absolutely beautiful hotel and pub in an amazing location overlooking the sea .We stayed in room 9 which was the most expensive room in the hotel as it has views to the sea from both sides of the room and has a very high spec interior.Breakfast was amazing except there were no croisants as stated in the breakfast menu,with no explanation or alternative supplied.We had dinner at the pub,unfortunately i have to say we felt a bit let down.W felt a little bit of attentiveness from the staff at dinner would have been nice,however we might as well just walked in from the street.We ordered at the bar nservatory/restaurant bit was lacking in ambience, it felt like a echoey school hall considering how well the rest of the pub has been refurbished it was a shame.The evening meal we ordered arrived lovely and hot and very tasty no fault there ,but no body came to aask how it was or ask if we wanted another drink ,when we had finished eating our plates were whipped away and no one came to ask if we would like a dessert,we waited for a while but no one came back to our table and there was no menus around in the room so it meant walking through the busy bar to get the menu then find someone to order it,we felt insignificant to think we were paying £120 a night for a room upstairs.We left and went down the road to the rival penwig for a couple of G AND T nightcaps and decided to have the aero hot chocolate and biscuits provided in our room as our dessert instead.We had stayed at hotel with sea views at a nearby resort the night before for £70 per night and although not as plush as the black lion the staff made our stay feel special a table is reserved for dinner in there best place unless you dont want it and they couldnt do enough for us.Im really sorry to sound so negative about the black lion but i felt it needed mentioning as it truly is a lovely hotel it would be a shame for their standards to slip and especially at the price of their best rooms it makes ones ecpectation higher.

We stayed in Newquay as a family group this weekend and whilst there we called in to the Black Lion a couple of times for drinks and lunch. The menu is short but what we had was lovely. Plenty of choice at the bar drinkswise though! The refurbishment looks fantastic in the public areas and if that is repeated in the guest accommodation then it will be a complete success. Looking to book a room soon. Newquay is simply gorgeous with the added bonus of the wonderful wildlife (dolphins, porpoises and seals) on show most days in the bay!! Enjoy it, if you can.

Took my husband here as a surprise for his birthday as he spent a lot of time in Newquay as a child. We were not disappointed, the refurbishment is excellent, rooms fabulous. Had a hearty fresh cooked breakfast. Would definitely recommend it and look forward to going back.

The hotel has been beautifully decorated throughout. We stayed in room 7 which is stunning, great views of the sea and coast....lovely comfy bed and plenty of space in the room. The bathroom is also well equipped and well decorated. My only moan is on the windows a net curtain would be very useful.
I cannot fault the quality of the room and it was very clean, The staff are very laid back and Mike was a great host... friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was lovely with the perfect sunny morning view.
Enjoyed the stay and will be returning as its a stunning location and the hotel is perfect,
Thank you to all the staff

Room Tip: Room 7 or 9 big rooms with stunning views
