We booked 3 nights here for the 1st week in August this year. I've never actually stayed in a B&B before, I've always stayed in hotel chains so wasn't sure if I'd enjoy it as I was worried I would feel like I was staying in someone else's home. I didn't feel like this at all, we could come and go as we pleased and because the 6 rooms were always full there were always plenty of others coming and going and sitting with us at breakfast. John and Kaye are great hosts- they manage to get the balance between being very approachable, friendly and helpful with being professional and giving you your privacy perfectly. We stayed in the 4 poster room and found it to be very spacious- in fact I would go so far as to say it felt more roomy than some of the 4 and 5 star hotels I've stayed in! Yes the bathroom isn't massive but then what hotel bathroom's are really? I'm a larger lady and didn't find it cramped! The room had a little wardrobe tucked away plenty big enough with lots of coat hangers (very useful as some places only supply half a dozen!), we each had a bedside table with 3 drawers, a small chest of drawers and a dressing table with drawers so there was loads of storage. We had tea/coffee facilities, flatscreen TV with freeview, free Wi-Fi and an alarm clock. I was really impressed with the hairdryer- it wasn't one of those little ones that takes an age to dry your hair but a nice big one that does the job and there was a small basket of toiletries too. It really did impress me- there was nothing that a big hotel didn't have! I would go so far as to say it was the nicest place I've stayed in, and by far the best value for money. It was definitely the cleanest! Breakfast was delicious and there was lots of choice too- it kept us going until our evening meal! The location is good with adequate off road parking- you can see the sea from the B&B and a 5 minute stroll takes you to Lusty Glaze Beach. It takes about 20-25 minutes to have a slow walk into Newquay town. We didn't use the car much while we were there, we walked through the town to Fistral Beach and back and also walked to Newquay Zoo and Trenance Gardens and we are not the fittest of people at all! This was our first holiday in Newquay and we have fallen in love with the place, we will definitely be going back and have recommended Blue Haven to everyone!
