Wonderful hotel in an out of the way location. Doug was a perfect host and the room was outstanding. We booked through Expedia, which did not adequately describe the unique breakfast arrangements, although they were perfect for us. Directions to the hotel should be more clearly stated in the Expedia booking information.
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.
Arrived tired after a long drive from London not knowing what to expect from the Tavern. Parking was easy and the Tavern easy to find.
Landlady extremely friendly and welcoming - even had chilled bottle water in room. Very comfortable and clean rooms.
Best steak meal we have had and such value - 2 steaks and bottle of wine for £25.
Bar was well stocked.
Breakfast was amazing and so tasty.
We stayed here for a single night en route to a week in the Isles of Scilly. The hotel is positioned close to the Isles of Scilly ferry, however it was also handy for Sea front and Penzance Center. The hotel is nicely furnished, has excellent facilities and the room was very comfortable. Our room was described as having a restricted view, we were able toclearly see St Micheals mount. Not a bad "restricted" view at all! The staff were wonderful, we arrived with our 3mnth old son. They made up a cot for him quickly, and loaned us a baby monitor. This was unexpected and allowed us to enjoy dinner in their restaurant. Although this is obviously beneficial for them, my wife and I felt it was a nice touch. The restaurant was nicely appointed with attentive staff. The food was exceptional; but I'll make no bones about it it was expensive. The breakfast in the morning, included in the price was also very good. In summation a fantastic hotel, lovely staff and for us on this occasion in a good location. The downsides are price and the car parking is extremely limited. I would highly recommend for a special "break away" for couple.
