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" (The AA) bedrooms are individually designed and soundproof, and feature neutral décor and bespoke furniture. Wi-Fi is free.

Our stay at the Gannet Inn was simply wonderful. We received a warm welcome which was informative about our stay. There are places to sit and relax and the welcome cocktail went down well. Our room was well appointed and comfortable. The food itself was lovely. The menu for both dinner and breakfast was well thought out. All ingredients were fresh and extremely tasty. The wine list was excellent. Overall the staff were very helpful and attentive. Would definitely recommend and return.

Mother and daughter break. I have previously enjoyed Travelzoo deal breaks at the Carbis Bay Hotel, which I understand operates in conjunction with the Gannet Inn. This deal seemed like a good opportunity to revisit this lovely part of the country. Our stay at the Gannet Inn was excellent in every way.

Great stay in sister hotel the Atlantic next door to the Gannet, apart from fire alarm in the middle of the night. Noticed that there were no fire notices in the bedroom which was a surprise.

I would recommend The Gannet Inn it’s close to St Ives which was a short drive away.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Gannet Inn. Our room was full of character and meticulously clean. Supper was delicious, breakfast was superb and all waiting staff were helpful without being over zealous. All staff were charming, although the prize must go to Phil at the Carbis Bay sister hotel, who took great care showing us around and who made us feel especially welcome. What a super treat. We will definitely return and recommend to our friends without hesitation.

The shortbread biscuits in our room were a delightful little touch, perhaps two little packets would have made it even better !

We were greeted in the most friendly manner and shown around the hotel immediately after registering, all the staff we encountered during our tour were equally friendly. This continued throughout our stay. The food we were served was superb, service was fast and efficient.

Lady phoned to offer us a sea view room next door. Lovely bright newly furnished room. Great lounge to chill by the fire, have a drink and read the papers provided. Breakfast was the best ever eaten and I have lived in hotels for 25 years. Chef was complimented as had the lean breakfast. Dinner was lush so overall would love to return ...if only for breakfast...........
