    « Fantastic break »

    This is the third time we've visited this hotel this year! We always receive a warm welcome. All staff are pleasant, helpful and efficient. The bedrooms have recently been refurbished and have everything needed for a good stay. We have stayed here with a group of friends twice this year and this time just the two of us. Every visit enjoyed equally. Love the Christmas decor in the dining room, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening meals - plenty of choice and beautifully presented. My only worry is that this hotel will become so popular that they might not have room for us next time.

    « Hotel is great, resturant needs work. »

    When we visited the hotel seemed pretty deserted but I guess that is just the time of year. All the staff were very polite and attentive, from the front desk to the restaurant staff, they were happy to help. The room itself was very clean, well decorated and everything was catered for, a brief list of items supplied in the room. A tassimo machine with coffee pods + kettle and tea and coffee related items. dressing gown slippers flat screen tv Hair dryer. Heated towel rail. It was like a home away from home and I would definitely stay there again if the need arose. Now for the bad bit, the restaurant. It seems very overpriced for what it is. Its trying to be fine dining I think, but the quality just doesn't justify the price. The portion sizes were pretty small and around £16-£20 for an entrée. Most people seemed to order from the cheaper bar snack menu. But on the plus side they were happy to cater to our needs and you only have to ask for things like gluten free bread and they are happy to provide. To sum up, this is a very nice place to stay and we were very comfortable here.

    « Great value and service »

    We've just enjoyed 2 nights at this lovely hotel on their fantastic Groupon deal. Our room was 'out the back' rather than in the hotel and was clean, spacious and warm. Excellent en-suite bathroom with wonderful power shower. Couldn't ask for more. Friendly check in. In fact all staff excellent. Great buffet style, help yourself, breakfast - the sausages were particularly good. Didn't eat in the restaurant as it did look a bit expensive and nothing we fancied on the menu at the time. Lots of pubs/restaurants in town to eat in so you'd never go hungry here. Having lived in Cornwall for over 16 years we'd never really explored Lostwithiel. Lovely, quiet town with lots of antique shops to wander around. Everything we wanted right on the doorstep. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to our family and friends and have no doubt we'll be back at some point. Thank you.

    « Good Value »

    Stayed one night on a Groupon bed and breakfast deal, hotel reception not very grand and were in a room in the annex but clean, well furnished room and good hot shower and hot towel rail, TV worked well, hairdryer and iron and ironing board available in room. Breakfast was good ( although not impressed by freshly cooked omelette) and pleasant staff were all making an effort. Dining room smartly decorated.

    « Wonderful couple of nights! »

    We had two rooms at the Restormel Lodge hotel for two nights from 18th November. Both rooms were extremely well decorated and very clean. Breakfast was excellent (individually served one morning and buffet style the next). Staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We had a most enjoyable stay with the hotel being very well located for exploring Cornwall. Will definite be going back. Thank you to everyone at the hotel.

    Stayed for 2 night with my husband and the staff are lovely couldn't do enough for you they also asked if we would like a newspaper getting in the mornings. Room was beautiful really clean and comfortable. We had both tea and coffee facilities with hair dryer iron and ironing board in room. Our view was the swimming pool which shuts end of October. We were on room only basis as we were out and about but had evening meal there on our first night my husband had the Lamb shank which he said was very tasty one of the best he has had and the lasagne I had was beautiful and presentation of both meals was fantastic. Location is ideal as well just off main road 50 yards to pub would definitely stay here again.

    « A fantastic weekend »

    We were given a gift of two nights for two people and a dog. We have arrived home today after a brilliant weekend. Our first hotel visit with our dog. I have to admit I was a bit worried that because we were staying in a "doggie" room our room would be scruffy. NOT TRUE! In fact one of the nicest bedrooms we have stayed. Comfortable, warm and clean. The treats for our dog were a lovely touch. Breakfast was excellent and we travelled around many lovely sea side towns. A very central place to stay. We would highly recommend this hotel and if we do go back we would stay for longer.

    « Excellent Value and Comfort »

    We had three nights bed and breakfast here and were very happy with everything. The room was very warm, beds comfortable and cleanliness exceptional. Breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice - lots of fresh fruit, fruit salad, pastries, cereal, 'build your own muesli' - a brilliant idea. Coffee was lovely and cooked Cornish breakfast delicious. Super bread for toasting too. We would definitely go back. The staff are really pleasant and helpful and Lostwithiel is a nice little town, well placed for walking the SW Coast Path which is what we were doing. It was so nice to return here each evening. Highly recommended.

    « Nice winter break to Cornwall »

    My wife and I stayed at this hotel on a Groupon voucher and would definitely return, on our first night we ate in the restaurant and the food was very nice although the menu was limited for choice and because of this we found other eating houses for the remainder of our stay which is part of the adventure I think. One of the best breakfast selections we've ever had and all the staff were very helpful and friendly, with its central location for visiting numerous attractions around Cornwall. The hotel is a must stay with lovely spacious rooms and has plenty of car parking spaces, we will come back in the summer months

    « The Eden Project in winter »

    Stayed here for 2 nights as a convenient location for a visit to The Eden Project just a few miles away. I really enjoyed my stay and found the staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast filled me up for the day and had an excellent fish and chips meal in the bar in the evening. Just one minor moan. The cutlery they use looks very trendy but I found the knife difficult to use due to the odd shape of the handle. Thank you Bryony for sorting me out a normal knife .

    Had a fantastic weekend. The reception staff were all pleasant and very helpful. The waiters and waitresses were lovely and could not do enough for us. A lovely comfortable room with plenty of storage space and a decent sized flat tv. The breakfast was absolutely superb and anything that was requested was provided with no fuss. All in all a great stay and will certainly return again.

