"Everything! Staff were professional yet friendly. Food at breakfast and in the evening was of a high quality and delicious. Rooms were tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Enjoyed using the spa at their sister hotel."

Cornwall is popular throughout the year, due to its "mild climate, breathtaking scenery and long stretches of sandy beach" (Condé Nast Traveller), and its Atlantic coast is dotted with some of the UK's most beautiful coves and bays.

The Gannet Inn is in the village of Carbis Bay on the North Cornwall coast. The country-style property opened in 2015 and has "unique interiors with all the style and finesse of a boutique hotel", according to The AA.

The art galleries and winding cobbled streets of St Ives are five minutes' drive away, while the hotel's sister property, Carbis Bay Hotel, is 15 minutes' walk away -- guests at The Gannet Inn can head there to use the hotel's spa facilities, outdoor pool and Blue Flag beach.

The Gannet Inn has a restaurant that serves classic British dishes, burgers and pasta, and a bar with a dartboard and a pool table. There is also a lounge with a fireplace and leather armchairs. Breakfast is served daily from 7:30-10am.

"Stylish, high-standard" bedrooms are individually designed and soundproof, and feature neutral décor and bespoke furniture. Wi-Fi is free.

The staff, food and overall stay was excellent. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning. We didn't use the facilities at The Carbis Bay Hotel as the weather was perfect.

The food was outstanding. We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. The staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel was generally in good condition. The bar prices were reasonable.

We had a 'Quirky' room with en suite shower area. The en-suite was extremely small. A large person could have found it difficult to use. Having said that we are not large people and it was adequate for us.

We were offered a room upgrade which was located in the Atlantic View ,a hotel, almost next next door, which they had bought and renovated this year. Breakfast and evening meal was provided in the Gannet. Atlantic View rooms are large and tastefully decorated.
