“Great for what it is”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

This is a modern hotel with everything that goes with that like thin walls, mass produced feel and enough plug sockets (a must!)

I refused the sea view upgrade at £20 but was given a partial sea view anyway, which was great.

Room was amazingly spacious for what we paid and room and bathroom were to a high standard of decor, even if the shower was surprisingly weak.

Staff were extremely nice and friendly

Booked on late rooms, room only, for £59 same day which was great value for money.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple

The Esplanade Hotel, opposite Fistral beach, Newquay is one of the best hotels, we who organise group holidays, have ever had the pleasure to stay in. Our party were treated exactly the same as any other paying guest which is not always the case unfortunately. The staff, in all areas, were superb showing great patience, understanding and kindness to all. They were efficient and thorough and couldn't have been more helpful to our clients and us. Unfortunately, all too often groups can be made to feel subservient to other guests. This hotel has got it RIGHT.
The restaurant was run efficiently, the menu outstanding with good and variable choices of food catering for all diets, ergonomically pleasing to the eye and always delicious. The chef and his staff should be very pleased. The entertainment and friendliness of the bar staff always made a great evening too.
We travel all over Britain & Europe with different groups and wish that other hotels would take a leaf out of The Esplanades guide book and do it their way. Well done a great stay which all our guests thoroughly enjoyed.

Room Tip: Would recommend paying the supplement for a Seaview room.

My husband and I stayed in the Esplanade for 3 nights. As it was our anniversary we asked for a sea view room and we were given The Contemporary room, with a sea view, along with a box of chocolates and a card from all the staff! The staff were lovely. We ate in the restaurant for breakfast which was buffet style, great for a fill up to last the day when going surfing!

Great that it is so close to the sea, and that you can come into the hotel in the wetsuits! Only small criticism is that there isn't really anywhere in the room to hang the suits other than in the shower cubicle. (Although we didn't ask the hotel if they had anywhere else, so they may have!)

We have spent many holidays in Newquay and would definitely return to this hotel. When staying elsewhere in Newquay we visit the esplanade for drinks at night, and the entertainment is mixed for different ages. Previously have attended and played Cornish bingo, which had the whole family laughing.

This area of Newquay is great to stay in, close enough (short 5-10 min walk) to enjoy the nightlife of Newquay, but far enough to get a good nights sleep!

Fistral beach is great for the surf. Crantock beach is a short drive but great for a more sandy beach and playing games!

We would definitely recommend The Lanhern for carvery and The Maharajah for a beautiful curry!

I returned to the Esplanade Hotel in Newquay Cornwall on a glorious Day ! As always, as i have made Visitations to this Hotel many times in the prehistoric times of latter occassions i was greeted with radiance and warmth . The Hotel is extremely clean , with pleasing colours of every description, to proactively enhance an enjoyable stay. The food is well recommended , with satisfying appetite, The views from the Esplanade Hotel are of the beautifull Fistral Beach , so a Sea View room is highly recommended. Price wise is moderate for the location, This Hotel is deemed as one of the best in United Kingdom
