Room seemed newly furnished and had all the amenities, comfy bed and nice Mira shower, which all helped to a restful nights sleep. Had the half pound Burger with bacon in a bun and home made chips served by the friendly staff on that night and it was excellent. The Burger was delicious, none of that rubbery feel you sometimes...

My husband and I booked a room online before arriving in Penzance. The hotel is conveniently located across from the train station so it seemed like a great option. Plus, it's a pub and we could watch the rugby. The service pretty much stopped once we gave over a credit card. We were given a broken key and about five...

This hotel is just a very short walk from the sea front and behind the railway station, There is ample parking in the main car park with a very modest charge of £6 for 24hrs and a very short walk to the hotel. The welcome was first class and all the staff were very professional polite and made you feel...

Went here for a late lunch. Not much choice of tables to sit at as most of them had a computer on them. Seemed to be doubling as an Internet cafe in the bar. Basic pub grub on the menu so I had scampi and chips. It was ok. Staff were friendly enough but no atmosphere. Wouldn't rush back.

Arrived on the sleeper service from Paddington at around 8am and wanted to drop my bag but was told I could check in already as room was free! Had a quick freshen up and headed out for the day. Got back about 6pm and had a fantastic Cornish beef burger and fries, along with a few pints of Tribute. Service...

Checked into room 1 .. It's right at the front of the hotel. If your a light sleeper forget it. The road noise is very noisy. The window doesn't stay open if you want to let some fresh air in. The window also rattles. The two single beds are comfortable, but my pillow wasn't so comfortable. It was very hard....

Total disaster... we went there with friends, which was a huge mistake. Our rooms were filthy. I don't even know where to start... the mouldy bathroom sealing, hair in the bath and ON THE PILLOWS! The whole room was dusty, the nightstand probably had not been dusted for months! After seeing all that we weren't sure if the bed sheets...

Very nice pub with a large selection. Average service all around. Our room was open so the did let us check in very early. That was very much appreciated. Top floor rooms were a little on the loud side. Must be no insulation between the walls and the macerator pumps will let you know what your neighbors are up to.
