We had a Saturday night stay here. This is a pub with rooms, not a hotel, but if you come expecting just that it ticks the boxes for an overnight stay. The room was very basic, in need of a bit of TLC/general maintenance and dated but clean; a little noisy until the pub had closed but then reasonably quiet...

My husband and I stayed there for one night, everywhere else was booked up in Penzance! The pub is totally geared towards theme and entertainment but sadly the standard of accommodation is left behind. Just basic things that one would not expect to find in their room on arrival eg. mould in the kettle, totally unusable, and obviously not checked,...

The rooms are above the pub but we could not hear any noise. Our room decor was tired and I did have a problem that I had to bring to the staffs' attention but they immediately put it right and were very apologetic. We had been out all day so we decided to eat in the restaurant and we were...

I spent a week at The Longboat with a group of eight and we found it had everything that we needed. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The location is terrific. It's very close to both the railway station and the bus station. And it's an easy walk to the coastal paths. The meals were great and there's a wonderful,...
