Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I’ve only had the pleasure of staying here twice so far, but this is one of the best B&B in Looe. The first time was over the New Year unfortunately I had to leave sooner then I intended. Rick sent me a text saying that he owned me the remaining nights I missed out because of my early departure. I was amazed that he was prepared to honour the three days I missed out (through no fault of theirs) I might add. This is a very rear thing to see nowadays. Sandra & Rick are a great couple with a very nice B&B that they run. The breakfast is outstanding as is the company; they love a chat if you meet them in one of the many local pubs. I would highly recommend staying here, it’s a short work from the town centre, just far enough to be a very quite place to get some sleep from time to time. You arrive a stranger and leave as a friend

I stayed at the Kantana Guesthouse in January 2013. Warmly welcomed by the hosts I got the double room on the first floor which has a nice view. Breakfast was made to order und perfectly cooked. For a one night stay definitely worth it.

Sorry for the delay in writing this!
Went late last summer. What a hell hole. From the outside it looked bleak and tacky. This was replicated inside. Ever heard of a fresh coat of paint? The owner (i'm guessing Sandra from reading other reviews) was rude and obnoxious. If you ask for anything she looks at you like you have asked for her kidney.

The only good thing was the location. Looe is lovely town and would definitely return but would rather camp than stay here!

We spent three nights at the Kantana Guest House from the 9th to 12th September and stayed in an en-suite room overlooking the estuary which was very clean and comfortable with tv, radion and tea and coffee facilities. We were able to safely park our car in the Millpool public car park opposite.
Sandra made us so welcome right from the start and for the whole of our stay. She provides very good breakfasts which were well appreciated! The guest house is a minute walk into Looe and we will definitely be staying again. Highly recommended. Linda and Pete

We have taken many a holiday in Looe over the years, but have never stayed at Kantana until last weekend. Let me tell you that it was an amazing experience, home from home infact.
Sandra was so welcoming and honestly couldn't do enough for us.
Our room was beautifully clean and very well appointed/equiped. Full English breakfast is recommended although you can have whatever you like - just let Sandra know the night before.
Recommended :-)

Having organised a party of anglers for a 3 day charter from Looe and booked accommodation at the Parkdene site (Looe Bay) i discovered at the last minute that they could not give us the caravan for the first night.
I then set about contacting plenty of the local B & B's in Looe only to find that the standard reply was "Sorry we only take booking of a minimum 2 nights at this time of year". needless to say i was starting to panic now but the hostess, Sandra from the Kantana was more than happy to oblige us and what a result.
I found the landlady very pleasant over the phone even more so when we met she couldnt do enough for us. She even got up extra early to feed us as the boat was leaving earlier in the morning. Full english with cereals and toast and plenty of coffee got us fed and watered for the day.
Rooms were very clean and tidy as was the bathroom. The hospitality was deeply appreciated by all in the party.
So Sandra and Steve please give yourselves a hearty pat on the back. Suffice to say if i ever need a bed in Looe inthe future you will be fist on the hit list.
Many thanks
Steve , Hoss , Dave and Mick from Southampton.

We booked a quick weekend away last minute. Sandra & Steve were wonderful hosts. We had a rear facing quite room, very clean and comfortable. The full English breakfast is very good and very filling, also plenty of tea, toast & cereals. The b&b is a short walk into Looe, there is a big carpark across the road, which is £5.50 for 24 hours. We try and get away as often as we can and will most certainly be going back to the Kantana. Would highly recommend for anyone staying in Looe.

We have stayed with Sandra at Kantana many times. She gives you a really warm welcome every time, which makes returning really easy. Her rooms are clean, comfy and very well appointed. If you need anything to make your stay even better, just ask and she'll do her best to accommodate you. Her breakfasts are lovely, and plentiful. Whether you are planning a weekend break or a whole week/fortnight, Kantana is just right. It's only a short walk from the town where there are friendly pubs and lots of interesting places to eat. Yes, we'll be back as Sandra is now a really good friend.
