London Unattached

The team at London Unattached nominated their top boutique hotels across the UK, and ours was in the top seven favourites. Kay Woolley stayed with us for one night in October and said ‘Bude is another North Cornish town which is following in the footsteps of Padstow and Wadebridge with refurbished hotels, shops and other facilities making it an ideal base from which to explore the whole area.’

She also particularly enjoyed the food and restaurant, adding that ‘the menu makes good use of the fresh produce available in Cornwall. I chose to drink the Sauvignon Blanc which perfectly complemented the food. Each dish was tasty and beautifully presented, the service was good without being overly attentive.’

The Daily Telegraph

Our hotel was featured in the Daily Telegraph in February of 2017 in a round up of it’s favourite luxury hotels in Cornwall, The Cream of The Crop. Of our hotel, it said: ‘the vibe is contemporary, young and unpretentious, though its a hotel enjoyed by folk of all ages. Rooms are flooded with dazzling north Cornwall light – at least on sunny days – and contain big baths perfect for warming up after a swim or surf.’



We were featured in Prima magazine’s 2017 Holiday Hot List, and our hotel described as a ‘gorgeous boutique bolthole, which overlooks Summerleaze Beach and has 16 beautiful rooms’.

Red Magazine

Our hotel was included in Red magazine’s 20 Of The Best Boutique Beach Hotels In Europe, and we were thrilled to read such a positive review of our hotel and restaurant: ‘soothing bedrooms are decked out in a New England style and many look out to sea. Joe Simmonds heads up the restaurant with dishes like seared king scallops and butter and tarragon poached hake fillet’.

Country & Town House

We were featured in Country & Town House’s Great British Hotels, with the comment ‘the hottest of Cornish hotspots, The Beach at Bude is a skilfully updated Victorian house, retaining its original character, but with decoration that feels fresh and modern and looks the epitome of seaside chic. The groovy Beach Bar positively hums at weekends, with its inventive cocktail menu and summer terrace drawing a young crowd.’

The Sunday Times

In October we were delighted to be included in The Sunday Times 100 Great British Hotels list with a brilliant write up: “The Beach’s terrace is Cornwall at its most photogenic, packed with beautiful young things in floaty slip dresses and Orlebar Brown leisurewear, accessorised with Ray-Bans and Cornish mules. (That’s a vodka-based cocktail, by the way.) Even this crowd isn’t nearly as cool as the view: it takes in one of the best beaches in Britain, Summerleaze, with a tidal pool and rows of pastel huts.”

Olive Magazine

Our brilliant head chef Joe Simmonds was recognised as one to watch for 2018 by Olive Magazine, contributing to getting Bude to be more widely recognised as a foodie destination and ‘drawing a crowd’ to our AA awarded restaurant.
