Built as a prestigious hotel by a local tradesman in 1934, the Cliff Head hotel has been under private ownership for many years. The hotel offers Free Wi-Fi and is perfectly located on a private road in Carlyon Bay, directly opposite the Carlyon Bay hotel. Overlooking beautiful sandy beaches and coves and close to many scenic clifftop walks offering gorgeous panoramic views of the amazing cornish coastline, the hotel is right in the middle of the Cornish Riviera, which makes it the perfect base from which guests can go out and explore the numerous and wonderful sights Cornwall has to offer. Whether it be old Castles, historic houses, beautiful gardens which, thanks to the cornish climate all year round being perfect for growing, are home to many varieties of tropical plantlife or the many fishing villages close by, guests won't be short of things to see and do to make their stay a memorable experience they'll want to relive many times.
The hotel overlooks beautiful sandy beaches on which guests can spend the day sunbathing, splashing around in the sea or exploring the coves dotted along the coastline. The location of the hotel also provides easy travelling access to many attractions such as the quaint coastal villages and ports of Looe, Polperro and Mevagissey. There is a golf course almost adjacent to the hotel with 2 more situated close by as well as watersports, horse riding, boat trips and fishing. Just 3miles away is the stunning Eden project, the worlds largest greenhouse with its vast array of plants providing beautiful colours year round. Just 9miles away are the Lost Gardens of Heligan, a garden of beauty set in 200 acres which were created and maintained by the Tremayne family for generations and was featured as a 'live' wildlife location by the BBC. The town of Charlestown with its Shipwreck Centre museum is only 2km away and the city of Truro with its cobbled streets, historic cathedral and delightful little craft shops and flea markets is only half an hours drive away. The National Maritime museum is 30km away in the town of Falmouth where guests can learn all about the maritime history of Cornwall or view the Sealife from the 'Underwater Tidal Zone'. In all, guests won't run out of things to do during their stay.

We stayed two weekend nights in a twin room and found it inviting and comfortable with many nice touches. The room was a little small but had everything we needed including luggage stands, several extra pillows and blankets, chairs, free wi-fi and
a clean bathroom with hot shower. I would have liked some local info (maps, places to eat) in the room but the reception staff were very helpful when asked. The continental breakfast was a bit sparse but the cooked breakfast was great and dining room staff were exceptionally friendly every time we ate in. It felt more expensive than it was. As for the location, we came in a car and it's a good thing because the immediate area is primarily residential, not touristy.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
The East Meets West Chinese restaurant and takeaway on Beach Rd (PL25 3PH) was a 15 min walk from the hotel. We went on Saturday evening and found the service outstanding, with an extensive menu and delicious food, all very reasonably priced in a welcoming atmosphere. I wish it were near my home!
