We stayed here for six nights and upgraded to a room with a sea view. The hotel is well located with easy walking access to the town. The room was spacious with good storage, and had a large newly decorated en suite bathroom. The beds were very comfortable and we loved waking up to a stunning view across the bay....

We've stayed here a number of times and this hotel is clean with modern rooms and great sea views. Definitely worth paying for one of the better rooms. The reception staff were helpful. The location is very good in Newquay just far enough away from the nightlife etc so quiet at night but only 15 mins to walk in.

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.

Last minute booking for New Year's Eve. Our usual accommodation was booked so tried Great Western for a 3 night stay, including New Year's Eve.
