About Us

An Award Winning Company

The Portbyhan Hotel is situated in an unrivalled position right in the heart of Looe, allowing guests to relish the panoramic views of the vibrant harbour with only a short stroll into Looe town centre.

The Edwards family, who operate an award-winning holiday company in South Wales, purchased the hotel in June 2013 and have since invested over £2.1 Million in a full-refurbishment of the exterior, bedrooms, restaurant, bar and public areas. These renovations, the location and the excellent services that the hotel offers have all contributed to the Portbyhan Hotel recently winning “Best Individual Hotel” at the prestigious National Coach Tourism Awards.

Beautiful Scenery & Surroundings

The historic twin towns of East and West Looe are located in South East Cornwall and offer everything from beautiful sandy beaches, accessible walking routes, fishing trips, unique boutiques, restaurants and bars. Further along the coast enjoy the old world charm of picturesque Polperro through to the sheltered river valleys of the Tamar and Fowey.

Whether you come for the culture and history or just to enjoy the beach and the sea, the small coastal town of Looe has plenty to offer everyone.

Our History

The Portbyhan Hotel underwent a £2.1 million refurbishment back in 2013 & 2015 at the hands of the Edwards family from South Wales. The Edwards family own and operate an award winning Holiday Company in South Wales which celebrated its 90th birthday in 2015.

The Edwards family purchased the hotel in June 2013 and have since invested time and effort into the property to make it the award winning 3* hotel it is today.
