We were initially booked to stay in June for husband's birthday but had to defer because of initial national lockdown. We were greeted by a very cheerful Martin who showed us to our room and explained the Covid rules to us which were easy to understand. Throughout our stay we were made to feel very welcome and the breakfast was divine and beautifully serviced. We also had evening meals and we can especially recommend the beef stew and Gill's Apple Crumble from their very own apple tree. Thank you for allowing us to take some apples away with us. The hotel was extremely clean and the room had all the amenities needed to make this a very enjoyable stay. Thank you Gill and Martin for making our stay very enjoyable. We hope to be back some time in the near future.

Excellent choice of breakfast served by the host. Under difficult times reference Covid the changes that were implemented were explained thoroughly by the owners. Which made it a safe place to stay. With this in mind would have no issues recommending this property to others and returning ourselves in the future.

We stayed here for a sneaky weekend away for our wedding anniversary. Gill and Martin were both welcoming, friendly and genuinely caring. Our room was cosy, well-stocked and the beds were soooooooo comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble at all. Had some great chats with Gill over breakfast 😍 would highly recommend and will definitely be going again. Thanks for a truly relaxing weekend before the madness descends 🤣👌😘

We felt so welcomed by the staff especially Lydia. The staff were so on the ball with all the covid restrictions and safety. We felt safe and welcomed. The rooms are lovely, clean and the breakfasts were amazing. We stayed 5 nights with our 7yr daughter and all our needs were attended to.

Thank you Gill and Martin for a very enjoyable stay. We found all staff very helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were fantastic and really set us up for the day. The room was spacious clean and plenty of coffee and tea along with the biscuits and water. We enjoyed relaxing in your beautiful garden. We were sad to have to go back home. We will come again. For anyone thinking of staying here, “Book it “ you will love it. It’s so close to Looe. The bus stops at the hotel and the train station is a short walk down the road
