What can I say - this place is so special! Newquay is a crazy mix of stag parties, all-night bars, surfing, and great beaches. Whatever floats your boat, however, the Harbour Hotel offers a real sanctuary to return to at the end of the day.
The staff are extremely friendly, and give you as much attention as you require - we felt we were given the perfect amount of privacy we needed. The rooms are smallish, but have everything you need and are very comfortable - we slept perfectly every night. The views from the balcony over the harbour are superb - great views of the beaches and headland, and it was so soothing to listen to the gentle sounds of the fishermen bringing home the catch every day (while the hotel is very central, its location over the harbour means that the noise of the waves lapping in the harbour are all you hear - no sound from the bars in the town!). Also ideal location to watch the seals begging the fisherman for spare fish - cheeky blighters!
Breakfast was delicious and all food locally sourced. Dinner was even better - we heartily recommend the hot seafood platter at £60 for 2 - huge portions, and great value for a lovely lobster, crab, crevettes, etc.
All in all a great delight - we really didn't want to leave and can't recommend it too highly - enjoy!
