I was treated to a surprise holiday to Newquay by my boyfriend. He picked this hotel due to its amazing location. When we arrived at the hotel we missed the car park turning and ended up turning onto the beach road...NOT ADVISED! It's very difficult to turn a large car and get back to the top again. Car park is very neat, however we had a lovely space next to the door. It costs £5 per day to park, but does save a bit of a walk.
Hotel reception staff were lovely! Very approachable and friendly.
We had a non sea view room, which was over looking the side of the hotel and Indian restaurant next door. However it was very quite which was good. Lovely size room, fresh looking colours. We had a double bed which was very comfortable, pillows and mattress very cosy. There was a good two sweater leather couch and dressing table with chair. The shower room was an excellent size. Very bright and clean. There were tea and coffee sachets and lovely biscuits available which were replenished daily.
Our t.v caused an issue on the first night, it lost signal. We were not in the room for long so reported it in the morning. The shower was also blocked, again we reported this in the morning. The reception staff got onto the issues immediately and by the time we returned in the afternoon it was sorted. We were offered another room of the same standard, but we chose to wait and see if the problems were resolved...which they were.
We sat in the bar garden the first night for a drink. It's was set in a beautiful garden I between two stunning beaches. There is a nice covered area to sit in if it rains. We did not book breakfast, but did choose to eat there on the last morning. Prices are very reasonable. I had poached eggs on toast and my boyfriend had sausages in a roll. Both meals were very tasty and were brought to us very quickly by a lovely friendly girl. Bar staff were also very friendly and welcoming.
There are two stunning beaches at either side of the hotel which are easily accessible.
I really enjoyed my stay at the Great Western. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others thinking of staying in Newquay.
