Little boutique hotel slap bang on the slipway of the tiny bay with gorgeous view from the bar/restaurant. Attentive staff, excellent food both for breakfast and dinner. Cosy yet light and airy, contemporary feel without losing touch of the fact that's it is in a tiny fishing village. Bedroom was very comfortable, king size bed, flat panel TV with sky,... More

This is a lovely hotel off the beaten track. It's located in a very small working fishing cove and not suitable for sitting on the beach though there are other beautiful beaches either side which are a car drive or can be accessed via the coastal path (not an easy walk). Hotel is clean and modern. The room we stayed... More

The Lugger hotel is a really beautiful hotel and the location is stunning. We stayed in a deluxe room across the slipway from the main building; the room itself was faultless; listening to the sea as you lay in bed was a real treat, as were the views from the patio day and night. The decor in the room is... More

We have just returned from our third trip to this hotel which of course speaks volumes in itself. It couldn't be in a better location in terms of getting away from it all, beautiful fishing cove, but as other reviewers have said beware of narrow lanes en route. The food both at breakfast and in the evening was excellent and... More

We stayed at this hotel for our mini-moon during the last week of July. We had The Lookout which was a room in a small hut (which we assume used to be a shed) overlooking the sea. Although the room was small, it was cosy and comfortable and not being attached to the main building made the stay a little... More

This is a delightful sophisticated romantic hotel near the shore of a fairly little fishing port. The ambience is very pleasant being relaxed but tastefully decorated. The fine dining makes use of the locally caught fish and shell fish. If it is on the menu try the crab mousse.

We arrived on a rainy day to have cream tea, this is the first time we have visited since the hotel changed owners. I have to say that I wasn't impressed, it felt like a lounge for their residents to hang out and like they weren't prepared for other guests. I would have put in down to that twilight time... More

Stayed here for a couple nights in a standard room, which was lovely, it was a good size with a queen sized bed, tea & coffee and all toiletries, and best of all we had a little view of the sea! (room 306) We booked bed and breakfast and ate in the dining room both mornings, I had the full... More

Just spent a week at the Lugger Hotel and all I can say is we will be returning. This hotel stands overlooking the most beautiful stunning scenery, we were upgraded to a little cottage with amazing sea views, our room had robes and slippers and complementary magazines, each day cakes and shortbread left for our return, each night chocolate and...
