My husband and I had a lovely three day break in this excellent hotel. We had booked via a Telegraph deal but that did not matter to the staff who unfailingly treated all the guests with politeness, courtesy and (with one or two exceptions) a smile. Big comfortable bed, bath nice enough to make me take one and with a good shower over. Afternoon tea available - and we were encouraged to partake of the free tea and cakes - but we were having too much fun exploring the local area and then enjoying coming "home" to Hotel Penzance. Have to say that we were split 50/50 in the restaurant; he was very impressed with his food, I was less so. Oh, but the eggs Benedict for breakfast - really bad for you; really good to eat!!
Penzance is a bit of a disappointment if you are not an art lover, but Minnack Theatre, St Ives (what fabulous beaches) and Newlyn are all within easy reach. For some REAL history take a short drive out of Penzance to Chysauster and look at the remains of an Iron Age settlement lived in about 2000 years ago.
We will return - when we've saved up.
