I highly recommend this hotel. I had some initial worries triggered by a few negative reviews, but our experience was a good one.||||Our five night stay included dinner each night, and although the menu had limited vegetarian options, the chef was willing to adapt dishes to meet my preferences, which was a pleasant surprise. The quality of the food was excellent. We had to leave before breakfast on the last day and the hotel packed us some food for our journey instead - a nice touch.||||A standout part of our experience was our waitress, Emma, who was an absolute joy. Her service truly enhanced our dining experience.||||We did encounter some issues with the heating in our first room, but the staff addressed the matter and moved us to a better room.||||The decor of the hotel was tasteful and the beds were very comfortable, contributing to a restful stay.||||Overall, the hotel's commitment to customer satisfaction and the positive attitude of its staff made our visit memorable. I would recommend this hotel to others and will stay again for sure if I venture down to Penzance.

Absolutely fabulous stay for 3 nights with breakfast and dinner. We couldn’t fault anything, food was amazing with thanks to our waitress Emma and the chef who were both fantastic. Room was spotless with beautiful views across the harbour. Would highly recommend this hotel and we will be back, thank you 😊
