Hands down Penzance's most entertaining hotel, this converted town house on Chapel St has been renovated with impeccable taste, marrying period architecture with modern boutique style. It's full of detail: Robert's radios, roll-top baths, antique furniture, old tea chests and the odd wall mural or two. The Loft rooms are lovely, particularly the luxurious Lookout.

Several rooms can be configured for kids and families, and pets can be accommodated too. The spacious cottage with sitting room and log-burner is ideal for long stays. The restaurant, the Cornish Barn, is very good too.

Quick description via

The unique and original rooms at the 17th-century Artist Residence are each uniquely designed with some rooms decorated in an eclectic, rustic style and decorated by local and British artists. Guests have free WiFi. The bespoke style of each bright and airy bedroom is complemented by amenities including a flat-screen satellite TV, a private bathroom and tea/coffee-making facilities. Some rooms feature statement bathtubs and log burners. Rooms are accessed by stairs only. The property's award-winning breakfast is served from an à la carte menu in the restaurant area, which is also open during the day. The Cornish Barn restaurant uses local Cornish ingredients to create a hearty menu of smoked meats, Cornish fish and seafood and local produce, served in a lively atmosphere. In the summer, guests are invited to relax in the property's festival garden, which serves cocktails and food straight from its BBQ smokehouse, and use the ping pong and Foosball tables available. Just a 5-minute walk from Penzance’s historic seafront, there are a number of restaurants and other galleries within a few hundred metres. Penzance Rail Station is next to the Wharfside Shopping Centre, just 0.5 miles away.
