Spent a lovely weekend at the Headlands hotel, stayed 17th till 19th April. My partner organised the trip as a suprise birthday gift. Well I was not disappointed! The hotel is stunning and set against the glorious cornish coastline. The hotel interior is just as good. Think Agatha Christie and you wouldn't be far wrong! Entering the lobby through a... More

Just as lovely a stay as the first time but now the spa is completely finished it was great to see what they've done. We really can't fault our stay apart from maybe the windows on the land side need a clean? I'm sure they are on to that though! What makes this hotel stand out is the fact that... More

As we always do, we booked a 3 bedroom cottage with a large dog package. Alas, a week before the holiday our old boy died. We still needed a break, & as we had always taken him to the headland hotel, we thought it was a fitting memory to go back. We were greeted like old friends by Marilyn, with... More

Stayed for 3 nights in the beginning of April. Location is great, right by the sea with stunning view of the coast and Fistral beach. You can go for a walk or run on the beach or on the trail going to Newquay, and in general for outdoor activities. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Great food in the restaurant and... More

We stayed for four nights in a one bedroom cottage/apartment. The accommodation was amazing large entrance area, four poster bedroom with dual aspect large bathroom with good powerful shower and natural day light.

Stayed here for 3 nights last weekend. There is nothing really to complain about except that it didn't have the wow factor for me, but it's still really nice.
