Arrived to a lovely warm welcoming foyer with a log fire blazing. Check in was efficient and we were soon in our really nice room - their least expensive option (Courtyard room) which was really fine for us - Just a one night quick break. Unfortunately it was dreadful weather - so bad that plans to venture into Newquay to... More

Dear Sarah It sounds as though your visit may have coincided with that of storm Imogen- very wild indeed! I am very glad to see that your own welcome was a warm one and that you liked your Courtyard room and that you enjoyed relaxing in the lounge; the sea views were quite spectacular during the stormy weather.

Last time I visited we were in the Terrace with a dozen friends, this time it was just my wife and I, out of season, in the main restaurant. Pre-dinner we had a cocktail in the bar, a lovely relaxed place with efficient staff who can make a mean Metropolitan. We ate from the £30 for 2 course menu but... More

This was our 2nd stay at the hotel, and it was as lovely as before. But this was the first time we used the spa facility for a couples massage and mud treatment, and it didn't disappoint. The staff were very professional and friendly, the rooms were clean, and the treatment was fantastic. The mud treatment was especially good, and... More

We have been coming to The Headland for over 30 years since we were a young couple with a small child. It has remained under the ownership of the Armstrong family since then. We must have been about the same age at that time. I remember full board, children's teas, entertainment and being intimidated then by the maître d' Mr.... More
