Great hotel off season

So, I booked this place before reading too many reviews, it was basically the third highest rated place close to Newquay and the price difference to the top two was massive. I then read more reviews and tried to cancel - turns out non-refundable means just that! Check in was smooth, as other reviewers have noted, the hotel is a little bit of a maze - it appears that various blocks have been built over the years and slowly had their links to the main building covered in. It generally felt like this had once been a holiday village, Butlins type of thing and had been upgraded to a hotel. In keeping with that, our room had an odd layout - Master bed by the door, then bathroom, corridor along the side of the bathroom leading to a kids room / living room with french windows out to the balcony. The ancient baby monitor another indicator that this hotel is not as new as it appears. Fixtures and fittings in the rooms were shiny and new, but felt a bit consumer quality as opposed to commercial durability. That said, power plugs on both sides of the double bed, a fair Vodafone 4G signal and enough pillows, cushions and towels to keep anyone happy. We didn’t pay for breakfast so I can’t comment on that, we did have dinner one day and although they were sadly out of the Mussels my wife was so looking forward to we both enjoyed our meals. The view is the real appeal of the restaurant and that is compromised in the winter when it gets dark by 6pm. Good hotel, would come again.
