Beresford Hotel Newquay

Check in was quick and efficient. Room 5, sea view first floor was very nice with all facilities you would expect only from a higher rated hotel. The whole hotel had a good standard of decoration and kept very clean. Very nice lounges with comfortable seating and a nice dining room. The evening entertainment was of a good standard but I found the seating to be uncomfortable after a while. The food was of a very high standard with an excellent menu. All staff were the best I have come across.

Great Value

After spending 5 days at the hotel we did not expect to find this kind of service for the price we paid. The room were very clean, bathroom good standard. Meals excellent and well presented service very good all the staff friendly and helpful. We had a lovely time the idea for 4 drinks free every night is very good value. Thanks for such a wonderful break.

Room TLC

Just enjoyed a break at Beresford. Couldn't fault staff, food, entertainment, only problem with this hotel is the rooms. We stayed in 2 rooms during our stay, the first did not have a shower (I cannot use the bath due to 2 hip replacements) we were moved after 2 nights to a room with a shower. Both rooms were in bad need of TLC and we felt they were not up to Shearing standards but otherwise we had a very good time as we always do with your company.

Unbeatable Value

Long weekend break with Shearings. Decor "lived in" in places but more than made up for by the friendly staff. Hotel was very clean and everything seemed to work, food was cooked well with good choice on the menu, service at mealtimes was excellent. Not big drinkers but the free vouchers for alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks very much appreciated. As the heading says unbeatable value in our opinion.

Well Done

We stayed here for a golden wedding anniversary and came away very happy, I am not going to say that everything was perfect but they are on the right track, the staff are all friendly and helpful, the small down side was that on two occasions a guest was smoking in the room and it stunk in the corridor, I did mention this to reception but got a negative response, as a non smoker I do not want to smell other peoples smoke, and can they put longer mirrors in the bathroom we are not all over 5 ft.

Decor away from the public areas is dated, and the entertainment (with the exception of Caroline) would never feature in Las Vegas BUT...... .................. if you're looking for a spotlessly clean, warm, welcoming hotel with great staff and good food, you'll search hard to beat the Bay Beresford. Opt for the all inclusive package and there's a free bar in the evenings too. (19.30 - 22.30 hours). Thanks to everyone for a great weekend..... See you again SOON.
