Marazion Hotel, Cornwall
The unassuming façade of the Marazion Hotel is reminiscent of its ancient Cornish past where it originally started out as an 18th-century coaching inn. But step inside to discover an elegant lounge, sleek restaurant and coastal inspired bedrooms with views over one of the most iconic sights in the whole of Cornwall – St Michael’s Mount. Just a pebble’s throw from Marazion Beach, this boutique hotel has so much to write home about, it’s unlikely it would fit on the back of a postcard!
Food and Drink
Imagine lingering over a traditional, Cornish cream tea by the fireside in the wood-panelled lounge or tucking into hearty dishes that are made with love and inspired by the seasons. In the Cutty Sark Restaurant dining is not just about great food but also the relaxed atmosphere that gently persuades you to kick back and savour every moment of your culinary experience. Or why not take things outside into the garden for some al fresco dining on the coast.
Stylishly dressed but minus the fuss, rooms at The Marazion Hotel are influenced by the coastal setting with calming accents in various shades of blue. Head for the Sea View rooms where you can awake to scenes of St Michael’s Mount lapped by turquoise waters. No stone has been left unturned when it comes to the décor and facilities and a choice of a cooked or continental breakfast in the morning is the perfect way to start your day exploring the local area.
Out and About
The historic market town of Marazion is brimming with galleries, gift shops and cosy pavement cafes where you can mingle with the locals and grab an afternoon coffee. Alternatively, hit the beach and try your hand at kitesurfing or paddleboarding. A trip to St Michael’s Mount via the cobblestone causeway or ferry should most definitely be on the cards if you want to delve into the myths and legends that course through the ancient castle walls. You can also explore the fabulous sub-tropical gardens and soak up the spectacular views out to sea.
