We had a good time at this hotel, in fact we had a great time! You can imagine the chaos when a bunch of blokes arrived here a bit drunk and tired after a long 4 hours drive to newquay. but the staff were very cool and it was nice to get a really friendly welcome on arrival. We end up staying in the bar until 4:30am, cheap drinks, friendly guests ( loads of birds!!) and great sounds. Thank god they were serving breakfast till 11am as this sorted my hng over.rooms are basic but sheets are clean, mattress is very comfortable and shower is powerful. we all went coasteering, it was fun but a bit of a hardwork after a big night out. Highly recommend it for groups!

Came here for my hen party, we arrived quite late in the evening but nothing was too much trouble for the staff. They were very friendly and considerate. Rooms, nothing luxurious but its clean and the beds are comfortable. Nom, the thai chef cooked us an amazing dinner, must try his food when you stay here. Location is perfect - everything is walking distance. Thanks Gerry for an awesome weekend! will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: big ensuite rooms for big groups

was not as nice as the web site photos, I checked into the travel lodge after one night, I wish I'd stayed there in the first place. I dont mind budget accommodation but i do want clean shower room/bedroom.

Room Tip: stay in the travel lodge down the road.

Totally aware this was budget acomodation when booking , however sheets were not clean , floors not clean, no where to hang any clothes, shower room covered in mould, no lighting in communal stairways , place was filthy throughout . was laughed at when asked to change rooms to a clean one.
the funniest thing is we had to pay a £20 deposit against damages , i saw and signed no inventory and to be honest there isnt much left in these rooms to damage . the beds are all bunk beds and crammed in to rooms , they are all wobbly , uncomfortable and smelly . was bitten several times by what i can only is fleas . the place is a skank hole ..........

much better accomodation available for just a couple of pound more a night , as we found out !

Room Tip: Travel lodge ...........

Stayed here with several others , although aware it's being advertised as budget accommodation , I did nit realise this would involve budget cleanliness , none of the sheets on the 6 beds in our room was clean , ceiling covered in mould , showeroom was disgusting , beds were 8 inches apart , no space at all, floor was dirty , no lights in stairway . All of the above was mentioned to reception / bar and they thought it was funny ! Booked into travelodge down the road for 2nd night . Would rather sleep on street in future than the escape . So glad I escaped the escape !!!!
