We stayed in one of the larger rooms which was excellent. We were made very welcome on arrival, the room was large and comfortable and the shower was one of the best we have encountered in a hotel. To conclude our stay we enoyed a superb breakfast, the best for a long time. Highly recommend this hotel for a short...

Stayed at the Tarbert for 5 nights, had a nice large room at the front of the hotel. Breakfast is lovely, a fruit platter plus cereals, toast and a wide choice of cooked breakfasts. We arrived in Penzance by train and the route the taxi took to the hotel frightened us silly with the length and gradient uphill, but we...

Stayed 2 nights - overnight for ferry to Scilly Isles and likewise returning back to mainland one week later. Totally comfy and tastefully decorated. Very relaxed atmosphere. All staff very friendly and breakfast was an eye opener. Large, tastefully decorated, funky inbuilt fish tanks with super cutlery and plates. Food was terrific and loads of choice. Went out on a...

We stayed at The Tarbet Hotel in Penzance and found the experience rather trying. First of all the review says "there's plenty of parking" when in truth there's only on street parking from 7pm - 9am and Pay and Display Car Parks. We were told it wouldn't be a problem parking outside but I'm sure if a Traffic Warden would...

Well, we usually stay in the large 'chain' hotels, hilton, marriott hol inn etc, and these are few and far between in Devon and Cornwall! So on our recent long weekend down to Penzance, we stayed at three smaller/independent hotels - one night in Torquay, one in St Austell and then 2 at the Tarbert hotel in Penzance. They were...

Stayed at this hotel twice as a stopover en route to and from Scilly Isles: handy for the station and heliport. Also close to the restaurants in Chapel Street. Bedrooms were comfortable and the included breakfast was excellent with a good choice of freshly cooked fare, such as full english, poached haddock, and eggs benedict. Friendly tv lounge/bar area and...

My sister and I recently travelled to Penzance and stayed for 3 nights at the Tarbert Hotel. It was one of the most pleasant experiences I have had. The hotel owners and staff were extremely helpful and gave us excellent advice on local restaurants and places to see. The rooms were comfortable and well maintained. I would recommend this hotel...

I had a single room for 1 night at the Tarbert Hotel and really enjoyed my stay. The staff were all very friendly with smiles and enthusiasm - such a nice quality to have greet you when it has been chucking it down with rain! The place itself is nice and compact with my single room being perfect for me....

The hotel was really homely and the staff were very helpful and welcoming. The full English breakfast was lovely and a glass of wine by the open fire in the evening was a must after the drive down to Cornwall. Would definately use this hotel again. The only problem was that the walls were a little thin!
