What our guests have to say

Vicky & Simon from Cardiff in June 2018

We spent a beautiful weekend at The Old Bridge House, our room was immaculate, the breakfast choice and service superb. The owners Liz and Colin were marvellous hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. The view from the balcony over the estuary is stunning so we spent plenty of time there watching the world go by. We spent most of our time in Looe but also took a rib boat ride to Polperro for an afternoon which we would also thoroughly recommend to anyone it was great fun.

Dan & Victoria from Cheshire in May 2015

We stayed at the Old Bridge House last week and we had a lovely time. The place is kept immaculately clean, the rooms are cosy and ours offered a stunning view of the harbour. The breakfast menu was amazingly varied for a B&B and Colin and Liz were extremely attentive and a joy to be around. We would recommend this gorgeous B&B to anyone and we will definitely return many a time.

Joanne from Stourbridge in January 2015

We have been to visit The Old Bridge House many times, and taken friends and family too, we have never been disappointed, the standards of everything are impeccable, the welcome is always wonderful, and Colin and Liz are a lovely couple, always willing to please. The position of the property is perfect, and the breakfasts are to die for ! Enough said !

Dear Colin & Liz

I just wanted to write and say many thanks for looking after Joanne, Paul, Olive and myself at the weekend. We had a fantastic time, you should be very proud of the quality and service you provide to guests, it was truly 5 star!

Have a well deserved winter break.

Hello Colin & Liz,

Just arrived back in sunny Leicester after spending a few fantastic days at your palace! We really did enjoy staying with you and if we visit Looe (our second home) again, we will I'm sure look to stay with you again! A word of advice.....................keep doing exactly what you are doing because you are flipping good at it!! As we bumped into the 'Mexican Bandit' in the hall, the photo is for your benefit Liz! I expect you to return the compliment??

Have a great holiday!!!

All the best,


P.S. I'm joking about the sunny bit!! It never stopped raining from start to finish!!!

Hi Colin & Liz,
Greetings from HOT Melbourne. Ken & I (Sylvia) would like to wish you & your family a very joyful Christmas and that 2012 will bring exciting opportunities of creating an awesome year for you all.
Ken & I still recall the truly great- albeit short- time we spent in Looe; especially at your b&b and all the effort you go to,to make guests welcome & comfortable. In fact Yours is the best b&b we have ever stayed in! We both hope to visit you in Looe again, but next time we will stay a lot longer & tour all of Cornwall.
Also I believe my Uncle & Aunt( Ian & Karin Rawlings ) may have booked in to your place around the end of next summer.
Thank you again for making our time in Looe so lovely
Cheers to you both
** Sylvia & ken Melville**

Angela Harcourt from Norfolk in November 2011

Dear Colin & Liz

Thank you so much for making our weekend in Looe so enjoyable. Your B&B really is lovely and the breakfast is to die for! When I asked the boys if they would like to visit another area of Devon next time we go down they said, Only if the B&B is as good as this one!

I hope you have a lovely break from guests and holiday for yourselves and hope to see you again sometime. If you are ever coming to Norfolk do give us a look we do short breaks from November until the end of February. Like you, I am working through a website update but you can find us on

Many thanks again, you certainly deserve your Awards.

Kind regards

A huge thank you to you both, once again, for making my birthday weekend so special.

You have a lovely Hotel (B&B) and I could not have wished for any more.

Enjoy your break when you get away and I can assure you it is not the last you have seen of us, although I am not sure if that is a good or bad thing for you !!!!

Take care and thank you.

Jackie x x x (The Italian way)

Michael & Kirsty from Surrey in August 2011

Dear Liz & Colin,

Thank you for a great stay, the accomodation was excellent, the reception was friendly and you were both very helpful with any queries we had.

The advice you gave us on places to eat was helpful, although we might add the Smuggler's Cott to the list of great restaurants to visit!

An excellent location combined with very good facilities and also plenty of varied attractions nearby made this a really special holiday for us.

Thank you once again and we hope to visit again soon!

Juan from Colombia in July 2011

Dear Liz and Colin,

Thanks for your kindness and hospitality. We had a very good time at Looe, and staying at the Old Bridge House was indeed an essential part of the experience. We will go back some time.

Enjoy the summer, and the Colombian coffee.



Mr C crediton in July 2011

Dear Colin and Liz

Thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful time. All our friends thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and staying at the Old Bridge House was one of the highlights.

