"Nice break "

5
17/10/2018

Stayed at this hotel for the last 2 nights using a Wowcher deal. £139 for a double room with dinner and a glass of proseccco on the first night and full cooked breakfast both mornings. Excellent value for money. Nice room with lovely beach view (room10). Staff were fantastic and food was amazing. 3 course dinner on the first night is off a restricted "wowcher" menu but a decent choice. I had the chicken salad as a starter and also chicken for main course. The food quality was great and the presentation was brilliant - think fine dining restaurant. Great location to explore this part if Cornwall. Will definitely visit again.

"Almost 5 out of 5"

Lovely manor hotel, staff friendly and pleasant, breakfast cooked to order so very fresh, Clean and tidy, would definitely stay again, only two complaints: 1 is the car park, not many nice size spaces available as shared with the villas on site. 2 we stayed in room 10 which was lovely and view of the beach too however woken up very early by people above, don't know what they were doing possibly exercises however constant noise through the ceiling of footsteps followed by water running from the shower. so be warned not very sound proof.

"A very agreeable able stay"

Without exception the staff were welcoming, professional and on the ball. But standing out during our visit was Sean, a young man learning his trade and clearly serious about matching the high standards of service of his more experienced colleagues. Good facilities,good food and drink and a good night's sleep all helped make this a very pleasant visit.

Stayed here for a short break and was more than impressed from the moment we arrived to the day we sadly departed as our room which we upgraded to sea view was so lovely with a balcony with a view over the bay and to the sea beyond,also the housekeeping was done everyday which was fantastic,the food was first class and the staff were also smiling and could not do enough for you,for a 3 star rating this hotel exceeds itself in every way so i would like to thank the staff for making our stay so enjoyable and we will be looking to return here in the near future

"Lovely hotel. Hope to return."

We booked to stay in September for 2 nights but stayed an extra night as it was so comfortable. The purpose of our stay was to visit the Eden Project and this was easily reached by car in approx. 30 minutes. Newquay was a pleasant 20/30 minute walk away but there is a bus stop close by. Our room was on the Second floor up some slightly steep steps but this was not a problem as we only had small cases. The room and bathroom were very good as were the cleaning staff. I would request a room on the 1st floor if staying longer or book one of the lovely self-catering villas. The small pool looked lovely but we did not get time to try it. The restaurant was very good for both breakfast and evening meal which catered for my husband's gluten free vegetarian diet. The bar was reasonably priced and the seating areas were very pleasant. The restaurant and conservatory had a lovely view of the beach. The staff were very professional and always helpful. I would like to go back in the summer time and use the hotel as a base to visit more of Devon and Cornwall.

Amazing place to stay. Standards are very high. Staff are all very helpful. Gold Star for Louisa. Nothing was too much trouble for her. She made my Birthday a very special day. The food was excellent and the room was amazing with its own balcony overlooking Porth beach. We highly recommend and we will return.

A lovely place to stay for a holiday in Newquay. Stayed there for my daughters wedding, very comfortable bed, and great shower. Food and service was first class. This hotel is highly recomended, with great views over Porth beach, with easy access to the beach. The centre of Newquay is only a short car journey away.

"Lovely stay. "

10/09/2018

A beautiful place to stay. We stayed in an apartment for a week with family & were extremely satisfied. We are definitely coming back next year. The apartment had everything we needed & kept lovely and clean. A lovely hotel with a bar & restaurant, nice warm pool & very helpful, polite staff members. Ideal location with lots of beaches and views. Some nice walks. We visited Padstow & St Ives which are lovely places to visit. Just a car journey away, not too far. Overall a wonderful place to go, everyone is so friendly & a great place for dog owners.. I've never seen so many dogs :)

This is a lovely hotel with a heated outdoor pool. The rooms were clean and the beds were lovely. I slept so well here. The conservatory was great to sit in, have a drink and just look at Porth beach. Breakfast was good with both a full Cornish breakfast as well as toast, cereals, fruition etc to help yourself too. Had a wonderful short break here and was so sad to leave.

"Amazing hotel "

23/08/2018

So just to give some context , we are a family of 5 and this was the first time ever i have booked a UK holiday due to our newborn son. I was really apprehensive as this hotel is 3 star and what you pay for in this country as opposed to what you pay and get abroad is on a much larger scale in every way. That said, I booked this hotel as it had what looked like a nice family room with bunk beds. Travelling down from Yorkshire , we checked in around noon as the room was ready. Outside of the hotel looks lovely, very quaint and pretty. Our room was amazing. Based on the 2nd floor I carried my luggage up as no lift but that adds character to the building . Lovely spacious room. Kids loved the large space as they have at home and abroab in big hotels. Location was pretty much on Porth Beach which was great, car parking spaces were there which I was worried about even in August. Pool was Greta, heated and spacious enough, kids loved it. Was closed on our last day for repairs but that's out of the hotels control. The room had the most amazing powerful shower, not sure what they are like in normal rooms. Only had breakfast which was delicious , all staff are nice, special shout out to the cleaners who are friendly and made a fuss over my daughters and son. All in all, a lovely break in Newquay and st ives as the hotel is based centrally to travel around. Loved our first time to Cornwall and the kids said it was one of their best holidays so thank you to the hotel and to staff as I know they wouldn't have enjoyed it unless it was this good. Will book again if we come down this way again, may look at the apartments and villas in ten hotel grounds as they looked amazing as well. Wouldn't hesitate to book again.

"Great short break ...lovely hotel "

12/07/2018

Booked a 3 night short break in Newquay ..found this gem of a hotel ...wasnt disappointed . Had room 26 on the 2nd floor with lovely views of the rear garden and Porth beach . The room was clean and bed was zip linked into a massive bed which was very comfortable . Bathroom had a lovely large shower which was very welcome after a busy day . We had breakfast included with our stay and wow we couldn't of asked for better . Teas and coffees , continental buffet to choose from ..fruit juices..numerous cereals incl porridge .. pastries..cold meats and cheese .. yogurts and fresh bread to toast yourself . Then came cooked breakfast which you order at your table .First morning I had full Cornish traditional which had best ingredients and was gorgeous...they had specials each morning including smoked kippers ..smoked haddock ...omelettes with choice of fillings and smoked salmon which I had with scrambled eggs yummmm...we were served on all 3 mornings by Sally who was very friendly and helpful and always had time too chat even though she was really busy . Nothing was to much trouble for her ..thank you Sally . We didn't have evening dinner but the menu looked lovely with a good selection with an early bird menu before 6.45pm.. My only negative I had was the restaurant shut at 8.30pm and when I asked if we could order bar food ..only crisps were available ... maybe chips..sandwiches could be offered ?? Overall the hotel was excellent all the staff were friendly and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble . The hotel was on the outskirts of Newquay in a quiet area. We will be returning very soon and maybe get in the inviting swimming pool next time ...

Jamie R, General Manager at Best Western Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review

"Hotel very close to Sandy Beach"

11/07/2018

My wife and I spent a week at the Porth Veor Manor Hotel and very much enjoyed our stay there, having booked a Double Room with Sea View. The Grounds at the back of the Hotel were of good size and the heated Swimming Pool located towards the front of the Hotel was if anything a little too warm especially with the hot weather. The Hotel was very comfortable with a Bar, Lounge Area and a Restaurant that afforded views across Porth Bay. All the staff were very friendly and most helpful!

"Lovely relaxing stay"

18/06/2018

Stayed in an apartment poolside. Property was amazing, staff very helpful Would definitely return again for another stay. This was our sixth stay so hopeful that says it all. Heated swimming pool outside patio doors was a real plus.

"Recommend, would stay again"

28/05/2018

I visited Newquay with friends and stayed in 1 of the apartments, the receptionist was helpful when we checked in, the apartment was great and we also made use of the pool which is heated. The walk into the town centre isn't far at all, I would recommend this accommodation to anyone visiting newquay :)

"Great Location"

30/04/2018

The hotel is in great location with great sea and beach views The beach is at the bottom of the garden through a gate and down a small path. Food was very good and the staff were excellent. Would definitely recommend

"3 night short break"

27/04/2018

Booked online for a short break in Cornwall. We were very pleased with our stay in this hotel and would definitely look to come back. The hotel is clean, the meals were excellent and the staff were all very helpful. The location just outside of Newquay near a lovely family friendly beach was just right for us.

"nice hotel, lovely breakfast"

17/04/2018

Stop there for a couple of nights, very clean hotel. Needs to tidy the common area but lovely. Breakfast was nice. Just a bit not welcoming enough, maybe out of season and so short staffed, but never see anyone behind the bar to serve so fill a bit empty. Probably better during main season.

"Secret Escapes break"

01/04/2018

Stayed 2 nights on Secret Escapes break bed and breakfast and dinner on first night. Room a little too small up in the eaves but clean and comfortable enough. Dinner a disappointment food not brilliant but staff very friendly and they did their best. Breakfast also a disappointment very basic but again staff very helpful.

"2 day holiday break"

4
01/04/2018

Very helpful staff Looked like the hotel has gone through a major re-fit, as all looked new and very clean -well done to the hotel staff/owners. We booked with secret escapes smart stay. As a consequence we think we were given a small attic room (but nice & clean and amenities as expected) due to the price we paid vs normal prices! Evening meal was included for the 1st night, and was just about OK. But breakfast was again 'budget' as you get one slice of bacon + sausage+egg+ B beans. But for what we paid you could say it was acceptable, but to me they should encourage visitors to come again & offer a hearty breakfast, and selection of pastries & fruit. Location is excellent next to the Porth beach and a good 15/20 min walk to Newquay along the side of the beach. Very nice views. Would look to stay there again if we went to Newquay, depending upon the deal.

booked this place on wowcher for the weekend for my husbands 40th for handiness as we are local but I'm 8+ months ths pregnant and couldn't travel. They included two mini champagne on arrival, breakfast and diner on on night 1. When we arrived the hotel was spotless, we upgraded to a Seaview room with huge beds for just £10 a night, the staff were lovely and at diner they had no mini bottles of champagne and just gave us a whole large bottle! The restaurant is so pretty in a conservatory overlooking Porth and we had three stunning courses. I had crab cake starter, steak and then white chocolate torte ALL DELICIOUS. The breakfast is very relaxed atmosphere with good variety.

