A picturesque and contemporary hotel overlooking the world famous Fistral Beach in Newquay.


Genuinely welcoming, the Esplanade Hotel in Newquay is more than just a place to sleep - it's a place where you can enjoy quality family holidays on the Cornwall coast, splashing about in the heated indoor pool and dining together in our informal family friendly restaurant, Cove.

We're all about the fresh sea air

Timeless activities and wholesome family time in Cornwall is what makes the perfect holiday. The beach is our playground and rock pooling, flying kites and surfing are our favourite things! During the holidays we run a fun schedule of free family friendly activities in Newquay. We love getting messy and generally having lots of fun...this is the kind of place where childhood memories are made.

Quiksilver Surf School
Home to the Quiksilver Surf School, everyone from beginner to pro can be catered for. There's also an indoor, child friendly swimming pool, a hotel bar, and indoor and outdoor play areas for the children. The Esplanade Hotel really does have something for all the family!
