“Wonderful out-of-season break”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Just returned from the most enjoyable four night stay at The Harbour. We couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The bedroom was very clean, comfortable and the little touches, like the bottles of water and the chocolates on the bedside table and the dressing gowns and slippers, made it special. The view from the window looking out over the harbour was superb. Friendly and efficient staff, delicious breakfasts, excellent menu in the fish restaurant, use of laptop and printer all contributed to a really wonderful break.

Due to unfortunate family circumstances we had to cancel our longed for trip to this lovely looking hotel on the day we were due to travel. We were overwhelmed by the kindness of the owners/staff who were so sympathetic and contacted us to say that they would rearrange our booking for later in the year. That is going above and beyond, as they were under no obligation to do so. How kind!

This review isn't recent but on the 28th December 2003, my girlfriend and I ( now my wife ) stayed at the The Harbour hotel, and the memories are still there! We stayed for 4 nights, and found the rooms were clean, large and comfortable beds, the rooms weren't plain either.

We had breakfast at the Harbour hotel too, and couldn't fault the hotel!

Would HIGHLY recommend and my Wife and I will return in the very near future!

We found this to be a beautiful B&B that gave a warm welcome from the second we arrived. A cosy room, a view comparible with those from abroad, friendly staff and excellent service made for a truly enjoyable stay :)

Stayed for 2 nights in July. Lovely rooms, true Cornish welcome from the staff and beautiful location. Breakfast included is great quality and dinner menu was fantastic! Couldn't really ask for more... Great value! Wifi included, well stocked room, free laptop and printer access and even offered a loan of wellies and umbrella when it rained! Would recommend to anyone!

We stayed elsewhere in Newquay and were looking for somewhere decent for lunch. Happened upon the Harbour by a degree of chance. The view from the Terrace is the best in Newquay. Had the crab spaghetti which was to die for, especially washed down with the excellent Camel valley Rosé. The wife had the fish and chips which again looked excellent. Definitely worth a visit.
