Stayed here for a couple nights in a standard room, which was lovely, it was a good size with a queen sized bed, tea & coffee and all toiletries, and best of all we had a little view of the sea! (room 306) We booked bed and breakfast and ate in the dining room both mornings, I had the full...

We stayed 4 nights in a deluxe room with amazing views of the harbour. Room 103 is across the boat slipway and not in the hotel building. Although the path needs flat heeled shoes, staff on reception were most accommodating in looking after mine as I changed into high heeled sandals each night! Breakfasts were very good with lots of...

This is a wonderful hotel in a secluded Cornish fishing port. The ambiance is good, the rooms tastefully furnished and the meals of a very high standard. I thoroughly recommend it and look forward to returning there. I was particularly taken with the fine dining which utilises locally caught sea food.

What a lovely peaceful hotel set in a pretty little Cornish village, which also has a great pub. We were upgraded and had a room with a little patio which had the full afternoon sun and a wonderful view over the little harbour.

If you are looking for a hotel right by the sea look no further – The Lugger is perched on the the very edge of the rocks above the slipway in Portloe. The final 1.1 miles of road into Portloe is not for the faint hearted or bad drivers. There is barely room for one car and if another car...
