We have just returned from a fantastic Mother's Day lunch. The food was delicious and the atmosphere is just great. Howie the manager, is always welcoming and his sense of humour is just hilarious and he delights in friendly banter which is very entertaining - a good all round host which compliments the hotel. Thanks Howie and all your staff,... More

We stayed three nights at the Union Hotel and it was the perfect place to stay in Penzance. The hotel added to the charm of the city. We arrived a Saturday and were treated to live Jazz in the pub area and it was wonderful. We stayed in a large room with a water view. Howie, the Manager, and the... More

Only stayed one night but room was spacious, clean & very reasonably priced. Food was good, wholesome & incredibly good value for money. Location was perfect for central town & the staff were attentive, humorous and courteous. Ok the hotel decor slightly dated but if you look past that at the fabulous architecture you will be as enthralled by this... More

The Union Hotel was ideal for my friends and I, centrally located at very reasonable cost. The Manager and his staff were most attentive and friendly. Would have no hesitation in returning to the hotel. T.Rees.

This is an ancient, historic building full of ancient and modern artifacts, placed in the heart of ancient historic Penzance. Look beyond the slightly tired furnishings and enjoy the extraordinary furniture, art works and architecture. Visit the oldest and most fascinating quarter of an important part of Britain;s history. And the food's good, the service is good and the rooms... More

This once fine hotel has been allowed to become a second rate dive. The rooms are tatty and in places dirty. The whole place needed a complete overhaul 10 years ago. The manager is rude and unhelpful, there was a wedding booked for the time of our visit, the car park had been allowed to fill to the point where... More

The hotel is very old fashion, with its dated furnishings, decoration etc but it is a decent place to stay. It is reasonably priced. We had a room with a view of the bay, which was a good extra. (Could even see St Micheal's Mount).Not enough tables for breakfast, and some people had to wait or were asked to share... More

Old-fashioned in the nicest way, this hotel can trace its origins back to Elizabethan times. Paintings, statuary and other memorabilia reflect the building's theatrical associations. My room was both warm and spacious, and the congenial owner and his staff ensured that my 4-night stay was a most agreeable one.

Stayed here for just one night before going to the Isles of Scilly. Very charmng historical hotel, such a welcome change from the boring chain hotels. Room clean and lovely fluffly towels. Right on the main street with easy access to shopping or a walk by the sea. We were on the second floor with a view of the harbour... More
