Spa Break including Dinner and Breakfast. Dinner menu and quality of food excellent. Breakfast buffet excellent however on both mornings the cooked menu order off the menu was not very hot. I presume cooked foods were kept warm however not sufficiently.

After booking a surprise weekend for my partners 40th we were looking forward to 2 nights of breakfast and dinner at the Dune Restaurant. However we were left extremely disappointed. Dining on our first night resulted with a 40 minute wait for a starter... Luke warm soup and fishcakes. It took another 2 hours from the moment we finished this for our deserts to arrive, some 2 hrs 30 after we had arrived for our reservation at 7.30. The restaurant was not busy and out of their perhaps 20 tables there were a few dtill empty. Michelin star restaurants provide quicker service then this on a busy night! There wasn't even an apology or explanation. The ambience was somewhat flat with a lot of people were asking about the delay on food. Though we were given prosecco at the end of our dining, it was perhaps a little too late. We weren't made to feel special, and didn't experience the fine dining a 4 star hotel and restaurant claims. The food was OK, and the wait I'm afraid added to the disappointment. Breakfast the following day was a disgrace. The cooked breakfast was cold, shrivelled tomatoes, soggy hash brown, 1 dried slice of bacon and a tea spoon of beans, not freshly cooked. I've eaten better at a weatherspoons! A restaurant that claims its passionate about food and dedication to fine dining, skills and knowledge did not result in a menu and a dining experience which reflected the hotels fantastic write up. Sadly it did put a damper on our 1st night and overall experience in total. However we would very much come back to the hotel as our overnight stay was amazing (bar that) even down to the little things like balloons in the room, upgrade and all round wonderful experience. The facilities were 2nd to none. Sadly our restaurant experience did not match this and on our 2nd night we did go to the town for dinner. We did not have breakfast the following day either at the hotel. Whilst we did get a refund on our 2nd night dining, the experience already received we felt was not compensated for. The manager that we spoke to was very considerate to our views and apologetic and did her best to try to get us to stay, however champagne (which we don't drink) and a spa treatment (we had already had as part of our package) wasnt what we wanted as the damage was already done. We would love to come back to the hotel and would recommend anyone staying there, however we'd definitely be telling people to stay only and not dine as part of a package or even eat there and not stay. Perhaps one day we can come back to the restaurant to have our views amended maybe then we feel it would be worth the 4 star title it apparently claims it has.

The muscles were delicious! Probably the tastiest I have eaten. The rump of lamb was cooked to perfection and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, which was a made even better by the prompt and professional service we received. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

it was all good, the food was delicious, we had booked the 'meal deal' in response to the email so the price was very good, the staff were helpful and attentive and, of course, the view of beach was 'to die for'.

Ein schönes Hotel mit tollem Blick auf Fistral Beach. Man sollte unbedingt ein Zimmer mir Meerblick buchen.

The staff at the Dune Restaurant were excellent very attentive and nothing was to much trouble for them. I should of spoke up at the time as the Scones were hard/stale possibly? A little disappointing at the view as long curtains at the window where we sat blocked the view . make sure when you book ask for center window table to be reserved for you if you'd like to enjoy the view. apart from the scones the afternoon tea was Delicious.

Absolutely incredible food. Honestly some of the best food I’ve tasted in a long time. I’m already itching to go back and we only left today!! The three course evening meal was fantastic from start to finish. For the starter, I had the fish cakes (I’m not usually a massive fan, but you could tell they were hand made and full of fish) and the chilli jam was lovely to accompany. My partner had the arancini and said it was really yummy. For the main, I had the chicken breast with dauphinoise potatoes kale and sweet corn purée (which was amazing) and my partner had the steak. Both were again, incredible. For pudding, I had the white chocolate cheesecake with banana parfait, which was to die for. My partner had the sticky toffee pudding and said it was unreal. You have to go to the dune restaurant if you get the chance. You’d be missing out if not!

Service of young girl was dreadful. She didn’t know what she was doing and therefore spoilt the whole experience. Her vocabulary was non existent and also after ringing for the special deal of £29 we were charged the full £40. Not easy to check bill on checkout. Paying £282 per room I expect I high standard of service and unfortunately this fell very short of what I would expect.
