Read our review of The Esplanade Hotel, Newquay

The Esplanade Hotel re-opened in May 2021 after a complete refresh and refurb. Overlooking the famous surf beach, Fistral, Newquay, the hotel is famed for its laid back beach vibe, free family activities during the school holidays and on-site surf school. Whether it’s a family adventure, romantic couples break or group surf trip, The Esplanade Hotel in Newquay is the perfect spot for unforgettable seaside stays.

Walk out of the hotel and onto the beach, where you’ll find rockpools, sand and waves for days – surfers of all abilities are welcomed and the Quiksilver Surf School, which is a one-stop-shop for board hire, wetsuit hire, individual tuition and classes, is on hand, so you don’t even need to bring a bodyboard.

No matter what your family set-up, you’ll find plenty of options – from family rooms with bunkbeds, to a double with sofa bed, all 85 rooms are en-suite. A babysitting service is provided so adults can enjoy live entertainment in the kid-free Elements Cocktail Bar. The whole clan meanwhile can enjoy films in the new cinema room and splash to their hearts content in the swimming pool. Parents wanting a little peace and quiet can also escape to the adults only spa at sister hotel, Fistral Spa, just up the road.
