My wife and I stayed at Gratton Lodge for one week at the end of May. We stayed in one of the garden rooms. The room was clean and fresh and the bed was comfortable with ample room for us both. The bathroom was modern and clean and both the room and the bathroom where cleaned daily.
The gardens and outdoor swimming pool were both made available for guests to use and makes a lovely place to relax in the sunshine and enjoy a drink from the honesty bar. The use of a conservatory and the lounge with TV are also available for the days when its not as warm to sit outside.
Sharon and Geoff and are lovely hosts and make you welcome the minute that you arrive. They are on hand for any requests throughout the day should you need anything. Crumble their dog was also very friendly should you get the pleasure to see him.
The breakfast room provides your breakfast needs including a selection of cereals, fresh juices etc. We would recommend Geoff's Full English to start your day off on the right foot.
The location is great and only a few minutes walk from the town centre. This give a peaceful retreat from the vibrant atmosphere to be found in the town. Be aware this is a major place for young people at the weekend. Lots of groups of party goers on stag/hen nights. The week however is very quite and has a family atmosphere.
The area boasts some lovely beaches and coastal views. Eating out, consists of a variety of local pub restaurants, take aways and formal dinning.The Fort Inn is recommended for a good selection of reasonable priced meals and drinks and very helpful staff. http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g186239-d2100330-Reviews-Fort_Inn-Newquay_Cornwall_England.html
If you want something a bit more up market then try the Lewinnick Lodge on the Pentire headland. Stunning views and excellent food. Caution book early as it gets very busy. http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g186239-d1205352-Reviews-Lewinnick_Lodge-Newquay_Cornwall_England.html
Overall a good base to explore the rest of Cornwall and only about and hour from most places like St Ives and Falmouth. We would go back again when re-visiting the area.
