Surf's up in Newquay. Britain's unofficial capital of all things water-sports has always attracted party-hearty surfer dudes, and its peaceful seaside location makes it popular with older travellers too. With more luxury and boutique hotels cropping up, city-slickers on romantic weekend breaks have been flocking to Newquay.

Whether you're hiking Land's End, tempting your tastebuds at Rick Stein's restaurants in nearby Padstow, or hanging ten with the best of them, the first step is finding the best place to stay in Newquay – for the best price.

Where to stay in Newquay

Newquay is quite small, so no matter where you base yourself you'll still be able to reach the town's attractions easily. Hire a car at Newquay Airport and you'll be able to explore even more of Cornwall.

Town Centre

If you're in Newquay for surfing, choose a hotel in the town centre. The nearby Great Western Beach is a fab place to learn, and there are plenty of surf shops in this neighbourhood where you can book a lesson. Fistral and Tolcarne beaches are just a short stroll (or bus ride) away, too.  

Pentire

Pentire is a peaceful area, perfect for families and hikers. Three are great walking trails on the Pentire Headlands. Accommodation here tends to be a bit more upmarket, and there are a few small cafés and restaurants to visit. It's just a ten minute drive from the town centre, if you need a bit more action.

Porth

Planning a luxury break in Newquay? Look no further than Porth. This peaceful neighbourhood feels a bit like a village, with boutique hotels and posh B&Bs dominating the accommodation scene. Nearby beaches include the brilliantly named Lusty Glaze and Whipsiderry.

Cheap hotels in Newquay

It's easy to find great accommodation deals in Newquay. Simply enter your dates, and filter the results based on your budget. To find the lowest price hotels, sort the results by 'price low to high'. For a real bargain, sort by 'guest rating' or 'most popular'.

While hotel prices do fluctuate, these wallet-friendly hotels usually stand head-and-shoulders above the rest when it comes to nabbing a bargain.

Legacy Hotel Victoria – This three star hotel overlooks Great Western Beach and has a few in-house fitness facilities, including a swimming pool and sauna.

Blue Reef – Surfers will adore this hotel, just 200m from the beach. Surfing lessons, a surfboard storage room and wetsuit-drying room are among its facilities.

Longbeach Adults Only Hotel – This party hotel overlooks Fistral Beach, and has a sundeck perfect for watching the sun go down with an ice-cold beer.

Best time to visit Newquay

Summer (particularly July and August) is the most popular time to visit Newquay. Weather in Cornwall often rivals Spain at this time of year, and families flock to the town's beaches from London and other nearby cities. The surf in Newquay is good all year round, but September and October are the best months for offshore waves. Waves in May and June are mellower, but still good.

Cheapest time to stay in Newquay

Like most British cities, the most expensive time to visit Newquay is the summer. You can find a bargain if you head to Newquay during the shoulder seasons – spring and autumn. Winter in Newquay will definitely be cheaper, but it can feel a bit like a ghost town as the crowds of summer are long gone.

If you're in the area, definitely check out the Newquay Aquarium. As well as some of the local shops.

Picturesque. Great for walking along the coast. The South West Coast Path is well marked and easy for moat stretches.

We were here on our honeymoon in October so we don't know what it is like during the season. It was the first week of our trip after our hectic wedding so we wanted to stay in a really nice hotel on the Cornish Coast and just relax. The hotel we chose just happened to be in Newquay. I got the sense that it was the UK version of Panama City, FL or a surfing town in California. It was very beach vacation oriented. You don't see a lot of Americans there. I am glad we went, but I don't think I would go back. If we went back to Cornwall, we would stay somewhere like St. Ives.
