Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I visited the Sandy Lodge for a friends wedding. The wedding was amazing, the hotel was the perfect location and put on a great experience from the catering to the multiple function rooms in which we could move between for the different stages of the day, The only thing to let the day down was the weather for the short walk over to Tolcarne beach for some photos. The venue made up for this with a modern, airy and spacious dining area which also doubled for the wedding ceremony and the great live music and entertainment in the evening that packed out the dance floor. The staff were friendly and efficient throughout and the fluidity was seamless.

Had the best time away with friends. Staff are welcoming, helpful and very friendly. Breakfast is sooo good. Massive buffet and cooked to perfection. The hotel is closed to the sea and there's a massive selection of great restaurants around. We as a group had the best time away. Lovely clean rooms. I highly recommend xxxx

This was our first time in Newquay and although the weather wasn’t brilliant for the week, the hotel was. The hotel is a 10 minute walk away from the town centre and close to the beaches so everything you need is nearby and there’s also a Tesco Express just round the corner, so if you want any essentials you don’t have to go back into town. If you like to start the day with a big breakfast I would definitely recommend the breakfast it was unlimited for £10 each. I had plenty to set me up for the day without being greedy and kept me going until dinner. The only small negative we had was with the free Wi-Fi. We couldn’t get any signal from it but that happens in other hotels too so not just unique to this hotel. I would recommend this hotel if your looking for a good value place to stay for the week.

Stayed here for a weekend with my friends for an event. We turned up to a chaotic car park but after speaking to the reception lady (Emma we found out later) she advised on alternative parking which was around the corner. She allowed us to store our luggage until check In in an empty room which was great. We were allowed to have drinks at the bar and play the jukebox. Emma and served us @ bar as well Is there anything you do not do there?? Our rooms were all on 2nd floor we had no issues and everything was fine. When we left for the evening we spoke to a lovely lad on reception who helped organise us a taxi., he also advised on the best places to go in the town. We didn’t have breakfast but we were told it was very nice and good value for money. Thank you to the amazing staff We will be back.

Well where do I start?! Hotel is definitely not worth a 5 star review! Me and my partner stayed a couple weeks ago the room was tiny and dirty, not hoovered and hair on carpet. Asked the miserable blonde woman on reception if we could change rooms and she completely ignored us. We came back after getting food and was greeted by a skinhead looking dirty man who looked like he was on sort of substance and he kept following us and asking us if we wanted anything as in drugs and we kept saying no and he still followed us around the car park while we were trying to have a cigarette. My partner noticed that there was no hot water at all and that there was black dots and red dots on the bedding so we went down to that miserable woman again and said there's not hot water and we think there was bed bugs but she looked up from her chair and she was chatting to someone on her phone and finished doing that before getting up and coming out of her office. I asked for a room change and she just snapped back 'there's no other room's’. Once they have your money they don’t care at all, and we were woken up several times that night by the bald male member of staff who was on the desk that evening and some young blond lad walking up and down corridors laughing and talking about how they do what they want in the hotel, and the corridors were like a human race track, absolute joke! Definitely won't be staying there again, glad we didn’t try breakfast, didn’t want to bang into the skinhead guy again so we went out for breakfast after checking out.

Thank you for taking the time to list your feedback. First of all, we would like to apologise for you not enjoying your stay with us. We do have to say we find it hard to believe the receptionist ignored you, since all staff have training in place to effectively deal with any occurrences that may arise. It might have been that we were full in the hotel and since you complained about a dirty room and not able to switch rooms, she would have handed over complaints to housekeeping to clean your room. We do not tolerate any illegal substances on the premises. The hotel is staffed 24hours a day, 7days a week. In regard to the complaint about “black dots and red dots on bedding” and saying you were ignored doesn’t sit right at all with us at all. In rare cases like this we take it extremely seriously and action would have been taken immediately on-site if this was a legit complaint. If this is a genuine review, then please ring us on 01637 872851 to discuss further. We look forward to hearing from you.
