Had a one night stay here with a friend through a website offering a discount on dinner bed and breakfast. I had read reviews about the hotel which seemed quite mixed. We arrived to a very friendly reception, were shown where our dinner table would be and also the pool area etc. very nice, clean and tidy entrance and reception/seating area. Room was on the first floor, I had read poor reviews about the state of the stairways and corridor areas - ignore these - although the decor was dated, they were in good order and very clean and i really couldnt see why so many people had commented on this matter. The room was a reasonable size, twin beds and a view out onto the main road. All very clean and tidy, bathroom spotlessly clean and plenty of towels, tea coffee etc. decor was modern and very nice. Good nighht's sleep, very quiet road even with the window open! Next door room were a bit noisy coming in at 3am but this is to be expected if you stay in Newquay!
We used the pool facilities, all of which were very nice especially the steam room which seems to be brand new. We didn't use the changing facilities and decided to go back to our room to change. Pool was very quiet whilst we were in there and we were the only ones in the steam room, so no wait to use it. Towels were available on reception for the pool.
Dinner was the only downside to the trip, although the food was adequate and they were very reasonable sized portions, the whole meal was very rushed. We were served as soon as we went in and they took our starter order, the starter arrived just about a minute later! Same for the main course and dessert, felt very rushed - whole 3 course dinner and coffee was done in 45 minutes! Nothing at all wrong with the food itself, just felt very rushed and pushed to order each course immediately. Breakfast was a little more relaxed as it was only one course.
Location is quite nice, not far to the beach or town. A bit of a long walk for a night out though - taxis were about £5 each way and could be arranged by reception for you.
Overall a pleasant stay, nice hotel in general with good staff and facilities.
