Ok so nobody's perfect but it's nice that some businesses try and get close. We stayed for 3 nights in a gorgeous superior sea room and here's the kind of small details this hotel got oh so right. Situated in front of our glorious window was a cool red leather recliner and stool super for watching the comings and goings...

Stayed for two nights here, before and after our trip to Scilly Isles. Arrived late on the first night and were greeted by a very friendly and helpful receptionist, who showed us to our room and around the hotel (including where we could get a most welcome drink!). The rooms on both nights were great with some stunning sea views....

My wife and I stayed over for one night.The hotel has a great position,just along the front ,near the train station and ferry. However , the room was quite small and there was some discernible noise from the other rooms . The staff were helpful but the room was not cheap (£185 for one night's B&B) and we avoided the...

In my option the hotel is pretentious and overpriced but does have great views of the harbour. One of our party was given half a mushroom and a spoonful of scrambled egg for breakfast (although it was beautifully presented) disgraceful!! Avoid at all costs

Beautiful hotel with charm and atmosphere. We got a top floor room with fabulous views of Penzance and the water. Staff at reception were friendly and helpful. Liked the nice extra touches like free tea and coffee facilities in the room as well as free afternoon tea with cakes and biscuits.

Very nice hotel, room 3 is very hot as window requires repair so that it opens correctly, also it might just be my impression but I think this room must be located above the kitchens as sometimes I felt there was an oily/greasy aroma upon entering the room.
