We stayed four nights here in the late summer. Set just to the east side of Penzance, it is literally only a few hundered meters to access the road network to all the local attractions. In truth one of the biggest, St Michaels Mount, was in perfect view looking out of our window. As already described by others this is a lovely atmospheric old Victorian house which is situated in a great position 5 minutes walk from town and harbour. Parking is on site and easily accessed. The room was functional and plenty large enough though lacking some of the more peripheral comorts of modern hotels. Nontheless wi-fi, digital tv and tea/coffeemaking facilities were available in the room. It was very clean and with a big really comfy bed. The dining room for a 'silver service' breakfast is a delight with great views across the bay. Breakfast itself was excellent. Service was fast and efficient and the food freshly cooked. The young couple running the hotel were attentive and helpful in every way. We both thought the atmosphere was a little quiet and perhaps some (very soft!) light muzak in the background might lighten the slighthy austere mood of Victoriana just a little! Yes it is a little quirky in style and decor, breakfast is only served between 8-9 (snooze and you'll miss it) and payment is cash or cheques only (!). But for location, comfort and the views it's a perfect spot for a short break in one of the most beautiful parts of Britain.
