Our small family (three adults and grand daughter aged 9) spent a couple of nights at Polrean early in July. We chose this for its impressive looks, trip advisor reviews and it's location - we were well rewarded. Gill and Martin were properly interested in looking after us well (as in, you could have been their first customer) and that... More

The welcome was friendly and helpful. We had booked "King" for our stay and yes we did have a king sized bed but it was in a normal sized room! Everything seemed cramped and there was only room for one chair in this double room. The window seat did have a cushion in it, but that was of no use... More

You there, young family! Are you looking for the Monkey Sanctuary (a nearby attraction)? Did you stop at the Polraen Country House to ask for directions? Did you get in your car and drove on? You should not have. Go back and stay. Bause you just missed the nicest hotel in Cornwall. Not only is Polraen a beautiful old house.... More

We only stayed one night in this hotel to go to a party nearby, so we didn't get to try the restaurant. Our hosts, Gill and Martin, were really friendly and welcoming. Our room was fresh and pretty in blue and yellow, and spotlessly clean. The bed was really comfortable. The shower in the ensuite had good pressure and hot... More

Polraen is in a lovely location with its own car park. Sandplace train station a short walk away, and the bus between Liskeard and Looe and Polperro stops right outside the front door - yet Polraen is situated in quiet countryside! The owners, Gill and Martin, and their staff make every visitor very welcome and there is always good service... More

From the moment we arrived even tho early, Martin made us welcome with a pot of tea. Our comfortable room over looking gardens, lovely. The bed was so comfortable could have it airlifted to my home. Was a little apprehensive about road being so close during the night but no probs even with window open. The breakfast was very tasty... More

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing 10 day stay at Polraen. Gill and Martin are the most friendly and welcoming hosts - nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the garden room which was a good size, nicely furnished and had a delightful view of the garden.Gill is very helpful with information about local places of interest... More

We had a lovely weekend with Jill and Martin who were excellent hosts. The room was really nice and Jill's help with local places to visit and transport was well received and Martin's breakfasts were superb. Will certainly be going back.
