Polurrian on the Lizard – Mullion, Cornwall
Devon, Cornwall & The Isles of Scilly

It’s all change at this one-time Victorian railway hotel, standing proud on the Lizard Peninsula with stunning, unspoilt views. It not only has a new name (it used to be the Polurrian Bay Hotel), but also new interiors, new menus and a new vibe. A comprehensive refurbishment has created a fresh look and feel that’s coastal and quirky, with an emphasis on great service and relaxation. Formal dining has given way to an easy-going restaurant, serving tasty Mediterranean dishes from the finest seasonal Cornish ingredients and with a wood-fired Gozney oven for hand- stretched pizzas. Artisan drinks and enticing cocktails with a Cornish twist are perfect for sipping at the bar as the sun sets over Mount’s Bay. Coastal walks, clifftop tennis, indoor and outdoor pools and water sports will satisfy the most hyperactive of guests. There’s a private beach for sandcastle building plus yoga classes, a gym and Elemis treatments in the health club, where you can recover from the full-on activity.

Nota Bene