30/03/2018

We stayed here as part of a deal and our expectations were well and truly exceeded. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. The room we had was very well maintained and we were told that they liked to keep on top of work and it showed. Everywhere was spotless. Breakfast was included and the cooked element was served with buffet style cereals, toast and fruit. Well cooked and good sized portions. We ate dinner here one night and were very happy with the choice and quality of the food. I would love to stay here again if near to Newquay. A minor criticism is the parking, there were probably just enough spaces at the time we went but it might be an issue at busy times of the year.

"Very relaxing and enjoyable "

25/03/2018

Stayed here for 1 night for our wedding anniversary (wish it could have been longer) As soon as we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. The hotel was spotlessly clean and looked as though it had just been redecorated to a very high standard and very tasteful. We stayed in room 24 one of the deluxe rooms on the top floor. Room was very clean light and airy with spectacular views. We had booked for an evening meal in the restaurant and we weren't disappointed. Food was excellent and cooked to perfection. All staff was friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble for them. We would definately recommend this hotel to anyone.

"Fantastic apartments/ Great location"

25/03/2018

Great location for both quite seaside and the hustle and bustle of Newquay. Outstanding accommodation, the beds are of brilliant quality and high quality bedding. The apartment was very clean and tidy and Best Western have thought of everything even down to the dishwasher tablets needed for the dishwasher, this was an added bonus. Very spacious apartments and will return to this great apartment for another enjoyable stay.

"Lovely hotel in a pretty seaside bay."

24/03/2018

Had a one night stay for other half's birthday and was only really expecting a typical basic hotel as it is a chain but this place feels much more like a family run independent hotel. Very good and friendly service from all staff we came in contact with (a special mention for the new fella on reception and our lovely waitress/barmaid). Lovely room, very clean, lots of wardrobe and drawer space with a great view (even in the snow!) - the room was on the second floor and I think it was a "Superior" room. The bed was incredibly comfortable and I had the best night sleep I had had in a long while. Breakfast was perfectly cooked with lots of choice of both hot and cold items. Very short walk to get down to the beach for a bracing winter walk on the sand (and snow) and up the hill to a stunning view over the bay across Newquay and over to Headland Bay. Very relaxing. Would stay here again.

19/03/2018

Booked on a deal, which came with breakfast and one dinner. Asked for a room with a bath, this was on the 2nd floor and 2 flights of stairs which we had no problem with. The restaurant was very nice, with views over the beach. the breakfasts were good, a help yourself table for juices ,cereals and fruit and a served hot breakfast with lots of choices, i had the smoked salmon special on both days and the full english was very good too. Pleasantly surprised with our included 3 course dinner, good choices and tasted wonderful. The staff were very nice, particularly in the restaurant, friendly and great service. The only downside was the amount of parking available and wondering if we would find a space when we came back to hotel at night,as a lot of spaces were reserved for the outside villa guests.

"Great few days"

11/03/2018

We arrived to a very warm welcome at reception, the room was newly renovated and a very comfy bed and newly refurbished shower room. Plenty of tea coffee milk provided. The breakfasts were amazing, bacon cooked to perfection (crispy) plenty of choice. Lovely evening meal and pleasant conservatory area to sit and relax in. I particularly liked the style of the staircase and lovely stained glass windows in the entrance hall. Many thanks to all the staff between Sun 18th and Wed 21st February 2018.

08/03/2018

Visited Cornwall with my boyfriend for my birthday, right from when we came in we were made to feel very welcome. The hotel was picturesque and the staff very friendly. Our room was quite large and very tidy and the shower was lovely- my boyfriend wouldn't shut up about how nice it was! We had breakfast included and it was delicious, all of the staff were lovely but a special thank you to Luisa who looked after us at breakfast both days, nothing was a problem for her and she always had a smile on her face! Newquay town is a short five minute drive from the hotel which is really helpful. The hotel itself had a beautiful beach/sea view and there was plenty of parking. Reception kindly provided a toothbrush because I forgot mine, and there is a large range of other things they offer. The room itself had a decent hairdryer and coffee machine as well, perfect! Furthermore, the hotel has a computer and a variety of board games, a nice restaurant and bar, as well as a garden- plenty to do if you just want to relax in the hotel. Overall very pleased, we'll come back soon!

"Two night stay 28 February "

03/03/2018

From the moment we walked into the hotel we were made to feel welcome. As we arrived very early we parked up and went a walk into Newquay which is not to far away. When we got back we got are keys to room 18. Lovely sized room which was very clean and overlooked the pool. Bed was comfortable and plenty of tea and coffee. All the food we had was excellent and would recommend to use the restaurant. I can't recommend this place enough. Regards to all the staff who made are stay brilliant. We even got to see snow on the Beach. Btw my phone network is EE which was fine.

"Beautiful weekend break"

03/03/2018

Just returned from a beautiful weekend away. This was booked as a Groupon offer which we upgraded to sea view rooms. Our deal included evening meal on the first night. Our meal was lovely so much so that we decided to eat at the hotel on our second evening. Breakfast was of a very high quality too. Many thanks to all staff especially Louisa who all went out of there way to make sure we were well looked after.

"Disappointing!"

1
01/03/2018

Firstly don't stay here if you want to be in touch via mobile phone, no signal what so ever! The single room describes as beach view, is small and beach view is there but way in the distance! Bathroom is nice, but sink plug hole obviously in need of a clean! As was the toilet brush! Not pleasant. Disastrous meal in the restaurant, as ordered fish & chips which was cooked by a stand in chef who used smoked haddock instead of normal white fish! Tasted like paraffin! Sent that back to get a chick pea curry which contained no chick peas what so ever! Plenty of sultanas and sweet potato but not a chickpea in sight! Waitress was apologetic and did not charge me for the food. Website promises so much more than actual experience. Away on business so needed good phone signal!! Poor service. Breakfast was pleasant though, I expect the normal chef was back.

"Great Woucher Deal"

5
24/02/2018

We've stayed in the Porth Veor villas many times and always thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the very well appointed two & three bed villas but this was our first experience of a room in the hotel and we weren't disappointed. This was a woucher deal and represented very good value with two nights B&B plus one three course dinner and two small bottles of Prosecco. Our room was spotless and we found the large bed (two joined singles) very spacious and comfortable. There was plenty of room for our clothes with a small pine wardrobe and four drawer chest and the en-suite shower room with a walk in shower was a good size complete with loo brush, often sadly missing!! (see my recent review of Carbis Bay Hotel) We also had a decent view from the single window which looked out across Porth Beach. Breakfast was self service for fruit and cereals but then orders taken for tea/coffee and the main course of a 'select' your own full English or as we did, ask about the specials which on one day included kippers or smoked salmon and the second poached haddock. We opted for the fish courses and were extremely happy on both occasions. Our first nights included dinner was three courses but after the first two neither of us could manage a sweet we were so full with the generous portions received.. Although we originally had other plans, we were impressed enough to book again for the second night and went for a two course option including a bottle of house wine @ £45 for two. Again we weren't disappointed, The King prawns were delicious and my sirloin steak, although slightly overcooked was so melt in the mouth It didn't bother me one iota. My wife chose fish followed by a cheesecake dessert which again was a pleasure to eat - fortunately I was allowed to share!! We have eaten in the restaurant several times before during previous visits and know the ingredients are locally sourced - on many of those occasions we've also had meals in some of the more well known celebrity restaurants in both Padstow and Watergate Bay. We've commented at those times that our best meals have been those taken in Porth Veors Beaucliffes restaurant and it certainly lived up to our expectations again this time - Well Done chefs and waiting staff, other staff we met were also very friendly so a big 10 out of 10 from us. This is a small family run business and we will certainly be returning again, my only negative comment, a checkout time of 10.00am is a little early though it does say please ask for an extension which I did, so not really a problem.

"Overnight stay"

20/02/2018

We booked a late deal here for dinner, bed and breakfast and were delighted. Special praise for the food there- such high quality, beautifully cooked and presented and lots locally sourced! Also the staff should be commended for being so very friendly and helpful- we will definitely be back

18/02/2018

Great location, superb views and within easy reach of a short walk to a lovely sandy beach. A very hearty breakfast provided, which will set you up for the day. The team had to cater for a very large party and managed us perfectly. Charleston a great little place to visit. Staff really friendly with a particular BIG thanks to Luisa.

"Superb hotel, food gorgeous & lovely staff - Hot Water the only issue!!"

16/02/2018

Stayed here for business 13th Feb and had room 18 and was gorgeous. Greeted by friendly staff and made to feel really welcome. Place looked immaculate on the way to the room and the room itself was great. Ran the hot tap and this seemed fine but couldn't get shower hot at all (this is about 7pm). Reported issue to reception and was moved to room 29. The water was at best luke warm and really let the stay down. The cooked breakfast was divine and really tasty. I think the "continental" side could be enhanced with some meats and cheeses and perhaps croissants and pain au choc's but that only being super picky.

"Highly recommend this place"

5
12/02/2018

Stayed here for a last minute mini break and couldn't be any more pleased with the place. Staff were very friendly and welcoming, and upon arrival we where upgraded to a better room due to the hotel being renovated. The rooms are clean and decorated to a high standard, I am surprised that this place is only a 3 star as this hotel is better than some 4 stars I have been to. Breakfast was fantastic too!

"A Homely Family Affair!"

23/01/2018

The Smiths of Travelsmith cut no corners. No mediocrity, no half-measures. Like phoenix from its ashes they have breathed new life into this romantic smugglers' nest which had been run down to dilapidation by its inconscientious previous "owner". The 240° conservatory opened up breathtaking new vistas, the restaurant serves delicious dinners and a finger-licking breakfast, the rooms are spacious and comfortable and the bar is wickedly inviting! The service is intimate and personal. Even buildings have their destiny, not just beings! The Smiths are the best thing to have happened in the history of Porth Veor Manor! They guarantee a stay with which you can't go wrong.

"Family wedding."

03/01/2018

We stayed at the Porth Veor as a family member was getting married there. It was a great weekend and the hotel could not have been more helpful, the reception went on until 5am and the staff were gteat. Lovely hotel and outstanding views.

"Hotel was okay but attitude of staff was not great."

