Cornwall – Hotel Tresanton

Cornwall - Hotel Tresanton

Comprising a cluster of buildings decorated in blues and whites, the Tresanton is a former 1940s yacht club with a distinctly nautical feel. Bought by Olga Polizzi in 1996 and reopened two years later, the hotel has 29 individually designed rooms, including two family suites. A new house, Rock Cottage, with a family room and a showpiece suite, a kitchen, private garden and two balconies, will open this summer. The small restaurant serves a daily-changing menu; the hotel also has
a massage room, a screening room and a 48ft yacht for private charters.

X-factor ‘The view is spectacular,’ says Gold List contributor Rufus Purdy. ‘All rooms look out over St Mawes Bay, and guests – many of whom have their own private balconies – can while away the hours watching boats bob, seagulls sweep and storm clouds gather over the wide, blue expanse.’
