“A lovely friendly place to stay”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Just stayed at the guest for a short break very friendly owners who made me feel right at home. The rooms were nice and clean with plenty of space. I've stayed in guest houses before where the rooms are full of bunk beds. It was a pleasant surprise to find a guest that had less beds to actually give you room to move around. Breakfast was huge and really nicely cooked.
With everything being so close to the guest house, this place is real value for money.
Ill be booking a room here for my next visit

Nice rooms, very clean. HUGE breakfast, and great customer service :-) Very close to the town, shopping, restaurants, bars and easy to find. Helpful hosts, who even put up with hen and stag do's!! Friendly and always willing to help and advise on the area. And 3 incredibly cute dogs live here :-)

Fantastic location walking distance to everything right in the centre of Newquay. The owners are so welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is great and the rooms are big and bright and the ones at the front have a view of the sea.
I would really recommend it if you are looking for a B&B in Newquay especially if you are organising a hen or stag party as John is so helpful and understanding.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the house have sea views

If you're looking for a really good bed and breakfast hotel in Newquay look no further than the Smugglers Rest on Seymour Avenue. The hotel is situated close to the centre of Newquay and is a good base to explore the town. The rooms are spotless and comfortable and the breakfast in the morning is to die for; you have a choice of cereals, fruit juices and a full English breakfast to follow washed down with a choice of either tea or coffee. The hosts are two of the nicest people you could wish to meet, very friendly and approachable and always eager to help. The prices are extremely reasonable and represent great value for money. This is the first time I have stayed at the Smugglers Rest - it definitely won't be the last!!

Firstly - I need to tell you the nature of my trip - I am a single female travelling alone with my 4 year old son on a bit of a roadtrip. We'd decided to pack up and visit the various coasts in and around cornwall. We did everything on an ad hoc basis - which sometimes resulted in below par accommodation - not so for the smugglers rest. We literally pulled up outside and were lucky enough to find one spare room. The first thing which I noted was that rather than just sell me the room - which many B&B owners woluld have done - the landlady discussed with me the other guests she had staying that night (there were a couple of stags) and she wantyed to make me aware of that before I committed to taking my money and potentially having my lovely 4 year olds sleep disturbed. Luckily it wasn't - also for anyone with children this is such a family friendly B&B - my son is animal crazy and the proprietors were more than patient with my boy and his hundreds of questions about the family pets. There's an honour bar, tv's in bedrooms all rooms clean and functional - we had en suite - not sure if they all are but presume so?? - the breakfast is FANTASTIC, and they cater to everyone's requirements - and it's all at a great price. Warm, friendly, wonderful people providing a fantastic service - Joe is already asking me when we can go back - and we most definitely will be. Could not recommend enough x x
