Had to wait for staff to come from the other facility for check in, not ideal after a 9 hour drive on a hot day. The advertised bar and breakfasts weren't available. No staff on site. On checkout I was asked to bring my keys up to the other facility or I'd have to wait half an hour. I left... More

Room for 6 people very cramped. Bathroom smart and clean. Tv was broken and radio was intermittent. On arrival nobody on reception and place was all locked up so called 4 numbers on front door. A man came out of building and advised me to walk up to the other hotel to check in...Great if I wasn't carrying all my... More

We stayed here as a group of 40 and had a great time. Friendly staff and helpful. Some rooms slightly cramped although mine was large and spacious. Good storage for boards and wetsuits too. One problem that the showers were quite cold after the first night and would have appreciated a self catering room for hot tea and snacks. Also... More

Please, please, please don't take any notice of their glossy website. I think it's fair to say it doesn't actually represent reality! To start on a positive note the new manager does seem intent on turning things around as the lodge is in a transitional period after changing owners but it is clearly at rock bottom at the moment. Things... More

i have been to Newquay many times and this is by far the worst place i have stayed. On arrival we were told we were in the wrong building, we were in supposed to be in the hostel around the corner. Arriving there the security guard attempted to check us in, giving us a key to a room that was... More

Had my stag do here this past weekend, and was very pleased with this place. The rooms were clean with TV and CD Player, the shower was good and the beds were comfy. Only thing was the bar was closed and we weren't allowed to use it to have 17 of us have pre night out drinks, but that was... More

we were a group of lads on a stag weekend. we had two rooms, each slept nine persons. Clean and modern, friendly staff, security at night. It is a bit of a squeeze in the rooms when full and nine people fighting over one bathroom is a struggle. Good location and value for money.

Just got back from a stag do. Stayed here with a group if 9. It was OK They were stag friendly which I guess is the major plus point. They have security at night which is reassuring. The shower got blocked really quickly which was the only major downer.
