Great Break

Have just spent a week at the Beresford. Hotel staff really friendly special mention to Louis our waiter and the superstar they cry Tina who is the cleaner, glass lifter and cabaret all in one. Well worth upgrading to a standard plus room. Food good but public areas really tired. All in all a great holiday and we would go back.

Enjoyable Holiday, Good Hotel

I have just returned from an 8 day Shearings break at the Beresford hotel. My allocated room was warm clean and comfortable. The included and 2 extra excursions were enjoyable. The waitress Laura was always welcoming and smiling at meal times, good choice of food and good quality. The 4 free drinks voucher was an added bonus. The tour driver Chris was brilliant his knowledge of the area was excellent and he always entertained us and looked after us he would always do anything for us.

Come on Shearings

This hotel needs a lot of TLC, the room which was a twin was very small & the bathroom was all bits & pieces. The food was very good with plenty of choice. The bar & waiting staff were very nice & helpful, reception staff could have been a bit happier. The outings were well organised & very enjoyable, our driver Roger was very good. Come on Shearings stop concentrating on all these premier room that you are charging more money for & update the basic rooms! Not just at this hotel.

Shearings - Well done

Our first holiday with Shearings, and we both enjoyed our 5 day break in Newquay. The hotel, our bedroom and its facilities, staff, food and entertainment were all excellent. The two scheduled excursions were both enjoyable, and the many coach drivers employed by Shearings were very knowledgeable of the local history and places of interest. An excellent break. We will use Shearings again in the future for a value for money package

Enjoyable Break

My husband and I have just returned from a lovely break at the very well-run Beresford Hotel. Everyone was so happy, helpful and friendly and you felt that they cared that you enjoyed your time at the hotel. The rooms were clean, warm and comfortable. The food plentiful, well presented and tasty. Thursday was the best evening entertainment. Roger our driver was brilliant, very knowledgeable about Newquay and the surrounding area, looked after and entertained his passengers.

Well worth a stay

Had an excellent time at the Beresford. Staff were so friendly. Food was so good, no waiting, and plenty of it, high quality. Our room was above the norm, newly decorated, comfortable bed and immaculate bathroom, bath and shower. Entertainment every night if you wanted it. Shearings travel is worth every penny, in fact I don’t know how they do it for what you pay. We definitely will be travelling with them again in the near future.

Value for money

Our room at Beresford was a bit dated and we would suggest that the panel heater should be replaced with a fan heater as the room despite 2 heaters was a bit cold. Food selection quality and service was very good. Staff always very helpful and friendly Shearings should be proud of you. Entertainment, a bit overkill on bingo. Overall rating for the hotel, excellent value for money. Look forward to returning in the spring.



1 February 2014

Good Value

Room very clean & tea & coffee always plentiful. Good food, both breakfast & evening meal excellent choice & quality all made even better by the fantastic staff. Bar/reception also excellent & always helpful. Entertainment, Thursday especially brilliant, comedian was hilarious. Although our bedroom was really warm, the dining room, bar & entertainment areas were cold. If I could rate this hotel purely on the staff out of 10 it would be 12

We have just returned from this hotel after a new year break, the staff, the food, the entertainment, were second to none, all the staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble, the hotel is old but still kept very clean, the fire alarm was activated twice by hair straighteners and heaters by careless people, but of course the hotel staff were blamed by people who just liked to moan, we enjoyed our stay so much, we booked for new year 2015, Well done Bay Beresford. Highly recommend.

This hotel is well run with all the staff being friendly and helpful and so fast when asked for something. The room was spotless the meals lovely. They don't talk about customer service here they get on and do it and do it so well.

A Really Good Break

We have recently returned from the Beresford Hotel Newquay. The Shearings interchange at Stretton was exceptionally well organised, although the interchange building was very crowded. Our baggage was taken from us on arrival, and was not seen again until we arrived in Newquay where it was delivered to our room. Our driver Chris was brilliant and really entertained us. The hotel was very clean with excellent service, the room was comfortable with plenty of hot water for showers. Highly recommended.

Went with friends on a self drive long weekend at the Beresford Hotel. Booked hotel parking, nice touch your parking bay is marked up with your name and car registration so no hassle. The staff at this hotel are brilliant, nothing to much trouble. The hotel is very clean and the food is wonderful. Enjoyed the entertainment, and a special mention to Caroline, one of the entertainers. She made the night of my birthday that bit extra. Best value for money I have ever spent. Will definitely return.

Beresford Hotel Newquay

We have just returned from a 5 day break at the Beresford Hotel. On arrival I think it is the most organised check in we have ever had. All the staff are friendly and accommodating and Laura who served us in the dining room met us every morning with a lovely cheery smile. The food was very good and service excellent. The hotel was very clean, the bedroom was lovely and clean and well furnished. Entertainment was very good. We will go again and I will most definitely recommend this hotel to our friends

Beresford Hotel, Newquay

Have just returned from a 5 day holiday at the Beresford Hotel, Newquay, and we enjoyed the break immensely. The hotel is in a superb position with excellent views, must have sea view room, staff all very helpful, food very good and hotel very clean and comfortable. Entertainment every night .We have stayed at several Shearing Hotels and think this is probably the best one we have stayed in, definitely recommend it.

Holiday Review

We stayed for a long weekend, from the moment we arrived the staff couldn`t have been more helpful. We arrived late there was a lovely lady working in the cafe who stayed behind to make us some tea to go with our evening meal. The room had everything you could want and very clean. On Friday there was a singer who played a guitar a really good night. We will try other bay hotels. I would recommend this one for excellent all round value.

Holiday Review

We have just got back from our holiday in Newquay and this hotel is one of the best hotels I have ever been in, the facilities are very good and all the housekeeping staff and restaurant staff are excellent and very accommodating to people’s needs . Excellent value for money and would definitely stay here again. And Chris the coach driver was a lovely person who always thought about his passengers and would do anything for anyone and entertained all of us really well.

So very helful and caring

My parents have just returned from an extended stay at the Beresford Hotel, due to the ill health of my mother, who spent 2 weeks in hospital. They are 80 and 85 and my poor Dad was at the Beresford all alone waiting for Mum to be discharged. The staff could not have been more caring and helpful. They arranged a room for his extended stay, arranged cabs and doctor’s appointments, relayed numerous daily messages from the family in London, fed and entertained him every day, and all this for no extra cost!

Good but with some faults

Just back - great value for money - if you are lucky enough to get Chris as you driver this will definitely enhance your holiday! Staff in hotel very friendly and helpful. However, and as a budget holiday this is a little unfair BUT rooms in need of a little TLC. HOWEVER, the biggest problem is there are only 2 lifts (and one of those was not working) and each only carry 2 passengers! Stairways are narrow and there are a lot of them! If one (or all of your party) has mobility issues this can be a problem.

Beresford Hotel

My Husband and I spent a lovely 5 day -4 night break at the Beresford. Clean room but does need updating (quilts would be better than blankets) also instructions on how to use the showers, we met people who were having trouble on getting the showers to work. Reception Staff, Bar staff, Waiters and Waitresses very friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them, (thanks Jenna) Food was very good no complaints. Day Trips excellent -thanks Lawrence- Yes, we would go again - excellent value :-)

Beresford Hotel

Very good holiday hotel clean and comfortable. The staff very friendly nothing too much trouble. Only thing that blighted it was the inconsiderate people having the TV on until 1.00pm in the morning then moving about the room from 4.00am onwards and door banging. We were on the 2nd floor. We will go to this Hotel again but would ask for a 3rd floor room.
