The UK tourist industry is let down by so much accommodation that is dowdy, tatty, bodge-maintained and just plain dirty – and I’m sorry to say the Longboat Inn is one of them. It makes me feel guilty to accept the hospitality of an inn and then criticise it, but I guess that’s why Trip Advisor exists so that others... More

We stayed for one night in what could be described as poor accommodation. The bed base covers had stains on and clearly needed washing. The double bed was two singles pushed together and the matress cover did not fit, so came off in the night. There was a lot of mold around the shower, the carpet near the bathroom was... More

The reception area for the hotel was part of a pleasant large bar area on the ground floor. Having paid for the three nights we were booked for, we were directed to our rooms upstairs. On the way we passed through the sitting room on the first floor which had a big window with a view down the opposite street... More

Stayed here before and after walking the Cornish Coastal Path. Location is excellent, just behind the train station and on the Coastal Path. Although the room was a little outdated, for the price it is excellent value. Food in the restaurant was fine and the Vegetarian sausage at breakfast time was the best I have ever tasted. Nice old fashioned... More

Price is fine and the hotel was clean. Breakfast was also good and the staff friendly. Poor score mainly due to plastic sheets - terrible sweaty nights sleep and for that reason much better to go elsewhere - shame really....

Stayed at longboat inn and found the atmosphere brilliant. Ryan was extremely helpful and being a leeds United fan made things even better! There is a side door which made access for luggage good and this made things way easier than struggling pass everyone which usually happens in other places. The room had lots of plug sockets for charging all... More

Food excellent, great variety with 'specials' which were very good value. We really enjoyed our stay at the Longboat and Penzance is a great base for... More
