Guest reviews

  • Family with children

    Comfortable room, clean and a lovely bed. The staff is very nice and gave good information about things to do and see.

  • Group of friends

    Staff were all incredibly helpful and service was impeccable. Upon arrival they marked out all the good food places nearby and suggestions on where to go. The location was great - lots of decent pubs within a stone's throw away, but it wasn't noisy. We loved returning after the end of a long day in lovely Cornwall to a comfortable place that felt like home!

  • Older travelers

    The friendliness of staff.The quirky appearance of the rooms and public areas. Design items for sale.The bright and happy appearance lifted our spirits.

  • Older travelers

    An excellent, unique experience. Completely different from the usual, yet also very comfortable and well appointed rooms which are all hand decorated by local artists.

  • Couple

    The rooms are interesting designed and each of them is different.

    I didn’t expect to find so many black hairs on the floor and on the bed. They serve a continental breakfast which was not very generous. The worse was that on the last day, when we went to have a breakfast, the breakfast area was still closed, even though it was 9:15am. Unfortunately we were not the only disappointed and hungry guests leaving the hotel that day. I hope that some refund will be done for not serving us the breakfast.

  • Couple

    Extremely relaxed atmosphere and incredibly helpful / friendly staff.

  • Older travelers

    Friendly staff

    Tiny room and very noisy - too expensive

  • Single

    The enthusiasm of the staff and the quirkiness of the rooms. Very well situated.

  • Couple

    Very friendly and flexible staff. Small but very lovely and stylish arranged room

  • Single

    I loved the quirky and unique design of each individual room. I also loved that the staff genuinely took an interest in us and helped with the little things like tickets to the theatre. Also absolutely loved the location

    Would be nice to have an evening meal in the hotel

  • Older travelers

    good welcome, quirky decor of rooms, central situation

    the price, I seemed to have been charged far more than price on website, but must have missed something

  • Single

    Friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms. Relaxed atmosphere. Well situated near the train station and town centre. No cooked breakfast but what was provided was fresh and healthy.

    Rooms at the top of the hotel are perhaps a little small and there is no lift so anybody having difficulty with stairs would have a problem.

  • Single

    The unique way in which the hotel has been conceived with the gallery downstairs and the individually dressed and decorated bedrooms. Staff are keen to help and the nature of the hotel is that you can be left very much to your own devices which is a mixed blessing!

    The hot water is dangerously hot.

  • Group of friends

    The hotel is comfortable and centrally located. It was easy to explore downtown Penzance, the seafront, and is just a short walk to the train/bus station where you can find easy transport links many neighbouring towns and villages. The eclectic design (each room done by a different artist) made it more interesting than staying in a standard B&B. The continental breakfasts offered a good combination of fresh pastries, yogurt, fruit - and snack bars you could pack away for later in the day. On the last day of our stay, breakfast was thoughtfully packaged in a takeaway bag. The staff, especially Charlie, were helpful and accommodating. I'd highly recommend to anyone planning a trip to the area.

  • Older travelers

    Very unusual approach. Rooms and common areas are decorated and fitted out with items that are distinctly imaginative and creative. This creates a feeling of fun and casual relaxation and encourages interaction between guests and between guests and staff. A place for the young at heart.

    There is limited parking available on the site. Apparently one should request a parking spot when booking which will allocated to you if one is available.