    « Comfortable, Friendly and Ideally located for exploring Cornwall »

    We stayed as a couple for one night having previously enjoyed a very relaxing stay a couple of years ago. If anything the hotel has got even better. We received a very friendly welcome and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Our room was very smart, well decorated and everything we needed including a large flat screen TV with a full range of channels. The bed was comfortable and we both enjoyed a great nights sleep. We were visiting my daughter and granddaughter and having them join us for a very tasty breakfast was no problem. We dined in the restaurant in the evening and again the menu was varied and catered for most tastes. If you are exploring Cornwall this is a great place to stay with easy access to most locations. The hotel has a swimming pool which i would guess is popular in warmer months. We will certainly be returning to this hotel.

    « Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! »

    We stayed at this hotel on a Groupon voucher and would definitely return. We stayed for 3 nights with breakfast included. The room was spacious and Bobby our beagle was totally spoilt. Finishing touches such as dog blanket, food and water bowls, litter bags and doggie treats were such a lovely touch. The room was a lovely size, clean, with tea, coffee, biscuits and all the toiletries. Home from home. Breakfast is lovely, sausages are so yummy. All self service, presented very well and with lots of variety. You will not go hungry! Lostwithiel is a lovely village, lots of antique shops, restaurants, takeaways and 3 pubs all on the doorstep and dog friendly. Hotel staff are always helpful, friendly and appear to be very happy in their work, with a smile on their face. We loved this place and would definitely return. Thank you for making our stay a very happy one.

    We arrived on the 12/11/16 thinking we were booked in for the night but I'd got the wrong date should of been 19/11/16 , the general manager who was on reception said that's not a problem if you want to stay we got the room ,that for us was superb as were the rest of the staff

    « Weekend Break at Restormal Lodge »

    Decent enough hotel and dog friendly which is a bonus with us as we were able to take our little dog Barney. In the room they provided a dog rug and a box with dog treats and doggy bags which was much appreciated. There were a few problems which wouldn't stop us going again but our experience could have been better. Our room was in a separate block which obviously had a damp problem as you could smell it on entering the room and the corner of the room by the floor did have a few spores. When you had a shower the walls remained wet and dripping all day despite leaving on the towel rail and air extractor fan. The room was very clean but a bit cramped with a double and single bed in it. Outside our room was a little courtyard which looked damp, sad and neglected. The moss needed cleaning up and perhaps a few pot plants to cheer the area up! The staff were friendly and helpful and we were given a little table in the bar to eat our breakfasts that we didn't have to leave our dog in the room. You can't take dogs in the main restaurant area which is fair enough. Would stay again but needs a little TLC.

    « Wonderful stay. »

    My husband, two friends and I stayed for 2 nights on a Groupon deal. Our rooms were beautifully decorated, impeccably clean, warm with comfortable bed and superb en-suite. We ate breakfast & dinner at the hotel. Breakfast was wonderful, with great selection, fresh fruit, cereals and help yourself to hot food. Our evening meal was beautifully prepared and presented and delicious! Would definitely recommend staying here and will be back again.

    Following clunky national DBB booking hiccups our room was upgraded foc by this Hotel. Gorgeous large spotless suite. Saturday Dinner good but printed menu very limited as booking not a cheapie break. Sunday breakfast busy, carvery style. Sunday Dinner poor, joint first choice gone and service took an eternity. Monday breakfast cooked to order, took ages, we were overlooked despite ordering twice. Staff lovely throughout.

    « Great Value for Money »

    My partner and I visited this hotel for a 3 night break at the end of October and were pleasantly surprised. we were greeted with a smile at the reception (which always helps!) and the check in process was very professionally carried out, quick and painless. We were in a room across from the main part of the hotel and were impressed on entering by both its size and cleanliness. Plenty of storage and large enough for 2 people to move around effortlessly. We were on a bed and breakfast basis and found the breakfast options more than adequate helped along by very friendly and welcoming waiting staff whom we found both attentive yet unobtrusive. All in all a very pleasurable stay at Restormel Lodge Hotel and we both look forward to a return visit next year, Thanks to all the staff who were so welcoming throughout our visit.

    « Would recommend »

    I stayed for 3 nights and would highly recommend as the room was well laid out clean and very comfortable, the staff were both friendly and helpful. I ate in the restaurant in the evenings and the food was very nice although the menu was limited but enough choice for a weeks stay. My plan is to return with the family and also for business.

    « 2+1 Dog »

    The hotel made us feel welcome and the room fully catered for 2+1 dog. The only black spot to the stay was the bill. I bought one bottle of Proseco and was charged for two. And the price charged was more than advertised. Breakfast on the final morning was late by twenty minutes. But, overall the service was good.

    « Best Western Restormel, Lostwithiel »

    I found a reasonably priced and very good value hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. Our room was a more expensive one and was good value. Lostwithiel is a charming town well situated to visit most of Cornwall's attractions.

    « A little gem »

    We booked a three night break in a standard room including breakfast. The room was larger than expected with plenty of storage and a larger than normal ensuite and was well equipped. The breakfast is buffet style with a good selection of hot and cold food and sets you up for the day. We eat every evening in the restaurant and have to say the quality of the food and the presentation was excellent and the chefs should be proud of what they produce. The staff are very good and always checked to ensure everything was OK. This is a little gem of a hotel and we will definitely be going back for a further visit. Highly recommend the hotel and it's location is ideal for visiting some of Cornwall's best attractions.

    « great weekend »

    My partner and I went on a long weekend to Restormel Lodge above in October, on a bed and breakfast basis and had a great visit. The staff were all really friendly and very helpful. We stayed in a double room on the ground floor that was very clean and well equipped. We had an evening meal in the restaurant on the first evening which was very good. We both had duck that was cooked very well and I had a sweet that I must say was really good. The breakfast was very good and a lot of choice. All in all a great trip and we hope to return soon.

