Lonely Planet review
Perched on a hill with views across Mount's Bay, this town house hotel makes a pleasant Penzance base. Bedrooms are staid in style, with cream-and-magnolia colours, varnished desks and vintage lamps: the best have bay windows looking out to sea. The hotel's restaurant, The Bay, serves quality food.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Penzance and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Penzance.
