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.

We stayed in the sister hotel next door, honeysuckle room so spacious, beautifully decorated throughout, view of the sea from the side of the room. Top floor no lift but very comfortable and quiet.

Room 12 shower door seal requires replacing . Whilst Staff were all most helpful Dinner felt somewhat rushed. The lighting is too dim -- ambiance is one thing but not when this extreme.

Ideally a sea facing bedroom is preferable. The standard of decor is excellent and we were very comfortable.
