Well the hotel is looking a little tired now. The room was poor with dripping tapes in the sink and the bath. Towel rail was broken extractor fan didn't work, the toilet system moved when you used it. Light fitting was broken and hanging off. Door was painted with what looked like undercoat and was never finished. Couldn't be asked...

Stayed here for a deal with local paper. Excellent room, a little dated but clean and tidy. Lovely staff. Easy walking distance to Newquay town. Food good for what we paid. My only quipe was parking as we struggled to park as the bowling alley uses the same car park & there was a party happening so loads of visitors.

Promised much , sea view , with balcony, en suite, but the musty smell on entering the main lobby just about summed up the hotel. Staff were pleasant enough, but the place has certainly seen better days, Room adequate size, but bathroom grotty with hair in the bath plug hole, hot water in the sink that was a delightful shade...

My partner had innocently booked this hotel for a Champagne Candle lit dinner B&B from a newspaper promotion with the idea of it being a bit of a treat. Sadly he'd not read the reviews or he would have saved his money. We're both Cornish and it is so frustrating to find hotels like this still operating in this day...

Hotel has a beautiful outlook across the Estuary down to the Sea. Staff friendly, but the place needs lots of maintenance & TLC. Restaurant menu very limited - main course choice = 1 fish/ 1meat/ 1 vegetarian, told no alternative starter for diabetics. Breakfast good. Bedrooms average size but dated & extractor fan in bathroom very noisy.