    « Clean and comfy »

    Warm welcome. Wonderful bed. Small but adequate nicely decorated room. Good shower. Great breakfast with local produce - choice of Cornish Coffee - delicious. One thing that must improve - friendly young lass in restaurant had habit of balancing crocks etc and carrying them through restaurant. Wobbled a few times, near misses often. Other waiting on staff used trays for clearing - much safer. An accident waiting to happen. Would return to this hotel. Parking was a bonus in this location and no charge. Heated outdoor pool, but not at this time of year.

    « Weekend break »

    I took up a special offer for a short break in October. We stayed here in 2015 while visiting The Royal Cornwall Show and were very impressed by how this hotel was run, so when this special offer flashed up on my computer screen I didn't hesitate to book again. We stayed for two nights which included bed, breakfast and evening meal, which included everything on the menu (excluding drinks). As before the food and service was above what you would expect for a three star hotel. If you are thinking about staying here then I promise you won't be disappointed, the staff are young, energetic and eager to help make your stay enjoyable, especially Lyes. Thanks for a wonderful stay Seán Dorking, Surrey.

    « A Little Gem »

    Stayed here with my daughter for a 5 day break and I could not fault the hotel. Our room was clean and nicely decorated, the bed extremely comfortable and I could quite happily have taken the shower home with me. The staff were very friendly and happy to help in any way they could. Breakfast was great and we appreciated being able to order additional items such as smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, as well as eating from the hot and cold buffet. I ate dinner once in the restaurant and again could not fault it. We would definitely recommend and would gladly stay again.

    « Very Nice »

    Set in a really nice town with plenty to see After pulling in to one of many free parking spaces off to reception. Staffed by a really attentive duty manager who checked me in really promptly and booked me into the restaurant as the hotel was full I went up to my room which was lovely. It fit nicely between the corporate and boutique hotels. Clean, comfortable, large and quiet individually decorated without the overboard bits and pieces that some hotels go for. Hot water was plentiful and wifi was good. Only downside was view over roof of main building, but not every room can have a perfect view Food was very good quality at dinner and breakfast. Menu was small but good quality. I did get the impression that they weren't keen on people eating in the bar, lack of cutlery and condiments was a bit of a clue. If you need a hotel in the area then this is definitely one to consider

    « A Blissful Autumn Stay »

    My friend and I had a lovely one night stay in early October; we had to postpone an August booking because my friend broke her arm and the manager, Jane, was most helpful and considerate of our circumstances in rearranging when it involved the non-transferable application of a gift voucher. As it turned out, the October weather was so good that we were able to swim in the lovely outdoor pool and go cycling at Lanhydrock house. The 3 -course dinner was superb, compliments to the chef and to the sweet Asian waiter who served us most obligingly. Would recommend the hotel and stay again

    We used this hotel as a base to visit mid Cornwall, and what a pleasant hotel it is.

    « A Pleasant Stay »

    I booked a three night stay in the first week of October 2016 with Groupon voucher. Although the terms on the Groupon voucher said that once booked dates cannot be changed, the hotel was very flexible in changing the date of booking. I changed the dates twice without any trouble and free of charge. All hotel staff were very friendly, polite and welcoming. We're given Room 36 which was a few steps away from the main building. The room was really big, clean and nicely decorated with TV. There was a double and a single beds in the room with all other standard furniture with tea/coffee making facilities, and still had plenty of room to move around. The bed was very comfy, providing a good night sleep after a day trip to other places. The bathroom was also big, very nice and clean with a shower like a mini water cannon ? superb. Two hotel car parks are available at the back of the hotel free of charge. The restaurant where the daily breakfast was served, was decorated nicely with comfortable dining chairs. In one corner, BF cereals, pastries, juices, fresh fruit salad (not tinned) , yogurt and fresh fruits were kept and the buffet type cooked breakfast was available in the other corner. The swimming pool was just right next to the restaurant and viewable through the window. In addition, specific items can be ordered for breakfast as required. It's clearly visible that the management and other members of staff doing their best to maintain the standard of this hotel and I hope they continue to do so as we'll be returning next year too.

    « 2nd Visit - certainly did not disappoint »

    2nd visit this year. This hotel is a wonderful place to stay. The staff are all trained to a consistently high standard - welcoming, helpful, polite and friendly. The food is also very good with very generous proportions and served with a smile. The bed, breakfast and evening meal deal is excellent value for money. The rooms are clean, spacious and thoughfully laid out with everything you need and more. This time we explored some of the nearby delightful unspoilt coves practically on the doorstep plus Charlestown and Mevagissey. Would definitely go back again.

    my friend and I arrived mid afternoon and checked in! The manager was on reception and was very welcoming. Our room was lovely and light, clean and airy. We unpacked quickly and then had a walk around Lostwithiel. On our return we decided to have a swim in the hotel pool. It was super! We had it to ourselves and it was just beautiful because it was heated! A shower followed and then dinner! That was excellent! Loved every mouthful. After an energetic day, getting into bed was just the job. My bed was warm and comfortable and I had a good night's sleep. Before breakfast we had another swim (fabulous way to start the day). Breakfast provided plenty to choose from and was another satisfying meal which set us up nicely for the day! I'd go again if I could!

    I have to confess that Lostwithiel was a new name to me. A trip to Cornwall was what we wanted and as Best Western regulars we opted for Lostwithiel. An inspired selection ! First of all we fell in love with the town itself - lovely river walks and a welcoming close knit community. The hotel was tremendous in all respects. Extremely friendly staff, comfortable, well decorated, clean rooms and a comfortable lounge with well stocked bar helped !! Superb breakfast with freshly cooked as-much-as-you-can-eat food both Cornish Full English and continental was on offer.

