“It was fabulously fantastic!!!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

We had an amazing stay in Newquay, it was the best hotel of life!!!! The staff were OUT OF THIS WORLD, Tom was a gurt lush barman who gave great support and advice on violation. Carlos was ever informative about Newquay and Ireland, and Galaxy aka Charles was great at the worm (unlike Thomas and his faceplant). We will definitely see you guys again soon, promise!! RECOMMENDATIONS EVERYWHERE!
love Rachel and Georgie:)x

Room Tip: Room 11 is at the heart of escape, literally! Its the heart and soul of the party!!

This place is very good for stag and hen do's. No frills, budget accommodation that is centrally located, 5 mins from the centre of town on foot. It has a bar and the prices are very good compared to drinking in the town
Gerry is the consummate host, always there willing to help out your party. Noam is a brilliant thai chef he even cooked our catch from the fishing trip we had.

Don't be fooled by the pictures, stopped in a room of 6 barely enough room to swing a cat let alone sleep 6 people. How people can rate this supposed 'hotel' (more like a hostel in a poor eastern Europe area) as excellent is beyond me. If i paid hostel prices i would be more understanding. Most of the rooms did not have a shower or toilet and the accommodation is filthy. If your not bothered as to what you may be sleeping, walking or showering in at travelodge prices then this is the accommodation for you.

The_Escape, Owner at The Escape, responded to this review, August 15, 2012
First of all I am sorry that The Escape didn't come up to your expectations I have checked the website and changed the places where it says hotel to surf lodge because that is what it is.The website does mention that it is a 18-30's surf lodge style (ie multiple occupancy). The Escape is not comparable to the travel lodge as the travel lodge isn't ideal for large groups staying up most of the night partying. The Escape is a surf lodge with a great breakfast from 8.30 am to 11am also a thai restaurant which is also suited to large groups. As to most of the rooms not having a en-suite there is 24 people out of 140 that don't have an en-suite and out of that 24 6 do have a shower. The price is around £35 per night in july when you stayed this reflects that this is a seasonal holiday town and we are busy only 6 months a year and for weekends only we are in the middle of town offer parking credit card locks on the doors a late bar, late breakfast and the thai food is amazing. I am so deeply sorry it wasn't your cup of Tea
Kind Regards Gerry

What can i say.
10 out of 10 to Gerry and co for helping and making my stag doo happen.
With 29 blokes coming down to party, it was never going to be a easy job.
But with the help of escape we got carting etc all sorted.
The Birds Thai food was spot on and good value for money.
Room where all clean and ready for us.
The bar was good value with all the main beers on tap.
Just a very good stay for the money and its safe to say we will all be back again soon.
Thanks agin Escape \o/

Room Tip: we had 8 rooms in total and to be honest they where all good. But room 13 is a good little number...
