Harrington Guesthouse. is about 15 minutes walk from the bus station down the road opposite the Great Western Hotel. There’s a small car park outside for three cars, and the police station is only over the road. Owner Jackie Lloyd is very friendly which is a bonus after a long journey, the guesthouse overall is a great place to stay. There’s seven bedrooms with a lounge, TV and Billiards table, I call it Billiards because all the balls have numbers on them. Room number seven is a nice room with views facing the back gardens, the bed is kingside with a light over the top. All rooms have bathrooms and shower with towels provided, and there’s a flat screen TV with free view in all the rooms. The mattresses are lovely and very comfortable, there's also room to hang up your clothes etc. Breakfast is from 9.00 until 9.30 pm, very good they are too. Each guest has a room and front door key, and there is lots of information on what to do in the area. There's a bus stop down the road in front of the Great Western Hotel to get to most places, Newquay zoo and the Boating Lake are only five minutes down the road, both of which I will review. Will most definitely stay here again as this is one of the best places in Newquay and is a real gem.
Only ten minutes from the seafront and the shops.
We stayed in a comfortable little cottage outside of Cubert, about 15 minutes by car from Newquay. It's an absolutely quite place, with just a few other houses nearby. Still you are quickly on the A3075 for excursions in all directions. And to Holywell Beach it was a nice 25 minutes walk along a small stream and the dunes, passing a camping site. The coast there is absolutely stunning and invites to hike along the coast path!
The cottage is a semi-detached cob house with four rooms - a comfortable living & dining room, a well-equipped kitchen, a large bedroom with double bed and a bathroom with bath and shower. Like almost everywhere that was an electric shower with low water pressure, but we got used to it. There's also a very small garden, but we didn't use it. In the cottage we found several maps and information which was very helpful, especially the road atlas of that region! We booked the cottage through Cornish Cottage Holidays which went really good.
I visit Newquay every year with my family and went a bit earlier than most years for easter, although the weather was unpredictable but sunny for most our stay we had a wonderful stay at the newly built Carn Brea Holiday Apartments which are very centrally located in Newquay, close to Tolcarne Beach.
A pleasant change to our usual stay in a guest house, we decided to go self catering and the Apartments were greatly priced and we saved hugely by eating in most nights then proceeding on to the the town's entertainment.
The Apartments come fully equipped with all modern high spec appliances e.g plasma screen tv, washing machine and nicely decorated. Overall we had a lovely stay and would highly recommend Carn Brea Holiday Apartments to all especially if you are looking to save on the expense of eating out all the time and the cost of parking in town, being the Apartments are very close to town and have private off road parking.
There are many great points: the price, locality to Newquay town, quality facilities, decor, saving on eating out, private off road parking, close to all towns beaches oh and the surfboard storage and washdown area came in very handy for my nephew who usually had to change in the street when staying at a guest house.
The hotel is ten minutes along the road from the seafront, guests are given their own keys for the rooms and the front door. There's 7 room all together each with tea/making facilities, hairdryers, towels & TV. The dining room is downstairs and the breakfasts are lovely, ranging from cooked to continental. Their are family room & dormitories and each has their own charm. The people who run this hotel are wondeful & I would recommend them to anyone, they also have two georgus dogs called Pippy and Topsy.
Room six overlooks the back streets and the Penhale hotel which burnt down. I love the sound of seagulls and they go quiet at night. Sometimes if you have the window open, you can hear the sea. It sounds like a rushing noise, the hotel now had digital tv.
i have been there a few times camping and once to stay in a caravan. The caravans are very standard but recommend the full camping experience. An extremely friendly and family run site, with a laid back quality.
friendly security guard (likes his bacon sarnis!)
Outdoor pool, games room, cafe.
Duration of Stay: 4 Nights, Cost: ~£90 per person
Overall my stay at the Newquay Holiday Park was between very good and excellent! The accomodation itself was clean and the facilities inside the home could not be faulted. I stayed in the Trenance holiday home which is capable of sleeping 5 - 7 people. The lounge kitchen and dining area was clean and relatively new! The bedrooms and bathrooms were relatively small however, they were all really nice inside with good furnishings.
The only problem I came across with the accomodation was the TV with built in DVD player. However, the service at reception was excellent! Within two hours we had a brand new DVD player, where even the remote control and batteries were still in their packaging!
Around the park, there was no mess and it was very quiet! The supermarket on site is very well priced and the service inside was excellent, they have everything that you would need in there! The amusement arcade is reasonable sized with many activities for younger children. There is also a bar and small cafe/restaurant. The restaurant itself is quite small and I only used it to take away food. It could be described as slightly over-priced (3 pieces of garlic bread £3.95) but the food was good.
As for activities round the park, there is very little to do until the summer months (May onwards) as the pool is not open until then. There are a few small play areas for children and the activity clubs however there is not much else.
The distance from the town centre is quite a way, however, you can catch a bus (£1.10 per person single) or get a taxi (£6 was the cheapest I got one way). At times the bus was slightly unreliable, and you had to make sure when heading into Newquay, that you were on the right side of the road otherwise the bus will not stop!
Recomendation: Take or buy some extra toilet paper!
Taking everything into account, I would recommend the accomodation to everyone!
Great views in some areas
Very clean and modern
Facilities inside the accomodation is excellent
There is a swimming pool
Great value for money
Suitable for people of all ages
First of all im actually suprised to see this hotel is still in existance considering how long ago we stayed here, so i can't really comment on how good this hotel is today, it might not even look anything like the photo. But at least i can guarrentee on the hotel not moving from the area lol
All i can remember about this hotel was the superb area it was located and the very tastey cooked breakfasts, other than that im afraid your on your own
We stayed at the Zone hostel, just minutes from the beach. The general manger there is friends of ours that we met through the Generator hostel in London, so they made sure that we were comfortable, and taken care of for our stay.
We had BBQs on the deck, drank it up in the hostel bar, and enjoyed our en-suite that they hooked us up with. It was a great place to stay and i recommend it to anyone visiting the Newquay area.
