although reasonably clean the bathroom was in need of replacement, the bath...

Thank you for your feedback and I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed with your room. I can assure you that our shower curtains are washed after each guests has departed so should never be dirty and we would not provide stained flannels. I wish we had been given the opportunity to address these issues during your stay and to...

Four nights of total pampering and relaxation! One day of spa treatments (4), all wonderfully delivered by Kim and Emma, started the holiday off beautifully. Despite the worst type of Cornish weather (most, rain, winds, cold) we had a further three days of rest fuelled by delicious breakfasts and 4-course dinners, all included in the price, plus a cream tea...

What a wonderful weekend, the Hotel was spotless, as for our room it was just great, and once again very clean.

With all the great reviews, I had high expectations for the surprise birthday trip booked for my husband and I. The hotel is in a beautiful location in lovely grounds which lead down to the Helford river. However some serious TLC is needed to bring the hotel up to scratch. The scruffy signage and battered front door on arrival were...

Thanks for your feedback Margo, and sorry to hear we did not meet your expectations. You may have picked up from previous reviews that the hotel is undergoing a period of refurbishment which we are halfway through. The bar and lounges have all been updated to reflect a contemporary country house feel, along with a third of the bedrooms. Yes,...
