Award winning hospitality

Proud to be Cornwall’s first double 5-star destination

Everything we do at The Headland is to the highest standards. 2020 has been a turbulent year amidst closures and lockdowns but in October, we were prestigiously voted by the readers of the The Times and Sunday Times to be the  Best Seaside Hotel. The awards haven’t stopped there as we won Best Hotel for Families and were runners up for Best Beach/Coastal Hotel by Luxury Traveller Magazine.  In 2019, we attained 5-star status with both the AA and with Quality in Tourism. The Headland Spa was the first spa in the region to achieve the highly coveted ‘five-bubble’ award from The Good Spa Guide (in its opening year) and has proudly maintained that rating ever since.
