We had a short mid-week break at the Hotel Penzance. The room was comfortable, reasonably sized with a good view but what elevated the hotel from the ordinary was the friendly, helpful and efficient staff.

A wonderful stay for my mother's 85th Birthday. Nothing too much trouble, service great and the pool was fun. Rooms are well appointed clean and spacious, the choice for breakfast was comprehensive. Staff were always helpful and courteous. We will be going back.

To begin, we were in Penzance waiting for the 9:30 Riviera Sleeper to London and needed a spot for dinner and a place leave our bags while returning the rental car before 6pm. For dining, we selected the attached Bay Restaurant (separately reviewed) and asked online if the hotel would check our bags. They couldn't have been nicer or more... More

A friendly hotel. Our room was smaller than anticipated but the shower was excellent and the view was lovely. There were other lounges to sit in downstairs with free afternoon beverages and snacks and an excellent outside balcony. The only bar was incorporated with the restaurant. Food is very good. Staff are brilliant. Would stay there again.

This hotel was beautiful. The pictures online don't even do it justice. The staff went out of their way to make us comfortable and were very welcoming. Special shout out to Thomas who helped direct our hire car into our reserved spot, and was extremely helpful getting our bags to/from our room. We were on the top floor, so we... More

The hotel is a short, hilly walk from a commercial section and the train station. The rooms are large, comfortable, well lit, ample storage for your clothing. I am writing this in a comfortable chair with ottoman in a bay window area with stunning views of the harbor and St. Michael's Mount. There is also a table so you can... More

A short break in West Cornwall Sep 9th through 12th with plans to do daytime walks both west and east on the south coast path as well as bus/train excursions to St Ives and other local spots of special interest made this place an obvious choice given its location close to town, the railway/bus station and path.

We had an excellent meal at the Hotel penzance with a table overlooking the sea. We ate outside on the verandah as the weather was lovely. The meal was excellent and so was the wine. Parking was not so easy. The hotel's car park should have been a non starter if only due to the incline. I attemped the only... More

We stayed overnight 9 and 10 September. Very welcoming and pleasant staff, nothing too much trouble. We arrived too early to be shown our room so after coffee and pastries we walked around Penzance, car left in hotel car park.

Hotel communal areas very pleasant but our room was very small and the bathroom was tired. The toilet didn't flush very well. Overall I would say it was more 3*. Also be prepared to be challenged when parking your car!
