Amazing location and amazing staff! I was there during a holiday to explore Cornwall! I've decided to use the Lugger as base to go around but it is much more suggested to stay in place because all the country side around is amazing!

Dear Jeannie, Thank you for writing this review and I am so sorry about the lift problem which as mentioned was the first time I had experienced this problem.

The hotel location is amazing right on the harbourside with the restaurant enjoying direct sea views. Make you sure you visit the nearby Ship pub for a traditional pint of real ale. A...

This was the first time that we have ever stayed in a Hotel over Christmas.

The hotel occupies a prominent position perched on the edge of the fishing boat landing ramp, surrounded by lobster pots and with room views over the Portloe water front. The best part is the hotels...
