“Very nice break away”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

We had a very nice long weekend,the weather was beautiful,on arrival was given a (free) tray with coffee and tea and biscuits.
The owners were very nice,
Rob the cook did a wonderful breakfast every morning the waiting staff was very nice,our room we found very small and it felt like the rooms was shoe horned in,the room was dusty,the heated pool was cold evey day also the owners allowed the guests to leave there towels on the loungers while they went out all day not good as there was only about 10 sun loungers,could only use my ipad in the lounge area,
There was a notice about not making noise after 10-30 but still had to listen to people slam there bedroom doors late at night.
Hope this dont put you off as it was a great stay

Room Tip: we didnt have this room,but the best room is 22

My wife and I spent a week at the hotel on the recommendation of our younger son who had been a couple of times. As we always do, we still looked on Trip Advisor to see what other people thought and found almost unanimous praise for the Whipsiderry. Now I can only assume that those who gave a negative review went to a totally different hotel or just like writing untrue comments.

We were totally satisfied with our time at the hotel. The greeting was very friendly and we immediately felt 'at home'. The room, though not large, was spotlessly clean and had everything we required and a wonderful sea view. The food was hot, well prepared and there was a choice each night from 3 starters, a different soup, 3 main courses, 4 desserts, cheese and biscuits (which we never managed) and coffee. All served efficiently with a smile.

The overall cost was not 'budget priced' but very good value for money. We will definitely return to the Whipsiderry the next time we holiday in Cornwall.

Room Tip: A sea view room is worth the extra cost

I absolutely loved the location of this hotel, 20mins walk down a beautiful coastal path took you to Watergate Bay and 20mins walk along the other way took you to Newquay. We arrived at the hotel earlier than check in time and luckily our room was available and the owner allowed us to check in, she was very friendly and showed us around the hotel which although pleasent was in need of some updating (only in my personal preference) We then set off for lunch at Jamie Oliver's restaurant Fifteen at Watergate Bay which was very nice, worth going if you can get a reservation. We returned to the hotel after an afternoon strolling along the beach and chilled out. The view from our room which was on the back of the hotel was lovely overlooking the beach. We decided to walk to Newquay in the evening for fish and chips and had fun walking back in the dark and fog wondering if we might get lost! When we got back to the hotel it was full of people have such fun participating in a quiz in the bar which the oweners were hosting, the owner came and checked straight away if we were ok and needed anything, to which she gladly fetched us a couple of drinks. We then went off to bed and had a comfortable nights sleep. The shower was a little disappointing as it was not very powerful however the room was clean. Breakfast was of a good standard and the cost of the hotel was pretty average for high season and the type of room. I would recommend someone to stay at this hotel but maybe only for one night...

Room Tip: Try and get a room at the back of the hotel, if you prefer modern hotels then maybe this is not for...

Chose this small hotel on Trip Advisor comments and was not disappointed.
It is a well run hotel, nothing is too much trouble for Andy and Lisa.
High quality food with good variety and no corners cut; obviously an excellent chef.

Many thanks to Andy & Lisa for their very warm and friendly welcome. As always, our stay was fabulous and many congratulations to Rob for his continuing excellence in the kitchen - the food is to die for. I can't think of anywhere else that you would feel so at home and we are already looking forward to next year. Long may it continue.

Just got back from our 10th stay in as many years at this lovely Hotel. As always the hospitality we receive from Andy and Lisa is great. I can't recommend this Hotel highly enough. It's location, accommodation and fabulous food is second to none. Can't wait to spend our 11th year with all at the Whipsiderry.
