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

This pub / hotel is round the corner from Penzance Station and therefore very handy for a train traveler. Room was very well appointed with a four poster bed giving it real charm. Breakfast was delicious, I can particularly recommend the homemade vegetarian sausages! Hotel also offers a great left luggage service. Thanks to all.

We only had occasion to use the left luggage facility here but received a very professional service from start to finish from very friendly and efficient staff.I would phone ahead to ensure they have space for your luggage though - no left luggage facility at train station and they were turning people away the day we were there. Would highly... More

An historic hotel, you need to be prepared for the English penchant for multiple corridors, stairs and strange noises from the bathroom fixtures. We thoroughly enjoyed the old-world charm of this hotel. And were especially impressed with the friendliness of the staff, beginning with Chris, a man-of-all-trades. He remained calm despite a mix-up with our bill and with belligerent customers.... More

We have just come back from a week's holiday in Cornwall and stayed at The Longboat. Great location, two minutes walk from Railway Station and 3 minutes walk from Bus Station. Bar area very pleasant, we couldn't fault the food, especially the fish dishes - congratulations to the kitchen staff! All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Away from... More

I came home yesterday after staying at the Longboat for 6 nights; not only is it conveniently situated for the railway station, the main shopping street in Penzance and the quay (and also the Mazey Day celebrations!), my room (if a little eccentric in its layout due to its shape!) was clean and pleasant and the bed was comfortable (only...
