Well....it was average. We were greeted by a very friendly guy could not fault his service. Our room was possibly the best room there we had a fab view and teeny tiny balcony which I don't believe any of the other rooms had. Its very basic and very small but that is all we expected, bed was comfy and linen was clean (although was bunk beds with a single above a double). Unfortunately the room stank of smoke and airing it out really wasn't enough. There was a small bathroom, toilet work and sink worked, Shower was like Chinese water torture. If you were after a nice powerful hot shower that just was not going to happen! Everything could do with a little up date, little things like the sticking door on the bathroom, the stains on the carpet and the broken curtain. Just seemed a little tired. Location is good. Breakfast was good (pretty much all you can eat they didn't want you to head off for the day on an empty stomach that is for sure. Service was great. If you are on a tight budget and just want to have fun in New Quay and all you want your room for is too sleep then this is the place for you as its a great location.

We came to Newquay for New Year’s Eve and had a fantastic stay at Hillcrest, both the price and service is excellent and we would definitely return on our next visit to Newquay. The breakfast was also delicious. Thank you!

Welcomed by Duncan (owner) and made extremely welcome from the start. The hotel was very clean and tidy.
Very friendly and the breakfast was fantastic. En Suite with tea/coffee facilities. However we did most of our tea drinking in the breakfast room and not at breakfast. Duncan will probably see his tea bag stock not going down as fast, now we have left!!!!
We would recommend this hotel without any hesitation to our friends and family. It is just far enough out of the main strip but a nice easy location for wandering down to the town or harbour.
Lots of activities on offer, surfing, kayaking etc if you are into those sort of activities, or just a great place to stay if you are into touring. Extremely well placed for touring.
Will hopefully be booking again later this year.
We would like to extend our thanks to Duncan for his hospitality.

Well what can I say?

The Hillcrest, I genuinely cannot praise enough. We were a party of 12ish lads...all up for a big old 3 day stag weekend and I can honsetly say the place was top notch. Nice location off of the main strip by all of 200 yards, but far enough out of the way that you dont get drunken hobo's singing Chumbawumba outside your window in the wee hours. Our stag was heartilly welcomed with a "this will taste nice but may make you go blind" complimentary beverage and Duncan - Kurt Russells long lost stunt double - was a top notch fella. The rooms were as expected for a B&B in Newquay - clean and servieable with no complaints. Obviously, as I have said in previous reviews, if you are looking for the Ritz, or a place where you will get a complimentary mint on your pillow for the morning and the towels folded into the shape of a swan then this is not for you. However, if you want excellent value for money, good friendly no-nonsense service, a nice room, a hearty breakfast and a local authority on surfing, going out and where to get some good food then look no further than the Hillcrest. Also, the offer surfing lessons (or something like this) - however, we booked our surfing through a different place due to our lack of knowledge that he did it. Full marks from me on all fronts.

Duncan, you are the man sir. I cannot put anything whatsoever negative about this hotel. i just wished that Duncan sported an eyepatch, so I could call him Snake...

Welcomed by Duncan (aka Kurt Russell) the owner on arrival. Told us the ground rules with no BS. Every morning without fail lovely fry up served.
Location superb, just a 5 minute shuffle down a hill and you're in food and drink land. A bit further up and your in booze land.
Rooms very clean. Shower nice and hot.
Great family buzz to the hotel.
Will never need to go to another hotel. this one every time.
If you are a stag ask (if you have to which you probably wont) for the special on arrival! I promise it's all good.
