Spotlessly clean. Good food. Very friendly owners (Peter and Jean) - we could not have been better looked after. Overlooking the estuary. Very close to Looe centre. Free parking. Licensed with wonderful views from the conservatory. All in all, absolutely no criticisms or shortcomings. Only just returned home but have already booked a short break for May 2016 !! Howard...

What a great choice to select the Dolphin Guest House. A bit of a last minute to travel to Looe for a short break and we were not disappointed. The guest house is well position, 5 minutes walk into town and ten from the beach, with great views over the estuary. We selected the front facing premier room which was... More

We were very fortunate to have been booked into this guest house whilst spending a rest day from our coastal path exploits. Pete and his wife were very thoughtful and accommodating. Their recommendations about places to eat lunch or dinner were perfect. They took care of the little details. It is no wonder that guests from all parts of the... More

Stayed for 2 nights alone. I stayed in room 5 and had a river view double room for single occupancy which was ideal. The room was very comfortable and very clean. It was nice to have chairs and table in the window to sit and look out. Jean and Peter are great hosts, very helpful and friendly but not pushy.... More

Our first visit but I can't fault our stay here or wish for anything more than Jean & Peter provided - the well-appointed rooms, the 'extras' in the rooms, the bedding and linens and everything else reviewed here by others is superb. The breakfasts are fantastic and I'd have to stay many more weeks to work my way through all... More

Just returned from our sixth or seventh visit and it just gets better every year. Peter and Jean deliver a service that has improved every year.(Much like Peter's wine!!) Rooms are extremely clean and very well presented. Good choices are available for breakfast and the quality of the food is exceptional. Peter and Jean are very knowledgeable about the area... More
