We went up to the room and the most disgusting smell from the bathroom it was urine mixed with wet paint and it wouldn't go with deodrant sprayed and... More

Another great stay at The Longboat Hotel. Friendly, helpful staff. Great homely food, Great rooms. A wide selection of drinks makes it a good choice of pub. I cant praise the staff enough. The Longboat is ideally located very close to the train and bus station. If your travelling to Penzance its a perfect pub/hotel to try. Ryan has a... More

We had a Saturday night stay here. This is a pub with rooms, not a hotel, but if you come expecting just that it ticks the boxes for an overnight stay. The room was very basic, in need of a bit of TLC/general maintenance and dated but clean; a little noisy until the pub had closed but then reasonably quiet... More

Ryan the duty manager was so kind and asked about our friends health every day. On arriving i had trouble with the stairs, with a bad leg it was a little hard,... More

My husband and I stayed there for one night, everywhere else was booked up in Penzance! The pub is totally geared towards theme and entertainment but sadly the standard of accommodation is left behind. Just basic things that one would not expect to find in their room on arrival eg. mould in the kettle, totally unusable, and obviously not checked,... More

The rooms are above the pub but we could not hear any noise. Our room decor was tired and I did have a problem that I had to bring to the staffs' attention but they immediately put it right and were very apologetic. We had been out all day so we decided to eat in the restaurant and we were... More

I spent a week at The Longboat with a group of eight and we found it had everything that we needed. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The location is terrific. It's very close to both the railway station and the bus station. And it's an easy walk to the coastal paths. The meals were great and there's a wonderful,... More

This friendly venue is located extremely close to the railway station. It is quite convenient, except for the fifty stairs to the third floor. There is no lift. The breakfast is included with the room, and is quite good with a variety of foods. The room was quite clean. I did not enjoy walking up and down all those stairs.
