Looking to visit Newquay during Aug.for 3/4 night break and been looking at Esplanade Hotel and The Pentire hotel

Can you tell me are they opposite ends of Newquay, which one is nearer to the fifteen restaurant and would it be reasonable price by taxi to the restaurant.

Also where could i find out if there are any surfing comps at the time we are visiting..

Thanks

Both hotels are on the pentire headland overlooking Fistral beach and I would say about 15 minute walk into town which is a bit hilly.Can't comment on the pentire hotel but we used to stay at the esplanade, great location, good fascilitys and food, haven't been since 2005 so can't say what's it like now but by all accounts it's still good.

The Fifteen restruant is at Watergate Bay which is best reached by taking the back road past the boating lake, through Porth, over the hill down into Watergate bay( the Newquay to Padstow coastal road is fantastic). Never stopped at the Watergate bay hotel but it all looks impressive and you walk straight onto a great surfing beach so might be a consideration for accommodation.No idea about taxi fare but I reckon about a 5 mile 20 minute journey from pentire so it could be around £20 but best get quote from a taxi firm.

Thank you for your reply....so both hotels have a side view of Fistral Bay. Do you know any hotels that face straight on to the Bay

Thanks

If you want to stay near Fifteen-then Porth Beach area would be the place to stay.

Boardmasters is on 8-12th Aug for surfing comps.

The Esplanade Hotel overlooks fistral beach.I would suggest this as the better hotel for the view.

Have you already booked at Fifteen for your dates, they are already filling for August already.

Click on the link for the Hotel.
