This was an excellent place for lunch with lovely staff and beautiful sorroundings. This is one of my favourite places in Cornwall. Excellent fish dishes.The grounds are all well kept and plenty of space to sit out

A narrow lane down towards the scenic beach at Talland Bay leads to the delightful Talland Bay Hotel. Packed with quirky pictures and sculpture - and pleasant gardens - it's a great place to enjoy a cream tea in the sunshine. The staff are friendly and helpful.

We weren't staying at the hotel but popped in one evening for dinner with friends. We were warmly welcomed and seated for pre-dinner drinks. I've never seen such a choice of gins on offer under one roof - very impressive. The dinners selected ranged through skate wings, plaice, chicken and kleftico and all were, without exception, delicious. The wine selected... More

I've visited this hotel a few times over the years. This visit was just as enjoyable as all the others. On arrival you immediately feel at home, and the quality of food provided means you don't need to leave the hotel and can just spend your time enjoying the solitude and fantastic scenery. The welcome you receive from all staff... More

We have just spent a few days here at the Talland Bay Hotel. This delightful white hotel on the Cornish coast is in an unsurpassable position. The views are breathtaking and the gardens well kept, and whimsical. The welcome we received from the young lady on duty was appreciated. She took time out to give us an overview of the... More

It was wonderful to arrive back here after a few years. Brilliant location and the restaurant has even got better! Would recommend the beetroot pie, venison and hake from this morning's fish market in Looe. We just loved it!!!

Didn't stay at the hotel over night but went to the restaurant when family came to visit. The service and meal were very good. We were greater by pleasant staff and enjoyed a pre dinner drink in the lounge before being taken into the dinning area. The view of the grounds were lovely, just a shame it was a wet... More

This hotel must have one of the best sites on the southern Cornish coast and the owners are making best use of it. Our seaview room (thanks for the upgrade) was charming - excellent décor & amenities, but most of all because of the view over the bay in the morning and evening sunlight. We guess someone has quirky tastes... More

We visited Talland Bay Hotel in January, this was our third visit and it was as good as ever. Superb service, delicious food and beautiful, quirky accommodation. Spotlessly clean. Very welcoming and dog friendly too. Yet again thanks for a wonderful stay to Michael, Vanessa and all the staff.

There is something magical about this place - but it's hard to say exactly what it is. I guess because it is simply magical in every way. It's unusual, personal, weird, and it feels like someone's home. I especially liked the grandfather clock in the corridor and friendly staff. And if you like hiking, you'll feel completely spoilt - the... More
