We stayed one night after a matinee performance at the stunningly located Minack Theatre a few miles away. We were warmly welcomed by the owner who gave us helpful advice on the nearby restaurants which were within easy walking distance. The room was extremely clean and comfortable, well appointed with matching pine furniture and with all the usual amenities. The owner has a rolling programme of refurbishment and had a new hall carpet on order, which should update the look of the house on entry. The breakfast consisted of an ample cold buffet of fruit, juices, yoghurt, bread and pastries with options of meat, cheese and boiled eggs if required.
Me and my partner enjoyed our stay at the Fountain Tavern, we found the staff welcoming and were asked on arrival if we would like to book for dinner in the evening, we had already made alternative plans so I cannot comment on the food.
We found the room comfortable and I especially liked the features such as the window seat and the stained glass in the cupboard which was turned into a wardrobe. The bed was comfortable and the carpet was a high pile and lovely under foot.
My only downpoint was that the bedside tables were quite wobbly and perhaps a lower quality to the rest of the room, however this did not affect our stay.
The Tavern is within walking distance to the centre of Penzance and the harbour.
In the morning we went downstairs with breakfast and were greeted with a choice of cereals and toast, a full Cornish breakfast (full english with extras), and a couple of additional choices. Me and my partner both had the full Cornish which was delicious.
We would definitely stay at the Fountain Tavern again and would recommend it to any of our friends and family.
my second floor room was on the bay with a splendid view sounds of the surf (also night until 11 or so and early morning sounds of traffic ) the traffic noise was not a bother for me as I sleep soundly. My big bed was comfortable, the bath was fine, I had a big bay window. Breakfast was tasty. Everything was clean. Everyone friendly. I am sure I made the right choice in the Lugger.
