CHARACTER & STYLE
Originally established as a seamen's mission in 1889, this charming boutique townhouse has undergone a delicate redesign. Juxtaposing with the traditional architectural elements, the interiors feature natural materials like oak wood, complemented by a soothing tonal scheme of pale blue and grey hues and coastal scenery beyond.
Sip a cocktail on the terrace leading to the water's edge, with gorgeous views towards the wooded banks of Pont Pill Creek and out to sea or hang out on one of the relaxing fireside sofas. The friendly and enthusiastic teamwork ensures your stay is enjoyable within the hotel's restaurant, terrace, and lobby-bar area.

Food & Drink
Head chef Richard Massey's seasonal menu uses native ingredients such as West Country beef, Cornish cheeses, Fowey River mussels and local scallops and there's a well-crafted cocktail menu to kick off or round up your evening. The attention-to-detail in contemporary surrounds won us over; think low lighting and distressed wood, fused with polished floors, all to a backdrop of estuary views.
The restaurant: relaxed dining, West Country produce, fresh seafood, seasonal, contemporary dishes, cocktails. Open every day for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Lunch mains from £16, two-course dinner £37.50, five courses £45.
