Coastal chic overlooking Bude's coolest beach – plus a vibrant bar/restaurant serving good food and great cocktails.
Summerleaze Crescent Bude Cornwall EX23 8HL 01288 389 800
If you ask a local to
direct you to the coolest bar in Bude, most of them will wave you towards The
Beach Bar. For here, killer cocktails – or, by day, simply coffee and cake –
are as much a part of the lifestyle as the sandy beach in view from its terrace.
Lucky then, that this cool and contemporary vibe has rubbed off on the New
England style rooms on offer here, where the limed oak furniture, Lloyd Loom
chairs and king-size beds all add to the stylish seaside environment – this may
be an old Victorian building but the vibe is contemporary, young and unpretentious.
It’s not the hotel to choose for a quiet romantic weekend or family holiday – although
the rooms are well soundproofed, in the evenings the bar can take over the
entire public area, and guests may feel like gatecrashers at a party they don’t
want to go to. On the other hand, if you are in the mood to socialise, you can
simply join in – no matter what age you are. The Beach does the
cool party hotel thing just perfectly.
The rooms encompass 'Classic' and 'Classic Plus' – which are very nice, with walk-in showers and sometimes baths as well, but rear-facing so no sea views – to Superior and Deluxe, which tend to be larger and have terraces or Juliet balconies and sea views. They all have vi-sprung beds and duck down duvets and pillows. They've now added a family friendly suite (opening up the hotel to families for the first time). As for the cool Beach Bar, this also serves delicious cakes, as well as those more-ish cocktails and bar food, but it you want a something more substantial, the Beach restaurant does decent food in keeping with the spirit of the place – local ale-battered hake, steak, burgers and a divine brioche of wild mushroom and smoked brie. The daily, reasonably-priced brunch menu is also great, including a wonderful eggs benedict and a mighty, hangover-blasting 'Full Cornish' and the restaurant goes from strength to strength (winning two AA Rosettes in 2017).
