UK: Set on a clifftop in Cornwall, Talland Bay Hotel has revealed an extension to the 16th century building that’s created two additional rooms, along with a bungalow at the rear of the property.
Renovations at Talland Bay were first announced in February, however the planned addition of the new suites was delayed due to the first UK lockdown. The extension was completed in late July.
The ground floor superior suite (Room 18) comes with double French doors and private patio, a 32” smart TV with Netflix, large en suite bathroom with a bath and separate wheelchair accessible shower, mini fridge, Nespresso machine and milk steamer.
The first-floor premier suite (Room 20) comes with a private staircase and entry/exit, French doors to a private balcony with a two-person hot tub and lounger, super king-sized bed, mini kitchen butchers’ block with wine fridge, Nespresso machine and milk steamer, 32” TV with Netflix, and an en suite bathroom with free standing bath for two and a walk in shower
Guests can now also book the Bungalow – a self-contained, self-catering option with the hotel facilities and restaurant on tap. It features an open-plan lounge and kitchen plus two en suite bedrooms, a cinematic projector and 38” TV, and an enclosed garden and central courtyard.
Deputy manager Lucy Varney said: “Guests have been booking superior sea view rooms more than any other category. They want the bigger rooms and the luxury of a sea view, and are booking the full dinner, bed and breakfast package. Holidaymakers are looking for high-end hotels and to be indulged.”
As well as initial demand for stays between three and seven nights during July and August, the hotel saw a surge in bookings for mid-September through to late October.
