I sat in the conservatory of this wonderful place watching the sunset over Mounts Bay. I overheard a guy at the bar say to a staff member: "This place is a real find" & Indeed it is. I too wanted to indulge in panegyric about this place but I truly believe one simply has to visit this atmospheric piece of heaven to really absorb what a proper hotel should be like. In the Sunday Telegraph, Fiona Duncan previewed the ''Abbey Hotel'' as the best place in Penzance. She is wrong & you only have to come here to see these polite, warm, über friendly staff gently "doing the do" without drawing attention to themselves as indeed, can be said of the building itself. Ask for room 16 for the best view & please indulge in high tea in the lounge which is redolent of all that makes England very special. Very special.
