Hotel Tresanton

At the tip of the untouched Roseland peninsula, in the picturesque village of St. Mawes, with stunning views across the sea, Hotel Tresanton is one of the English West Countries most famous hotels. Built originally in the 1940s as a yachtsman’s club, the hotel was bought and restored in 1997 by famous interior designer and hotelier, Olga Polizzi.


Cornwall is renowned for its rugged coastline, small harbours and fishing villages and its particular light has always inspired artists in the past. The beauty of Cornwall, the nearby town St. Ivy and the tidal island of St. Michael’s Mount make Hotel Tresanton a perfect hideaway to discover the history, art and culture of England’s south-western region.

Rooms & Suites

The style is an eclectic blend of old and modern, reviving the casual but elegant atmosphere of a seaside retreat. All 30 rooms, some with their own terrace, have been individually furnished with antiques and Cornish art and overlook Falmouth bay, one of the best sailing areas in England.

Restaurant & Bars

The restaurant, well known for its local produce, including freshly caught seafood and crustaceans, is bright and airy with terraces overlooking the sea. In addition to its cosy bar with a nautical feel, the hotel has a spacious lounge with log burning fire, a private cinema, a playroom and a children's garden with its own Wendy house. Pinuccia, the hotel's 50ft classic yacht built in 1938, is available for charters with crew, picnic and champagne!
