I booked a premier double room, the bed was not a double which made for an uncomfortable night trying not to fall out of it! The view was amazing when you looked out of the window, but the interior not so good. The corridors are dirty and dated with worn carpet and peeling paint, I couldn't use the drawers next... More

My partner and I booked a Superior room some months previous to our visit as accommodation was rather limited in Newquay during the August holiday period. We worked our way down from Berkshire stopping at several locations along the way...and it rained and rained!!! Viewing the long range forecast it was to be no different on our final leg in... More

Not exactly helpful staff, had a room right above the bar. Live music was playing and really loud, called reception and was told I"its only one night" and she will speak to her supervisor, no one called back. Newquay is a dump and this hotel matches.

6 of us stopped here for 3 nights, our room was basic and overlooking the car park. 99% of staff are very friendly until you meet the night porter. Picture this 6 people all in our 50s returning to the hotel and asking the porter if any bars close by are still open, he replied no, my sister jokingly said... More

Sunday lunch at this venue can't be faulted. We go here now every time we visit Newquay. Large portions and reasonably priced. Have a game of pool and a beer and enjoy the sea views. They also show football matches on various TVs throughout the restaurant area.

The hotel is on its own peninsula so the view from the restaurant and bar are fantastic. We had good weather and there is a lawn to sit out on with views over two bays, so lovely for a drink and to watch the sunset, or for breakfast. There is also a children's play area off the lawn. Our lock... More

Can't recommend this Hotel more highly, took my 2 teenage children away for a short 4 day holiday and found this little gem of a hotel just by chance. Stunning Location, Lovely restaurant / Terrace garden looking over 2 beautifull beaches, friendly helpful staff, lovely clean large room, made a perfect base for our little Cornwall beach adventure. Last little... More

We were looking for a Sunday lunch but were struggling with something that looked half decent in Newquay- until we found The Great Western. One of the best Sunday lunches I have had and a reasonable price too. That combined with great views across to the harbour it was the perfect spot.

We stayed in room 227 fantastic sea view a good sized room with enough storage space, bathroom was also clean and tidy very quiet. Walls in room could do with a magic sponge being taken to them to get dirty marks off. Parking what a joke, my husband and i both ride motorbikes which i had informed them, we new... More
