We stayed on the DBB offer for a quick break in Cornwall. Very cheap and cheerful. Hotel overlooks fistral beach, we had room 207, which was modern, with a sea view and small but nice bathroom. The hotel on the whole is a bit dated and not luxurious, but the staff are friendly, the food was fine and it is in a great location to visit St Ives, Padstow etc. Newquay is 5 minutes by car, and the Headland hotel is a must for a Cornish cream tea (the hotel on the peninsular opposite side of fistral beach). Newquay is run down compared to how it used to be, but St Ives and Padstow are still pretty seaside retreats. St Agnes is also nearby as is Watergate Bay, which in my opinion is a lovely beach and one of the best in England. (Comparable to West Coast Australia if you get the weather!) Whilst we were there (Feb) it was a bit windy, and the kite surfers were out in force, which was fun. As usual, surfers love fistral and they seem to be out in all conditions (brave!)
The hotel entertainment was ok, pool table, bar, table tennis, pool. We did see a night with the multi-instrumentalist, which was fairly relaxed, but dated with the songs played. I would recommend this hotel for a cheap getaway to cornwall, but I would not return as I have been spoilt by the headland hotel now!
