The Talland Bay Hotel (Hotel)

Submit Review
Talland Bay Hotel is an award-winning coastal retreat, tucked away in a tranquil corner of South East Cornwall, and set just yards from the South West Coast Path and beach. Guests can look forward to some of the finest food from the most talented regional producers.

What makes a stay at The Talland Bay Hotel unique?

From the eclectic mix of sculptures and art both inside and out, to the one of a kind décor, Talland Bay Hotel has a character all of its own. Each bedroom and reception room is individually styled, with many boasting captivating views out over the sea to the horizon. The pine-fringed lawns offer secret footpaths, sunny terraces and exquisite foliage, whilst the cosy interiors are perfect for storm watching in front of the fire. A stay at Talland Bay is all about indulgence, whether that's a signature afternoon tea, a sumptuous feast or the wicked range of gins. Arguably what sets this Cornish sanctuary apart, however, is the outstanding levels of hospitality and customer service that complement the amazing food and location.

What are the rooms and facilities on offer at The Talland Bay Hotel?

The 23-room boutique property offers a range of sea view rooms, classic rooms and garden suites. There is a cosy residents' lounge, and an inviting bar and lounge area, with food served in either the sunny conservatory or the fine-dining Terrace restaurant. When the weather permits, diners can eat outside on the terrace or book a private afternoon tea in the garden pavilion.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Looe area?

Guests can opt to hike the coast path between Looe, Talland Bay and Polperro, or visit the Old Sardine Factory Heritage Centre and browse the shops in Looe. Find out about the area's long history of smuggling at the Polperro Heritage Museum, or take a boat trip to Looe Island, the only marine nature reserve in Cornwall. You could also go horse riding at Polmartin Farm, or visit one of several nearby National Trust properties, including Lanhydrock and Antony House. Colwith Farm Distillery, Cornwall's first 'plough to bottle' gin and vodka distillery, is also well worth a visit.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

Aside from Talland Bay Hotel's own delectable, award-winning dining options, there are quaint Cornish pubs such as the Three Pilchards at Polperro. In Looe, head to the Old Sail Loft or the Sardine Factory for more excellent foodie options. Talland Bay Beach Café (seasonal) is another great option for teas, coffees and cake.

Amalfi coast or Cornwall ? We have recently returned from a brilliant 7 night stay at the Talland Bay hotel.The weather was ,on the whole,glorious,the location of the hotel is stunning with the main terrace and gardens overlooking the bay. The main dining restaurant also has fabulous views which adds to the dinning experience.The food itself is superb and beautifully presented with options including lobster,crab and turbot - delicious! For a more informal option there is a brassiere which although we didn't eat there the food looked good...

The setting and grounds are absolutely stunning, with beautiful sea views. Talland bay hotel has real character and is truly unique with stylish decor and quirky style. We had one of the best meals of our lives in the a la carte restaurant, which is a real asset to the hotel. We hope to return one...

But most of all it's the food!! Th...

The Talland Bay Hotel

Superb stay We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights DB&B with friends. We had 3 dogs between us and the staff couldn't be anymore accommodating and dog friendly. It was so lovely to be able to relax knowing your dog is with you. Good quality food freshly cooked. Wine & drinks the pricey side but the view of the coast and sea make up for that. We stayed in a sea view room of a good size for us and our JR. Our friends were upgraded to larger room with direct ground floor access to the garden which made it easier with 2 dogs. It is difficul...

The Talland Bay Hotel

The People make the biggest difference We have stayed here on two occasions now. The most recent being last week. Yes the location is fantastic. Yes the rooms are well appointed. Yes the food is delicious Yes dogs are exceptionally well catered for However what makes this hotel and the experience of staying here a cut above the rest is simply the staff. Welcoming, attentive but not intrusive. Helpful, willing to assist in any way they can. For me they just get it absolutely right. Can you find cheaper places to stay in Cornwall? Ye...

The Talland Bay Hotel

Fabulous Hotel! I don't usually write reviews however I felt compelled to after my stay at Talland Bay Hotel.My husband and I stayed for only one night but that one night was the best we have spent in any hotel. The hotel's setting is superb, the food delicious and the staff were all very friendly and made you feel welcome. they could not do enough for you. What more can I say ? Just I would highly recommend a stay there.

The Talland Bay Hotel

Another successful stay in Talland Bay! Our fourth visit in the past two years to the remarkable and unique Talland Bay Hotel. This was our first full week vacation at TBH having only stayed 4-5 days in the past but makes going home even more difficult for us all. Having initially been recommended to this incredible location due to the Dogfriendlyness of the staff, we were amazed at just how Pet friendly it was, with our four legged family been treated as 'proper' guests. Everyone we encounter at TBH is so friendly, warm and...

The Talland Bay Hotel

The best place I have ever stayed! As the title says, this is quite simply the best. I suppose the setting is hard to beat, looking down through the gardens to the sea. And the food is wonderful. But what makes the difference is the staff. Every one of them greeted you with a smile, and not a forced one that you might see elsewhere - just a genuine, welcome, happy to see you smile. It made the whole place feel relaxed and welcoming. We will definitely be back.

The Talland Bay Hotel

Fantastic hotel with first class customer service We were celebrating our silver wedding anniversary so decided to stay in some of the hotels I had admired from a distance for a very long time. We started at the Endsleigh Hotel (Milton Abbott), second stop the Talland Bay and thirdly Hotel Ellenborough Park at Cheltenham. Talland Bay was by far the best of them, it was faultless. The staff were fabulous, Charlie and Sarah worked tirelessly in the restaurant and no matter what time of day or how busy they were they always had a smile on th...