    We stayed here for four nights in one of the better rooms behind reception. The room was comfortable, light and airy with a king size bed and recently refurbished en-suite. All the staff were very polite and helpful and the food was also excellent and well cooked, we ate in the bar on two occasions and I have to say the fish & chips we had one night was one of the nicest I have eaten. There was only one thing that I had to complain about and that was we were not asked if we would like a suite after our dishes were cleared and the lad serving us disappeared, having said that it would not stop us returning, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    « Stopover en route further south »

    Stayed for 2 nights on the way further south. Hotel was very nice, clean and well maintained. Staff friendly and helpful. We had a room in the annexe which was fine, near to the overflow car park so loading/unloading luggage was easy. Comfortable room and very clean bathroom. Breakfast was good, plenty of hot food and pastries and cereals, no complaints! One point though, we went in the bar about 6.15pm for a drink and whilst a pleasant room, it lacked any real ambience, just tv's on the wall dispensing depressing Sky news (don't need that on holiday!), really needs some pleasant background music. A couple of tables had empty glasses and cups on them when we went in and weren't cleared for the time we were there, despite staff walking past! Minor gripe really but meant as constructive criticism. Would happily stay again.

    We stayed here for a couple of days. Easy to find, loads of parking and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel has an unusual layout . We had a room at the back overlooking the carpark. It had been refurbished to a high standard, plenty of room and a spacious bathroom.Good selection at breakfast with plenty of choice, dinner was good too. The only thing was that the adjoining walls are thin, we could hear our neighbours talking, the tv and them snoring and everything things else they got up to ;-) , soundproofing please.

    Friendly staff, clean fresh bedroom, plenty of parking, close to centre of Lostwithiel. Car park signs a little confusing as to where car parks were/how to access. Suggest you pick go left or right but not both.

    « An ideal hotel for exploring the many attractions and countryside in this beautiful county. »

    We requested a room with an walk in shower and this was arranged in a newly refurbished room on the first floor accessed via a short flight of stairs. This was arranged following a telephone conversation with the helpful receptionist made by her to check with us that the room would be satisfactory. It overlooked the garden and car park giving us a quiet stay without traffic noise. The only slight problem was the lack of air conditioning in the room which meant that it became very hot following afternoon sun but this could not be helped without major rebuilding work.

    Good location. Nice rooms,very good food and good parking in a very built up area where parking is at a premium. Helpful friendly staff who always had a smile!My only beef was the becoming increasingly standard firm pillows which were so uncomfortable due to an old neck injury that I didn't sleep well.The moral is to probably take my pillows with me in future.However it did not prevent my enjoyment of my break.The weather was good and everywhere we wanted to go(ieHeligan) etc was a short drive,the local quaint shops were lovely and I would definitely return plus pillows!

    Good choice to visit Landhydrock and Heligan. Room good size but bathroom smelt musty. Adequate parking Breakfast Ok , but why serve horrible choice of cheap factory packets of jam and marmalade , for a decent hotel quality, homemade if possible , jam and marmalade are a must.They served cornish butter so why not cornish made preserves and honey? Shame as food otherwise was Ok. And the toaster was a joke, it took 3 runs through it to get bread brown!!

    Just spent 4 days at this hotel. First, it is situated in an ideal spot to visit many of the sites around Cornwall. Secondly the staff are marvellous, from the reception to chef, diningroom staff, and cleaners, nothing was too much trouble and everywhere was clean and well presented. Thirdly the food was wonderful and plenty of it, not only in the restaurant but bar food as well. All in all first rate hotel

    This was a late birthday treat for my husband and our 51st wedding anniversary. We hit gold. The hotel is in a very nice setting, our room overlooked the rear garden, it was perfect. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. The food was fantastic, and cooked just as requested, the portions are large so think before ordering more than one course.

    Stayed 3 nights on Groupon Deal. Nice rooms, everything you needed. Lovely comfy beds. All nice and clean. Went to shut window at night and found the hinge was broken, so it was jammed open. Told reception and they had someone look at it next day, but it needed a whole new window, so when we returned we had a big gap at top of window also. We were told it was safe, but it was a shame as it was a little noisey , glad it wasn't a really cold night !! Breakfast was buffet style. Bacon and potato fritters were too hard, but the rest was ok. Lovely sausages, but my husbands had a tiny bone in it. Oh dear. Was dissapointed that pool wasn't open, shut for maintaince. Rooms were on outside of main hotel. Nice and easy from overflow car park into your room, no need to go into hotel at all. Wifi kept going on and off and they give you the wrong wifi info on welcome pac. So I had to go to reception to get it. Was a nice stay apart from the odd probs.

    « A Cornish gem. »

    We postponed our annual leave until the cheaper after school holidays period. I am so glad we did otherwise we might have missed this absolute gem of a hotel. All the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. On a couple of occasions people were late for breakfast but the chef cooked theirs to order without complaint or bad comment. The toaster is a little quirky, to get really dark toast you have to feed it through 3 times, but this gives you time to converse with fellow guests. The breakfast was buffet style and other items could be ordered without extra charge such as veggie sausages, poached eggs and scrambled eggs. The evening menu had a good range of choices and was well priced. The food was well presented and was tasty. The hotel is clean and well looked after. A really good and relaxing time was had by all. Well done.

    « Small rooms, expensive »

    I stayed here for 1 night during a business trip. The room I got was small and the price was very high (121£). I can understand it is high season in August but the price is just to hight for the room you're getting. Nevertheless the rooms were clean and had everything you need.

    « Lovely staff, beautiful food »

    We stayed at the hotel for the August bank holiday weekend, upon arrival I explained that I was disabled and the receptionist quickly changed my room to a ground floor, walk in shower room without any fuss whatsoever. We ate in the hotel restaurant on the first night mainly due to convenience as we arrived in Cornwall at 8.20am, we were sooo tired and the food was fab, too much to eat!, On Sunday after a morning at The Eden Project and an afternoon sightseeing we returned to the hotel and had a swim (more like a bob in my case) in the hotel pool which was warm and sheltered. We left after another fab breakfast on Monday and travelled the north Cornish Coast to Padstow, fish and chips at Rick Stein`s. The hotel staff were bright and cheery full of information and wished us well on our departure. Well done to all who made our stay enjoyable.

