Family Friendly Hotel in Newquay

We're lucky to have such a fantastic location. With Fistral Beach on our doorstep, a world of adventure awaits
every family holiday in Cornwall at The Esplanade Hotel.


We’re all about fresh sea air, timeless activities and wholesome family holidays in Cornwall. The epic Fistral Beach is right on the doorstep of our family friendly hotel in Newquay and, with almost a kilometre of unspoilt sandy loveliness, it’s the ultimate playground. Flying kites, surfing and rock pooling are our favourite things; here are a few others...


We love children at The Esplanade Hotel, and it’s our job to look after you and your family, ensuring that you have a stay to remember. In addition to our on-site facilities and play areas, we also hold fun free activities for littl'uns at the weekends and during school holidays.


Our leisure area is home to a heated family swimming pool with splash area for little nippers, plus a Jacuzzi and sauna too. There are no family swim time restrictions within opening hours, so you can swim all day if you like!


Some of our most important guests are the smallest, and we want to make sure that they feel just as special as you grown ups. The Little Nippers Zone is a part of this website (a little hub) that's dedicated to kids, so they can get excited and start planning all the fun they're going to have on their holiday.


The Esplanade Hotel is home to the Quiksilver Surf School in Newquay. Whether you're a first time surfer, or advanced in the waves, there's no better way to experience the surf at Fistral Beach than by enjoying a professional lesson with the surf school.

Surfing Breaks

Probably the best surf breaks in the UK! There are very few (if any) venues that can offer a world class surfing break so close to the famous surfing beach, Fistral, and with coaching and hire from Newquay's very own Quiksilver Surf School.

"We stay here 3 or 4 times a year and love it. With a 3 and 7 year old, they love the fact that they can swim and then go in the soft play after. The staff are always friendly and helpful and don't care if our boys are a bit too noisy. Food is always lovely and actually very reasonably priced for how good it is. Love this place - fab! Would definitely recommend for families."

Festive Afternoon Tea & Swim

Festive fun for all the family, with an indoor swim, afternoon tea and arts & crafts! Make a splash this Christmas! Whatever their age your little (and bigger) nippers will love an afternoon full of festive treats and Christmas magic.


We understand the importance of trips away with the family. That's why we welcome guests of all ages (and even your four-legged friends) to come and enjoy a fantastic family holiday in Cornwall.
