We stayed here for two nights with a cream tea and dinner on the 1st night. The hotel is really lovely as are the staff. Great food, very nice room and lovely view. Parking is available but up a steep hill into the car park. only a short walk to both the train and bus stations.

We decided to start our bi-annual fix for Cornwall in Penzance. We wanted to stay in a hotel rather than a B&B so after a bit of browsing the internet we chose the Hotel Penzance and we're so glad we did. What a great find, it's a hidden gem and one that I'd like to keep a secret so we'd...

On a steep hill and only limited parking- book a space! Once inside though, lovely little hotel with friendly helpful staff. Our ground floor room overlooked the pretty garden with views to the harbour and St Michaels Mount. Everything was provided for a very comfortable stay. Delicious buffet and extensive choice of freshly cooked hot food for breakfast. Afternoon cream...

From the moment of our early arrival via the Rivera sleeper, we were made to feel incredible welcome. Sue, who greeted us, on the reception desk suggested we left our cases with her and went through for breakfast.
