A weekend in Newquay due to a wedding, the reception being held in this hotel, so it made sense to check in here. First impressions, a warm welcome at the reception desk, signed in, and then up to our room, which overlooked ‘The Gannel’. Room was a decent size, clean.
Now for some negative points, with such a brilliant view, the glass balcony door could have done with a clean to appreciate the view with out stepping on to the balcony. The balcony could have done with a sweep, when I righted the small upturned plastic table, the rainwater that had collected spilled over on to my feet. The dressing table showed signs of considerable wear. These small points do let down what is a comfortable hotel.
Breakfast at the hotel. When we entered the dining room, again, we received a warm welcome from the waiting staff. I had the traditional English breakfast, my wife had the scrambled egg, both were excellent. At the wedding reception, there was a three-course meal in the restaurant, considering the number of people to serve the food was of a good standard, again praise for the staff
The seating area and the dining room are large, comfortable, again with spectacular views of the Gannel and the beach of Crantock in the distance. The hotel does host an awful lot of art, which may not be to everyone’s taste, but it is certainly worth looking at. My first impressions of some of the art I did not like, but over the weekend, my views did change. Good to see quality work
For me if we were to return to Newquay, I would stay here again. The staff make this hotel, food was good, just a bit more care in the maintenance of this hotel, please.