    « Not too bad »

    Stayed there for three nights. As we had a dog we were put in the older tired rooms which face onto the car park. They have seen better days. The breakfast actually decent for a buffet style and faces onto the pool. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The bar is out of a ferry and lacks charm. But as a jumping off point to visit the area it's well worth considering.

    « Nice hotel, great hospitality »

    We came on a weekend for one night. We checked in really late, but the reception desk was manned, thankfully. The only gripe was that we had requested a room for our pet dog and we hadn't received a response from them in time before arrival, so we had to arrange things at check in. There was ample parking available, as this hotel has a main car park, and then an overflow one for a total of two parking lots. Staff were very gracious and even provided free milk from their kitchen for a little one, which was very much appreciated. Morning dining staff were great as well. We didn't stay for breakfast, but whilst we were waiting for the morning milk, I observed them to be very professional and quite attentive to the guests that were dining in for the morning brunch. We didn't utilise the outdoor pool that was there, but the water looked to be quite clean and the pool area itself looked to be quite well maintained. A good stay; I would recommend this hotel.

    « No hot water!!! »

    Stayed in a family suite which was fairly cramped and seemed a little damp. We arrived late one evening visited the eden project the very next day before leaving early on the following day. We did not enjoy a hot shower on any of the three occasions we showered and my grandaughter was in tears with the freezing shower one evening. Both hot and cold breakfast was very good and tasty and the breakfast staff very organised. At £10 per head for adults and £5 for children I would have expected it to be. Strangely these prices, however, are only available if you prebook the night before!! Would definitely NOT revisit and suggest when booking that you agree a non payment clause if no hot water. This might get the management to overhaul the boiler etc. The fact that they were fully booked with a great many showering so water had run out is a feeble excuse.

    The staff were so helpful. On arrival they were fully booked and Simon looked for a place for us in Plymouth. The lady there was kind enough to book us in on internet. We returned the following evening. Such a welcome and so friendly. The room was superb. Bed comfortable and bathroom squeaky clean. The breakfast was a very good buffet and main breakfast was ordered with tea or coffee. How it only got 3 stars is beyond me. Overall the best hotel we stayed in while travelling for 3 weeks. Thank you so much.

    « Reasonable stay but a few tweaks could make all the difference »

    My Mum, Dad, sister and I Stayed at The Restormel Lodge Hotel a couple of weeks ago for 2 nights while in the area to visit The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan (which are definitely worth a visit). Overall, we enjoyed our stay, the rooms were clean and a reasonable size (if a little too hot), the staff friendly and helpful (they will sort out discounted tickets for The Eden Project and Lost Gardens for you so you don't have to queue when you get there) and the food in the restaurant tasty (although disappointing that their Cornish cheese selection consisted of cheddar and brie as they'd run out of the actual Cornish cheeses!). There are two ways in which this hotel could be improved. The first is that while the rooms are nicely decorated, the corridors outside the bedrooms look a bit tired and don't give the best first impression when you walk in from the car park. The second is that some of the younger staff, while friendly and helpful, lacked initiative and could probably do with more training and direction For example, at breakfast on our first morning most of the hot and cold buffet selection had run out but despite it being quite early in the breakfast sitting the staff didn't replenish it, so in the end we had to ask them to do this. This wouldn't prevent us from returning if we're ever back in the area; however, it would have made our recent stay that bit more enjoyable and enabled us to give it a 4 star rating so management please take note!

    « Lovely Stay »

    Stayed for 2 nights. The place looks tired when you first walk in but the bedroom was lovely, airy, fresh, very clean. Complimentary fruits, biscuits, water and "Tassimo" coffee made a great welcome. The restaurant does not have an extensive menu but the food is absolutely fabulous! Very friendly staff. I would highly recommend this place. It is only 10 minutes away from the Eden Project and 30 minutes from the Lost Garden of Heligan.

    We stayed for 2 nights here after booking last minute to change from a previous hotel which was uninhabitable! We asked for a cot in the room which was provided along with a lovely baby quilt. The hotel was clean and fresh and a breath of fresh air after the previous one. Room was large and clean, excellent standard of housekeeping. Good selection of teas and coffees etc. Breakfast was good, lots of choice and well stocked. Would definitely stay again.

    « Tired and dated but good breakfast »

    Stayed here for 2 nights as we travelled down from London to attend a friends wedding. No night manager meant that when we arrived, at midnight, our keys were left at reception in an envelope which is something I've not experienced before. Bedrooms were a good size and ticked all the basics but the lack of any air conditioning meant a very hot and restless nights sleep. Since this room was on the ground floor was not that comfortable with leaving the windows open. However, on plus side, staff were helpful and friendly.

    « Brilliant Hotel with Fantastic Staff »

    Stayed for 1 night whilst visiting family and going to the nearby Eden Project (just up the road from this hotel). From check-in to check-out we were very well looked after. Tracey the Front of House Manager was very helpful and friendly at check-in. We booked a dog friendly room and had a lovely surprise when we saw the water and food bowls, dog blanket, treats and doggy bags with a note welcoming our pooch! Never had that in any other hotel. The Deputy General Manager Jane was wonderful, very friendly and approachable and made us feel right at home. We were looked after very well at dinner and breakfast by Lily the Restaurant Supervisor, what a gem she was! Very professional and friendly and always carried a smile on her face. A welcoming face to see in the morning. The food was superb, very well presented and very good value, with plenty of choice. The spicy peanuts on the bar very more-ish. All in all a very good stay, we even used the outdoor pool which was good fun even on a grey english day. We will be back at the next given opportunity, I feel we will become regulars now.

