We stayed here on a 3 night dinner, bed and breakfast package between Christmas and New Year, and had a lovely time. Breakfast each morning was a delight, with a wide range to choose from, which included smoked salmon, trout, smoked haddock, traditional Cornish breakfast, full continental, etc etc. The views from the restaurant are also worth a mention.

My husband and I spent 3 nights here over Christmas, and had a lovely stay. The rooms are comfortably sized with good linens, down comforter. Bathroom had good water pressure, soft white towels, nice toiletries. Everything was spotlessly clean. Rooms are made up daily. The service at the hotel was significantly better than what I have become used to in... More

Dear Guests, Thank you for your detailed review and that you enjoyed your Christmas stay with us.

We booked the Hotel Penzance as part of a Groupon deal. Myself and my husband really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very helpful and the room was lovely with a sea view. The food in the Bay Restaurant was outstanding. The best scallops I have ever had and the steak was cooked beautifully. Will return.

We have just returned from a fabulous weekend break. Our room had lovely views of the harbour and St Michaels Mount, the bed was so very comfortable and the restaurant food was amazing. The staff were very knowledgeable about the local area and couldn't have been more helpful. We would certainly recommend the hotel very highly.

Very nice, good attention to detail all round. Made very welcome. Fantastic comfortable bedroom with en suite. Within easy reach of the town and shops. All staff were very helpful and meals were presented well. Well worth spending that little bit extra for the small touches you get.
