St Moritz Hotel

Relax… it’s a room at the St. Moritz

St Moritz Hotel is an art-deco inspired luxury hotel in Cornwall, overlooking the stunning Daymer Bay near Rock, providing the perfect setting for the ultimate seaside break.

Since the 1930s, thousands of people have made an annual pilgrimage to this particular piece of the North Cornwall coast for that much needed escape from the daily stresses of urban life. Today is no different, with an acclaimed Cowshed spa, award-winning cuisine and breathtaking scenery, your stylish Cornwall hotel break is right here.

With every detail of the hotel, they have dedicated themselves completely to your comfort, indulgence and enjoyment.

These luxury hotel rooms are beautiful cocoons into which you’ll want to sink and stay. Amongst the handcrafted beds and furniture you’ll discover in-built flat screen TVs, iPod docking stations, hair straighteners and big bottles bursting with Cowshed goodies.

The original, imposing private house belonged to a couple called the Underwoods who, after the war, reinvented it as a luxurious hotel. On his trips to St Moritz, Richard Underwood found a commitment matching his for haute cuisine, excellent service and attention to detail, and named the hotel after the Swiss town.

The St Moritz became truly international. Its chefs learned their trade in Switzerland and the excellence they brought back – and on which the Underwoods insisted throughout – saw its reputation soar. Politicians, film stars, business leaders and writers were drawn to the spectacular coast but, most of all, to the hotel’s celebrated levels of service. The Underwoods might no longer be with us, but the new St Moritz is a fitting tribute to their vision.
