Damp smelling 3rd floor. Room shabby and old. 14inch old-skool TV and broken remote, bit rubbish... Place is in need of an update. I travel a huge amount with work and stay all over the country. This was in the bottom few I've been too. Not sure if I just had bad luck with my room as other reviews suggest... More

Other reviewers have moaned about the steps – if you don’t like this ask for a room on the 1st floor?. I even managed to get parking (it... More

This is the first time I've left a hotel review but felt that the Union Hotel deserved one. I've just spent the weekend in this lovely quirky hotel. My best friend had his wedding reception here, we spent 2 nights in a very comfortable, clean, tidy and organised room. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Howie the manager... More

What a find! Lovely old hotel steeped in history on the most interesting street in Penzance. Its probably more like a B+B style accomodation and is basically a massive old house so there are no lifts only steep carpeted stairs that might put some people off. Our room had a view over the bay and a decent double sized bed... More

Stayed one night recently.Very friendly welcome on arrival.Room warm and clean.A bit small but it was a single room after all.Was leaving early next morning before breakfast started but the man who checked me in put together a continental breakfast and left it up in the room for me.Would have no problem going back.

Have just spent a couple of nights at the hotel and loved it this is a listed building so has retained a lot of its originality which gives it the lived in look which we like everyone was very friendly and the food was first class our room was on the third floor and as there is no lift it... More

Great stay, lashings of hot water for deep baths, comfy bed. Cooked breakfasts served with efficiency and a smile. Really friendly staff (especially Howie the manager). Parking, which for Penzance is a bonus! If there was one downside it was the coffee at breakfast, Howie you need proper coffee! saying that, highly recommended and will definitely be staying again.

I personally didn't like this hotel/B&B, the Room stunk and I had to ask to be cleaned again, the staff working on the kitchen was really friendly, the bed was reasonably comfortable and the breakfast was great, wifi very good, but because of the state of the room I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
