Our family stayed at The Esplanade for the second time in two years, due to our amazing, family friendly experience with the hotel during our last holiday in Newquay. We stayed in a family room which we were astounded by- with it's double bed, two single beds and a sofa(bed) we found ourselves in a spacious and homely room and... More

We stayed as a couple with no children over bank holiday in August for three nights. First and most importantly the negatives, 1) room facilities very standard and dated despite recent refurbishment, 2) walls are so thin we could hear every work spoken (amongst other things) from the family next door which isn’t very pleasant and quite frankly ruined our...

This hotel is on the South end of Fistral beach and the view from the restaurant/entrance are beautiful. This is a very family oriented hotel, so if you are looking for a quiet place to stay, this probably isn't for you. Never the less I can't really fault much about this place, food was to a much higher standard than... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Had a 1st floor room facing the play area. Rooms really could benefit from having air conditioning. Ours was quite stuffy. A fridge would also have been nice. You have to request and leave deposit but none were available. Also, flooring very creaky had lots of noise from room above. Had to request room to... More

Pros: Incredible views of Fistral Beach, friendly, welcoming staff, lovely bar and restaurant areas, great pool and kids play area. Cons: Rooms look dated despite possibly having a recent refurb. The bathrooms in particular are dreary and our room (239) had a whistling shower with huge variations in water pressure with a very dull main light. The shower fitted, whilst... More
