“Return visit”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Our last visit to this hotel seems like forever away. It was one of the most memorable mid-week breaks I can remember. We stayed for the Storm Watching break and weren't disappointed, massive waves over Fistral Beach which the Headland overlooks. The rooms are in keeping with the age of the hotel and are kept scrupulously clean. All the staff are always very helpful. The meals are, as you would expect from a top hotel, excellent.

Thank you for your review following your last 'Storm Watching Escape' at The Headland. Just to let you know that these breaks have returned once again from early November, when once again you have the opportunity to watch the Atlantic in all its might from one of our cosy cottages, you can find it on our website now at the moment.

Stayed one night, the hotel setting is lovely and spectacular views of the sea, it is worth paying extra for sea view rooms, the rooms themselves were ok, I have seen better at other luxury hotels and the bathroom was basic, the communal areas were really nice and staff very friendly. We were there for a meeting and Claire was very helpful. The breakfast was very good.

. Thank you for giving your positive feedback following your recent overnight stay with us. It would be hard not to agree with you regarding making the choice to occupy a sea view room due to the uninterrupted, jaw dropping views of the Atlantic from so many of our bedrooms. Thank fully with so many categories of room on offer enables us to be able to accommodate the majority of those who would also like to enjoy The Headland experience.

A first time visit for myself and a wonderful 3 night stay in what can only be described as living in the lap of luxury.

the rooms were to a high standard and the staff couldn't be anymore helpful or friendly. they were all so nice . Excellent service from all involved. Hats off to all the staff not only on the reception, but John in the main dining room. The food is of the highest quality and he ensured that everyone's needs were met.
The Headland Hotel a stay that I will never forget.

We will be back in February 2013 ...... see you then!

If you've never been to Newquay before, see it at its best, through one of the many (grade two listed windows) at the majestic Headland Hotel.

A family run hotel which is big enough to have all the amenities and small enough to know who you are at reception.

Very friendly, competent, polite staff. Good quality food, very clean and a historic romantic setting on what must be one of the most beautiful seashores in Britain.

Room Tip: Ask reception for 'the best available' in your chosen price range as the staff want you to b...

Visited the Headland Hotel for afternoon tea in August while visiting my family who live on Pentire.
Excellent service and the food is amazing especially the cream tea.
The Boardmasters Comp was on at the time and the views across the headland and beyond are I think one of the best in the world.

My wife and I and our Black Labrador Jack visited the Headland Hotel on several occasions during our two week stay in Newquay and were so impressed I felt I should share our experience. We did not stay at the Hotel and just fancied visiting for a drink but were not sure if they catered for non-residents and dogs. However, we should not have worrie, we were made very welcome and spent many happy hours on the Terrace overlooking Fistral Beach. The staff were superb and made us feel very welcome, inparticular our dog Jack who enjoyed his visits as he got fresh water and treats on each occasion. They even allow dogs inside the hotel in the lounge and bars which was very welcome when the weather was not so good. During our second week we had some relations staying with one having specific dietary requirements (Coeliac which requires a Gluten Free diet) and we were very impressed how the hotel was able to cater for Coeliacs. We ate in the Terrace Restaurant and the staff were all aware of and able to cater for a Gluten Free diet. The Hotel even did Gluten Free scones so Cream Tea's are also available...we were very impressed. Absolutely wonderful, we will certainly be visiting again.

Have recently returned from a stay at the Headland for my lovely Nephew's wedding. What a wonderful experience! Had never been to a civil wedding ceremony before, but have to say that I was well impressed. The hotel staff were very friendly and attentive, and absolutely nothing was too much trouble - they even had to move a piano from the dining room to the function room for us, no worries! Food, restaurant, views all marvellous. We had a courtyard room, really nice, acres of space! Yes, it would have been nice to have a sea view, but we were not in our room very much, we were too busy enjoying ourselves in the main part of the hotel and also the excellent Spa to miss the view. Thankyou Headland!

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms good value and very quiet!

Thank you for your lovely review, it is very much appreciated. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed the occasion of your nephew's civil wedding ceremony and the celebrating that followed thereafter. The Headland has a truly wonderful position and one that holds some very fond memories for those who have in the past chosen to 'tie the knot' or a number of other special life marking occasions. I quite agree with you regarding the quietness of our Courtyard rooms (especially during a storm!) they are perfect when you are only likely to spend a limited period of time away from the party and represent fantastic value for money. As you would have experienced, all the public rooms on the ground floor all have great views anyway, look forward to welcoming you next time.
