I've used The Bristol on a few occasions for short term business trips. Like most hotels in Newquay, it is a bit dated. But all the rooms do have all you need, comfortable bed, tea/coffee, good wifi etc. Rooms do need updating as does the public rooms. Excellent breakfast, order what you want. All staff are more than helpful.

A nice older type of seaside classic hotel. Very welcoming and well presented staff Great food and great bar Excellent location for nice long walks outside Newquay. Car parking good. Lots of interesting events go on at this hotel Game preservation meeting, Murder mystery weekends and so on. Well worth a visit

Ok.... This is not a modern hotel but it oozes charm as a classic English holiday hotel. The carpets may be threadbare in places but the service from all of the staff and the quality of the food could not be faulted. Excellent !!!

Sometimes I wonder how a property ends up with such a high TripAdvisor rating and the Hotel Bristol is one of those cases. The hotel was probably fairly grand 30-40 years ago, but it is pretty run down today, with depressing rooms and hallways. The location is good, right on the seafront with lovely views. Parking is easy and free....

Thanks for your review. Many valid points expressed which I would be foolish to challenge. We have always re-invested as much as possible but you will be pleased to know that we will be accelerating that process with a major refurbishment programme commencing this autumn. At least 16 bedrooms will be revitalised by the spring plus some of our public...

My sisters and I were fortunate enough to win Sunday lunch for two ( which was donated by the hotel ) at a charity ball. The three course lunch was beautifully presented as well as being very tasty, the staff polite and attentive. We were lucky to have been given a table next to the window so had a wonderful...

While the hotel itself is a bit tired and needs to upgraded, it is in a good location with views of beach and surfers directly across the street. The one thing that really impressed us was that we forgot an item in the room and realized it after checking out. We called the hotel to ask if they had found...

Cannot really fault the hotel, the staff were really friendly and helpful, the food was great, the service excellent. My only gripe was that the room we stayed in (great view overlooking the bay) was a bit tires an '70's emulsioned artex on the walls, but this did not deter the great 6 days we had there

Lovely old building but like a lot of seaside hotels a little worn at the edges. However having said that the welcome was friendly staff smart and polite lovely breakfast each morning. The restaurant looked a little pricey but the bar meals with a glass of wine thrown in were very good value. Didn't use the pool although it was...
