The hotel was outstanding. Food lovely and the rooms spotless. Bed very comfortable with everything you could want. Balcony bar was really pretty overlooking the river all lit up with lights and boats. Can't wait to go back

My wife and I visited this hotel in the last week of January 2016 and stayed for two nights. I must say, everything about this hotel is superb. We arrived early and were met by the most helpful receptionist who took our bags and arranged for them to be taken to our room when it was ready. Our room (no... More

We had a meal at this hotel, a carvery which was excellant. Two types of meat and all the veg you can eat. Also on some nights they have entertainment and happy hours. The night we were there we had both. It was really good, but you would need to check first before you go.

Hotel is in a great location, clean and tidy and room was plenty big enough, nice shower too, when we visit looe again we will be staying here won't look at any others hotels. Portbyhan is the one for us. Breakfast is buffet style but was great quality we both enjoyed it.

This was an excellent themed break "Tinsel and Turkey". The staff are very good and it's obvious they are all very proud of their hotel. The hotel is clean and comfortable, we had a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the quay. The food is it's usual fine standard. We will be going back very soon.

Although we did'nt stay here we have used the restaurant and Bistro facilities for both club events as well as meals with family and friends. The management and team provide outstanding service. The quality and value for money of the food cannot be beaten.

We visited the Portbyhan hotel for the first time at 'Twixtmas' and had the most wonderful time with friends. The hotel has been recently refurbished to a high standard with a beautiful bar and restaurant with terrific views across the estuary. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We spent a very enjoyable Christmas (23rd - 27th Dec) at the Portbyhan hotel with Edwards Coaches (the owners). Our room had a balcony with large windows which provided a panoramic view of the river, the harbour and West Looe. It was a very comfortable family room with en-suite facilities. Everything was spotlessly clean. It is a relatively small hotel... More
