Hotel in St. Mawes...

In this ‘example’ Classic Escape, you could stay at Hotel Tresanton in St. Mawes on the beautiful Roseland peninsula.

Much has been written over the years about this iconic coastal hotel….the reality is, however hard you look, you are unlikely to ever find a more elegant hotel establishment.

Tresanton is the master of understated chic. Elegant, subtle and engaging, a stay here has a certain assured style, which comes without the sacrifice of either welcome or cosyness. Originally a group of rambling hillside cottages, Olga Polizzi created a true landmark hotel that, for many, became the benchmark to aspire to.

Today Tresanton has 31 rooms, some with their own terrace; all with magnificent sea views. Each room is individually furnished with antiques and Cornish art to create a little cocoon of specialness. With a choice of bedrooms, spacious suites, and cottages – available either as individual rooms or as a whole - the quaint, hickle-dee-pickle-dee character of this collection of fisherman’s cottages remains. Food is as you would expect; a delight. Chef oversees a daily changing menu using locally caught fish and crustaceans, in combination with organic vegetables and excellent meat from a nearby Cornish butcher. There is just a hint of Italian, to an otherwise eclectic selection of dishes, in deference no doubt to the hotel’s owner.

The hotel has a cinema, a bar, a sitting room and restaurant with terrace overlooking St. Mawes Bay. Not to mention a magnificent skippered yacht for those lured on to the water by the view…
