We arrived early and staff were happy to check us in, that was helpful and we nabbed a parking space as otherwise you have to pay £10 to park, that was lucky. We were quite surprised about the decor in the rooms after walking through dark hot dank hallways, what we didn't understand is why go to the trouble of refurbing the rooms, bar and entrance when the rest of the hotel is falling apart and in desperate need of TLC, even the pool. We did have an amazing view from our room but the windows were so dirty you had to open them to see out!
The staff were friendly and attentive which was very inviting and we enjoyed a drink in the bar. Later on returning from a lovely evening out in town we were greeted by a disco arranged for a party of guests, right below our room, we were on the first floor, it would have been good to have been pre-warned before we booked. When we called reception they said it finished at 1am, this news put a cloud over any romance and we asked to move, they only had a family room available which we took but it wasn't the same.
At 3am the party concluded, with the guests continuing their party in a neighbouring family room, which was very frustrating. I think we actually counted every single spring in the bed, they desperately need changing. With little sleep we woke at 8am and went to breakfast, we had great hopes for a new day put all the bad points behind us..BUT it was probably the worst breakfast ever, processed food that wasn't fresh.. To be fair I think they borrowed their stars from the hotel next door..never again....Beautiful Newquay great weather...It could be so good...shame
