My family stayed here for a mid week break last month. The staff were friendly and booked us in at short notice, which we appreciated. Our room was clean and tidy and excellent value for money, we would definitely return here again . The staff were very helpful in advising us of great places to visit with the children. The... More

This is strongly the very worst hotel I've had the mispleasure of staying in. Dirty, smelly, everything was broken (incl beds) or in a totally unacceptable condition. Thankfully I was able to de-louse myself on returning home after the worst 2 nights stay I've encountered. Its wasn't cheap either!

I personally advise NOT to use the hotel, needs some major repair work, door broken, no toilet roll, noisy and not very hygienic, disappointed for the holiday, the staff are nice but the cleaners do not even attempt to ask if you need anything, we also found bugs and black mould on most of the walls.

We have stayed there for one night. The room was very basic, but that was all we need - bed and shower. We couldn't find anything and that was last chance or we could sleep on the beach. The lady was honest with us - she had last two rooms and said that one of them had no bathroom door... More

Our room had no toilet door, no towels, shower was either cold, red hot, or a not working. The walls in room vibrated every time someone used a tap. There was a fight outside our room at 5 in the morning. UHT milk was gone off and no staff around to get fresh milk. Ok we didnt expect much as... More

In contrast to many reviews on here, my stay at the Sutherland was a pleasant experience. A friendly welcome, excellent value and a spacious en-suite room a stones throw from Newquay town centre. The bar is cheap, the room was clean and the booking process very straight forward. My only gripe was loud music from a neighbouring room being played... More

First a reality check, if you are thinking of taking the wife or girlfriend to this place for a romantic/dirty weekend I’d give it a miss and look for another venue because she is likely to be disappointed (unless she downs pints like a rugby player). I would say this hotel is primarily in business to provide a service to... More

Just been with 16 other lads to the Sutherland on my stag do, we were met by a woman in the downstairs bar, she was very friendly and told us all the rules etc... That night, we got back to the hotel at around 3.30 in the morning, where they were happy to still serve us drink! After a few... More
