Me and my girlfriend stopped here in July 2014 for 5 nights. We was really happy with the hotel, we had a cracking view of the beach/ sea (we paid for the premium room with a view) but definitely worth it. The room itself was very clean with everything we needed, the carpet/ wardrobe was a little old fashioned and... More

We booked a budget room (239) mid week and hit it lucky with a beautiful sea view and although basic and fairly small we were not in the room long enough to justify upgrading. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The room took a fair while to find as it was down lots of corridors but the view was... More

We stayed for 2 nights in March. We read mixed reviews so were apprehensive - we needn't have been! We booked a superior room as it was only slightly more in price and so glad we did. Massive room with sea views that were amazing would recommend you to go for the superior room without a doubt. The weather was... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a premium room with a sea view. Great breakfast & very friendly staff, rooms very clean & comfortable. Room 115 had a sea view but did have some floor board noise from the room above.

I came here for breakfast last week. The food was quite nice. Maybe a little standard for a hotel. The wait for food wasn't long either. We didn't have a coffee as we planned to as the barrista told us there was a 20 minute wait on coffee. Not sure Why there was such a wait. It was reasonably priced... More

Me and my partner stayed here for 2 nights mid week. We found the hotel was lovely and very welcoming, I unfortunately did not pay for a sea room (which I wish I had) as the room was right above the kitchen (rather noisy between 6am-10pm) and was out looking the back yard (which the chefs would stand and chat...

This was my 3rd stay at the Great Western. By now the Hotel became something like our Cornish home. Whenever we come to Cornwall from Germany we stay at the Great Western. It is perfecty situated on a high cliff at the beach. We enjoy the wonderful sea view premium rooms furnished in bright and warm colours as much as... More

Very clean and modern rooms with excellent views. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. The bar and restaurant food was excellent and mostly all local produce. Have recommended it others, if we went back to Newquay we would stay there again!

Excellent hotel. Don't be fooled by the exterior. Such attention to detail! The customer service we received was brilliant, couldn't fault the place. Staying here again this month and I already can't wait :)

Booked a room with sea view which was also same level as grass terrace. People could see straight into our room. Very noisy floorboards outside room and double room was basically two single beds pushed together. £80 without breakfast was not worth it. Also room very dated.. Will never use this hotel again. .
