Just returned from a wonderful weekend after staying at the Old Malt House, April 2016. On our arrival we were welcomed so warmly by Deb and Bob, we knew instantly we had made an excellent choice. Our room was ideal, warm, private, and spotlessly clean. On the morning of our first breakfast we went downstairs into the breakfast room and...

Husband and I stayed for two nights last weekend, and were really glad we'd booked here. Our room was immaculately clean, cosy and nicely decorated, with all mod cons. Breakfast was excellent, and our hosts really made us feel at home. The B&B is in a quiet location, so we got a good night's sleep; but is an easy walk...

Myself and my boyfriend stayed at the Old Malt House in February 2016, we were made very welcome by the hosts. The room was immaculate! Breakfast was great, and the location was really lovely too! The rooms weren't large, however the furnishing were very tasteful and overall was really cosy- so not a problem at all! Great for a short...

Stayed here last night for a short Valentines get away. They both very kindly went out of their way to help my boyfriend arrange a Valentines surprise for me which was absolutely lovely of them. The whole place is immaculate and kept to an amazing standard, rooms are warm and cosy, with crisp clean sheets and fluffy towels, tea and...

I stayed at the Old Malt House during early February, whilst walking parts of the coastal path. This is a very old house, with lots of character, in a very old part of Looe. As such one has to appreciate that, you are not going to get hotel type rooms. However, my room was more than comfortable, and always nice...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in early November 2015. The owners Bob and Deb gave us a warm welcome and took us to our room, which was warm neat and tidy. Nothing was too much trouble for them to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. Highly recommended.

My wife and I chose the Old Malt House as a place to stay whilst meeting up with some old friends in Looe. We arrived a little early, but found a lovely warm welcome from Debs and Bob. It's a real gem, and run by a couple that clearly want to do all they can to make your stay a...

Just returned from a week driving round Cornwall and staying in several B&Bs. This was by far our favourite. The owners, Deb and Bob, welcomed us with open arms and made sure our stay was perfect. The rooms are gorgeous, great attention to detail and very comfortable. We were able to come and go as we please. It's an ideal...

This has been our third visit to Looe and to the Old Malt House. On our last visit Bob and Deb had recently taken over the B&B and they have made many changes to the decor in the intervening months - all for the better. The rooms were comfortable and beautifully clean. Both Bob and Deb are great hosts, a...
