We took 41 Police Cadets from Bodmin and Newquay units bowling, and with our leaders on Tuesday 16th December, and with our leaders filled all forty eight places on the lanes. Great time, with appropriate music, great choice of food and good pricing, well looked after by Paul and the staff; highly recommended. We have already booked for next year... More

Bought with groupon deal. Good value for the money we spent. Not for people who are fussy. Nice cheap getaway. In great area of Newquay . Rooms need serious updating . Great view of river . Food seems ok but probably not fresh but lovely free bread rolls to be had.

I was in a party of 40 people at a Christmas party night in 2014. We had a lovely meal and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had comfortable rooms with a great breakfast. Every one in our party thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I would recommend The Hotel California.

I stayed here with a group of 7 others. It is true the hotel needs a lick of paint and all rooms we stayed in needed an update. However the food, ambience and service were faultless both at dinner and breakfast. Stunning views, excellent value for money. On the whole would definitely stay again and the main issue is with...

Had a christmas meal at this hotel last night and just wanted to say what a lovely, welcoming hotel it . Having "won" this evening via an auction site it didn't cost very much but it would have been worth every penny of the true price. The meal was well presented, cooked well and the waiters/waitresses really on the ball... More

I think the first thing I have to get off my chest as a regular visitor to this hotel, what do people expect for their money. Seriously! I know it isn't the cheapest hotel, but then try and find somewhere for the same price in Newquay. The hotel has a swimming pool, indoors and outside, hairdressers, a bowling alley, a... More

This hotel is tired in parts and needs updating. It is however clean and the staff friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is basic, clean and the menu was limited due to being on a Groupon Deal. The food served was excellent! The room was basic with no frills which was expected due to being on a deal but unfortunately the... More

...but not to stay. The staff are very nice, the reception, restaurant and bar are lovely but the bathrooms need updating urgently. I stayed for two weeks (excluding the weekends) and it's really nice except for the tired rooms. Easy to find, loads of parking and good views of the estuary and coast if you get a good room. (You...

Had a great time at the hotel. the staff are all so helpful and never "in your face". Will stay again. Breakfast is great, in a very large and bright dining room. Function room great. Parking good. Prices competitive.
