Good Hotel Guide Review
Take in the panorama over tea and home-made cake in the garden room whatever time you arrive: from sunrise to sunset, the views at this ‘ideally located’ seafront B&B are spectacular. Rosie and David Reeve are the ‘superb’ hosts. Individually decorated, the ‘spotlessly clean’ bedrooms draw the view inside with a beachy palette (sea blue, sandstone, sunset orange), cushioned handmade bamboo chairs, original seascapes. Three bedrooms are sea-facing; two have garden access. Ground-floor Whitsand has bay windows with sea views, a furnished patio. All rooms have an en suite bathroom; tea- and coffee-making facilities, a fridge with fresh milk, bottled Cornish water ‘regularly replenished’. Breakfast is ‘delightful’: pick and mix from a comprehensive buffet of fresh fruit, home-made muffins and yogurt; from the kitchen, choose French toast, smoked salmon or Cornish sausages. Ask for recommended restaurants in nearby Looe; the Reeves also have advice to share on energetic day-trips to Polperro (the South West Coastal Path runs past the front gate). Beachcombers should take the steps down to the sandy beach to investigate the rock pools. More reports, please.
