“You wont find better........”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013

The Headland hotel, WOW! It is a stunning hotel which combines an old style with modern and is everything you could ask for.
Firstly, its location....... Right next to the world famous surf beach of Fistral, amazing views of the Cornwall coast line and a short walk in to town for shopping.
The spa is perfect for a relax and has every kind of treatment and beauty regime you could wish for and a fantastic gym for those who still have any energy left!
The restaurants serve beautifully cooked and presented food which will make your mouth water and give you really hard choices when looking at the menu!
Whilst the hotel is impeccable, the cottages are equally stunning and provide a beautiful and secluded place to stay and are self catering which gives you a bit more freedom. Personally I prefer the cottages to the hotel!
And the staff, well they make the place! They are all perfectly dressed, tidy, polite, kind, helpful and are always available to assist with anything.

Room Tip: They are all good but the cottages which are on the sea view side are just idyllic!

Thank you for your wonderful review of The Headland Hotel, Cottages and Spa. We are very fortunate to be able to offer the beauty of space, either the luxury that of a five star self-catering cottage break on the rugged North Cornish coast, but having the all the services of the hotel close at hand. Alternatively, and as you rightly say, there is also the hotel with all the services you would expect from Cornwall’s finest. Hot off the press, is the news that our spa has just gained ‘five bubbles’ from the Good Spa Guide!
Thank you for your kind comments regarding our staff and taking the time to post this review, we hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back in the New Year.

After a quite stressful few months, we decided to treat ourselves to a weeks break by the sea. We booked a Headland Cottage with a view of the sea, and were not disappointed. The cottage was very well appointed and comfortable ( apart from the bed ). It was warm and cosy and we loved it. We dined a couple of times in the Terrace restaurant which was very good. We have nothing but praise for the experience, except perhaps the lack lustre reception staff and the bed ! ( a board with a mattress ). However, minor points and we will definitely return.

We were looking for somewhere special to celebrate a milestone birthday where our dog would also be welcome. As regular visitors to Cornwall we knew about the Headland so decided to treat ourselves .From the moment we arrived we received excellent service. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was gorgeous, the lobby and lounge were like stepping into a Victorian Gentlemen's club, the whole atmosphere was luxurious and the food was divine. Above all was the way the staff took care of our dog, there were no stuffy rules, he could go anywhere except the restaurant and if we had wanted to eat in there we could have left him with the reception staff. For a true taste of luxury in a fantastic setting overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Fistral Beach I doubt it could be beaten. Give it a try, you won't regret it.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Atlantic have the best view and a few of the best rooms have a balcony.

A truly wonderful review, thank you very much indeed and I am delighted that you were made to feel so welcome at The Headland. It is certainly our focus and absolute priority to achieve this for all our guests, and in our case, often the family dog as well! We genuinely welcome well behaved dogs to stay at the hotel, recognising that for many of our guests, they are very much part of the family. Having Fistral Beach just below the hotel is another serious consideration for those owners who like to give their dog a really good work-out; it remains one of the few beaches in Cornwall where dogs can run freely, off the lead, all year round.

Whilst still very much retaining an air of Victorian elegance throughout, The Headland has benefitted from an incredible level of investment in recent times; not only throughout many of our rooms and suites, but we are particularly proud of the recently unveiled, Headland Spa, complete with 5 bubbles from the Good Spa Guide.

Thank you for your recommendation to those who may be considering a visit to The Headland in the future, we sincerely hope that you may have the opportunity once again as well.

We stayed here in November. It was a wonderful weekend. My father is disabled and we also have my fairly frail Aunt over for lunch. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff from dietary requirements to helping us with Dads wheelchair. They made our stay so relaxing considering all the things were have to consider with mobility needs etc. The food was very tasty. Had a lovely dip in the pool and a treatment at the spa. Great value for the money. We will def return. The surroundings are lovely.

