“Will certainly stay again!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

Sorry I have only just got around to writing the review!
I stayed here with family in October 2011, we had two superior rooms and they were brilliant. The views were captivating and there were chairs close to the windows so you could sit and take it all in. We had a bit of a problem with the wind whistling on one of the windows and when we reported it to the staff, the problem was dealt with straight away.
We didn't eat in the restaurant because there was so much choice in the locality.
We booked a parking space and this was super. When we arrived, our name was in a marker on the wall indicating our space. This was well worth the money.
The staff were courteous and friendly and most of all, very efficient. We will definately be coming back to stay here. For the money, it is fantastic value for money.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are well worth the extra.

I booked this hotel for myself, fiance and 2 friends to celebrate my 30th B'day & New Years Eve in Newquay. Having been to Newquay many a time before, this was the 1st time I had even seen the hotel, let alone stayed there, but after this visit, it will be the ONLY place I stay there again!! FANTASTIC!

We had a reserved car park space right in front of the hotel - very secure & easy to find.

The reception staff were welcoming, very friendly & had a little chat with you every time you came & went. Getting an additional hair dryer, extra tea/coffee was no problem.

We reported that our curtain rail had come slightly loose at one end, and within a few hours whilst we were out, the maintenance guy had been in and re-plastered the area with no mess or hassle - brilliant service!

The bar was clean and welcoming.

2 minute walk along the main road to the bars and restaurants and on the cliff top with amazing sea views - couldn't ask for a better location.

But the best but was our room!!! We paid slightly more for a superior room, and it was well worth the money - the BEST hotel room we have stayed in! A HUGE bed, lovely & clean, sofa and coffee table, dressing table, 2 lovely long mirrors, clean & spacious bathroom, and best of all, a gorgeous full length bay window with a table & chairs from which you could look out over the bay of Newquay, watch the sea & waves and all the surfers - FANTASTIC!

By the time we had to leave, it felt like home! Didn't want the trip to end, but will definitely be returning and would highly recommend to anyone for any occasion!

Room Tip: If you are willing to pay a little extra - go for the superior rooms, gorgeous & well worth the...

We didn't actually stay in the hotel but popped in for some food whilst in Newquay. The bar/restaurant area was well decorated, clean and spacious. They even have a new 'dog friendly' section which is great as we'd been for a long walk with ours. The staff were very welcoming with managers Ed & Barbara even popping out to say hello! They even gave 'moo' her own bucket of water!

The food on offer was brilliant with a wide selection and the staff very knowledgeable. It arrived in good time, was well presented and tasted delicious. We'll definitely go back.

Good value for money, excellent location, restaurants near by lots of choice. Excellent reception service , decor is dated and there was a "musty " smell about but I suspect that's due to it needing updating but it was clean and comfortable.
