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’.
Owners Julian and Gill Peck have succeeded in revamping their 15-bedroom hotel, which enjoys stunning views across Looe Bay, while sticking to their claim to be a ‘traditional’ hotel with very high service standards.
The combined approach has resulted in an extremely busy period between May and September, with the hotel’s 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, the hotel says bookings have been coming briskly for the rest of the year, obliging the Pecks to implement a ‘Privileged Booking Scheme’ for long-standing regulars.
Julian Peck explained: “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 lose out now that we are so busy.”
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 Polizzi and Peck had some rocky moments, since filming the majority of The Hotel Inspector’s suggestions have been taken on board – redecorating bedrooms and communal areas, simplifying the booking system and updating the website.
