Lovely hotel just over the road from the sea. I had a very pleasant small double room as a single, No 17 on 2nd floor, lovely sea view. The room and bathroom looked recently refurbished and were nicely decorated and furnished. Bath with shower over. Plenty of room to store clothes etc. Only drawback is that there is no lift. Food was excellent. Breakfast very good choice of cereals, pastries, yogurts, fruit. Cold meat, cheeses and cooked breakfasts to order. The hot food was always beautifully cooked with freshly made toast. Evening meals also very good, with a reasonable choice, but there were only two menus - Monday/Wednesday/Friday, and Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday, with a roast on Sunday. Dinner again was beautifully cooked. Maybe a little expensive, eg about £6 a starter and £19 main course, but that is about what you would expect to pay for this quality of food. Staff very friendly and helpful. Reception manned all day, with a night porter.
The 'Little Wonder Cafe' in a little caravan (weekends only) on the promenade opposite the hotel does lovely tea and cakes served in beautiful china cups and pots.
The beach opposite the hotel is mainly mud and shingle, but most people seem to go for a swim there at high tide when you can go in straight off the lower part of the promenade. Go to St Ives or Hayle for sandy beaches.
The hotel is about a 15 min walk from the town centre, and 20 min walk from the bus and train stations. It has very limited parking, but there is free parking in the road, and a long stay Pay & Display car park almost opposite at £5.60 a day.
The Beachfield is a lovely hotel and is a very good base to explore this part of Cornwall. I thoroughly enjoyed my week's stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on the sea front in Penzance, Cornwall, the Beachfield Hotel offers 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, our hotel has long been a favourite for those who know Penzance well. Much of the interior has recently been modernised and refurbished to a high standard. ... more less
