This small B&B hotel was a gem. Traditional in style, very convenient for the railway station and the town centre - literally 2 minutes walk to the station and 5 to the centre of Penzance and very welcoming. The breakfasts were a total delight - served in elegant surroundings and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Good home-cooked food, excellent fresh fruit salads, plenty of toast and fresh hot tea or coffee (served with a jug of hot milk).
I cannot praise this hotel too highly. It has room for improvements in decor but the feeling that nothing was too much trouble more than made up for that. The view from our front facing room was spectacular - Mounts Bay with St Michael's Mount and Marazion to the left, the harbour and centre of Penzance to the right. Even though the train station was just across the road we heard nothing of the trains. There was noise from the traffic as the main road is outside but we did not find this intrusive. Added bonus was the hotel car park so no worrying about the car being vulnerable as parked in a public area. Overall a really good place to stay and one we shall return to in the future.
