I stayed at Hotel Penzance when I was house-hunting in Penzance, and for a holiday with a friend: three times by myself and once in a twin room with a friend. Once in a room overlooking the car park, twice in a room overlooking the bay and once in a room overlooking the bay and the Town. Although the Hotel is very convenient for the rail station and town, it was quiet in all of these rooms, so good for restful sleep.
The housekeeping is exemplary, more than clean, well cared for, which makes the whole experience of being there a pleasure and relaxing. Staff around when you need them and more than helpful. Also able to just spend time in the comfortable sitting rooms reading or on your laptop (or they will lend you one). The afternoon tea with little cakes is so civilised and welcome after a day out. Restaurant serves food practically all day, and it's lovely. The service and attitude of the staff is top flight, to everyone; toddlers, teenagers, singles, octogenerians.
Breakfasts are wonderful, lots of choice and excellent cooked breakfasts, especially recommend the smoked haddock and poached egg which was perfection. When I stayed in the wintertime the sunrise over the bay at breakfast was beautiful. I stayed at Hotel Penzance in total for about a month.
