I don't get around to writing many of these but I just couldn't keep this gem for myself! My partner and I visited Newquay for my birthday last weekend (bank holiday 24th-26th May 2013). I had been looking at hotels on booking.com for weeks and had my eye on Fistral Beach Hotel & Spa but at £410.00 for a room with a view with breakfast and parking, it seemed a bit steep! We're not local so it cost us a good £80.00 in petrol to get to Newquay so we wanted to keep our costs down as much as possible so we had more to spend! It was by chance that I saw this B&B listed on booking.com at a rate of £180.00 for two nights. It seemed perfect! Perfect location, neutrally decorated, light and contemporary with beautiful views overlooking Fistral Beach! I contacted the owners directly via their website and got a rate of £140.00 for the two nights. The B&B doesn't have parking facilities so I would recommend visiting parkatmyhouse.com to book your parking spot. We got in touch with a lovely couple who live just ten minutes walking distance from the B&B and paid to park in their driveway all weekend! They even gave us a mini tour around Newquay and a lift to the B&B when we arrived at their house!
Brian & Julie, the owners of the B&B were wonderful. They welcomed us and let us check in early. Our room was small but beautiful and spotless! Even the kettle was immaculate and you don't see that in many B&B's! The best thing about our room was the view! We had beautiful weather so the short periods in our room were spent in the window! Breakfast was delicious and Brian & Julie even shared their stash of black pudding with us on the Sunday morning! Really couldn't fault the service. There is absolutely no sense in paying hotel prices for impersonal service when everything you need is waiting for you at Seashells! We will definitely return. Thank you Brian & Julie!
