We have just returned from a lovely few days away in Newquay. Despite the indifferent weather, the family and I had a really great time.
We stayed on a surf and stay package at the Hotel Sunnyside. At £85 each for 3 nights including surfing lessons, we thought it was super value.
Adam and Gareth at the surf school were brilliant. Nothing was ever too much trouble. We all thought the level of tuition was top class. Friendly whilst still very informative. I would highly recommend looking these guys up whether you stay at the hotel or not- you don't have to be a guest at the sunnyside. We surfed with another family who were camping.
The hotel itself was fit for purpose. The bunk rooms we stayed in were on the small side, but it was fine for what we required. In fact, it was nicer than we thought. The website indicates it's more hostel, but they are underselling themselves if anything. The rooms were basic but spotless. We were expecting cheap, but we were pleasantly surprised. It turns out that we paid less for our holiday than the family who camped!
The staff at the hotel were lovely. Very frendly and welcoming. It was great to see such an effort on security as well. The hotel is in the city centre so it protects guests against anyone just walking in off the streets.
The hotel style means you have to book towels and tea/coffee trays in advance. We did that and it was all ready on arrival. You can't complain at this really, as we paid such a low price for the rest of the stay. Breakfast wasn't included either. We booked for the first two mornings and it was fine. Only £4 each as well.
All in all, a bargain trip at a decent hotel with nice staff and top draw surfing school. Well done to all involved!
