This hotel is situated in a lovely little spot next to the sea and cliffs. It's quite dramatic and perfect for walks, rambles etc so if that's not your thing then probably should go elsewhere. Working fisherman are still there and its a treat watching them while eating your breakfast (if you time it right). The hotel itself is split...

Steep narrow roads lead down to a haven of peace and tranquillity. The rooms while not huge- we had a deluxe- are very clean and comfortable and have welcome extras eg fruit and sweets. There are also surprises like hot water bottles in the beds on returning at night and hot chocolate with marshmallows . The welcome is good and...

We stayed for one night romantic break. Such a peaceful place. The hotel was fully booked however I didn't notice. The hotel is just stunning, Great views amazing food, spent the evening star gazing on the balcony. The hotel have lots of little extras that just made our stay perfect. Will definitely stay again! Highly recommend.

Stayed here with my partner to celebrate our anniversary. It was better than we could have hoped, very romantic: amazing location with beautiful sea views (our room didn't have a sea view, but really didn't mind - could still hear the waves crashing against the rocks!). Lovely room - very comfortable bed, very clean, tastefully decorated throughout and the staff...

Big, clean, comfy double room (number 202), and a sea view like no other. Nice informal atmosphere, very good food at dinner, nice breakfasts, efficient and friendly staff. Ideal for a short stay as any longer than 2 nights might overdo the magic for some. Cons - rather ambitious pricing, and, being slightly picky here, the plates could have been...

The hotel was incidental to our break but provided a homely mellow backdrop. We had a smallish but well equipped and comfy room with a view of the beach. We are in on all but one night but preferred to drink and carouse in the little pub nearby. My parents tried to warn me off this place because they had...

What a wonderful find. We stayed for 2 nights and were enchanted by this cosy little hotel nestling in its own Cornish cove. Our room was full of little extra touches which made us feel welcome and spoiled. The food was excellent and a big thank you to Daniel for looking after us in the restaurant and serving us drinks...

Simply a real get away on the coast....beautiful village, views....romantic setting...hotel itself beautify decorated and furnished....very relaxed atmosphere throughout, great fresh food....staff very pleasant and helpful...close enough to Eden Project and coastal walks...the only disadvantage for us is the fact that we live in Norwich, Norfolk otherwise we would be there every weekend to relax!!

The Lugger is set in a stunning location and if you don't live by the sea it must be incredible to visit. It's an old property with tons of character and on a clear night with the moon shining on the water you don't need too much imagination to "see" smugglers rowing into the cove. The food is good (although...
