Perched on the Atlantic coast in the fishing village of Penzance, our elegant townhouse hotel enjoys outstanding seascape views to the horizon with large, open skies. Hear the cry of gulls and smell the fresh sea air. Once the home of Merchant’s for prosperous ship owners, today Hotel Penzance is an Edwardian townhouse and your ‘home from home’. A warm and welcoming service awaits you…
Retreat to one of our 25 en-suite rooms, each designed to reflect the natural beauty of Cornwall for joyful escape. With panoramic sea views of Penzance harbour across to the iconic St Michael’s Mount, lie back and watch the sunrise from the comfort of your bed. If you enjoy adventures of the sea, catch a glimpse of seafarers, local gigs training in the open seas and the RMV Scillonian III setting sail for the Scilly Isles.
Set back from the hustle and bustle of town you’ll discover a quiet retreat. Ivy Chelsea style gardens surround a sun-drenched terrace, offering alfresco dining and a no-filter-required sea view. The crystal blue waters of the swimming pool beckon for a dip in the summer months while our poolside loungers are suited to a lazy afternoon with a good book. Fresh sea air is complimentary.
There is room for every taste on our menu. Come here to relax in good company and tuck into comfort food, generous helpings, your favourite homemade dishes and more. Our menus document our own story of how our love for great food grew into our ‘farm to fork’ restaurant. Dishes change with the seasons and naturally, seafood is a speciality. Wines are provided by our local wine merchant, hand-picked, tried and tasted! All cocktails are served with panoramic sea views.
Venture out and you will be spoilt for choice. West Cornwall and the Penwith Peninsula is a cornucopia of iconic Cornish attractions, golden beaches, smuggler’s coves and the cultural hotspots of Kernow.
