my daughter and myself spent only a night there since we had to catch a plane the day after. the place is modest but has everything you need and is quiet. small rooms but brand new huge thick towels, extremely friendly and helpful landlord. I would go back and can recommend it.

We needed accommodation close to Newquay airport as we were catching the first flight of the day and had to check in at 07:30. I booked my stay through Booking .com .I usually have tripadvisor open at the same time so I can check the hotel as I book it.This is the first time I have found the tripadvisor reports... More

We stayed one night at the smugglers, a reunion do. We usually always hand pick our accommodation with luxury being very important thing for us, for a treat. We new we wouldn't have luxury and we were just looking forward to meeting some old friends. We had quite a small room, but the view, the level of cleanliness, the standard... More

This is my second review for the Smugglers Inn since my birthday last year. The owners have done an absolutely fantastic job in turning the place around. They have put in a huge effort in decoration and it looks so homely and comfortable. I spoke to the Chef - Ann a week before my Birthday party to see if she... More

Well what can we say? Thank you very much indeed for your review, after the last one from a guest house just down the road which I believe was designed to do damage to our business it has renewed our faith in trip advisor somewhat. We look forward to welcoming you again when you are down this way next, and... More

Although it is called the Airport Hotel I saw a sign saying ‘Smugglers Inn’, so taking it for a pub called in for an early drink. Therefore this review and rating is solely on the place as a pub and not a hotel or restaurant. The bar is a bit tired, and neither a pub nor a comfortable hotel bar... More

Very many thanks for taking the time to write your review. I am pleased to say that already we have started to brighten the downstairs areas up. As we have only recently taken over what was a very run down and very sad building and business, we are in the process of on going refurbishments, doing the worst bits first,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small hotel/B&B just 2 minutes walk from Newquay Airport, providing accommodation for business and holiday customers. We offer good food and drinks to residents and non residents. We are but a 5 minute drive from Watergate Bay (home of Jamie Oliver's Fifteen) and Mawgan Porth, and just 10 minutes from the A30, and from Newquay & 20 minutes from Padstow. We are about 30 mins from Eden Project, and within easy reach of all of Cornwall's attractions. We are on the Western Greyhound 556 route which links the airport and the train station in Newquay to Padstow and many places in between. We are also just 6 or 7 minutes from St Column Major where the National Express coaches pull in. So all in all we can boast about being pretty central for most of Cornwall. ... more   less
