Me and my partner stayed here in September 2012, in one of their suites over looking the beach with the private balcony. It was lovely :) Huge spacious room with a big four poster bed and massive bathroom!

What a wonderful review and surprise, it sounds like a perfect proposal! We are lucky to have a number of four poster rooms and suites but a few less balconies. Congratulations to the both of you and thank you for choosing to celebrate such a special moment with us. More

Rooms, food, views. Excellent . Our room faced the sea with the surfers on Fistral beach to our left and the headland to the right. Though this was January we were lucky with the weather so we walked the coast path a lot. This made the return to the hotel even better. We will return......

Such a pleasure- family run business, exceptional customer service, food is excellent, rooms luxurious, and new spa is lovely.It is such a relaxing and comforting stay here, winter or summer. Everything about it has a magic touch.

I booked a stay at the cottages as a birthday treat for my dad, it needed to be perfect is he has stayed at this hotel for over 20 years but hasn't been for a few years. Well what can I say, it is a fantastic holiday from start to finish. The staff are great, nothing is too much trouble.... More

Thank you very much for your review which was lovely to read, and I am delighted that it was a success, especially for your father who was being treated and having not stayed recently.

We spent a perfect week-end at the Headland hotel in early November this year. It was a special birthday treat and really ticked all the boxes. The location is second to none, our room overlooked the ocean! The staff are all very friendly and helpful, the communical rooms are tastefully decorated, with warm open fires and cosy sofas.

The Headland is in a great position. Great coastal walks and beaches on the doorstep. Ample parking, friendly staff and as dog owners we are always made welcome. We have been several times and will return. It is Newquay's best hotel and is great for all ages with excellent facilities as one would expect of a four star hotel.

Thank you for a lovely review and it is wonderful that you feel so welcome each time you visit, as well as your dog of course. We recognise how much more complete a short break or holiday feels when your family friend is alongside you, especially with the beautiful Fistral Beach below!

We stay at the Headland Hotel every October, I only wish we could go more often. The staff are wonderful; friendly and professional, they go out of their way to make sure your stay is perfect and they are fantastic with the children.

The Headland is a grand Victorian hotel with the best position for the beach and ocean. We arrived and were shown around the hotel which was a lovely touch and made us feel welcome straight away. It was lovely to see that the hotel retains the Victorian grandness but with modern facilities. There are several things that make this hotel... More

Thank you for a truly wonderful view, and I am delighted to read your appreciation of the hotel's grandness but also how it manages so well to meet the more contemporary in certain areas, such as the new Wellness Area. We are continuously introducing even higher specification bathrooms and have completed many to date. Please do mention your preference for... More

We escaped City life and headed on a long journey to Newquay. Having not visited this part of the Country since childhood I suppose we were somewhat nervous of what may greet us (and having recently spent a sunny weekend in Tenerife we were sure it would not compare). What a stunning hotel the Headland is - although in the... More
