The Museum apartment has lots of Cornwall charm, is spotlessly clean and has everything you need. The beds are comfortable, well equipped kitchen and excellent shower as well as a bath. It is minutes from the beach and a short walk to shops, bars and restaurants.

“Close to the beach, the center of Looe and the station.”

This apartment is comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. It is very close to the beach and almost as close to the centre of Looe, with its huge choice of restaurants. We all travelled by train. The property is only about a 15 minute (level) walk from the train station, so ideal for anyone who either doesn't have a car or who wants to leave the car at home.

I think a car in Looe is not essential.

“Clean, comfortable and close to beach”
Reviewed 5 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Well equipped, nicely furnished and decorated, clean and comfortable. Quiet as away from main car/pedestrian routes but only 90 steps from sandy beach as "measured" by our eldest son and very near to range of shops and eateries. Car parking space was a real plus point - we used our car as a "shed" to store boogie boards, etc. Straightforward booking, directions and instructions re key and parking. Of particular note brown leather sofa very comfy and TV, wifi and power shower very good. This was our first visit to Looe during main school summer holidays now that both our boys are restricted by these dates and we were surprised just how busy it was as indeed were lots of nearby places that we visited - esp Mevagissey and Bude Summerleaze beach (altho it did noticeably quiet down after Bank Holiday weekend) but I guess this proves Cornwall's popularity and possible rise in staycations? We found the locals to be very friendly and helpful. Cafe Fleur was great for our youngest son who is gluten intolerant as we were able to get him suitable takeaway lunchtime snacks including a pasty! On a general note we were impressed with the much improved roads to Cornwall from our home in West Sussex - we managed to do the journey in approx 3 hrs 45 mins (albeit that we did set off on each leg at 4.30 am to avoid the traffic). The kids would love to come again - they spent hours on the sandy beach which was raked daily (& was dog free) building sandcastles, playing ball etc. The water was very calm and extremely shallow shelving. They enjoyed swimming, snorkelling, crabbing and fishing and also had an exhilarating day of boogie boarding on a low wind day on the north coast (which took us approx one hour to drive to). As they grow up I can see the north coast having more appeal but for now, Looe ticked lots of boxes!

Just spent a week at The Old Museum apartment and had a lovely last minute stay, the apartment is lovely, has everything that you would need. It is comfortable and like home from home, the instructions to get keys and parking are all very straight forward and we would fully recommend booking this apartment.
