Reviewed 30 May 2017

We had booked a twin room, but on arrival were told we had an upgrade to a large family room. The room was near the top of the hotel but was really nice. My wife thought that there was no kettle (she has to bathe her eyes in warm water) only to find that everything was stored in the cupboards. We had a totally hassle-free stay and as we paid for stay when we arrived, a no hassle departure. We parked outside initially but always managed to find a promenade space. Has a large outside eating/drinking area which is very popular. Excellent position for accessing ferry.

Room Tip: Our room was at back and we heard very little noise

We booked a budget room but Steve upgraded us to a room with a huge bay window looking out over the ocean. Bliss! Everything was clean, bed comfortable, restaurant great for dinner and breakfast all we could have wanted. All in all a really good place to stay and we could have done with another night. Thanks Steve!

Room Tip: Get the one with the bay window. The extra cost is worth it.

We left booking a room until 3 weeks before we needed to stay in Penzance for the night.
My aunt and I need a twin room. We searched and couldn't find a twin room anywhere in Penzance. They were all sold out.
We found a family room here and booked it. We were a bit worried about some of the reviews we read, but that was all that was left.
We arrived on Friday evening it was blowing a hooly!
It looked a bit worse for wear from the outside.
We were checked in by the owner who told us he'd upgraded us to a sea view room. Which was lovely.
A spacious suite. A double bed with a bay window looking out to sea, and a room at the back with two single beds, leading to a shower room. It looked like the room had just been decorated, new furniture. The beds were comfy, linen was white and lovely, good towels also.
Lots of stairs and corridors to negotiate but worth it for the room which was nice a quiet.
We arrived late, 8pm ish, we had rung earlier in the day and booked a table for a evening meal. Loads of meals to choose from and we were both very happy with our meals. The buffet breakfast the next morning was also good a selection of fruit, cereal, juice etc. We didn't have a cooked breakfast although could of if we wanted to.
Several people were staying overnight including musicians that had been performing at the Minnack theatre, and some of the crew from the train that we were going on on Saturday morning.
We had the same lady serve us both our evening meal and breakfast the next morning. She booked us a taxi for early Saturday morning.
This place is not 5 star but could of been a lot worse!
We would both return.
My only complaint was the cord to turn the light on in the bathroom could have done with changing. It was a bit dirty.
But all in all we were pleasantly surprised.

I really enjoyed the roast I had at the lugger, as did my friends. There is 5 different choices of meat which is different compared to most who do a choice of 2/3. There is also a much bigger selection of vegetables and extras such as stuffing, leeks etc. The price is good and the food is served all day long until the evening. Friendly staff and a view of the sea...what more could you want. Go try it...you won't be disappointed.

Stayed: February 2017, travelled with friends
