Hotel Tresanton is a luxurious affair. Hotelier Olga Polizzi created one of the first truly chic British seaside boltholes, and over twenty years on it effortlessly holds its own without any pretention. Nestled on a hillside, the thirty beautifully designed boutique bedrooms offer enviable sea views, while access to sub-tropical gardens, a beach club and a private wooden yacht mean you'll find plenty of places to relax on this unique stretch of coastline. A stay at Tresanton includes endless memorable experiences: enjoy lunch on the terrace or supper in the restaurant, where Italian-inspired dishes showcase Cornish suppliers and seasonal ingredients at their best.



The colourful harbour brings a hive of activity to the village; rent sea kayaks, go crabbing or experience the thrill of sailing on the Cornish waters.

Located in the coastal village of Saint Mawes, the hotel is a ten-minute walk from St Mawes Castle and the harbour, with ferry services to Falmouth.
By car: The hotel is around 5 hours 30 mins from London, or 3 hours 30 mins from Bristol.
By train: Truro station is a half-hour drive from the hotel, with services from London Paddington taking around 4 hours 30 minutes.
