Stayed here from 18th - 22nd of August after a couple of days in Devon. It was quite a risk staying here for five nights being our first guest house, but after reading the glowing reviews how can we go wrong. The only positive attribute I can give it, is the great location peering out over the harbour, but for what it is, its quite expensive and we didn't even pay to have the sumptuous award winning breakfasts we kept reading about, which by the way is only served between eight and nine. Maybe in hindsight, I should've researched the area in more detail because there are hotels better equipped, with more facilities, less expensive and with ample parking. While I'm on the subject lets mention the parking, am I the only customer who has resided here annoyed, fed up, peeved, disappointed about the pathetic parking procedures. You pull up outside the guest house in one of two loading bays, haul your bags up a hill onto some stairs and into the retro 1980's accommodation. Then park your car half a mile away which is pay and display, but you could always park the other side of Looe, which is free as long as you don't mind walking the best part of a mile, at the time risking your car getting scraped or battered by another vehicle. If I would've known about the ridiculous parking procedures in the first placed I'd have stayed elsewhere.
The room was adequate enough, very clean, located on the side of the building with these hideous net curtains which me and my partner loathe, but because of it's location, peering out onto a pedestrian walkway this seemed vital, I would've preferred a brick wall though, or a sound barrier as it was very noisy on occasions with shouting kids and normal folk with raised voices. The TV and décor in the room is old and outdated, but the bathroom is very nice and cleaned daily. Where was the Wi-Fi mentioned, because it wasn't in the very brief accommodation itinerary.
As I've said I can't say much about the so called 'amazing breakfasts', but if that's the best thing I can see other people commenting about then I think that's very sad. If other folk gave an honest review about the accommodation I would've stayed elsewhere. This five night stay has cost me and my partner £470, and wasn't what I expected.
For my first stay in Cornwall I'm very disappointed, there's 'pay & display' parking everywhere, it's probably cost us fifty quid in parking charges. Looe is a beautiful village which was ridiculously overcrowded with people, with thousands of hideous dogs everywhere, I hate dogs and my partner is almost terrified of them. They welcome them nd there smelly selves in pubs, restaurants, shops etc. From now on it's hotels all the way with a host of facilities of sorts, dog proof, better parking and somewhere I can't get bored because there's nothing to do.
