It was a very nice stay. Hotel looks a bit old fashioned however it's not a problem. Rooms very spacious with an amazing view for a the beach. Very family friendly. Comfy beds, nice bathroom. Very close to everywhere, 3 mins to the beach. Restaurant was ok, however the breakfast is a bit boring, everyday the same Cornish breakfast... Overall... More

Knowing that the hotel was being refurbished & the room we booked was only £60, we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was tastefully furnished in New Hampshire seaside style. The shower was great and bathroom extremely clean. What we really loved that despite being "up in the Gods" as aptly put by one of the helpful staff, we could open... More

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
