We rang and booked a room 15 minutes before arrival, and the lady on reception was warm, polite and efficient. Our room wasn't sea facing but it was affordable, a good size, clean, with great light in the morning. The facilities were fantastic, with a modern bathroom, flat screen TV and tea and coffee facilities readily available. Only a stones throw from Newquay town centre and the beach, this hotel is in a brilliant location. Would highly recommend this hotel. Great rooms, great price, great service.

Had such a lovely stay here in the half term break. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Especially the receptionist ( I think her name was Jade) they really were just great. We ate dinner one evening and had breakfast there twice and each meal was faultless. Especially the steak which was to die for. We have all said we want to go back again soon. Views from the restaurant/ bar were just incredible. Thank you so much.

Had a three night stay here with two friends two standard rooms. Rooms on 1st floor looking out at the side of the Gym but could see down to Grt Western beach. Nice & Clean & quiet, Downside towel rail in bathroom looked like oil filled electric & were very hot had to watch touching them they were that hot & also had to keep bathroom door shut as it warmed the room up as well. Thought food & drink a little expensive when not far out of the doors lots of choice although did enjoy what we had. Staff all nice & friendly lovely views from the garden over the beach & the rest of Newquay. Overall inside very nice & had a great stay but outside maybe due a bit TLC as does a lot of Newquay 30 odd yrs since last here & a little disappointed. Managed to book parking for my stay very handy but limited space think it would be advisable to book your parking when you book your room.

Hello Kenneth W, we appreciate you taking the time to leave us this feedback. Our standard rooms offer good value if you want a base to explore everything Newquay has to offer. There is an isolator switch in the bedroom to switch off the towel if it is too warm. As we come to the end I of a very busy summer we are working hard to correct any decoration or maintenance issues Hope to see you soon Team Great Western

The second time we have stayed at the Great western,both times we have had very nice spotlessly clean rooms with fantastic views of the beaches, Staff on reception are very helpful and friendly, the bar and restaurant are clean and comfortable with good food and service .The Great western hotel is an older property which could do with a traditional updated refresh .It has one of the best locations in Newquay for views, beaches, public transport is very good the train station is over the road, bus stop outside for exploring Cornwall, Newquay airport is a great little airport staff are so helpful,it is so easy to fly from London .A great walking holiday hotel.
