Believe me, the previous 2 places we had at, were far superior in Cost, Quality, Food and Service. Far cheaper and much better comfort !! The breakfast choice offered no fruit, no yogurts and a very basic "FULL ENGLISH" breakfast-- PROVIDING you don't want tomatoes, mushrooms or anything that may be out of their scope. They used to do tomatoes,... More

We stayed here earlier this month and were so pleased that we did. We had the room with the four poster bed with brilliant views. It was great being able to sit at the table in the evenings and watch the sunset. Yvonne and Jim are brilliant hosts and nothing is too much trouble. I loved the little packets of... More

Hi, we stay ed here for two days early September 14. Despite the fact the my friend had booked a gorgeous view and amazing room he booked it on the wrong date. The staff at the hotel however were very accomodating and managed to sort out their last remaining room. The room was small and up very narrow steps however... More

I have recently spent 3 nights at Porth Cove as a single traveller and found it to be very good value for money and just as I had expected from the ad. The owners were welcoming, the breakfast good and the room comfortable. The honesty bar was a good idea and I would certainly recommend this hotel and visit again.

Me, my boyfriend and mum decided to enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend on a trip to Newquay. I found this hotel on booking.com and thought the price was reasonable and it seemed to have good reviews. I couldn't agree more with what others have said. The owners were super friendly and accommodating, with a warm welcome. Rooms are nice with... More

We were very happy here - the location is great to explore Cornwall, but not for going out drinking in the centre of Newquay, but who in their right mind would want to do that anyway? Really friendly staff and clean rooms, great cooked breakfasts! Highly recommended.

This was our second 10 night stay at Porth Cove. I cannot speak to highly of our hosts Jim and Yvonne. Lovely clean fresh rooms super views close to the beach and lots of nice walks. Coming back next year.
