Hotel Tresanton, St. Mawes, Cornwall  Monday 2nd December - Friday 6th December 2024

Our Top Tip

The most beautiful hotel in all seasons - book a room with a sea view!

Hotel Tresanton

St Mawes invigorates you with its fresh sea air, warm micro-climate and a clarity of light cherished by visiting artists. This is probably the smartest hotel in Cornwall, not because of formality or grandeur (in fact, quite the opposite), but because of how it makes you feel - wonderful! A former yachting club, the hotel was fashioned from a cluster of old houses in the 1950s, hence its higgledy-piggledy levels. Step forward Olga Polizzi in 1999, and Tresanton was transformed into the Cornish equivalent of a chic and sprawling Greek villa, full of mood-lit nooks and characterful rooms. There are fantastic views throughout the hotel across the sheltered bay to St Anthony’s lighthouse and the rolling hills of the Roseland peninsula.. Click here to see the hotel website.

We first came here in 2018 and had the most fabulous stay. Everything about Tresanton was perfect from the friendly and helpful staff, glorious views, beautifully decorated and comfortable rooms including a great bridge room and the most delicious food. Our favourite UK hotel!

‘‘If there is any more elegant hotel in Britain than Olga Polizzi’s Tresanton, then I have never been there’ - The Independent


Tresanton has 31 bedrooms spread out over a cluster of five houses on the hillside: the Main House, Upper Tresanton, Lower Tresanton, Nook and Rock Cottage. All but 3 of the rooms have magnificent sea views, eleven have terraces and all have been individually and beautifully furnished with antiques and Cornish art. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms with Ren toiletries - some with baths, some with showers and some both. Most rooms can be double or twinned. There are also two 2-bedroom suites. Please note that the hotel does not have a lift and being on a hill, there are steps linking the different levels and houses of the hotel.

Delicious food in the 3-rosette restaurant
