We had originally only arranged to come here as it was cheap and had vacancies and we desperately needed somewhere to stay, but after only the first night we knew we made a good choice. The people are what make this place amazing, there were a lot of instruments available in the bar and after only a couple of hours... More

Jay, What a lovely stay. This is a homely place and you are treated like family rather than a client. A most helpful hostess and the price is absolutely great value. Great place to stay when arriving late at Newquay Airport.

I travelled down to hear 2 years ago to spend a week surfing and I have to say this was a fantastic place. The staff were all great and were always on hand to lend a hand and advise you with any queries I had at a very reasonable price. The staff also made you feel a part of the... More

An inexpensive option for those on a tight budget. Friendly like minded guests and an exceptionally helpful owner who went an extra million miles to help me out when I found myself in a hole entirely of my own dumb doing! An absolute star, I would definitely not have got this help from a concierge at any swanky hotel. If... More

I had a stay during the end of season in Oct-Nov 2012 and all I can say is that the company was excellent and the beds were made and we were waited on hand and feet. There are shared showers and toilets however you do get a wash basin in each room. This is a cheap hotel in an ideal... More

Me and some friends were in Watergate bay for the weekend and stayed at the Watergate Bay Surf Lodge. It is a very nice place to stay, extremely cosy, the people are very friendly and made us feel completely at home. Despite being hostel accommodation, the facilities were in good condition and extremely clean. We had a dorm room (with... More

I have visited the lodge a couple of times, and have never had any problems. I wasn't expecting the indulgent luxury of the £300pn hotels in Watergate, but I was expecting a cheap and friendly way to stay (and surf) at Watergate, and that's exactly what I got. I've been coming to Newquay for years, and this place feels like... More

I recently stayed there as part of a school surfing trip, and had a really great time. The rooms were comfortable, and even with every bunk filled, we had enough space for bags etc. The toilets and showers were always clean and had hot water. Our host was very friendly and gracious, and served a superb breakfast to us every... More

Have just returned from camping here with a friend for 2 nights No, it is not flash, but it was friendly, had hot water, a kettle and was in a nice location. We did not go to the rooms so cannot comment, but I would go back there to camp if I was there for Watergate Bay. The beach is... More

I spent one night here as part of the oneil package surf deal. After this, my friend and I insisted on moving. The ower herself is extremely kind hearted and flexible. The accomodation however is sub-standard, run down, does not seem clean but is disorganised. We were woken up throughout the night but other guests and residents stomping through the... More
