Very comfortable room and to our surprise a superb meal in the restaurant not a rubber chicken in sight, I even asked the chef if he could change the pasta dish for a risotto and he was happy to create the dish from scratch. We are currently house hunting in the area and this was our sixth trip in the... More

I booked a two night stay here with my partner this weekend. We arrived and found the hotel easily regardless of the recent landslip in Looe. As we arrived the young blonde receptionist (I cannot remember anyone's name, I'm useless) was extremely helpful in booking us in. Showing our room and around the room and offered menus of the evening... More

Stayed 2 nights at Barclay house, the public rooms were well kept, the breakfast was good though everything is served to you there is no buffet for cereals etc, we found this a bit off putting as you don't like to keep asking. The main problem was the bedroom which was very worn and dated nothing cosy about it, this... More

My friends and I spent New Years Eve staying in Redcliffe, a separate house next to the hotel but part of the complex. The views were great, and the breakfast at Barclay House restaurant was excellent. A very large patio at Redcliffe overlooked the valley and estuary, and there were lots of local walks we went on, well advised by... More

We booked our two-night stay on the 'phone, having seen various reviews of BH on the net and in other places. Our reception was warm, and we were shown to our room, No 5, with great speed; not the best room available, but then we were not paying the highest rate. It was perfectly acceptable. Both dinners were absolutely to... More

After getting married my partner and I stayed here for a week. We were in room 9 which had a lovely balcony the only let down was the fact that the beds were 2 single beds zipped together the ridge meant that it was not very comfortable. For a room that was recommend for honeymooners I would have thought it... More

So we are left wondering what has happened... More

Stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. The first night was in preparation for my brother in laws wedding. We stayed in the family suite, which sleeps 6. As a family of 5 this was ideal accommodation. 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms and a pull out double bed in the lounge area. The cost was £150 for one night as the... More

We stayed for a week in one of the cottages belonging to this hotel in September 2013 and really do think there should be prior warning about the 73 steps up to the property from the hotel car park. Admittedly there is a higher level car park but this is a single track, unmade road with a hairpin bend, still... More
