We ate here in January with the kids on a holiday from New Zealand and loved the food. The staff were friendly and the food was great. Kids even eat free during holidays as well. We have eaten in quite a few pubs on out holiday but this was the best one. Thank you guys

Only had a one night stop here and was a little concerned with some reviews. However,we found the staff very friendly and helpful , the room was clean and comfortable. We had our evening meal in the hotel, it arrived quickly and was very tasty. The following morning we had a full Cornish,also very good. Would we go back? Yes.

Stayed for 2 nights. The rooms were clean and well equipped. The staff were friendly and efficient. The breakfast was excellent. My only complaint would be the mattresses were lumpy and uncomfortable. My other group members had the same problem in their rooms. Which is a shame because we had great stay here apart from that.

My family and I went to The Longboat for Christmas dinner this year and I was pleasantly surprised! The staff could not have done more for us - excellent service, friendly and always had a smile. So welcoming! My mother, being vegan, struggles when eating out however the staff had gone out of their way to prepare vegan options for... More

Located on the main street, great for exploring Penzance, but also easy access to Marazion, St. IVES and all other towns by car, bus or train. The room was fine, nothing fancy, a bit worn, and they did forget to clean one day out of three. The breakfast, included in the room fee, was good, a typical English meal of... More

For good value this is a great place to stay for a short break or stop over. The staff were friendly and the ensuite room was clean and more than adequate. Remember! this is a pub with rooms so do not expect perfection but accept a better standard of quality against the tariff charged which by the way included a... More

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
