Lovely views of Atlantic Coast The hotel is more contemporary inside than its initial appearance. The communal areas are decorated well & there are tranquil areas to unwind. The spa is good albeit an outside walk to get to it in ones dressing gown would not be pleasant on a Winters day. My room was extremely hot even with 2 fans ...

Wonderful view of the town with great restaurant.The hotel is located a 5 minute walk up a slightly hill from downtown Penzance.

Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels Hotels in Cornwall

Cornwall is a county that thrives on its atmosphere. The laid-back, friendly nature of the local people couples perfectly with the county's dramatic yet welcoming natural landscapes. Something which adds tremendously to the unique atmosphere of the county is the plethora of historical buildings, many of which have been turned into exquisite hotels, guest houses and bed and breakfasts.

Historic Penzance

Penzance is the westernmost of Cornwall's major towns, which lends the town a unique identity. Lined with historic buildings, the streets tell the stories of years gone-by, of sailors, miners and pirates!

Hotel Penzance is a typical historic hotel, situated a stone's throw from the picturesque coast. The hotel provides a free, breakfast, as well as WiFi and even an outdoor swimming pool.

If you're looking for something that combines old and new in Penzance, head for the Artist Residence, a small boutique hotel in an historic building with a tasteful modern interior.

A Tudor County House

When we think of historic English buildings, it's often vast country houses that spring to mind. Blessed with a generous helping of rural countryside, it's hardly surprising that Cornwall is home to its fair share of impressive, grand and opulent country homes.

In a rural setting, just outside Bodmin, Tredethy House is the archetypal English country house. The Tudor hotel boasts decadent, traditional rooms, all within easy reach of some of Cornwall's foremost attractions, to include the Eden Project and a number of National Trust properties.

Traditional Inns

The Inn is one of the oldest and most enchanting forms of accommodation in England. The King Arthur's Arms Inn is just as guests would imagine - small, charming, and full of character. Situated in Tintagel, the four star Inn is within minutes of the seaside. The Inn also boasts free WiFi, an excellent on-site restaurant, and great disabled access.

Those intrigued by the Inn's name can head to Bodmin Moor to visit a legendary site. Dozmary Pool is a small body of water on the Moor, rumoured to be the home of the Lady of the Lake. It's said this is where King Arthur was granted the sword, Excalibur, and where the sword was returned upon the King's death. Don't fall in, though - it's also rumoured to be 'bottomless'!
