Sunday lunch for 6 adults and a child. Good service. Carvery lunch, meat portion was more than generous. Help yourself vegetables hot and fresh. Banoffee dessert was just gorgeous. Very reasonably priced. All in all a really good lunch with great views of the harbour

We were lucky and got a basic room but with a great view of the harbour and river. The room was comfortable but very small and cramped and the bathroom was as well. The shower cubicle must have been the smallest one on the market but it was all spotlessly clean and the tea and coffee making tray even had...

Stayed as part of a 5 day Edwards Coach Holiday. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. The food was mostly very good and drinks at a reasonable price. Our room ( 108, with balcony ) faced the river with views towards the harbour mouth. The room is small but almost perfectly formed ! Comfy bed, good wifi, shower worked well...

Took the family down for Sunday carvery. Food was very tasty and piping hot. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Their is a full length glass window , so you can look out over harbour. Found the price to be excellent value for money considering the modern plush restaurant and view and excellent food.

Hotel number 2 of our west country road trip. Reception was friendly and efficient. Our superior room was superb with a private balcony overlooking the quayside. Bar prices reasonable but restaurant menu a little limited and ordinary. Very nice for what it was none the less. Very comfortable room.

On arrival at the hotel we were welcomed with tea,coffee and biscuits. The staff were extremely friendly throughout our stay. Our room,although small,was adequate for our needs and we had a 'walk in' shower,as requested.Everything was clean with a change of towels after two days. The food was excellent,(I put 5 pounds on in five days).So back to serious workouts...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Portbyhan Hotel is located quayside in the heart of the beautiful Cornish fishing town of West Looe. West Looe is still a functioning fishing town and the hotel's location provides guests with great views of 'hustle and bustle' going on every day in the picturesque harbour. The family run hotel has a reputation for being one of the most popular hotels in Looe purely through recommendations by guests who have stayed in the hotel. All the guest bedrooms in the hotel are en-suite, clean and comfortable. All rooms come with all the modern facilities guests expect such as Colour TV and hair dryer. Many bedrooms have fantastic views of the harbour and/or town. Our Riverside Restaurant and The Portside Brasserie are ideally situated to provide fantastic views across the quayside both offering great locally sourced fresh food and unbeatable service. The hotel has a well-stocked bar so guests can enjoy a cold beer, Cornish Cider, glass of wine or local soft drinks from Cornish Orchards. There is a lot to offer within walking distance including the bus stop, train station, local gift shops, 5 minute walk to 3 beaches, next to the ferry going to East Looe, Bowling club and tennis courts, and just outside our front door we have the biggest swimming pool stretching right around the country and its free! Please note: Pets are not permitted to stay at this hotel. ... more   less
