Great location but awful hotel. Room was tiny, illuminated all night long by very very bright spotlights shining through the curtains. Walls paper thin and could hear people next door. Heated towel rail located too close to toilet and burnt legs! Would not recommend.

Wife and i had evening meal and breakfast. Lovely location. Staff generally helpful and attentive. Wife is coeliac and very much enjoyed fish meal. Manager respectful and professional when raising an issue concerning the attitude of a particular member of staff.

Good hotel, lovely view from room (room 226). Room cleaned, staff were excellent in the evening but a bit missing in the morning. Food was very good in the evening, good location but remember to book a parking space before you go as these are limited but worth it.

My wife and twins stayed for three nights from the 4th April to 6th April 2014 and I cannot fault the hotel at all for the money we paid for a large family room with sea view. On average the cost of food in the hotel was on a par with anywhere else we ate bar the Weatherspoons where the... More

I decided to stay in Newquay for my birthday and based upon the location and price, decided on the Great Western Hotel. Although i cannot comment on the 'budget' rooms, i would highly recommend paying the extra for a superior room with the sea views. This is what made the trip for me, falling asleep listening to the waves and... More

A lovely friendly hotel where nothing is too much trouble. During our stay the restaurant was being re-carpeted but the staff out themselves out to make sure we did not suffer any inconvenience. Our superior room was beautiful and everything worked. Only one negative comment - the bedside lights could not be reached to switch on or off without getting... More

We had a great room, great large sized bed with a great ocean view. Hotel is definitely tired and needs maintenance and modernizing but for the price and the good nights sleep we were happy to overlook these things. Restaurant was costly for what was on offer and be warned- although we booked parking, for which we were being charged,... More

Booked at the last minute and chose a refurbished room. For the price the room far exceeded expectations-spotless, modern and comfortable with a fabulous sea view. Very friendly welcome and we would definitely stay again.

My wife and I booked for a weekend stay from the 21st to 24th March 2014. We booked a budget room, now I wish we had prior knowledge of how bad these rooms were. Throughout the room wherever you walked caused the floor boards to creak very loudly. the bathroom wall tiles were patched with odd tiles and in fact... More
