We flew into Newquay and got a taxi to the hotel, did not know at the time but there is a bus from the airport that drops you outside the hotel, so bear this in mind if you are flying to Newquay. I remember visiting this hotel about 10 years ago when it was just a pub to watch

I booked a room here for a surprise for my husbands birthday. It was just perfect, the room was absolutely amazing with views to match. All of the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We didn't eat in the restaurant that evening but went for breakfast the next morning

It does have a lift on one side of the hotel which serves quite a few rooms, however alot of the rooms are via stairways. They are very good at accommodating wheel chairs etc so if restricted I'd ring and book or state you need access to avoid disappointment.
