We recently stayed here as part of a large walking group.

We felt very welcome. We checked in early and left a little late. Were very accommodating to our 6month baby.

Breakfast was filling and well organised. Free wifi was fast and easy.

We would stay again.

Rooms are very comfortable, excellent cooked breakfast, Yvonne and Jim made us feel very welcome and the views are stunning. We can thoroughly recommend this hotel.There is a very large breakfast room combined with a sea view lounge area.The bar room also has a sea view and the car parking area is large and secluded to the rear of the hotel

My husband and I went to Newquay with our daughter (nearly 2 years old) and had a lovely, stress-free getaway. Excellent location just two minute's walk from the beach and a couple Km from Newquay centre, so quite yet convenient. We had originally booked for 2 nights but stayed for 3 even though we had to change rooms.

The first room we were in was the 4-poster room on the first and it was absolutely lovely. Gorgeous view of the ocean, very spacious and clean and they even provided a little sand castle kit for our little one.

The second room on the second floor was smaller, but still plenty of room for the cot and had a lovely view as well. Both rooms were great! The only thing negative I would comment on is that the curtains are very light in both rooms and the sun shines in very early, even though they're south facing.

The breakfast was fantastic made-to-order fry-ups however with plenty of juice, cereal, tea and coffee (in your own little press :) ). Yvonne and Jim were friendly and welcoming and gave us excellent advice on where to eat and local attractions.

Another great perk was the honesty bar. Well stocked, very reasonably priced and nice to just sit down stairs and watch the sunset while our toddler was asleep in our room at the top of the stairs. It was great not to have to worry about having cash and just help ourselves and settle up on check-out.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will definitely stay there again :)

Lovely comfortable double' sea view, room. All the house was spotless and well maintained. Jim and Yvonne couldn't have done more for us. The weather was very wet, windy and cold but they made sure the house was always warm and welcoming. There is a large comfortable lounge with views of the sea and the breakfast room and bar are very pleasant too. Breakfast was excellent. All in all it ws a very happy and comforting stay and I hope to return. Thank you for three happy, if wet, days.

We decided to go to Cornwall for our easter weekend and I heard great reviews of this hotel therefore was happy going there.

A beautiful hotel, felt at home and had great friendly service. The rooms were very comfortable and clean!

I couldnt have asked for a better location and the views were breathtaking. There was plenty to do in such a close proximity and was never at a loose end.

Would definitely recommend this beautiful hotel and would definitely go back again!

Thank you to Ivonne and Jim for a wonderful stay.

I can't fault the location or the welcome we received. The room was clean and fairly well fitted out. For us it was a tad small, especially to the ensuite. The breakfast was very average. It felt like really cheap ingredients were being used. The coffee in the room was dire. Avoid it at all costs. Good place for a weekend stay.
