25th Wedding Anniversary Celebration 5 stars 30 May 2018

We stayed at the Atlantic Hotel for our 25th Wedding Anniversary at the beginning of May. First impression of the hotel …. WOW ! The Reception and all areas of the hotel were just amazing and spotlessly clean. We had a third floor room with beautiful views over Newquay’s beaches, it was just stunning. Our double room was very comfy and spacious with tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom with shower and roll top bath was just so relaxing. Breakfast was very good each morning and all staff throughout the hotel were extremely pleasant and helpful. We had a fabulous stay at the Atlantic Hotel and look forward to returning soon. Thank you everyone at the Atlantic Hotel.

Our Favourite Hotel in Cornwall 5 stars May 2018

Having seen a lot of the world we are now enjoying visiting more places in our own delightful country for short and medium breaks and Cornwall is one of our favourite counties. We stayed at the Atlantic Hotel on a previous occasion, loved it so much that it is now our preferred base when visiting Cornwall. This hotel is still privately owned and is a delight to stay in at any time of the year. The decor is superb and reflects the heritage and interesting history of The Atlantic Hotel. It features all the amenities one would expect of a four star hotel including a delightful Champagne Bar and Bistro, (Silks), Swimming Pool, and a host of other interesting places to sit and reflect, read, drink or meet with others. Location on the headland is outstanding and the views over Newquay and the Atlantic coast are mesmerising in their beauty. Breakfast is taken in the main Dining Room overlooking the sea, and what a breakfast it is with a fabulous array of foods on offer to suit all needs and tastes and to set yourself up for a day. The surfing beach of Fistral Bay is just a few minutes walk away, as is the main town of Newquay and its wonderful beaches. This hotel is also very well located for exploring other parts of enchanting Cornwall. The Atlantic Hotel is dog friendly, and dogs are treated as valued guests (along with their owners) and the hotel rooms are spacious and very well appointed with all the amenities needed to make your stay extra special. The hotel staff are all in a league of their own being friendly, professional, and all prepared to go the extra mile to ensure guest satisfaction. This is one hotel for which I can find absolutely no fault whatsoever, and it is no wonder that guests tend to become regulars and go back there again and again. We certainly will.

Atlantic Hotel — 5 star reviewed May 7 at 1:52pm

We chose the Atlantic as our wedding venue on the 28th April 2018 and are so glad we did. The hotel, staff and obviously location are just perfect. It was the most amazing day that went off without a hitch. The staff cannot do enough for you, Sophie, Cath and Lorraine dealt with us during the 2 year lead up to the day and nothing was too much trouble. The food was amazing and everyone commented on the high standards. Highly recommended.

Had a wonderful 2 night stay here. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who were very welcoming and helpful. Rooms were really lovely and the sea view fantastic. Food in the restaurant was exceptional and not bad prices either! Lovely pool and sauna area. And the fact you can enjoy a massage on site is great. Would definitely stay again.

A Spa Day with Friends- Our competition winners’ story.

We recently ran a competition via the Atlantic Hotel’s social media to find four friends to enjoy a luxury spa day at our Ocean View Treatment Room, and become the face of our spa.

We wanted to capture images of real friends enjoying our exclusive facilities, bespoke treatments and award winning food and drink.

 The response was phenomenal! Our competition really seemed to strike a chord on social media, with 100s of entries from women nominating themselves and their friends.

Stories of joy, heartbreak, overcoming all odds, women celebrating their size, 4 generations of families wanting to spend a day together, and much more were shared with us, and above all, our entrants recognising that they deserve some time!

Choosing our winners was such a hard task! After laughing, crying, and feeling inspired by so many stories, we finally chose 4 friends………

Meet Carol, Natalie, Sophia and Emma.

We loved the fact that they have been friends for over 20 years and had been trying to organize a spa day, being busy mums taking some time out to enjoy some time together as friends was really important to them.

We were proud to announce them “The Face of our Spa” and invited them to enjoy a special spa day and photo shoot by nationally acclaimed photographer Mike Searle.

Four very excited ladies were shown to our exclusive spa, and welcome Atlantic themed cocktails were ordered, spa introduction forms were filled in, and after changing into their fluffy robes, our photographer got some shots of the ladies by the pool and in the hot tub looking out to sea. Lots of giggles, and selfies were taken and we left the girls to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views and relaxing spa facilities, including our heated pool, sauna and steam room.

 

Our Therapist Patsy Bevan performed her signature “Soothe your Mind Body and Soul” back treatments using the relaxing combination oils of Lavender and Chamomile from The Cornish Trevarno Organic Skin Care.

The treatments allowed the ladies to spend time nourishing themselves free from their busy lives and children.

One of our ladies decided to have her nails painted using Zoya Nail Varnish that is also free from all formeldhahyde and harsh chemicals.

With an amazing view, Our Ocean View Treatment Room is pure luxury not to be missed!!

