My partner and I went for a long weekend break to the Union Hotel. What a fantastic weekend we had. All the staff were so attentive, rooms were really clean, food was really good. Try the fish dishes. Locally caught. We fully intend to visit again soon

We needed a cheap, one night stay as we had tickets for the Minack Theatre close by. We got what we payed for; the room was rather tired and there was a musty smell in the air as we entered our corridor. The beds were clean but the kettle had to be boiled on the floor as this was the... More

I think you could either love it or hate it. It is quirky and full of character and a few bodge jobs here and there. It is not a travel lodge. Room with a sea view at the top a lovely room would recommend. As for all the moaners - it is only £70.00 a night, really good value. Go... More

The Union is full of character and history. Walking around it is endlessly fascinating: you find a portrait of Napoleon, a death mask of Lord Nelson, models of sailing ships and rooms full of French antiques. It's like staying in a stately home! The rooms are comfortable and individual. Mine had a fantastic view of the harbour, the sea and... More

What a rude old man for a receptionist! A terribly unkempt annoyed old man told us off (including my elderly in-laws) the moment we stepped into the hotel. He snapped at all of us & we never got a chance to explain that our email sent 3 weeks ago never got replied although we informed them how many children were... More

I stayed here for two nights as I was working locally. Chosen for it's location, I was looking forward to staying in a historic building in the centre of Penzance Sadly, my expectations weren't met. Firstly, my room was tired, musty and dirty: cobwebs adorned the walls, hairs in the bath and the soft furnishings torn (the bed valance was... More
