Really good for the kids as it had a play area built like a train in the garden with sea views all around. We were able to sit and enjoy a great meal and drinks from the outside seating area whilst looking out to sea.

This is a value for money hotel. Hotel rates are very reasonably and you get what you pay. Rooms are large and exceptionally clean. The reception staff were super friendly and location could not be better- a short stroll from the rail station, shops and restaurants are on the doorstep sync the beach is a stone throw away- recommend this...

Not much else to say except the manager - nick - is arrogant and has dreadful customer service traits - is loud and insulting. Its take it or leave it - so we left it - the place has fantastic views but his service leaves a lot to be desired. Found him very argumentative. The other staff are lovely and... More

This was a decent hotel, rooms weren't huge but big enough and bathroom was spacious. The hotel has a large bar and restaurant area - both indoor and outdoor - and play area for kids. There was also live entertainment which was a real bonus. 2 negatives for me - parking in Newquay is a nightmare and I left it... More

We stayed here for one night at the end of July. It is clean albeit a bit tired in places but good value for money considering its location in the heart of Newquay and looking out over the sea. Hotel reception provided great service. Parking is limited on site but there are pay and display car parks in the local... More

The room is at the back and overlooks the beach and sea. Fantastic views right across the bay. The rooms were clean and modern and the... More
