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.

The hotel had it's own private off road parking with a nice block paved drive leading up to the hotel entrance. The staff were all helpful and made you feel welcome, I had a comfy double on suite room which was kept clean and tidy. The breakfast (included in the price) was excellent and set you up for the day.... More

Was staying in Newquay last week and found this lovely place. It is a pub and a hotel on the top of the cliff overlooking one of the surfing bays just outside the town centre. We did not stay at the hotel but stopped off to use the restaurant. Bargain lunch of fish & chips @ 2 for £10 was... More
