We stayed in this architectural gem on our way back from the Scilly Isles. Everything was to our liking. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast delicious. As it is a pub I could hear voices in the Bar below which gradually became less as midnight approached. Far from stopping me sleeping it added to any other... More

Travelling on the ferry to the Isles of Scilly meant that we needed to stay overnight in Penzance. The Yacht Inn was the perfect place for us – just opposite the departure Quay. And it takes dogs (£10 per night). The building looks like a beautiful art-deco yacht club overlooking the sea, but is actually a good pub, which seems... More

Had a lovely 2 night stay here, Stopped en route to the Scillies. A perfect location for what we wanted. The Scillian berth is 2 minutes walk away. The staff are all very helpful and seem to know what is best. Penzance has some lovely quint and historic pubs. Location of pub gives you best of both, Sea front (shame... More

Stoopped over night en route to the Scillies. A perfect location for what we wanted. The staff are all very helpful and seem to know their trade so the serrvice was efficient and friendly. The food is interesting and of a good standard - good ingredients and well cooked and presented. Breakfast was excellent. The room was cosy but was... More

Had a lovely 2 night stay here, it's not the latest decor, but spotlessly clean and lovely bed linen and towels. Didn't eat here apart from breakfast which was lovely. All the staff very helpful and polite. Noise from pub didn't disturb, although of a weekend I imagine would be louder. Will definitely be back!

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.