Thank you for your warm hospitality and your light-hearted touch and for making it clear that nothing was too much trouble..

Kind regards,

Chris & Louise

David & Sylvia. in June 2011

If you want first class Gold Award service, excellent accommodation & friendly proprietors, (who went beyond the call of duty to accommodate our needs), look no further than The Old Bridge House. The breakfasts were of gourmet qualities with a vast selection. The room was beautifully clean, with pristine linen & a vast selection of toiletries & a well stocked complimentary tray. We had previously stayed in 5 star accommodation again in Looe - but the Old Bridge House was far superior. We were sorry to be leaving.Best wishes to you both.

Steve & Frances from Sussex in June 2011

Thank you Colin & Liz for a wonderful long weekend in Looe.
Your warm friendly welcome immediately puts your guests at ease and your breakfast is second to none.
Everything is spotless and the location perfect for a great view of the harbour from the balcony and easy walk to the town and beach.
Our stay went all too quickly.

Hopefully we will see you again.

Best regards

Steve & Frances Shoreham Beach, Sussex

Barrie & Kim from Forrest of Dean in May 2011

Geoff and Tina

Mr T Wadman from Surrey in March 2011

Our short stay in Cornwall exceeded our expectation, the house was super clean, beds super comfortable and Colin and Liz could not be more welcoming. The breakfast was better than I have had in 5 star hotels. a great place to stay.

Maddie & Phil from London in February 2011

Good evening Colin and Liz

Just to say a big thank you for the wonderful stay we had at your hotel

We are back home but wish we were in Cornwall!!

Maddie and Phil xx

M Phillips from London in January 2011

Hello Colin, Hello Liz, Just a quick mail to say thanks for your hospitality over the New Year. You really do have a lovely little hotel and I have been singing your praises to anyone who will listen. If I do come down to Looe again I will book room 2,but as I was saying to Colin I found there were so many memories of my dear wife and it was so painful every where I went. It brought back memories. I would like to thank you once again and wish you a successful 2011. Kindest Regards. Mike Phillips.

Glenn from West London in October 2010

This is an absolutely cracking hotel! Absolutely charming and with bags of character, just like the owners Liz and Colin, who make you feel extremely welcome and do their level best to look after you. The room was lovely and the bathroom so immaculate you'd swear it'd only been fitted the day before. As for the breakfasts, well let's just say they're worth the trip alone, and perfect fuel for that walk along the coastal path to Polperro!

MIKE& AUDREY from PENRITH in October 2010



F Whitfield in October 2010

Hello Liz n Colin,

Thank you for a very lovely stay at your hotel, you must be very proud to have such a clean, tidy and well run business, our stay at your hotel and the weather we had for the week was just what the doctor ordered, your hospitality is second to none.

Very many thanks,

Fred n Sandy,, room 10 from 24th to 29th sept

Tina McKeown from Frome in October 2010

Fantastic Hotel. I personally do not think that anything could be any better. I have stayed in 5* Hotels that are not up to the standard here.Keep up the fantastic work. Tina and Jim x

Carole & Doug from The Old Bridge House, Looe in September 2010

Have just arrived home from a weeks stay at The Old Bridge House and had the most brilliant time. The hospitality of Colin & Liz was exceptional, they could not do enough for us. The food was excellent, rooms beautifully furnished and every detail had been thought out.
We had a harbour view room which was the 'icing on the cake'.
Thank you Colin and Liz for making our stay with you very special.
Will certainly be returning - can't wait..........

karen & Phill Weaver from Solihull, West Midlands in August 2010

Thank you Colin and Liz for making us feel so welcome at The Old Bridge House.
Accomodation 1st class, excellent breakfast, friendly atmosphere. Will definitely be returning.
Many thanks, Karen & Phill

Sharon & David Evans from Wolverhampton in August 2010

This was our fouth stay at The Old Bridge House (15-18 August 2010).
As always, the welcome, food and accommodation were first class. Really can't imagine staying anywhere else - we have been spoiled by the attention to detail at TOBH and doubt that anywhere else could meet the exacting standards of TOBH.
We will be back - can't wait!
Thanks Liz and Colin.

