We attended a classic car meeting over a long weekend along with 50 other guys. The welcome when we arrived was excellent, and this set the tone for our stay. All of the staff were incredibly helpful; nothing was too much trouble and I can only recommend this hotel should you be staying in Newquay. Breakfast and dinner were good, and I was particularly pleased to find that they catered for gluten free requests without any issues. I look forward to staying at The Hotel Bristol when we are next in Newquay.

As a group organiser, life can be hard or it can be made easy by going to an establishment that is run in a very professional way.
From making the enquiry over 12 months ago my journey with the hotel has been made so easy, from sorting room types and tariff to meeting with the chef to sort menus and costs adding a great afternoon tea with home made cakes different ones each day.
Feeding 50 people and catering for all tastes could not have been easier.A winner every meal.
The bar staff made car named cocktails which was very much appreciated by the club members,
The minute people arrived they felt at home very happy friendly reception to the porters helping with luggage.
The food service team did a cracking job, food was served with a smile and the wine glassies kept fall.
We had a front room it was great sitting in the window watching the world go by (when i had five minutes ) and a very comfortable bed well made.
When I reported a light not working a happy obliging maintenance man arrived, so often it takes most of your stay to get a light sorted, thank you.
All in all a very well managed hotel who believe in the old faction word "Hospitality" so often this is forgotten.
Thank you to you all

Thank you for your positive feedback.

We are thrilled to know your group had a wonderful time here at The Bristol.

Our team work hard to ensure guests feel at home and enjoy their stay, from a friendly check-in, to ensuring the rooms are clean and comfortable, and tasty food is served with efficiency.

I agree, the view from our Sea-View rooms are rather spectacular.

Our staff also enjoyed the weekend and we hope to see you again soon.

I go here for massage/treatments from Martina who runs her business (Massage or Knot) from her relaxing therapy room near the spa. Her service is outstanding and she has a professional yet warm and caring manner that leaves you feeling amazing afterwards (with a lasting effect). In my opinion (and I have experienced many treatments from around the world) if you want a massage or healing treatments she is the only person you would ever want to see. If you're staying here on holiday or lucky enough to live nearby I advise that you don't miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime to experience her magic healing hands and special caring energy. Thank you Martina I feel so blessed and lucky to of found you! Kiri Wedlock xx

Martina has recently moved to the Bristol Hotel with her business Massage or Knot.

What an amazing recommendation. It is great to read, and we are really pleased to know you enjoyed your treatment. I'm sure you will become a regular client for Martina.

This hotel is one of Newquay’s few remaining high quality establishments. I’ve attended many functions here over 30 years and have always been impressed by the friendly and very professional staff. As a result we held a family wake at the “Bristol” this week and we were looked after like royalty by Owners Stuart and Vera Young. A family run Hotel of this size and quality is rare these days but three generations are keeping the standards up and tradition going here. It is extremely popular with German tourist parties who love the Cornish coast and Rosalind Pilcher TV drama filming location tours.
Great place to stay, hold a function of any size, visit for a drink and light meal or go full A La Carte in style.
Highly recommended.

Room tip: Ask for seaward facing room.
