The Lugger Hotel Portloe, Cornwall


Surrounded by cliffs and headlands which form an idyllic part of the Cornish Coastal Footpath, Portloe possesses an unrivalled beauty and enduring timelessness.

The Lugger Hotel – Cornwall’s only AA-rated Five Star Inn, and selected by the Sunday Times as the “Best Seaside Hotel” – sits right on the water’s edge in the centre of this delightful village. Each of the 22 bedrooms is beautifully decorated and has deluxe showers and fine linens.

Additionally, a range of three private cottages are available for guests desiring the utmost seclusion, space and freedom. In particular, the three-bedroom Cobb Cottage features self-catering facilities, a generous lounge, as well as breath-taking panoramic views.

Here at the Lugger, we are delighted to offer dogs a lovely place to call home. However, we do have some house rules. There is a charge of £25 per dog, per night. and we allow only one dog per room. If you wish to bring your dog, we ask that you let us know in advance.

There is also a two AA Rosette restaurant on site, where guests can enjoy the best of local produce and cuisine. Many of England’s most popular attractions – such as the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Maritime Museum of Falmouth – are also within easy striking distance.

Don’t just take our word for it, see the review from the Financial Times:  ‘For traditional Cornish charm and a waterside location, The Lugger, a 17th Century Inn in Portloe, is hard to beat’.
