“we had a geat short stay at the Elliot.”
Reviewed 1 October 2009

We travelled with Alfa coach company for our short stay in Newquay. the journey down was a little long, but to be expected. Ken our lovely coach driver made up for it, he was great fun and always had loads of information for us about various things and places on the way down and in fact for the rest of our holiday.

We arrived at the Elliot Hotel early evening,which was situated close to the town centre and beach ,
The Hotel was bright clean and staff did its best to accommodate my Nan's wheel chair, but would have like to see more wheel chair friendly facilities.

signing in to get the keys was fast and easy. dinner was being served at 7 so we had time to go to our room and settle in,

we had a family room as there were three of us, the room consisted of a large room with double bed and a small room with a single bed which was a lovely surprise. there were tea and coffee facilities in our rooms and the rooms maintained every day .

The entertainment was good but a little old fashioned my Nan and auntie enjoyed it , but it would be good if they could bring the entertainment up to date for younger people ..
All in all it was a lovely place to stay , a lovely short holiday with Alfa very good value with good food and friendly staff ....

The hotel was basic but always clean. Rooms cleaned everyday. The food was very good, mainly homemade which makes a wonderful change. The hotel was just off the main street so walking into town was not a problem. The staff were always friendly and helpful and service in the restaurant was prompt. Being without a car was not a problem because the local buses were brilliant, they travel to most destinations in Cornwall and are pretty reasonably priced and take you to places you wouldn't necessarily see otherwise. The people in Cornwall seem so friendly even the youngsters (perhaps its a more relaxed lifestyle that they live).

Stayed here as part of a coach tour.
Hotel was only 2 minutes from the beach.
Room was clean and comfortable but was very warm, even for early September, and we asked for a fan to cool the place down as we could not sleep. Rooms all had Freeview TV's, kettle, hair dryer, so had everything you needed for a stay. Had daily maid service as well.
Staff were friendly and helpful, and special praise for the manager, June, who helped with the fan and also when our window blew open and 'stuck'.
Food was okay, starters and sweets in particular, but the main courses were disappointing. Restaurant staff were always happy to get you extra toast at breakfast or any other requests, and they also had a choice of vegitarian dishes and daily specials which you could order that morning.
Also had nightly entertainment if you didn't fancy venturing into Newquay of an evening.
Overall, an enjoyable stay, but definitely geared towards the older traveller.

The Elliot Hotel was clean and comfortable. There was a good choice of food and the food was as good or better than than some restaurants I have visited. The sevice was very good and the staff friendly. The evening entertainment was a bit corny but enjoyable and even though there was only a small party of people it was fun.

I traveled with Alfa, the driver was very nice, polite and gave a very good commentry of the local history.

An old fashioned sea side hotel,it is Clean comfy, if a little tired.
The staf are,very helpfull and nothing is to much trouble.
Food is good and a differant menu, each day. Portions are bit small, we had to ask for extra potatoes each day .the english breakfast is very good and really sets you up for the new day. The only down side is the entertainment ,it is terrible. Also watch your step on the stair case, very steep. otherwise book with confidence, it is very nice.

my husband,and myself along with two friends stayed at the eliot hotel at the end of august, we were really happy with our room, very clean and spacious, the food was really good with a wide variety to choose from, the staff were very helpful and pleasant and couldnt do enough for us. we went with alpha travel and our coach driver the lovely charlie was brilliant, it was charlies first time in newquay so we were not expecting alot from him but as we were enjoying our hols he was doing his homework and finding out everything he needed to know about the place, so when we went on our day trips to the eden project and the lost gardens of heligan charlie had learnt enough information to relay to us and tell us about us all about it,well done charlie. we would definately stay at the eliot hotel again and also travel with alpha.

My wife and I have just returned from one of Alfa coach holidays to Newquay, unfortunately we were allocated one of Alfa’s sub contract coaches namely Aqua, before I go any further we also had the same coach company on our trip of Alfa’s to Llandudno, in June of this year, where the coach driver wasn’t very informative but the driver that took us back was one of Alfa’s namely Alan, and he was so much friendlier and spoke more to us on the journey home than the Aqua driver did all week. Anyway I digress, getting back to the Newquay holiday, after Alan picked us up on the feeder coach and then were transferred to the Aqua coach, again the driver John wasn’t at all informative, in fact we had to on several occasions to ask him when he wanted us back on the coach. When we eventually arrived at the Eliot hotel he told us to take our hand luggage and proceed to the reception, suddenly we was confronted by a stern faced faulty towers type manager, who told us all to get back on the coach so as he could tell us about procedure, you can only imagine the struggle that the old and generally weary passengers carrying all their hand luggage felt like.
The hotel itself wasn’t too bad; there was only one slow old lift so those that could used the stairs did so as it was quicker, the bedroom was adequate and nothing special, the lounge incorporated the bar and the entertainment stage with a small dance floor, there were other places you could relax away from the bar area but the seats weren’t very comfortable, the restaurant was light and aerie and the serving staff were very accommodating, we had a Manchurian lass waiting at our table who was very friendly and even organized for me to have chicken for the evening meal as there wasn’t anything on the menu that I liked for that day.

On the first day excursion the driver tried to speak to us using his microphone but couldn’t get the screeching noise to stop, which I might add played havoc with our ears, so inevitably was not very informative the whole time he was with us. On returning to our hotel at about five fifty, we didn’t have enough time to freshen up and change, let alone time for a drink before being ushered to the restaurant for our meal at six twenty, this happened on the two one day excursions, making it just one mad rush, instead of a leisurely holiday.
Now the worst is yet to come, as on the last day traveling back to Reading, we were told that we must change coaches twenty two miles north of Bristol, there we waited for the other coach to arrive, yet another Aqua coach, only to have to struggle off with all our hand luggage, this being a lot more than we came with, as you buy things for family etc too, then board the other coach with passengers from both getting in every ones way, and waiting for the said drivers to then swop cases from one to another, making us considerably late when joining our feeder coaches, where we all felt very embarrassed getting on board to have so many angry faces staring at us and asking where have we been?
In all this was nearly a holiday from hell, and it will be the last time that we will ever use Alfa travel firm again, and will return to using W A Shearings instead, as they seem to be much more organized and friendly.
From a disgruntled,
Mr & Mrs. Gunn
