Hard to describe how amazing this place is, food is expensive but you get beautiful meals that are big meals of very high quality. The views are stunning and I really can't fault it, great for of owners as well. Lovely vibe with a cool surfer feel to it

I love staying here. Jay the owner is supremely kind and I come back to stay time after time. My kids love it too as it is an authentic surfing experience and Jay makes great food. 35 of my friends joined me on my last visit and Jay, Ian, Becky, Darren and Danielle and helpers laid on an amazing party....

We had originally only arranged to come here as it was cheap and had vacancies and we desperately needed somewhere to stay, but after only the first night we knew we made a good choice. The people are what make this place amazing, there were a lot of instruments available in the bar and after only a couple of hours... More

Jay, What a lovely stay. This is a homely place and you are treated like family rather than a client. A most helpful hostess and the price is absolutely great value. Great place to stay when arriving late at Newquay Airport.

An inexpensive option for those on a tight budget. Friendly like minded guests and an exceptionally helpful owner who went an extra million miles to help me out when I found myself in a hole entirely of my own dumb doing! An absolute star, I would definitely not have got this help from a concierge at any swanky hotel. If... More

I had a stay during the end of season in Oct-Nov 2012 and all I can say is that the company was excellent and the beds were made and we were waited on hand and feet. There are shared showers and toilets however you do get a wash basin in each room. This is a cheap hotel in an ideal... More

Me and some friends were in Watergate bay for the weekend and stayed at the Watergate Bay Surf Lodge. It is a very nice place to stay, extremely cosy, the people are very friendly and made us feel completely at home. Despite being hostel accommodation, the facilities were in good condition and extremely clean. We had a dorm room (with... More

I have visited the lodge a couple of times, and have never had any problems. I wasn't expecting the indulgent luxury of the £300pn hotels in Watergate, but I was expecting a cheap and friendly way to stay (and surf) at Watergate, and that's exactly what I got. I've been coming to Newquay for years, and this place feels like... More
