I am a bit confused as to why the Beachfield is so highly rated. It is a decent 3* hotel, but it certainly is not worthy of 4.5 points on here.
I’ve stayed there a few times and rooms vary hugely. If you are lucky to have a seafront double they are bright, airy and spacious. If not, you end up in a tiny single room with a view of some wasteland behind the hotel. The WiFi didn’t use to reach the second floor, but that appears to have been fixed now.
The bathroom toiletries are of very poor quality and the shower curtains smell really mouldy and stink up the whole room. Cleaning also appears pretty relaxed, with some bins not being emptied after previous guests and a general feel of staff not being too bothered.
Breakfast is a highlight – great choice and good quality. I wouldn’t recommend dining there, the meals are expensive and there are much better restaurants in town.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on the sea front in Penzance, Cornwall, the Beachfield offers superior guest accommodation, award winning breakfast and attention to detail in every aspect of service. All complimented with breathtaking panoramic views of Mount's Bay, from The Lizard to Newlyn Harbour with St Michael's Mount glitteringly prominent at centre stage. A Victorian building dating from the 1860s and standing on grounds that were once fields and dunes where fishermen dried their nets, we have long been a favourite for those who know Penzance well. All of our interiors are constantly refurbished to maintain the high standards that the modern traveller quite rightly expects. As well as our leisure travellers we cater equally for the needs of our business guests who for many we have become their regular 'home from home'. With free Wi-Fi throughout the property, comfortable lounges, bar and award wining breakfast served daily from 07:00hrs. ... more less
