Just returned form a 3 night stay at the Windward. On arrival we were upgraded to a superior room with a balcony overlooking the beach with fantastic views. The hotel was very clean and warm. The breakfast was extremely well presented and very tastefully. Overall a very pleasant stay and staff very helpfully.

Nice hotel all staff friendly and your made welcome, room clean and tidy, the hotel is a little dated and a freshen up may be needed but it was a pleasent stay. It was close to the beech but a 20min walk to the centre of Newquay. Breakfast was lovely and the staff were great!

Just returned from and overnight stay for my birthday. The weather was crazy but we were snug and cozy in our room. Sue and her team were welcoming and couldn't do enough for us including my lovely bottle of wine and birthday card on arrival! The views from the front rooms are breathtaking and the added bonus of a balcony... More

My partner and I just spent a lovely night at the Windward, we were greeted by a polite member of staff, our room was clean and tidy with a fantastic view of the sea and cliffs. After a realizing sleep we had a well cooked breakfast, all in all a good value for money stay.

We spent 2 nights seeing in the New Year. It was our first visit to the Windward and what a delight it was ! Sea views from our bedroom window or balcony plus the dining area. Very helpful staff and made us feel so welcome. Lovely breakfast. Ample parking. A 5 minute walk down to the beach. Or a 5... More

We purchased a groupon voucher as a Christmas present for my mother in law and husband, they went to the b&b to book their stay (not 4* hotel as stated in the advert on Groupon). When they got there they was greeted by a lady that had poor customer service, the hotel smelt of smoke and was very dated. After... More

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
