Romantic escapePosted Sep 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great location, small but luxurious rooms. Fantastic service and great quality dining. Parking adequate and walks along coast second to none on coastal paths. Just right distance to have lunch in far off hotels and get back in 5 hours of walking. Downside was carpet stains in our room and marks on the material headboard of bed which could have been easily professionally cleaned given the cost of the stay. Best value were the meals which at £60 extra per couple rivaled prime dining nights out in Michelin star locatons. Do not eat anywhere else whilst staying there.

A sweet hotel in a beautiful settingPosted Sep 2, 2013
Pros: The staff; the peaceful, authentic Cornish setting
Cons: We were a little disappointed with the food, but it was still very good
Location: A great location from which to explore Cornwall. We went to the Minack Theatre, Padstow, St Ives, Jamie Oliver's 15 - all within easy driving distance
The Lugger is a sweet hotel in a beautiful setting. The food is very good, but not first class (but it doesn't claim to be). The atmosphere is peaceful, relaxed and very welcoming. Rooms are tastefully furnished and very comfortable. Extra touches like cake left in your room in the afternoon, hot chocolate with marshmallows, a weather forecast, and an amusing story to greet you when you return from dinner, add to the feeling that you are a welcome guest. The staff are amazing - nothing is too much trouble. If you are expecting a 5 star hotel you will be disappointed, but if you are expecting a warm, welcoming, Cornish hideaway, you will be delighted.

romantic getawayPosted Jul 23, 2013
wonderful location and of course wonderful weather - the recent heatwave helped to make it perfect. To sit outside with a glass of wine and watch the boats in the harbour was superb. Portloe is very tiny but very pretty and peaceful. It is also beautifully kept - every house immaculate.

Lovely treat for our wedding anniversaryPosted Jul 3, 2013
Pros: Felt completely tucked away from every day rat race.
Cons: Made to feel bad for choosing to eat at the village pub on the second evening.
We visited for our 10th wedding anniversary, and what a treat it was. The hotel is in a lovely position, directly on the slipway, in a small village. Our room was in a separate building at the back of the main hotel, simply but tastefully decorated, plenty of room, with a comfortable king size bed, bowl of fruit, jar of boiled sweets, fresh milk and bottled water in the fridge and some shortbread biscuits. The bathroom was big, with a huge bath, which filled quickly with lots of (very) hot water (much needed after a long day walking the coastal path) There is no phone signal in the village, however the hotel have free wifi available and they were also very good at putting our children through for our morning wake up call! We ate in the restaurant on the first night. The menu is not vast, but the food was good, if a little overpriced, but the view over the cove from the table was beautiful. At night, they have a turn down service, along with hot chocolate and marshmallows, the following day's weather forecast and a joke! The breakfast consists of a nice but simple continental selection and a cooked to order menu which I didn't try. Unfortunately on our second day, they were unable to offer cooked breakfast, and the management didn't seem to be around to appease or offer apologies (probably trying to sort the kitchen issue!) As we left, we were given bottled water and boiled sweets for the journey home. The staff were all very attentive and friendly, sad to leave!

Romantic and tucked away.Posted Oct 22, 2012
Pros: The staff are super friendly.
Cons: Small thing but not enough sockets in the room. Had to unplug the fridge to plug in the hair dryer.
Location: Tucked away in a beautiful location. Great coastal walk adjacent to the hotel. Probably not good if limited mobility.
The hotel is in a very beautiful location for a real getaway break. We were given an amazing room with sea view with a king size bed. After checking in we went out for dinner with friends and when we returned to our room, the bed was turned down, hot water bottles slipped between the sheets and hot chocolate and marshmallows were waiting for us. What a treat! The next day we went to the restaurant for breakfast after watching the fishing boats go out from our bedroom window. We had read on reviews that there was no hot breakfast. How wrong! We had delicious eggs benedict cooked to perfection. As we left, we were given bottled water and apples to keep us going on the journey home. We really felt looked after. The staff were really kind and thoughtful with a great sense of humour. We will definitely be returning soon. Just a note, there is no phone signal. Perfect!
