The breakfast room wasn't open at the times we were told. Only two choices for breakfast! I won't be recommending or revisiting... More

The hosts friendly and helpful, our double bedroom cosy and clean ( as was the rest of the complex), breakfast serves delicious and generous, our bedroom overlooked a spacious and picturesque park. Great central location to town centre. Would definitely stay there again!

We booked a room here and tried our very best to get there in time. But how could we know that the ferry from Torpoint was on strike that very day? On top of that my phone was out of charge, so I could not call Tusker Lodge and tell them. I call that force majeure. But there was nothing... More
