This is my third stay at this 19thC Inn and, once again, it was a pleasant one. Having read some of the other reviews, people seem to forget that this is a family run Inn and not a hotel and what they do they do extremely well. The room was a good size with double and a single beds (I... More

My first impressions were that the hotel seemed to be staffed entirely by teenagers. We were told by a young lady to leave our bags in the middle of the corridor while she gave us a tour of the hotel followed by various do's and dont's. I felt more like a school boy being told off by a prefect than... More

The Commercial does not have all the facilities you'd expect in a 5-star hotel - but it doesn't have %-star prices either. Overall, it's very good value for money. On arrival, a very friendly chap showed me all round the inn and up to my room, almost begging to carry my very light bag. The room was smallish but very... More

This was a late decision to stay a night in West Cornwall, prior to onward travel to the Isles of Scilly the next day. I'm so glad I chose The Commercial; it was easy to get to on the bus, (£4 single ticket), having travelled to Penzance on the train. The bus drops passengers just a short, flat walk from... More

Just back from a really wonderful stay in St. Just in Penwith. This little hotel warrants 5 stars, not that it compares with the top hotels of the world in luxury, but because it is perfect for this perfect tiny village on the Cornwall peninsula. We had such a personalized friendly welcome and our room -number 4- was spacious, airy... More
