A lot of money seems to have been spent on a big refurbishment and it is worth it. Live locally so can't speak for the accommodation side of things but the bar and eating areas are lovely. Great for lunch especially on the top terrace on a sunny day. Friendly staff and menu is well priced. The only thing I... More

My husband and I thought the hotel was of a high standard, we had a lovely room which overlooked looe harbour, perfect! Looe town is within walking distance from the hotel. Staff were very pleasant, it was a most enjoyable stay, we will certainly be booking to stay here again ⭐️

Being a quaint Cornish port surrounded by tradition of fishing and village life, The Portbyhan Hotel brings a new aspect to the area. The hotel has been recently refurbished and offers a first class service, in particular for larger groups of people. There are bars, a brasserie and restaurant all bright and airy and the staff are fantastic! We had... More

We didnt stay at Portbyhan Hotel during our recent visit to Looe but spent three evenings there. Two pleasant evenings were spent in the bar where they had decent entertainment. They were typical pub type singers but good fun. Later in the week we visited the restaurant. We hadn't booked but the Manager (who I think was called Jack) couldn't... More

Room 112 has a toilet opposite which is situated next to the bar area(top floor).It is also adjacent to a store area used by the cleaning/Housekeeping staff and you can hear every word including all the moans and groans...

We stayed in room 314 with a huge double bed and "half a bunk" for our son. Staff sorted our only problem (shaver socket) within half an hour, coming up with a temporary fix. All the staff seemed pleased to be at work and really worked as a team. Apart from breakfast we ate most evenings at the hotel. The... More

We loved this hotel, friendly, well decorated, comfortable, good food and most importantly in an amazing position in West Looe overlooking the estuary towards East Looe where the main town and restaurants are located. Would not hesitate to visit again and would highly recommend this hotel.
