We spent three days at this lovely guest house in East Looe. I cannot fault any aspect of our stay. The room was light and airy and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was fabulous, with a huge selection of cereals, fruit, cold meats and smoked salmon. The cooked breakfast was beautifully prepared. Louise was a perfect host who did...

An amazing place to stay!!! The couple that run the B+B are so friendly! Made us feel so welcome and relaxed and were the perfect mix between giving you your own space and speaking you to give you tips and ideas of where to go. Breakfast was great value and really yummy (even catered for me - a vegan!) and...

Wonderful. Both my partner and I are vegan, the lovely family run hotel catered for us brilliantly. We had a cooked breakfast each morning which included vegan sausages and soya milk. The hotel has a lovely terrace with many spots where you can sit and enjoy the view with a coffee or something stronger. Our room had views of the...

Rooms are spacious. River view. Excellent breakfast. Walk from hotel to harbour Looe is possible but required some hazardous crossing of part of road without boardwalk. Staff is super. Including owners. Wifi in our bedrooms was bad to non-existent. Wifi was ok in public areas.

Very relaxing stay. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Very clean, comfortable large bed and delicious breakfast. Views over Looe are lovely and there is short walk into the town centre but be careful of the main road, as there is no pavements.

Absolutely fabulous, we had 2 wonderful nights at this superb hotel. We went to our grandsons pass out parade at HMS Raleigh on Friday 28th Mar and decided to stay a couple of days in Cornwall to revisit some of my wife's childhood holiday memories. We searched and booked through booking.com and couldn't believe our luck when we first arrived....

Booked Commonwood Manor based on the reviews and photos. What an absolutely stunning building and location. The sun was out during our visit and the views were beautiful. The staff and owners were incredibly welcoming and made us feel very at home. Breakfast is not to be missed. I really enjoyed my vegetarian full English. If the weather is good...

My wife and I booked Commonwood Manor for a last minute weekend away. What a fabulous weekend! First the house itself is just beautiful and very well designed. Louise clearly has a great eye for detail and design and the rooms are stunning - both the bedrooms and the public rooms. People have already commented on the breakfasts, open kitchen...
