It’s not all that often you come across a hotel that meets the needs of the whole family, but Cornwall’s Esplanade Hotel might just be the exception
With a coastal location boasting the most jaw-dropping views, free family activities during school holidays, an on-site surf school, family-friendly dining and an indoor pool, The Esplanade Hotel in Cornwall is so much more than just a hotel – it’s a place where barefoot memories are made for the whole family, whatever the age. It’s dog-friendly too – so your pet pooch doesn’t have to miss any of the fun!
On the outskirts of the famous seaside town of Newquay, follow the smell of the fresh sea air and you’ll stumble across the stunning beach-side family hotel. Although the world-famous Fistral Beach is just a stone’s throw away, this isn’t the hotel’s pinnacle feature. All about the fresh sea air, The Esplanade Hotel is more than just a place to sleep; it’s where wholesome family holidays are enjoyed, timeless activities are discovered, and awesome memories are made, all served up with a sea side view…
The Esplanade’s rooms vary in size, from modern family sea view rooms that sleep up to six, to surf-themed rooms with enough space for a cot. Each are equipped with all a family needs to ensure a comfortable stay by the beach; just ask reception for extras like buckets and spades for those beach days, or towels if you fancy heading down to the indoor heated pool for an after-breakfast swim.
Let’s talk activities. Alongside the indoor play area, swimming pool and pirate ship adventure playground, there’s plenty more to entertain. From pizza making to silent discos, glitter stations to beach volleyball, there’s something to do each day of your stay, all entirely free of charge. Shunning the kids’ club ethos, the hotel encourages the whole family to spend quality time together whilst trying your hand at something new.
As for the adults, Cornwall’s number one rated spa – according to Tripadvisor – is just a stone’s throw away at sister hotel Fistral Beach Hotel and Spa. Guests can slip into a world of bliss at Fistral Spa, with soothing treatments and rejuvenating day packages, all with a handy 10% off. Plus, the spa and hotel are exclusively for adults. Bonus!
With Fistral Beach as your back garden, it would be rude not to take a dip in the water. Guests can head next door to the on-site Quiksilver Surf School Newquay and book a discounted surf lesson with the experts, or be brave and just opt for a simple wetsuit and board hire and get stuck in yourself. It’s not all about board riding though, as the surf school also offer bodyboard lessons, paddle boarding or a thrilling coasteering session. There’s hot showers and changing facilities on-site too, so you can warm up post-dip.
Whether you’ve been riding the waves or constructing sandcastles, you’re sure to have worked up an appetite; head back to the hotel to choose between three dining options. Sink into the comfy chairs in the lounge and get lost in the panoramic view, pick a booth and get cosy in Pebbles Bar or head to the informal Cove Restaurant for a relaxed evening dining experience. With a bounty of fresh ingredients, every delicious meal is lovingly created to make the most of the locally-sourced produce. Guests of all ages can enjoy the best of modern British and European cuisine; from creamy local mussels to sumptuously seasoned steaks, there’s something for everyone on the menu, with a dedicated menu for little ones, too.
