I stayed in a single room for 3 nights at the Carnmarth in August 2014.overall my stay was really good. My room had a sea view, small shower room, TV, kettle and although small, did the job. The bed was far too springy for my liking ( and back!) but not the end of the world. Sound proofing was not great and one night I did have neighbours who seemed to keep opening and shutting their doors but it didn't go on too late. The other 2 nights were fine and quiet. The breakfast was very good, I had eggs benedict one day which was delicious and you could get a wide selection and everything seemed fresh and cooked to order. The staff were a mixed bag, that would be my only gripe. Some and indeed most, were very friendly and helpful but some were a bit stand offish. I had dinner at the hotel on one night and the food was excellent and they were happy to do me a starter dish as a main which was lovely. The location is wonderful and the hotel felt clean and well maintained. For a fuss pot like me, this hotel did quite well!

We stayed 4 nights at the Carnmarth Hotel to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We booked a best room which was exactly as described, with wonderful sea views. The room was clean and tidy and the prefect base to explore Cornwall. The only downside was the shower was a tad limp and took a while to warm up. We had a breakfast and one main meal in the hotel. Breakfast was excellent and the main meal very good - steak excellent, burger was a little dry. However, we would most definitely stay again and recommend the hotel to all.

This was our tenth visit to The Carnmarth and the owner even greeted us with a welcome saying "we deserved a long service medal!" So nice to know we are remembered every year even though we only stop for three nights and at possibly the busiest time of year for the Boardmasters festival. As usual, our stay was faultless with spotless rooms, lovely breakfast and most of all, the best bar in Newquay. The C-bar, as it is aptly named, is a brilliant place to either have a few drinks before going into town or as we did, stay there for two of the nights for drinks and a meal which was declared the best burger ever! I am sure our friends won't mind me saying they are two of the fussiest people on the planet and they love everything about it. If you're spending any time in Newquay, whatever the time of year, and want to be near the beach, within walking distance of everything but also have fantastic amenities at the hotel (just on case the British weather catches you out), then The Carnmarth is THE place to stay. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Room Tip: Ask for a front facing room overlooking the golf course and beach if they have them available, they...

Had a fantastic week at Boardmasters on Fistral beach staying at the Carnmouth.
Staff were excellent and a fabulous atmosphere in the hotel - just 2 minutes from the beach.
Room on the front with a view of the golf course and down to the sea
Room was spotlessly clean and well furnished for our stay
We ate in the restaurant twice as it was so good - the chefs crevette prawns and spicy seafood curry was excellent!
We have already booked the same room for next year...
Thanks to all for an excellent stay.
