Official star rating:
This heritage Georgian home was originally built by an Admiral at the time of the battle of Trafalgar, but has since been converted into a stylish and welcoming 6-room guesthouse.
Owner Susan Stuart is the perfect host who really cares about her guests – so much so that you feel like you’re visiting a relative. She cooks for you (very well), advises on and books restaurants, and loves welcoming kids and pets, who are specially catered for.
Many of the beautifully decorated rooms have sea views across St Michael’s Bay.
The hotel is located on Penzance’s historic Chapel Street, a short walk from the station. It’s perfectly located for exploring the town – close enough but in a quiet area.
Penzance is a charming and vibrant coastal town that offers a unique blend of natural beauty, culture, and history. The town’s art scene is particularly notable, with numerous galleries showcasing works by local and international artists. It’s also the gateway to the Isles of Scilly and the rugged southwestern coastline of Cornwall.
Buzzing St Ives with its many attractions is close by, as is St Michael’s Mount and the pretty village of Newlyn, home to an excellent art gallery.
