We have stayed in the Hotel Penzance on two occasions now and will definitely stay there again. . The hotel is very clean and the staff are all very friendly including Jerry the cat! We have eaten in the restaurant and the Sunday evening meal of roast pork and beef was one of the best we have ever had.
The room was immaculate with dressing gowns, tea and coffee etc.although we did have problems with the internet service. Overall this is a superb hotel and highly recommended.

An excellent hotel which I wholeheartedly recommend. Attention to detail is in every aspect. A seaview room is worth the extra price. Only downside is the car park which can get full and be awkward to park when hotel is busy.

Good afternoon and glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Definitely worth upgrading to a sea view room where you can sit and view the sunshine sparkling on the water across the bay.

I stayed at hotel penzance for 3 days and it was a wonderful experience. The hotel is just up a hill along the coast, no more than a 5 minutes walk from the train station. The staff very very friendly and helpful, taking care of my luggage as I arrived early and placed it in the room for me when the room was ready. The rooms were very neat and clean, showers and heaters were in very good condition. The tv was placed a bit far from the bed so it was quite hard to watch, but apart from that everything was good. I had hotel breakfast included which was great. The restaurant has an amazing view, good food (I had egg Benedict and full Cornish breakfast), and very friendly staff. A very pleasant stay for me and I would definitely recommend it.

We had a fantastic few days in Cornwall. The Hotel Penzance exceeded our expectations on just about every level. Sue made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived, took the luggage to our room as we both have disabilities, showed us where everything was, got us a much needed drink and sorted out the internet problem I had straight away.
The hotel is spotlessly clean, has high quality facilities all round, is most comfortable and tastefully decorated. There were plenty of nice touches such as bottled water in our room, bath robes, bath mat, good beds and TV.
The breakfast was of a very high standard with the option of buffet and cooked food. The staff were most polite and helpful in all areas of the hotel.
The hotel is in a very convenient location, about 10 - 15 minutes walk from the rail and bus stations and about 20 minutes or so walk to the Scillonian ferry. The walk up from the main road is short but steep. We hope to be back there for another break later in the year.

A few days away in Cornwall was a surprise success and turned out to be one of my mosy enjoyable mini breaks. This was not only thanks to the amazing countryside but also to the hospitality of Hotel Penzance and its staff. From ease of booking to pre-arrival confirmation, this hotel lived up to expectations. During our stay the service, friendliness and openness of all staff was exceptional and refreshing. Great break and great hotel!
