Spent a 5 day National break here; the hotel could probably do with a refurb but our room was large, the beds were comfy and clean, the bathroom was fine though we only had a shower cubicle and anyone of slightly larger frame than normal would have struggled! And as mentioned in other reviews there is no lift and our room on the top floor meant 5 small flights and 3 fire doors to maneouvre.
We took other reviewers' advice and paid for a sea view and it was well worth it. The only down side of the view is that it came with a noisy road too - but if you're tired (and you will be after a day's sight seeing with National) then you'll sleep. The food was good with plenty of choice and our waitress (Stacey) was a real tornado so you never waited for long - she even made sure that a teenage lad saw the evening menu at breakfast to make sure there was something on it he liked, if not she came up with an alternative for him. Good service. In fact the staff are the thing you will remember from this hotel from the manager, reception staff, bar staff and waiters their friendliness, helpfulness and general chat makes your time here enjoyable.
Newquay itself has lots of bars but if you want a local place turn right out of the hotel, first right and continue along the road to the Lanherne - might be sponsored by Miracle Grow they have so many flowers in baskets!
Also, if you go to Healey's Farm then order one cream tea between two - they are very filling!
