I booked this hotel before I read trip advisor reviews. Some of the photographs and comments persuaded me that I had made a bad mistake and would just endurne my one night stay or even book into another hotel. Wrong! This is a lovely hotel with unbelievable views of the estuary and beach. There are two swimming pools, outdoor terrace... More

We attended a wedding at this hotel, which was a great, with lovely food and good service. However, we booked a family room so we could all stay and it was like being in a different hotel. First off, we had to bring our own travel cot - not a huge problem, but nevertheless, a bit of a pain especially... More

Further to the comments of 77146 (see review below), I'd like to add a few more comments as the mother of the bride. The honeymoon suite is a reasonably sized room but doesn't have any wow factor - it's just a pleasant room that could do with a bit of a face lift. I've stayed in similar at a Travelodge,... More

Stayed here for a short getaway as a couple,the hotel is beautiful, though looking from the outside and surrounding area you could be forgiven for thinking the worse. Ok in a few areas it is a bit dated and neglected but on a whole it is a delight. The double room we had although very compact with a tiny bathroom... More

Been to the hotel 3-4 years ago and thought it looked tired. Booked a short break three weeks ago and had a great surprise. The hotel had been through an upgrade and looked great. The lounges and the restaurant were first class and all the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Rooms were what you would hope for in a... More

We won a stay at the hotel with a three course meal and champagne as part of an online auction. When we arrived in Newquay it was quite a trek to the hotel which would have been fine but the closer we got the more worries we got as there were derelict hotels, buildings, and building sites really close by....

We stayed here for 3 nights after finishing a stretch of the south west coast path. The view of the Gannal is amazing and it's a short walk to Fistral. The facilities are great if you bear in mind they're not brand new. The price of the stay including breakfast was good although the bowling is a bit expensive, the... More

The man(ager) who we dealt with when planning our reception failed to keep track of what had been agreed, on the day several things occurred that spoilt our day starting at the end of the wedding breakfast; these included locking away children's gifts in an an office that were supposed to be left behind the bar (staff were unaware), not...

My daughter and husband had their wedding reception at the California on May 2nd. This was the perfect venue. The lounge and dining area are out of this world with views over the Gannel. The meal was excellent with service equally so. A separate play area had been set aside for children. The evening reception was held in the ballroom... More

People like to complain a lot, but this place is pretty sweet, really nice staff, wonderful view and clean luxurious rooms. The location is brill! However, the biggest asset to this place is excellent value for money, I would stay here 10 times out of 10!
