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

This is the second time we have visited The Dolphin and have to say it is a first class, luxurious b & b with comfortable beds in beautiful rooms in a lovely setting. 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

We spent 3 nights in a premier room at this wonderful B&B. 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
