We stayed at the Carn Marth for a friend's wedding which was taking place within the hotel. The wedding was lovely, held in the breakfast room, with the reception in the bar area. There was a BBQ on the terrace and the whole day was fantastic.
I would only warn about the standard rooms, which have yet to be refurbished. For this reason I thought it a little pricey at £85 a night (seeing as we had stayed in a much nicer B&B the previous 2 nights in the centre of Newquay for over £20 cheaper!) We got a glimpse of the more expensive rooms which seemed to be refurbished to a high standard, just like the rest of the hotel. Therefore, if you can afford it, go for a more expensive room as the standard rooms are a bit of a let down when you see the rest of the hotel.
The rooms were very small but clean (apart from a rather off-putting stained duvet!) and were equipped wit a flat screen TV and coffee/tea making facilities.
Parking was an issue for us too, as there were large numbers of people for the wedding. The hotel car park only has a few spaces so we needed to park it in 2 different car parks (moving the car by 9am from one car park to another) which cost us an extra £10. The staff didn't seem to know much about the restrictions of the car parks nearby! However, I think this would only be an issue when the hotel is really busy.
The breakfast was nice and the setting of the hotel was lovely. Overall we were happy with our stay, just surprised at the cost, especially comparing it to other B&B's in the area.
