This is a real treat, an updated Georgian mansion next to Penzance parish church - two iconic landmarks in the best street in town.
Susan has invested so much attention to detail to make this place "sing". It is a laid back ambiance that results from meticulous management. You would have be a misanthrope not to feel enlivened by a stay here. All comments about rooms, breakfasts and location are true (other than one sad case who clearly would not recognise a quality experience if it bit her on the nose.).
Log burner in bedroom, rainfall shower, wonderfully comfortable bed, retro radio, slimline TV -if you must - gracious drawing room(s) and spotlessly clean. We loved it.
Why am I telling you all this when it will simply make it more difficult to book in again? But we will!

We stayed here for just one night but were overwhelmed by just how special this hotel is. In her relatively short time in Penzance, Susan has become the Grand Dame of this quirky Cornish town, offering a sumptuous place to stay and amazing food. Everyone should add this place to their bucket list just to experience one of Susan's breakfast - you haven't had an "English breakfast" until you've tasted one of these. Black pudding, white pudding, the best sausages in England and all washed down with a very special smoothie - wowzer!!

The pillows are worthy of a special mention - made of wool and initially feel a bit firm but give you the best nights sleep you will ever have.

If available the bedroom on the second floor with the bath situated beneath a retractable roof is very special - lie in the bath and watch the stars!

Can't wait to go back and an ideal place to use as a base to explore St Michaels Moint, Newlyn, St Ives, and the amazing beaches at Porthcurno and Sennen Cove.

We have been twice now and will definitely be going back. The service and the quality of the food is fantastic. Coffee, smoothies and a great choice of cooked breakfast. The homemade rarebit muffins are really good too. Ridiculously good value for money.

It's a brace person who buys a derelict Chapel nearly two hundred miles away, and spends two years turning it into a boutique hotel, using their own money, local builders and their own labour.
Susan ( the owner) has created a 'home' that demonstrates a great 'eye' for design and quality. Local students contribute art ( for sale).
Susan is ably assisted by Lucia, and between them they do all they can to ensure your stay is a delight. Pick up the iPad provided in each room and you will find places to go for good eating whatever your budget, hidden places to see, walks and great pubs.
Going just after Christmas we missed out on the evening meals but breakfast was a delight and set us up for the day.
It's indicative that in a short space of time the hotel has become respected by local traders and is already set to increase it's floor space.
If you like Premier Inn prices and uniformity then is probably not for you but if you enjoy somewhere unique that caters for individuals looking to be pampered then go and stay there, and enjoy a glorious part of the world.

I was so lucky to get the opportunity to stay in this very special place. Sue has done a fantastic conversion with tasteful modernisation to this historic house, combining ancient and modern in such an innovative and clever way to produce a warm and comfortable space.
The bedrooms are luxurious and each has a different highlight. Mine had a spectacular waterfall shower with a view from the bed all the way south to the Lizard.
The food was very special and all served in such comfortable an informal surroundings.

Room Tip: with each room having a different highlight it's hard to prioritise any of them.