    « One night stay, very pleased! »

    Firstly I must say the staff were an absolute pleasure, we were greeted at the front desk by the deputy manager and throughout the night she was always on hand for anything. Also the young male member of staff on the bar was very professional and accommodating!! Our room was lovely all be it not newly refurbished, it had everything we needed, the bath was well sized and I didn't feel like a sardine, and a real nice touch was having a fan in the room!! Lastly we set out at 8:45pm to go for some dinner in a nearby restaurant only to be turned away due to them closing at 9, so I phoned the hotel to see if we still had time to eat in the bar, despite the time being 20/30 minutes past food cut off, they still accommodated us and served us a lovely meal, a big thank you to the chef Kieron as the quality was lovely and it wasn't rushed!! Thank you very much for our stay we both enjoyed it a lot!

    « Somewhat spoilt by after-stay problems »

    My opinion is somewhat soured by events after we left, so may be somewhat biased. The hotel itself has a pleasant outlook at the back over rolling Cornish hills, although it does sit on the main road through the village of Lostwithiel. There are about 20 rooms in the hotel itself with more rooms in an annex. Our room (one double and one single bed) overlooked the car park (enough for about a dozen cars with further space nearby) with views over the Cornish countryside. It was nicely furnished with a desk and lounge chair and an en-suite bathroom with integral shower. Unfortunately there were a couple of problems. A mysterious clicking noise throughout the night turned out to be the central heating system fighting against the turned-off radiator. The other problem was the wafer-like thickness of the dividing walls so that we were distracted by the couple in the next room talking as well as from the banging of room doors, especially in the early morning when the ?business? customers left the hotel. The breakfast (buffet) was, however, very good with lots of both hot and cold food and a coffee machine for the ?efficiados?, all overlooking the (small) outdoor pool and lounging area. We did not sample either the bar or the restaurant. Checking in was effortless although the (single) receptionist had to be summoned with a bell, which fact later proved to be an irritation when we had to wait over 10 minutes to collect our room key while a booking was taken over the ?phone. The main problem occurred after we left when we discovered that we had left a cable in the room. A ?phone call resulted in it ?being found? but we were told that there would be a charge of £5 for its return, which, upon reflection was pretty petty for an international hotel chain (it transpired that this hotel is run as a franchise, which was a surprise, but might account for the penny-pinching attitude). In the event, the cable that was sent was not ours, so it could not have ?been found? in our room at all and it wasn't until I complained that we had paid for something that we didn't want that our £5 was returned. All in all then, if you are looking for a B&B is this better than a farmhouse-type one and, if so, does it tick all the boxes you would expect if you plumped for a reliable large hotel? That's not for me to answer, but, at least I hope this will give you an idea of what you can expect here.

    « Clean, quiet and nice food! »

    Room has all what you would want, fan, hairdryer, koffie-thea maker, alarmclock. We where in room 33 not connected to the Hotel itself. Breakfast is buffet and lovely! Lostwhiel is a tiny town, no busses, but a trainstation. No tourist info office! You have to ask at the hoteldesk, for all the info. I spoke to a lady in the pool and she said it was a great temperture.

    Booked a superior double. This did not disappoint room was lovely and bed was comfortable. Only thing missing was air conditioning (there was a fan which we used).

    « Superb value for families. »

    Having booked a family room with bunk beds I was pleasantly surprised to find the bunk beds in a separate, adjoined room, rather than squeezed into the main room as expected. This allowed a bit of space for both my boys and me! This was greatly appreciated. The room was clean and tastefully decorated, as was the bathroom - with added benefit of a nice powerful shower. This was a super find to act as a base to explore this part of cornwall, with the Eden Project and Newquay in easy reach as well as the beaches around St Austell Bay.

    « Very good choice! »

    We stayed here for five nights using Lostwithiel as a base to explore Cornwall. The hotel is close to the main routes so traveling around is relatively easy. Lostwithiel is on the railway network if public transport is required. Our room, recently refurbished, was superb. We had booked a deluxe double and this was situated at the rear of the hotel overlooking the garden and upper car park. The room had all the usual "extras" but there was also a coffee making machine, daily fresh fruit and a welcome bag of the chefs home made fudge....delicious! The hotel does have an outdoor swimming pool and a well stocked bar. Breakfast was buffet style and provided more or less everything you might want. The food wasn't cooked to order except on our last morning when there were few guests in residence. We ate at the hotel on some evenings and our only criticism was that the lasagne wasn't particularly tasty and was very dry. However, we were well satisfied with our other choices. Service was generally very good and whilst we don't usually single out individuals ( as there are unseen staff ), we have to say that Jenna( hope her name is spelt correctly!) was particularly helpful. There were absolutely no problems with housekeeping and check in/check out was quick and efficient. Within the hotel is a plentiful supply of information leaflets for Cornwall's many attractions. We would certainly recommend this hotel.

    « Good Quality Food and Rooms »

    We stayed here on a short break to visit this area of Cornwall and very much enjoyed the stay and also the quaint town of Lostwithiel which really seems to consist of one high road and one or two roads leading from the high road. Well worth a walk round as has some nice shops and pubs and the area by the river is scenic for a built environment. The staff at the hotel were friendly and efficient and we enjoyed the bar food selection and breakfasts.

