The Lamorna Cove Hotel

Aparthotel in Penwith Peninsula

Uphill from the cove sits this complex of self-contained holiday apartments. They're pleasantly converted and quite contemporary, with the essential laminate floors, coastal colour schemes, minimalist bathrooms and a nice pool. Views are variable; our pick is ground-floor apartment 4, with its double-aspect views, and cosy sea-view apartment 7 on the 1st floor. Given the location, it's pretty great value.

It's important to note that this is a self-catering place though, so don't expect hotel service – staff knock off at night.
