Had an absolutely amazing time and cannot wait to return! I was excited to visit the hotel with it being the location for one of my favourite childhood films - The Witches! We had specifically looked for a dog friendly hotel and I have to say that they are most certainly this - our dog loved it! The hotel has... More

We have traveled the UK numerous times and decided that a tour of Cornwall would be interesting. We search for the best location to tour from as well as the location offering some upscale qualities. Newquay and The headland was our choices. Could not have been happier with either choice. The staff was really great and the cottage and the... More

Decided to treat ourselves to a night at the Headland. Positives: - Held our biking gear even though the room was not ready when we arrived, meaning we could change and go for a wall - Reception staff very friendly and helpful - Dinner was delicious and as we'd pre-booked, was only £25 each, well worth it. Staff at dinner... More

An enjoyable lunch with a stunning view across the beach. Not the cheapest lunch but very attentive staff who asked the chef for any alternative foods for my wife who is a diabetic. Several small rooms where you relax after your meal. Usually local food is available. There is also an outside seating area.

We had booked the pre-Christmas break for two nights. We have stayed in the Headland cottages before, but this was our first time staying in the hotel. The room was clean and cosy, the breakfast was superb and the festive afternoon tea with mulled pimms was amazing. They had gone to considerable effort to decorate the place with traditional Christmas... More
