Stayed here for one night on a cycle ride, rooms were very basic and as long as you want just a bed and a basic shower this is the place perfect for surfers but the bar is great fun and a fab atmosphere

Great place for the group. Basic rooms but what else do you need other than a place to get your head down and freshen up, would definitely visit again, great bar, great friendly staff and a superb full English breakfast! If your looking for a break in Newquay with your mates then look no further.

This Surf Lodge is amazing. I was dubious about going because I saw the bunk beds, but I went with my partner and two friends and we had an amazing time.

We stayed here for my stag weekend and it had everything we could possibly want. We were greeted on arrival by the owner Gerry, he was a perfect host along with his staff and his hotel was an ideal base to explore Newquay. The rooms were sufficient to get our entire party of 18 in one room which was ideal.... More
