Overview

Retallack Resort & Spa is a self-catering resort near the north coast of Cornwall, within 20 minutes' drive of Newquay and Padstow.

Previous guests at the resort include the cast of "Poldark", who stayed there while filming the BBC's Cornwall-set period drama. Nearby filming sites include Porthcothan beach, Bodmin Moor and Charlestown -- all less than 30 minutes' drive away.

The Fistral self-catering properties include a double bedroom with lake views, a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom with bath and separate shower, internet access, Sky TV with Kids, Sports and Movies channels, a DVD player and an iPod docking station.

Retallack Resort & Spa offers free use of its facilities, such as an indoor swimming pool, a steam room, a sauna, a spinning studio and tennis courts. It also has Cornwall's only FlowRider -- a surf wave pool (extra charges apply at the hotel). 

The aqua park has been supersized for 2017 -- it features an inflatable playground of slides, a trampoline, a climbing wall and a balance beam (extra charges apply at the hotel).

The new Esya Spa launches in April and offers a variety of treatments (must be pre-booked, supplements apply).

The on-site Green Room restaurant (open daily for lunch from 12-2:30pm and Wednesday-Saturday for dinner from 5-8:30pm) uses locally sourced produce, and The Driftwood Lounge serves freshly baked pizzas and has a children's area with an Xbox, a pool table and board games.

It was a good base for a couple of days in Cornwall.

I'm presuming it is a self-appointed 5*. This is counter-productive as it sets expectations that it doesn't meet. It would be better t0 describe itself as 4*. The mattress was long overdue for replacement.
