Another year, another visit to the headland cottages and they never fail to disappoint. Visited the spa for a few treatments and service was outstanding. The hotel service was also excellent Ordered a essentials bag from trevilly farm shop, everything was ready for us when we arrived in the cottage and the quality of the food was fantastic - highly...

We have just spent 5 nights at this wonderful majestic hotel and have been blown away by the whole experience. The staff were attentive and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The meals in The Restaurant were out of this world, and the room was fabulous with amazing Atlantic Ocean views. Although it is plush and opulent there is... More

This is an excellent hotel. I loved the Victorian features and the location is amazing. The choice at breakfast exceeded expectation and the food quality was very good. I enjoyed my meal in the small resturant and the view across Fistral was appreciated. One of us has coeliac and this was catered for with ease. I think it's fantastic that... More

A weekend treat in Newquay, Cornwall, in January - well why not. Chose this place on the basis of its Location, and it seemed the best of 'a bunch', it had space, and it fitted the budget. It is an imposing (aka huge) building in classic Victorian style, drawing one's mind back to a heyday of yesteryear. It was visited... More

A striking and impressive hotel in an excellent location with friendly and helpful staff. I had one of the less costly rooms with a view of the kitchen roof but, it was clean, warm and comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent with good food, ample portions and very attentive waiting staff, although a little too formal for my personal... More

The Headland staff are excellent in every way and a credit to the owners. We came back a 2nd time after staying in the hotel last year but this time chose to stay in one of the cottages. 5* is what they truley are, and even though they are not cheap, in my opinion they are worth every penny.

We last stayed at the Headland over Christmas when they were clearly pulling out all the stops. But the service in a quiet mid-week in May was just as good - if not better. Great consistency throughout the hotel from the moment you walked through the front door. The views from the restaurant as the sun goes down over the... More
