On the website this hotel looks funky and fresh but I don't think it is either of them! On arrival the owner showed us to our room gave us no information about the local area, when we had to check out by or anything of any use the only thing she said was if we wanted breakfast we have to... More

I booked the surfside hotel as part of a birthday gift week away for my sister and I. We booked outside of the town centre as my sister is under 18 and we heard the towns can get pretty crazy with stag and hen doo's at night. We definitely made the right decision, fistral beach is beautiful.. It's like being... More

This is a great little place with a really cool owner and amazing views of the beach (in sea view rooms!). We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back. The bar stayed open just for us in the evening and the kids really enjoyed table tennis etc.. This is a simple hotel, but really cool.

Upon arriving to Surfside hotel, we were slightly apprehensive as we had read some pretty negative reviews on TripAdvisor. Arrival included a free parking space on site right in front of the hotel and a warm welcome by the hotel owner (sadly we didn't catch her name). We booked the twin room for 4 nights on booking.com which worked out... More

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
