Outstanding October Feedback!

Thank you so much to our visitors for some wonderful comments on our location, our staff and our restaurant. It makes such a difference to the team to hear your views.

“Absolutely stunning estate”

I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay somewhere unique with outstanding views and walks.

“Brilliant location, sea views”

We came on the £115 for 2 nights deal and had a brilliant time. Amazing views, great location, nice clean hotel.

“Peaceful break”

This Hotel has one of the most beautiful views from a hotel room that I have ever experienced, overlooking St Ives Bay. The staff were extremely helpful and polite and the food was second to none.

“St Ives heaven”

My partner took me on a romantic surprise trip to St Ives for a few days and he booked Tregenna Castle. What a beautiful place!

The service of all the staff was impeccable, the room was great and the food at breakfast and for an evening meal was gorgeous. I would recommend this place to anyone as they have large rooms for families, cottages and chalets to stay in.

The gym facilities were also very good and the grounds were beautiful.

“Fantastic meal at Tregenna – so impressed!”

We were waited on hand and foot, nothing was too much trouble and food was fantastic. View out of the window next to us was the gorgeous ocean and pretty plants. Restaurant decor was very modern and stylish. Only downside? Too many items on the menu that we wanted to eat! Perfect excuse to go back time and time again :-)

“Helpful and polite”

We have always found the staff to be very helpful and polite in and around the hotel. I would have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel as a place to stay.

Romance is Golden at Tregenna Castle Hotel

Tregenna Castle Hotel hosted a special lunch on Tuesday 18th October, to celebrate the golden wedding anniversary of Mr and Mrs Geoff Kitchen, who held their reception at the Castle in 1961.

Paying attention to every detail, Head Chef Scott Young recreated the original menu for the 23 guests. Back in 1961, the wedding lunch for 70 cost 10’6 and Tregenna has decided to honour the fee by charging just £10.60 for the whole lunch.

Tregenna has also provided a complimentary room for their special night as well as a bottle of champagne and a bouquet of fresh flowers to celebrate the 50 year milestone.

The couple are delighted to be spending their golden anniversary at Tregenna Castle, having frequented the hotel many times over the years celebrating events such as their son’s wedding reception and Mrs Kitchen’s parents’ 25th Wedding Anniversary:

“Our wedding day was the most special day of our lives and it’s so wonderful to recreate the magic of it all. We have such fond memories for Tregenna, which has played a big part in our lives over the years, and it’s so wonderful to be back.”

Sheila Barker, the hotel’s General Manager, says that the whole team has enjoyed giving the couple such a treat.

“To reach a golden wedding anniversary is such an achievement and helping them to celebrate their romance has charmed the whole team! Many couples get married here these days and it’s wonderful to think that they will enjoy their lives together as much as Mr and Mrs Kitchen have.”

Tregenna Castle Hotel and its 72 acre estate overlooking St Ives Bay is licensed for weddings both inside and out on the lawn, offering couples the opportunity to marry indoors or outdoors, providing a fairytale location for that special day.
