    The Bodmin Jail Hotel is the epitome of luxury, history, Cornwall.

    Exceptional. Beautiful historic building, thoughtfully and carefully renovated. Stunning room with equally lovely bathroom and underfloor heating! All the staff we encountered were really lovely - particularly Callum in the Chapel restaurant who went above and beyond to make our evening extra special. The food is to die for and there are lots of interesting choices to pick from. We weren't rushed at all, but equally didn't feel that we had to wait for any of the courses. All in all, we had the most fantastic trip to Bodmin Jail and will definitely be back.
