Good value hotel. Standard room was quite small but cosy. Very warm at night. Food was good for the evening meal and good value. Also a generous breakfast in the morning and we had a good sea view from the restaurant. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

Really nice hotel with lovely views, comfy beds and great cleanliness. Ideal location - about 30 seconds walk from Newquay train station. The staff were very friendly and our room with a sea view was also really spacious! Would stay again.

My wife and I have had lunch with a drink here on several occasions. Food and drink great. Amazing views of the coastline. We haven't stayed here but we would seriously consider it based on our dining experience. Give it a go!

We decided to stay here while we attended a friends wedding nearby and we're very impressed. The room was very comfortable and had everything you could need for your stay. With a brilliant location overlooking the beach and at a great price you couldn't ask for more. Will definitely stay again next time we visit Newquay.

The staff were friendly and helpful kept our bags safe until the...

I've stayed in some beach amazing hotels around the world but the view from the floor to ceiling bay window in our room was one of the best ever. Stunning. Lying in bed watching the waves rolling in is a real treat. Our room was very comfortable, with good free wifi. We had our 14 month old baby in our...
