We stayed in an en suite seaview room which was reasonably sized with a slightly smaller bathroom but for what we paid definitely can't complain! There was a mixup on arrival about room rates - but the rates we'd been quoted over the phone were more expensive so again happy customers! The whole lodge has a friendly relaxed feel, staff...

The hostel is clean and in a good position,it has a nice chill out area with pool/table tennis table and the atmosphere was incredibly homely. Staff (especially James, who put a genuine effort into relating with every guest at the hostel... More

My friend and I stayed here for 5 days on a surfing and cider drinking holiday, Matts Surf Lodge is the perfect place to do this! Its a short walk to the beach, you can bring your boards inside and every one is friendly. After 2 days a couple of other guys even let us borrow their surf boards! such... More

We had planned our holiday way in advance at last minute we were forced to find alternative accommodation, we can... More

We went to Matt's surf lodge for a post GCSE holiday with 6 girls. From the start the staff were welcoming and very helpful (even carrying our VERY heavy suitcases up two flights of stairs!). We loved the chilled out lounge area where you were able talk to other guests. Our room had a lovely sea view and enough storage... More

If you want a 4* hotel, I suggest you book a 4* hotel. If you want good prices, friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere then Matt's is the place. I've stayed here several times and never had a bad experience, I would highly recommend it, I've stayed a several other lodges in Newquay and they dont even come close despite... More

I visited Newquay, early March, and stayed over Matt's for 8 nights. Booking was straightforward, and paid by paypal. Atmosphere is very friendly and all the guests gather in the lobby every evening, dining, watching movies and exchanging surf tips. I want to send a big hello to all the Spanish crew and also to thank Dan (the receptionist) for... More

I was very reluctant to stay at a Surf lodge because I thought that it was going to be chaos. But this was a great stay. We stayed there for just under a week before the August bank holiday. We had a double room and breakfast was included with it. All that we wanted was a room to stay in... More
