“Friendly hotel with good food”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

I stayed on my own for 4 nights at the Beachfield in September 2013 as a base for walking the southwest Coastal Path between Hayle and Lamorna Cove. I felt very welcome and all members of staff were consistently friendly and helpful in making my stay enjoyable. The location for my purposes proved perfect because several bus services from the peninsula (e.g. 1A, 300) stop only a few yards from the hotel - very welcome after a day of clambering along the coast path. Both breakfast and dinner in the hotel restaurant were of excellent quality and the service was very attentive.

Room Tip: The ocean view single room at £80 had a lovely view and a fairly big bed where i slept well, On the...

Excellent staff, very helpful, for example providing a non feather pillow and looking after luggage the following day.
Delicious food - both supper and lovely big breakfast with made to order eggs.
Very comfortable and clean, large size room with sea view. an excellent night's stay. Thank you

The hotel was nice and modern, breakfast was cooked to order and was very nice. Staff were warm and welcoming. Also very helpful when I needed assistance with printing a flight boarding pass last minute. I stayed in a single room which are small but more than adequate for a lone traveller. The bathroom had a good size bath and was probably bigger than the bedroom! Very clean and well presented accommodation. Good selection of teas, coffee and hot Chocolate in the room. My only negative was the bed was not as comfortable as I would have hoped for, I suggest the hotel invest in a mattress topper for the single bed as I could feel springs and it felt quite hard. I would still give the hotel another try in the future but perhaps one of the larger rooms to see if the double bed is more comfortable.

We did not stay at this hotel. But the menu posted at its front brought us into a pleasantly appointed reception area where we enjoyed a glass of wine while considering the day's offerings by the chef. I chose the mackerel-waldorf salad and lamb dish. Both were perfectly prepared and attractively presented. My wife opted for the roasted cod which was very fresh and nicely seasoned. (Yes, I did have to tasted it. It looked so good.) Both main dishes came with a platter of tasty vegetables, as pretty as could be. The wine list is not an extensive one; on the other hand all of the offerings were reasonably priced, and the Chablis was OK. The dining area was well lit, spotless, and in every way comfortable. The two servers were as friendly and competent as anyone has a right to expect. We had a very enjoyable stay.

Hotel definately deserves 4 stars! We had premier double which had double aspect windows overlooking sea, st michaels mount and newlyn harbour, spacious room with everything you need.only let down in room was fridge not cleaned inside. Towels fluffy and bed comfy. Breakfasts were amazing and lots of choice. We also ate in Tides, their restaurant one evening and the food was fantastic and the best we had out all week. Staff friendly and will go out of their way. Nit picking would be as it shares reception with guest house next door can sometimes be a lengthy wait to retrieve room key after getting back to hotel, not so good if you're dripping wet!! We loved staying so much that we were able to negotiate longer stay there without room switching. Also used laundry service which was very quick and not too pricey.

Room Tip: Close windows to avoid lorry noise if at front of hotel but views worth inconvenience!

My wife and I stayed for four nights in late April celebrating our 30th anniversary. We had an initial mix up with the bed size, but Sue and Philipe sorted it right away by moving a King size bed into our room. A very nice hotel with a warm and friendly atmosphere and a delicious breakfast. Our room had two bay windows, one facing south out to sea, and the other east towards Marazion and St. Michael's Mount. Brilliant views! The only negative I would say is that several of the window panels in this room are failing and the streaks and condensation can spoil the beautiful view. No worries about traffic noise either as rush hour in Penzance is over once begun. Our room was very comfortable and quiet and we experienced no problems from check in to check out. All the staff are very friendly, helpful and nice to speak with. No request is too small and all are dealt with immediately and with a smile. Special thanks to Sue and Sarah and the ladies of the dining room who all go above and beyond. Well done!

Stayed two nights at Beachfield Hotel- wonderful location overlooking the scenic foreshore with sweeping views. Staff were very friendly and attentive and rooms furnished stylishly- had breakfast and dinner in the hotel dining room and all meals were delicious with good service. Very good value, and only criticism is the beds weren't very comfortable and difficult bathroom access and lack of safety for my elderly father despite having requested accessible bathroom at time of booking. Borrowed a "shower chair" from the friendly Little Wonder Cafe caravan on the Promenade opposite the hotel. Necessity is the mother of invention when it comes to disabled access facilities in England!

Room Tip: Ask for seafront room as views are wonderful.
