Had to book a last minute stay at Newquay and found a great priced room at the escape. The staff made our stay so lovely, they went the extra mile with the service they provided and gave us tons of advice on the best plays to visit. Would definitely recommend them and will be sure to stay with them if...

We stayed here as part of a stag weekend! We only stayed for one night, but we found the whole place perfect for what we needed! We had a room with three sets of bunks in it and our own toilet. Living so far away we didn't arrive until late, but that wasn't a problem and the staff were more...

Stayed for a stag do. Accommodated 20 of us no problem. Very basic but what more you want. Bar is decent staying open all night which is super. Good breakfast. Very Friendly staff too. Only criticism is the beds were heavily soiled and some with blood. But if you want somewhere cheap and good this is the place.

Brilliant budget hotel we used for YFC weekend. Great location in Newquay and hotel had everything we needed. Breakfast was ideal start to day and bar was open till late. Staff are friendly and helpful. Large bedrooms are ideal for large parties like ours. All in all a first rate place!

This is the third time I've stayed here but this time I had to organise the event, Tim and his team do not disappoint, it's perfect for a stag party, big room which we all shared, it was clean and tidy, even though they are bunk beds they are comfy and fine for a group of lads. Breakfast was great...

My surf club stayed at the escape for the first time this year for three days during the university national surf competition. We were looking for a nice hostel with friendly staff and a bed after a big night out and as a place to relax or get ready to go surfing. It was perfect for this and it out...
