Reviewed 26 August 2014

Me, my boyfriend and mum decided to enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend on a trip to Newquay. I found this hotel on booking.com and thought the price was reasonable and it seemed to have good reviews. I couldn't agree more with what others have said. The owners were super friendly and accommodating, with a warm welcome.

Rooms are nice with tea, coffee and biscuits to enjoy. There was a list of recommended things to do in Newquay as well as good restaurants to visit. The full English breakfast was delicious with a choice of cereals to pick from too.

The honesty bar was a really good idea and it was nice to chill by the window with a beer and enjoy the view.

The owners went the extra mile for us and noticed that our swimming stuff was wet, and dried it for us. I thought this was a thoughtful touch.
The only downside I can think of was that the toilet in our room too a long time to refill after flushing and was very noisy. This meant getting to sleep initially was quite difficult. Only a minor downside though.

We were very happy here - the location is great to explore Cornwall, but not for going out drinking in the centre of Newquay, but who in their right mind would want to do that anyway?

Really friendly staff and clean rooms, great cooked breakfasts! Highly recommended.

This was our second 10 night stay at Porth Cove. I cannot speak to highly of our hosts Jim and Yvonne. Lovely clean fresh rooms super views close to the beach and lots of nice walks. Coming back next year.

We returned to the Porth Cove on the 18th & 19th July for our second stay.
We were again made very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
With lovely views and a position close enough to the Newquay nightlife but far enough away for plenty of quiet, this is an ideal base to explore the area.
Breakfast was good and hotel was nice and clean.
Give the Porth Cove a go!

The host are lovely and very welcoming. The views from the community sitting and bar area are uninterrupted and stunning. Lots of room to relax and read or have a drink. This location is quiet and away from the town centre. It is a good base for Southern Cornwall but you will need a car. Thanks for a great stay. Jo and Peter W. Australia
