Luxury Cornish hotel reopens under new ownership

Hotel Meudon near Falmouth relaunches this spring following an extensive and imaginative refurbishment

Under its new ownership, Hotel Meudon will offer a sophisticated and elegant bolthole with impeccable South West service and hospitality.

Hidden along a quiet country lane at Mawnan Smith, between Falmouth and the Helford River, Hotel Meudon is the only hotel housed within Cornish subtropical gardens. It also offers guests direct access to a private beach: Bream Cove.

The hotel was owned and operated by the Pilgrim family from the 1960s until its sale to Kingfisher Resorts in December 2020. After a historically sensitive refurbishment, the hotel, restaurant and gardens will reopen from May 17 (as per government guidelines).

The hotel’s stunning location will be echoed in stylish interiors with modern accents. Design influences from the 1960s (colour palette, geometric patterns and smooth curves and edges) will be incorporated to celebrate the heritage of the hotel, offset with a light, bright, comfortable vibe.

There’s a new lounge, complete with open fireplace and views across the gardens, a stylish cocktail bar and an elegant restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows framing the garden views. A tranquil treatment room provides space for ultimate relaxation.

The 29 bedrooms have been redesigned to include 22 standard Garden View Rooms (10 with balcony or terrace), four Sea View Rooms with balcony, two Garden View Suites with lounge area and a Large Sea View Suite, as well as an Inland Facing Suite with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a balcony.

The aspirational Cornish setting will be reflected in the food and drink served by executive head chef Darren Kerley and team: fresh fish and seafood, locally farmed meats, seasonal game, and fruit and veg grown in the Meudon garden.

Rooms cost from £119 per night on a bed and breakfast basis.
