  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Booked for two nights and had to cancel after the first night as we were very disappointed with the state of the hotel. The rooms were unclean, the showers didn’t work and the balcony area was very untidy. It’s a shame because location wise the hotel has a lot of potential, however we will not be staying anytime soon.

We knew what to expect from previous reviews and it served us well for a great evening in Newquay but this hotel genuinely needs relisting as a 2 star. Great location but in serious need of updating and a deep clean! Broken radiator on full in the bedroom, unable to turn off. Everywhere very tired and a bit grubby. Staff a bit slack and drinks overpriced. Shame because it’s got the potential to be amazing!

  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The family room was boiling hot, all radiators were on in the middle of summer- no air con or a fan to cool it down! We have a 2 year old and I was very worried she would over heat- she was sweating a lot when she was put to bed. The room is below the decking of the bar so constant noise, the walls are so thin you could hear everything. A huge fight seemed to occur which woke my partner and my toddler which is not ideal. The breakfast order was taken and it took 45 minutes to come out- 2 other families came in after us, ordered and ate theirs and left before ours was even brought out. Just overall so disappointed with our stay and would not recommend to anyone.

Great decor and stunning views

Stayed out of season for work, but restaurant was all open and a lovely set menu available. Room was comfy and all required. Decor is fab and a lot of effort has been put into the communal areas of the hotel! The view from the restaurant is gorgeous also.

Terrible which is unfortunate. I dont feel i should elaborate i dont want to be personal but it was the worst experience so far except the breakfast view. I expect this will be knocked down and converted into more posh flats not something i would want to see as my childhood holidays are being destroyed but this as it currently is is dreafil and i wont go there again
