“Great last minute stay with my friends! :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Found The Escape by searching for last minute availability accomodation. Was very nervous as it was budget accomodation, but couldnt be more pleased :) Gerry and his staff were great and welcoming and the room had more than I expected: ensuite bathroom, a safe box, and room to hang our clothes :) it is a budget accomodation with bunk beds but I'll definitely be staying here again! The location is close enough to walk to places. Gerry rocks!!! You made claire bear and friends stay the best!

Our rugby teams tour to Newquay in April 2013 involved staying at the 'Escape surf lodge'. We were greeted by Gerry the host of the hostel with his staff and received a very warm welcome and were shown around the accommodation. The rooms were spacious, clean and perfect for a big group of men to share. The shower room and toilets were in very good clean condition. There were 2 showers per room and one toilet as well as communal ones in the entertainment area/restaurant. The Bar and restaurant were vibrant and modern, with the bar open until 4am! The breakfasts were freshly cooked and all locally sourced. Good prices and deals on everything in the hotel. Perfect location as walking distance to the main bars and clubs as well as the beach. Surfing lessons were available at a decent price through the hotel. All staff were very approachable and will join in with your laughs! Would highly recommend for groups or anyone after an amazing experience as well as value for money. Especially for Rugby teams wishing to tour as there were plenty of local friendly teams willing to participate in the games and celebrations afterwards...

Room Tip: all rooms were quiet at night

Stayed here on our adult rugby tour, really great location and a great place to stay, the bar was fantastic as it stayed open till 4 and beer was a good price. Got an amazing deal for a meal for 20 in the Thai restaurant first night and the breakfast was first rate (freshly cooked not mass produced), staff really friendly and couldn’t do enough to help, we even managed to squeeze our 34 seater coach in the car park, defiantly stay again if we come back to Newquay, cheers Gerry

Just stayed at the Escape for a stag do - we had a wonderful time! Thanks!

We wanted somewhere relaxed as a base and what we got was MUCH more! Location was ideal, but the staff made the difference. Always helpful and accommodating and made our stay as enjoyable as possible. The bar was a lovely place to chill out with a beer and a game of pool. The Thai food was AMAZING!!!! The whole atmosphere was perfect.

Thanks!
