The hotel was set in a fantastic location, the staff were very pleasant, The only thing lacking was seating, there was a lounge bar, but small, other rooms were being used (private functions) there was seating in the lobby area but not ideal. They could do with maybe a lounge bar with some music/entertainment. The room we stayed in was clean, although the bath was well past its sell by date,(need replacing or enamelling) and mould was around the bath surrounds.

Basic but perfectly fine inn that is DIRECTLY across from the train and bus stations. Not luxurious by any means but clean and totally fine for a night or two. Right on one of the main shopping streets in Penzance, as well. Good food and drink too!

We had a lovely short break here and we're very impressed with the place.
The staff were wonderful, they couldn't do enough for you.
The room was lovely, the only small negative was that the bed was quite small but the fabulous views of St Ives and Porthminster beaches more than made up for that.
The food was wonderful, the fillet steak was the best I have ever had!
Can't wait to return.
We have visited Penzance on many day trips during summer months and often thought it may be nice to visit 'out of season'. Additionally we have always felt that The Dolphin looks a nice place to stay, with an excellent location by the harbour. We travelled down on the overnight train from Paddington (an experience in itself), and was not disappointed with our choice of The Dolphin to stay. The weather was kind to us, and we had three lovely days in and around Penzance.
The most westerly tip of the country is also the wildest part of Cornwall, known for its prehistoric sites, cliff scenery (particularly at Land’s End), raging surf, and tin mining relics. Its most popular settlement is St Ives, a beautiful fishing village and arts centre with its very own Tate gallery and superb beaches. Penzance is a characterful Georgian town, while the nearby soaring island abbey of St Michael’s Mount is a regional icon.
