Cornwall hotel review: Why you’ll have a ball at the family friendly Esplanade hotel in Newquay

Love kids and browsing? Then you’ll have a ball at the family friendly Esplanade hotel in Newquay, says the Inspector

  • The Inspector pays £255 for dinner on a Saturday evening, mattress and breakfast
  • He dines at the hotel’s Cove restaurant, the place he finds costs are ‘affordable’ 
  • Remember, the Inspector pays his method… and tells it like it’s

Surfers are out in pressure on a bleak Sunday morning. The cloud is so low that it’s onerous to tell apart between sea and sky — however the swell is spectacular and clearly inviting for individuals who love nothing greater than catching a wave.

‘My husband’s on the market someplace,’ says our tanned and bubbly waitress at breakfast. She would match in wonderful in Malibu. But Newquay is much extra attention-grabbing than that moneyed Californian honey-pot — and proper now North Cornwall is on a roll, its fame rising as an all-year vacation vacation spot. Which explains why, at the finish of November, each room is taken at The Esplanade, overlooking the well-known Fistral Beach.

But don’t come right here as a couple searching for a quiet romantic break. The place is awash with kids having the time of their lives. There is even a gentle play space beside the open-plan bar and restaurant, plus desk soccer — and there’s a cinema and indoor pool, too.

You pay additional for rooms like ours with a sea view. We are paying £255 for dinner on a Saturday evening, mattress and breakfast. There’s a browsing theme to the room, with a lengthy picket headboard and paintings displaying boisterous seas spilling onto sandy seashores.

There should be a family room above ours, judging by the noise of little ones leaping from their bunk beds. No complaints from us — the web site makes clear the emphasis is on households. 

If you’re searching for adults-only, then The Esplanade’s sister hotel, the Fistral Beach, a couple of hundred yards alongside the coast, is the reply. But we observe with some reduction that there’s an adults-only bar referred to as Elements, which opens at 7pm. We get there at 7.03pm.

Dinner at Cove restaurant is one thing of a riot as kids rush about. ‘Eat some more of your chips and then you can . . .’ says one mom, however earlier than she will end her sentence the two sprogs in her cost have raced off.

We take pleasure in our pan-fried cod and pork stomach — and wines are served by the carafe in addition to by bottle or glass. The costs are affordable, with burgers beginning at £17 and pizzas £13.

The hotel homes the Quiksilver Surf School and friends get a particular charge. So should you have kids and in addition love browsing, you received’t go incorrect right here. In reality, you’ll have a ball.
