Staff were great and had plenty to tell us on where to go and what to do, went for my stag do and the hotel was more than accommodating. We were in bunk beds and the room was as you would expect but it’s positioned right next to the town centre. Room was clean and breakfast in

Situated in the centre of Newquay like an cathedral of faded grandeur is the Sunnyside Hotel. A place you soon realise is not actually a hotel, but a time machine. Stepping into your bathroom instantly transports you back to 1970, with the 3 tiny parking spaces outside also

Dear Max, I read your review with some disappointment as you have certainly not grasped the concept of either Sunnyside or Newquay itself. The building is Victorian, but our rooms are certainly not archaic, and we accommodate our guests in practical, clean, tidy and functional rooms very well. We are exceptionally transparent with our advertising and it was your choice to stay in a ‘group specialist’ hotel offering budget accommodation. Albeit budget, we do not compromise on our guest’s expectations. You are very correct, with the age of the building we do not have a passenger lift, but even our older guests can master the 9 steps to the first floor without too much of a problem. Again, with the building being Victorian we do offer bottled water to drink, however, water from the tap would certainly not make your tummy upset, it was possibly something else that caused your unfortunate incident on Bodmin Moor. I do have to say though, if the sign say’s ‘Not Drinking Water’, why would you?? Regarding parking, being a hotel situated smack bang in the centre of Newquay, parking space is unsurprisingly limited. We offer ‘6’ spaces at the hotel itself, available to pre-book for a small fee on a first come first served basis, and again, we transprantly advertise they are not suitable for anything larger than a car. I am a little amused with your ‘flying rats’ comment, as you were at the seaside, and seagulls do live by the sea!! I am so sorry you were unable to appreciate all that Cornwall and its outstanding natural beauty has to offer and enjoy. Good luck with your next holiday, hopefully it will be more suited to your requirements 😊 Team Sunnyside 😊

Certainly value for money but limited parking, no aircon, no towels, no breakfast, no kettle no lift, but in town centre and per night rate is value. Staff welcoming and willing to advise on eateries etc. Great views, next to park, turn right out the door and a short walk will

Hi Graham, Thank you for your feedback and that you felt the accommodation was value of money. Our 'add-on's' concept works brilliantly for majority of our guests as you will only ever pay for what you require, if you don't need it, or want it, you don't have to pay for it! this is what enables our room rates to be very competitive. Hotel parking in Newquay is somewhat limited. We are quite fortunate to have a small amount of parking spaces and we offer all guests the opportunity to pre-book these, but obviously this is based on a first-come, first serve basis. There is plenty of road side parking and quite a few main car parks very close to Sunnyside. Our Receptionist would have been more than happy to point you in the right direction for parking. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and our fabulous location and hope to see you back again soon 😊 Kindest regards Team Sunnyside

My friends & I stayed at Hotel Sunnyside during the boardmasters festival, we picked this hotel as we didn't want to camp. Quite frankly their would have been more room in a tent. The room was ideal for what we required that weekend however the bathroom was not. No room to wash

Dear Ryan, Firstly, may I take the opportunity to thank you for the positive comments you made about Sunnyside. Our location is absolutely fantastic and our proximity to the town center is great too. We do pride ourselves on our friendly staff, they truly are a credit to us. However, with the negatives you mention, I must defend our concept. We are very transparent with our advertising and as stated, we are a budget bunkhouse. Some of the rooms and bathrooms are small but they are adequately sized for a comfortable stay. We are a Victorian building and do suggest people drink bottled water, hence why we give complimentary bottled water in the room on arrival. There is a large water filter unit in Reception for all our guests to obtain top ups. I would doubt it was the water that caused your friends unfortunate incident. Our TV's are small, but we tend to find guests don't spend much time in their rooms. On the whole, I'm glad you had a good time here in Newquay and look forward to seeing you again next year for Boardmasters. Kind regards Team Sunnyside :)

"Seaview available"
"Front of the hotel rooms for sure are spot on for view - more noise but it was very pleasant"
"Stay somewhere else"
"205 panoramic view of the beach and green area"
"Book standard if you want a bright room or a view. But budget is fine if you aren't planning to spend any time in your room!"
