We stayed at Rockland’s early June 2011, to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary, from the moment we parked our car up, we were met with luxurious surroundings, everything was sparklingly clean, from the corridors to our apartment. Everywhere has amazing furniture and furnishings. The apartment had everything we needed and more. Our balcony over looked the beach, had the sound of waves crashing, whilst we went to sleep. Nino always there if you needed anything. Book it, you will not be disappointed !!!

My partner and I have recently returned from two weeks at the Rocklands. The first week we stayed in apartment 2 and the second we popped next door into number 3. Both apartments have everything you could need with all 'mod-cons'. They're immaculately clean, as is the rest of the building. Both apartments are on the 1st floor of the west wing.
Apartment 2 has one bedroom, but also has a sofa bed to accomodate upto two persons. Apartment 3 is a studio apartment so your kitchen/bedroom/living room are all in one big space. We actually preferred the studio as we could try and watch a film in bed at night time, as the previous week we just had to go to bed as we were falling asleep on the sofa.
The kitchens had everything needed to cook with. I cooked many times and preferred it to my own.
These apartments are to a high standard and your truly get what you pay for. The hot tub and roof terrace are fantastic and we'd recommend going in at night time as it relaxes you after days out walking around newquay or surfing in the sea
The Rocklands is built on a cliff over looking Tolcarne beach and the views are amazing. It's very close to get down to the beach which is obviously a bonus compared with if you had to come down from a campsite each day. This particularly helped us as my parner took about half an hour each time he had to get his wetsuit on/off and it knackered hime out.
Last but not least is Nino. He is the manager of the complex who meets and greets everyone. He's very helpful and happy to answer any questions about newquay, restaurants and even the weather forecast. He welcomed us and showed us anything we needed to know about within the apartment. He was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay.

Room Tip: Apartments on the 1st floors have the biggest balconies.

We just arrived back from a weeks stay in Rocklands 31, and it was fabulous! The apartment itself is absolutely stunning, not to mention the view...!
We travelled as a family with my husband, my 17 year old son and 19 year old daughter, and all of us agree that we would most definitely come back here!
The apartment had everything in it you could wish for, it was immaculately clean, the design was beautiful, and the views of Tolcarne beach were just incredible.
The location couldn't have been better - right in the centre of Newquay, and only a short walk to all the near beaches.
Would definitely recommend Rocklands to anyone who is visiting Newquay.
Oh - and the hot tub on the roof was an added bonus!

Stayed at 6 Rocklands for 10 days with the family (two adults, to kids aged 10 and 6).

The building and apartment itself are great, new, well maintained, nicely designed (however, the design is sometimes not very practical as things like coat hangers are missing in the hall and the bathroom has 4 (!) different lighting systems, none of which really illuminate it very well). The sleeping couch has an awful mattress - we got an inflatable one and slept on the floor after the first night.

The view on the sea and Tolcarne beach is awesome, the building managers are helpful and friendly, and the car park and gear storage is very welcome. WiFi is free and worked well.

On the down side, the apartments on the west wing (including #6) are located right next to an Indian restaurant and the kitchen fans must be pointing more or less directly to the apartments. I love Indian food, but having strong Indian cooking smells in your nose for 12 hours a day did spoil the apartment for us to a large degree. Most of the time you can't enjoy the balcony or even open the windows wide without having pungent curry and oils penetrating everything. Smelling the fresh sea breeze was only possible in the early morning. Definitely a turn-off.

Also, the Newquay town center itself is disappointing, being a random collection of cheap booze shops, arcades, and assortment of budget establishments it caters to the low end of the visitor spectrum. We never felt really comfortable there.

To sum it up: Rocklands itself is great, but the issues with the apartment and the location make us hesitant to come back again.
