My wife and I got a last minute deal on booking.com with a double sea view room for 109 GB pounds. On arrival around 11.30am we were warmly greeted and offered a fresh coffee (Nespresso) while we waited for our room to be ready. Sue gave us a tour of the hotel facilities on the way to our room. We stayed in room 19 - an average-size room with a nice sea view partially obstructed by the hotel (other rooms on the front have better views). Our room included a kettle, a good French-press coffee pot with ground coffee (unlike instant Nescafe so often found in the UK), teas and biscuits. The bathroom in 19 includes a wonderfully deep bath tub and shower over the tub. Good quality shampoo and body wash in mounted dispensers provide for easy use in the shower/bath and luxurious bath robes add to the sense of quality. I liked the fact that our window opened both at an angle or as a door allowing for the sea breeze to blow in. The hotel is located on the south side of Penzance (Britons Hill) within a quarter-mile of a 24 hour Tesco and easy access south toward St Michaels Mount, Porthleven and Falmouth. Lands End is 30 minutes west. Breakfast was cooked to order (very good) along with a selection of fresh pastries, fruit and yogurt. The hotel has a full restaurant and bar overlooking the bay and the hotel pool (heated). Room service is available. Complimentary afternoon tea is available in one of the two lounge areas (self service tea/coffee and a selection of small cakes). Overall the Penzance was one of our favorite places we stayed on our tour around Cornwall and Devon - simply the best overall customer service from all the staff - and for the price we paid we found it to be the best value compared to every other B&B/hotel we stayed in.
