“4* should be 5*”
Reviewed 10 May 2013 via mobile

Truly the most stylish hotel in Newquay, stayed here before the refurb when it was lovely but now it's esquisite. The views are unbeatable, the staff are fabulous and accomadating and the facilities second to none. The food we ate was 5* and the restaurant service we couldn't fault! Since our last visit over a year ago they have opened a hair salon, it looked very cute and well set up.
Rooms so comfortable, a very good stay. Well done fistarl beach hotel

Located out of the town, besides you would not find it easy to park in the town centre, the hotel is located on the edge of a bay that allows you to see the surfers that surf through the low & high tides. The room I had was very spacious with a huge bathroom. It is very modern throughout with a dining room with ocean views and the dinner and breakfasts were well prepared. Because it is out of town (probably 5 minutes to the main car parks) there is plenty of parking available.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony so you can sit comfortably outside.

A lovely hotel in a wonderful situation.
The beach views from the bedroom, restuarant and bar are so relaxing that it was easy to idle an hour or two just looking out enjoying a coffee, breakfast, lunch or evening meal.
Enjoyed the location immensely and if ever we are back in this location we would like to return to the Fistral Beach - providing someone in the kitchen has learnt to cook scrambled eggs properly!

Room Tip: Book a sea view room - you won't be disappointed at the extra cost.

I booked this surprise for a birthday and we had never been there before. From the moment we arrived at the hotel the staff were very helpful and friendly. We had room 201 which had a view of the beach which was outstanding. We found the food was very high standard and the view of the beach from the restaurant was enchanting.

The Spa and pool was just so relaxing. The treatments were very indulgent and we felt totally spoiled.

The whole hotel was spotless and the staff were very friendly and polite.

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone. We will certainly be back. THANKS

We had a lovely time at this hotel. The location is amazing, right by the beach where surfing is so popular, what an experience that is! The Hotel is recently done up, everything looks and feels new, the bedrooms are decorated in a beach meets city style. The staff were without exception helpful and chirpy, they have hit the right balance between a relaxing informal vibe, but actually with quality service. The food was excellent breakfasts had a large and varied selection and evening meals were well cooked and presented, the restaurant and bar overlook the sea and are also modern. The spa is the best I have visited, just what we needed after a morning surfing for the first time.

Room Tip: We saved a lot by choosing a non sea view room.

We stayed for a long weekend in April 13 and could not fault this hotel, it's staff or its location. we had our two year old with us and the staff made our stay a pleasure with a spacious room for the cot, cot bedding and were always on hand to accommodate our needs for children's breakfasts etc. We could not fault our room, it was spotless, spacious, comfy, luxurious and had stunning sea views. The Spa is superb and swimming pool and hot tub totally relaxing. Would most definitely stay again, the staff make all the difference they have a human touch and are very approachable and friendly.

My wife and I spent four nights at the Fistral Beach Hotel and Spa.We had a 'best' room on the third floor with balcony and great views across Fistral Bay. Both the (large) bathroom and bedroom had patio doors allowing uninterrupted views from bed or loo. The room was spotless and bed very comfortable .
The spa has a wide range of treatments and lovely comfortable treatment areas. My wife says if compares favourably with Champneys and Ragdale Hall. The swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna were great, clean and very taste fully fitted.
We eat breakfast and dinner in the hotel. There was a big choice of cooked breakfast plus cereal, breads, etc. The dinner menu was good. The only area I was possibly not 100% about our visit was the portion size at dinner, particularly of deserts. The food was more designer than filling. Service in the dining room, reception and spa was first class, friendly but not over done.
A great stay, in our case, for a special birthday. We would not hesitate to recommend and hope to return soon.

Room Tip: All bedrooms at the front of the hotel will have a sea view across Fistral Bay, some second floor an...
