This hostel is based in a brilliant location for the clubs and bars of newquay. If that is what you are after, then look no further. The room was clean and comfortable, our room even had a sea view, in which we watched the sunrise. Although we didn't make it to the breakfast I am sure it would have been very tasty! The staff were also really helpful, and answered any questions we had.
"Lovely guest house, welcoming and friendly hosts"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The owners were a very friendly couple. Our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were excellent. We would thoroughly recommend this guest house and certainly if we are back in Newquay we would stay there again. Excellent value for money.
It was a short stay but a pleasant one. Kate and Paul, our hosts, were fantastic.
There were some issues with the parking arrangements and how to get there.
The rooms are clean and pleasant.
We found the price too expensive for the facilities of the hotel.
"hotel ok but they have got the leisure side wrong"
There are some really goods points; the bar area and lounge are very well done - although these areas clearly have been this way for many years and the regal look remains attractive. Room was ok; basic TV with no sky or movies as options.
My only reason for classing this hotel as generaly OK was the dissapointing spa area - sauna was the size of a telephone box, changing room had 1 seat to seat down on, tiny lockers, two showers which took up 3 times the space that everyone had to change in; whilst i was changing there were 7 people trying to dress in a 3 metre square area. Pool cleaning kit left by the bubble spa but easily the worst thing was the amount of locals that poored in, there seems to be a membership option meaning both the gym and pool area were populated by alot of them particulalry young lads aiming to get buff with their mates - I did speak to a couple of hotel guests who found it intimidating and far from inviting.
One more thng - the resurant staff were at times inexperienced; i had to ask for knives and forks etc which i thought was a given in that job.
Arrived with the rain pouring and found that free parking is available but is 100 yards or so away. But the welcome was quick and cheery and we soon settled in to our room with the heating on. A very nice lounge with DVD's to use (and borrow for the room), internet access (free), TV and coffee + drinks (honesty) made our welcome feel real. A quick recommendation of "Fresh" Bistro up the road and we were feeling much happier. Good location for central Newquay and the beach is an easy walk.
Really enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable, homely feel. Absolutely immaculate with everything you need. Really good breakfast. The owners here really care. They were friendly and helpful with suggestions. I would stay here again.
