A former 17th-century smuggler haunt tucked into the harbour of a fishing village in Cornwall, with an AA Rosette restaurant – includes breakfast, three-course dinner and late check-out

  • A great place for a coastal getaway, The Lugger Hotel is a scenic spot tucked into the cove and harbour of Portloe – an idyllic fishing village in south Cornwall. The hotel boasts a rich history, having been a 17th-century inn and haunt of local smugglers, and the buildings perched on the rugged coast make for a picturesque setting. 

  • Overlooking the harbour and sea, the award-winning restaurant serves classical cuisine based on locally sourced produce, particularly shellfish, lobster and crab. The restaurant has scooped up two AA Rosettes for its combined British and European cuisine – and it's easy to see why. The Lugger Hotel also suitably bagged a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

  • The hotel has 23 bedrooms that are comfortably furnished with bleached Portuguese woods, soft lighting and crisp white linens, creating a cosy and contemporary feel. All rooms have luxurious en-suite bathrooms, with deep baths and deluge showers, and both Classic and Superior rooms come with views over the village.
