We stayed at the guest house rooms attached to the Beachfield Hotel for two nights before and after a family trip to the Scilly Isles. While the hotel itself is lovely and the staff very friendly and helfpul, the converted stables where we had our rooms was another matter. While the rooms are quite new, they are possibly the smallest rooms I have ever stayed in in my life (and I've stayed in some small rooms). How small were they? Well if you sat on the side of the bed you could reach out and touch the wall with no difficulty. You could also use the end of the bed as a chair for the desktop carrying the tv etc. What made the claustraphobia worse was that there were no real windows in the rooms, only a narrow frosted glass window running along the top of one wall. The hotel also has a ridiculous key system for which you have to punch numbers in to the outside door and then to your room. The numbers are small and my elderly parents had great difficulty opening the doors at times. Those travelling with the elderly or others with mobility issues should be warned that there are quite a few steps to be negotiated.
Position on the beachfront at Penzance is great, and the hotel itself looked lovely, but I certainly wouldn't recommend the guest house rooms at all.
