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.com
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.com
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

Nice quiet break

Posted Nov 13, 2014
Pros: Location, Location, Location
Cons: Bathrooms are looking a bit tired, clean but need TLC, may be due to the end of a busy season
Location: No 1 reason is peace and quiet to relax ! Walks, Visit Truro, Falmouth
We spent 3 very wet days at the Lugger, can't control the weather but this lovely hotel and staff made it an enjoyable stay ! Nothing was too much to ask for, well done !

Return to The Lugger after 30 years.

Posted Nov 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
Excellent from start to end. Food superb, so full from breakfast and dinner, had to avoid lunch, and just no room for a Cream Tea. After not getting to the Lugger for thirty odd years, it was better than the memories we had of the hotel. We will be back for more as soon as possible.