Our ladies opted to stay in their fluffy robes for lunch, which was served in our sea view Café Atlantica, main meals from our extensive specially created spa menu were ordered, with a few more extra cocktails for good measure. Well, you don’t win a luxury spa day every day so celebrations were in order!

Our lovely ladies really did represent our spa beautifully, with images showing friendship and fun that models just cannot match!

Carol said “Thank you & The Atlantic hotel for our amazing day and the opportunity.

We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend the hotel and staff.

Beautiful memories made in a beautiful location”.

Ocean View Spa Days start from only £52pp* including a welcome drink, use of fluffy robes and slippers, a stunning 30-minute treatment, full spa use, and a stunning lunch and drink. Our luxurious, exclusive spa offers a wonderfully relaxing day to remember forever. https://atlantichotelnewquay.co.uk/specials/5180/ or call 01637 872244 and book your spa day.

We want every wedding at the Atlantic to be the best day of the bride and groom’s lives and we strive to make it as special as possible. But when it’s all over, and you’re sat at home in casual clothes rather than a beautiful dress or suave tux, we want you to be able to remember everything about your wedding day in Cornwall.

How to find your perfect wedding venue

Picture your wedding day, how does it look? How do you feel? What is your theme? What will you be enjoying for your wedding breakfast?

Your wedding venue in Cornwall is one of the most important parts of your wedding day. We’ve put our heads together to give five questions you should be asking every potential venue for once you’ve said those magic words!

Is it the right size for me?

Size matters when it comes to your wedding, it’s important to make sure your venue can comfortably accommodate your guests. Here at the Atlantic, we have a variety of licensed wedding spaces, from an intimate get-together in the sea view gazebo to a grand dinner in the ballroom for 500 people, there is something for everyone.

Are there packages or can I choose?

Although many venues put together packages to help guide you when planning your wedding in Cornwall, the best venues will let you tailor make parts and even create a bespoke wedding if required. We understand that not everyone wants the same wedding so you can choose your arrival drink, canapés, how you make your entrance, when you make your entrance. Some couples choose to have a sit down lunch, others a black tie dinner and perhaps even an informal BBQ, it really is all about you at the end of the day.

Inside or outside?

Choosing an inside or outside ‘I do’ is a big decision when it comes to Cornish weddings. Join in matrimony under a sea view gazebo before walking into an event full of celebration and champagne!

Will you have any other weddings on the day?

On your special day you want to be the centre of attention (and the only one wearing white for sure). Being the exclusive wedding on that day is really important to us here at the Atlantic. This has to be the most important day of your life and the only person you should be sharing it with is your partner!

Is there an on-site wedding planner?

A dedicated point of contact for all of your questions leading up to the big day is absolutely priceless. We believe in one person, all the time – you have utter exclusivity and our full attention. From last minute niggles, menu changes, questions about the running order and even that last minute email when you decide the night before that you want to do a wedding speech yourself! A calm, confident, collected wedding co-ordinator is worth her weight in gold. Find out more about ours here

There are an infinite amount of questions you can ask about a wedding venue, and at The Atlantic Hotel we love to answer every single one of them. It’s only right that you choose the venue that’s right for you, and make sure you take a look around for yourselves to see if you’ve found your “wow” wedding venue.

Contact us today to book a private show around.

How to create a beach themed wedding

Many brides we see dream of incorporating the ocean into their big day, and with the Atlantic Ocean outside every window of the hotel, we’ve found five subtle ways to help you incorporate your love of the Cornish beaches into your big day.

Think Freshwater:

There’s certain poetry to a bride wearing pearls during a coastal ceremony, it’s a subtle nod to the magic of mermaids and the beauty and serenity of the sea.

Coral colours:

A dash of coral on a wedding day just gives a hint of summer shindigs by the seaside and is a theme that can be delicately carried throughout both bridal party and groomsmen.

Just spot the colourful pocket square of the Best Man at the bar as he prepares for his speech.

Driftwood centrepieces:

A product of the sea is always a fine sight at The Atlantic Hotel, and a table centrepiece in our Grand Ballroom showcasing driftwood in a new, glamorous light looks superb for vows by the waterside.

A cork-stoppered memory:

Let your guests take a little piece of heaven home with them.

Miniature cork-stoppered jars of sand are a delightful way to bring a seaside theme to a wedding day, especially as it’s as if the moment you say ‘I do’ next to Fistral Beach has been captured for everyone to hold close to their hearts forever.   Why not send message-in-a-bottle type invitations as a continuation of the theme?

Pebble place cards:

These aren’t just pretty; they’re practical, too! Doubling up as favours, writing guests’ names on pebbles or shells instead of place cards gives a taste of the beach without going overboard.

These are just a few suggestions. From tables named after beaches you’ve had picnics on to hues of blues for your bridesmaids or a fish and chip supper followed by Cornish ice cream, there are no limits to a stylish beach-themed wedding and with views of the stunning sea from every room at the Atlantic, you couldn’t hold it in a better location. Contact us today to discuss planning your bespoke beach-themed wedding.
