The hotel itself is in an ideal location, just a half an hour walk to Newquay, but if you have a car I would recommend adding a parking space to your bill! In my stay I changed rooms on the Saturday, the first room was slightly dated and the water in the bathroom was never quite hot enough. The second...

An excellent 2 weeks holiday here again. We had a lovely family sea view room with bunk beds for our children. They adored the time spent with Courtney, the kids entertainer, who provided them with lots of her time and activities! We word definitely recommend a visit to the Esplanade with its fabulous position overlooking Fistral Beach.
