Four of us decided to visit newquay through groupon. Initial impression of the hotel was impressive, the views were to die for. On entering the hotel we were greeted by the hotel owner who smelt of alcohol and was slurring her words. We booked the superior rooms which both had a balcony (a definite must if you stay here). We... More

The hotel was very quiet, just one other guest but we weren't upgraded to a better room. Ours was a twin at the back and very small. That said it had everything we needed, was quiet, warm and comfortable. The land lady was chatty and informative and the breakfast was amazing. Right by the sea in Porth it was a... More

What a little gem this is. First class attention from all members of staff, they all seem like one big family and this comes across right through the hotel. The views are outstanding and ample parking which is quite rare here. Will be back, and have already got kids booking next summer to get the Newquay feel, had beens years... More

Only negative was the bed was far too small both width ways and length ways the room we had was number 6 I think and needed some updating... More

Great breakfast in a light, airy dining area with good views. Relaxed bar area, friendly staff. Comfortable bed, clean, tidy room. Great shower. Good location, close enough to the heart of Newquay, whilst being set on some stunning coastline. Only drawback for the light sleepers are the thin bedroom walls. Take your earplugs and you'll have a perfect stay

If you are in the Newquay/Porth area then this is a place to stay. The views from the front rooms over looking Porth beach are quite stunning whether shine or rain. The Hotel staff are excellent and can't seem to do enough for you. Importantly, the whole hotel is spotlessly clean and the breakfast is a 100%. Without a shadow... More

Stayed for three nights using a voucher so very reasonable price. Sue and the staff made us very welcome and were extremely entertaining each night. Breakfasts were excellent, loads of choice and a view to die for. Rooms were clean and comfortable, tea, coffee and biscuits replenished each day. Would recommend. Hope to go back next year.

Found this through Groupon at a very reasonable price for our two nights. Very friendly greeting from Claire on arrival and she was very cheery and helpful throughout our stay. The conservatory style breakfast room gave fantastic views across Porth Bay, couldn't have asked for better. Plenty of choice on the menu for breakfast, which was all very nicely cooked... More

We bought a groupon voucher for this hotel and was very impressed. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. When it said pimms on arrival we expected a glass and were delighted to get a large jug! The breakfast was great and the view while we were eating it was amazing! Would definitely go there again.
