We stayed here for three nights at the beginning of April.
The lobby of the hotel is nice and light and modern and so is the bar. The staff welcome you and were very friendly. You can have a coffee and sit in the comfortable chairs looking over the beach and watch the surfers. The dining room is very spacious and very clean. When we got to our room it was quite modern with excellent views. Unfortunately as soon as we unpacked some kid in the room above decided to play trampoline on the bed. I don't like to complain but we came to relax and we didn't want to put up with noise. Anyway, the staff couldn't do enough to rectify the problem and we were offered another room. It is a family hotel, something I didn't really think about when booking. The staff were very apologetic even though it wasn't their fault.
Every member of staff was friendly. I can't understand some comments on here that say they weren't. Perhaps they expect people to walk round with cheesy smiles on their faces all the time. They were very helpful and made conversation, especially the Bar Manager and his staff. The breakfast staff were also good. They rallied round making sure people had what they wanted.
We only had breakfast, but it was very good. Traditional breakfast, as well as fruit, cereals and lovely pastries, all fresh and plenty of them.
The location is great. Having stayed in Newquay several times I was a little concerned about the distance to walk into town, but it really is only about a fifteen minute walk. You can cross the road and go down some steps and you're on Fistral beach. Lewinnick Lodge bar and restaurant is a pleasant 20 minute walk and the views are amazing, so is the beer and the food.
If I was going to be picky I would only say that the two bedrooms I saw could really do with a little redecoration. But this hotel is definitely a three star hotel.
Overall it's a great place to stay and we will return and we would gladly recommend this hotel to anyone.
