Its a bit pricey for the facilities that it offers..The hotel is quite old and rooms clearly reflects the age. They have kept it clean though and all the towels and bed are very clean. Location is about 10mins walk from the station and is very near to the high street. Breakfast and other items are priced high. Had to... More

I have stayed in this hotel on the 18/04 with the family, unfortunately. The room was overall very bad, with old settings, with bad smell and completely run down, the carpet was so dirty that I just couldn't stay without shoes on to give and idea. The bed and towels were clean and the staff was friendly. Certainly won't stay... More

The location cannot be faulted however, this must be the only justification for the price. Some of the money could do with being invested on the place and maybe some staff training would be a good idea. Whilst I don't expect staff to have attended charm school, basic manners and a smile now and again, would be the minimum you... More

We stayed at the Lugger for a week, leaving the day after Boxing Day. Our room was large and clean and had an amazing view of the sea. The night of the highest waves -- Dec. 23. -- this view was spectacular as the surf reached all the way to our second floor window. The room also had comfortable beds... More

We booked the Hotel as it was one of only three available for boxing day, also it was close to the Cornish Pirates rugby ground. We were greeted as we arrived at 2:30pm to be told the restaurant was closing at 5pm and bar at 6:30pm we were told this was because "it's our Christmas you know". We called the... More

We arrived on a wet and stormy Sunday night, thankful to be off the dark, rain-soaked and unfamiliar roads. Easy to find on any night, it is the only hotel on the promenade (seafront walk or esplanade), with strings of coloured lights strung over the entrance. A friendly greeting at the large and well lit open foyer door, then up... More

We stayed at the Lugger Hotel this weekend for a friends wedding which was amazing. The hotel was the location for the main meal and the evening reception. The food was of the highest standard, I have had some Carvery's in my time but my god that food was amazing - that much so we went all the way back... More

I had previously read of some reviews of the Lugger Hotel in Penzance. I though, Oh my what have I let my self in for. I was going for my God daughters wedding. Well, all I can say is all of the bad press and comments are unjustified. What a brilliant team they have there. They are friendly, polite and... More

Had a great time staying here the food was fantastic. We had a buffet that was supplied by the hotel and all the different items were delicious. Great location right on the front with a short walk to the centre. The sea was very rough on arrival and you could hear the waves crashing on the front which was great... More
