Good Hotel Guide Review

‘We have stayed at this hotel for many years; it is still brilliant.’ High praise in 2019 for Hazel Billington and Ross Lewin’s ‘small, beautiful’ hotel, between the historic fishing ports of Looe and Polperro. Hazel is a ‘fantastic hostess, friendly and helpful’. Alongside three ‘comfortable, spacious’ main house rooms, there are four larger, ‘lovely, clean’ garden rooms with a private balcony or a patio, offering ‘fantastic’ views of rolling Cornish countryside or of the hotel’s four acres of tranquil gardens. All have harmonious neutral and earthy hues. Ross, an ‘excellent chef’, produces ‘first-class’ dishes exploiting ‘the finest’ Cornish ingredients. A daily-changing dinner menu, largely dictated by the sea’s fresh bounty, is ‘superb, especially the fish’, perhaps Looe day-boat lemon sole, crushed new potatoes, chives, garam oil. It comes with a ‘good wine list’ and ‘lovely puddings’. The ‘excellent breakfast’ garners approbation in equal measure, ‘especially the local sausages and bacon’. Readers invariably mention how ‘very welcome’ they always feel here. Many share the view that they would ‘never stay anywhere else in Cornwall’. (Ann Simons, YW, and others)
