Hotel Tresanton

Hotel Tresanton is one of the West Country's most famous hotels, situated at the edge of the unspoiled village of St. Mawes.

Originally created in the 1940s as a yachtsman's club, Tresanton is a cluster of old houses on different levels; in the 1950s and 60s it became one of the best-known and best-loved hotels in Cornwall.

In 1997 Olga Polizzi bought Tresanton and spent two years completely redesigning and restoring it. It has a casual and elegant atmosphere very much in keeping with its harbour location. The hotel is perfect as a romantic wedding venue, relaxing holiday location or luxury business and conference centre.

'If there is any more elegant hotel in Britain than Olga Polizzi's Tresanton on the Cornish Coast, then I have never been there' The Independent
