We've just spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel. Nicely appointed room with a great view over the rooftops of Penzance and over to the harbour. Just wish the weather had been good enough to use the pool and gardens, but we did sit out on the verandah after breakfast on the final day and it was a great spot.... More

On top of that comments from receptionist " If you don't like our place go next door" is not best way to welcome guest. Entrance is so concealed that we... More

The journey up the steep hill pays off when you enter the restaurant as the views are amazing! The staff in the bar, restaurant & housekeeping were very friendly. The breakfast was really nice with a wide range of options

Having stayed for the third time at Hotel Penzance, I can recomend it again. Breakfast outside on their verandah on a August morning is hugely enjoyable. Rooms are very comfortable. Staff are courteous and a room change (my choice) was managed very efficiently.

We stayed for three nights in a room overlooking the Harbour. From the time we arrived the staff were excellent. We enjoyed our room and the Bay restaurant is something special. Great food and staff. Well worth the visit and highly recommended for a great escape.
