We had a short stay at the Headland in early September. This review is coloured by the great weather but the location just above the beach is superb. The town of Newquay is a bit of a dump but the hotel was far enough away from the centre so you can just enjoy the sea and coast. Watching the sun set from the bar and the early morning seascapes over breakfast was a tonic. The hotel has good facilities and you get that beach-hotel-with-a-bit-of-style vibe. The WiFi is very slow, but who cares?

Room Tip: Get a sea view room.

I am delighted that you had a great stay with us and fantastic that you had the opportunity to witness one of our very memorable sunset moments, we think they are priceless! Our location is very special and we never underestimate how lucky we are to have a Hotel so well positioned, even those of us who arrive here every day to work! Thank you for staying with us and hope to see you next time.

Stayed here for one night last week and had a lovely experience. Quite expensive but definitely worth it. Great well-being area, right on the beach, amazing breakfast and really friendly staff. The only thing that was disappointing was that the bar was not open at 23:15 when we returned from dinner. This seemed strange to us for a hotel of this size. Definitely would stay here again.

A pricey but luxury hotel with a lot of the trimmings, sea rooms can be found on all four sides of the hotel due to being on a headland. We were suprised to be facing inland, yet the view was still good and the room spacious. Unfortunately the bar didn't sell Rattler, the famous local cider in Cornwall, however a trip down to the Well Being area is a must. Surfing Therapy, just by the hotel for wetsuit and surf hire is great value and the people who run it are very helpful.

This is a late review (March) can't rate the cottages highly enough I have such happy memories & can't wait to visit again. Amazing location @ Fistral, stunning. Beautiful accommodation immaculate, ate in the hotel once...gorgeous & I have to add that the service I received at reception was excellent. I really want to visit again would gladly recommend the cottages to anyone!