14/12/2017

My partner stayed at this hotel whilst working with a local company and whilst staying he ate his supper within the hotel every evening. He had 3 meals with you and on the 4th night himself and a colleague ate mussels alongside their meals. Both of them became ill over night, vomitting for the following 24 hours. The hotels answer to this was "well sorry" and no hint of concern for the fact he had to miss a day of work and spent the day in his room being violently sick. Is this the way you treat people who have been made unwell by your food? No hint of compensation or empathy. A fabulous way to run a business

"Nice break"

4
13/12/2017

Friendly staff. Nice room. Stayed on a 'deal' basis which included meal on first night - shame our food choice was a bit below expectation in taste - but can't fault food presentation and service. Lovely setting near Porth beach - would return.

"Quick Work trip"

4
05/12/2017

Arriving much later then I had originally advertised and being the last guest to check in would normally make for a frosty reception. However not here, all of the staff, without fail, where friendly and welcoming. The rooms are a good size in the main hotel with great high ceilings. The ensuite is modern and clean providing everything you need to be ready for another day of meetings. Finally the breakfast offered a wide range of cereal and the cooked to order Cornish Breakfast was very well received.

"Return to an old favorite"

We have not visited Porth Veor Manor since it joined Best Western. Just as good as ever. Like visiting an old friend. Staff friendly. Rooms clean. Food top class. A well socked bar. What more can I say? What more can you ask?

wow , what an absolute gem of a place ,we stayed for a weekend break as we live only 80 mins away and we will definitely be returning to this place, the whole experience from arrival to the moment we left was exceptional . we ate in the restaurant on the first evening and i can honestly say that this was the best hotel food i have ever had !!!, we ate out on the second night and wished we wouldnt have! the breakfast was also superb and the staff at this hotel are fantastic , nothing is too much trouble. well done to the people who run this place is really is a pleasure to go somewhere that is run so efficiently.

"Hidden gem"

08/11/2017

We fell upon this hidden gem via wowcher. An aging but well maintained hotel with sea views, on the bay of Porth. Staff are second to none for helpfulness and politeness. The food is excellent including a good evening meal and breakfast menu. Good access to Newquay, Perranporth, Boscastle and St Ives. We would definitely return.

Excellent service at this hotel. Very helpful staff, gladly providing anything asked for. The cleanliness was brilliant, spotlessly clean everywhere. Good facilities all round, fantastic garden would be idyllic in summer. We had a room with five beds which in itself can be hard to find, however, the room was still comfortably spacious. The double bed was not the most comfortable but served two kids perfectly well. And although breakfast was very good, the coffee at breakfast was unpleasant. But this hotel doesn't deserve to be marked down, hence, a well deserving 5 stars. We would definitely return.

Stayed here Friday-Sunday. The room was lovely and had a huge bathroom. Great view over the pool area. Staff very friendly and perfectly positioned for a short weekend away. Easy access to new quay and to explore local towns. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant was fabulous. Car park very very busy and hard to park but spaces being take minibuses taking up a space and a half! Management sorted this very quickly

We stayed on a Thursday night in low(ish) season. The hotel was quiet which was great for us and we got a nice room on the second floor. The room was a good size and overlooked the swimming pool and houses on the hillside. We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. Both were delicious, the food was a definite highlight. The facilities were all good if a little tired - all in all okay at the price. A great location (a five minute walk downhill to the beach) and lovely staff helped make this a pleasant stay.

We had a great holiday in Cornwall and the Porth Veror. Manor Hotel was a great base to stay at to visit all the lovely beaches and surrounding villages & towns. The food was of a great standard every evening and the breakfast was lovely with lots to choose daily from the menu. My only complaint would be the rooms looks fine on the surface but they could have been a lot cleaner and I would surguest a deep clean is needed from time to time!!! Staff are helpful and pleasent at all times. I loved Cornwall and will revisit again next year.

My husband and i stayed here for long weekend recently. we found the hotel to be very clean, our room and en-suite was very clean and comfortable. the towels in the bathroom are lovely and fluffy. We equipped with everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. the breakfast was excellent and also we had a meal in the restaurant which was amazing. would definately recommend to friends and family and would love to go back. thank you.

"ANY INTERNATIONAL TRAVELERS WHO WOULD CHOOSE TO SLEEP IN A ROOM OF VOMIT AND PAY TO DO SO?"

1
21/09/2017

What more can I say? Why would management knowingly not tell international guests that the room had been vomited in two days before?The guests could at least attempt to find alternate accommodation and even after management's attempts to clean the room, it had made no difference, so a fan was placed outside the room door to swish the vomit particles around in the room. Management did not admit to the vomit smell, but after our opening the room door, they offered to find us alternate accommodation of totally insulting standards at the Beachcomber apartments!!!!!! where the lady there told us about the vomit episode saying it's not their fault. Well, that doesn't mean we have to sleep in it. Tear up the carpet, buy a new bed, get an air conditioner . Do what you need to do to maintain a service you are offering and expect 4 star payment for. Misleading star grading on the internet, as they are not 4 star only their cottages are. Find another place to stay. Definitely moved on to better accommodation we found on our own. Highly irritating, inconvenient, unreliable and disappointing. After having to go back there to "ask" for our money back, which was paid in advance online, it was refunded.

Jamie R, General Manager at Best Western Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback. As mentioned at the time, the room was inspected the morning of your arrival having been professionally cleaned after a previous guest had departed and not reported the incident. On the morning of your arrival the appeared to be of saleable standard after the considerable professional cleaning that had been undertaken to rectify the damage that had been sustained. We shared your frustration when on check in this was not the case and offered accommodation at our sister site in Watergate Bay which was declined by yourselves. I apologise for not being on duty at the time as this would have helped to speed up the refund procedure but the staff on duty did all that was possible at the time and the room is now thankfully refurbished.

To be able to stay in a Hotel that is close to Newquay but not in the busy and uninviting part is a pleasure. You can just stroll down to the beach or take a 35 walk into Newquay. The welcome at the hotel is second to none. The owner introduced himself which was really good and all the staff were excellent. The rooms were very clean and most comfortable. Just cannot fault this hotel.

"Big Family Group"

04/09/2017

On holiday with a big family group we had rooms in the hotel, beach view villas and an apartment in the beach house. The villas and apartment proved fantastic value for a lot of modern useable space all very well equipped and very comfortable. There is a great bar area but it is usually unmanned so not easy to use. At breakfast the buffet was not topped up during the morning and some breakfast ingrediants not availble day after day (there is a supermarket in town). These are minor complaints relating to the level or ability of staff rather than anyhting that had an impact on our stay. Brilliant Location and Fantastic Villa and Apartment Accommodation.

Spent a week here with my children. The hotel is in a great location for the beach and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. Thank you Jamie, Sharon Kane, Mark and Luisa (and all the other staff whose names I can't remember!) for looking after us so well. The hotel was very clean, the rooms well equipped and we had everything we needed. I can recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a relaxing break in a lovely location, with superb views and excellent service and food. Would love to return.

09/08/2017

The hotel is nice, rooms clean and staff friendly and helpful. But we found the food in the restaurant not as good starters and dessert fine but the mains were a little boring and very rushed to your table. As soon as you finished your starter the main was sent straight out, giving you no time to digest the starter. We found the coffee in the morning very bitter and didn't taste very nice. This was our second stay at the hotel. As part of the the day package we visited Jamie Oliver's 15 restaurant at Watergate Bay. It was very good we had a voucher of £50 towards the food, we decided to have the tasting menu which was excellent but did cost £65 per person. The area has lots to see and do so the hotel is placed in a great area and has lovely views.

Jamie R, General Manager at Best Western Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback, it is always appreciated. We apologize that you felt rushed, it is never our intention for guests to feel rushed through their meal and in the past we have been criticized for slow service where delays between courses have been too long! We have also just switched coffee supplier as the existing products were no longer the same quality and we are delighted with the feedback we are now getting so hopefully future guests will continue to enjoy this.

We had a sea view , superior room and although we had to climb 2 flights of stairs to get to it the view was stunning, over the gardens and beach.The meals in the hotel were very good and the staff in the dining room and bar were lovely.I would happily stay here again. The only thing I would l suggest to alter is the reception.I think it would be more welcoming if the area was more open with the staff facing the customer instead of facing away from you. Overall I would recommend this hotel.

24/07/2017

We booked a double room with a sea view, this was on the 2nd floor in quite a small room with the sea view. The room was clean and comfortable and perfectly adequate. Breakfast was also fine but the coffee could have been better! The conservatory looked a nice place to enjoy a quiet moment and the pool would be welcome on a hot day. We walked to Porth beach in the afternoon which took no more than 5/10 minutes. In the evening we walked to Lusty Glaze beach for a gig, again about 10 minutes. This hotel is absolutley fine but would not be quite my usual taste, however the location worked brilliantly for us on this occasion.

We stayed just the one night on a touring holiday in Devon and Cornwall. Provided that people have a car, it is probably more enjoyable to stay at Porth Veor Manor Hotel than in Newquay itself. Our room was comfortable and well appointed. Our dinner was very good indeed and we also enjoyed our breakfast. Service was friendly and efficient.

"Lovely location"

13/07/2017

The hotel offers all the usual facilities. We stayed in one of the hotel houses. A two bedroomed with sea view was an upside down house so the balcony benefitted from a beach/sea view. The sea view houses are ideal if you don't want to overlook the pool area which is ideal for family's. The only issue to be aware of is that in our house the en suite did not have a shower, just a bath and the main bedroom just a shower, no bath. This was a little inconvenient as we were two couples travelling and would prefer two showers. The hotel is 200 meters from Porth Veor beach and ideal for exploring Cornwall. The house were well equipped - no washer but the hotel offers a laundry service.

I stayed in room 26 and just wanted to send a massive thank you to the staff of the above Hotel. My experience from booking the hotel through to the excellent service was amazing. The room was lovely, comfortable, great view , lovely bathroom, clean and bright. The bed was a king-size and had plenty of space, which was great as it was very warm in Cornwall. The view of the conservatory was just lovely and made me feel so relaxed straightaway, as was the view from our table at dinner. The beach is a very short walk away and is a flat sandy beach with a good pub, The Mermaid, at the end which meant you could sit out in the sun. The staff were brilliant right down the special Mojito made for us!!! by the lovely smiling waitress . The rugby was on the following morning at 8.30 and being avid fans they even set up our breakfast in the bar area where the TV was - what more could you ask. This is customer service at the highest standard and so appreciated. I cannot imagine coming back to this part of Cornwall again and not staying here. Thank you so much.

