Pickwick rooms with a view


The Pickwick Inn & Oliver’s Restaurant has officially opened its new £500k accommodation development.

Visit Cornwall chief executive, Malcolm Bell, was on hand to cut the ribbon on the opening of nine new luxury bedrooms, at the St Issey-based pub and restaurant, near Padstow.

Other guests at the event included David and Kevin Derry of Gynn Construction, who built the half million pound development, designed by architect Jon Hughes.

Bell said: “It was an honour to be able to open such high quality rooms with exceptional attention to detail combined with absolutely stunning views down the Camel Estuary to the sea – the rooms matched the setting and I am 100% confident they will delight customers for years, if not decades to come.”

Proprietor Eddie Stanton was full of praise for the local companies involved in the project.

He said: “It’s been a stressful few months but seeing the rooms finished, we realise it’s all been worth it.

“I’m so grateful to the numerous firms, almost all from within a ten-mile radius, which have helped us create these fantastic rooms, I just can’t fault their workmanship and professionalism.
