St Moritz Hotel is a stunning luxury hotel in Rock, Cornwall and a perfect family retreat on Cornwall’s wild north coast with plenty to keep the grown-ups happy too. Perched on the headland at Trebetherick between the fashionable Cornwall towns of Rock and Polzeath. The location is just five minutes from a sandy beach and a beautiful cliff-top footpath. In the hotel there is an artfully-decorated, laid-back bar upstairs, which adds to the convivial atmosphere, while the excellent facilities mean there is always something to do when Cornwall’s unpredictable weather takes a turn for the worse.
St Moritz Hotel Rooms
All rooms have modern furnishings with cream colours while DVD players, flat-screen televisions and board games will keep the children occupied. Bathrooms are sleek and attractive. If budget allows, go for a sea-facing suite containing fully-fitted kitchens with granite worktops, iPod docking stations and glass-and-steel balconies on which one can watch the sun set over the Atlantic. The dog-eared Penguin Classics are a lovely touch.
Food and Wine
The excellent restaurant offers plenty of locally-sourced fish and seafood and service is relaxed and friendly. Starters – try the hog’s pudding salad or scallop ceviche – are priced between £6 and £12, while mains – the silver mullet with crayfish mash and morels were superb – are all around the £15 mark. Breakfast and room service fare was decent, though some of the accommodation is so far from the kitchen, one must hope the waiting staff endeavour to remember everything first time around – your St Moritz burger (an absolute delight, incidentally) may get cold waiting for its relish.
The popular Cowshed spa offers treatments ranging from massage and manicures to tanning and waxing, but book well in advance. Rooms are stocked with the spa’s own-brand products.
Doubles from £140, suites from £235 (cheaper during winter months). Three-bedroom apartments are also on offer, prices vary.
