My partner and I stayed here for just one night but found the place to be a very comfortable and clean hotel. We have stayed in much more expensive hotel that were not half as good as this one.

The reception, bar and restaurant areas are lovely and have a great view of the estuary and the countryside. The terraces would be lovely to sit on in the sunshine. There is a pool and spa area and ten pin bowling area which is reasonably priced.

The room we had was comfortable and we both slept really well. The staff were really polite and helpful and the breakfast we had was really hot, freshly cooked. As well as being able to help ourselves to cereal, juice, fruit and toast.

Would stay here again without a doubt. Thank you to all the staff!!!

We were a small coach party visiting Cornwall's gardens. We found the hotel excellent, staff helpful, food lovely and the location quite stunning. There were also some good amenities which included swimming pool, bowling, table tennis etc. We could not have asked for more.

If the hotel was a bit tired in places, this was a small consideration compared to the location. We would recommend the hotel to family and friends.

The Hotel is very nice, the city in its self is great and the staff is simply fantastic.
I booked the hotel weeks before but on the day i should leave London to go there, I couldn' t make it. A very serious problem was against me and my plan to spend the week end in Newquai.
I met Laura, only by phone but I feel like I have to thanks her for helping me in trying to meet my needs and trying to see the situation from my point of view. I guess her job shouldn't be that easy, customer service is the most difficult job i have ever done in all my life, that's why I decided to work with computers. At the end of the day, what is most important thing is the city and the people you meet during your trip, so for this reason and one more I highly raccomand this hotel.
thanks once again

As others have said its a little tired in places but reasonable for the cost. Staff helpful particularity receptionist. Stayed one night. Had a reduction on evening meal by booking through reception on arrival. Some distance from centre of Newquay but a bus stop with hourly service during the weekdays outside entrance. Wonderful views of the valley from bedroom so try for one at the rear if possible. Little concerned by a stag party noisy in bar on arrival but no significant issues. Not far from the coastal path if you are planning to use that at all. Did not use sports facilities but some appeared to be an additional cost. Experience reasonable for the cost although some breakfast options appeared to be at additional amount which I would normally have expected to be included. Overall I would recommend this place

stayed here just one night, the room was a bit dated but otherwise clean and tidy. Very spacious room with a sliding door leading out to the balcony that over looked the outdoor pool. The hotel has a lot to offer with an indoor and outdoor pool, bowling alley and restaurant. Breakfast was included in the price and you could have cereals, toast etc or a full english. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Booked a double room last Christmas for myself plus (at the time) heavily pregnant wife. Room was freezing cold + damp, en-suite bathroom was dirty/grubby. Felt like walking into an old peoples home, depressing decor, not been updated.

Receptionist was rude + unaccommodating, plus made us feel guilty for complaining about our room. So much for any Christmas spirit.

We left within an hour of checking in and found a much more comfortable hotel. Would not recommend this place to friends/relatives.

Stayed at Hotel California on a Groupon offer. The staff were great & very friendly.
Is a lovely hotel... the rooms were a little small but were clean and comfortable.
The restaurant served lovely food and the bar area had a nice warm atmosphere with great service.
