Owners and staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly. Good selection for breakfast. Would definitely return. Looe is an excellent place to base yourself as there are so many places of interest within striking distance as well as the coastal walks.

Simon & Louise were wonderful hosts and very caring when I was unwell. Nothing was too much trouble and the rooms were well stocked and beautifully clean. Everything was provided from the luxurious dressing gowns to toiletries and soft white towels.

Lovely B and B with excellent facilities and host. We really enjoyed our stay and delicious breakfast with lovely home Mage jams. The hosts were lovely and full of information about the local area, ready to go to any lengths for the guests.

A lovely boutique B&B located in East Looe with views overlooking the river. We were met by Simon and taken on a tour along with the history of the property by a very enthusiastic Louise. Simon and Louise offer a warm welcome to their property with tea and coffee making facilities not only in the rooms but also the facility...

We didn't really want to review this place for fear that it will become too popular and we shan't be able to get a room when next we want to visit Looe! However, that would not be fair, as it is a delightful place to stay. Our hosts, Louise and Simon, are such warm and welcoming people. Nothing is too...

Commonwood manor is a lovely place to stay. A real home from home. Simon and Louise are more than welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Also being able to take the dog was just amazing. We will defiantly be going back.
