I would be more than happy to stay at the Abbey if I needed a hotel in Penzance again. I booked the suite for my family of 4, which meant that my children could have their own room and we were still self contained so we could avoid disturbing other guests. We were welcomed with tea and beautiful cake, served...

We spent one night - a birthday/anniversary treat - at the Abbey hotel, in Room 1 and it surpassed our expectations. Our bedroom itself was spacious, beautifully furnished and with a wonderful sea view from the large windows. Equally gorgeous was the huge bathroom, with a lovely view of the hotel's charming gardens. The owner and the staff we met...

The Abbey is so wonderful! I found this hotel on the internet -- its sweet, shabby chic appearance and historic interest appealed to me. My husband wasn't too thrilled, so I only booked one night. But it was such a wonderful place that once we realized what a treasure it was (as my husband agreed), we inquired about staying one...

I don't really want to tell you how lovely this hotel is because it will get too busy. The hotel is absolutely charming, the rooms delightful, the view splendid, the staff enthusiastic and helpful. Where else do you have a breakfast room with a roaring open fire and a breakfast cooked to order? Convenient for the town and its many...

I have been visiting Penzance for 35 years as my wife comes from nearby Newlyn. Because we have stayed in her parents house the Abbey Hotel has been a place we have never actually used. On our latest visit to Cornwall we decided to give the Hotel a try. Expectation invariably exceeds the reality but not in the case of...

A beautiful very well appointed hotel with extremely friendly & helpful staff. Worth a visit to Penzance if only to stay here!! Breakfast was substantial with an unusual variety of choices.

We had a 'long weekend' stay here to visit my family after our recent wedding. I wanted to stay in Penzance as this was a very central location as far as visiting friends and family is concerned. It also meant we could visit all the places I wanted to show my husband without having to drive very far (Cape Cornwall,...

We have always wanted to stay at the Abbey on our visits to Penzance and had never quite got around to it! This time we did.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Abbey Hotel is a rare gem, a hotel that refuses to enter the modern world, choosing instead to linger in its serenely elegant past. The feel is of a smart country house, and the drawing room – roaring fire, huge gilt mirror, walls of books, rugs on stripped floors – is hard to beat. ... more   less
