We arrived a little early then the 2pm check in time, (12:55pm.) & were told politely that we wouldn't be able to check in 'till then, however the receptionist was very helpful & gave us a map of the area to explore.
The town itself is around 10-15mins walk away, with some lovely beaches although I think a town that's in need of a little T.L.C. quite scruffy in parts. It's around 20 years since I last visited Newquay!! Quite a few changes!
We were checked in & pionted in the right direction to the room, a lovely sea view with balcony. All rooms are beach themed, ours was the seabreeze, lovely! Towels changed when needed, you use these also at the pool etc. We had a problem with the balcony door but after reporting it to reception it was sorted (it was a little awkward to unlock so we left it unlocked as we were told it was quite safe up there). The only down side of having a room with a balcony is not being able to have a window open for fresh air, if the door is left open the wind blows it knocking into the iron work of the balcony making it very unpleasant for other guests. We also found the position of our room (over the bar & kitchen area) to be fairly noisy, especially the fan on the roof outside our balcony door!
The breakfasts were adequate, we also ate there twice in the evening. The food was excellant, service great, all staff work really hard, especially when they have weddings on. As mentioned in other reviews the wedding parties do tend to take over.
The gym, pool, sauna, steam room & hot tub all used by myself & partner. I didn't like the changing rooms as they weren't very private, & the lockers had no keys in so had to leave my stuff on the benches! But loved the pool just deep enough for me, don't like getting out of my depth.
We enjoyed this break, & would like to go back again in the future.
