We first visited the Headland at Easter 1984, with our two very young children. At that time the hotel was in dire need of redecoration and refurbishment, but the food, service, ambience, location and good value prices made up for this. We continued to visit the hotel twice a year until 1990, when prices started to soar and we felt... More

We enjoyed a 3 night break at the beginning of the month with our 3 year old grandson. On this occasion we stayed in a 'splendid suite' which was up on the top floor. Great room with everything you could need and more. It was very windy at night but this added to the atmosphere of being so close to... More

Stayed for two nights last week. It was a present from my Mum for hubby's 60th. We have been coming to Newquay for about 30 years and never thought we would ever get to stay here.

This hotel really does deserve its 4 stars, but offers value for money too, particularly if you pick a deal to suit your stay. We booked through Hotels.Com and upgraded with the hotel, where the staff could not have been more helpful. Unless you have stayed there we suggect you investigate the difference between ocean and bay view rooms. We... More

Good hotel and well situated for accessing Newquay and fistral beach. The spa and lounge areas are excellent and the rooms are to a good standard (some small imperfections for a hotel claiming to be 4 stars). We paid for an ocean room, which was lovely, but due to the time of year the wind and rain was quite loud... More
