I have just returned after an 8 day visit with 2 lots of 50 14 year old students and 10 teachers. Craig and his family could not have done any more for us to make our stay any better.
The location is perfect: close to centre of town but far enough from the noise, very near Fistral and the harbour. The accommodation is perfect for a school group, the rooms, layout, atmosphere, decor, lounge and dining space suiting our needs totally. The home cooked food is lovely, especially the 'packed lunches' and as it's home cooked was able to accommodate the various allergies and food intolerances our group contained.
The service is brilliant - Craig was practically another member of our school team, helping us out, being our local tour guide, couldn’t do any more to make us feel at home and had a great manner with the students (and great fun with staff.)
The Ocean Lodge is a great place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone. But for any schools looking for a base for their school trip to Newquay you could not find a better stay than here. Our water sports holiday has run with Elemental UK (http://www.elementaluk.com/) in Newquay for over 12 years and we have stayed in many different hotels in Newquay but we are booked up here next year already!
Thank you again to our hosts Craig, Carol and family. We are looking forward already to doing the same again next year and this being our permanent base for our school trip.
