Stayed here in July for a week,right in the town centre and on top of the beach,freindly staff,clean and looks like its just been refurbished,prices are failrly cheap and great for a week or a weekend away,it is a surf lodge at the end of the day so don't expect the ritz,Newquays a place you go to have fun and party so this place is ideal for somewhere to crash,all round good trip!

Myself and five other friends all stayed at the Boonkeys Surf Lodge for a long weekend in Newquay. We didn't expect much as it was pretty cheap, and I'd say that our expectations were met in some areas, and surpassed in others.

One of the best things about Boonkeys is its great location- just five minutes from a beach and the high street, and a five minute taxi ride from the main area of clubs and bars. Similarly, it's very close to the train station, meaning that after a long journey to Newquay it was quick and easy for us to get to Boonkeys and settle in.

The facilities themselves aren't amazing, but aren't poor either. The outside of Boonkeys is tidy and clean, though the entrance hall and carpets throughout the public areas do need a bit of a clean. The room itself was clean and the bathroom was fresh. It wasn't a massive room, with three bunk beds for the six of us squeezed in quite a tight space, but we managed. The bathroom, too, was quite small but once again, as we were all girls it wasn't a problem for us. However, if six guys were sharing it might get a bit too personal.

The bunk beds were fine- not particularly comfortable, but fine. The pillows were thin, but were fine if folded over. Otherwise, the room was comfortable and everything worked fine. I especially liked the large bay window that we had, and from which we could actually just about see the sea!

We found that actually the other guests were surprisingly respectable and did not keep us up all night (though we were up rather late ourselves) but the thing is, if you're coming to Newquay, especially at this time of year, there's going to be a certain amount of rowdiness and noise in the area. Either way, we found it to be absolutely fine.

My friends and I had a lovely time in Newquay and Boonkeys Surf Lodge was the ideal base for our adventures. Just don't expect too much!

Rooms are very clean - we had one with an ensuite which was nice. There is a kitchen but we didn't use it as it smelt horrible and had dirty stuff everywhere. On the Friday night it was quiet and we slept well but on the Saturday night we got back from a night in at 1.30am and at 2.30am the room upstairs started playing very loud music which carried on until 6am! Hence that night we got no sleep. We asked the people who were being loud to be quieter but they couldn't hear us for all the noise! Although there is someone downstairs who looks after it, he is not always in and there is no formal reception - so no one to tell the people to be quiet.

Overall a nice place, but there are some which are much better in Newquay!
