Had a great weekend in Newquay at this hotel. Old building but well done out. We stayed in a top floor sea view room which was excellent. Fairly spacious, clean and ensuite. Jon and Maxine were great hosts - very friendly and welcoming. Would recommend this place. We don't really know what the one negative review was all about.

Excellent hotel run by a wonderful couple if you need anything just ask them. Excellent central location with wonderful views of the beach. The town is a lovely location. And plenty to do. Cornwall is a hidden gem in England and I strongly advise people to come
