My Sea View single room had a good vantage point of the bay and (looking to the left) St. Michaels Mount. The room was not exactly spacious but not cramped, adequate for an overnight stay. Everything was quite clean if a bit aged; in fact the hotel itself has an old world style & charm about it. The restaurant served... More

We stayed in the hotel as a family with our son and a little dog. The room was overlooking the sea and was excellent: grand and spacious. The bathroom facilities were very good. We had a superb long weekend. Penzance is very conveniently located for driving to St Ives, Lands End, St Michael's Mount and a lot of other attractions.... More

So our daily workouts were scheduled into our visit ;) The other problem was the Wi-Fi it was absolutely horrible The worse we came across during our entire... More

Booked for one night at the weekend and nothing wrong, I guess it just missed the wow factor. I paid top whack because it was one of the last rooms available in Penzance and if it ihad been cheaper I guess I could have come away happier. Basically I feel I spend too much for what it was ...

The location could not be better in Penzance. The rooms at the front have a spectacular view over the sea, from St Michael's Mount to the East to the Mousehole headland to the West. Always something going on on the water to look at. Flat walk of about 400yards to some good restaurants near the harbour and then a short... More

I was staying at a nearby hotel, and decided to eat one evening at the Queens Hotel for a change. The evening menu was displayed at Reception, so I was able to see what kind of food was available before making a booking. I booked a table for that evening with a very pleasant young man on Reception. When I... More

We booked this trip through Wowcher which at £99 for a two night stay for two of us, was a good price. It was a very large, imposing hotel right on the sea front, and had wonderful views of the sea. We upgraded to a sea view room with four poster bed, and it was absolutely beautiful. It was really... More
