3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Bowling Went for bowling while staying at Atlantic reach. Great for bowling but the place stinks and it was dirty. Didnt go into the hotel itself so cant comment about that but as for bowling couldnt wait for our two games to finish as the smell was so uncomfortable

We really enjoyed our night here, we had dinner bed and breakfast, we enjoyed the food and the staff were all lovely except for the older lady on reception that couldnt be bothered when we asked a question and has a face like thunder. The outside pool was lovely, rooms a bit dated but clean. Would stay again

First room ran yellow water in the bath. Spoke to reception who after putting my foot down reluctantly moved us to an alternative room. This room was very similar but no yellow bath water! The floor was very rickety in places and furnishings were old and cheap. It felt like a derelict building trying to be a hotel. The car... More

We booked into the Hotel California partly because it was one of the few hotels that had any rooms and partly because of some of the photos. Having driven through a slightly un-salubrious area of Newquay where things are somewhat run down, we arrived at the unmistakeable HC. It looks exactly like what it is; a remnant of a specific...

You can't dismiss elegance......and this is as much from the owner (Mrs Jones.....I think it was) as it was from the Hotel itself.  Yes it is extremely tired and on a number of levels however, having spent some time with the charming owner on my final morning (this Thurs) I could quite understand her current position. With the country/world still... More

The hotel is set in a lovely position overlooking the estuary and initial outlook seemed good. A little upset that we were placed in a room on a different floor to our daughter. Rooms were dated but seemed clean. On closer inspection found a hair under my pillow and stains on bed sheet. Also used shower cap in bathroom. Was... More

Great position right above the Gannel at Newquay and also a view of the beach. A plus was the bowling alley which is on the premises although it was closed when we got there even though we had booked. The room we had was adequate and had a balcony which was lovely in the evening to stand and take in... More

The smell of damp is evident through... More

A very strange hotel indeed. Upon finally finding it we were faced with what i can only describe as a giant bowl of a car park and a building that looked like it hadn't been lived in, in many years. But upon walking through the rotating doors we were presented with something completely different. a very stylish spacious reception area... More

We stayed in Hotel California for 2 nights, initially it was for 2 nights and then we extended it to another night. The hotel is just minutes away from beach. Our room was excellent, with a conservatory and balcony. The view from the balcony was excellent. Water from the sea fills up the ganal, turquoise crystal clear water looks amazing... More
