Enjoy a two-night stay in the 18th-century former prison that’s now a haven of style and luxury

What we love...

A brand new opening for 2021, following a complete transformation, the Bodmin Jail Hotel offers an exciting experiential stay in Cornwall. As a former prison, this fascinating hotel has an incredible history that has been preserved and showcased in luxurious style. Sensitively restored, it has been transformed from the walls of an 18th-century prison into a four-star boutique hotel and is the showpiece of a £70 million project. Ideally located in the heart of Cornwall, just a short drive will take you to both coasts, as well as Bodmin moor. This unique destination hotel fuses old with new and gives Cornish heritage a luxurious twist. The 70 bedrooms - each with their own unique story to tell - have been created by combining three former cells, retaining many authentic features.
