With all the fuss over the Midland Hotel, it’s easy to forget that there are other stylish retreats in the UK – like St Moritz hotel in Cornwall.
This art deco-styled hotel was originally a luxurious private house, but after the war it became a luxury hotel noted for its high-end food. he latest re-incarnation offers much the same, but beneath that deco-esque facade is a more modern holiday experience, with modern rooms packing flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, hair straighteners and plenty of other luxuries.
There’s also a choice of hotel room or apartment, a leisure club, spa and p,enty of great scenery all around. Prices start at £95 out of season for a room.
