Cosy atmosphere in this small hotel, nice bar with the feel of being in your mammy's front room. Early breakfast catered for travellers catching flights in nearby airport, but last breakfast is at 8.45, a little early for us holiday makers. Gay friendly.

Stayed overnight whilst down for a family event in St Columb Major Owners very welcoming, great bar with Cornish Ales, lovely full English with basic but clean rooms make this an ideal stop over spot.

Get the mega 18 oz pork loin. My husband did!mega feed. They even went out their way to make me a roast dinner as I fancied one. Lol. I can say this place is a must for everyone. If my husband enjoys it then it's good as he works in the food industry

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.

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

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
