Perched on 10 acres of headland overlooking the dramatic North Cornish coast, yet short stroll into the centre of Newquay, Atlantic Hotel offers glorious views of the sea from all its rooms. Recently awarded Modern Luxury Hotel of the Year 2016 by the Luxury Travel Guide ,this art deco hotel (with stunning original features) is hugely enjoyable in all weathers, from winter storm watching to savouring a glass of fizz on the sunny terrace. Each room is individually designed, chic and spacious. All rooms have lovely views over the harbour, coast or Atlantic Ocean as well as cosy comforts such as memory foam mattresses, 42 inch plasma TVs, bathrobes and tea and coffee making facilities. Some rooms are equipped with balconies and others provide handy access to the pool. Silks Bistro is an AA Rosette-winning chic Mediterranean style restaurant with lovely views over the sea. Expect finely prepared local ingredients, including delectably fresh seafood. Recent favourites on the menu included seafood linguine, pan fried seabass, trio of pork loin and battered cod with hand cut chips. Another special treat is time well spent in the Champagne Bar, where sunset watching with a cocktail or glass of fizz is a fine tradition. Lounging by the indoor and outdoor pools is also understandably popular, as are jaunts down to nearby Fistral Beach, one of the UK’s finest surf beaches. The hotel can help arrange surfing lessons, golf, and coastal walks, plus give advice on nearby attractions such as Port Isaac and St Ives.
