“Five star treatment - and it's all down to the staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2011

Over the years, I've stayed in some very well regarded hotels - including many of the greats in the world's capitals. Very few of them offer the welcome and attention to detail that the Edgcumbe provides as standard.

It's run by a family with a truly professional attitude combined with tremendous warmth.
The rooms are simple: comfortably furnished with great beds and very clean.

Rooms at the front have a fantastic view of the beach.

Breakfast is relaxed. A great choice of fruit etc plus a full English if required - including vegetarian choices.

It's comfortable, clean and fantastic value. It's got great food, great people and great views. It's got free WiFi.

Along with TerraVina in the New Forest, it's one of my two favourite UK hotels (but the Edgcumbe is just one fifth of the cost of the New Forest place...)

I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the Edgcumbe.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the beach is a bonus.

I recently went to a guitar retreat (www.guitar-retreats.co.uk) in Bude, Cornwall, which was excellent. The venue for the guitar retreat was The Edgcumbe, a small family run hotel right overlooking Summerleaze Beach in Bude. What a place! I really enjoyed my stay and will definitely return. The staff were great and the hospitality, room comfort, food and venue were all excellent - way better than I expected. I would highly recommend this family run hotel to anyone visiting Bude.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view if you can!

Set in a wonderful position overlooking Bude, and offering breakfast (great choice!) and comfort as good as any, this is one we really would like to go back to. Run with efficiency, friendliness and professionalism by 5 members of the same extended family who take every step to ensure that clients enjoy their stay and in a very relaxed and informal way. An added bonus was the mere 5 minute walk to an excellent meal at "Life's a Beach".

Room Tip: Have a sea view room if possible!

Stayed at the edgcumbe hotel for two nights in a room overlooking Summerleaze Beach. The room was beautifully decorated and accessorised in the fashion of a beach house. The family members running the hotel were exceptionally friendly with loads of good advice as to where to eat in the evenings and good places to visit in the area. The breakfasts were delicious with lots of choice. Stay here again? You bet!.

Room Tip: Try and get a sea view room.

The Edgcumbe is a great place. The whole hotel is beautifully decorated, the breakfast was excellent and the hosts were very friendly. There seemed to be lots of people staying who had stayed before which is always a good sign.

The only thing they need to sort out are the doors! Getting in to the hotel at night is not easy as the lock is really difficult and the hotel is in a very windy spot so doors slam quite a bit. The door to our room rattled all night in the wind ( we had to open the window a little as the room was warm). We came so close to asking to be moved but in the end made a make-shift door stop.

Despite this we would still strongly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Bude.

Stayed here after getting the details from Bude tourist info. And what a find it was! The staff here make this place special they all make you feel so welcome and are helpful and friendly in all aspects of a stay in Bude.
Breakfast is fab, with a choice of fresh fruits and cereals to start followed by toast and choices of cooked breakfast (veggie and lighter options also available), the bar was opened throughout the day for coffee etc this later progressed to karge G and T's as the day went on.... Would thoroughly recommend this comfortable well placed guesthouse for a stay in Bude!

Great spot overlooking the coast, cliffs and town and an easy walk to town centre and 2 great surfing beaches.
