Location is good, easy and cheap to park opposite. Check-in was a bit impersonal and not a good first impression. The dead plants in the stairwell were a nice touch. The room was clean and pretty well presented though and the view was excellent. Room 5. I could hear the bar straight away but wasn't too concerned as I would... More

We stayed here for 4 days in September. The location was perfect, centrally located in the heart of Penzance. The room, although not modern, was very clean with tea and coffee making facilities. The flat screen TV was fine, lots of available channels. Plenty of hot water in the shower. The WIFI was pretty weak but did work in the... More

Ok, I want to be fair here. The room is clean and functional, but nothing special. I was put in Room No. 2, which happens to be above the bar. The staff at check in and behind the bar were accommodating and friendly. The first night the fire alarm went off at 4 am. These things happen, but as I... More

Room was very comfortable and a great breakfast. Wifi was a bit patchy but otherwise an enjoyable place to stay. There are a few small restaurants if you walk along the coast and bit to get a good seafood meal.

I go down and stay here twice a year to see my family. It's always excellent, great breakfasts and staff that can't do enough for you. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Brilliant location for the station and Scillonian if you are going over to the islands.

My wife and I have just spent two nights at the Yacht Inn. We were very please with our accommodation Room 5 is an excellent view over the coastal area. The food was good value, well prepared and we were not left feeling hungry. We had both an evening meal and breakfasts. We would definitely recommend them and we would... More

Was in Penzance for a few days visiting partners parents and went in the Yacht Club 3 times. So friendly especially Mark and the barmaid on Wednesday lunchtime (Zoe?). Didn't have food but it all looked good and very reasonable prices. Would definitely eat there next time. Bar prices some of the best in Penzance and I would say it... More

We stayed for one night before travelling to Scillies on the Scillonian. The Yacht Inn just opposite Penzance Lido and is 5 minutes on foot from Penzance harbour, and has views across the bay. Good room sizes, clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly and the breakfasts are well catered, including for wheat free and gluten free diets. Easy flat walk... More

We stayed one night at the Yacht Inn en route to the Scillies. It was comfortable enough for a one night stay and our room was large by B&B standards. Wifi was not very strong in the room. Good bathroom with strong shower. We ate downstairs in the restaurant for dinner which had a good seafood selection but also offered... More

This is really an Inn which has several rooms let on a b&b basis. The photos of the rooms don't really do them justice - I thought they would be tiny but ours was big enough to put a spare bed down (supplied in the room) if needed. Our room was spotless and well presented and the bathroom was a... More
