One of the World's Top Nine Secret Hotels - CNN January 2011 (Frommers)

With breath-taking views across the bay to St Michael's Mount, The Mount Haven feels simultaneously luxurious yet relaxed. An unusual East-meets-West blend in West Cornwall. An intimate boutique hotel with amazing food, views and rooms. The terrace is the perfect place to kick back and relax over lunch or watch the sunset whilst sipping an aperitif and browsing through the inspiring and forward-thinking menu. Personal service, luxury accommodation and large private balconies with amazing views across the sea to St Michael's Mount provide the perfect place to just lie back and chill out. A team of dedicated holistic therapists are available to massage away the deepest tension.

The Mount Haven's crowning glory is its fabulous award-winning restaurant. Head Chef James Morris has been awarded 2 AA rosettes for fine dining and goes to great lengths to create amazing dishes sourced from the very best of the local suppliers in West Cornwall. Classic dishes work in harmony with the season and locally sourced food is enhanced by modern techniques produced by a young, talented team. The wine list strays off the beaten track to offer something a bit different from around the world while not neglecting good value favourites.

Nestling into cliffs just 400 yards from the little town of Marazion, Mount Haven is in the perfect location to visit the beautiful expanses of golden beaches that the Far West Peninsula specialises in. The walks along the spectacular cliffs and valleys, the wild-life, incredible sub-tropical gardens, National Trust stately homes, the incredibe Minack Theatre open to the elements at Porthcurno beach, neolithic villages, stone circles, wild-life safaris, surfing, fishing, golf - whatever your preferences - West Cornwall is wild and wonderful and waiting to be explored. Or you just might ljust decide to lie back and and just enjoy the view.

The Mount Haven has a large free car park for guests so there's none of the usual hassle of trying to park the car.
