Things to do

We have something for everyone!

On site we have the modern & contemporary Silks Bistro & Champagne Bar, serving a mixture of homemade and locally sourced cuisine, including the all-important sea side treat of Fresh Battered Fish & Chips, accompanied by a chilled glass of Champagne. The perfect match! To then watch the sun set on our beautiful sea view terrace.


However if you are looking to venture from the Hotel, we have several establishments to recommend. Our Front of House Team will be on hand to advise and organise reservations, maybe even a taxi! So you can kick back and relax, stress free.

If you have a special occasion or really want to push the boat out! Then why not visit one of the famous restaurants on offer, such as Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen in Watergate Bay, Rick Stein’s Sea Food Restaurant in Padstow or maybe even Nathan Outlaw at the St Enodoc Hotel in Rock.

Something for the little ones!

The Blue Reef Aquarium is only a 5 minutes’ walk into the centre of Newquay or take a walk on the wild side, to Newquay Zoo and adventure with the big cats for the day.

Newquay has several surfing events throughout the year and the biggest of all is the annual Boardmasters event every August, a fantastic surf, skate and music festival. If you are also looking for a true Cornish experience then the Annual Royal Cornwall show is the place to be in June.

Unwind in either our outdoor or indoor swimming pools or get away from it all and have a stroll on one of the many beautiful beaches surrounding the Atlantic Hotel. We have the perfect location for many Coastal routes or even a short walk to Newquay’s Harbour and take a trip Deep Sea Fishing for the day.


We can arrange anything from surfing lessons, coasteering, Golf, or even tickets to the world famous ‘Eden Project’.

Don’t forget a spot of retail therapy at your leisure, Newquay’s town centre is filled with individual and specialist local shops and cafes as well as national names all mixed in with surf shops and boutiques.  The possibilities are endless.
