Bodmin Jail Hotel

England, United Kingdom


Bodmin Jail Hotel offers a guest experience like no other. The hotel is housed in what was once an 18th Century prison, now lovingly transformed into a luxury boutique modern hotel that offers unrivalled hospitality, luxurious rooms, amazing food, and is the perfect gateway location in Cornwall.

The hotel seamlessly combines the historical design of a 250-year-old prison with the contemporary luxury you would expect from a stylish boutique hotel.

The rustic stone walls of the original prison provide a unique backdrop for the 70 bedrooms, each of which consists of three former cells merged together.

Thoughtful design and careful attention to furnishings and fittings provide modern and inviting spaces while retaining many of the building’s original features.

The fine-dining flagship restaurant, The Chapel, is the perfect setting for a special evening where you can enjoy classic cuisine and fine wines in a dramatic and atmospheric setting.

If you are looking for a pre-dinner aperitif or a late night drink, the cosy intimate Champagne Bar offers an extensive wine list and inviting cocktail menu and is the perfect space in which to unwind and relax at the end of the day.

The hotel is located at the start of the famous Camel trail and is ideal for visiting the Eden Project and the Cornwall County Showground.

It’s the perfect base for touring holidays for those looking to explore all that Cornwall has to offer.
