We have stayed at the Minerva for 10 years now and are never disappointed. John and Maxine keep the standards high and make everyone feel so welcome there is no wonder guests return year after year. Excellent rooms, and delicious breakfasts to set you up for the day. We shall return next year. One more point we had to stay... 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

We had no idea what to expect having booked rather late but were really pleased by the location - right next to a perfect surf beach and within easy walk of the town centre. The host John could not have been more helpful, the breakfasts were great and the rooms well equipped and clean. For sure we will book here... More

Newquay is cool and this hotel is cooler, absolutely brilliant. Great welcome, clean, great breakfast and went a step further to make our holiday perfect. Anyone that writes a bad report on this...

We stayed for 2 weeks at The Minerva and wished we could have stayed longer, It is ideally located 2 mins from the beach and walking distance to various shops, pubs and various eating places. The breakfast was delicious each morning and nothing was too much trouble for John or Maxine who are both really friendly and helpful. Our children... More
