We booked for Easter weekend at short notice and thus didn’t have much of a choice. Our room - named for St. Adwen, evidently a Cornish kind of St. Valentine - was very small with very little closet space but ecologically friendly (no little bottles of soap and shampoo but larger refillable ones and an overall green policy we much appreciated) and an excellent if narrow mattress (can be romantic). Wifi connection was fine both in our room and in all areas of the hotel.
The hotel is only a few minutes uphill walk from the train station in a quiet residential area, where the hotel was put together evidently originally from two charming Edwardian houses, which we could enjoy in the cozy public rooms including a comfortable parlor with roaring fire (necessary during the coldest Easter Penzance has evidently ever experienced).
We enjoyed the delicious breakfast with a combination of buffet and cooked-to-order servings and a beautiful view of the bay, which some of the more expensive rooms evidently have. And the restaurant deserves its own review – we had one of the best meals of our entire two-week trip through England there.
For future trips to Penzance this will be our first choice – and with a little bit more advance booking, maybe we’ll be lucky enough to get a larger room with a view too.
