Glendorgal is in a super location on the edge of Newquay with an impressive outlook across Porth Island and the sea. The hotel has reasonable facilities and our accommodation was clean, if cramped. We had a room overlooking the sea, with a tiny balcony and an expanse of flat roof in front : not so bad except for being where a large population of seagulls hang out, but hey, its the seaside.
Our room was furnished in fairly neutral (if rather cheap) modern style, it's on a par with Travelodge, but not up to the standard of, say, City Inn - although much less space than either.
The major problem with our experience of the hotel was noise. The kitchens have an air extractor that sounded like a turboprop aircraft was taxiing on the roof. The fan goes off at about 10pm when the kitchen shuts down (hurrah) but started again at 7.10am - on Sunday - (aaaarghh). I cannot begin to describe how intrusive or annoying the noise is. The rooms overlooking the water seem worst affected and ironically they are the most expensive. The sound insulation between rooms isn't up to much either, we could hear our neighbours' conversations as if they were sitting in our room.
We paid £100 for a night's stay, which is a significant discount off of the room rate. Even so i would not rate the value as half that. The hotel would be ok for anyone who is either deaf and used to the sort of personal space you might find in a submarine, or who cant find anywhere else to stay and can get a room here for less than £50.
