Sat on the cliff top overlooking Fistral Beach and the Atlantic Ocean this well appointed hotel is a must for anyone wanting a break where you feel you have been somewhere really special. The comfort, service and standard of cleanliness were first class. Well done the staff at Headland Hotel

I came here in May with my other half and parents. As soon as we arrived I knew this was going to be a great stay. Lovely people on reception, didn't talk to them much but I'm sure if you needed help with anything they'd be helpful. The bar area is lovely however I would say overpriced but it is... More

A grand old hotel in a nice position; although it clearly has and is being updated it lacks any wow factor. very suitable for business groups or coach parties. The rooms are OK, but lack much colour co-ordination. Beds are comfortable and fittings adequate, but that's about it. The spa and pool area are nice however, and up to date.... More

I absolutely love this hotel. I love everything about it especially the setting in which it is set and the beautiful old building. I stayed here early June with my husband and 6 year old daughter. We had a coastal view family room which suited us perfectly. Breakfast was truly amazing with so much to choose from. We had dinner... More

We loved this hotel even though we were there for a short time for our son's 22nd Birthday. We arrived and had a lovely lunch in the Terrace then a walk on Fistral Beach. Afternoon tea on the verandah on very comfy sofas in the sun was wonderfully relaxing. We had a great dinner in the restaurant and were particularly... More

We had a great stay (2 nights) at the Headland with VIP spa day on the saturday. Our room, on the third floor overlooked Fistral Beach and the main 'noise' we had was the sound of the waves breaking on the beach. The room was very spacious with a lounge area that could be closed off from the bedroom. The... More

Probably the best hotel we have stayed in, staff excellent,room excellent, my pet hate is dirt bathroom tile grout and bath sealant, not a mark in site, had a sea view suite, with double doors to separate bedroom from sofa area, great idea as I'm a bit of a night TV watcher

We were really impressed with everyone who made our wedding a day to remember. All the staff were wonderfully and it is an amazing hotel, I would recommend anyone to have a wedding there. I will certainly go to the Headland again.

We had the Ocean view Spa weekend, with dinner one night, breakfasts & treatments all included in the package. Everything was amazing! The dinner was really tasty. One breakfast was served to your room. The treatments were really relaxing, as was the whole experience. Felt truly pampered and spoilt by all the staff. So good, didn't want to leave!

The staff at reception were attentive and professional. They showed us around. Staff were helpful and friendly but service at dinner in private room was not great. One meal did not arrive, drinks were delayed at one end of table. Cocktail making was fun and staff very good but too expensive £30 to make two! Treatment (massage) ordinary but spa... More
