Myself and four other twenty-something lads booked a room here at the lodge for 5 days. Jackie was extremely welcoming and friendly and provided us with a choice of a cup of tea or a beer and some tasty homemade banana cake. She then gave us information of things to do nearby, places to eat, surf etc. as well as the ground rules of staying which were all easy to abide by (No smoking in the rooms, keep the noise down when stumbling back from the pub at 5am etc.) so we had no problems. The beds were comfy, showers were hot and there were even some spare mattresses under the bunk beds that were there to accommodate for larger groups (8 people max) We even had a small TV that we hooked a Playstation up to for a few FIFA drinking games before we headed out for the night.
The lodge itself is within less than 5 minutes walking distance of the town centre so we had plenty of places to choose from for food, drinks and shopping. It's also very easy to remember the way back if you don't have access to google maps.
Overall, a very clean, chilled out, comfy and convenient place to accommodate your group. I will definitely be trying my best to get a bed here again next time I visit Newquay.
Cheers again for the brilliant hospitality!
