My mother and i stayed at this hotel as close to wedding venue we was going to. The staff was very friendly and helpful, to the point off allowing us to take the room before check in time, and ringing taxis for us, as well as supplying extra milk as im big tea drinker. the room was very clean and the beds well we where sad not to take them home with us as super comfortable and refreshing to have decent and good pillows. Also there was tea/coffee facitites, hairdryer, also nice touch was an alarm clock, tv, radio heated towel rail with towels and complimenty shampoo and soaps. from the reception, bar and waiters we found very polite and gave us a warm welcome. the breakfast in the morning was unbelievable as again few more items added then expected. Definalty would recommend this hotel and stay again , for the price charged for this hotel we was pleasantly surprised to all the thoughfulness shown. the view is also second to none we faced a huge golf course and Fistcal Bay

really enjoyed our stay, our room no 28 fantastic view , exceptionally clean and decor lovely. As far as the cooked breakfast it was really well cooked and very filling with extra toast cereal fresh fruit and yoghurts for you to just take, im very critical of food as im a cook! all the staff were very friendly and helpful in everyway. Also the evening meals available were lovely and well priced, plenty of people not staying at the hotel eating here. The hotel is well positioned for fistral beach and the lovely coastal walks, we walked for a lovely 3 and a half hours with some amazing views. and only 15 min walk approx into newquay town centre. we were glad we chose this hotel as its in a quiet position and not in the middle of what is locally known as party street. We found the hotel great value for money for what we paid for 4 nights bed and breakfast it was amazing and compered well with hotels we had stayed in , in bournemouth and brighton that were twice the price. cant understand earlier comment about length of beds as ours was a normal lenght bed you would have at home. I know from speaking to staff at the hotel that a lot of building work will be taking place in the winter, enlarging rooms and redecorating to make the rooms more comfortable. also on there website the rooms clearly are priced economy too best. We really were thinking about staying the rest of the week but due to family issues we had to come home and were really upset to be leaving but will definatly be back. Also Pat the nightporter was a brilliant source of information about the area , pubs and all things newquay

so thanks to Will and his staff for a lovely stay !

Room Tip: front of hotel does have views over the golf course and fistral beach , but back of hotel has views...

Tiny "double room and the bed was ridiculously small and very uncomfortable. Bath was half sized (???) and it was just so very basic in every way. I have honestly stayed in far better Travelodges and Premier Inns for less than half the price. My advice is to stay at The Atlantic Hotel 5 mins away, as apparently the rooms are similar in price. Do not stay at the Carnmarth unless you are really desperate. Even breakfast was very disappointing. Views aren't even that great.

All our beds are contract quality and standard uk sizes (all 6'3" long). It is such a shame that if someone is not happy with anything in the hotel that they do not let us Know at the time so that we may have the chance to address any issues to everyones satisfaction.

We found the room to be very small and even at only 5th 2" my feet dangled off the end of the 'double bed'. Walls are paper thin so u can hear every conversation from adjoining rooms. Unsure what other rooms are like, but it appears that they haven't thought about space and comfort for their guests, in order to flush the toilet u have to be prepared to scrape your hand alongside the sink. Great shame.

My partner and i stayed here for three nights. The main reason we booked it was because it had mainly good reviews and it was one of the cheaper hotels in newquay. After having stayed there i cannot fault it - our room looked straight over Fistral beach and was a couple of minute walk down to the beach itself. After having walked round Newquay and seeing the location of some of the comparable hotels that we had viewed prior to booking, we definitely made the best choice! The staff are friendly, especially the younger ladies at breakfast, as were the staff in the hotel bar/restaurant. The rooms weren't massive but they were well kept and clean and were serviced everyday. There was a good variety of food on offer at breakfast and the staff were quick to serve you with a smile and a helpful demeanor. One of the nights we ate at the hotel restaurant and the food was lovely - very well priced and big portions - more like restaurant food than food you would get in a hotel. The hotel is a few minute walk from the main centre but the selling point is definitely the view of the beach. We will definitely be back!

Our 3 night trip to Newquay, staying at the Carn Marth hotel was fantastic. We stayed in a standard double room which was very clean, good size and although at the back of the hotel, still had a lovely view. The staff were, without exception, friendly, pleasant and above all, helpful. The food is excellent and the Terrace is lovely. Depending on what you want, Headland Road is a great location, more ideal for couples I would say. All in all I can't wait for my next stay at the Carn Marth hotel.
