We stayed here for 2 nights recently and thought it was a lovely hotel with exceptionally friendly staff. The weather was excellent on our first night so we sat out on the terrace for drinks. It is a lovely environment overlooking the river (only complaint here is that it would have been nice if some of the trees had been... More

Stayed for five nights last week. Stunning views with lovely grounds and gardens. Staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. Weather was also very good which I must admit added to our enjoyment. Ate one evening in the restaurant and had a lovely meal. We also had a glass of Camel Valley Champagne sitting out on... More

We stayed here for one night to celebrate our wedding anniversary (which in it's self was much appreciated as most hotels inflict a min 2/3 night stay this time of year) we opted for the kingsize bed and jacuzzi bath room 9 and were very impressed with the balcony and stunning view, huge comfortable bed and plenty of space. We... More

I stayed in Barclay House for only one night in the family suite with all my family. The personnel was really kind and helped us to spend a really pleasant time in Looe. The breakfast was one of the best I had in England and served with care in the beautiful hall of the House. We will recommend this place... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in one of the cottages at The Barclay House Hotel booked at very short notice. We stayed in one of the charming cottages. The cottage was fab with lovely views and ingeniously designed on split levels into the hillside. Breakfasts were delicious - we didn't eat in the restaurant in the... More

Our stay at the Barclay House Hotel was a memorable one, it is a beautiful Victorian villa set high overlooking the East River in Looe. Even though this old house is in need of some re-decoration in places, we loved the ambience of the building and location. Staff, particularly receptionist Michelle and Martin in the restaurant were very attentive and... More

The hospitality of all the staff was exceptional and so helpful and efficient. A big thank you t you all. Our room, which was room 4, had the most beautiful views, was a good size and we could sit in bed with the curtains open looking out at the view with no worry of being looked onto. The breakfast was... More

This hotel is located high above the East Looe river in lovely surroundings where a great team of very friendly and helpful staff - particularly the wonderful Michelle on Reception and Martin who was remarkably attentive - made our visit extra memorable. Fantastic food, beautifully presented; lovely views from a pretty terrace; 3 different sitting areas in which guests are... More

Stayed over the weekend. Good service and very friendly staff but priced above its level. Around a 10 minute walk into town was no problem for us but would be for older guests. Breakfast was fine and as expected. Pool was out of use but the fitness room cum sauna was nice. Overall feeling a little loose around the edges... More
