The Best Hotel in Penzance

Edwardian Elegance with Modern Style and Comfort

Hotel Penzance is the only 4 Star townhouse hotel with 2 AA Rosettes and swimming pool in the West of Cornwall. Originally two merchant houses in the 1920s and dating back to Edwardian times, the townhouse today combines traditional elegance with modern style and comfort. We even have our own guest host to ensure your stay is top-notch, from ensuring you have all you need, to sharing Cornwall’s best-kept secrets.


Make yourself at home

Make yourself at home

On arrival you will be welcomed and personally shown to your room – they are all named after Cornish Saint’s.

No room is alike, some with sea views, others with drench showers, but all have luxury complimentary toiletries with grooming kits, robes and beds that beckon, dressed in crisp Egyptian cotton.

Ultimate relaxation

After a quick unpack enjoy a relaxing tipple on our sun terrace whilst admiring the boats and sea sports in the bay below, or a dip in our open-air pool when the clime is warmer. The Mediterranean landscaping and hilltop setting provides a secluded spot akin to the French Riviera or Amalfi coast. Early risers will be treated to a ‘pinch yourself’ sunrise over the waters of Mount’s Bay.

In the cooler months, sink into a sofa in one of our cosy lounges, make yourself at home with our honesty bar or take the time to relax and catch-up over complimentary tea, coffee and cake served every day from 3 until 5pm.
