Just returned from a superb week at the Esplanade Newquay. The staff worked so hard to provide us with the service we expect they were all so friendly. The bedrooms were Clean, tidy and very comfortable. As one expects the views were great overlooking the beach or surfers playground. The food outstanding yummy. Would I go again to right.

We've been to the Esplanade a few times over the years. It is good value for money. Pretty basic but the staff are really helpful and friendly. We stayed for 4 nights this year and stayed in the nicest room with a balcony. Definitely recommend!
