A quirky and luxurious hotel tucked into an idyllic bay between Looe and Polperro.
Porthallow Cornwall PL13 2JB 01503 272 667
Bang on the South West Coast path, the Talland Bay
Hotel is all about pure relaxation. Forget the trappings of spa treatments,
indoor pools and sports facilities – here the focus is on glorious
sea views, sub-tropical gardens, fine Cornish cuisine and lounging around in a
quirky, luxurious environment. The 22-rooms have been individually decorated –
there’s a roll-top bath in one, a sleigh bed in another – and the hotel has a
vast collection of local and international artwork in the rooms and around the
gardens. As well as a fine dining restaurant, there’s a swanky brasserie in the
sea-view conservatory (where the dishes are a little lighter but no less
divine), and a very comfy bar too, which like the rest of the hotel is
dog-friendly. Just as well: this is prime territory for strolling with your
faithful hound, a short walk away from glistening Talland Bay – childhood
haunt of Dame Judi Dench – from where the South West Coast Path fans east to
Looe (3.5 miles) and west to Polperro (2 miles). Sweeping up a grand tally of
awards, including 'Best Small Hotel in Cornwall’ a few years ago, and best Southwest restaurant in 2017, this former
family home proves that location, style and cuisine are all you need to relax
and embrace the natural beauty and lifestyle this part of the world
offers. The fab clifftop location and ocean backdrop would also look pretty good in wedding photos...just saying.