Kieran Knowles from Orpington Kent in August 2010

I have to say that the hotel was absolutely outstanding. The owners Colin and Liz were the perfect hosts and were very welcoming at the time of arrival. I thought that the breakfast was very nice and yummy, great variety of breakfast choices. The room was very clean and big which was very nice. The ensuite bathroom was very modern and very clean also. Nice hospitality trays in the room and ensuite. I'd definatelt stay at the hotel again.

Teresa & Mick Heavey in August 2010

Hi Colin & Liz,
Thanks very much for ensuring we had a very relaxing & comfortable 4 days.
It goes without saying that everything was spot-on.
The thing that stood out the most was all the neat little touches that make for total relaxation. This is something that bigger [supposedly] professional Hotels still seem to make a mess of all too often. as we found out on our way home via Bournemouth !!!
The supposedly simple things are all too easily messed up by many establishments, but you don't miss out on anything; a prime example being the excellent welcome - & an equally tasty & well presented cappuccino on our arrival.
The eating out advice was also welcome.
We will definitely be returning & letting our friends, relatives [& business acquaintances] also know all about your Hotel especially the ones who enjoy a superb breakfast.
Best Wishes to you both
Teresa & Mick Heavey

Rachel & David from Bucks in August 2010

A wonderful weekend stay - thank you!

You made our family weekend extra special, and we would certainly recommend your hotel and stay again.

Thanks again

The Morris Family

Ray Southard from Saltford in May 2010

Dear Liz & Colin,
I thought it necessary that I should E Mail you following my stay.

Your guest house was most comfortable, (especially the bed), the breakfast sublime, and would put most hotels to shame, the room facilities excellent, and the hospitality top drawer.

It was a pleasure to stay there, and I will extol its qualities to those I know who may find the desire to visit Looe.

Thank you Liz & Colin, I wish you every success in the future,

Ray Southard.

G Duffy from Leicestershire. in May 2010

What a gem, I stayed here for 5 days last week,everything was first class, I was very impressed with the cleanliness, the service, the welcome, and of course the breakfast's are brilliant, I would recommend this hotel to all,and should I be in this area again, this will be my first choice, thanks to Colin and Liz.

Arthur & Chris Worthington from Halesowen, West Midlands in April 2010

Hi Liz & Colin
All the guest book comments are very true which should make you feel realy proud of The Old Bridge House. Thank you for making our 4 day stay so memorable. We liked everything about The Old Bridge from its location, our lovely room, the cosy lounge bar, the wonderful breakfasts (the bacon really is top class!)the picture popstcard views and of course Liz & Colin. We should have been in Portugal but the volcanic ash put paid to that but what a bonus Looe turned out to be. We must return because Chris wants to buy a clock for her sisters special wedding anniversary! Best regards Arthur & Chris

This is a wonderful place to stay. I went down with Darren and Reece last summer, and we had a fantastic three days. I loved the honesty bar and the great breakfasts. Will we be revisiting the place? Only for the next 10 years, I imagine. Thank you, The Old Bridge House.

Russ and Laura from Bristol in October 2009

We had an excellent stay at the hotel - the hospitality and welcome was warm and friendly; the location was perfect for exploring Looe and the facilities at the hotel were excellent including the bar overlooking the harbour and breakfast the following morning.

Thoroughly enjoyable - we would recommend.

Les & Anna Drew from Exmouth in October 2009

Judy from Cheltenham in October 2009

Hi Colin and Liz,

Thank you for your lovely hospitality whilst we were with you. We had a very enjoyable time despite the odd inclement weather. I do hope not to experience such a soaking when we next come to stay. Hope the redecorating proceeds without any hitches. All the best for your out of season time and for Christmas with your lovely grandson and rest of the family.

Best Wishes,

Judy Boothby.

Bern & Jenny Barber from Southampton in August 2009

We do not normally post comments after a stay however the Old Bridge House deserves a special mention.
Lovely room, breakfast was delicious and more than enough! to keep us going throughout the day. Colin & Liz were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble. All in all an excellent 5 days stay.

Debbie And David from Southampton in March 2009

Hi Everyone at The Old Bridge House,
I would like to say thank you for making Mum and Dads stay for their Pearl wedding Anniversary so special. They were made to feel welcome from the moment they arrived.
Mum said the hotel was spotless (and anyone who knows my mum knows that that is a big compliment).
The food they said was faultless and the presentation was picture perfect. They will definitely be returning and bringing other family members with them.
The webcam was a big hit too I had regular phone calls from them telling me too log on and there they were waving to me. Thank you again and best wishes to you all. Katie.x

Martin & Lorraine Dixon from Bewdley, Worcestershire in February 2009

Dear Liz & Collin

We stayed with you from 16th February - 21st.

