Our second consecutive year to this hotel. We initially chose it for its position near the train & bus stations (convenient to explore the region) We returned because the hotel is so well run. The breakfast menu is excellent, well served and well presented.Tom is a proud Cornishman and very proud of his family hotel. He's very friendly and will... More

Views of Penzance bay and St. Michaels Mount are wonderful. The staff was terrific and the breakfast array and quality couldn't have been better. It's a short walk to downtown Penzance, and not far from the A30 highway and a fueling station. Reserve the window seat for breakfast--St. Michaels Mount seems a stones throw away, if you have a good... More

We have stayed at Mount Royal for the past seven years which speaks for itself. Tom and his lovely wife are delightful hosts where everything is done to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The breakfast menu is second to none. We have booked again for next year in this wonderful period property.

This was our first trip to Cornwall and the Mount Royal matched up to what we had seen on Trip Advisor when choosing a hotel. Family run hotel now being run by Tom and Melinda who are the third generation. We were greeted by John, Tom's Dad, who showed us to our room, it had the wow factor about it... More

Stay at this B&B was undoubtedly one of the most wonderful experience in abroad for me. Beautifully decorated rooms and furnishings, most friendly staff I have ever met, and splendid view of Mount bay. I was right about selecting Cornwall and this B&B at the end of my travel across England. Cornwall is an attractive place to visit. I do... More

Mount Royal has really lived up to our expectation. Very good location for exploring Cornwall... The interior is kept in a very traditional design, cozy, spacious and very clean. Breakfast and service are excellent. We arrived late and were even served a lovely light dinner in our room, which is not normally provided! The staff are extremely kind and attentive,... More

We had a lovely stay at the Mount Royal. The service was outstanding (thanks, Tom!) and the view from our window was fantastic. We were looking out over the bay towards St Michaels Mount and the hotel supplies binoculars for looking out for wildlife, including dolphins. We weren't lucky enough to see any dolphins, but enjoyed watching some of the... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights this August. It is a nice place, but a bit too old fashioned for us (young couple). Everything - decoration wise - feels like it has been there since 1960. The room and bathroom were both clean though. Tiny shower, tiny basin, no window / good airing in bathroom. We are... More

We are an AA 4 star accredited establishment and all of our facilities have been annually inspected, approved and commended by an AA inspectorate as part of the national quality scheme for hotels and bed and breakfasts.

We chose to spend a long weekend here to celebrate our silver wedding and were very pleased that we'd chosen the Mount Royal (having first considered a trendy little boutique hotel further into town).
