If you like sports this hotel lounge certainly has plenty to offer. Tvs blaring, pool table and local newspapers.... Thankfully it also has a scenic view across the bay from the rear and a spacious open terrace which must be glorious on a hot afternoon. The service and refreshments are average but there is space and comfort so it offers...

Excellent choice. Perfect location. Staff are very helpful and flexible. My wife made booking and she's never been to Newquay so I wasn't sure if she made the right choice but she definitely did. Will be back again this summer.

Only stayed one night and found the Hotel very pleasant indeed and will stay again. The room was very good,spotless with a giant bed which was very comfortable indeed. The restaurant and breakfast facilities are very good and fairly priced. My only nminor negative point is that a £5 car park charge is incurred for an overnight stay.