We will most certainly visit again.

Adam and Fiona from Wibsey, west yorks in January 2009

Adam and Fiona

Cassandre Khoury from BBC Channel 4 in January 2009

Dear Liz and Colin,

Many thanks for providing us with a wonderful place to stay whilst making the series 'Boys and Girls for Channel 4.

The crew loved their time in Cornwall and especially enjoyed having a lovely place to come home to at the end of very long and tiring days.

Once again, thank you to you and all your team for your help and support. We hope you enjoy the series.

Best wishes,

Cassandre Khoury

Roger & Sue Smith from Aldridge, West Midlands in December 2008

Thanks Liz and Colin for another very enjoyable stay with you recently. Everything as expected, and your hospitality is just right. Good luck for the future and hope to see you again.

John & Yvonne Muscroft from Rotherham in December 2008

We stayed for two nights in December 2008. Our only disappointment was that we didn't stay longer. From the point of arrival we were welcomed like old friends. Breakfast was just like the view from the bedroom window....brill, and the weather was just like when we were last in Looe in July.......wet and cold.
Thank you Colin & Liz we will definitely return.
John & Von

Colquhoun Robert from Hamburg.Germany in October 2008

Just a line to say thanks for everything super service,veiws and hospitality.when were in Looe again would not consider staying anywhere else THANKS for everything

Judith Taylor from Gloucestershire in September 2008

Liz and Colin

Just wanted to drop you a little note to say how much we enjoyed our stay in your hotel, being honest neither of us had stayed in smaller hotels - tending through work to always be placed in national chains - but your has won us over to the warmth of the hospitality and the the atmosphere, hopefully we will return in the not too distant future,


Debby Wiseman from Mandurah, Western Australia in September 2008

An ideal location to explore Cornwall and for those of you without a car, you can get around using public transport quite well from Looe. Colin and Liz treated us like family and I would recommend The Old Bridge House as a relaxing, comfortable and affordable 'home away from home'.
PS Colin: We thought the heart shaped toast was just for us!

Chris and Graeme from Sheffield in July 2008

We had an enjoyable 4 day break in the Old Bridge House Hotel.Liz and Colin made us feel very welcome.A good idea to have an 'honesty box' bar for buying drinks.Good location for the town centre and exploring further afield with a lovely view from our bedroom.
Well cooked beakfasts using excellent locally sourced bacon.The 'heart shaped toast' was a bonus reserved for specal guests so I was told.

Julia from Highworth in May 2008

Just to say thank you to both Colin and Liz for being lovely hosts. You always make us feel really welcome and we very much enjoyed our few days with you.


Julie Rhodes from Bristol in May 2008

Thank you for making our stay at The Old Bridge House so welcoming. We had a really good time and could not fault the hotel at all.

It is a lovely place. Thank you both.

Mary & Steve from Wales in April 2008

Dear Liz, Colin and Teddy,

Just a very short note to say a 'very big' thank you for your excellent welcome, hospitality and service!

Steve and I, as usual have returned very relaxed and unstressed!!!!!

Look forward to seeing you in October. Once I have definite 'yes's' (if that makes sense!) for any others that wish to join us, I will check availability with you.

Thanks once again.

Love Mary and Steve.

Have stayed here a few times now with Jo (girlfriend) Always had a most enjoyable time. Always warm and friendly. Looking forward to spending New Year With Liz + Colin. Can't wait.

Madeleine from Birmingham in September 2007

Dear Liz and Colin
We really did not want to come home on Friday and would have been happy to stay longer. 4 days was not enough.
Your guest house is in a great central position with lots to see in the harbour from our bedroom window. The rooms are well equipped and spotless. (I know because I dropped a very small earring stud and had to perform a fingertip search under the bed!) And what a great breakfast. Had a super holiday in Looe, not least because of this splendid accommodation and hope to return one day soon.

Best wishes

Sally & Denton from London in August 2007

Many thanks to both Colin & Liz for making our second visit to The Old Bridge House a very enjoyable one.

What a world of difference from London life! Friendly, hospitable, welcoming, yet plenty of privacy. What more can we say? We had a wonderful time staying at The Old Bridge House.

