Me and my wife truly loved our stay at this hotel! We would highly recommend anyone to stay here at this location beautiful views, beautiful facility's and above all... The staff are very professional and quite possibly the most devoted, kindest hotel team we have ever come across. So all in all this hotel very much deserves a 5 star rating!!! Loved every minute!! Never felt so rejuvenated. Just want to take this opportunity to thank the staff once again, oh and almost forgot the value for money!! £50 for a 3 course meal in a truly stunning restaurant with an amazing view and soothing music in the background unforgettable experience and that atmosphere is in every part of that hotel.
From a very satisfied husband and wife

We recently stayed at the Headland, which has a fantastic location above Fistral Beach; the hotel looks out over the sea facing due west; the sunsets can be stunning, which you can see from the restaurants; this is the third time we have stayed there and have always enjoyed the overall hotel atmosphere; all the rooms we have stayed in have been spacious with sea views; this time the overall hotel service was let down by a poorer service in the main dining room which was not something we have experienced before; reception and the other dining bar area - faultless; overall though we did enjoy our stay

Room Tip: Ask for the Fistral Beach view; this is the best

After visiting the Headland for the previous 12 years, i decided to return with my son for a mini break. We had a lovely time, the weather was superb and the hotel up to it's usual high standard and the wonderful addition of a first class Spa. Would love to return with my girlfiends for a treatment weekend!

Room Tip: the hotel has various gradings of rooms dependent on budget so check this out before you go, we stay...

What can I say but splendid. We stayed for a weekend in September as a last minute break. Have stayed in Newquay many times but never at the Headland. We booked a courtyard room (the cheapest) and as it states on the website you can request a double room instead of a twin subject to avaliability. I wasnt too hopeful as it was so last minute, however we recieved a quick response by email to say a treble room had been reserved for us. When we arrived the staff were lovely and helpful and showed us straight to our room, and even gave us a history of the beautiful hotel. The room itself was clean and comfortable, however the room literally looked out at a wall (it does say this when booking) but you get what you pay for. We ate at the hotel on our first night, and the food and hospitality was fantastic. Breakfast was lovely, lots of variety and kept us full for most of the day. The spa and swimming pool is lovely and relaxing, and beautifully decorated. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to return!

What an amazing location, right on the sea, next to the crashing waves. We stayed in the cottages (huers 3) which was just as lovely as the pictures. The sea 'glimpse' was much better than we'd expected - with a great sea view over the roof tips of the other cottages. The staff were great and incredibly welcoming of our dog (who also loved the location by the dog friendly beach!) - the cottage had an enclosed rear garden so we could let the dog out, and pooh bags and dog blanket were even provided. Cleaning staff were happy to come and clean around the dog if we were out, and even play with her. The weather was quite stormy while we were there and I can sympathise with the hotel, trying to maintain the building in such an exposed location - some glass was broken during the storm but was taken care of very swiftly. The hotel constantly seeks feedback on what they could do better, which I thought was great. Great location for surfing on fistral beach - you have to give it a go! Also recommend the boathouse in Newquay harbour for food - another great location. We also made good use of the spa in the hotel, all lovely.

Thank you for your comments and we’re delighted that you enjoyed your recent stay with us. We are truly exposed to the elements which our guests can experience first hand on our Storm Watching breaks – it’s wild and dramatic and not for the faint hearted! However, you can then rebalance and enjoy sublime relaxation in the Spa which I’m pleased you used and enjoyed.

I have stayed in one of the ocean view cottages 3 times in the last 3 months. The cottages are very beautifully appointed and comfortable. The ocean view cottages have little gardens with outdoor furniture and the views are amazing. It is a short walk into town (Newquay) or to Fistral Beach. The walks along the cliffs are stunning. The best thing is that The Headland is extremely dog friendly, down to supplying "poo"bags and treats. Staff are all friendly and nothing is any trouble. A great place to go for a relaxing break with the family and dog !

The Headland Hotel hosted our conference in September 2013. Claire Robison, our Events Manager, did a superb job in helping us to pull everything together and was always at hand during the event. The conference went without a hitch, the facilities were fantastic (a beautiful conference room with views over the ocean), the food was wonderful and plentiful and the hospitality at the hotel was second to none. All of the delegates were pleased with their rooms and many remarked on the wonderful service from all of the hotel staff who were courteous and helpul at all times. Thank you to all involved in helpling us to deliver an amazing conference that was enjoyed thoroughly by all who attended.
