Just returned from a 3 day break after staying at the Great Western Hotel. We stayed in a Superior room. Great value, amazing view, really comfortable. I have paid more to stay in 4 star hotels and not been as happy. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The food is well cooked and good. The breakfast is very... More

All the delights of the Great Western are hidden around the back. It boasts one of the most stunning panoramic views of Newquay Bay along the coast from the restaurant. We go there for breakfast, for a table with a view. All the ingredients of the breakfast are local and they serve the tea in pots and the coffee in... More

Just returned from a very enjoyable and great value for money weekend, made all the better by the tremendous customer service. St. Austell Brewery have an excellent reputation and the company should be very proud of its staff at The Great Western Hotel. The reception, bar, room and waiting staff were individualy and collectively first class. Without exception they were... More

A big party of us stayed for a weekend of fun !!! and without doubt that is exactly what we got. As accustomed our tour leader knocked it out of the ball park with the best organisation and attention to detail. However this year the hotel and staff backed him up and delivered their own chunk of excellence. Views are... More

Spent a long weekend at the Great Western Hotel with a group of friends, had a great time in a very comfortable environment. Room had a fantastic sea view and we really enjoyed the food and service they provided throughout our stay. Good value for money.

Stayed at The Great Western for one night, 2 adults and 1 infant. Hotel looks nice from the outside- parking limited and costs £5. Receptionist was friendly and helpful and we were checked in quickly. On the inside the hotel is quite dated; quite old fashioned. We stayed in a double room on the 2nd floor with a view onto...

Me and my partner booked this hotel for one night at last minute due to wanting to stay in Newquay for an extra night. I booked a Premium Room on the morning of the visit online and shortly received a phone call to say that there were no premium rooms available but they could allocate us a standard room -... More

We booked a premier room for 4 nights for £199 and had a great stay. The manager allowed us to see the room beforehand and I would regard it as 'premier'. Looking at the hotel from outside it did look in the £80pn class so the price was value for money. The large room had a sea view, large windows,... More
