I was there over easter 2012. Part of a 36 man stag do. We were in one of the larger rooms (16 people) there was a bathroom with 2 showers, a wardrobe and bunkbeds. If your looking for somewhere which is a good location and fits everyone's budget this is it. Newquay is a 'party' place so the chances are your not going to spend a lot of time in the room. The bar area is good with a pool table and serves till 4am! we actually had more fun there than our in town.
We had a Thai meal in the restaurant which was fantastic! it was preordered as part of our package and the food just kept coming till 36 lads were full - was the best value and tasty food all weekend.
We also did the coasteering which is worth a look at - just watch out for choppy seas as it gets a bit hairy.
This isnt a place for a quiet weekend with the missus or for a family holiday!
Jerry could not do enough for us and was very chilled - a great weekend

The Escape is in a brilliant location 2 minutes walk and your in town :) I just came back from my friends stag party and this place ticked all the boxes. It has got a really good bar downstairs with a brilliant sound system and makes for a great start of the night before you go out, it has a restaurant too but i didn't eat there as i was mostly to hung over

Drinks are fairly priced and the owner is a good guy who will do anything to help your party along.

The rooms are basic bunk beds so dont expect the hilton, its literally some where to get your head down then party on down stairs!

Had a great time and would go back again.

Room Tip: Ask for the double beds!

If your looking to spend your money on fun and not frills then this is *****.... Five star.... Mint place with double mint guys working here... Booze is cheep and the food is the best... Gerry the governor is the most laid back guest house owner I've ever seen... Great guy... If you want frills and doilies then this is not for you.. If you looking for clean... Fun.. Few rules... 5 mins from beach and less to the pubs and clubs of Newquay then I suggest you book in here....

We werent the normal client group that would stay at the Escape , fifty + 10- 18 year olds! However the owner and his team tailored everything to meet our needs and were so helpful from start to finish.
The rooms were clean practical and fun for our young people with some rooms having triple bunk beds! We had an English Breakfast and also a Thai Chicken Curry which was to an excellent standard and if I was ever in Newquay again I would pop in just for the food!
All the staff were very friendley especially Noam and Dean who went the extra mile to help whenever needed.
The whole weekend was a sucess and I would recommend anyone to stay here and its fantastic value for money.

We visited newquay last year to play a rugby match and spend a couple of days there, we found the escape to be a great place!! couldn't ask for a better place to stay, rooms are big, CLEAN the bar is pumping, the restaurant is outstanding value and the owner Gerry is a really nice guy.

Nom in the kitchen and bar is very helpful, the staff couldnt do enough for us, we were very happy to have stayed there. So much so 30 of us are going back for may this year. Bring it on.!! :-)

We really enjoyed our stay here. Free parking, perfect location, only 2 minutes walk from the center of the city and the beach, bus and train station. Staffs are extremely friendly and helpful. Bar is awesome, open till 4am, there's a pool table, cheap drinks, and you can play your own music! It is very lively you wont get the best nights sleep of your life, but who goes to newquay to sleep anyway! Room was basic, but adequate and clean, bed is very comfortable, the breakfast was really good, Thai food is the business! Everything is spot on. Stay here if you are planning to go to Newquay for a fun and lively one.
