we visited for tea after a day out on the train. we just called in without booking and ate in the bar, which we prefer anyway. There was just over half an hour wait, which was explained when we ordered due to us not having booked and it being busier than usual. The food was well worth the wait, cooked... More

This hotel is very conveniently located next to the coach/bus/rail hub. So ideal to save walking or taxi fares. The room was freshly decorated so I guess all the poor reviews about the place has since been rectified. However there was an odd smell as if a damp source hasn't yet been located. Other than that it was good. The... More

People complain about dirty hotels, I think that sometimes they are being a little picky. Not this time . I booked for 5 nights but did not complete my stay because the room, and particularly the bathroom was filthy, with mould and stray pubic hairs all over, . I wonder if that room had ever been cleaned at all since... More

While looking for somewhere to eat in Penzance we came across The Longboat, really impressive looking pub/hotel. Staff very friendly and welcoming, the bar is well laid out with a good selection of beers. We got our drinks and ordered food, two full Cornish breakfasts and one vegetarian. Food arrived quickly, well cooked but small portions. The sausage and mushrooms... More

Stayed here for one night this bank holiday weekend. Staff polite and helpful on check-in. Room was reasonable size on the first floor, beds fairly comfortable. Bathroom was small but had everything we needed. Room was very warm so had to keep the window open all night, this was not ideal as very busy road just outside and nightclub just... More

Me and my partner went here and had a Valentines meal, It was a 3 course meal that we had booked. The football was on in the background so it was a little bit rowdy.. The food was good but small portions and you had to pay quite a hefty price. I am giving it a rating of average as... More

Rooms are advertised as beautiful & refurbished, what a cruel joke! My room was dirty and very tired looking. Restaurant ok but nothing amazing about it, great fish & chips though. Good location. Would never stay there again.

Deceivingly looking like a nice old pub outside, the rooms are old and dirty. I was really tired and that was the only reason that made me finally get into bed, as the sheets looked really suspicious. When we got there they seemed really confused that somebody wanted to sleep there. I would never stop in Penzance again - the... More

Very close to the train station and OK for a stopover en route to somewhere but wouldn't want to stay more than a night. No evening meal available without a very long wait as a group of 12 had just come in so went elsewhere.As we were leaving the main bar area was flooding from the ceiling in numerous places... More

If you're heading to Penzance by train the hotel is perfect as it is a 2 minute walk from the station. Be aware - some rooms look out on to a nightclub, which can be quite noisy (we heard people throwing up outside at 2 in the morning on a Saturday night!) The food was average, but the staff were...
