The best feeling I had from my stay in Newquay was knowing that I wouldn't be spending another night in the awful bed. The room was so tiny. Felt as if I was sleeping in a cupboard. A couple were in the room next door to me and I could hear every movement and conversation. The walls were so thin... More

After having this trip booked for us as a treat it was anything but that, we were greeted and taken up to our room which was nothing at all like any pictures advertised. After paying £55 reduced from £99 we were given a room that had no en-suite, no sea view and no working television, although we were told if... More

Wanted somewhere to stay by the beach in Newquay - didn't expect it to be as nice and homely as it turned out to be. When you wake in the morning and first thing you see is the vast surf, then get up and enjoy a good breakfast, in a clean environment , what more could one ask for. Will... More

Where do I start or end this story. If the reason to book a room is only for a booze night out or want just a quick sleep then this is fine. Anything else, avoid. My complaints are similar as many others so please take this advice Bed too small, window dirty so not a pretty view on the sea,... More

Excellent location for the price, its right on the beach which is hard to find. Clean rooms, good continental breakfast, owners and staff very friendly and welcoming. We saw that the reviews were mixed before we stayed but thought we'd give it a go and were very impressed, don't know what everyone is complaining about. Great bar with good atmosphere... More

I stayed with 2 other friends and we were lucky to get a room with fabulous views of the beach. The facilities were pretty basic but clean. We used this as a base for exploring Cornwall so didn't spend much time in the hotel. There is a lovely terrace to enjoy a drink but it was too windy and cool... More

I have never felt strongly enough to place a review before, but on this occasion I feel that I need to share our experience at this hotel - one we definitely will not be repeating. We booked a long weekend over the August Bank Holiday weekend as the hotel accepted dogs and as we had left it to the last... More

Just returned after a wonderful break staying at Surfside. Was well looked after by the owners both upon arrival and during stay. Breakfast hit the spot with cereals, juice, tea/coffee and toast. Room whilst small was acceptable, had comfy beds and clean. Room was serviced daily. Views across Fistral Beach are spectacular. Ate in the hotel one night. Both adults... More

I can't imagine very the good ratings are coming from. (beside the view). I can confirm all disadvantages writen already. - City not as near as promoted - although I paid 50% in advance, I had to pay the rest before getting to the room. - filthy, don't look at any hidden spaces; bed itself was clean - bath: we...
