We stopped by for breakfast. They did seem quite busy with hotel residents but a table was quickly cleared for us. Good choice of traditional breakfast items. We both ordered 'the full Cornish'. Service was prompt and polite and the breakfast was well cooked. Really good value, I would call there again.

A very convenient hotel in the centre of Penzance. Basic rooms & great breakfast with a good English pub atmosphere for dinner at night. Great service. Parking a bit of a problem but you can park in the Railway station. Central to town & the harbour. Good access to the centre of town

My second time staying at the Longboat as part of my commute between France and the Scilly Isles. The accommodation is adequate for the price. What makes this place excellent though are the front of house staff such as 'John' who have a great attitude, nothing is too much trouble and really make you feel welcome. Will return again purely...

I stayed here for a single night on my way from the Scilly Isles back to London. I chose it because it's right next to the station and so handy to roll out in the morning onto the train to Paddington. I actually had few hopes for this pub because it was just a practical choice. Certainly the long narrow... More

This was my second stay at this hotel, the first some years ago. It is clear refurbishment has been undertaken improving the experience. The hotel has a large well stocked bar and provides a good range of food which is freshly prepared; my "Catch of the Day" was very good. My twin room was comfortable and clean enjoying en suite...

9 of us went out. Majority unhappy with quality of meal. Two people had to send starter back twice! The chicken coujons were over cooked and only 4 very small pieces for £6. Cook tried to say it was because Chicken was fresh, didn't look it. The main meal had cold veg, steak pie very nice but dry used gravy... More
