Review on Hotel Tresanton

Tresanton is one of Cornwall's most famous hotels, situated at the edge of the unspoiled village of St. Mawes. All of the rooms have stunning views across the sea and look towards St. Anthony's lighthouse. It was bought by Olga Polizzi in 1997 who set about completely redesigning and restoring it. Now Tresanton has a casual and elegant atmosphere very much in keeping with its seaside location.

The dining room has a calm and cool Mediterranean atmosphere with a terrace on two sides, where lunch, drinks and candlelit dinners are served whenever the temperate climate allows.

The head chef, Paul Wadham, oversees a daily changing menu using fish, crustaceans, and organic vegetables, as well as excellent meat from a Cornish butcher. In deference to the hotel's owner, he introduces a hint of Italian to an otherwise eclectic cuisine.

A romantic Candlelit Dinner for two is also available on the private terrace, with lobsters as a main course and a bottle of well chilled white wine; a chance to gaze across the bay interrupted only by an attentive waiter….. bliss!
