The rooms are spotless with good modern furnishings. The food is top notch and such good value. All the serving staff made the... More

Have visited here quite a few times in previous years and still great as ever. Always book a table - they get very busy! We booked our table and were set up right in the window. The whole family enjoyed their food... I'd highly recommend the belly pork, lamb shoulder and the rump steak with cheese they sometimes put on... More

Breakfast was well cooked and basically anything you wished, freshly cooked... Had Sunday carvery and was well worth the money... Car parking on site... More

We stayed in room 2,(sea view & headland) yes noise can be heard into the night because of the cut thru, ear plugs are great!. The cut thru is also handy for the beaches... More

The Griffin is opposite Wetherspoons and next to Bertie's nightclub, it is right on the high street and "in the thick of it" so it is perfectly situated if you want to get involved in the Newquay nightlife. We were greeted by really friendly staff, we arrived 4 hours early for check in but they had no problem with us... More

Just had a couple of days away staying at the Griffin and in the whole found it to be a great location. Positives first: great room, reception staff friendly and helpful, breakfast ok for price we paid to stay. Room was roasting but we were having a heatwave so it would be churlish to grumble about that and reception did... More

The best fish&chips in Newquay!!! Great fresh fish with amazing mashed peas with fresh mint. Highly recommended!! Will definitely return and dine in again as it is well worth the money. Really good service.

Another lovely meal. Value for money. Friendly staff. Meal hot good wholsome home made food beer good as well. Always happy to help with any special dietary request. Out far enough from the main town if you enjoy a more sedate evening.
