Positive Reviews

Some of the rooms have fantastic views.

Perched on the bank of the River Gannel, The California has an elevated position that provides excellent views over the water and the estuary. When you book ask for a room that has a view over the river.

Fistral beach is just next door.

If you are a beach-goer or a surfer this hotel is in the perfect spot, less than five minutes’ walk from Fistral Beach. Here you’ll find plenty of space for sunbathing and the waves that break are some of the best for surfing in Britain.

Polite staff and great restaurant service.

You’ll receive a warm welcome when you arrive at this hotel, and all your requests will be dealt with promptly. The staff really do their best to make you feel valued, and the table service at the hotel restaurant is excellent.

Negative Reviews

Hotel facilities are not always open.

With entertainment like a pool table and a bowling alley, this hotel might hook you in. Before you book check with the hotel management that all the facilities are open, because they can often be closed for no apparent reason.

Cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired.

The hotel offers lots of facilities, but unfortunately the staff don’t seem to be able to keep up with all the cleaning that these facilities require. Public areas of the hotel can be quite grimy at times, and many of the ensuite bathrooms have seen bette

Wi-Fi service is a bit hit or miss.

Complimentary Wi-Fi is provided, but you might find yourself having to sit in the foyer for a good connection. If staying connected is an important part of your stay in Newquay then The California might not be the place for you.
