Myself and some freinds stayed for 4 nights. It is a very nice Guesthouse with clean and tidy rooms. The staff are excellent, and the breakfast is hugh. Will stay here again!

Stayed here for 2 Nights Thurs/Fri. We chose Looe as a base to go to Daughters Passing out Parade at HMS Raliegh which was about 25min drive away. Looe is a lovely place to vist, As we didnt have much time to have a good look around or go to other places we are hoping to vist again maybe next year.
We did eat at Smugglers Cott both nights which we would recommend very nice seaford dishes. Book in advance got very busy especailly on the Friday Night. Go to there website to look at Menu.

We booked to stay here one night in April for our 22nd Wedding Aniversary - from the outside it looks a little tired and shabby and as other reviewers say there are a lot of steep steps upto the guest house and up to the rooms (we stayed in room 8) However the staff especially the owner are really friendly and welcoming. He advised us where to eat and we had a lovely meal that was worth every penny in the Smugglers Cot - Breakfast was really nice and filling and you felt that nothing was too much trouble here. A nice spacious room with fairly comfortable beds. If I was going to stay in Looe again then I would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: our room was quiet however being a smoker right at the top was a pain!!

I can across this guest house as a last minute booking on Travel Republic for a good price.

I wasn't disappointed. The Guest House has an ideal location in Looe between the train station (5 minutes slow walk away ) and the town centre. It is situated (as the name suggests) right on the bridge that connects the two sides of the town of Looe.

Upon my arrival the host, Sammy, was extremely welcoming and offered to take my bag up to the room. I was shown a couple of different rooms and went for Room 7 on the top floor. I was settled in and invited to have a tea or coffe by Sammy which I thought was a nice touch.

The room itself was very clean, had a nice little freeview flatscreen TV, modern wardrobe, nicely sized and comfortable bed, nice furnishings and a wet room style shower / toilet. The view over the bridge into town was superb.

There were basic tea / coffee making facilities in the room, but these were plentiful.

I had a very good nights sleep - the town seems to "wake up" slightly later than the rest of the world so it was nice and quiet in the morning.

Breakfast comprised of cereal / juice to start and then I plumped for the full english - which was freshly cooked and of a very decent size. I was offered more tea / coffee and toast but had to refuse because the breakfast was so large it filled me up!

All in all it was a really pleasent last minute stay in a town that is absolutely delightful. But...... what it isn't is a five star hotel, but then you certainly aren't paying five star money for it. It does look a little tired from the outside and, yes, you can pick out the odd small bit that could do with a little redecorating if you look really really hard.

However, if you are looking for a small, friendly, comfortable guest house with an excellent location, nice atmosphere, a good hearty breakfast and something that is easy on the wallet whilst not compromising on quality then you will have it at the Bridgeside Guest House - enjoy your stay there!

Room Tip: If you want a good view, go for a room at the front of the Guest House

We stayed for 2 nights as part of a short break around Devon and Cornwall. Our room (large family room at front of building) had fantastic views over the river and was well located for all Looe has to offer. Room was very spacious but bathroom was a little small - but how much time do you spend in there?! A little tired looking in places but clean and welcoming with good breakfast.

We came across the Bridgeside and glad we did.
Perfect location and very friendly.
Sammy immediately offered to show us the rooms, always a good sign of nothing to hide!
We decided on a lovely, large front room overlooking the bridge, with an en suite.
After saying yes, tea and biscuits appeared outside on the patio for us in the glorious sunshine.

As we sat taking in the view, Sammy told us what there was to see and where to eat etc (at our request), and is very knowledgeable about the area.

Breakfast was very tasty and the staff very friendly.

Definitely recommend this place to anyone

The guest house is set in a good location, for the centre of Looe and offers basic friendly accommodation.
There are a number of steep stairs to climb to gain entry to the reception.
We stayed in a room at the back which was ok but despite the netting, there are a lot of pigeons out there doing what pigeons do best!!
Some guests commented that the rooms at the front didn't fair much better because they were noisy too.
The pictures of the rooms on the website are duplicated, and there is no picture for one of the rooms, so its best to ask when you book. I would also reccommend contacting direct if yuo are going to book because who can ask for a certain room. If you book online it is a bit hit and miss.
There was plenty of choice for breakfast, which was served, in a fashion, very promptly. We did feel that it may have been pre-cooked and kept warm at times because the bacon was hard.
We had a nice break in Looe and all at the Bridgeside did make us feel very welcome.

Room Tip: I would say ask for one at the front but we did hear other guests say that they were noisy.
