"We stayed here on the 17th & 18th January 2020 as we were visiting the Eden Project. We booked a Superior Family Room through Booking.com. The 2 nights, B&B for 2 adults and a 12 year old came in at £158 Bed & Breakfast rate. The hotel is easy to find with access just off the A30. The hotel is part of a sprawling golf complex with some rooms in part of the main clubhouse building, and others in nice, stone built, “lodges” dotted along the entrance driveway. Check in was easy and the receptionist was very pleasant, friendly and welcoming. We were given Room 16 in “Willow” lodge. This was a short walk back through the car park and a little way back down the driveway. The room is nicely decorated and well appointed with a massive double bed (very very comfy), a small anteroom with bunk beds and a nice bathroom with a modern suite, a corner bath, and a walk in shower with one of those funky “rain” heads. The linen and towels were clean, fluffy and fresh. The windows overlooked a nice green area and a hedgerow where rabbits played in the mornings. Even though it dropped very cold in the evenings, the room was toasty and the heat was easily controlled using the thermostats on the radiators. There was also plenty of hot water. The room (and the whole complex in general) was very clean and looked to be well maintained. The maid service did a nice job of making up the room for our second night, as well. Breakfast is served in the restaurant inside the main clubhouse building. Nice open views though the massive windows. Bright and airy, and the staff were lovely. Good, plentiful selection of hot and cold buffet food. The sausages were delicious. All in all a fabulous place to stay. We were very pleased to have found this place. The only thing that was out of place was that the shower gel dispenser was empty in our room. I’m sure they would have refilled it if we had asked though. The bathroom fan was also a little noisy but we just used the light over the mirror (the fan comes on with the main light and stays on, on a timer, for a little while after you turn the light off) It’s worth noting that the entrance is on a dark road, but is well signposted. The way to reception, from the carpark isn’t signposted, and if you get a room in one of the lodges at the end of the driveway it would be a bit of a trek for breakfast. Also, the double bed in our room was 2 large “singles” clipped together, so you get what can feel like a big gap between the two sides. Didn’t bother us though. "
"Whilst I have been to this destination numerous times before I thought I should review my most recent trip. I organised a trip for eight of us to play golf and enjoy a short holiday. Covid rules were in place so on arrival there was a sanitizer station at the entrance and signs instructing the wearing of a mask in reception. The entrance to the bar area had a wait to be seated sign and the track and trace cards which had to be filled in prior to going in. Once seated table service was the only way to be served. We had previously organised ourselves into bubbles of four. Every day we were asked to fill in a Menu choice for the evening meal. I have to say that the staff were excellent during the whole of our trip and the food was top class. The accommodation has been recently upgraded and was superb. The golf course was in magnificent order with difficult rough for the out of position shots and the greens were difficult to read and quite quick. All in all a fair test of ability. CONGRATULATIONS to Trethorne for a top class effort. I highly recommend this destination. 5 Stars"
"After a 5 1/2 hour drive in bush traffic, We loved the friendly welcome from Sarah, who also brought us our food later ( the biggest cod and chips we’ve ever seen in our lives & husband was given a huge cooked breakfast!) Cat and Georgie were also helpful at breakfast & Lynda & the Hotel Reception team answered all my queries very efficiently, before we arrived. The room was spotlessly clean, lovely comfortable bed, huge TV, big soft towels & everything worked.Had such a good sleep. What a wonderful place and the staff are very special - amazing service. We only had a one night stay and wished it had been longer! Great value and probably best UK hotel we’ve stayed in. Would we come back? In a heartbeat."
