“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

I was booked into here for a one night stay. Warm welcome. Absolutely immaculate decor and spotless. Bed was superb with fresh white linen. Room was big with plenty of storage, tea/ coffee and water. Bathroom was spotless with excellent shower and decent shower gel/ shampoo.
Evening meal in the restaurant was superb as was breakfast with service to match.
Really struggling to find any negatives but if I had too it would be that my room didn't have a great view (car park) but most of the others look over the bay.
Will definitely use again when in the area

We stayed here recently and again last year. Very nice rooms, friendly staff and excellent food at the restaurant. Unfortunately we were too late for the complimentary tea and cakes this time, so must plan better next time! The pool is handy if the weather is nice too.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 are right next to the restaurant and ideal if you can't manage the stairs!

Last weekend we stayed at the Hotel Penzance. The welcome was warm, the room was spotless and full of character, there was even a teddy bear on the bed. The view was of Mount's Bay. The staff were polite and faultlessly helpful. The food was good. Our overall impression? Stay there if you are going to Penzance. You will not regret it.

Room Tip: Ask for the view over Mount's Bay, an iconic Cornish scene.

Thank you for your review - and the view over the bay is a stunning one today. Its like summer here in Penzance - the sun in shining - the temperature is in double figures - and its calm. Perfect for sitting on the terrace at our Bay restaurant enjoying good company with a cocktail or even a coffee. Can't think of anything I'd rather do today.

We were given a voucher for afternoon tea as a gift and we decided to use it at the Hotel Penzance whilst staying in Cornwall. What a welcoming and delightful hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed the high quality sandwiches, pastries and scones, sitting in the restaurant overlooking Mounts Bay and Penzance Harbour. The staff were more than helpful and very friendly. we would definitely recommend the hotel if you want to treat yourself to afternoon and we may well be going back.

Its a boutique hotel situation close to the harbor with excellent views. The food was outstanding, we had gone there for our anniversary, the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, having flowers and niceties arranged to give my wife a very pleasant surprise. Its very close to the tourist spots like lands end and not very expensive either! Really enjoyed our stay there and would definitely recommend it. Made our 5 hours hike well work it! You definitely won't regret your stay here... Thanks Debbie!

Room Tip: Superior room with sea views!

we stayed here for Valentines, room was really nice with a beautiful big bed and fantastic views out over the harbour and St Michels Mount. The room was well equiped and very clean.
The resturant and bar areas are quite modern again with great views. The food was very nicely presented and well cooked.
We would certainly look to stay here again in the future.

So glad you had a fun valentine time and enjoyed our nice and cosy hotel whilst the drama in the weather continued outside. Alas its back again this morning but not with the same gusto - thank goodness! We look forward to seeing you again when hopefully the days are brighter and calmer.

Lovely room with a good view of the seafront. Friendly service from the staff. The room way very clean and the super-king bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was absolutely delicious, wonderful fresh fruit, pro-biotic yoghurt, freshly squeezed orange juice etc. I would definitely recommend the Eggs Royal! Would definitely stay again.
