What is it that transforms your time away from an enjoyable to an exceptional experience? The devil is so often in the detail when it comes to giving guests a stay that is special, novel or unique. Which is why we’re delighted to announce that Talland Bay officially has four-star status in 2017, to add to our list of accolades.
Not that the best travel experiences are about badges. Regardless of the plaudits or the price tag, visitors are looking for destinations that provide greater authenticity, creativity and service. It could be staff who go the extra mile, an amazing location or the element of surprise. So what makes Talland Bay tick? Here are some of the things our guests love best:
Decadent little extras & special requests
When it comes to creature comforts and luxuries, we always like to spoil our guests with extra quality and a twist or two. Hence every one of our rooms comes with a deluxe hospitality tray of Cornish goodies (including Tregothnan Teas, Rodda's milk and Furniss Biscuits), plus hand-picked toiletries from The White Company. Small details make a big difference, we think.
Of course, should you want anything else to make your stay even more special, your wish is our command. You could celebrate with a bottle of Champagne, or perhaps order flowers or a box of handmade chocolates for the one you love? Adding these treats is easy; you can do so online as you book, or simply by asking a member of staff.
Nothing is too much trouble
Fancy putting your feet up with your favourite newspaper? Or perhaps your boots could do with a bit of a scrub down after a country walk? We love to take the hassle out of your holiday. Whether it’s parking your car or taking care of bulky luggage, it is no trouble at all and you’ll find our staff love to go the extra mile. We’re always happy to help you enjoy your stay, whether it’s recommending a local walk or telling you more about the hotel, its history, art and food.
Talking of food and dining in style, this is another aspect of Talland Bay guests love. Whether it is serving you the daily special al fresco on a summer afternoon, or arranging for your special dietary requirements with lactose free or vegan dishes, just let our staff know and we will do the rest.
Crafty Cocktails or Afternoon Tea with a Twist?
Bog standard beverages simply won’t do at Talland Bay, as a cursory glance at our drinks menu will quickly reveal. Our selection of special gins, ales, ciders and craft spirits has to be seen to be believed, along with some expertly mixed house cocktails for you to try. Even for the craft booze aficionado, we are sure to have something new for you to try!
Or if that sounds a little too potent, we also serve excellent afternoon teas. What could be more delightful than treating yourself on a sunny afternoon, perhaps with a seat on the terrace, looking out over our colourful sculpture garden and sweeping sea views?
Your holiday itinerary, solved!
For all of our guests, time away is precious. There are also times when you don’t have the time to meticulously plan and book ahead for activities and events. Not a problem; we can help! Our staff can recommend or arrange trips and activities galore, from outdoor pursuits to ideal walks and idyllic beauty spots. We always have tickets to favourite Cornish attractions and beauty spots such as Trebah and The Lost Gardens of Heligan, while we can also provide advice and tickets for many of the best of local food and arts events.
Top dog for pet friendly features
While there are plenty of hotels and places to stay in Cornwall that accept dogs these days, it is rare to find the words ‘luxury’ or ‘four-star’ anywhere near the title. Not here though! At Talland Bay your best friend needn’t be relegated to the doghouse. Every four-legged guest here receives a plush doggie blanket and some gourmet treats to welcome them, while our dog friendly rooms are by no means second class but best in show! Why, we even offer guests a special Wallace and Gromit package for a tail-wagging break!
