“Gorgeous view, very friendly staff, definitely stay again ”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

Loved the location of this hotel, so close to town and the view from our room was gorgeous!!

From start to finish, the staff were brilliant, I booked through their website and had a call back within the hour to confirm it had all gone through ok and Paul was super friendly and made me look forward to the stay. Was then emailed directions.. Make sure you use these as the one way streets in Newquay are a nightmare!!

Very friendly and helpful staff who helped us out a lot through the stay, didn't book a parking space (recommended) but no worries, we got one when we asked, upgraded to a sea view.. Brilliant!, I bought a new paddle board that weekend too, no worries, they stored it in a secure room, happy days!

On arrival, we were greeted with big smiles and the entrance hall and I loved the decor. We went for a budget room which is very basic and you get exactly what you pay for, it's small, no view but clean and comfy...

We were upgraded to a sea view and it definitely made our trip! The bed was comfy, the room a lot bigger and the view, just beautiful! The shower was good pressure and lovely and hot too.

Breakfast was yummy and drinks at the bar nice too (maybe look into a range of wines?),

Have no negatives to say about this place, loved our stay and would come back again, thank you!

stayed in this hotel as part of a young farmers weekend in Newquay. this hotel is right on the sea front, few minutes walk to the beach and very close to the town and local bars and food places. less than 10 min walk to the train station too which was very convenient. The rooms were basic but beds were very comfy, The showers were cold however two people went in before me.. Also the breakfast was rather cold but eatable and was a long wait for it to arrive on our table, they only had one waitress ordering and delivering the breakfast, which wasn't well organised as there was over 100 young farmers staying in the hotel prebooked, so they should have organised more staff to cover the ordering and waitressing and reduce the amount of time we had to wait! But overall... staff were very friendly and the bar downstairs was nice area to sit and have a drink before we went out! was recommended staying her and would stay again!

Room Tip: I was staying in a room at the back which was basic but nice and was only there for 2 nights. But ro...

Thank you for your candid feedback.

We are very pleased to read that you enjoyed a generally pleasant stay with us and considered Hotel Sunnyside good value for money. In the same respect, we are extremely sorry for the inconvenience you experienced at breakfast. This was unacceptable. It was indeed our opening weekend of the season, however, you are correct in noting that we should have been more prepared. Please accept our sincere apologies.

The issues with breakfast on our opening service have been discussed at length and now resolved. We look forward to offering future guests a great value breakfast and efficient service in accordance with our usual high standards.

The issue with our hot water supply has now also been addressed and resolved.

We hope to see you again soon.

I stayed in this hotel as part of a group of young farmers. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and will do anything to help you and make your stay good. This hotel is in a great location right on the sea front and a very very short walk to the shops however we found it very hard to find parking as there isn't much parking around if you don't reserve a space from the hotel. The rooms were very basic but nice and the beds were really comfy however the showers weren't very warm and if your a tall person you can't move the shower up and down. We were given breakfast vouchers for the morning however the breakfast was cold and we had to wait a long time. I would defiantly stay again though :)

Thank you N2411 for your feedback on our hotel.

We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your recent stay and that you would stay with us again.

We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience you experienced with the shower and with breakfast. We accept that mistakes were made on what was our opening weekend of the season. With new staff, a few technical issues, and over 100 breakfasts to serve, things did not go as we would have hoped. We offer our sincere apologies to all those affected by these shortcomings.

As we prepare for our second weekend of the new season, we have addressed these issues to ensure there is no repeat.

Thank you again for your review and we hope to see you again on your next YFC visit to Newquay!

I stayed at Hotel Sunnyside in Newquay as part of a school residential in October 2013. We did not book direct, but instead via a booking agent. However, we were delighted they choose to place us at Hotel Sunnyside. I was asked to review the agency (Barefoot Adventures) on Tripadvisor, but I would also like to add my thoughts for the hotel itself.

The accommodation at Hotel Sunnyside was basic and clean and thus perfectly fit for purpose. Myself and the other teachers were upgraded to 'standard' rooms with single beds. The students were allocated 'bunk' rooms. There were seemingly dozens of rooms at the hotel and so they were able to accommodate all the friendship groups really well. Sorting this issue out was perhaps the most difficult aspect of the entire trip! Sandy, the manager, was very able and willing with the rooming situation. Throughout our stay, I will say that all the hotel staff were very good but Sandy, as perhaps the most prominent, stood out. A very professional and friendly lady- a credit to the hotel.

We booked a package with all meals provided by the hotel- breakfast, a packed lunch, and a 3 course dinner. The food was substantial and flavoursome. Again, I expected far less quality for the price paid. All diets were catered for. No complaints whatsoever with any of the meals. After dinner the hotel provided a quiz and a disco one night for the students.

A thoroughly enjoyable stay. The students and teachers all had a wonderful week of surf and sand (and a little sun!). Thank you to all involved for successful trip. See you in 2014!

Friendly, welcoming, helpful staff and a great location overlooking Towan Beach made this a great choice for budget accommodation in Newquay for the weekend.

The reasonable cost covers your room and if you want any extras like towels, tea/coffee, toiletries etc, they're available at a nominal cost from reception; I'd read some reviews here bemoaning this policy, which I don't quite get: the hotel don't hide this policy but actually make it a feature - you pay less for your room and are then free to add (or not) whatever you want. Personally, it suited us just fine - we added towels for £1 each and would have taken our own toiletries anyway; we decided not to have breakfast in the hotel, but again if we'd wanted to, the price and details were completely transparent. Hair-dryers & irons etc were available free of charge on request.

The sea-view room we had was more spacious than the bunk/twins and yes, the view (unsurprisingly!) was much nicer, too :)

Overall, we thought our stay was really good value in a clean and comfortable hotel, with friendly, helpful staff. We'd recommend it and will no doubt stay there again next time we're in Newquay.

PS We were on the 2nd floor and the fire-doors all closed nice and quietly on automatic shutters.

I visited Hotel Sunnyside in Newquay in September 2013 as part of a hen party. The hotel is basic, so don't go expecting too much, but is it exceptionally clean and perfectly comfortable for a short stay. We had a combination of bunk bed rooms and normal rooms. I would perhaps recommend the bunk bed rooms, but purely on the price- £10 cheaper. It doesn't matter much on a weekend break with friends! The hotel have a concept with respect of extras- you need to pay for towels and breakfast. This was made very clear in a series of emails (perhaps too many?) from the hotel- I guess they don't want anyone to be surprised about this part. We booked breakfast at £5 each, but bought our own towels. Breakfast was delicious for the money. The staff at the hotel are very friendly- nothing too much trouble. Weather was great when we were there, so we headed out to the beach for the day. Nightlife in Newquay was busy with a fun vibe. Perfect for hens and stags. Overall a great place for a group stay. Not sure why any families and older people would book here. Very much geared to younger guests. Thank-you. We'll be back. The May Hen party xxx
