We went for 2 nights to join our family who were on a longer deal.The place was busy and our room was basic but all round we had no complaints and enjoyed our stay. The coach groups are an entertainment in themselves!We will certainly go again.

My second brief stay this year at this hotel - I also came in August. Booked a single room but both times was upgraded to a spacious double with modern en-suite. The room was clean & comfortable, although this time they forgot to clean the room! No problems with thin walls in the room itself, but in the en-suite I could hear every word the 2 guys in the adjacent room were saying - very interesting! Decor generally is a bit dated with scuffed walls although that didn't bother me. The staff were friendly but reception not always manned, I often had to wait several minutes for my room key at different times of day, which was a bit annoying.
Breakfast was buffet style, with reasonable choice of food & plenty of everything.
The hotel location is good, only a few minutes' walk from town & beaches but in a reasonably quiet road. Overall, I felt it was good, basic accommodation & good value for money, especially with the room upgrade.

Room Tip: Ask for a room situated away from the bar/entertainment, the sound carries & is very noisy.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am sorry you had to wait at reception for the length of time you had to. The reception is manned 24/7, I can only imagine the Duty Receptionist was called away from the desk to deal with another customer. I am glad that your overall experience was a positive one and hope you will come back to visit us again.

Went on the Travelzoo Dinner Bed & Breakfast offer from 17th to 21st September & had a great time. We had room 303 on Ground Floor which had a double & single bed ( we didn't need the single but they were pretty full with 2 coach trips & at the time of booking had no doubles left).Room was clean & warm & bathroom had a bath but no shower & was cleaned daily. Location was good, not too far to walk into town & there's a local Tesco metro about 50 yards from the hotel which was handy for anything we had forgotten. Three course meals in the evening & help yourself breakfast all included in the deal for £30 per person per night which we thought was excellent value for money especially as you had a good choice of meals each day and the menu changed daily. What made the stay so good for us was the staff & the fantastic service they provided. Sandy Lodge Hotel, I think is a 2 star hotel but we have stayed in 4 or 5 star hotels that could take lessons in service from Sandy Lodge because we could not fault it. Yes, maybe the hotel could do with a lick of paint or rooms decor be upgraded but that did not detract from our stay as the room itself was spotlessly clean & warm. Staff were all very welcoming & friendly & could not do enough for you. We had a good laugh & banter with Nev the restaurant manager who had a great sense of humour & made sure everyone was fed in good time despite being so busy.
We would not hesitate in going again especially on a deal as good as this.
Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable.

I booked a 4 day solo break online with B&B + dinner for £120 at the Sandy Lodge at the end of August. Friendly reception on arrival, and the place was obviously popular with coach trips. My room was small with a tiny TV and a small shower room which was immaculate. I was comfortable, and the room was serviced to a good standard daily. The food was excellent, fresh hot meals, plenty of choice and generous portions. The service was really efficient and helpful throughout, and the bonus for me was the heated pool and jacuzzi which were lovely. On the down side, thin walls and non-existent view from my room, but altogether an enjoyable stay and very good value for money. (5 minutes walk to the seafront, and 10 to Newquay centre)

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Unfortunately the hotel faces from East to West so we do not benefit from sea views as some of our competitors do, on a positive note we can't then charge our customers for the privelege!!

Thank you for the good scores on your review, our walls are thinner than we would like in some areas of the hotel but I truly hope this did not detract too much from your overall experience at our hotel.