Fantastic location, cannot believe this is a 3 star hotel. The breakfast room over looks the beach, lots of choice fruit, croissants, yoghurts, cereals, porridge, and the full English was great. I asked the waiter if he could get me some cream for my coffee and it was on my table in two minutes, it's the little things that matter. I cannot recommend this hotel enough, comfortable bed and powerful shower, spotlessly clean and up to date room with tea and coffee making facilities, lots of parking and friendly staff, what more could you ask for. I'm going back next year with my family. It's a very short walk to Porth beach from the hotel so great for people with families and it also has a great pool.

09/07/2017

We stayed here as a family of 6 for 3 nights in 2 of the two bedroom villas. The beds were small (a double bed is just too small why couldn't they supply queen size?) and noisy springs so haven't slept much in the 3 nights we were here. The continental breakfast in the hotel was poor. I had to ask for more bread to toast & the fruit salad looked like it was made days ago. Positive points were free car parking on site & good wifi. There was however no phone reception in the villas. Had dinner in the hotel the first night. When I made the reservation I wanted to book for 6.30pm. He said no 6.45pm. When we went at 6.45pm the menu was more expensive. They obviously wanted us to spend more. Meal was average.

Jamie R, General Manager at Best Western Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback. We are obviously disappointed to hear you found certain aspects of your stay did not meet your expectations. We can assure you our fruit salad is made fresh daily and also as the continental buffet is self service, guests are invited to help themselves to as much from the buffet as they wish, obviously during busy times top ups are required and our team are always more than happy to assist with these as quickly as possible. In the evening our early diner menu is available until 7pm so booking at 6.45 still qualifies for the early diner menu which is different to our A La Carte menu that is available from 5.30 - 8.30 when the restaurant closes. Having recently had our annual assessment from Visit England, we are pleased to report that the standard and size of our beds continues to meet and exceed their requirements to maintain our 4 star gold ratings and we have found that the size of beds offered (4' 6") continues to ensure that the bedrooms enjoy a good flow and don't feel too cramped or small.

"Disappointing Result"

22/06/2017

This is a review regarding one of the holiday rental flats. We have recently returned from 4 Beach Road Porth after a weeks holiday. This flat is best described as a basement flat. There is virtually no outside space and small quadrangle with walls on all sides reaching to the floor above. Unfortunately for us I mis interpreted the pictures shown relating to this flat and wrongly assumed there was a sea view. I wasn't aware that the sea view is actually from the car park at the front of the building. The flat being right at the back. The picture of the block of flats does not give the impression of there being 12 flats in the building. I found it very misleading. The flat had a vague musty damp smell even tho we had the windows open at all times and kept the doors ajar as requested. In the information the hotel is listed as being 250yds from the building well more like 500yds and what isn't said is just how steep the incline is up to the hotel. Altogether very disappointed

Booked here for one night. . Hotel was lovely great location unfortunately for us the extra big bed ( two single beds ) was a massive let down. . So please don't get room 20 it was a bit of a sweat box. The a la carte dinner was exceptional but declined on the breakfast which was 30 quid. Bit overpriced !

Jamie R, General Manager at Best Western Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback. We do offer fans for guests if they find rooms too hot which given the recent heat wave is something we have done a lot as not all rooms have air-conditioning. These are available on request. We are delighted you enjoyed your evening meal but are confused as to where you found the price for your breakfast, if you book a room on a room only basis, breakfast is offered for £12.95pp and this includes both the continental and full Cornish good breakfasts as well as tea or coffee which we feel is great value given that your food is cooked to order using fresh locally sourced, award winning produce. We do hope that you will stay again and enjoy a breakfast with us next time.

Attended a friends wedding here so decided to stay at the hotel as well. The hotel is a nice size and also has apartments and a small outdoor swimming pool around the hotel. Each apartment has its own car parking space and then extra spaces for hotel guests. The rooms are ok, nice and clean and our one was a good size. The wedding was lovely and ran smoothly and the food was very nice. Breakfast the next day in the conservatory was lovely. The sun was shining and the choice of breakfast items was really good. The reception staff were really helpful. The hotel is in a lovely location within easy reach of the beach and countryside ! The rooms all had tea/coffee making facilities ( and biscuits) !!

We booked this hotel, a double room for a three night holiday, and I must say it was wonderful, the room was spotless and very spacious, the bed was massive and so comfortable, lovely pool view room we got, only downside was there was no elevator to get to the room, and it was quite a fleet of stairs to climb, but overall loved it. During our stay whenever we went out, we would look forward to coming back to the hotel. And all in all, we booked during a very good offer making it all the more amazing!

Friendly staff, clean and well placed to explore the beautiful coastline with a bus stop 5 minutes away for the Newquay to Padstow bus, great if you are doing any coast path walks. Our room had a lovely view over the beach. The breakfast was excellent. This was a half price break bought as a present to us from friends. I didn't have great expectations but was very pleasantly surprised and would definitely go again. There is a pub on the beach nearby doing good food that, although a bit pricey is also well worth a look especially in a nice evening.

Friendly welcoming and helpful staff. Clean well presented villa with beach view. Major draw for us was the heated pool but it was closed due to chemical issues for our last three days which seriously detracted from our enjoyment. That aside no complaints.

Jamie R, General Manager at Best Western Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Many thanks for your kind feedback. We shared your disappointment when we had to take the decision to close the pool as the chemical levels moved outside of the safe parameters for it to be used. The safety of our guests is of paramount importance and we have to follow strict procedures regarding pool maintenance and when something occurs such as this, we can't rush the chemistry unfortunately. We are pleased though that the pool is now back to normal and we hope you are able to return soon and enjoy it.

We were greeted by our receptionist and this was a pleasant experience. Be warned if you didn't know that there is no lift, but luckily our room was on the first floor. And our room was comfortable with a lovely firm bed. Tea, coffee and biscuits await you. Breakfast was included on our deal and this was mightily good. I went for the Cornish Full Breakfast and they are happy to have you add an extra egg if you like! We also had dinner here and this was good; my wife had a fish affair which she loved! I had a lamb shank which wasn't quite fall off the bone. All in all, a great experience and we felt well looked after. My wife has a wheat and sugar intolerance and the hotel always had options for her.

We were given this stay as a present. Lovely hotel, very welcoming and easy to find. Room was really spacious and was well thought out. Tea and coffee making facilities were provided along with a hairdryer which is useful. Loads of storage cupboards. Bathroom was really big with a lovely walk in shower that was really hot. Loved the cupboard under the sink as many hotels do not provide anywhere to store your toiletries when you are away. Only criticism was that the bed was very soft and you could hear the noise from the room above. Breakfast was lovely in a conservatory that looked out to Porth beach. Location is great with a 20 min walk into Newquay or couple of minutes to Porth beach.

First impressions of the hotel as we drove up to the door were that it is a lovely looking building. Perched up quite high in Porth it looks very impressive with the conservatory. Our check in was very welcoming. Our room with Seaview (28) was big, contained everything we needed, lovely bathroom, settee in front of large TV. The whole hotel is very tastefully furnished, lovely prints and paintings everywhere showing the history of the area, immaculately clean and beautifully and comfortably furnished. We ate in the restaurant the first night and the 3 course a la carte menu was so good that we booked in for the next night too even though we had planned to try somewhere else. Must be a very good chef, quality, choice and presentation of the meals were excellent. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Luisa a lovely Romanian woman, very professional as well as the above adjectives! Bed was very comfy though didn't sleep too good the first night because of a storm, made up for it on the second night! Breakfasts also excellent. I honestly can't think of anything to fault with this hotel and we vwill definitely return.

My niece and I spent 2 nights at this hotel and we were both very pleased with the rooms we were allocated. They were very clean, also the bathrooms, and nicely furnished. We had breakfast in the restaurant on 2 mornings and there was a wide choice of food. The staff were friendly and helpful and we had a key to the front door as we were out quite late on the Friday night. The grounds were very attractive and with the beach just minutes away, it would have been perfect for families. We didn't get to try the restaurant in the evenings or the bar. The only drawback seemed to be the lack of signal for mobile phones and wi-fi. I would quite happily return.

24/10/2016

1) Arrival was straightforward using the Sat Nav (TOM TOM) instructions. 2) On arrival at the hotel the check in staff were extremely pleasant and friendly and helped me on numerous occasions during my stay, a real credit to the hotel. 3) All area's including the bedrooms were always well kept, tidy and clean. 4) My room (No 19) was clean and well maintained (See the photos). 5) There is a large free car park which surrounds the hotel 6) The free wifi didn't really work in my room, so to send work e-mails, I needed to stand in the corridor. 7) Breakfast is an additional fee which is cheaper if booked in advance. 8) As a business guest, I needed to leave early, (7.30am) breakfast however only starts at 8.00am. So even though I had paid for it I never actually received any. On leaving the hotel I was informed by Mr Jamie R (The General Manager) that you can in advance book a take away breakfast. 9) My business partner who did stay after 8 am said that the quality of the breakfast was average for a Best Western, in that he ordered kippers and poached eggs and received just one ½ a kipper and a single poached egg rather than the normal whole kipper and a pair of poached eggs ( See the photo) 10) I used the evening meal service (Beaucliffes restaurant) which opens from 5:30 PM -8PM. The food was good but higher priced than I had expected, starters are £5-7, Mains £16-23, puddings £7 so with a glass of wine that's about £35 a head. There is an early bird special with a starter and a main starting from £17 (5:30 to 7:00pm) But only finishing work at 6 meant that this wasn't an option. Kids meals are £7 and are only available from 5.30-7.30, there are also Kids eat free offers .This “Kids Eat Free” offer is valid 23 July to 04 Sept and 23 to 31 October 2016. So not so great if your half term dates are later than this for instance in Lincolnshire or Manchester. 11) There is a local pub nearby on the beach called the Mermaid Inn that does excellent local seafood dishes at about £10 a main 12) Location, the hotel is located outside of Newquay about a mile or more but it is next to Porth Beach ( see the photo from the room) 13) On leaving at 7.15am I could not checkout as checkout open about the same time as breakfast. On returning home Mr Jamie R informed me that an express check out service is available for all guests with a requirement to leave early. The form for express check out is provided in the guest information folder or from reception on request. ( I didn't see the form in the pack or knew that one could be requested as I thought that 7:15 wasn't that early.) In summary the hotel scores 7/10 for a good Best Western that just needs some better business considerations to match others in the brand.

