10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Arrived as guests; left as friends
"We recently returned from a two week stay at the Tremarne Hotel and could not be more pleased with our stay. Unknown to us before we booked, the Tremarne more than lived up to the web site promise and the owners Paul and Fitz and the team made sure that every guest had personal attention and addressed their needs. We stayed in Room 4 - a well decorated and attractive four-poster room with views over the countryside. The room was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. There was a decent sized bath with shower over and the towels were changed daily. The bed was very comfortable and although we were facing the front of the hotel, we can honestly say we were never disturbed by other guests and had a truly restful and relaxing stay.
There is a well tended garden with its own pool at the rear with views to the sea, which we made use of daily during our stay. We were lucky enough to get this to ourselves most days and the pool is a welcome feature to help you cool down after a busy day's sight seeing or visit to the many gardens and attractions Cornwall has to offer. Breakfast was served hot and with a smile and the food was good and plentiful. The evening meal is excellent value for money and during the two weeks' stay we ate in the hotel 8 or 9 times - the chefs producing really good quality attractive dishes to order. Evening meals are to be ordered after breakfast which means the freshest fish meat and vegetables are used. We loved the food!
There is a lounge and small bar for guests to use and we enjoyed sharing stories and banter with the fellow guests and the overall impression we take away from our time at the Tremarne is what a happy, relaxing and quality place to stay in a beautiful location in Cornwall."

"Our stay at the Tremarne was excellent. The hosts, Michael and Fitz were very pleasant and chatty, as were their staff Norman and Ruth, yet they remained professional at all times. We chose to dine each evening aswell, and were very impressed with the food. Ian, the chef, conjoured up some of the best food we have ever had - the pork in cider, mustard and apple sauce was simply delicious!
Our rooms were large and airy, very comfortable and clean, and the en-suites had complimentary toiletries, which saved on the packing!
Our one slight concern were the stairs to the first floor- difficult for anyone with a mobility problem. However we discussed the situation with Michael who said he would look into installing a stairlift.
I would recommend the hotel to anyone who is looking for a base to visit the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
We shall certainly be returning in the future, and we wish Michael, Fitz and the team all the very best for their first season, and hope they enjoy a long and happy ownership of the Tremarne Hotel."

"I am confused by recent comments because the owner/ host is called Michael when my wife and I stayed 29 and 30th of May 2007!
They are upgrading over the closed season focusing on the bathrooms and not before time! The radiator needing venting, the shelf was loose on its fixings and the shower attachment was just above the level of the bath taps. I had to shower one-handed as ther was nowhere to locate it higher up. There is also a warning about the change of temperature due to the pressure fluctuations!!
The bed was the softest (not as a good thing) and when either of us rolled over the other was nearly bounced out the bed. At Â£100 a night for two B & B with the sea view we felt it was overpriced but the host and Norman the barman were helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was pretty good although we didn't try the evening meal (Â£20 a head 3 course) which is pretty good value given the price of meals in Mevagissey restaurants."

You'll love this hotel.
"We arrived to a very warm welcome from our hosts,Paul and Fitz. Our room was spotless,as was the rest of the hotel,with lovely views of the countryside and sea.
Both breakfast and evening meals were made, where possible, from fresh , local produce .They were delicious with a good, varied choice on the menu.
The atmosphere in the hotel was very relaxing and, thanks to the comfortable beds, we slept very well. We were made to feel soecial by the friendly, proffesional staff, for whom nothing was too much trouble.
This hotel is a perfect base from which to explore Cornwall and, before we left, we had already booked a return visit."

"A very well appointed hotel. On arrival we were made extremely welcome, with offers of tea and coffee and biscuits.
Rooms were light and airy and well appointed, with lovely views over the sea and countryside.
Food was to a very high standard with lots of choice. Breakfast had choices of juice, cereals, fruit and/or a full English breakfast, which set us up for the rest of the day. Evening meals were available - a choice of 3/4 courses with a choice of main meals and desserts with always a vegetarian option.
Both the owners (Paul and Fitz) and their staff were very attentive, with nothing being too much trouble.
A very enjoyable stay. Thank You."

"we arrived at the hotel after a very dreary journey to be greated by a very warm welcome; the room was clean and bright and the bed very comfortable; the view from the window was really lovely and we kept the curtains open while drinking a pre dinner glass of wine enjoying the peace. we ate in the hotel the first evening but had pre booked two excellent local restaurants for the other two evenings of our stay which were outstanding; the breakfast was individually cooked and sourced local ingredients.
The staff were extremelf friendly and helpful and we will definitely stay here again when staying in this part of cornwall"

Friendly, clean and comfortable hotel
"We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and had a very plesant time. The hotel had just re-opened after the winter, so our room was a little cold on the first night, but much better by the second. The owners made us very welcome, and were extremely friendly and helpful - putting a heater in the room to take away the chill.
Our room was large, with a terrace which had fantastic views over the town below and out to the sea. It are lots of quite steep stairs - the hotel is on,and built into the hill which gives mavagissey some of its charm.
The restaurant was not serving evening meals during our stay (although the breakfast was good) but the owners recommended some good restaurants in the town."

Little Gem in wonderful Mevagissey
"From the moment we arrived we were greeted by Judy who greeted us with a well needed pot of freshly brewed tea which was just what we needed after our long journey. We sat outside on the terrace overlooking the valley well away from the maddening crowd and soon felt ourselves begin to unwind. We were then shown to our room which had beautiful sea views over to Chapel Point. We had a delicious dinner in the hotel restaurant with everything being freshly pepared on the day and beautiful fresh vegetables (not frozen). The next day when we woke after a super nights sleep in a enormous 6ft bed we went down to a wonderful traditional English Breakfast which was lovely and hot and kept us going all day. Judy & Graham are wonderful hosts and I would recommend this hotel to anyone."

What more could you ask for?
"The owners and staff at this hotel are really friendly and helpful. The twin room we had, although up two flights of stairs, was beautifully furnished with a good-sized bathroom. There were several little extras in the room such as cushions on the beds and a well stocked hospitality tray which included hot chocolate and fruit teas alongside the usual tea and coffee.
The full English breakfast was superb and made lunch unnecessary! The evening meals were also of a high standard."

Friendly and comfirtable
"Stayed 2 nights in a twin room - comfortable beds but the room was very small. Owners of Hotel are friendly and helpful. Walking distance to Mevagissey Village - very steep, narrow roads. Not suitable to walk to restaurants at night so you have to book evening meal at the Hotel that morning or go without (no room service)."
