“Brilliant stay!”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

When looking for hotels in newquay i came across the carnmarth hotel. Pictures looked brill. Started to read the reviews had mixed feelings. But went with my gut and booked it. Upon arrival from the outside it looked really nice. And as soon as i walked into reception i knew it was going to be a brilliant stay. Me and boyfriend arrive at about 1pm but we couldnt check in till 2pm. We was greeted by a nice receptionist and when asked if we could check in early she was happy for us to check in there and then. When going up to our room as it was on top floor we decided to take the lift which was scary thought it was going to stop. When opening the door to the room it was lovley. We had superior room with balcony which was nice as had the view to fistral beach and the golf course. Bathroom was ok. Beds where ok. We only had breakfast in th hotel which was part of package and thought meals at hotel was abit to pricey. We would recommend to eat at the fort just a few mins walk from hotel was good for your money also has park for kids and a really nice view. Breakfast was nice, But there was a girl that seemed really moody and never seemed to crack a smile. Nice few mins to walk to beach and town only used car once to go to padstow on our 4 night stay. Also when asked for more milk and new duvet cover (as dropped choco biscuit on it) they was happy to help. Only downside was could here next doors TV and sometimes people walk past our room heavy footed and the door slam as we was the first room by the door. Fire alarm was going off 4 times at stupid oclock time and was above our heads think someone was smoking in room. There was also a leak to out balcony door as rain the night before but was sorted when mentioned. Also was abit windy and there must of been some lose seal on balcony door it all u could here all night. Overall a brilliant stay for me and my boyfriend. Will book again.

I had my wedding here last year and have to say that the staff are just magnificient! A family run place which has been renovated since our visit a few years ago; the hotel is smart, crisp and clean.
The wedding planner, Emma was amazing. She couldnt do more for us and i was a typical worrying and somewhat persistant bride! The day panned out beautifully with a stunning background and a fraction of the price of what the nearby hotels quoted and a much more relaxed 'newquay' feel.
The ensuite room we had boasted a big decked patio and was spacious and clean and the bed leant us a good nights sleep.
I had a get together the night beforehand and 30 of us tucked into good food and reasonably priced drink.
Theres also a surf school attached so theres a hybrid of different vibes which is nice.

I really rate this hotel. Its simple, fresh and has some of the best views in Newquay and the staff are the biggest selling point.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony!

My partner and I have just got back from a 3 night stay at the Carnmarth Hotel. My partner has been to Newquay many a time but this was my first. We live in SE London and left very early in the morning to drive to the Carnmarth. We arrived at about 10am to beautiful sunshine and were met by a smart looking Carnmarth Hotel. Although check in wasnt until 2.30pm we thought it would be polite to let the staff know we had parked and that we intended to go for a wander around. The reception staff were absolutely lovely and said that we could check in if we wanted. Our room was room 24 and was really big, with a huge bed- one of the biggest we have ever stayed in! The room was really clean and had all necessary items such as hair drier/ iron and board, lovely fluffy towels and tea and coffee bits- also bottled water which was really nice touch. The view from the room as spectacular- right over Fistral Beach and the golf course. The view was made even better by having a really lovely balcony so you could take in all the views. Breakfast was brilliant- all freshly cooked to order and nothing seemed too much trouble even when we requested loads of toast to go with our fry up one morning to try and soak up all the cocktails from the night before. We had a few drinks in the bar and every night we were there there was a function which was nice to see the hotel being well used in the off peak season. The drinks were very reasonably priced, a bit more than pub prices in town but we expected that. It took us about 10 minutes to take a slow wander into the town and literally 2 minutes to Fistral Beach- we didnt use our car once whilst we were there! Overall a really lovely hotel with fantastic, attentive staff, amazing views and great breakfasts and we will definately be back. Thanks Carnmarth!

Room Tip: Room 24 had amazing views over Fistral Beach and the golf course.

All in all our stay here was a pleasant one. When we arrived on the Sunday we were told we would be the only guests on that night - was very quiet but thats expected during December I suppose.

Our room was at the corner of the hotel with amazing views over Fistral Beach but the room had a very strong smell of damp in it!

Breakfasts were fine and all of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

My girlfriend and I stayed in a double room at the front of the hotel. Beautiful views across the golf course and Fistral beach. Room very clean - most comfortable, big bed we have stayed in! Staff very friendly and helpful. My girlfriend left her necklace in the room after we checked out, the staff happily posted it back to us with no charge - really appreciated!

Location is fantastic. Walk down to the beach in wetsuits (2 mins), go for a surf, then the staff are happy for you to walk back through the hotel in your wet wetsuit - makes it really easy and you dont have to worry about getting changed at the beach etc. We were to check out on the sunday - staff happy for us to delay our check out so we could get some morning surfing done!

Breakfast is great. Love the fried bread - might be nice to have 2 slices instead of one?

Wish we could have stayed longer. Really hope we can return at some point. Thanks!

The budget single room was about the size you might expect, i cant really fault it appart from the walls that were thin so i could hear everything from next door. But for me its all about the location, perfect, the views from the terace at the front are over the golf course and fistral beach. A cool bar dowstairs, great staff in the bar and at reception and i cant fault the breakfast. Gets my vote.

My mother and i stayed at this hotel as close to wedding venue we was going to. The staff was very friendly and helpful, to the point off allowing us to take the room before check in time, and ringing taxis for us, as well as supplying extra milk as im big tea drinker. the room was very clean and the beds well we where sad not to take them home with us as super comfortable and refreshing to have decent and good pillows. Also there was tea/coffee facitites, hairdryer, also nice touch was an alarm clock, tv, radio heated towel rail with towels and complimenty shampoo and soaps. from the reception, bar and waiters we found very polite and gave us a warm welcome. the breakfast in the morning was unbelievable as again few more items added then expected. Definalty would recommend this hotel and stay again , for the price charged for this hotel we was pleasantly surprised to all the thoughfulness shown. the view is also second to none we faced a huge golf course and Fistcal Bay
