Best afternoon tea we've ever had. All freshly made, nothing bought in or made off site. Plenty of cakes too. Sandwichs were full of their fillings, none of that scraping of cream cheese and one slice of salmon. The ham looked and tasted as though they had cooked the whole joint and carved it off the bone, amazing. Hotel and... More

Nice View over the bay and Michael's Mount. Small but adequate menu. We tried some Cornish white wine they recommended & it was great. I would definitely go back there.

Used to be faultless, but over the last few years it's steadily gone downhill. Steak was supposed to be rare and it was medium, which is inexcusable at these prices. Staff seemed to be going through the motions whereas they used to be much friendlier. It's still a very good restaurant, just overpriced for what you get, and so disappointing... More

Excellant food and service. A very enjoyable evening with great views over Penzance. Prices are fairly reasonable although possibly not for those on a tight budget.

We were a party of 4 yesterday evening and we enjoyed the evning as we always do at the Bay. The starters were reasonable but my order of a very rare steak seemed impossible for the chef. It was medium to well done. The waiter - who was pleasant and polite- took it away and brought another within 5 minutes... More