"A generally enjoyable stay"

21/10/2016

A good location close to the beach and coastal walks. There are two limited car parking areas, with the hotel located at the top of a fairly steep hill so if the top car park is full, there is some walking involved. There is however a no parking area in the top car park where guests can be dropped off, and luggage can be unloaded/packed if necessary before parking elsewhere. The Reception is close to the entrance and the staff were welcoming and helpful. We were located on the 2nd floor and unfortunately given the historic nature of the building, there are no lifts. The stairs are steep but assistance is available with your luggage on request. We had a beach/seaview room which was good, clean and reasonably spacious, although with a very small TV. Free Wi-Fi was available. The soundproofing between rooms is very poor and we had one person who could snore for England on one side and a couple who were engaging in a scene from When Harry Met Sally on the other, the latter being more amusing. Notwithstanding the neighbouring sound effects, we still managed a decent night's sleep. Breakfasts were good and served to the table. We dined in the restaurant during our stay and while the food or service was not to the highest standards, it was satisfactory and the meals were tasty and plentiful. One comment is that the service in the restaurant could be more welcoming as there is an inconsistency. From a customer perspective, it is irritating to feel that you are an inconvenience and equally to leave the restaurant without a friendly word. The nearby bar was usually unstaffed but after standing for a short while, someone would appear and serve. Again, it was not welcoming so we only used this the once. Porth Veor Manor is in a good location and notwithstanding the few irritations, we would consider staying again at some point in the future.

Jamie R, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback. We will use this moving forward to ensure our service is always improving for future guests. Due to the time of year staffing levels have to reflect the number of guests staying with us and our front of house team work between the restaurant and bar but are always happy to assist guests wherever they can. We hope to see you with us again in the future.

The wedding was on of the most friendly we have been to, helped by the excellent hotel staff especially the gentleman who organised everything. The food was good . I realise the meal was done by outside caterers but the breakfast we had was excellent . A very enjoyable time alltogether

Jamie R, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your kind review. We really enjoyed the day as well and we're really glad that our guests had as much fun too! It is unusual for us not to cater for a wedding but it is really good to hear you enjoyed breakfast before departing. Hopefully we will see you again at the hotel with us in the future at some point.

Booked into the hotel for a short break to celebrate our respective birthdays in newquay. The staff were helpful. The rooms very clean and comfy. Our double bed was actually two singles pushed together. This didn't bother us but might some couple's. The bed was extremely firm too, absolutely no give, be warned ! Breakfast was very good though, served with a nice filtered coffee. Yes we would stay again.

Stayed here for 2 nights on business Quick easy check in. Free wifi. Good fresh breakfast available. Didn't use the restaurant though Beer prices quite high! Good clean comfy room. Tea & coffee facilities. Black mould in the shower grout that really needs addressing. All in all a pleasant stay

Jamie R, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your review, it's good to hear that you enjoyed your time here. We have been working hard after a very busy summer to address the wear and tear in the rooms including the grouting and this will continue into the winter months as the season quietens down! As for the beer prices, compared to town we are competitively priced and try to offer a good range of choice in both premium lagers and local ales and ciders. We will keep an eye out though to ensure we continue to offer the best value we can.

"The Menu"

16/10/2016

I have only given average for the hotel as we stayed 4 nights and it was the same menu and specials every night when i asked a member of staff about it we were told they only change the menu every 3/6 months this will put us off staying any longer then 1/2 nights again

Jamie R, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback. We would wish to clarify that we have a seasonally changing menu and run 2 evening menu's throughout the year to offer variety. We also have a team of chef's who are also happy to offer the option of meal requests should the ingredients be available and the demands of service allow. Daily specials do change but can repeat on sequential days if they do not sell out on the first night. Your feedback has been shared with the team and we do hope you return to us again in the future.

"Disappointing meal in God's waiting room"

11/10/2016

We visited Porth Veor Manor Hotel for an evening meal as pert of a gourmet breaks package whilst staying in nearby Watergate bay, the whole meal lacked any attention to detail right from the wine being left unpoured on the table with no cloth around the ice bucket to prevent it dripping as I poured it myself. The starter was satisfactory, we both had crab saled which said it came with lemon mayonnaise, I expected this to be served on the side when I asked the waitress she said it was mixed in to the crab, my husband main course was fine, I ordered the steak which came with wilted spinach and baby vegetables, the chef clearly thinks that putting spinach leaves under a hot steak will do this job for him! We didn't bother with dessert as my husband's glass had been empty for some time by then, and we were both growing frustrated with the lack off service from the staff, we asked for the bill which was incorrect and then asked to see the manager, we were told there wasn't one on duty, the waitress said the mistake on the bill was not her fault, it was rectified and we left and ate dessert elsewhere. Best Western you need to train the staff in customer service in this hotel.Such a shame it was like a visit to an old peoples home with no staff on reception or in the bar.

Jamie R, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback. We take all feedback on board and will use it to improve guest experiences in future. We can assure you that our team of Chefs are quite competent in their knowledge and it is disappointing that on this occasion the service and meals did not meet your expectations. We do hope you will consider staying with us again so that we can demonstrate we are worthy of the usually complimentary reviews we receive.

Booked a one night stay in a Hotel, reason to book a Hotel and not a b&b was so when I arrived after a long day I could relax and have and evening meal. How wrong was I !! As I checked in I was told restaurant was fully booked so had to drive and find some where to eat. After getting back to Hotel at 8 o clock restaurant had three couples in restaurant.

I have to this is the 27th year that I have spent holidays at this hotel I have always found the staff very friendly. The meals in the restaurant are excellent It is a real home from home Top marks. Great views fro the conservatory. A very pleasant setting. Looking forward to return stay June 2017

Our room was lovely. Clean and spacious. Staff are great - breakfast was plenty - cooked to perfection - the dining area is bright and they use crisp white tablecloths which will always get my vote. The heated outdoor pool was lush. We are local to Newquay and stayed over as a treat - we were not disappointed. The only criticism - well its an observation not a criticism really - but the furniture in the bar/conservatory area is outdated - the old wicker type - but saying that we had a lovely time - would certainly recommend.

"POOR CHOICE FOR BUSINESS - POORLY TRAINED STAFF"

20/09/2016

I stayed at the hotel, along with 5 colleagues, for 5 nights in mid September 2016. Although pleasantly situated and ideal for holidays the rooms were not set up for any business activity and only had a small dressing table. On a positive note, the internet speed was good and the restaurant food very pleasant. Problems however included the fact that breakfast didn't start until 0800 and the hotel bar was closed at 2225 one night despite the staff sitting in it drinking. When questioned that we were residents, we were informed that we could have a drink but we would have to take them outside or to our rooms. The worst experience by far was the attitude of most of the staff who couldn't raise a smile throughout the whole 5 days and made you feel that you weren't at all welcome. Some almost tutted if you asked for something specific at breakfast; they obviously didn't want to be there.

"Excellent, top marks !"

A welcoming comfortable hotel with outstanding staff,nothing too much trouble for them, rooms comfortable and spacious, during our stay our room got flooded by an absolute downpour of biblical proportions, and upon informing the duty manager, withing five minutes the maintenance man came and hoovered all the water up from the carpet cheerfully and efficiently.The food is absolutely amazing in the very pleasant dining room, good choices, perfectly cooked. Definitely will return to this hotel .

This summer I walked the entire South West Coast Path to raise money for FORCE and Over and Above, two South West charities that support cancer patients and their families. Porth Veor Manor Hotel very kindly agreed to be my Accommodation Partner and Gold Sponsor in Porth. On arrival I was struck by the attractive stone building, spacious interior, sizeable grounds and nice views towards the beach. I stayed in one of the biggest bedrooms I saw during the whole trip, which was a bonus with all the kit I had. The double bed was large and comfortable, the en-suite bathroom was impressive and there were good views towards the beach and countryside. The receptionists were very friendly and helpful, assisting me with their local knowledge. When walking for miles and days on end, it's always a treat to have your clothes washed. The hotel provides a washing service for only £10, and my clothes were back with me within 90 minutes. There was plenty of choice for breakfast and I had a very nice, well-presented full Cornish which set me up nicely for the walk to Perranporth. Thanks once again, Jamie and all the staff, for your amazing support of my charity expedition. If you search for “Jim's Journey” on Facebook, you can see lots of photos of the views around Porth, Newquay and elsewhere along the South West Coast Path.

"AVOID AT ALL COSTS - THE WORST HOTEL WE HAVE EVER STAYED IN!!"

1
28/08/2016

My partner and I booked a double room for 6 nights at this 'hotel' if you can even call it that. We were given room 17, which was meant to be a double room.... When we entered the room the bed definitely wasn't double and there was barely enough room to swing a cat in there. Every nights sleep was uncomfortable as it got so hot in there and the bed was so small and uncomfortable that it partly ruined our holiday. When I found out that other 'double rooms' in the hotel (Room 21 for example), where guests were paying the same rate as I was, I was intrigued to have a look. To my amazement other rooms where guests were paying the same price as I were almost double in size, including the double beds!!! When i spoke to STEVE the 'manager' about this, he was completely unsympathetic, non-understanding and did nothing but talk over me. Steve, a word of wisdom for you buddy and the first rule of business - Look after your customers before someone else does. The other staff members were equally cold and we simply didn't get any service at all in the hotel. I think a change of management may be needed. One night when we asked to change rooms as I simply wasn't getting any sleep they said they had Room 21 available for one night only, but that we would need to pay again to change rooms for one night even though we had already payed for the entire stay....UNBELIEVABLE. Other than the room dissatisfaction and poor service, the breakfast was also sub par. The pool outside was nice and warm, but tiny and full of screaming kids all day and into the evening, which we could hear nice and clearly from our shoebox room, number 17. The only saving grace about this hotel is the location as it was near the main town, St Ives, Padstow & other beaches (the one near the hotel isn't worth seeing). Overall, very disappointing & the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Please avoid at all costs! I am now going to complain directly to Best Western. If it's anything like the customer service from the hotel, wish me a lot of luck!

