We discovered this gem because my sister in law and her husband stay there occasionally. It is the tiniest hotel (as opposed to B&B) I've ever been to - only five bedrooms but still has an excellent restaurant (open to non residents) and a bar. Luxuriously and stylishly converted from a Victorian house clinging (literally) to the cliffs above Newquay's traditional Cornish harbour the rooms are fantastic with their own private balconies and lovely views over the harbour and down the beach. The owners/proprietors can't do enough for their guests.
The town itself isn't to everyone's taste being constantly busy with the younger surf set but the hotel itself is located out of the busiest areas and in a road with no passing traffic. There is a website which you should be able to find using Google and it is as lovely is it looks on that. We will definately be returning.
Be warned - there is no parking. And we took a local taxi to Rick Stein's hotel in Padstow but they didn't come to collect us afterwards though we had booked them to (but the restaurant managed to find a different taxi at 00.30 despite pouring rain)!
