“Truly Wonderful”
Reviewed December 30, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

My family and I stayed at the Old Museum in Looe for the Christmas week. The booking process and straight-forward communication led me to believe the property would similarly perfect, which it was.

Situated in a beautiful back street, just a stones throw from the beach, the quay, and the High Street, the location was ideal.

The property itself was presented to a high standard, with quality yet homely fixtures and fittings. It felt like a home as soon as we arrived.

All the usual creature comforts were on hand; hot shower, nice bath, extremely comfortable lounge, excellent kitchen facilities, and cosy bedrooms with high quality furniture and linen.

Car parking was provided which was a 20 second walk from the property and from what we saw in Looe, this was a real luxury.

We rated this to be one of best family holidays to date, and we felt that The Old Museum was the deciding factor in that.

“Brilliant place to stay - once you have braved Looe traffic.”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We were a family of 2 grandparents, daughter and granddaughter. The apartment was extremely well appointed and comfortable, with 1 double bedroom, 1 single and an enormous convertible sofa bed. The harbour and super sandy beach were less than 2 minutes away. Good crabbing places on quay. The designated parking space was also very close and essential. Looe shops were just around the corner and the streets were very quaint and busy.

Places we recommend: excellent cream teas at Daisy's, a very family friendly cafe; a lovely evening meal at The Old Sail Loft, full of atmosphere; The Catch for fish and chips; ice creams in every flavour, plus enormous Mr Whippy's with flake at the shop just round the corner from the apartment.

Visits to Polperro, very smugglerish with lots of charming little coves; Jamaica Inn on Bodmin Moor; Fowey, beautiful bay with good bus and lovely sea trips, go early as parking can be difficult.

Liked best: Being so central with car park close by.
Liked least: Braving Looe pedestrians and traffic in narrow streets when going to apartment for the first time.

Thank you for your review.
Traffic is a problem in season throughout Cornwall. Almost all the towns and villages are difficult to drive through. However, once you have parked up you don't have to use your car at all. Polperro is well worth a visit. You can do this by boat, walking or bus. Also the tiny train will take you to Liskerd for onward connections to most other places in Cornwall.

“Beautiful place to stay right in the heart of Looe”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Our family spent a week in this lovely accommodation in a glorious week in June. My 3 year old son was comfy sleeping in the single room and we shared the double with our 8month old in his travel cot. The apartment is located very close to the beach and the ice cream shops. As others have said, the facilities are of a high standard. There is stone flooring throughout which meant being careful the baby didn't topple over too much, but we got in to the habit of leaving cushions behind him! Being so close to the town with all it's lovely shops and cafes and the beach (good for sandcastles and rock pools) meant we hardly used the car, although having the parking space was a big plus. The only downside is that being tucked away in a quaint little street, you can't see much of the sky to judge the weather but you only have to step a few yards from the front door to admire the lovely views across the beach or down to the river and harbour. The owner is very friendly to deal with and over all I would certainly recommend a stay here.

These are fishermen cottages and fishing net store originally. Like fishermen all over the world they have no interest in looking at the sea or weather when they are at home. Interestingly Looe is one of the few towns in the country that has actually been designed before it was built on a sand split in the fifteenth century. This is the reason that we have what are called locally as the “Back Streets”.
So glad you enjoyed your stay and I do hope we will see you again soon.

“brilliant”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Old Museum & what a great apartment. Located just across the road from the beautiful beach & in the heart of Looe. The apartment was clean, comfortable and furnished to the highest standards. The bathroom was luxurious with a full length bath and a separate walk in shower. From the bedrooms to the lounge/kitchen everything has been thought of. With parking at a premium in Looe what a bonus to have our own parking space.
Can't wait to get there again!
