During the early 1930s, accommodation for visitors in Newquay increased as the town’s popularity grew among tourists. Many existing hotels expanded during this time, such as the Great Western Hotel and the now-demolished St. Brannock’s Hotel. However, the art-deco-themed Fistral Bay Hotel and The Pentire Hotel became the first purpose-built hotels in Pentire.

On May 5, 1957, plans to open the hotel during the summer were delayed when a fire broke out. Someone from the neighbouring Philema Hotel reported flames coming from the foyer, followed by cracking windows and visible smoke plumes. The local fire department successfully extinguished the fire. Workmen were on site the next day to repair damage.

After 75 years of business, the hotel closed in 2006, and, after subsequently falling into disrepair, gained local notoriety as “the town’s biggest eyesore

As of December 2019, however, a businessman plans to purchase the former Fistral Bay Hotel and renovate and reopen the building as a new hotel.
