What the press say about The Nare

Inside Kent | 1 May 2012

If you’re looking for a hotel with some quintessential charm, The Nare, based in National Trust land, is a fantastic choice…It is a typical country house hotel with a luxurious twist, where both rooms and suites coupled with a sea view are available.

Gill Charlton, The Telegraph | 7 April 2012

A bastion of tradition (think jackets and ties, afternoon tea and silver service)…This is the AA’s highest-rated four-star hotel in Cornwall.

The Times, 30 Best Beach Hotels | 3 March 2012

The family-owned Nare, overlooking the almost perfect sandy beach at Roseland, has retained consistently high standards for more than a decade

Elinor Shields, Mumsnet | 20 February 2012

If the Cornish coast is your thing, you won’t find a more magical spot than The Nare.

Robin Page, The Lady | 3 February 2012

So the other day I was relaxing in the old-fashioned luxury of The Nare Hotel between Falmouth and St Austell, in Cornwall -a hotel with comfort, service and civility.

Paul Bradley, Birmingham Post | 5 January 2012

The attentive staff not only knew who we were without us having to introduce ourselves but they also genuinely seemed to have a personal desire to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible.

Vikki Shennan, Instyle | 11 November 2011

With 32 sea-facing rooms, you won’t be short of stunning views, while décor is in keeping with the hotel’s traditional, relaxed country-home style… More info

Guy Whitmore, Countryside Magazine | 1 September 2011

"With four red-stars, the hotel is luxurious yet relaxing, with views over a neighbouring beach and coastline.  Those looking to enjoy the stunning scenery can access the South West Coast Path, however, those who want to take it easy can enjoy the Carne Bay Spa." More info

Oliver Berry, Lonely Planet | 1 August 2011

"This plush hotel overlooking Carne Beach prides itself on its old-fashioned values: round-the-clock room service, croquet on the lawn and afternoon tea served on bone-china crockery.  The 36 rooms range from small boltholes to full-blown suites; you'll definitely want one with a sea view."

Ian Wilkinson, Cornwall Life | 1 August 2011

"Between the two beaches you will find the Nare Hotel, one of Cornwall's finest.  If you are walking the path and your timing is right, lunch at the hotel's Quarterdeck restaurant overlooking Gerran's Bay is a must!" More info

Fiona Duncan, The Sunday Telegraph | 22 May 2011

"We have our own deck overlooking the shining sea and the sound of waves soothes the soul.  No bothersome advance booking is required for the hotel's activities: in fact Toby likes nothing better than to suggest a sail that day in his Cornish Crabber, a picnic stowed, or to visit some of the many fine gardens in the area.  Any children present are usually part of multi-generational family gatherings.  Dogs have their own a la carte menus.  Guests who can no longer drive are offered a chaffeur service from their door, wherever that door be."

Daily Mail | 1 January 2011

Roger Norum, Cara Magazine | 17 September 2010

“I spent an afternoon with native hotelier Toby Ashworth, jaunting around in his Land Rover exploring the south coasts bewitching Roseland peninsula. Toby’s hotel, The Nare, enjoys a postcard perfect setting over Carne Beach and an atmosphere rife with nostalgia. Little surprise that it has reigned as Cornwall’s top hotel for 15 years running.”

Charles Starmer-Smith, The Telegraph | 15 September 2010

“Anyone looking for the leisure facilities offered by a more traditional country house hotel, the Nare Hotel will happily oblige.”
