Location and Staff

Posted Jun 2, 2014
Pros: The staff and the location.
Cons: The hotel needs updating and repairs. We had cracks in the bathroom caulking and the overall look of the interior of the hotel is very dated.
Location: Absolutely beautiful trails to walk with cliffside views of the ocean. There are many shops, bars, restaurants and beaches in the area.
The hotel sits on top of a small cliff in a beautiful location just outside the commercial part of town. There are trails to walk around the area with spectacular views. The staff did a fantastic job of taking care of us. After a long day of travel they made us feel at home and we had a fabulous meal at the hotel restaurant. The hotel itself could use some updating and repairs, but staff and location more than make up for what the hotel lacks in it's physical state.

Little Tired but in good location

Posted Nov 4, 2013
Pros: Location
Cons: Better catering and better lighting on the steps from the car park to the hotel
Location: On the outskirts of Newquay
The hotel is a typical seaside resort type hotel in a good location but in need of a little tender care. The rooms were OK but they were difficult to access due to both steep stairs and then further short stairs in the corridors. This may access to my father's room rather precarious for an elderly man. I tried to eat dinner in the hotel but was told it was not possible because 'there is only one person in the kitchen and he can't cope with more people'. Strangely, Newquay is a difficult place to find dinner in the off season so beware.

Great hotel in quiet area near all attractions

Posted Sep 20, 2013
Pros: Position and easy car parking - close enough to Nequay but not too close
Great hotel in a quiet and beautiful area close to all attractions in Newquay and a good base for day trips to other areas in Cornwall.

Friendly Staff

Breakfast not included in price - not stated. Our room - many stairs to climb. Room - excellent - mattress wore out. Ventilation - one small window and fan not adequate. Fire exit other than room door - impossible by small window and locked exterior door. Excellent - staff, heated swimming pool, view from dining-room, size of bedroom.

Great Location

The views at breakfast were fabulous, and the food was lovely although the service was a little slow. The room was a great size it was just unfortunate that the carpet was so uncomfortable and covered in stains. Overall we had a good stay the hotel just needed a little lick of paint!

Bring your own sheets, and hot tub does not exist

Posted Sep 10, 2013
Pros: Location and warm pool
Cons: Customer service and cleanliness
Location: Walk along the cliffs or along the beach in the caves
Expedia & hotel's web site state that hotel has a hot tub. It does not. Reception state that it has been broken since December but that they removed it from the website... not true. We were considering booking a fourth night when we arrived, and we even mentioned this to the receptionist and asked if we could use an Expedia code to book it online. However they do not grant guests access to their PC and I can hardly say they followed up on the lead for an additional night's stay. As it turns out we were quite glad not to have committed another night. You can feel every spring in the bed -- not recommended for anyone who wants to sleep or relax. We requested our sheets be changed as we were on a three-night stay and they refused, saying they would only change them every 7 days. According to their reception this is the norm for all hotels in Cornwall...? I unrolled a throw from the closet. Sadly it contained someone else's hair so was not to be used. There was no conditioner or lotion. Other basic amenities were attached to the wall but only partially filled. Shower ceiling was peeling. They give you two packets of tea and two milk pouches. Doesn't go very far when there are two of you and neither of you drinks coffee! Not great after a cold, wet track from the town. Requested additional tea and they asked if we wanted it that night or whether it could wait. Manager not present & did not respond to a message left about the stay.

Ive stayed at the Glendorgal many times over the past 8 years but hadnt been back in a while. My room was very tired - marks on the wall, dirty, stained carpets, one of the windows didnt open..etc. Probably stayed in one of the worst rooms on this ocassion - overlooking the entrance to the hotel and situated right at the entrance to guest rooms so could hear everyone coming and going.Breakfast was pretty shocking - £12 for a continental breakfast and poached egg on toast - this was literally 2 pieces of toast with 2 barely poached eggs...the waiting staff were unfriendly and pretty much grunted at the guests...sadly not the place that I remember so will be looking to stay elsewhere next time!