    « Fantastic in every way! »

    We booked the hotel as we wanted to visit the Eden Project. As a base for there and for the area around St Austal, this hotel is perfect. It is in the process of being refreshed and the owners are obviously investing a great deal to enhance what is already a very comfortable hotel. Breakfast is a full breakfast (as opposed to the limited hot buffet offered by other hotels) with local produce and great flavours. Evening meals are also good value. But better than all of this is the service. Friendly, helpful and always smiling, they went out of their way to assist, even calling up staff who were off shift to help us locate a pregnancy pillow we had lost. I cannot rate this hotel highly enough. Thank you! Ben

    « Looks can be deceiving »

    From the outside this hotel looks a bit run down, but actually looks can be deceiving. I stayed for two nights in a double "Deluxe" booking directly on the Best Western website which was offering the top of the range room for the same money as a basic single. The room was very nice, with a spotlessly clean modern bathroom, Freeview HD television, and the usual tea/coffee and in addition a can of Tango and some fruit. Deluxe? well it felt appointed and clean, and comfortable all until you wanted to sleep - the mattress was particularly soggy which meant you felt like you were sleeping on a slope. Being on my own, I slept in the centre which wasn't worn out and hence didn't end up feeling like I was falling out of bed. You could actually see the dips in the mattress. It's worth mentioning that the hot water supply was rather brown in colour from the local water supply, nothing too unusual for the area but filling the bath with a brown soupy liquid for a bath is rather off putting. Breakfast was excellent, all well cooked and the coffee bought to the table was delicious. The hotel has a very small outdoor swimming pool, and an Electric Car charging point. Overall for the price I paid it wasn't bad just shame I didn't sleep very well from the mattress.

    « Excellent medium sized hotel in a nice location. We enjoyed our stay there »

    We enjoyed staying at this at this hotel, for one night, on the Tuesday after Easter. The Hotel is conveniently located within the picturesque town of Lostwithiel, some of Cornwalls' major attractions are close by. Car parking is plentiful with an overflow car park close by. Checking in, & out, was completed with the minimum of fuss, all the hotel staff were found to be friendly & helpful. Our room (suite) was large, comfortable, quiet, spotlessly clean and modern, as was the bathroom. Restaurant & bar service was excellent, the food, both dinner & the breakfast buffet was good,with local produce, where possible, being used. We stay in many hotels every year, the Restormel Lodge is highly recommended.

    Stayed at the hotel one night, the room was nice and clean although a little noisy as probably somebody on another room forgot the telly on all night and plus there was a weird noise like a ticking or pounding but I couldn't understand what it was, however nothing major. Lostwithiel is a nice place but not to spend long. Breakfast could be better but did the job. would stay again if passing by.

    « Excellent food and brilliant location for exploring the area. »

    Staff were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent value for money - we had breakfast and dinner included with no restrictions on choice. Our rooms were all very clean and comfortable. Well laid out with everything you need. The location of this hotel is excellent for exploring with many attractions on the doorstep - Lanhydrock, Fowey, Heligan, Eden Project and Lostwithiel itself is a delight. Thank you.

    We were looking for a reasonable price hotel to stay to see the Eden Projetc. They were flexible with the bookingwhen we suddenly had to change week. Hotel clean and comfy. No problems at all. Handly location to explore. Pubs and restirants in town gave reasonable choice. Would stay again if needed hotel in that area.

    This is a pleasant enough hotel with LOVELY STAFF but a slightly tired décor. It is a bot "Off the beaten track" but it would be handy for the EDEN PROJECT. It is, for the standard of hotel, reasonably priced.

    Nice hotel in a nice location with plenty of parking. Staff are helpful and pleasant. Arrived late in the evening and the check in was speedy. Ate in the restaurant food was ok but I felt it was a little over priced. Wanted to do some work but struggled with the Wifi. The room was nice and I would stay here again but would most probably eat elsewhere.

    « An excellent hotel »

    I have been having to go to Bodmin of and on for business for over 2 years now and always stay at this hotel. Even though my client has moved location to further away, I still stay here due to the excellent facilities, comfortable rooms and friendly staff. As a woman travelling for business on her own, it is important to me to feel 'comfortable' in any hotel I stay in (and I stay in a lot!) and would always recommend Restormel Lodge to anyone

    « Not bad, but not great »

    We stayed here for two nights in February 2016. At this time the hotel was advertised as having been refurbished recently. The room was clean and felt newly done, but the rest of the hotel seemed dated, We understand it is an older building and there is only so much you can do, but it had a very "80's" feel to it, it reminded me of Holiday Inn's 30 years ago, and not the best ones either. We did not eat dinner in the hotel, if breakfast was an indication of meals then we are glad we didn't. The breakfast portions were the smallest I have had in recent years, especially the eggs, (they must have very small hens in Cornwall) but despite the size the quality of produce was really good. The hotel was quiet due to the time of the year, but that is no excuse for a hotel to re-hash the breakfast pastries....lovely and fresh on the Saturday morning with a full tray, but a bit stale on the Sunday with whatever was left over from the day before, would that be an indication of dinner?? All in all this hotel is a place to sleep, not a place to "experience".

    « Excellent Stay »

    I stay at the Great Western hotels quite regularly for business purposes I always find the staff very helpful smart and professional The food is always of a very good standard and I have never felt the need to complain about anything The rooms are always clean and tidy and I also enjoy a restful nights sleep There is always a good choice on the breakfast menu and you can have as much as you want the staff seem to be very helpful and will be flexible if you need to eat before the actual times I would have no hesitation at recommending Great Western Hotels

    Excellent 2 night stay - very comfy king size bed, attentive staff, new bathroom and very clean room. Good breakfast. Hotel is on a main road so we were glad to have requested a room at the rear. Just a 2 minute walk from pubs and restaurants in Lostwithiel itself.

    My wife and I were totally blown away by the value of this winter stay at this superb friendly hotel while travelling to West Cornwall. In short we received a very warm welcome which continued throughout our short stay. Our room was very comfortable and the dining in experience was most enjoyable. Thanks to Jane and the team, think we will be back next year maybe for a little longer.

