My wife and I stayed for a short break to celebrate our wedding anniversary and to unwind after a hectic period of work.
The location is idyllic and far from the madding crowd, stunning cliff top walks and scenery, and even though the hotel had been battered by the storms the previous days, resulting in the loss of the lower terrace it was service as usual.
One cannot praise the staff enough for their attention to detail, and the little touches such as mini hot water bottles, hot chocolate and marsh mellows magically appearing in the bedroom whilst taking dinner are unexpected nice touches.
Our room was just across the slipway in the cottage and was excellently fitted out, very clean and cosy.
The large open fire was a magnet to crash in front of and relax with a cream tea which we could not resist.
We ate in the restaurant on the first night and although the menu appeared limited (possibly due to the storms) it offered what could be termed as fine dining. The presentation was like a painting on a plate and texture and flavours were fine, it was just a shame that there wasn't a little more of it having worked up a hearty appetite walking on the coastal path walk.
Breakfast was great, good selection everything and the "Cornish Breakfast" was just what one needed to set you up for a day's exploring the Cornish coast.
Thank you to all of the staff for making our stay such a treat and for making us so welcome.
I would recommend the Lugger Hotel to any one as it is the perfect hideaway offering total relaxation in a very pretty smugglers cove.
