Reviewed 25 February 2012

Stayed at the Eliot last July, was very impressed by the welcoming reception and how nice the staff were. Everything was great until I noticed dried blood on my bed sheet on the first night which wasn't mine! The meals were under cooked and the meat gristly. The toast had mould on by the end of the week and the pool which was meant to be heated was not and I couldn't breathe when I climbed in it was so cold! The location however was perfect! Close to the zoo, swimming centre, shops and beaches. Such a shame the hotel let us down.

I’m not staying at the hotel right now but my elderly parents are. They arrived 24 hours ago with a coach load of senior folk and I am being told that everyone is having the time of their lives. I have spoken to the hotel staff a couple of times myself as I’ve needed their assistants on a couple of matters. I have to say that I simply cannot believe just how friendly and accommodating I have found them to be. So helpful in fact that I feel compelled to write this revue here and now. Absolute “special thanks” to Karen and June at the hotel along with the hotel Manager, I greatly appreciate your help due to you guys, I know that mum and dad will continue to have what they are describing to me as a fantastic Christmas stay over at the Eliot Hotel, Newquay.

Five day Alfa coach holiday (turkey & tinsel) to The Eliot Hotel Newquay. Ensuite bedroom, food, reception (good bus info), lounge, dance floor, dining room & service better than expected. Good games rooms. Smimming pool not used (it was November 2011). Centre of Newquay 5 minute walk, beach 2 minutes walk. Varied entertainment every night, Our favourates were Phil Lately & Spencer Reed (good combination of cabaret and dancing opportunities). Good coach travel throughout (driver Chris). Enjoyed the whole experience.

Please note - it is the ELIOT Hotel. Just drop the second 'L' !

Four of us from North Wales on an Alpha Coach Tip. The hotel is run very efficiently. Quick check in and good room key control for security. It is a little tired in places but for 2 star is more than acceptable. The food and service was spot on from ANNA the Polski waitress - dishy too! and almost perfect English after 5 years there. Wine waiter service superb.

The system for the bags to and from the rooms was very good.

The last time I was in Newquay was in 1947 aged 14 at the Hotel Victoria with Shearings ! They still have the lift that goes down through the rocks to the beach from their Lobby.

Entertainment was wonderful with Johnny Morse. Buy one of his CDs - well worth £5. As a special offer you can get the set of 2 for £10 ! Good humour and no swearing. Never knew someone could play 17 or so instruments and some most unusual. He started at age 5 years with a harmonica. Must be in his early 60's now but full of life.

You won't regret staying here.

Room Tip: Nothing known to help you

I had an excellent holiday with Alfa Travel staying at this delightful hotel. Do not be put off with first impressions as a lick of paint here and there would help. All staff treated you extremely well. The hotel was very clean and plenty of choice for meals which were very satisfying. The hotel is near the town and there is a regular bus service and ofcourse these are free with your bus pass. I would definitely recommend this hotel and feel it deserves a 3 star rating. The only down side is there is only one lift that only holds four people and you sometimes have to wait.
