Only stayed one night and found the Hotel very pleasant indeed and will stay again. The room was very good,spotless with a giant bed which was very comfortable indeed. The restaurant and breakfast facilities are very good and fairly priced. My only nminor negative point is that a £5 car park charge is incurred for an overnight stay.

Stayed for a long weekend in December and was very happy with the whole experience. Nice clean room with amazing sea views and friendly staff who were happy to help out with any queries. They are a credit to this establishment. The breakfast was also good and enjoyed some live music on the Friday night. Will be coming back soon...

Spent 4 nights in mid September 2016, we got a good deal from an outside booking site, much cheaper than the prices shown on the hotels own site. Great location for shops, beach, pubs - the local Wetherspoons is close by. If you take a car book a parking place as the car park is small - £5- per day....

Spent 3 nights here recently, lovely hotel if a little dated. Was extremely windy and the windows rattled all through the night, it appears a couple of the catches are broken. Ear plugs purchased..... The room tho, was extremely spacious, very clean, with a slight see view which was a bonus as we booked one without a seaview... The staff...

We came here this week on a walking holiday. The staff are generally friendly & efficient, and the dining room has a great view. Some areas of the hotel are a little tired, but decorating had started during our stay. The hotel is pretty central. Tip: on site parking is limited so if this is important, book before although there...

Stopped off for an afternoon drink. Lovely views of Newquay and it's beaches. Busy bar. Friendly staff. Fairly pricedmenu. Although we only had a drink. Food looked good. Lots of space and tables overlooking the sea.

I am a great fan of St Austell Brewery Hotels and this is one of the reasons we opted for booking The Great Western. It is much larger than I expected, and in a need for a bit of updating. Situated in an extremely busy part of town with limited chargeable parking. It was disappointing that our compact double room...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. The Great Western is situated at the beginning of the town and roughly a 10 x minute walk to the town centre.

Stayed here for 4 nights end of October. We had a comfortable stay and were made welcome by the staff. The hotel is situated near to beaches and town centre as well as near to train station.
