Great staff, main hotel delightful but. ...

Posted May 21, 2015
Pros: The staff, the views and the food were great!
Cons: The bathroom (room 311) was very shabby - which was a shame..
Location: The location was what we had hoped for and as long as you had a car there was plenty to do nearby.
The staff were great and the main hotel part was delightful, however the rooms and especially the bathroom was a little 'tired'. The hotel position was just what we had hoped for and the food was fabulous.

LOVELY HOTEL, BEAUTIFUL SETTING

Posted Mar 27, 2015 on Hotels
Second stay at the wonderful hotel. Again, it is a gorgeous retreat in a wonderful part of the world. We had the same room in the Boathouse and the weather was so good that we ate breakfast on the terrace in the sun on the one morning despite being only March. Only issue this time was that there was no hot water in the morning in the shower. This being a fairly basic requirement for a hotel is not something you would expect for the cost of the room here. I did report this and the Manager explained that it doesn't take long to warm up! Well, it took too long for us.Other than that, the menu is smallish and therefore it is disappointing when some of the dishes are then not available. However, the food is good and the service too. We were disturbed when workmen decided to do something to the water tank directly outside of the room at around midnight! They were talking and flashing torches directly into the room!! Hardly a good night's rest and goodness knows what they were doing at that time. I would stay again but not in that room which is a shame as it is a gorgeous room but no sun to the terrace so a bit wasted.

The Lugger Hotel

Excellent, very friendly staff, good quality food. Will definitely return. The only downside for a business trip was the almost total lack of mobile communication.

Room with a view

Charming hotel and very helpful and friendly staff. Our extremely comfortable room overlooked the little harbour and out to sea. Really good breakfast. A parting gift of bottled water and travel sweets was a nice touch and much appreciated.

A gem of a hotel with fab food and views

Posted Feb 6, 2015
Pros: The food, views and friendly atmosphere.
Cons: Internet access could be better and mobile reception didn't exist.
Location: Less than an hour from the Eden Project. Easy drive to St Ives. Several gardens within a hour's drive.
I stayed on my own for two nights and ate dinner there both evenings. The staff and guests were very friendly. The food was top notch - wide selection at breakfast including a range of cooked breakfasts and lots of lovely evening meals based on fresh local produce. The restaurant overlooks the sea and has wonderful views. A very good touring base. Tucked away but not too much.

Fantastic location for a romantic weekend

Posted Jan 11, 2015 on Hotels
The Lugger is beautiful hotel in a wonderful setting. Book at superior room with sea view and you will fall asleep with the waves lapping on the cove below your bed. The food is very good although it is quality not quantity here. The menu is not vast but the quality of the food is exceptional. Breakfasts are good, the poached eggs cooked to perfection and nothing is too much trouble. No mobile phone signal at all in any network, no wi-fi except in hotel lounge but the scenery and peace and quiet is wonderful.

Great Hotel

Posted Jan 5, 2015 on Hotels
The Lugger is a lovely hotel and ideally situated for a Cornish break with coastal walks on narrow coast paths emerging from both sides of the small fishing village of Portloe The rooms are well appointed and fairly standard in size and the top priced rooms with a sea view. The food is top end (and top price) with a good selection of wines You wont be disappointed with the quality but may leave your table still hungry This is a hotel and not a pub Dont expect to sit around the bar and meet locals for a chat If you want to do that the Ship up the road is perfect Also be aware that the hotel is DOG TOLERANT and not DOG FRIENDLY Dogs are only allowed in the room and nowhere else So if you expect to sit with your dog in the evening Dream on. This was nearly a deal breaker for us but our small Jack Russell was so tired after his long walks he didnt mind a sleep while we ate Overall lovely hotel and special treat
