The Lugger Hotel
Ranked #67 of 84 Penzance B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 August 2015 via mobile

Staff were all very friendly and helpful. When we checked in, we were directed to the very large room, which contained a king and three single beds. Unfortunately the furniture was in a poor state - one of the two bedside tables was close to toppling over. There were no bedside tables at all for the king bed, and no working bedside lamps (there was only one in the whole room and it didn't work). The bathroom was basic and very small, but everything functioned as it should. The beds themselves were quite comfortable.

Unexpected stay en route to Scilly, booked first and then saw largely bad reviews and thought oh dear.
Reality was that for the budget price I had a lovely room, a super carvery meal, a relaxing drink on a lovely terrace adjacent the sea, and a nice chat to friendly staff.
Highly recommended - what do the moaners expect for this price?

Parts of the hotel have been renovated nicely and the view is fantastic but unfortunately our room (family room with seaview) had not been updated (or thoroughly cleaned- think bird poo on windows and mouldy curtains) for about 50years- (think psychedelic carpet and a bulk buy on yellow paint!) There is no sink in the bathroom or window in the children's seperate part of the bedroom either. The receptionist demanded payment on arrival and explained had made a mistake so instead of agreed £130/night (still overpriced) she now wanted £180/night! The serving staff were wonderful though and only reason I gave more than 1*.

This looks good from a location point of view. However the decor is very dated, moldy curtains and wall paper falling off. Sink in the bedroom and not the bathroom. The staff in the bar were really friendly and helpful. However I can't say the same for the woman on reception. This hotel has great potential given its location and the nice room sizes shame its not up to standard

Room Tip: Get one of the refurbished rooms at the front of the hotel.

Loved our room! Had such a lovely view and a great stay. Disappointed with the lack of parking as this isn't explained on the Expedia page, so ended up having to walk for a while with heavy bags. The bathroom had a slight smell, but bearable. Lovely restaurant and fab night sleep overall.
