Customer Rating: Dr THOMAS, Newport Great hotel,setting,food and price

Customer Rating: Mr Harris, Tavistock A really delightful hotel for a short break. Comfortable room, excellent food, friendly and helpful staff, lovwly location and little extras to make your stay special.

Customer Rating: Mr Gill, London The Lugger at Portloe, Cornwall, is an excellent hotel. It's run by a company (Bespoke) that evidently cares about things beyond making money. Staff and service and food quality were all superb. At a time of fierce cold in the snowy days that ended February and began March 2018, the staff were impressively helpful, friendly and relaxed.

Customer Rating: Mr Medhurst, Yelverton The service was disappointingly slow at the first breakfast but fine at all other times.

Customer Rating: Mr Warlow, Wadhurst Difficult access to room - no good if you have bad legs!!
