These cottages have now all been bought by private owners. Away from the hands of the asset stripping company they are now being bought back to 4 star standard. Its a beautiful location. By the way, the hotel is no longer a hotel. We stayed at Little Larnick which we found on cottages4you.

I have stayed here in the past (both in the hotel and the grounds whcih were converted into cottages) and thoroughly enjoyed it. It seems that the hotel has had a troubled year, all the staff were let go which is sad. I wanted to book for this year but was told the hotel has now closed until further notice... More

I had family coming over and I wanted to spend some quality time with them and show them Cornwall. It was difficult to find room big enough for 5 adults as I tried to avoid booking 3 rooms separately. This place was just perfect for us. We booked the family suite at the top of the Barclay House Hotel facing... More

I had booked two months in advance to stay in a cottage with my partner and two children, only to find that when we arrived, Barclay House was closed and had been sold/under new management and being refurbished. No one was on the building for us to check in. I had booked via Expedia.com and spent the best part of... More

Great location for sightseeing and walking into town but on a steep hill so people unsteady on their feet may require a taxi. Lovely food lots of choice at breakfast and friendly attentative staff. Hotel decor a bit outdated but looking at more recent visitors comments this may be something that is being addressed. Perfect for a romantic weekend away!... More

I pre-ordered afternoon tea that was freshly prepared the day of arrival (compliments to the chef). The menu was locally sourced and delicious,breakfast the next morning was cooked to... More

Just wanted to let everyone know that this hotel went into receivership in June of this year, previously owned by the Brooks. They continue to take bookings and do not offer this information when you book, the cottages are also for sale and this can be confirmed with the local estate agents in Looe. They are happy to take bookings... More

We recently rented a Barclay house 1 bedroom cottage for a relaxing evening away. The cottage certainly did not disappoint. Our lovely cottage was set over four floors and was equipped with everything you could need for your stay(dishwasher,freezer,washing machine,even Scrabble). The bathroom was complete with a spa bath and a balcony from the bedroom provided a perfect view of... More

Just stayed for one night during the Looe music festival. The staff are fantastic and the views from our 'garden view' Room over the estuary and gardens were glorious. The decor is a little dated and the bathroom needs attention But the room was comfortable and we had a good nights sleep. The Cornish breakfast was fantastic. Will certainly stay... More

Cannot fault our stay at Barclay house for the Looe music festival. Room was great. Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice. The staff was very polite and friendly and, made our visit welcoming. The only downside which shouldn't put you off is the short walk to the main road. Which doesn't have much of a pavement and can be... More
