The bar, restaurant and pool were great and the views really stunning. We ate dinner outside on the last evening and looking across to the sea made the meal very special, the heaters... More

Hotel Penzance is spectacularly situated on a steep hill just to the east of the town centre. Thus it is very convenient for the train terminus and bus station (we do not drive) and serves as an excellent base for touring the Penwith peninsula. It also necessitates a brisk walking exercise infinitely superior to and much less frustrating than finding... More

The view is of the kitchen roof and a brick wall. Cooked breakfast was ok and on the small side but... More

Lovely hotel; beautiful views, friendly staff & gorgeous cat. Whilst this hotel is on the more expensive side of the market; I feel it is warranted. Everything was perfect, beautiful setting, delicious breakfast & room whilst fairly small had all you need plus stunning views. We were impressed. Thanks, Marion & Paul from Adelaide

I loved this hotel. Very friendly staff and a great view over the sea. The garden is nice, the food fantastic and as an animal lover I loved Jerry - the house cat. But if you are allergic to cats there may be a problem. I recommend this hotel to everyone but be prepared for the hills!

We just spent two delightful, very relaxing nights in a room with an ocean view. I spent hours staring out the window, watching the shifting colors of the sea, the clouds. No complaints at all. Close to the sea but on the side of a hill, so no traffic noise. Excellent mattress, spacious bathroom and room, very nicely furnished. Lovely... More

Not the cheapest hotel in Penzance, but you do get what you pay for. Our room was superb, the atmosphere friendly and the facilities good. The food in the restaurant was excellent. Only two minor gripes: the service in the restaurant was not up to the standard of the food - there are ample staff for the number of tables,... More
