“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

We booked one night in a "Best room" at this hotel as a night away from a family holiday in a nearby caravan park - the park was great but this hotel really made our holiday. The view from the room was amazing, the room itself had everything you could want including a lovely bathroom, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will be back for longer next time and would recommend this fantastic hotel to anyone, and especially for children as there is lots for them to do.We felt guilty we left our grandson back at the caravan park!.

Room Tip: Well worth paying extra for a "Best room" with balcony

We booked a nights stay in a standard family room with our 2 year old daughter and we all had a fantastic time. The hotel is the most child friendly that I have ever stayed in. Fantastic pool, jacuzzi and sauna, small soft play area, outdoor play area and toys and games in the lounge. The decor in our room was perhaps a bit dated but overall we were so happy we have booked to stay for another 3 nights in July. We can't wait! Huge thank you to the staff (in particular the reception staff) who were always friendly and able to help with any questions we had.

stopped at this hotel many times over the last 20 years. The staff are great , the food is great and nothing is too much trouble.
The view from our sea view room was amazing , you really cant beat fistral beach when the sun is out.
If i did have one gripe it would be £4.30 for a pint of guinness , ouch , a shame really although the bottles of cornish knocker are superb.
Heres to the next twenty years.


Byrnes family.

Room Tip: ask for a sea view room , that view is amazing.

Being part of an eight man cycle team having completed john ogroats to lands end we ended our challenge with a stay at the esplanade. The staff were friendly and helpful. They allowed us to keep our bikes in storage underneath the hotel. The location is great over looking fistral beach, the rooms were clean, I had a family room which was huge. Did not sample the leisure facilities but breakfast next day was great, would stay again if visiting Newquay.

Room Tip: The family room I had consisted of twin beds and bunks, the room had a conservatory built onto it wh...

This is a happy hotel and family orientated. All members of staff are proactive in attending to visitors' needs, unlike some hotels which have a cold and clinical approach to customers. We were made to feel nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant was clean and airy and food was reasonably priced and menus catered for all tastes. The staff are attentive to individual requirements and were happy to make recommendations. Our family room 102 had a nice modern feel and sufficiently equipped with hair dryer, kettle, tea & coffee. The bathroom had tasteful decor and the shower worked perfectly. The view over Fistral beach is panoramic and certainly gave us a wow when we entered the room. The double bed was comfortable and it was lovely to wake every morning to such a lovely view. This is by far the most family friendly hotel that we have stayed at. We swam in the pool which we found clean and tidy. There aren't lockers but there were hooks in the pool area to hang your belongings. For a 3 star hotel we feel they are heading in the right direction for a happy future. We will be back.
