Harbour Hotels welcomes its third Cornish property, with the opening of the new Padstow Harbour Hotel on March 22nd. The newly renovated Victorian hotel perches above the small fishing port of Padstow – a harbour town famous for seafood, ranking as one of Cornwall’s most charismatic and atmospheric destinations.
Introducing its signature style and design-led ethos, alongside award-winning facilities, the 58 bedroom hotel features stylish new décor and relaxed all-day dining; all with postcard-perfect views of the Camel Estuary and Padstow Harbour.
For eating and drinking, the hotel’s Kitchen, Bar & Terrace offers casual, all-day dining – with those enviable views, and al fresco terrace dining. Food is light, seasonal, and locally-sourced, to showcase the region’s flavours.
The menu also features many of Harbour Hotels’ signature dishes, including the Harbour fish pie, sensational seafood burger, tempura prawns, home-cured smoked salmon and divine desserts.
There’s an extensive drinks menu, featuring eclectic wines, in-house exclusive cocktails, local craft beers and a selection of locally-made gins; perfect for sipping on the terrace, whilst drinking in the view.
For those wanting to get outdoors and enjoy this wonderful corner of Cornwall, there are fishing and pleasure boating trips, outstanding cycling along the Camel Valley Trail, and surfing at some of Europe’s best surf beaches (with surf schools), all close by.
Padstow’s town has fascinating shops and upmarket boutiques mixed in with excellent cafes and restaurants. For hikers, the town sits on the famous South West Coast Path. Also don’t miss the National Lobster Hatchery, which provides visitors a fascinating insight into the hard work required to keep up a sustainable lobster population in Cornwall. On request, the hotel can even prepare a sumptuous picnic to take with you, or arrange bike hire.
