On our way out of the Eden Project we visited the Core. This is home to exhibitions, school programs and the 75 ton Seed sculpture. We also watched the 20 minute film about the creation and building of the Eden ...
A long drive today to almost Lands End. . I had been determined to visit St Michael's Mount at Marazion Cornwall and although it was nearly four hours through sun, clouds, torrential rain on the top of Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor, it has been worth it.
What a gorgeous little town with steep narrow roads. It was a ...
... not to be messed with. Going quite well until I reached Lostwithiel and asked an extremely ancient local for directions..Through his thick Cornish accent I deciphered only "that way" as he pointed with gnarled finger. Two hours later of walking in the lanes I emerged back the main road 500 yards from where was. Thankfully for him the old sod was nowhere to be seen! Going forth I then found a cycle path leading into Liskeard ...
... from Falmouth had seen me in Plymouth and I got a ride all the way to Truro. Then I took the bus to Plymouth :) also got invited to an electro swing/ soul party. Sick! By the time I got the pennence mill farm I was we'll sue for some shut eye, so I pitched my tent and the lights were out well before sunset (which is around 930-10ish) ... And then the cold set in..

Absolutely hammering down and forecast to last for days. This where the test begins!! Walking along wearing a poncho.. Look a right idiot (I think because I can't see myself) Probably look mean, moody and magnificent. Today certainly tested my resolve although I honestly didn'tremotely feel like giving up. As I did not listen properly to directions given I took ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Victoria - Newquay
Situated in a great location in Newquay with easy walking distance to shops, cafes and the beach.
The room is large compared to many that we have stayed in and well appointed with period furniture to match the historical feel of the hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Victoria - Newquay
The downstairs area in the Victoria is ok and the breakfast was good, but the room was disgusting!!
Disgrace to cornwall visistors
this hotel was a big dissapointment to us
i wish that i had asked to see the room before i had paid as i never would have stayed there. The noise from the venues around was appalling i live in the middle of london so its not that i am not used to traffic ect. But yobs shouting and swearing outside my window did not impress me. Nor did the stains on the carpets and the tacky decor, I can honestly say it is the worst hotel i have ever stayed in.
My husband and i came to Hotel Victoria for our Honeymoon in 2004, the staff were fantastic, and the Honeymoon suite was to die for. We were made to feel very welcome, and also given 2 bottles of bubbly. We are coming back for our 1st anniversary, and would highly recommend the hotel.
I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights hoping for a relaxing stay in this so called "luxury" hotel. The first thing to point out is that the photo on the website is extremely misleading. The hotel appears to be set in its own grounds on the cliff top when in fact it is rammed on to Newquay's main street amongst the seedy bars and flashing tacky shop lights. My heart sank through the floor when I arrived. Things didn't get much better. My shower was taped to the wall and there was a big hole in the bed spread. Two of the reasons I chose this hotel were 1) the lift that descends from the hotel lobby directly on to the beach and 2) the swimming pool and spa area. The lift wasn't working due to a rock fall and the pool area was dingy and in need of a re-fit.
Having travelled quite extensively I have to say that this is one of the worst hotels. Being single I was subjected to the usual poor standard of room, dirty linen, substandard furnishings. Food was adequate, service with a frown. As someone who grew up in cornwall, I am disappointed that Newquay has developed from an exclusive, elegant town into a yob ridden den of iniquity.
Just enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Hotel Victoria in Newquay, splendid facilities, all employees went out of their way to help us. Would highly recommend to anyone. Great central location and easy for beach.
without a shadow of a doubt this is the worst hotel i have stayed in anywhere in the world!!! it's dated, looks like it hasen't seen a lick of paint for decades and seems to be stuck in a 1950's timewarp. as for the excuse for a restaurant words almost fail me! i thought such a combination of rude and arrogant staff allied with appalling food could not be improved upon. this place is truely a disgrace and would not be out of place in an episode of fawlty towers! i could go on for ever with an endless list of problems but i feel this institution has taken up enough of my time.
Hotel Victoria is AB FAB!
I stayed in the hotel for one month in the summer. I couldn't have asked for a nicer place to be. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the room had a sunken tub and the beach was right behind the hotel. Also they have a delicious spongecake desert :) The only problem is f you are not a big club or partying person. BEWARE...the noise from people leaving te clubs a pubs is no joke. This is only in the summer months when it's a big tourist area. If you go have fun. :) There is an aquarium and zoo nearby for the kiddies.
Have been staying at The Victoria (The "Vic" as called by locals) since 1985. The hotel has been renovated through the years, and gets better and better in all aspects of service through time.
