“OK but there were a lot of stairs in this hotel”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

Only stayed here for one night but we found this hotel to be OK except for the stairs. We were on level 2 and had a few flights of stairs to climb up to get to our room and carrying our stuff was hard work, even though we are reasonably young and fit?!!

The car parking was also a bit tight as many of the spaces were reserved for the villas and apartments, which actually look very nice and are located around the pool area.

The bedroom we had was a large room, with a lovely shower and was very clean but the room itself was a little dated. The beds were zipped together which was not great. The TV in the room was small too but there was tea, coffee facilities available.

The pool looked good, although the weather wasn't great so didn't get to use it.

The breakfast selection was very good, from yogurts, fruits, cereals, toast, jams and preserves and a full English or a selection of what you wanted. The staff in the dining room were very sweet and looked after us very well.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are a small hotel of 18 bedrooms and therefore it is not cost effective for a lift to be installed at the Hotel. Therefore if you are on the 2nd floor you would need to climb two flights of stairs. We do offer help with luggage if this was not offered I can only apologize, however if you ask at reception on arrival or departure we would happily carry guests luggage up and down the stairs.

Within the car park we have 34 places or which 12 are reserved for villas and apartments on the complex the remaining spaces are for the 18 bedrooms in the hotel. In the evening occasionally non-resident park for a few hours for dinner. We feel we have ample spaces for guests the majority of the time, but on a few occasions we could do with more but it is not physically possible to add any more.

All of ours rooms are clean and recently decorated not all are to everyone's liking. Some of our rooms are zip and link and some are pure doubles and twins. A zip and link bed is used in many hotels across the world to make them more versatile to the needs of the business. The TV in the room is ample for the size of the room you stayed in. We do have large TV in 6 of our larger rooms.

I am sorry the weather was not as good as expected however rain or shine the pool is lovely as it is heated to 28-30C

I would like to thank you for you feedback on the breakfast selection and the team in the dining room. I look forward to welcoming you back to the Hotel in the future.

Just a very short walk from the charming little bay and town of Porth, the Porth Veor Hotel was our base for 24 hours of R&R after a week of noisy camping. It did the the job perfectly. The staff were courteous and helpful, the rooms were clean and spacious enough for our needs, the cream teas were great - and huge - and we spent several hours "chillaxin" in the conservatory and gardens. It was an ideal base for us and our five children. (the five bed family room for all the kids was ideal, our double room was superb too). The hotel is not grand, or overstated, or plush or . . . . . well. It was just very comfortable. Thanks PV and all your staff!

Room Tip: Five bed family room had a bunk, a double and a single and would suit a family of five. You're a...

I booked this 3 night stay through secret escapes for my mother and myself and didn't really know what to expect. We were very impressed by the hotel facilities and service. The heated pool was a real treat and the food we had, at breakfast and a wonderful cream tea, was delicious. The only draw back was being on the top floor and having two steep flights of stairs to walk up! However the view of the bay from our room made that worth while and throom itself was very well equipped, even having a comfy sofa, and was very clean and well presented. The staff were very friendly and helpful and there is a lovely atmosphere in the place, the large wrap around conservatory was a fantastic place to sit and have a drink at the end of a busy day exploring cornish gardens. The grounds were very clean and well kept and there is a lovely path down to the bay from the back lawn. Porth itself is much nicer than neighbouring Newquay, quieter and perfect for a picnic whilst watching the waves roll in. The water is shallow but there were still plenty of people using surf boards and kayaks. In all we had a fabulous stay.

Room Tip: If you don't like stairs ask not to be on the top floor.

As the title says really! VERY Helpful Staff, even called to say the room was ready (we arrived early!) ***ALSO HAS WI-FI!! ***

Stunning views of Porth Beach and surrounding views from the villa. The pool was lovely and warm as I remember it was last year.

Not far from Newquay (only 5 mins in the car to Asda). Would recommend a visit to the Healey's Cornish Cyder Farm (about a 20 min drive away).

Andrew the Manager was a pleasure to deal with & made sure everything was ok.

Currently planning next years visit, wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Worth booking. We stayed in hotel for 5 nights. Lovely friendly place. We had room 22 which was up at the top of steep staircase, not good if you're infirm. Room had beautiful views over the bay. Room was huge and could have slept family of 5 if you were on a tight budget. The villas around the pool looked lovely too. The grounds were spacious and great for sitting in with a cider after a long day sightseeing. The restaurant was very expensive so didn't eat there in evening. The breakfast was ok but couldn't understand why you only got half slice of black pudding! Would recommend this hotel to others. There are a few restaurants nearby which we found just by exploring the area. Try the tapas bar excellent food but book before hand as its busy.

Room Tip: The higher up the better the view

Stayed in the apartments for three nights and had a thouroughly enjoyable stay. Excellent facilities, spotlessly clean and the perfect size for a family with an older child. Enjoyed the outdoor (heated) pool and the short walk to a very pretty little beach. Also found the reception staff to be very helpful and attentive.

It was a great place to base our short visit to Cornwall from and will definitly look to stay there again.
