WHAT’S IT LIKE? An elegant Georgian town-house transformed into a modern and luxurious hotel.
There’s a fine fusion of traditional touches and contemporary style – antique chairs and grandfather clocks blend easily with contemporary artwork and painted white floorboards. It’s a stone’s throw from the seafront.
ROOMS ANY GOOD? Very. The six in the main house are all individually styled, with plenty of natural light and luxurious touches – freestanding baths, modern wood-burners and sleek ensuite bath-rooms kitted out with natural soaps made by Pure Nuff Stuff, a shop just down the road. Across the courtyard are two newer suites with handmade kitchens and harbour views. EAT
THERE OR GRAB A PIZZA? Dinner is Friday and Saturday evenings only and is a laidback joy. If you’re visiting midweek, worry not – there are some great dining options nearby. I can recommend the roasted sea bass at The Cornish Barn, for £18. Back at Chapel House, breakfast is divine – owner Susan whizzes up fresh juices and cooks to order.
WHAT ELSE? The hotel is perfect for exploring local galleries and shops, or the tidal isle of St Michael’s Mount, a ten-minute drive away. You’re also just a 20-minute drive from St Ives. SO
YOU’D GO BACK? In a flash – for a stay that feels luxurious without being stuffy.
