Have just returned from a four night coach tour and stayed at the Godolphin.
What can I say except the whole experience was fantastic.
My room, number 25, was compact. However, the big surprise was the bathroom which contained a king sized bath tub and shower.
The room had tea and coffee making facilities and a flat screen TV on which all channels could be obtained.
The bedding and towels were immaculate and the room was properly serviced every day.
Breakfast was of an excellent quality and poached or scrambled eggs were made to order. Wholemeal toast if requested was quickly available.
Evening meals; choice of three starters, three mains and sumptuous puddings, followed by tea or coffee were of an excellent standard. All food was fresh, locally sourced and cooked to perfection. I was very surprised the day I chose chicken and had a choice of either leg or breast. Yes, they cook whole chickens and do not serve the catering packs of only legs.
To ensure quality and availability they have a system where you select your main at breakfast. Bravo full marks.
The wait staff were fantastic as were the staff in their extremely welcoming bar. The drink prices were correct and they even had Guinness on tap. To try though is the on tap pear cider which comes from a cider farm only a few miles away. It's absolutely fantastic.
High speed Wifi is available in all the public areas and in the bar garden.
The only problem is that they do not have a lift, however, one of the men will take your suitcase to your room if you cannot manage it yourself.
For getting into Newquay there is a regular bus service just down the road or a taxi will only charge £4-£5. To get to Truro or the Eden project the bus stop is just across the road by the pedestrian crossing. Time tables are clearly posted and busses are on time.
I would highly recommend the Godolphin and will most certainly return.
