We love being able to step outside onto the tidal sands of Fistral Beach, just a stone's throw from the hotel's entrance.
The hotel overlooks Fistral Beach from the cliffs, and is 30 minutes' walk from central Newquay's shops, bars and restaurants.
By car: it's 5 hours from London, 3 hours from Bristol and 90 minutes from Exeter. There is paid private parking available at the hotel.

Service & Facilities
We were every-inch relaxed after indulging in the Quicksilver Surfer's massage, post-swim in the vitality pool. What's not to love about waking to the sound of the ocean and heading to a yoga class, before a cold-water swim!
- Indoor swimming pool
- Free Wi-Fi
Our favourite room is the luxury penthouse suite, featuring a triple balcony, king-size Hypnos bed and a private hot tub perfectly positioned for sea-gazing. It's a complete dream to sit in the hot tub with a glass of fizz to the sound of breaking waves!
