I have spent the past four nights in this beautiful hotel and have had the most amazing time, all of the staff were so helpful and impeccable within their job roles, nothing was to much trouble for them I can't praise them enough. The breakfasts were ample with plenty of choice and served in a beautifully layed out dining room... More

Though the hotel rooms are very dated and tired you couldn't ask for better staff!!! Indoor swimming pool was freezing along with the so called hot tub. Breakfast was nice with a lovely view out over the estuary and down to Crantock beach, from the dining room. We paid extra to have an estuary view with balcony, but as it... More

booked direct with hotel, but got 'discount deal' service. booked upper floor balcony view room. first shown to car park facing 'cupboard'. return to reception and had to argue booking, finding email as proof. 2nd room key given, room still uncleaned from previous guests. again reception unapologetic, stating 'busy' and would have to " shuffle things around, making tomorrow difficult....

Myself and my partner recently visited the hotel and upgraded our room to a sun lounger room. The room was very clean and was cleaned every morning without fail. The staff were very friendly and helpful whenever we had a query. The food was also very good, the portions were the right size and were full of flavor. I would... More

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
