The hotel is set in a quintessential Cornish fishing village and could not be closer to the sea. We were in The Look Out which is a small room separate from the main hotel but with the most amazing views from two windows. We could even see the sea from the bed ! Although small, the bed linen was fabulous...

We stayed two nights over Easter. Beautiful setting and a small intimate hotel with amazing staff. Lovely room and nice touches such as hot chocolate making kit and cakes in room. Dinner in both nights excellent. Was sad to leave such magical place

We were lucky to experience some lovely early spring weather for our three night break in deepest southern Cornwall. The friendly welcome, well appointed room, and overall ambiance were just right. The early morning sun in the breakfast room was a delight, and the available choices good, with no surcharges, quite right too. Service at breakfast was haphazard, and I...

Lovely cosy hotel set in a tranquil cove. Made to feel very welcome on arrival and shown to a pretty, clean and well furnished room. Plenty of nice touches during our stay, hot chocolate at night in the room, wellies if you needed them, water and sweets for the journey home. We loved the menu, a credit to the chef...

Great location and if you stay in the boathouse (room 101 is the best with its lovely private terrace ) then you will find a small but well equipped room. Great shower nice toiletries home baked cookies etc all wonderful But the bar and restaurant lets it down.. dinner is a menu for the chef rather than the clientele. Yes...

I do hope you will return at some later date and hopefully we can redeem ourselves with some...

Beautifully decorated and very comfortable, huge bed with cotton sheets. Bathroom not huge with in bath shower - shower is great! Little touches of hot chocolate and marshmallows at...

A special place for me to revisit after completing the South West Coast Path last year. The hotel staff were kind to a very tired walker, me! The hotel, lounge, outside terraces and dining areas are cosy, tastefully decorated with very attentive and obliging staff. Typical Cornish buildings, watch you head! Our sea view room was spacious, bed was very...

We had a recent 3 night stay at The Lugger, Portloe and although we had a great time due to location and beautiful weather, we left a little disappointed... Let's start with the positives: - Amazing location, and great access to the coast path - Lovely little touches such as cakes to greet you after a long day of walking...
