Just returned from a long week-end in Looe and stayed at The Gulls. This small place has to be one of the most friendly and enjoyable stays we have had in some time. Lorraine and Elsie run the establishment with great flair and from the moment we walked through the door it was a joy to be there. We stayed... More

It sits low on a cliff overlooking the outlet of the west side of the River Looe, enabling visitors to look down on the beach and both sides of the town and harbour from their bedroom windows. Nature provides spectacular sights of the sea, sky... More

When we arrived Lorraine bought coffee and some of her mums home made cake to our room, which was amazing but also such a lovely start to our holiday. We had some nice chats and laughs with them.

We chose The Gulls as we were visiting our daughter who has moved to Cornwall recently, and we wanted to bring our dog. We found few places available in Looe that were dog friendly, hence the choice. However, it is extremely expensive for the quality of the hotel. The wallpaper was peeling off the wall, there was very basic supplies... More

We spent 2 nights with my family in Nelson, Bligh and Jellicoe. Rooms were clean and views absolutely best we have ever seen from hotel window. Breakfast was good. No problems with parking, 'cause we already knew it wouldn't be next to Gulls. Thanks Lorraine !

We stayed in the very comfortable family room which was perfectly adequate. The room was cleaned and restocked every day and breakfast was really nice too. Lorraine and Elsie are fantastic hosts and we all really enjoyed chatting with them and having a laugh or two. The views are magnificent and parking was easy. If you don't fancy walking down...
