Overlooking Fistral Beach, this stylish Victorian hotel features a Five Bubble rated spa, surf school, approach golf course and a wonderful sea-view terrace. Awarded a 5-stay AA rating, the Headland Hotel is a 10-minute walk from Newquay centre.

The impressive leisure facilities include a brand new Aqua Club which includes 6 outdoor and indoor pools (open all year round). The spa includes a Cornish salt steam room, a Swedish sauna, a hot tub, and experience showers. Treatments by Elemis, Thalgo and OPI can be booked in the state-of-the-art ash wood panelled rooms or work out in the fully equipped Life Fitness gym.

There are three restaurants, and the hotel has been awarded an AA rosette. Guests can enjoy fresh local seafood in the formal candlelit restaurant or in the more relaxed Terrace which features an outdoor veranda with stunning beach views. Afternoon teas and Cornish breakfasts are available, and the bar offers cocktails and fine wines.

The spacious 5-star bedrooms at The Headland have free Wi-Fi access and satellite TV. All rooms feature a cosy seating area, work desk and a modern bathroom with waffle robes and free toiletries.

The hotel has a communal laundry room, where guests can access a washing machine and a tumble dryer, as well as ironing facilities.

Perched on a rugged headland, this hotel is just a 20-minute walk from Newquay Railway Station. Free on-site parking is available, and Newquay Golf Club is a 5-minute walk away. The surf school also offers coasteering, stand-up paddleboarding and private surfing lessons.

This is our guests' favourite part of Newquay, according to independent reviews.
