Thank you for such a lovely review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, weather permitting it is lovely to sleep with the window open and listen to the sound of the sea below. Newquay has something to offer whatever the time of year, but I particularly like the spring months when it is quieter but...

This hotel has its own private parking (an extra 5 pounds a night) and it is well-located near the shops and beach. The views from our room (one of their best, 70 pound a night) are gorgeous. The restaurant is casual, part of their bar and coffee house, but when you sit near the window and watch the changing sky...

I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. As this is an older building our rooms vary in size and their view, with the road facing rooms being particularly good value if you are looking for a base from which to explore the local area.
