“good hotel, wonderfull staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2011

I booked a last minute coach trip for24th-28thOct for myself,husband,& 11 year old grandson. After reading the reviews I feared the worst! however on arrival we received a very warm welcome from John and transfered swiftly to the dining room for dinner while staff took our cases to our room. Room 8 was very clean with super t.v. & well stocked hospitality tray.Food was excellent with plenty of choices for breakfast & dinner,even my grandson cleared his plate! Staff were very friendly & helpfull & nothing was too much trouble for them.Entertainment was very good,the best night had to be Wednesday with Alans quiz & cornish bingo(laugh a minute!)rounded off with a touch of Jethro, Brilliant!!! All in all we really enjoyed our stay & would most definately stay here again.Thank you all.

6 of us stayed at this hotel. Two couples and our older Sons of 19 and 20.

What we liked.

It's an absolutely super location and you couldn't want for more to be fair. A short walk from the town centre, shops, restaurants and bars. The surfing is awsome and the 'blue wings surf school' is recommended Mart and his brother are very nice indeed.

The staff in this hotel are very friendly and helpful although the " we're not always behind the desk so if you need your key help yourself" worried me slightly as I had expensive camera equipment with me. The hotel itself is very run down and in need of a complete refurb to be honest but due to the company I had it didn't bother me too much, you make your own happiness is my moto and to be fair it was way cheaper than the others and totally what I expected.

If you want modern clean and well appointed don't book here. If you want really attentive staff and someone to pander to your every whim don't book here.

If you want cheap and cheerful and a great location then book here!

Room Tip: try to get the front of the hotel and you can see the sea from the top rooms :D

The hotel is 5 minutes from the centre of Newquay, however the smell of the bar hit us as soon as we arrived. The Reception area is unwelcoming and although our room was clean it was in desperate need of updating and the duvert covver was past its sell by date. The breakfast is the worst I have been offered. The dining room was locked until 8.45am (breakfast being 8.45am - 9.30). Residents were queing in the reception area waiting to get in. A tiny glass of juice, cereal in large tupperware boxes measured with mugs, yes mugs, weak coffee, and a very small English Breakfast. Two residents ate breakfast in their pyjamas.

Very friendly and very welcoming. Relaxing atmosphere with great evening entertainment - full marks to Alan the barman for his performance on the Wednesday evening!

The room was clean, beds were comfortable and there was more than ample tea/coffee/sugar/milk provided.

Meal times were very organised also. Portions were perfect and the food was delicious - 10/10 for the bread pudding!

Location: Ideally situated for the town centre and for Towan Beach. Within easy reach of various attractions.

Stayed at the Hotel Glendeveor Newquay 14th to 20th Aug. The negative reviews we read prior to our visit made us fear the worst.
The holiday was great, the Hotel staff were just great, the waiters were just great, the food was just great and plenty-full if required.
Then there was the evening entertainment that just got better and better. Wednesday evening was terrific, Alan took the stage for the evening and it was the best laugh we've had for a long long time. Keep up the good work Glendeveor.

Having booked to stay at the Glendeveor hotel in July I was quite worried after reading some of the negative reviews of the place. I should not have worried. Although the place is a little dated , the staff more than make up for this. John, the manager is more than approachable, Plug the barman is very friendly and Alan, well I'll let you make up your own mind, they certainly broke the mould when they made that one. We stayed bed and breakfast and no complaints were made from our table, breakfast was lovely every morning so compliments to the cook aswell. All I can say is one thing not to be missed is quiz/bingo night with Alan, we laughed so much it hurt. All in all a great place to stay and will definitely be going back next year.