Jamie R, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your review which is based on the email feedback we received on 31.08.16 and replied to directly. For consistency we are happy to share this reply below: Thank you for your email, I am disappointed that you didn't make yourself known to me on check out on Saturday as you did take a note of my name badge. We always strive to assist with issues wherever possible during a stay as it's far better than working retrospectively. I would like to clarify a few of the points you raise which I hope will better explain our position. Prior to arrival, you requested by email on 9 August a room on the first floor, with a bath. You had booked via booking.com and not direct with ourselves or via Best Western central reservations. Fortunately we were able to move you from your room that had been allocated on the second floor to a first floor room (17). Sadly not all of our rooms benefit from a bath & shower and therefore on this occasion we could not meet all requests made (specifically your request for a bath). We have 3 room grades at the hotel; Standard Twin or Double (this is the grade of room you had selected when making your booking via booking.com) Sea View Twin or Double Superior Sea View Double rooms To assist with room make up flexibility and depending on the slight variations our 19th century manor house property provides, some rooms use what we call ‘zip & link beds'. This allows the room to either be made up as a twin room or the beds linked together to make a super-king size bed. Your booking was made for a standard double/twin via booking.com and given your request by email for a first floor room, the most appropriate room available was room 17. As you will appreciate, it is not practical to put zip & link beds in all bedrooms due to the aforementioned variations in room size and given the time of year you had booked your holiday, our ability to move rooms is extremely limited. I would like to clarify that the double bed in the room you booked is a standard size 4' 6" bed and not one of a reduced size. As you point out, Porth and Newquay are very popular with families and given that we are still enjoying the school summer holidays, we have a higher proportion of families with young children staying with us and making use of our facilities including our heated outdoor pool which is open from 8am until 7pm each day. I was also made aware that on one evening you requested to leave your luggage in room 17 but to sleep in an alternative room. You are correct in your assertion that you had booked to stay for 6 nights, however, this was for one room and not for the use of 2 rooms on one night. With the greatest respect, my team strive to provide excellent service and as mentioned before we will do what we can to accommodate requests as we demonstrated in our emails to you on and around the 9th of August when you made your original additional room requests. With regards to our breakfast, we offer a wide range of both cooked and continental options with daily cooked specials. Our breakfast includes lots of locally produced and sourced products and has received the Visit England Breakfast award, an award earned by c30% of hotels assessed by Visit England last time I checked. I'm afraid I will have to agree to disagree that our breakfast is ‘sub-par' as you describe. I would also like to add that we have just had our annual Quality Assurance review from the team at Best Western and are delighted to report that we have achieved an improved score on our previous year putting us in the 'Good Standing 1' category for hotels in our brand in Great Britain. It is also a shame that you felt Porth Beach didn't meet your expectations. Obviously, we are not responsible for the beach but it is a ‘Blue Flag' beach which is a coveted seaside award for any coastal location. It's also highly popular with families as it is the only beach in Newquay that prioritises swimming and bodyboarding over surfing due to the width of the beach and relatively calm waters at high tide. This makes it fantastic for other water sports such as Kayaking or Stand Up Paddle boarding. That being said, we are blessed in Cornwall with some truly spectacular beaches and each one has it's own charm and perks be it the long sandy beaches of Hayle and St Ives Bay or the quality surf and swell enjoyed over on Fistral and Watergate Bay. With all that being said, I would welcome the opportunity to invite you and your partner back to the hotel at a future time.

24/08/2016

Great location, just a short walk down the hill to Porth Beach. On-site parking. Great sea and beach views if you get a good room. My only reason for not giving 4 stars was that my room was a bit on the smaller side (maybe because it was a single occupancy double). Oh, ignore where the sat-nav takes you on the postcode, if coming from the Newquay end, continue down the road, past where it tells you to turn right into a residental cul-de-sac, they are at the bottom of the first part of the hill on the left hand side, where the road bends to the right.

It's closer to the main road that the beach It's as close to the bins as the main road The bins are emptied early The laminate floor resembles a choppy sea The bed is impossibly uncomfortable If the bed doesn't keep you awake the noise outside will as there is inadequate insulation The shower room (and especially the shower cubicle) is impossibly small Neither the TV nor the Freesat remotes work Oh ... Did I mention that it was clearly built as a garage ...

We had room 12 on second floor no lift so it's a struggle fit you are older. The bathroom really small the room was small. Had kettle ,hairdryer shampoo etc. We could just about See the sea. Gardens were nice and reasonable outside pool. Breakfast was ok. Dinner prices very expensive. The staff seemed to do everything from reception,bar and serve food there was not enough staff. It took us 3times to get extra pillow. Considering the staff were very nice. Parking was a nightmare.

We stayed for 3 nights in room 24 which had a sea and garden view. A very comfortable and homely room with plenty of light. Reception were very welcoming and all the staff were friendly throughout our stay. This hotel is in a superb location and only a ten minute walk from Porth beach which is lovely. Plenty of headland walks from this beach. You are also able to walk right to the old Newquay harbour in the opposite direction on a designated path. Quite an easy level walk especially for those less abled. The full English breakfasts were superb as were the normal breakfast offerings cereals, fruit etc. Nice to have a toaster which toasted bread quickly not like many hotels today. Had two evening meals in the Beaucliffs restaurant which we enjoyed. Mostly positives but a couple of negatives as well. Bedroom window blind not working neither was the air con. Also no Pinot Grigio wine available in the bar for pre dinner drinks throughout our stay. The acid test of course is would we return and the answer is definitely yes. Best Western is a good hotel chain which we use often as club card holders.

Stayed here recently for 5 nights in the 3 bed 3 bath villa. Spacious, clean and comfortable with some nice private outdoor areas. Lovely little pool and short walk to a wonderful beach. A couple of small irritations; on arrival, late due to bad weather and traffic, our keys were not in the security box as instructed and I spent 10 mins in the rain trying to get a signal to phone someone to open up. Also, someone had clearly had a cup of tea and biscuits recently in the accommodation as all the bins had been emptied but biscuit wrappers, tea bags and little milk cartons were in the bin and looked fresh! The fridge never really worked properly all the time we were there. Despite this we all enjoyed our stay and would come again.

A well located spot from both airport and centre of town. Everything is easily walkable. Stayed in one of the cottages and they are very good albeit, somewhat dated. Clean rooms and incredibly spacious. Excellent sized lounge and bedrooms (one en suite) and good amenities throughout. Pool is small but heated and with rooms all round, it's a sociable spot. Only had breakfast and it was very reasonable. Parking spot also allocated to each cottage.

"Great stay! "

Stayed for one week self catering with a Groupon offer which was almost half the cost of the normal price so a great saving. We were a family staying in one of the villas by the heated pool. The villa is spacious with 2 bathrooms and very clean with everything you need. The beach is located just a 5 minute walk away. We did not eat out in the hotel for breakfast or Dinner so cannot comment on the quality of this. You do get a discount as a guest in the villas, however we still found these were a little on the expensive side, especially with a young family to feed. Full English breakfast is £12.00 before the discount is applied. Located centrally in Cornwall it is easy to reach many places within 30-40 minutes by car. We would definitely stay again in the future.

30/06/2016

This hotel stands on a hill overlooking the bay and has wonderful views. The room was large and comfortable, and the only thing I found disappointing was the breakfast. Although it was not a serve yourself buffet I suspect it was all pre cooked and waiting in the kitchen as the fried eggs were not that great. It would also have been helpful if the waitress had told us there was a do it yourself toast machine round the corner as we hadn't spotted it and waited ages for toast to arrive! Nevertheless the location tips the balance and I would happily stay there again.

Porth Manor hotel, overlooks the beautiful Porth bay. It oozes holiday perfection. No lift so that could be a problem, but this is a lovely hotel. A ten minute walk takes you the bay. Uphill going back but the walk is well worth it. The walk can be extended to make it to Porth Island. The bus route passes the hotel on its way to Padstein (actually Padstow0 where Rick Stein has his restaurants. Padsstow is a must see place.

We spent one night here. The hotel has a nice position and is clean and welcoming. We had intended to eat dinner but there was some confusion over booking in.

Facilities were excellent even though I had no time to use them. Will definitely come again for business trips.

09/05/2016

Having stayed in the villas last year and being a Best Western member, we decided to stay in the main hotel this time, just for the one night. We arrived early and was allowed to leave our car in the car park. The receptionist agreed as members, we could be in line for a free upgrade. Quite the reverse. When we booked in later, we were allowcated a small room on the second floor. The room was functional, well decorated but very small and not what we are used to with Best Western. We suggest you avoid a second floor room. Not good, unfortunately!

Jamie R, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback. With regards to room size, all our rooms are different as we are a 19th century manor house. The room you had been upgraded to was one with a sea-view which your original booking did not benefit from. We are sorry that on this occasion the size of the room was smaller than expected, we hope when you book with us next time we can allocate you a larger room for your stay.

"Food & car parking"

01/05/2016

Food was good but not much of a choice , we felt that some selections of snacks such as sandwiches or panni's would be a nice addition as not all people would like a heavy meal at the end of the day . Parking was also a issues as we came back from a day out & struggled to find a parking space , this would be a major issue when the hotel is fully booked

Jamie R, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. With regards to the food offering in the evenings, we will consider your comments when the next menu change is introduced, we do feel that the 2 menu's we offer do provide a balance of good value and a wide variety of meals as well as the bar menu that is available during the day which also has a lighter feel to the meals offered. With regards to parking, we do our best to ensure that villas/apartments are allocated their own space leaving additional parking for hotel guests, if you ever need assistance though, a member of our team will be happen to show you over flow parking solutions if these are required.

This was our second visit here and again, we were not disappointed. The hotel is on the outskirts of Newquay at Porth, above the beach. It is small, but has self-catering as well as rooms with breakfast and a very good restaurant. We ate there on our first evening and the food is excellent. Breakfast has everything you could want - and more! Outside is a small swimming pool and plenty of space for enjoying the sun, if you're lucky enough to get any! My advice is to go and enjoy this lovely little hotel - and it's very reasonable.

