Penzance & Around hotels and hostels
Chy An Mor
The fallback option on Regent's Terrace – starting to show its age in places, but really friendly. The rooms are rather heavy on the flock and frills, but there's a lovely lounge and homemade marmalade on the breakfast table.
For a touch of Chelsea-on-Sea, check into this elegant Regency house. Checks, pinstripes and cheery colours characterise the five bedrooms, and downstairs there's a Mediterranean restaurant with al fresco terrace.
This indie hostel isn't as well-equipped as its YHA compatriot, but it's more laid-back.
This superbly creaky sea-captain's house just off Chapel Street offers a tempting taste of Penzance in its 18th-century heyday.
Comfy, simply furnished rooms on the B&B ghetto of Alexandra Rd, with the added bonus of free wi-fi.
A great budget B&B, offering eight slightly old-fashioned rooms, most with bathroom, including a couple with a modest sea view.
Housed inside an 18th-century Georgian manor on the outskirts of town, this official hostel has an on-site cafe, laundry and four- to 10-bed dorms. Buses 5 and 6 run from the bus station to Alverton; it's a 500m walk from the bus stop.
One of several quality B&Bs on Regent's Terrace, this old-fashioned five-starrer stands out for its classy rooms, period features and eco-conscious stance. Fluffy bathrobes, pillow treats and views over the prom will tempt you, too.
