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.

Struck gold Tom and Paula such a lovely couple and very welcoming nothing too much bother.We stayed in the foredeck room with beautiful views over Looe.It is spotlessly clean and lovely bathroom with toiletries robes and slippers.Tea,coffee biscuits replenished daily and such a comfortable bed . We had great conversation with them at breakfasts and many laughs!! My husband enjoyed full cooked breakfast everyday which looked amazing.I am not a big breakfast fan so chose something lighter and different everyday. Paulas boiled eggs are to die for xx Highly recommend staying at Schooner Point you will not be dissapointed.

We thankyou so much for your great recommendation, it really is appreciated. Tom and I enjoy our daily interaction with our guests and we had the time to spend with Frank and yourself, we did have a few laughs for sure. I am so pleased that the boiled eggs worked out okay, not something we are asked for very often!

Paula and Tom are the perfect hosts for a break in Looe. Very informative about all the questions concerning where to go and see. The breakfast was quality of both local produce and Paula made in-house food. A great combination. Only thing I was disappointed with was that my hosts could not stop the rain each day (just my luck). The room was very clean and nice touch was variety of biscuits each day. I therefore say if you want a quality stay they are the folks to stay with.

After suffering a landslide to the rear of our property in Looe Paula and Tom owners of Schooner point contacted us and offered us a room and shower facilities as soon as they found out about our predicament. The gas main had ruptured so that we had no hot water or heating. Although not staying with them they have offered us the use of the room as long as we want it. So refreshing to get such generosity in such a manic world. Thank you Paula and Tom your the best.

I had a fantastic time here when I was in Looe for a wedding. The place and hosts were warm and friendly. The room had a lovely view and met and exceeded my expectations. The breakfast is incredible and the views from the breakfast room over Looe are wonderful. Both Paula and Tom were great to chat too and were so friendly, knowledgeable and brilliant. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone visiting Looe, especially if you are a solo traveller. It was perfect!

Our short break In Cornwall featured a lovely room with a view in Looe, a beautiful walk along the river Fowey to Golitha Falls, a brief tour of Restormel Castle as well as dinner at The Old Custom House in Padstow where I enjoyed a bowl of the best mussels I’ve ever eaten. Thanks to Paula and Tom for making our stay feel like a home from home at Schooner Point Guest House which is probably the best B & B in Cornwall!

Our stay at the Schooner Point Guesthouse was brilliant. Our room was spacious and very comfortable with a fantastic view. The ensuite shower room and toilet were spotless. The breakfasts were amazing with such a wide variety of choices and freshly cooked to order. Paula and Tom made us so welcome and their advice on restaurants and places to visit was really helpful. They made us feel at home in their super house. It made our stay very special. Thank you both from Mike and Diana.

We are regular B and B’ers and can honestly say this one is probably the best we have ever stayed in. The room was immaculate with nice little “extras”. The bed was very comfortable. (I always bring along a mattress topper in the boot of my car….I didn’t need it here). Pillows were comfortable too. The en-suite shower room was spacious with plenty of towels and toiletries. I have never had a breakfast where it was 100% perfect….except here! From the homemade beans and marmalade, fresh fruit and cereals, perfect eggs, etc to the lovely tasting coffee…it just doesn’t get any better than this. Paula and Tom work well as a team. The public parking is literally right across the road (open 24 hours) and there is plenty of it. There are steps to the house but, hey, this is Cornwall! We were here for the music festival weekend… Friday to Monday, and the short walk into town was a bonus… we could just leave the car and not worry about having a drink or two. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend the Schooner Point guest house.

Thank you so much for this wonderful review. To be told our offering is right up there with the best is so satisfying and we are grateful for your whole hearted recommendation. We are pleased you mention the steps as you don't get those views on the flat and it is good to give others the heads up. It would be great to think we will see Andrew and yourself again.

We decided to treat ourselves as we usually self cater. We decided to give Schooner Point a try. When looking at the reviews it was a straight 100% excellent. Having read the reviews our minds were made up. Yes totally agree this was a 110% experience. We would like to give a massive thank you to Paula and Tom, who worked so very incredibly hard to make our long awaited holiday so wonderful. We choose the Foredeck Room which had a king size bed and en-suite bathroom. The room had plenty of storage and the bathroom was a good size with walk-in shower with supplies of body wash shampoo, conditioner and bathrobes and slippers if you needed them. The view from our room was so scenic both in the day and evening. Plentiful supplies of coffee and various teas and hot chocolate and fresh water plus a storage jar of biscuits. The bed was so comfortable with lovely soft pillows, and we both slept very well. There was a good choice at breakfast ranging from fresh fruit, honey yoghurt, compote and various breakfast cereals, fresh juices. As well as the full English option Paula and Tom also offered breakfast specials such as smoked salmon muffins, and vegetarian/vegan options, washed down with plentiful pots of tea and fresh filtered coffee. Paula and Tom were so helpful and friendly and went out of their way to suggest ideas for days out and even researched the timetables for the local train service. They both had excellent knowledge of the local and surrounding areas. We arrived as guests but left as friends. We will definitely be returning.

we found this by chance we were looking for a last-minute guest house and what a gem , honestly you won’t be disappointed the proprietors Tom and Paula were amazing nothing was too much for them and a breakfast second to none I would’ve give it 10 stars if I could put the proof is in the pudding and check the other reviews. There’s no one that would disagree with me ….
