I must admit, I have never stayed in accommodation geared up for stag parties before so didn't really know what to expect. I did however think that it would be a little tired and dirty due to this. This couldn't be further from my expectation. It was clean, tidy and very well presented. The bar was a great center point to the accommodation. Great sound system and hang out area. We also tried the Thai restaurant during our stay which far exceeded our expectations. The food was stunning! Very authentic and full of flavour.

Gerry and his team have made a very stressful stag weekend (due to there being 27 of us) really smooth running and enjoyable. I think I've been very lucky to have found this excellent accommodation.

I would definitely recommend The Escape to any stag or hen party. Don't waste your time with the other hotels in Newquay.

Hi Kris
I couldn't possibly take all the credit for your stag party going so well as you really gave 100 % the whole weekend:).
You and matt have a good bunch of friends and its always easy work when we have good guests.
Thanks mate for a really amazing review.
Hope that our paths cross again one day :)
Gerry.

We stayed at the escape for a hen weekend, Gerry and Tim made sure as soon as we got there that we were comfortable and having a good time! The rooms we adequate for what we needed (a bed to sleep in and a shower to clean up in) but very clean!
The bar was pretty much open the whole time we were there so when we got bk from a night out we could carry on :)
We were very well looked after and very much enjoyed our stay! We would defiantly come back, worth every penny especially when ur joined by other guests also celebrating!!

all I can say is this place is brilliant, Gerry and Tim, were just the best, they looked after us so well, I will certainly be going back here for a girls weekend, the rooms are basic but that is all you need when you go to newquay, it is perfect location

I was slightly apprehensive after booking this place for a hen party, because when you're in charge of organising, you don't want anyone to have an awful time. But, it literally couldn't have been any better. Gerry and Tim looked after us all weekend. The rooms were basic but clean and that's all we needed. The bar was always open and a great atmosphere. It was in the perfect walking distance to town. The food in the Thai restaurant next door was delicious. Like the other reviews state, this is not somewhere to go if you're not looking to party. But it was everything we needed for a messy hen weekend in Newquay. Thank you Gerry and Tim :)

This will be a short review as the other reviews pretty much say what i experienced. First and foremost this is a great hostel catering for stag and hen parties. If you are on your honeymoon or treating the Mrs to a few days away you dont book in here! We were a group of 23 staying in this 130 odd capacity hostel. As soon as we arrived Gerry put on the music and opened the bar. The bar was then open until we left 3 days later! Gerry is a nice bloke with a nice friendly team. The rooms are no nonsense, clean and functional - that is what we wanted - nothing to break means no lost deposits! Close to town - great breakfast - reasonable booze range and prices and thats all you need from it! I would stay here again for sure if i was in Newquay on another stag do...cheers Gerry and the team!

Room Tip: Talk to Gerry direct to get the room best suited to your party

Brilliant Stag and Hen Weekend Venue!!!

Just back from my brothers stag weekend with 13 other comrades. Foreseeing the antics, costumes and heavy drinking ahead I was apprehensive about finding a suitable basecamp for our group. Off the back of previous experiences on similar weekends we all surprised to have found the best and most appropriate, issue free stag accommodation any of us had stayed in.

All staff were awesome, especially the manager and host Gerry who was supper friendly and conscientious, offering a comprehensive 5* service at B&B prices! Our room was basic and clean (on arrival :) ), food was top quality and the more importantly the bar and music was on and available round the clock.
