“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

We stayed in one of the family rooms with our two kids. A super time was had by all. The hotel is very child friendly and great for a family holiday. What with Fistral beach being just across the road and an indoor pool if the weather is inclement there is enough to keep the kids happy. The restaurant is excellent and so is the service. All in all a place that deserves another visit.

My wife and i stayed here while on a coach trip for 4 nights, and what a brilliant place, the atmosphere was great, the staff were really friendly and the food was exceptional. We had a sea view room and what a view, we could hear the waves through the night, nice and calming, This was our first visit to the Esplanade and definately wont be the last. Thank you for a wonderful time especially the young bingo caller who was the funniest person ever to call bingo. All aspects of the Hotel are first class. My wife LOVED the pool more than the wine, and she drank plenty of that.

Room Tip: Room 110 has a fantastic sea view.

Went on a coach trip to Cornwal to visit the Eden Project, and we stayed at The Esplanade Hotel for 4 nights. really could not fault the hotel, service was excellent. Great room overlooking the Fistral Surfing Beach. Good views good bar. good restaurant, staff very helpful. Enjoyed it very much. would go again.

Room Tip: Choose a sea view good views of surfers in the sea, and getting into their wetsuits, on the road out...

Me and my ther half stayed at The Esplanade Hotel last weekend. We both use to work in hotels and I have to say that it was a great pleasure to stay at Esplandade Hotel. Is exactly as described, food was good, view was amazing... all what we needed for quick get away from London.
We can highly recommend it and for sure we will be back.

Hello Gemma and the team at the esplanade :o)

I can't keep giving you rave reviews.....but we can't find fault with anything!! So yes it's another raving review of the best hotel in newquay.
This is now the 4th stay with you guys and again another brilliant holiday....all the staff were brilliant....with a extra big thank you to you...Glen and Kenny who looked after us brilliantly.
The food again was varied and to a excellent high standard...I can't believe some of the reviews who slate the food...do they eat in Michelin starred restaurants ??? I bet not!!
We even got asked to the evening entertainment that was layed on for the coach parties that were staying for the week.
On one evening we had a slight hiccup with a drinks order not arriving...and had to wait about 30 mins...but once pointed out we recieved our drinks within minutes and the bar manager for that night came over to apoligise straight away....the next evening Glen was back on and asked if everything was ok...we mentioned the issue the previous night and we did say everything was sorted and there wasn't a problem...Glen said that wasn't good enough...and he kindly gave us 2 complimentary drinks which wasn't needed as the problem was sorted...but he insisted....and as for Kenny he was brilliant he gave me 2 rolls each night to dip into my soup!! Brilliant service from everyone...except the bus driver who took us to Truro....we got there on two wheels!!!!!
For anyone thinking about staying here...please give it a go...you won't be disappointed.....and if rom 201 is available pay for the upgrade...it's defiantly worth every penny....have I missed anything out ???
Just to mention the lovely breakfast they offer as well....it's eat all you want and as much as you want...all there are waffles and pancakes available to order each morning....which I did...it would have been rude not to try them again.....look forward to seeing you guys again next May

Many many thanks for a brilliant holiday
Sean and Jo

Room Tip: Pay for the upgrade to a sea view with balcony

This was a coach trip organised by Belle Coaches so didn't pick the hotel myself BUT it was excellent. The room was spacious - it was actually a suite with 2 single beds and 2 bunk beds, lounge and spacious bathroom with large private balcony - clean and the staff were all very helpful. Food was also very good and very well presented. The only disadvantage was the quite long walk into Newquay itself, but as I was on a coach trip with organised excursions every day it didn't matter to me. The Restaurant and lounge overlooked the sea, Fistral Beach which was frequented by surfers.
