A weekend at The St Moritz Hotel in on the Atlantic coast North Cornwall…..near the “upscale” village of “Rock” !
The St Moritz Hotel is a trendy modern 4* “art deco” design with regular rooms and one or two bedroom suites with fully kitchens and dining facilities as well as pool, spa and gym.
The restaurant kitchen is fully open on view and its fascinating to see the Chefs working at 100mph as well as their huge attention to detail. More essentially the food is absolutely fantastic…..not cheap but then you get what you pay for. I started with the Fish Chowder which was a meal in itself. Every time I visit Boston I visit “Legal Seafoods” for their fantastic chowder but trust me, this is even better!
The entree I had the fillet of Lamb Naverine which was SO good – tender pink chunks of lamb! Drank water, not wine !
Saturday morning breakfast started with a table buffet of cereals and fruits followed by a continental or “English” breakfast with various combinations – nothing but the “fukk English” would satisfy me !
Nearby, the village of Rock has been referred to as ‘Britain’s Saint-Tropez’and the ‘Kensington of Cornwall’ due to its popularity with the very affluent and upper-class holiday-makers, including the third in the line of succession to the British Throne, Prince Harry and what the Daily Telegraph calls ‘Hooray Henrys’.
Popular names such as Hugh Grant and Jemima Khan, the Rothschilds, the Sainsburys, the Freuds, the Al Fayeds,and Harry Enfield have also holidayed here.
What I like about this place is that while everything seems to work like clockwork, the staff are warm and welcoming. I’m very glad I came back as the last time I was here was literally the first weekend they had re-opened after some major rebuilding and there were a few “issues”. This time it was perfect and we will definitely be back.
What is more, is I will definitely recommend the St Moritz Hotel to my discerning Customers in North America !
