Like many people we met on our trip tp Newquay we too had our trip to Egypt cancelled due to the volcanic ash cloud.We had not visited Cornwall since our childhood ..and we were not disappointed!The Headland is a beautiful Iconic hotel.We were greeted by excellent staff and we also had an upgrade to a lovely room with a coastal view.The bathroom was a huge and well decorated.Our bed was gorgeous and the maid lovingly arranged my teddy bear in the middle of the bed each day.
The headland is a very historical hotel and Adam on reception had no hesitation i showing us the old photographs of the Royal family which had stayed there,I found it absolutely fascinating.The views of many of the bays are spectacular,especially Fistral,which has to be the creme de la creme of beaches.
We ate twice at the Terrace,once for cream tea and the other for dinner.On both occaisions we experienced great food and service.We did not at at the Sands Brasserie for dinner,although the menu looked really good.
Breakfast was also very good,the choice and quality of food was excellent.
The other great thing about this hotel is that is away from all the notorioius
rif raf in town.We really enjoyed walking into town each day from the hotel.
Overall we had a fabulous time at the Headland,it made me feel very nostalgic.We would not hesistate to stay there again.
