We are pleased to announce that The Fieldhead Hotel in Looe has experienced its busiest summer season to date, after an appearance earlier this year on Channel 5’s ‘The Hotel Inspector’.
We can now safely say that we have succeeded in revamping our 15-bedroom hotel, which enjoys stunning views across Looe Bay, while sticking to our ‘traditional’ ethos and very high service standards.
The combined approach has resulted in an extremely busy period between May and September, with our loyal regulars joined by a wave of new guests keen to experience The Fieldhead Hotel at its best.
Occupancy rates are up 35% on the same period last year, indicating a dramatic upsurge in business which looks set to continue.
Beyond the summer rush, bookings have been coming in thick and fast for the rest of the year, obliging us to implement a Privileged Booking Scheme for long-standing regulars. This is because we want to thank our guests who come back year after year, and who stuck with us during the quieter times. We can’t let those guests loose out now that we are so busy!
The scheme allows regulars to book their favourite rooms and dates years in advance, without the need for a deposit until nearer the time.
The influx in bookings came after hotel guru Alex Polizzi visited for the popular Channel 5 show, revealing that the hotel had all the makings of a great destination.
Although Alex and Julian had some rocky moments, since filming we have taken on board the majority of The Hotel Inspector’s suggestions, redecorating bedrooms and communal areas, simplifying the booking system and updating the website.
The revamp includes five Superior Rooms with private balconies, king-size beds, modern décor and comfy robes and slippers.
We have always known that our guests appreciate the attention to detail and personal service they enjoy here at The Fieldhead Hotel. Now that we have modernised other aspects of our offering, more and more people are trying us out and rebooking, so we must be on the right track!
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Visit Cornwall and Looe Tourism Information Centre for their support and encouragement.