Thank you for your feedback, we use all feedback to continually improve our service. It is disappointing you felt our breakfast wasn't to your taste, we receive a lot of positive comments regarding the quality and variety available at breakfast. Ordering is never intended to be rushed but our food is cooked to order to ensure it is at its freshest when it reaches your table.

We stayed here for one night with a coach party of about 20 people. The hotel was clean and comfortable, in a lovely position overlooking the beach and the staff were very helpful indeed. We had an early morning start and the staff went out of their way to provide us with a substantial take-away breakfast and to make sure our needs were catered for. A well managed, very friendly hotel.

Have not stayed much in England recently as we normally go abroad. We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel which we booked on our Tesco's vouchers for 3 nights. We had a standard room (forgot this means 4 foot 6 bed!) as a Superior was not available for all the nights of our stay. The hotel is very clean and recently decorated with smart tiles. It is not designer styling but clean and comfortable. Airy bar and restaurant area. Breakfast was excellent with polite and friendly staff. The position is quiet and has good views at the front but even at the back the views are over Porth with an open aspect. There are also apartments and a small outdoor swimming pool which is heated from April and people were using it. A great choice for touring Cornwall as it is quiet to return to at night.

"Rather Tired Hotel"

15/04/2016

Although the room was clean and tidy the common areas of the hotel were rather tired. Quite a few problems with the room fitments (shower head fell off, leaky windows etc) and very poor beds. Very limited parking. Pool was okay but to ally enclosed by apartments. Overall would not recommend.

"Groupon Break"

12/04/2016

Just returned from a short break courtesy of Groupon. This is a great hotel, fantastic location run by polite and friendly staff. The room (21) was clean and tidy and very comfortable. We had dinner each evening in the onsite restaurant and the food was of a very high standard. Steak one night, which was cooked as requested and absolutely sublime. Also has Seabass which was again excellent. Breakfast on each morning was ample, the cooked option was plentiful. No complaints whatsoever on either count. The hotel was quiet and not many staff working but they looked after us and there were no issues with being served etc. Would definetly stay here again. We had a look at the apartments and they looked,very modern and comfortable.

"Warm Welcome At Porth Veor Manor"

11/04/2016

Just returned from a short stay at the Veor Manor and would like to start by saying that this is a hidden gem in on the outskirts of Newquay, located a short walk from a small beach and within walking distance of the town centre, the hotel was fairly busy but was still quite and relaxing. The staff where all very polite and the hotel was clean and tidy throughout. The only slight issue we had was that the poached eggs at breakfast were overcooked but replaced when we pointed it out without a fuss.

"A Most Beautiful Place!"

An amazing and tranquil destination that left me in awe and hoping to visit again. I walked to the sea directly from the hotel, meandered around and was able to find light groceries very close by. I hope to return!

"Would not stay here again"

29/03/2016

Firstly poor standards of cleanliness and not only in a room (we staid in 23) but in general in all hotel. High level of dust throughout the room; beddings, glasses, kettle dirty. Bathroom walls and floor need well deep cleaning. Outside the room I could easily spot cobwebs on lamp shades and windows. We have booked upgraded room with sea view which originally costs over £100 per night. Unfortunately room is very small size same as bathroom; and yes, there is a see view but window is so tiny and I would rather call it garden view than see. Not impressed with breakfast either. Continental breakfast lack of choice and full English breakfast not as expected. Check out time at 10am. No guaranteed parking space for non villa residents. Being in a room can easily hear people walking in a corridor. You must back in a hotel by 11pm otherwise will be required to take night keys and pay deposit for it. Also, mobile reception is terrible for O2, Vodafone and Three users. We could make calls only with Vodafone as the other two networks had no service at all.

"Comfortable and welcoming"

27/03/2016

Stayed for one night and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. I was passing through Newquay and usually stay at a local Premier Inn. There was a good deal available at this hotel so I decided to see what it was like. I was pleased to stay in a friendly and well appointed place. The room was large, warm and quiet, ideal for an overnight stay. I didn't eat there but the menu, although not extensive, seemed fine.

"Great value, great location."

25/03/2016

Stayed in superior sea-view room. Impressed by room and facilities within. The hotel was ideally located for porth beach and access to the coastal path. Approx 20 mins walk to Newquay town centre. Breakfast was adequate, although ran short on pastries.

"Delightful hotel in lovely setting."

24/03/2016

We stayed here while vising family in Newquay. The hotel was warm and comfortably furnished with large fluffy white towels in a very modern luxurious en-suite shower room. The breakfast was tasty with locally sourced sausages bacon & hogs pudding. The only downside was the evening meals - I had the rack of lamb which should have had a "jus" but it came with a watery gravy instead - a shame the meat was tender and juicy but it just needed the jus. My husband had the stuffed chicken which didn't taste of much at all the best part was the chilli pearls.

"Disappointed"

21/03/2016

Just returned from a four night break and found a change since Best Western group has taken over. First time we have stayed in the hotel on a bead and breakfast basis, previously we stayed self catering in the apartments. Food was a little disappointing, very bland and a little over cooked, very unimaginative. One member of staff seemed totally disinterested. This hotel is in the most fantastic location I would return on a self catering basis.

Jamie R, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you found the food not to your taste. We prepare and cook all our food fresh on site to ensure it is as fresh as possible. We have also recently received a 5 star rating for our food hygiene and safety practices and receive regular positive feedback in relation to our food offerings. We do hope that if you return on a self catering basis your will sample our menus in the restaurant again.

"Disappointed stay"

3
20/03/2016

We have just returned from a four night stay at this hotel. The rooms are clean but a little dated and the mattress was a little lumpy (room 17). The breakfast was ok. Although would have been improved if scramble/poached eggs could have been served with toast. We had to make our own! The smoked salmon/scramble eggs again served also on its own, toast or a muffin would be nice and would look more appetizing.The smoked paddock I ordered was bland. I ordered tea which was quite weak. We were in the dining room each morning between 8:15 - 8:30 and on two mornings there was not enough Danish pastries to meet demand. The service was at times slow and one member of staff seemed disinterested and when serving our main courses did not remove our cereals dishes and empty fruit juice glasses. When we came in the hotel in the evening there was no one on reception around 8 o'clock and we had to go and find a member of staff for our room keys. On two occasions we have stayed in the apartments attached to the hotel and these were excellent. We were disappointed with our stay in the hotel.

"Mothers Day"

2
20/03/2016

When my Nan booked us in to Porth Veor Manor for mothers day I was really excited as it sounded like super posh food and with a beautiful view of Porth beach in Newquay. When we arrived I found it was as beautiful as I imagined but when I saw the sign Best Western, I immediately remembered being told Best Western's aren't very good. Yet when we walked in, the manor was beautiful, very intricate and old English, quite stunning. The view was lovely. We did have a short 20minute wait but it was well spent escaping in the view, catching up with distant family, and of course ordering in celebratory drinks at the bar. We then were shown to our table which also had a lovely view. I faced out to Porth, purposely to see the sea. We were given a choice off a printed set menu, we skipped starter, but I ordered the roast chicken for my main. There was only one price option for "main" printed and that was for £12 but "£6 child" was hand written scruffy at the bottom of the page like they'd made it up for forgetting the children.. so anyway my younger sisters and my vegetarian Aunty all ordered the children's, the rest including myself ordered the standard main because we were hungry. We then had a quite a long wait, of about 30-40minutes for our food to arrive. And when mine was placed in front of me, my first thought was pass me the veg bowls, and extras. The plate looked huge compared to the amount of food on it. When I realised there were no side dishes I thought, I could eat 2 of that! I had 1 reasonable size chicken breast sliced and resting. Crushed potatoes in a small pile (equal to the amount of a average size yoghurt pot turned upside down) and a spoonful of carrot and suede. Gravy drizzled all fancy and that was it!! Then my sisters plate came out, the plate was smaller but the portion size was the exact same... So not only did it not fill me up for £12. If I'd have ordered a child's for only £6 I'd have gotten the same size portion of food, just on a smaller plate! I was so angry. I actually enjoyed the food, but maybe because by the time, like an hour after we arrived, we got the food I was so hungry, anything would have done.. There was another table complaining about their food, for having to much uncooked & fatty areas on their pork and that it hadn't been cooked enough. The manager came out and accused them of drinking to much alcohol with their meal and spoiling the flavour. How rude. When paying it took 2 members of staff, with no people skills.. trying to figure out the till system, going back and forth the outside foyer. And then messing up the final bill we owed by adding an extra £12 meal. I will never revisit or recommend Porth Veor. Hope this has helped. I would like to leave it on a positive, for a couple of the waitresses who were very lovely to my son and were friendly and attentive to the table also, thank you.

"mothers day luncheon"

07/03/2016

Different familes made our party up for mothers day luncheon very nice place greetings were good, but when it came to the lunch the standard of food was appalling different starters some were bland the soup so much garlic in it. the main course was a disaster rock hard veg no accompaning gravies very bland tastes when we spoke to the manager he took aboard our comments then said we had been drinking is that not usual to have a drink with your lunch then said nobody else had complained we found out they had, we,ve never had those comments said to us before, he later decided to allow us 20% off the bill, the manager and kitchen ruined our luncheon.

Jamie R, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback. We take all feedback on board and look to use it to improve standards moving forwards. We would like to clarify that with regards to a highly successful Mother's Day Lunch sadly your group was the only party who raised any concerns regarding the standard of the food and one member of your party actually complimented the food and service and stated they will be returning which was another piece of welcome feedback. Secondly, the point raised regarding pairing wine/drinks with food was one made purely to advise that certain foods can change the taste of wine and certain wines can influence the flavour of food by either enhancing or cancelling out flavours depending on the ingredients. We fully appreciate that some of the party were only enjoying iced water. On the day, given only 4 of your party made specific complaints it was felt that a 20% discount was a very fair gesture to your entire group, in addition to this we also did not charge for one starter or main after a member of you party stated they were not prepared to pay and this was pointed out when the bill was presented to the group. All that being said, we appreciate the time taken to leave your feedback and we will use it moving forward.

