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

Breakfasts are lovely too, nothing at all to fault and that's the first time we have ever felt we could say that, and lovely hosts too. Don't... More

I've just stayed for the third time at the Dolphin Guest House. I'm on a mission to have stayed in all 7 rooms (and then go round for Lap 2). Peter and Jean Cox are a lovely, warm and friendly couple who make all their guests feel special. Tea or coffee upon arrival are complimentary, which is a good start!... More

Jean and Peter Cox were our hosts during our stay and were both super, super friendly, helpful and informative about their beautiful town of Looe. Our room overlooked the river with superb views across to woodland, was very clean and beautifully decorated. Breakfast was a fantastic dining experience... More