    « Brightening up a rainy January »

    Our generous student daughter bought us a Groupon voucher for a night's bed and breakfast and we added a second night. We had a really comfy and enjoyable weekend stay. Our room was lovely with a huge bed, TV, tea and fresh coffee making facilities and nice extras like shortbread, fruit, 7Up and bottled water. The en suite bathroom was fresh and beautifully done out and we had nice toiletries provided. Wifi was pretty stable. There was a hairdryer, iron and board...everything we needed for a comfort stay was there. Staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfasts generous and we ate in the restaurant both nights and had lovely meals..the scallop starter was a bit pricey for the amount served but the quality was excellent, other courses very nicely cooked and, overall, prices were fairly average. Lostwithiel is a pretty town, quiet in January as you might expect, but a good base for visiting the Eden Project, which we enjoyed, and other very lovely little Cornish fishing ports . We would definitely use the hotel again.

    « Friendly staff and good service »

    We recently stayed at the Great western hotel for a local night away, we were greeted by friendly reception staff and quickly checked in. Our room was clean and spacious with tea and coffee. We decided to eat in the hotel as it was easier and we were not disappointed. The young man behind the bar was polite and helpful, we were served promptly and the food was excellent. Very well presented food and tasted lovely. The hotel itself could do with some work done on it as the roof was leaking in the restaurant and by reception but this did not put us off. Breakfast again was lovely and service prompt. We would definitely return.

    « Has a nice reticent feel to it. »

    I stayed here with my family for a night while we where travelling and i felt welcome before we even reached the reception desk. The staff where perfect. The barman was very kind and friendly he even brought over the tv remote for us in the sitting area. Obviously he must have sensed that we couldn't take anymore East 17 Christmas songs on music channel. Although it is a Best Western and because of that you might think of the hotel as well... owned by a big company with a massive chain of hotels so everything will be standard issue and have a clone sort of repetitive feel to it. However that was not the case at all. It was very unique, the Christmas decorations where beautiful and it had a very family owned and orientated feel to it while keeping a modest cosy vibe. The room was spotless. My sincerest thank's to the cleaners, receptionist's, barman and the manager for keeping very high standards.

    This is a clean, comfortable and well-run hotel with very pleasant, attentive staff. There is ample parking space and good disabled access. Breakfasts are excellent and the dinners are well-cooked and presented, though there are too few choices on the winter menu. Drinks are pricey, and the wine list requires uprating.

    We came back here after excellent stay last year to explore the areas we missed, unfortunately standards had slipped. We booked a superior room, which had large King size bed,fantastic walk in wet room, fantastic power shower and good quality toiletries, room excellent. We booked a meal in the restaurant on our first night, we had a drink in the bar before dinner, where the service was awful, barman preferred to talk to others than serve. We then ordered wine with the meal, and the bottle was just plonked on table with screw cap on, not what you would expect in a hotel like this. We both ordered the breast of duck which was very tough. Breakfast was buffet style but our cooked was lukewarm. Hotel is right in town so there are plenty of other places to eat and drink if you prefer. Also good walks around the area from the hotel. Wi-fi was very good !

    « wedding party »

    Last year we were in Cornwall looking for a hotel that could hold a wedding reception for us as we had decided to get married at Carnglaze Caverns This was the 3rd hotel on our list and we thought it would turn out to be out of our price range. However we arranged to meet the manager Simon on one of our visits to Cornwall and we explained what we were looking for. He showed us around the hotel and we were impressed with the look of the rooms and of the hotel in general. The staff were all kind and extremely helpful. After doing some sums Simon came back to us with a really good price for a 2 night stay with breakfast on the wedding morning, a wedding reception dinner and a wedding breakfast on the morning after. From the point we said yes to him until we left after the actual event the hotel bent over backwards to help in any way possible. We are not local to the hotel and would be traveling from Hampshire so everything was done via phone calls, e-mail and the odd visit when we were down to sort other parts of the wedding out. We had 35 people to our reception, in 15 rooms. When we asked about menu choices Simon told us that it was our day and that we could have whatever we wanted. He asked us to pick 3 starters, mains and deserts and then let him know what we wanted. He then made up a menu for us and sent it via e-mail for our approval. He also offered to find wedding car hire, flowers and anything else we may require. The hotel was always on the end of the phone and sorted out any problems the moment they came up so that by the time we all started to arrive for the actual event everything was ready. He had even gone as far as letting other guest know that the main dining room would be closed for a private function on the wedding night so that we could have it to ourselves. (meals were still available in the bar area for other guests) This was something we had not asked for but shows the level of thought that had gone into it on the hotels part. All of our rooms were immaculate and the suite we had was big enough for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready in. They have family rooms as well for those with children and rooms that allow you to bring your dogs. We had the wedding dinner table laid out the way we wanted and the food cooked on the night was first class. We were given a complementary bottle of champagne at the table and some of the little extras that were done to the food to make it extra special were fantastic. When it came to checkout we did have a small issue with the bill, where we had paid for the rooms in a room by room basis there had been a slight muddle up with the 2 rooms left to pay. However this was soon sorted out and the mistake was quickly found. To me the way a problem is handled is just as important as when everything goes right. All in all i cannot fault this hotel, or its staff. From the lady that cleaned our room, all the way to the manager himself. I wish more businesses were run this way and i cannot thank them enough for making our stay, and our wedding the perfect event it was. Thank you.. Simon & Lesley

    Just had a weeks holiday in Cornwall and stayed at the Best Western Restormel Hotel located in the town of Lostwithiel. The hotel is ideally situated for touring around Cornwall being located on the A390 with the Eden project and Lanyhydrock only being a couple of miles away. The town is steeped in history and has a museum and castle to visit. We stayed in room 37 in an annex away from the main hotel building it was very quite, was comfortable and had everything we needed. The restaurant food was of good quality well cooked and nicely presented. Staff were friendly and tried to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. If I return to Cornwall I would stay at this hotel again.

    A bit tired this hotel.. Having used Best Western many times this one is better than it looks!
