Our 4th visit here, but a disappointment. Our room was a tiny cottage with a stunning view, however weather was awful and we were really cut off. Had to go out in blustery rain to get to Restauant.

What a beautiful location overlooking the Portloe harbour entrance. After a drive through some beautiful country side down narrow roads, it is a most welcoming location. Waves crashing on the rocks, staff made us feel right at home whilst we awaited our room as we arrived quite early. They made us a lovely pot of tea. We didn't have to...

Having come from two nights at Rick Stein in Padstow where everything was exemplary (you just run out of superlatives) we had high hopes for The Lugger but these hopes were dashed. Better it were to advertise itself for what it is - a Cornish pub with a restaurant and rooms - rather than as a top end "boutique" hotel....
