My other half and myself were in Penzance on business and decided to visit the Longboat for our evening meal. My husband ordered the scampi which he said was very nice and I ordered the Newlyn haddock in a creamy sauce. I was asked by the barman what my choice of ' withs' we're so I asked for potatoes and...

The room was cold upon arrival but after the radiator had been switched on the room was warm with in 15 minutes. Lovely comfy bed and plenty of towels provided. The shower wasn't great. But everything was fine. Very welcoming downstairs although because of the traveling we had done not much social time was had. Breakfast was very nice

During a visit to Penzance for a few days last week, on a cold wet Saturday morning we decided we'd have a pub lunch, and hopefully catch a sky football game. We were recommended to visit the Longboat, a pub that I last visited many years ago. From the moment we entered the front door we were welcomed by a... More

Visited in September, towards the end of the Summer season. It would be easy to be harsh on this hotel, given the quality of the accommodation. BUT it's obvious that this hotel is trying very hard to give good value and does have a certain charm. The breakfast was passable.

We were a party of 11 people and this was perfect for us! Rooms basic but clean, with everything we needed, staff extremely hard-working, efficient and friendly, food and drink very good, location perfect! If you're looking for somewhere for a large group, this is ideal.

Basic but perfectly fine inn that is DIRECTLY across from the train and bus stations. Not luxurious by any means but clean and totally fine for a night or two. Right on one of the main shopping streets in Penzance, as well. Good food and drink too!

The staff are exceptional, The cooking absolutely delicious. The rooms adequate for holiday stays and the beds so comfortable. Rooms tidy, towels soft clean and dry and replaced daily. No complaints and cant understand the complaints given. At the price a real deal. For the moaning minnies try Buckingham Palace! This place is more than worth its value and deserves... More

Our room was very small with 2 small single beds. Mine was probably the worst bed I have ever tried to sleep in. It creaked very loudly every time I moved and felt like it was about to collapse under me. The ensuite was also very cramped with an unpleasant smell and extremely noisy plumbing. The breakfast was ok and... More

The room did what it said on the tin, Not the Ritz but clean (enough) and comfortable. The included breakfast was more than enough and very tasty. That said, the pub downstairs is what makes the place and I would stay again just for that. Friendly locals, great sport on the telly, reasonably priced drink, and great food. Food was... More
