We went 7 years ago!!! In Feb had a lovely time, loved the listening service. Only for 2 nights. At the time New dad couldnt appreciate it but we would now. Not sure if I could do a week and for the money absolutely no way!!!
We went in September. Brilliant value. I really liked the decor. Staff and childcare fab. Meal package was good value. Worth every penny for a couple with older baby or toddler it was just so relaxing and easy.
I am from Cornwall originally, not stayed at Polurrian but have heard good things. Sands can look a bit tired in placed but it's great and cheaper than bed steps. Staff are nice, and the listening service is fab.
The decor is worrying me a bit looking at trio advisor. I know this is hardly the most important thing but we have stayed in some really nice hotels and this is still by far the most expensive; it looks a bit tired in some of the pics.
It was in school holidays. We found it better value off peak with a toddler but once dcs were older (3 of them) it felt like a complete rip off. Queuing for high tea, queue for soft play, same variation on a theme every night for dinner and mediocre child care. We didn't go back after that, I felt trapped with the sharp elbowed middle class that I was probably trying to escape from.
We went off peak. Still spent a lot (we are going abroad for a fortnight this year, for about the same price as a week at BedSteps). However, with two toddlers, honestly, it was worth every penny - we adored it. Did get an amazing weather week though, which certainly helped. Not so sure it would be the case with older children though. I asked them about the MN discount going and they said they would still be offering discounts, just in other ways. Perhaps ring reception and ask about this?