We'll definitely be back again and hopefully for longer this time. Would recommend it to anybody! Many thanks indeed.

Dear Colin & Liz,

We had a wonderful but all too short stay with you this week, and we have to say that your warm welcome and fabulous accommodation won our hearts. On top of this, add the magnificent location of Looe and, of course, we have to return! We simply have to come back to savour more of your hospitality, not to mention a few more restaurants?

See you soon!

Kindest regards
Mike & Linda Philpot

Mike & Sharon from United Kingdom in July 2006

Thank you both for a wonderful few days stay at your B&B, we were made to feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The superb rooms were only matched by the truly sumptuous breakfasts the quality of which must be tasted to be appreciated.
We will be recommending your establishment to all our friends and will be revisiting you next year.

Jan Bridger & Phill Ciano from United Kingdom in July 2006

Many thanks! A warm welcome, outstanding service, lovely accomodation and a delicious, hearty breakfast.
It's a fabulous hotel with lovely decor and everything is so spotlessly clean.
Especially loved Colin's trousers and apron!!!
Hope we can stay longer next time.
Jan and Phil (Honda party)

Barry Page and Martyn Mitchell from United Kingdom in July 2006

We had the most wonderful time this past weekend, The Oldbridge House not only met but far exceeded the expectations built up by the website. The room was fantastic with an incredible view and although our waistlines are not complaining our tastebuds are, at not having one of those wonderful full Engilsh breakfasts this morning. We will certainly be returning early next year but staying for much longer then a weekend, we shall also be letting our friends and family know about The Oldbridge House for when they next visit Cornwall. Thank you again for making our stay in Looe so special and we hope to see you again very soon.


Barry and Martyn.

Nigel & Denise Coombs from United Kingdom in July 2006

Just a short line to thank you for a lovely stay. Although the weather was not so good, your hospitality more than made up for that.

The restaurant you booked for us was superb. We will definately be back very soon.

Give our love to Teddy.

Nigel and Denise

Pete & Pam Brewer from United Kingdom in July 2006

Great location with lovely view. Very friendly and hospitable, and a delicious cooked breakfast.

Thank you

Tony Dean from United Kingdom in July 2006

Thank you so much for your hospitality last week - it was nice to receive such a warm welcome after a long journey. You have successfully blended your business with the impression given to guest that we are invited into your home as friends.
It's a shame you have to charge! The breakfast were excellent also and very well presented. Colin - keep practicing on the fried bread for next time? Ha ha.

Jean & Mike Bacon from United Kingdom in July 2006

Great Weekend, you have a lovely spot there. We really felt refreshed after our short two day visit. Breakfasts were superb. Many thanks.

Catherine Perry from United Kingdom in July 2006

Thanks for making us feel so at home when we stayed, especially as we had come to Cornwall for a funeral and were in need of a friendly welcome! Thanks, too, for looking after our mum who stayed on after we went home. Would love to make a return visit and wake up again to that wonderful view and the sound of the gulls!

Beverley Pearce from United Kingdom in July 2006

Thankyou for making us feel so welcome.Fabulous views,hotel spotless and Liz and Colin were the perfect hosts.The breakfasts Colin were spot on! Tigger bounced all the way home (Thanks!!!).See you soon in the dryer season Love Bev,John and Molly

Steve Prior from United Kingdom in July 2006

Our stay at the Old Bridge House was most enjoyable. We were welcomed to the house which is in a superb location with great views and perfect for absorbing the atmosphere of the town, the coast and Cornwall. The rooms were very well appointed and spotless. Colins cooked breakfasts are the most superb I have ever had, and that was an inventive treat; sticking a candle in sausage on my birthday. Thanks for great stay, if back in Looe we wouldn't consider staying else where, so long as we can get in.

Paul thompson from United Kingdom in July 2006

What an excellent location to spend a few days. The atmosphere is rather like sitting at home with your best mate. The rooms are spotless and the breakfast well worth waiting for, it will keep you going all day. If you can get a room with a river view, you will be amazed how lively the place is, with fishing and sail boats coming and going. Liz and Colin really do make you feel welcome and sitting in the bar at night, overlooking the river after a meal in the quaint town is just ideal. We will return. ( Liz you really need to help Colin get over his painful shyness !! . thanks for agreat long weekend Paul and Jan
