We stayed as a group of young adults for a friends birthday and was such a good price! I had a lovely family room with the views over looking the beach which was stunning! Very clean hotel. Only a short walk to the clubs and pubs which was brilliant ! Downside : limited parking - make sure you reserve a... More

On our way home from a short but sweet weekend in Newquay for a family party. The hotel room we had was spacious, clean and had a lovely view of the sea. The beds were really comfortable and a good nights sleep was had by all. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here having booked tickets for the Electric Beach festival. It was clean, tidy and a perfect base for our weekend away. The lady on reception (think she was called Hayley) was brilliant throughout our stay. Highly recommended!

For £80 per night I expected better hotel and service. Firstly, the receptionists weren't very enthusiastic at helping us using their car park, which we booked in advance and paid extra for it. As we arrived at 12.30 pm the lady told us that if we find any free space, we can park now. Otherwise we have to wait until... More

This once would have been a magnificent hotel, it still has that feel but is perhaps getting a little tired around the edges in the reception and stairwell areas. The room I stayed in was large, well appointed and spotlessly clean. The bed was superbly comfortable so a good nights sleep was easy! The adjoining restaurant is adequate, the food... More

I would definitely stay at this hotel again but would want a room with a sea view - unfortunately we had a room overlooking the busy road and carpark. The rooms at the back of the hotel have a stunning view so book ahead and get one of these! The rooms are exceptionally clean - a good size and comfortable... More
