“Just what we needed :)”
Reviewed 14 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

The flat was lovely and cool - ideal for the middle of the heatwave. The flat was clean and tidy, and we had everything we needed. The bed was really comfy too. Mark and Jo were very helpful - great hosts. Thanks also for the afternoon tea left for us on arrival!
The distance to the harbour was no problem at all - we went for a swim every evening and then wandered back up the hill, stopping for a drink on the way :)
We’d definitely recommend The Retreat, and would definitely stay here again if in the area.

“A lovely comfortable appartment. Good location.”
Reviewed 28 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a wonderful stay for a week in 'The Retreat.' The apartment was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Jo and Mark's thoughtfull attention to detail meant we had everything we needed. They were wonderful hosts; nothing was too much trouble and we even had a lovely cream tea waiting for us on our arrival. The accommodation is up a big hill from the main car park, but please don't be put off by this as it was no problem to drive the car up to load and unload. We found a gentle plod up the hill no problem at all each day. The views from our balcony were wonderful and we could wonder down into the harbour to enjoy many delightful pubs and restaurants. Lots of the pubs have live entertainment on in the evenings, we really enjoyed an evening watching and singing along to the fisherman's choir. Overall we enjoyed our stay immensely and hope to return soon.

Management Response

Hello Paul,
Thanks for taking the time to review us. We are very sorry you experienced problems with the wifi. When you told us about it, we got you connected and asked you to let us know if there were any further problems. You did not come back to us, so we assumed it was resolved. I did not say that you could only get a connection in the kitchen - this clearly would not be acceptable. I said that we had recently had a new router installed and that I personally had only checked the wifi in the kitchen, but as no other guests had mentioned a problem, we assumed everything was still fine. On reading your review I went into The Retreat to check the wifi, and was able to connect instantly in the living room as well as the kitchen, so I really do not understand what the problem was. However, if you had told us you were having further problems, we could have got it sorted for you immediately. Now you have brought the matter to our attention, we have today ordered a wifi booster so hopefully there will be no further issues. We want all our guests to have a lovely time, so we are very sorry that this matter went unresolved when you were here. We are glad you enjoyed your holiday apart from this.
Best wishes, Jo and Mark

“Perfect”
Reviewed 31 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Great apartment in great location... Well equipped and 2 little outdoor spaces were well utilised. Highly recommend staying here instead of Looe, much more quaint and less touristy, plus looe is just 10 minutes away (by car) or a nice few hour walk along the coast. Jo and Mark were lovely and couldn't be more accommodating, highly recommend