We held our very first Cornwall Today Magazine Awards here at the Headland Hotel in September. It was a large event with over 230 people in attendance - therefore it had to be perfect! On setting up the evening - all the staff at the hotel were amazing - so professional, friendly and helpful - in fact they really couldn't do enough for us. Claire (Head of Events at the hotel) was fabulous, totally calm and in control. The food was wonderful and the rooms were outstanding. Attention to detail is everything and the whole team at the hotel certainly made sure of this. Our evening went completely to plan, all perfectly timed and seamless. I would highly recommend this hotel as a venue for an event or just to come and simply enjoy. Excellent!!

It was fantastic to see this posting come on to Trip Advisor this morning, we thoroughly enjoyed hosting this event, and the table decorations were particularly impressive! Thank you for rating our team so highly and I will ensure that this feedback is shared with all, Claire our events manager, will be delighted in particular.
I hope we may have the opportunity of welcoming you back to The Headland for the same event in 2014, but in the meantime may I offer my best wishes for Christmas to all of the Cornwall Today team.

We have just had a simply lovely long weekend at one of the Headland Cottages. I took my partner there for his first visit and was a little anxious that he would love the place as much as I do. I needn't have worried, everything was perfect.
The staff are still very helpful and the hotel is still relaxed. The cottages are absolutely wonderful.

The best bit was the new Spa which we did not get around to exploring until the last evening - what a mistake. Oh, my. We set our alarm for early so we could check out early and spend as much time as possible in the gym, pool, steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi.

Planning my next trip already...

Thank you Caroline for taking the time to write a review on this forum, it is a pleasure to read that you both enjoyed your stay in your chosen cottage. Although The Headland Hotel can seem a little grand and perhaps daunting as a first impression, as you discovered it really is very welcoming and homely in every respect, especially if you cosy down around one of three open log fires!
Our spa and gym is the latest addition to The Headland and has been very well received especially during these winter months. As you discovered, it is truly luxurious and finished to a very high spec indeed.We believe we have the best spa for many miles around and can’t wait to demonstrate this to our many regular and loyal followers.
Best wishes for the coming year and hope we may have the opportunity to welcome you once again in 2014.

We a fantastic time we had in November staying in cottage Beach1. We were invited by our brother and sister in law to celebrate their birthdays with our nieces and their children . The cottages were fantastic which were fully equipped to a very high standard and decorated and styled to be comfortable and inviting. Our cottage slept 4 with each having our own bathroom, our nieces were staying in another cottage which accommodated 6 with 3 bedrooms. Views from our cottage were fabulous as it was on the cliff edge. The hotel it self offered all amenities you could require with a spa and swimming pool . The hotel offers amazing menus and the service from all the staff can not be better, staff welcome and smile when you enter this hotel and when you leave making you feel a valued guest. We spent a lovely afternoon in the conservatory having a fabulous crab sandwich and a cream tea looking out to sea, this was followed by drinks in the bar by a real fire , a large G&T before retiring back to the cottage for a disco nap before dinner, shyer bliss. Would we return? Definitely, this is well worth the long drive from Hull East Yorkshire. Thank Headlands for a fabulous rest and celebration , even the weather stayed lovely for us what more could we ask for?

Well, what can I say that you haven’t already said! Thank you for such a glowing review, and what a pleasure it was to read on a fairly dark December morning! We are particularly proud of our Cottage Village not least because it earned us a double ‘gold’ during 2013.Following a routine inspection it continues to be rated as ‘five star gold’ by Visit England, additionally we were also awarded ‘Gold ‘in the autumn following the ‘Cornwall Tourism Awards’ under the self- catering category.
It sounds as though you had a lovely stay and celebration with your family, it is fantastic to know that our team looked after you all as you would have hoped, and additionally our food and service was delivered to a high standard.
May I take this opportunity to wish you and your family a peaceful Christmas and happy New Year, I hope that you will return to see us once again in the not too distant future.