"Faultless"

28/02/2016

We stayed in a 2 bedroomed apartment in this small holiday complex on the grounds of the Manor which had its own restaurant/bar. On our arrival we were met by very friendly lady who guided us to our superb home for the next 4 nights. Everything we could need was there, all the comforts of home and more. Luckily we had 3 sunny days in a dull February and were able to get out and about to Port Isaac and other coastal villages. Unfortunately I was taken ill during our stay and the reception were very helpful in organising medical consultation. Only sorry that we didn't get to visit the restaurant which had been our plan. We will certainly hope to return and/or visit another of their holiday venues doted around the south west. We did in fact stay in Watergate Bay at the Beachcomers last year and that was wonderful too, despite the weather on that occasion.

"September 2015, Wedding"

26/01/2016

My wife and I had our wedding reception at this venue last year. We had previously booked with another hotel but the service we received was appalling. We decided to change venue and we are very glad we did! - safe to say it wasn't the same experience here! Jamie and his team were excellent, Jamie was prompt with his replies and was always there for us if we had any questions or queries leading up to the big day. On the day itself the venue was decorated perfectly (once again Jamie helped with his ideas). His staff were well presented, very polite and accommodating to all our guests. The food was delightful and once again, the staff were always around to assist during the dinner itself. I could go on for hours praising this venue and staff, its safe to say they really did make our day special. I wouldn't hesitate for one second to recommend this hotel for any wedding reception. Once again, Thank you for making our day so perfect!

"Perfect location for the beach."

14/01/2016

We booked last minute for a one night break over New Year and were pleasantly surprised by the lovely hotel, set just back from the beach at Porth, within walking distance of the coast path and local amenities. The room was spacious and comfortable and very light and airy, with a view of the beach from one of the windows. Breakfast was excellent served in the lovely conservatory which wraps itself around the hotel. As it was the depths of winter there wasn't anything going on outside but there is a small pool that is useable in the summer months and open grassed areas for sitting out when the weather is better.

Lovely fully equipped apartment which was ideally placed for visiting family nearby. The property was very clean and warm on our arrival. We had everything required and would recommend this apartment.

"Could have been better."

16/12/2015

Upon arrival reception was closed and no one answered the doorbell. I had to ring for someone to drive to the hotel and check me in. The rooms require updating but are clean. During my stay I required changing rooms as my room smelt of sewage when I returned in the evening. The service in the restaurant was extremely slow and it was not busy.

Jamie R, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback. We have a rolling programme of maintenance for all our rooms and more work will be undertaken over the winter, however, we are proud of the standard of decor and facilities provided. It is unfortunate that you had to change rooms but we hope that by providing assistance and the issue was rectified before you checked out as we work hard to ensure issues of this nature are attended to promptly. All our food is cooked to order and locally sourced where possible, because of this fact and that none of our food is frozen and then served from a microwave our food service is timed to ensure food is served as fresh as possible.

01/12/2015

The staff were polite, the food quite good, the hotel neat, tidy and well decorated. Evening meals seemed a little overpriced but were quite nice. Ate in the conservatory side of the dining room which was a little on the cold side. Bed a little hard but this will suit some guests. Strange not to find a bar of soap in the en-suite.

Jamie R, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback, we provide a range of complimentary toiletries in all our rooms and also provide supplementary toiletries available at reception should you run out during your stay. Our team are happy to help out should something like this arise but it is difficult to help retrospectively, we do hope to welcome you back in the future. In the restaurant we are looking forward to some menu re-design and updating to our food offering for 2016 so a great chance to come back and see what has changed.

We had a really nice meal and were very impressed with the style and quality of dishes served, with fantastic views. Staff were very good and attentive. We will return again as recommend to anyone in the area, restaurant is open to all and has a dress code.

"Porth Beach House - lovely apartment"

5
18/11/2015

My husband and I spent a long weekend in one of the apartments at the Porth Beach House. It was a lovely apartment on the top floor overlooking the beach. All the rooms were attractively finished and the kitchen was well equipped with just about anything you may need, including a washing machine and dishwasher, which would be useful for longer stays. Check in was at the main hotel, just a short way up the road and staff there were always friendly and helpful. Although there was a wireless modem in the apartment it didn't appear to be connected up. This would have been helpful as the area is a mobile blackspot with no signal and this would be a big plus to help people plan their break. Hopefully it is something that can be fixed and may be available in future. But it didn't detract from the enjoyment of our break and we would love to stay here again.

"Loved our stay"

17/11/2015

We went to Porth Veor Manor for three day break in the summer and we absolutely loved it. It's a nice hotel situated just by the bay in the lovely part of Newquay. Nearby are good places to eat out and hotel restaurant itself was really good. We loved our breakfast and dinner that we had one one was nice too. It was so good that we were thinking of dining in on the other night too, but decided that we can't not venture out lol The staff were really friendly and would go an extra mile to make you happy. The hotel has its own outdoor heated pool which is great for English weather as the water doesn't heat up quick enough even if it's nice weather. It kind of made me feel like we were somewhere in sunny Spain. We loved our stay so much that we wanted to book additional nights, but unfortunately the hotel was fully booked. And there's no surprises there! Would definitely recommend the place!

Booked a last minute break here and we were thoroughly surprised by the quality and location of the apartment. Fully equipped with everything we needed it really added to being in Cornwall again. Check in was at the hotel about 200yds away...and I must back up another reviewer about not being advised about the £100 deposit. The only confirmation received was through booking.com and special requests made through the booking.com website were not replied to. (Could be booking.com fault). That said check in was excellent, the lady was polite and completed check in with ease. Each apartment has allocated parking with is invaluable in Cornwall. I would highly recommend this accommodation and also would highly recommend visiting Cornwall out of season...It is quieter, more relaxed and the views are even more spectacular. Will definitely look to book here again next year. Thank you.

Fantastic accommodation, very clean and only a road to cross to the beach. The kitchen has washing machine/dryer, dishwasher and well stocked cupboards of crockery and utensils. Also provided for your initial arrival with coffee sachets, tea, biscuits and milk. The only down side was the £100 deposit required when we arrived, that we were not informed of when booking, otherwise it would have been a 5 star review.

Jamie R, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Porth Veor Manor Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback and we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay at the Beach House apartments. To clarify the £100.00 security deposit, we do make sure that guests are aware of this before arrival at our properties as it is included in our email confirmations sent out when the final balance is paid before you reach us. It is fully refundable, usually within 7 working days of departure, provided the apartment is left in an acceptable condition as explained in full in our booking terms and conditions. That being said, we are really pleased you had an enjoyable stay and we hope to see you again in the future.

Just stayed at Porth Veor Manor Hotel, nice spot overlooking the bay at Porth near Newquay. Very pleasant hotel with great staff, all very friendly and welcoming offering great service they are a credit to the hotel. Has a good choice of food which is well cooked and presented, some of the best we have had. Once again enjoyed our stay at a Best Western Hotel. We hope to visit again in the future.

We stayed in one of the appartments in the grounds and next to the hotel. Excellent standard of furnishings and cleanliness. As we had an elderley relative with us, we stayed in one of the appartments which were all on one floor with the allocated car parking space right outside the door. Very convenient. We didn't eat in the restaurant or swim in the outdoor heated pool but other guests were impressed with both. Try it out!

"Would definitely come back."

28/09/2015

Please read if you are planning to stay here. My wife and I recently stayed at the Porth veor manor and had a really nice stay, although I did try to cancel. I foolishly booked through a popular on line Web site specialising in late rooms, and as I later learned inflated prices (ring the hotel and obtain a price first). The reason I tried to cancel was due to the pictures on the Web site, I was worried I'd booked us into a saga break with bedding and decor to match. On checking into the hotel (2 hours early) I was given our room keys. The room had a beautiful view over Porth beach and a comfortable bed with crisp white sheets. The only negative point for the room was that the curtains hung away from the wall and let the light in. The breakfast was really good but I was a little disappointed that you are limited to 6 items for the English breakfast ( I don't do continental), but saying that I didn't leave the table hungry. I know you're supposed to do your homework but If I'd seen some of the pictures and read some of the reviews beforehand I wouldn't have booked, but we had a great stay, we were greeted by pleasant and helpful staff and we both said we would definitely stay again. Just try and get the Web site pictures updated, and It would be great if checkout was a little later.

"Superb hotel in every way!"

25/09/2015

I stayed at the Porth Veor Manor Hotel as part of a golfing tour from South Wales and have to say that I was totally impressed in every way..... not often I can say that! The staff were so friendly from registration to departure - the decor of the hotel excellent (air conditioning in the bedroom and proper opening double glazed windows). And while on about the bedroom, it was spacious, the bed comfortable and the shower powerful and hot (hugely important to me!!). We dined in on all three evenings of our stay - eating before 7pm gave us the £14 for two courses menu - the choice for me was pretty easy - moules marinière followed by fish and chips (alright, so one evening I had the chicken and couscous). Absolutely beautiful. Now breakfast set us up for the day - a tradionaltional English with all the trimmings. Finally, the bar (an important part of any golf tour!). Well stocked and at reasonable prices. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. A truly great experience.

"Two night Winter stay"

24/09/2015

This was our first visit to Porth Veor Manor Hotel, we selected this location for what we hoped was a nice quiet location, and we were not disappointed. Set in an elevated position overlooking Porth Beach, we opted for a room with a "sea view" which even in February was a delight to look out upon. The room was a good size, well appointed, bright and warm, and a very comfortable bed. A good sized bathroom, with shower over bath, very clean. There is free Wi-Fi available which can be a little hit and miss depending where you are in the building (although there was a little confusion over how to access it initially, along with not being able to use the T.V, but a visit from a very helpful member of staff soon rectified both issues, and to be fair it was early in the season so I suspect it was just a couple of 'wrinkles' to be 'ironed out') The restaurant is very pleasant, part of which is in a conservatory which wraps around one side of the hotel and offers lovely views, which we admired whilst enjoying excellent quality breakfast each morning of our stay. This was a rather hectic stay for us (visiting relatives and trying to get some sightseeing in) but we decided we would definately return at some point in the Summer. All the members of staff were attentive and very pleasant, all in all a very enjoyable experience.
