We booked the hotel because of its close proximity to the local rugby ground (Cornish Pirates) little realising that is was so close to both the ground and the sea front.
For a change we travelled by rail to Penzance and th hotel is arond a 15 minute walk from the station. No wierd directions, just walk along the beach front!
The hotel is typical english seaside design, big house frontage painted white of course to keep the summer heat at bay! In other words neat and tidy.
The reception is small, next to the bar which appeared well stocked, but like most hotels they know how to charge for items that we all know we could have brought a bottle for with just four drinks!
Our room was lovely and clean, no matter where you tried to pick fault it was very difficult to find such. Our only critism is that the shower in the bathroom was a little weak! We mentioned this to the manager on check out and he apologised saying that it was being looked at and would on our next visit be vastly improved.
We only ate breakfast, which was freshly cooked and served quickly. Breakfast for us finished too early, that being 9.30 on every day of the week! No real lie in on a Saturday or Sunday here!
Overall though a great hotel and one we would happily return too.....if they had better showers and later breakfast finish times!

- Located on the sea front in Penzance, Cornwall, the Beachfield Hotel offers breathtaking panoramic views of Mount's Bay, from The Lizard to Newlyn Harbour with St Michael's Mount glitteringly prominent at centre stage. A Victorian building dating from the 1860s and standing on grounds that were once fields and dunes where fishermen dried their nets, our hotel has long been a favourite for those who know Penzance well. Much of the interior has recently been modernised and refurbished to a high standard. ... more less
