A very welcoming hotel with lovely rooms and friendly, helpful hosts. We would not hesitate to recommend as we would definitely stay again. Although more than walking distance from Looe, the local train service stops a few hundred yards up the road and saves the hassle of parking in Looe which can be expensive during the day. Plenty to see... More

Extremely generous hosts! It was an idyllic location, a former coach stop with a scenic train journey 2 minutes from the front door. We enjoyed knowing the local history especially Cornish mining in Sandplace. Lovely breakfast and dinner provided in a beautiful garden setting. Gill was extremely informative about the history, heritage and conservation of Looe. We would highly recommend... More

Me and my mum recently got back from our second stay at Polraen and loved every moment of it once again. The fact that our first visit was in June and as soon as we got home we then booked another trip for September says a lot about what a great place it is to stay. Gill and Martin were... More

Stayed for three nights in september. Glad we chose to stay 5 minutes outside looe. Well worth getting away from the seagulls etc and enjoy this peaceful location. Great hosts full of good ideas of places to visit. Lovely and adequate breakfast. One small frustration- shower very slow. Will go again. Totally recommend.

Planning a last minute week end in Cornwall we booked at Polraen Country House the day just before arriving for one night. I felt comfortable and welcome from the start. Gill took my booking and hearing my accent she started speaking French with me, and did the same effort all over our stay, which I found really nice. The room... More

A wonderful country house hotel with a very warm welcome from Gill and Martin. Very clean and comfortable rooms and most important to us with two boys, very child friendly. Really enjoyed sitting in the bar in the evening meeting their regular customers while the children were allowed to play and watch tv in the lounge. Nothing is too much... More

Needed hotel near Looe. Perfect quiet spot but easy to find and 10 minutes to Looe. Accommodation very good and we slept well. Food provided by Martin to high standard and we looked forward to our meals. Very enjoyable. Thanks Gill and Martin.

Thanks Gill and Martin for another lovely relaxing weekend away. The Polraen Country House Hotel is a small family run hotel with a lovely relaxing atmosphere located ideally for exploring Cornwall. From crabbing in Looe Harbour, wonderful walks along the coast or taking a trip on the looe valley railway. The welcome is warm and friendly and nothing is ever... More
