Top 10 English Seaside Hotels by Adrian Mourby

"Opened in 1900, the statuesque Headland Hotel rises up above the Atlantic Ocean the lair of some wealthy eccentric. Not surprisingly the Headland was “cast” as Hotel Excelsior in the film version of Roald Dahl’s The Witches (1990). Angelica Huston played the Grand High Witch – despite Roald Dahl’s objections - and Rowan Atkinson played the hotel manager. During a break in filming Atkinson left the bath taps running in his room and flooded the floor below. When hotel staff banged on his door the actor replied, “Go away, I’m asleep!”. Evidently the flood wrote off much of the production team’s electrical equipment.

The hotel had a similarly dramatic start in life. While it was being built in 1897, local fishermen attacked the foundations because they claimed the hotel was being built on common land where they had dried their nets for generations. This incident became known as the Newquay Riots. Fortunately when this imposing hotel was opened in 1900 it was able to attract the future Edward VII and Queen Alexandra to stay and earlier objections were set aside.

Situated on an actual headland west of Newquay the Headland stands four square on the South West Coastal Path which makes it great for walkers. It’s also just above Fistral Beach, which houses Rick Stein’s Fistral restaurant so it’s good for bathers and gourmands too."

Dog friendly accommodation this summer by Dinah Hatch

"For those with a dog with a maritime penchant, we suggest the simply lovely Headland Hotel and Spa in the lovely town of Newquay. Long morning walks or evening strolls along the beach or up on the headland make this serene spot perfect for canine lovers. And the hotel is more than geared up for you too. You will receive a welcome letter detailing everything you need to know about staying at the hotel with your dog, including information on the coastal paths. Expect lovely squidgy bedding, a chew stick, scoop bags and a bowl, for a small fee. You won’t want to leave this Cornish dog haven after one night listening to the waves as you and Fido drift off to sleep…"

Five of the Best Hotels for Surfing by Suzi Dixon

"You could argue that Newquay is England’s capital of surfing, with a thriving nightlife to complement the adrenalin-filled days on the beach. The Headland Hotel is a four-star surfers’ paradise, boasting a dedicated surf school. Surfing is Therapy is run by British Surfing Association certified coach and lifeguard Ben Ridding; through him, the hotel can arrange surf lessons and much more besides, such as coasteering, body boarding and even ‘Junior Baywatch’ for budding lifeguards."

Five of the Best Christmas Hotel Breaks by Kate Simon

"The Christmas lunch at this hotel by the seashore in Newquay may be traditional but its menu is a cut above, rolling out the (Cornish) turkey with cranberry and pancetta stuffing, venison and boar chipolatas and Kahlua gravy. Check in for the four-night “Christmas” break, from 23 December, and you can discover the curious tradition of Headland Horse-racing in the ballroom on Boxing Day."

Top Ten Pet Friendly Hotels by Ursula Hirschkorn

"Every doggy guest checking in to The Headland Hotel is greeted with a welcome letter explaining the hotel’s pet policies and encouraging them to get out and explore the miles of coastal paths around the hotel. They are also provided with soft bedding, a chew stick, scoop bags and a food bowl. Dogs are charged at £15 per night."

What an amazing hotel!! We stayed in one of the suites which had breath taking views. The spa/pool facilities are the best I have ever used, dinner in the Samphire Restaurant was fabulous, and again, amazing views from here too. Great breakfast too! Fab treatments! And to top it off very friendly and professional staff. The location of the hotel is perfect for the beach and coastal walks. Thank you for a very memorable stay!

Posted on by Donna BCustomer stayed May 2017

Fantastic hotel absolutely love it, the hotel is clean fresh and welcoming and the staff are all fantastic, we are always made to feel welcome and relaxed and with us coming here for the past 10 years we know most of the staff and they know us and they remember what we like and we don't need to ask. They're the best people you could come across anywhere and they always go out of their way to ensure our stay is perfect and they like to get to know their guests to improve their guests experience. There is nothing this hotel or the fantastic staff wouldn't go out their way to do for you. We have stopped in a lot of hotels and by far this is superior to all the others. We will be back every year every time we can make it ( thank you sooooo much to everyone at the headland your friendly personal service is second to none)

Everything superb, from the Vintage Afternoon Tea in the Fistral Suite, our Vow Renewal in the Morning Room, the overnight stay in a Fistral room, the girly spa day with lunch. All the staff we encountered were friendly but professional. Booked to go back next year for 3 nights for my 50th birthday in May, can't wait.


Review of The Headland Hotel & Spa

Posted on by Rina LCustomer stayed Jul 2017

We have stayed at the Headland many, many times over the years and we visited again from Friday night to Sunday morning for my husband's 60th Birthday - as this is his most favourite place on the planet! Arriving at The Headland is like coming home and the excitement builds as we catch a first glimpse of this magnificent hotel. It is steeped in history and we have followed the changes and improvements over the years. The staff are exceptional - nothing is too much trouble! The food in Samphire Restaurant is exquisite and easily warrants the rosettes that the head chef has been awarded. The sun shone for our weekend and Fistral beach never disappoints - we love watching the surfers do their thing - and some of the moves are very entertaining. The Headland gives magnificent views over an awesome ocean and waves crashing on the rocks! The Headland really is our heaven on earth - and we can't wait to go back again - probably in November!

What a wonderful stay in your "Lifeboat 1"! In spite of rain and icy winds we had a perfect time-out and will surely return (also for muddy-boots-specials, as recommended by your staff :-)
Thanks for a special holiday, for your great hospitality and for stunning views!

Wonderful hotel, staff were great, excellent location and dog-friendly too. Just above Fistral beach, sea view, fresh air and surf's up for summer. We had a great time and would recommend a holiday there to anyone interested in beach holidays in England - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay (we were two adults, one child and two miniature dachshunds). Try it!
