The Best Destination in the Duchy

How many hotels in Cornwall (let alone the UK), can say they have their own beach and cove on the doorstep and seven acres of land to explore? Our luxury boutique hotel is located on the Roseland Peninsula, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, mecca for nature lovers, a must for culture lovers and a walker’s paradise.

There’s plenty to choose from in our neck of the woods. For those seeking thrills – try your hand at kayaking, coasteering or surfing. For those wanting adventures, hike the South West Coast Path or simply free yourself in the Cornish countryside and for those who want to make lasting memories, immerse yourself in Cornish culture, entertainment and events. Watching the Red Arrows from the headland at St Mawes takes a lot of beating!

Relax with us

And if you’re looking to take relaxation to the next level, book a pampering session. We can organise beauty treatments for you, simply ask our friendly team.

The Driftwood hotel is privately owned by Paul and Fiona Robinson with the chef, Olly Pierrepoint, also having an interest in the business. The Robinsons purchased the hotel in 2002, then known as the Roseland House Hotel, and developed it into the award-winning boutique hotel and fine dining restaurant it is today, considered amongst the very best hotels in Cornwall.
