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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had an exceptional stay at Penwyn with Simon and the lovely Oksana looking after us. We didn't want to leave! The room was great with everything you need and more with beautiful views across Looe. You could spend your whole holiday just looking at that view. The breakfast was also delicious! Loved how close it is to the centre, a couple of mins walk down the hill and you're in the heart of East Looe. Didn't get chance to say bye to Poppy and the friendly cat ha ha. Loved chatting with Simon and Oksana, we will be back once we've saved up again!

Lovely b&b in Looe, warm welcome from Simon. Everything in the room that you could wish for tea, coffee, fridge with still/sparkling water and fresh milk. The bed was so comfortable and the view from the window and patio area is stunning. Lovely homemade biscuits left for us from Simon. Oksana is lovely and served us our breakfast with a smile and was lovely to chat with. Nothing too much trouble. The music festival was on Friday to Sunday all around the town, outside and inside too. Local talented bands and singers throughout the day/night. Well worth a visit at this time of year. Lots of places to eat around the town, we tried Pepe tex-mex, Chennai (Indian),Kelly’s (Fish restaurant) and all of them were brilliant, food excellent and service lovely. All well worth a visit. The streets are very narrow and winding but Simon made us aware and even sent us pictures due to parking being so tight. Fantastic stay and would definitely recommend.

Simon and Edwina are the most delightful hosts, gorgeous room with a stunning view, gorgeous breakfast, handy offstreet parking 100yds away from the B&B, nice and central next to all the great bars/restaurants in East Looe and to top it off, fresh homemade biscuits. Utterly brilliant stay, we'll be back as soon as we can!

Loved the place from the minute we walked through the door. The room, the ensuite, the bed, the homemade biscuits, the view down to the river from the bay window & the sea from the side window. Outside parking was a bonus. Nothing was too much trouble for Simon - his breakfast was spot on. We seriously couldn't have asked for more. Even the January weather seemed spring like. We will definitely be back

Perfect location for your stay in Looe I’m so happy we booked this property, after first lockdown was so uncertain to travel, but I’m so thankful we chose this lovely and cozy room with a breathtaking view to the bay (would like to mention you can see the sea just from the side window) The property is 5-7 minutes walk from the beach. We had a spotless room, very tasty freshly cooked English breakfast. Highly recommend! Would never forget the breathtaking view from the terrace, was so romantic!

in a tricky place but excellent directions from the host meant an easier find than may have been expected. upstairs room gave a fantastic view over the bay which was a bonus. the hill to and from the "town" of looe was fortunately short! the host was very friendly and the room spotless. breakfast was also very good. parking outside was a massive bonus. overall a very pleasant stay.

Just spent two lovely days for our 40th Wedding Anniversary. Simon made us very welcome and room lovely and very comfortable and large. Lovely modern bathroom. Everything you can think of available in room fridge, tea facilities, iron and hairdryer. All around windows to look out over Looe. The Cornish breakfast cooked by Simon was delicious and set you up for the day and nice touch in yr room homemade cookies. Would highly recommend this B&B and hope to return. Simon is right book yr restaurants before you arrive.

We had a lovely stay at this b&b in August 2021. Our room was immaculate and had a lovely little balcony that over looked Looe harbour. It was lovely to sit and watch the lights of Looe come on whilst having a lovely drink on the balcony. On our arrival the couple had even baked some lovely biscuits that morning and left them in our room, we thought this was a lovely touch. The couple who own the b&b were very friendly and Simon cooked us a lovely full English and went out of his way to cook it how you wanted it.

Myself and my partner stayed here for 3 nights at the end of June and had a wonderful time. Simon was incredibly welcoming and friendly. This property has one en-suite room that they rent out so you are their only guests at any one time. The room is lovely and has all the facilities you could possibly need, not to mention the fantastic views of Looe We felt very comfortable the entire time and felt very at home. Breakfast was lovely and Simon caters to personal dietary requirements, the home made biscuits were a definite win! We stayed 4 different properties over the week and this was by far our favourite! Would recommend to everyone!
