My wife and I stayed here for 3 days at the beginning of August. Gill and Martin were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. Room was perfect and the breakfasts were filling, the bar was also a welcome sight after long days exploring Cornwall's many attractions. Drive, train or bus into Looe, the choice is yours.

Very welcoming and friendly place to stay. Perfect size room and very tasty breakfast in the mornings! Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay near Looe but away from the centre where it gets very busy! Perfect location.

My husband and I stayed here with my mother-in-law in June for 3 nights. We had a lovely welcome from Martin, who let us in slightly early, showed us to our rooms and got us a drink in the garden. There is a very friendly and informal atmosphere, which means you can come and go when you want without worrying.... More

Thank you very much for your kind comments and for sharing your suggestions for improvement. We pride ourselves on our usual high standards of cleanliness. Operating at almost 100% occupancy this summer does present certain challenges in deep cleaning all our rooms so thank you for noting the dust in the shower extractor. We plan to replace all those that... More
