Recently stayed for two-nights in Looe at The Old Malt House and were very pleased with our choice. It's perfectly positioned for the centre of Looe without being on the main stretch. The room was very comfortable, extremely clean and all that we needed, making us feel immediately welcome and 'at home'. The breakfast room was beautiful and again, spotlessly...

This was my second stay, and hopefully not my last. Not only is The Old Malt House immaculately clean, and the breakfast absolutely delicious, but Bob & Deb are the sweetest people you could ever meet.

Really lovely b&b. Peaceful and great location. The owners are really nice and helpful. Breakfast was great every morning. Really glad I read through the reviews and picked this one. Walking distance into Looe is only a few minutes. Parking available here at the b&b. Bed is very comfortable. Would recommend staying here!!

We had 4 days at this lovely B&B. It was lovely and clean and the food was excellent. Bob & Debs were great full of fun and laughter. We are all ready thinking of our next stay. There are some lovely restaurants over in East Looe, but you need to book if you stay in the busy season.
