“Perfect break.”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

From the moment we arrived, being welcomed with tea and freshly baked cake, we felt at home and very comfortable.Chris and Sally were the perfect hosts and not forgetting Oscar whose tail never stopped wagging. Everything was perfect,rooms tastefully decorated and breakfast was delicious and very filling. Chris and Sally could not have been more helpfull and informative when asked about good restaurants and local facilities. We hadnt been to cornwall for over 30 years but Cormorant House would be a reason to go back.

Room Tip: We stayed in Whipsiderry.

We are pleased that you enjoyed re visiting Cornwall after a long time and that Bedruthen Steps rekindled some happy memories!

Just returned from a three night stay, wish it had been longer! Chris and Sally are welcoming and helpful hosts. Comfy beds and the best ever breakfasts. Quiet location but within walking distance of most things to see and do in Newquay. The round table for breakfast is a lovely idea and something that should be widely copied, .An opportunity to share experiences, information and plans with fellow guests. None of the stilted atmosphere and hushed conversations that you so often find in hotels and B & Bs. Had excellent meals in both Maharajah and Dolphin Restaurants

First time visitor to Cornwall, and high ratings led us to book Cormorant House. Sally and Chris are excellent hosts. They offered great suggestions on must see sites, and the best way to make the most of our visit. We stayed in an en suite king room with dual view of the garden. The bathtub was nice way to relax after a full day of exploring Cornwall. The property and our room was extremely clean, comfortable, and very quiet. Just a short walk to beaches and the town centre. Breakfast was outstanding, with a nice menu choices. A tip for those looking for Cormorant House upon arriving in Newquay - take a turn at the Hotel Bristol. Highly recommend, and would definitely visit again. Also recommend the Dolphin Restaurant in town.

This was a last minute break for us. We were very lucky to find that Cormorant House had vacancies. We could not fault this accomodation in any way. Sally and Chris were fantastic hosts. Food fantastic and spotless room. We agree with Nigel W, don't really understand why it is not rated 10, we certainly would rate it 10+. Gordon and Diane

Room Tip: We stayed in the Lusty Glaze room where you had your own front door. Excellent

This was our first ever visit to Newquay, and I booked the accommodation online, straight after booking the flights down. Cormorant House was the first accommodation that popped up, so I had a good look. I didn't look at any other accommodation and I am glad I didn't! Sally & Chris provided me & my partner with A++++ service from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Chris collected us from the airport and dropped us back there a few days later, a brilliant + for us. We had a hot drink & cake with Sally & Chris when we arrived at Cormorant House, which was lovely & welcoming. The breakfasts are excellent, plenty of choice and freshly cooked. Amazing. The room (Penpol) was lovely, clean and the bed was very comfy. Take advantage of Chris & Sally's local knowledge, they will point you in the right direction. Located in the perfect place, that your close to all amenities and beach. In process of booking for next year & bringing the in laws too.

Thank you Terri and Pete for your great review! We loved your enthusiam and could see you enjoyed every minute of your holiday! What a great way to get here as well - a nice short flight to Newquay and our very own chauffeur (Chris) to pick you up and take you on the 'Town Tour'!! As you found, we are ideally located - nice and peaceful but within easy walking distance to the beaches and restaurants. Thank you very much for your reservation for next year and we look forward to meeting your family and seeing you both again!

In brief, Chris and Sally were the perfect hosts, delightful accommodation, delicious breakfast. Sorry that we could only stay the one night, will hopefully return for a somewhat longer stay in the near future!

Having never been to Cornwall before I checked accomodation online. Cormorant House was rated at 9.6 so looked like a good place to stay. Having had two wonderfull weeks I can't understand why it was not rated as 10. Sally and Chris made us feel like we were at home. The room was immaculate, clean, light, airy and very well presented. The food was top class and plenty of it. On arrival we were offered refreshments and made to feel welcomed. Ideally located for access to the beaches, town and local places of interest. It was the perfect place to stay. I would have no hesitation booking again if or when we return to Cornwall. Thank you Sally and Chris for making our holiday so enjoyable.
