“Friendly welcome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

I stayed in Kirribilli with 3 friends. We received a really warm welcome on arrival and we settled in for a much deserved drink at the bar in the hostel. We headed out into Newquay town centre which is only a short walk from the hostel. Raj the owner was more then helpful and gave us loads of info about where to eat and drink! We wanted to watch a rugby match the next morning and Raj was super helpful, letting us watch the match in the hostel and even accommodated us with a late breakfast, which was yummy!! Rooms were small but really clean, great atmosphere, walking distance to everything, friendly hosts...can't ask for more!!!

Kirribilli Guest House is a lovely little family run B&B a short walk from Fistral Beach and the centre of Newquay. The rooms & facilities are basic, but for the money, totally worth it. Cleanliness was fantastic, breakfast was simple but nice and the hospitality was excellent.
Although we were not in Newquay for surfing, Raj the owner seemed like he knew a lot about the local scene, and he was also mentioned to us by a local club rep so if you want to have a great night out, some surfing or even both on a budget, this would be the perfect place to stay.

Room Tip: Some rooms don't have en-suite bathrooms but there was a toilet and shower seperately on our flo...

Basically, this is a decent, smart surf lodge that was extremely pleasant to stay in. It has its own bar, does not impose a curfew and is comfortable and very affordable. However, the experience is completely made by the owner, Raj. He made us feel at home immediately, found out what we were after from our stay in Newquay, and made recommendations. He personally put us in touch with the relevant people for surfing, for instance, and sat around and chatted with all of his guests. In the mornings, he also provided a cooked breakfast with juice and tea and coffee. Overall, Raj made our stay so easy that it was a pleasure to sign up to Trip Advisor just to write this review! I couldn't recommend it more.

This guest house was perfect for us, we were 14 lads on a stag and just needed an understanding place to stay. We knew we were going to be no troble but this could put off some other estabishments straight away. Not Kirribilli, Raj (the owner) had the first round reday for us on arrival and immeadiatly made us feel at home and only asked us to respect him and his guest house.

By the end of our 3 day trip, we left feeling we had made a good friend and most nights and mornings began and ended with drinks at the Kirribilli bar.

Could not recommend this guest house anymore and this was down to the welcoming host (Raj)

Stopped here for the weekend as last minute plans formed.

Raj is not only the owner but also a very good host, sets you up with pre drinks at the bar, a decent bed to crash on and a refreshing cooking breakfast with orange juice and hot drinks.

A quality refurbishment and excellent location makes re-visiting Newquay more fesable when you've got this level if service on offer. Definitely go again!

Kirribilli guest house was a great location for a long weekend visit with friends. Great bar and common room area and really good value for money. The owner is an excellent host and goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. Really enjoyed the stay and definitely recommend a visit!

Raj knows what you need after a 5hr journey when arriving at Kerribilli...... a nice glass of cool beer. Followed by some shots to get you on your way for a night on the town in Newquay!!!!

Raj was very welcoming, easy going and helpful in advising what things to do in Newquay. I would almost go so far as to say that Raj is not only the owner but the concierge too. So if you need help in organising things ask him when booking.

The room we stayed in was functional, tidy and clean. We had a sink and shower in the room, but had to use the shared toilets. A tip, is to bring your own toilet paper, and shower stuff.

As a place to crash for a few nights without the fuss of a posh hotel, this place is it.

Breakfast was served in the morning and just the right size before heading off to some surf lessons.

This is the perfect boozy stag and hen crash pad with no frills and price that reflects. And Raj's service tops it off.

Well done Raj, keep it up. Hopefully we might see you again.

Room Tip: Room 5 has a shower and basin, so you don't have to share with other residents. Before booking...
