“Five Star accommodation from Five Star hosts!”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

From the moment we arrived we knew that we had made the right choice in booking this delightful B&B, which we did without issue through their website www.cormoranthousenewquay.co.uk. Its charm only matched by that of its wonderful hosts Sally and Chris! Their warm welcome consisting of tea, homemade cake and friendly banter was greatly appreciated after a tiresome journey. Though our stay was quite short, we benefited from the central location - and our hosts' local knowledge - making the most of the beaches, bars and restaurants that Newquay has to offer, without having to worry about taxis after an evening out! Despite everything being just minutes away on foot, the accommodation itself was peaceful and quiet; the lovely light and airy decor contributing to a relaxed homely feel - and a good night's sleep ;-) I would have to add that the delicious hearty breakfast enjoyed at the communal round table - an innovative and social idea - perfectly 'rounded off' our stay, and was just what we needed to set us up for the day of travel ahead! Thank you Sally and Chris for far surpassing our expectations, this was our first, but certainly won't be our last stay at Cormorant House! :-)

Thank you Tanya, for your lovely comments. It was nice meeting you both and we enjoyed your company. You were lucky with the weather when you were out exploring our lovely coastline; those walking boots were certainly put to good use! As you found, Cornwall is beautiful at any time of the year! We hope your journey back to the lovely Isle of Wight was a little easier than your journey here and we look forward to seeing you both again next year!

Host Chris and Sally found the perfect balance between being helpfull without becoming obtrusive. Combine that with the very central location of their house in South Cornwall, add Chris' outstanding breakfasts and there is little more to wish. Just one little thing folks, it can't be that hard to extend WiFi to all your rooms.

Thank you Jan, for your review, it was very nice to meet you both and we are glad you enjoyed your time at Cormorant House; Sally's cooked breakfast and the exceptional waiter service of Chris! We apologise that you had to sit in the lounge to log onto your laptop; it is strange that most of our guests are able to get wifi in the room that you were in including ourselves, however, just to make sure this is never a problem for anyone else, we ordered a wifi booster when you first reported the problem and it arrived the day you left. It is now set up to make sure that all rooms receive a strong signal. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip in the UK and had a good and safe journey back to the Netherlands. Warmest regards, Sally and Chris.

We got married in Newquay and choose to stay here because of the reviews and the pictures of the room looked lovely. It was even better then we thought it would be. From the moment we arrived Sally & Chris were so welcoming and they couldnt do enough for us. They went above and beyond to help us with some last minute wedding hiccups and we cant thank them enough for everything. The breakfast was fantastic with a round table experience to chat to other guests which we really enjoyed. We stayed in the Lusty Glaze room and it was beautiful, very clean and spacious. Its close enough to easily walk to town without all the noise and close to the beaches, so the location is perfect. Definitely stay here dont look anywhere else, you wont be disapointed!

Thank you Charissa and James for your lovely review. It was a real pleasure to have you stay at Cormorant House and for us to be able to help smooth out a couple of wedding hiccups - glad our fridge was big enough for the cake! it was nice to meet your bridesmaids and family at breakfast time and see you in your beautiful dress - you looked amazing! We hope you had a great time on the rest of your honeymoon and that you are both enjoying married life. Hope to see you again in the future! Warmest regards, Sally and Chris.

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.

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.
