Brilliant place to stay. Mostly family residents. Ample parking. Fantastic breakfast. One minute from shops. One minute from Towan beach.The seclusion of Newquay's own village green. Good honest hospitality - John and Maxine make you really feel at home. Thoroughly recommended. Bob Hunter.

We stayed at the Minerva at the beginning of June 2015 as part of a school trip. Along with 4 staff we had 40 pupils who had a great experience. The rooms suited everyone's needs all with en-suites. The menu suited our pupils and they always left the restaurant full up and happy. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and... More

Fantastic stay at Minerva Hotel. Warm welcome from John on our arrival. Told us all about the area and best places to go with kids. He then took us to our room and £20 extra for a sea view was worth every penny! What a view to wake up to! We couldn't ask for more and Maxine and John couldn't... More

On arrival my friends and I were greeted by John and we immediately felt comfortable and welcome. Our room was clean, bright and airy with the most stunning view of the sea and we had everything the town has to offer right on our doorstep. We had a delicious breakfast each morning where we really got to know John and... More

We stayed at Minerva Hotel over Easter weekend and from the moment we stepped through the door, John went out of his way to make us feel welcome. From helping us find a nearby car park as all the spaces were full, to recommending places to go and lending us his own sat nav as we didn't have our own.... More

A last minute break to Cornwall, a place I visit regularly and love. The Minerva hotel is exactly what it describes itself as, on its own internet site. We arrived very late Thursday night and John met us as if it was the middle of the day which we are very grateful for. The room we had was very nice,... More
