Polraen Country House Hotel is seated a small 10 minutes drive from the center of Looe. From here you can explore Cornwall and Devon perfectly! The minute you walk into Polraen it feels like a warm bath (Dutch expression). Gill and Martin are making a great efford to make your stay as lovely and comfortably as possible. The room are lovely, we had a nice view over the garden. Breakfast was great and we specifically appreciated Gill being thoughtfull in bringing us 'weak' tea (that's how we like it in the Netherlands).
If we travel to Cornwall again, we would definately stay at Polraen again en we would definately recommend this hotel to everyone!

The warm welcome and tea and biscuits in the Lounge on arrival at Polraen started our holiday off for us. The twin bedroom had such comforts with en.suite bathroom and a small lounge with two armchairs and television etc. The breakfasts filled us to capacity lasting us all day, and the evening meals were just scrumptious. We cannot find fault with Polrean with its lovely garden and surrounding woods. It is by far the best hotel we have been too and cant wait to go again to enjoy the friendliness of Gill and Martin.

I had the pleasure of staying at Polraen a couple of times not long after the current owners relocated from The Big Smoke - and if they hadn't told me (and my ex-husband) that they were new to the trade then I'd have never guessed. Great hospitality and a very comfy stay along with great suggestions on things to do and see even further afield in Cornwall. One night I didn't want to go anywhere and staying around the B&B was just as nice with a lovely meal prepared on the premises. I was with them for about a week and it was a great base to come home to every day - but very emotional when I had to leave. I'm hoping to get down there soon and it's great to see that Gill and Martin are still there and doing so well. Can't recommend them enough. It was great with my now Ex but I'm looking forward to the Single experience just as much!

We stayed here for one night to get away from it all for my birthday, and it was just what we where looking for . Gill and Martin couldn't have been more welcoming , lovely hotel and breakfast was spot on ,our only regret was being there for just the one night we had booked in at the local indian restaurant which was very good because we love indian, but if we had stayed another night we would have definitely ate at the hotel , the menu looked good and it smelled lovely . Wouldn't look any further when we visit looe again

We stayed at Polraen for three nights in the two family rooms. We have enjoyed it very much and will certainly be back. The service is very personal and greatly appreciated. We arrived late, but both Martin and Gill were still up to welcome us. Polraen has everything to offer to families - large family rooms, parents can have a long breakfast while children are playing in the garden and evening dinner is served while the children can play in the livingroom or sleep safely in the bedrooms that are only one floor up. The surroundings of Polraen are also beautiful, many activities and places to discover. On top of it, we were lucky with the weather!

For three years I have been coming to Polraen with my elderly parents, each of whom has specific requirements. Without fail we have had a wonderful time. We are made to feel welcome from the moment we step through the door, until the time we wave goodbye! The rooms are beautifully presented and maintained and provide comfortable beds and spotless bathrooms.
The food is excellent; the best breakfasts anywhere - with evenings meals and Sunday roast to the same standard.
The house and gardens make this a unique place, with beautiful surrounding countryside, and all the interest of the coast and Looe.
I can recommend unreservedly.

Thank you for your kind comments and warm appreciation of our hospitality at Polraen. For many guests, Polraen is a unique place to stay, a 'home from home' where they can relax. It's lovely to have your repeat custom and to know that both you and your parents enjoy your stay. With very best wishes.
