Each of its comfortable rooms is well-equipped with en-suite facilities and mod cons.

You’ll find a wealth of things to see and do in and around Newquay. Highlights include learning to carve your first waves at one of the surfing schools, marvelling at sea creatures from across the world at Blue Reef Aquarium, and getting up close to fascinating animals at Newquay Zoo. Camel Creek Theme Park & Resort, Lappa Valley Steam Railway, and Trerice House are all a short drive away.

Had an amazing stay at the Great Western Hotel! The service was great and staff were helpful and friendly. It’s the perfect location to watch the sunset too so that’s always a plus. Will be coming back in the summer months.
