First and foremost we came to Newquay to surf and bodyboard. I myself wasn't expecting anything great but feel that despite this, The Surfside Hotel has a few things that really need to get sorted for people to want to come back to it. The Lady who greeted us at reception was friendly enough and showed us to our room... More

Recently stayed at this hotel with my partner and we were both very disappointed. On arrival we were bluntly greeted and showed too our room. The room was wall too wall wood paneling and very outdated as was the rest of the hotel. Our room was very small and had a awful view into a messy back yard used for... More

We stayed here as we booked quite last minute and newquay was busy that weekend. The rooms are very tiny and the bathroom you can hear everything so make sure you're staying with a good friend. We had issues with hot water but after asking the landlord 2x it started to work. The room was quite cold and a bit... More

Well we're not surfers to start with!:) But as a family, this place is really simple and very much budget style. I would recommend staying there if all you want is a decent roof over your head, be very close to Fistral Beach and the Pentire headland which is beautiful to walk. They take dogs too! The bar is fine... More

We were meant to stay here for 4 nights but after 2 unpleasant nights we went home. Let me just start by saying do not waste your money on this hotel, inside it feels/looks more like a youth hostel for people who just want to surf. Not ideal for families at all, the stairs were narrow, struggled with cases. When... More

This hotel is in an amazing setting and overlooks Fistral beach. The accommodation is very basic. Our room had an en suite. However the shower was not very powerful and with no fan or window was stuffy and smelt damp. The window was old and was full of condensation. There was also no breakfast available for our stay. There is... More

We stayed here for 3 nights last week. We booked a budget room, and budget it is what we got. The room despite being very small was very clean and we'll catered for with towels etc. We went for the option oc a shared bathroom which was kept clean at all times during our stay. Ideal for people who literally... More

Stayed here last weekend with a friend and wasn't very impressed. We stayed in the economy room as we booked last minute and wasn't much else available and it is very much an economy room. The room looked out onto the bins and the shower room was really grungy with no hot water at all. The rook itself stunk of... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. I booked as a surprise for our first wedding anniversary. We are so happy we stayed here. The staff were all so helpful and friendly. The location was fab and was close enough to town to walk. The food in the bar was gorgeous as well. All in all... More

Stayed for 1 night. Room was nice with a beachy feel, comfy bed and good space. What let the room down was the tiny shower which was so powerless I could barely wash my hair, let alone the sand on my feet, not good when your right on the beach. What also let the room down was the view, lovely... More
