Excellent sea view (strongly recommend a room with a balcony), cocktail bar is a nicely finished setting (albeit very quiet when we visited), fistral bay is across the road and newquay is walkable from the hotel.

4/10 Fair

Recently renovated however they took shortcuts that made the overall experience unpleasant. The bed was uncomfortable, bouncy, the mattress was open coil. Super thin walls indoors and outdoors uneven floors resulted in a super noisy experience. Curtains were insufficient as the light was entering the room. No safety box The wifi kept disconnecting, ended up using 4G services. Raised it to reception but nothing changed. No ac No thermostat water £20 for a starndard breakfast So overall expensive for what it offers.

Lovely location but not as advertised
It is in a beautiful location. We paid for a room upgrade and it was quite a tired room. The double bed was 2 singles pushed together and was a bit of a nightmare as one of us ended up falling between then constantly. We had a patch of paint peeling off the wall, the lift had a loose tile on the floor and was generally quite dirty. The hotel cocktail bar was supposed to open at 4 then at 445 we were told it was now 5 due to staff levels. We thought we would go swimming before dinner but the pool was full of locals who had paid to use it not guests so we were refused entry. When we did use the pool the 2nd day the hot tub water was filthy. Not what we expected for a 4* hotel.

Good bits and bad bits
Good points . Hotel is in lovely position by fistrel beach. Staff friendly. Bed comfortable had a balconey sea view room woke up to sound of waves resturant serves excellent food. Clean room. Bad points. You have to pay 50.00 depodit when you get your room key you are told youll get it back but i am yet to recieve it after5 days. Then when you leave you still have to pay any other bills you have incrued they give you a invoice which shows what you have accrued but does not show up the deposit you put down . So therefore you pay over the odds. Room had a funny smell when entering so had to open door to get rid of it. Room was cold but radiators didnt seem to want to work offered a small heater but you think of the amount of money paid you could have the radiators on .overall lovely hotel but to get a parking space guarenteed you have to pay 15.00 per night to get a reserved parking space. Or else its take your chance or try and park on road in front of hotel overall will not stay here again as u have to pay the deposit. I know of no other hotel that does this .
