People gather around the
bar, as if for warmth. Meanwhile 20+ tables lie bare in what is effectively a
relatively large hotel function room.
It is ok as a hotel bar, particularly as they serve Tribute, but not really
worth the effort if you are not staying at the hotel.
Groupon voucher for £119 two nights including one spa treatment. SOLD!
We paid an extra £20 per night for a sea view and this is a must because the alternative view is out over a busy street with a club, a sports bar and many shops and restaurants. And anyway why wouldn't you want to look out over the beach and the beautiful sea and surfers of Cornwall?
anyway the room was basic, quite small but for the money we paid it was good value. We saw the price list in reception and they were asking £125 per night for the room which there is no way in hell I would ever pay that for the standard of the room. The shower was super powerful and hot which is sometimes lacking in hotels. The staff were all very young - and I mean during our stay we didn't see a member of staff over 25. It wasn't a problem, just noticeable. The bar had a great cocktails menu but when we went to order there wasn't a trained member of staff able to make them. Great.
The spa - Ohh La La was more of a beauty room than a spa, but the girl in charge was very nice. Myself and Adam Y both had hot stone massages (one included in the price one not) and both enjoyed them very much so. A big bonus to the hotel to have this 'spa' here. The pool was nice, the hot tub wasn't so hot and the steam room was despicable.
Breakfast was included too so we took advantage of the cereal and toast (now why is it hotels never look into buying decent quality bread for toast? Sliced cheap bread is awful) as the hot food wasn't up to much good.
The hotel was quiet for Easter week but the town wasn't. Newquay was busy and the beach had people learning to surf and families having picnics etc. Having walked all the way round the centre it seems like Hotel Victoria is the oldest hotel (and possible the nicest) in Newquay today, but I wouldn't stay here again.
