“Duncan is the man!”
Reviewed 19 December 2011

I stayed at the hillcrest in late August 2011 for a week of surfing and relaxing with my partner and another couple. The hotel and owner (Duncan) was fantastic. The rooms were very clean and welcoming. The breakfast was hearty and a perfect start for good days surfing. There is a range of surfing equipment to choose from. We all had excellent surfing lessons arranged through the hotel. It is only a short walk to town and the beach. Duncan is an experienced surfer and gave us great advice. He was extremely helpful especially when I got stung by a weaver fish!
I will be staying here again.

Having read the last review on here, I could not disagree more that the hotel is just held together with quick fix workmanship. I thought very much to the contrary, that the hotel was BRILLIANT. Personally, I thought the decor was clean and bright and the room way clean and tidy and the bed linen smelt lovely and fresh. Well located for a short walk into town with lots of shops, restaurants and pubs. Duncan (the owner) could not have made us feel more welcome with his warmth and friendly smile. The breakfast was great and the staff were really lovely. I was there with a group of 8 other friends and we all loved the place. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family. Duncan, thank you for looking after us so well. Maria.

Seemed like an okay place at first but it did not take long to see the place is held together with quick fix workmanship to make money and will most likely only be around for a season or two. Not too bad for a cheap nights sleep but not a place to call home.

I stayed here with 2 friends for a long weekend , the hotel was very clean and brightly decorated , rooms were very modern. Duncan (the owner ) was very helpful and friendly, we also had a surf lesson arranged by the hotel , which was great fun. Breakfasts were good too , choices of cerals / toast and something cooked.

Overall highly recommended.

This hotel is very comfetable, very clean and very friendly. Close to all amenities, beaches, town centre, railway station but still set in a quiet and peaceful setting. The stay there was extremely enjoyable, lovely breakfast. Extremelely helpful owner, makes your stay very enjoyable. He was very knowledgable about Newquay, restaurants, surfing and any general information. I would definately return and recommend this Hotel to all my friends.
