I stayed at Penmere with my mum for four nights in July, and absolutely loved it. The atmosphere is relaxed yet professional. The room, food and service were all excellent and of a high standard. The hotel is situated within walking distance of the town, and the environment feels tranquil. The pool is great, knowing you can use it in all weathers is a bonus. Everyone at Penmere was so friendly, we would recommend it to everyone!
... as a single traveller I enjoyed a family room. Large double bed and 2 x bunk beds. Tastefully decorated with a comfy sofa to watch the box. Fridge was a tad noisy so turned it off. Power shower, most powerful shower I've ever had, I almost ended up down the plug hole. Breakie was good albeit no menus. Its a 20-25 minute walk into Falmouth or £6-7 taxi. Never used the pool or gym, no time. Free towels available for the pool. Would stay here again.
Enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was very satisfying. Would recommend to anyone who wants to stay. Our room was clean comfortable and adequate for us. We ate in the bar and the restaurant during our stay and was very pleased with our meals.
Our hotel room was lovely really spacious and very clean. Shower and a bath also a living area too which we didn't expect. We went for a swim and meet some locals in the pool who were very friendly and good to talk to which was nice. We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel which was lovely and fresh. A few things we felt could be improved.. new carpet needed in the corridors - very dated and a trip hazard. Broken gym door and a broken sink in the ladies changing rooms which were also rather dated. Staff were friendly at all times..
I travelled with a group so had no control over my booking. I was a one of a few single travellers but I ended up being given the smallest box room with a single bed overlooking the kitchen bins next to the constantly banging fire exit door and it was also a bit smelly. So after complaining I was told that there weren't any other rooms, however I apart from our group I saw no more than 5 other guests. I expect that they had no other small rooms for single occupancy. My guide offered to swap, his room was larger with a double bed. The woman on reception seemed concerned that he would have to sleep in a single bed, but had no concern for me. I actually would have paid for an upgrade if offered. I swapped but although it was bigger it certainly was NOT big. It had a single wardrobe with a door hanging off its hinges, the hanger were strangely clumped together and there was only one bedside cabinet so I wasn't sure how it would suit 2 people. The shower was so small that it was almost impossible to bend down if you were of average height. I had visions of my bottom bursting through the doors. My first shower was cold and I thought the hot water had run out, but as I was finishing it started to warm up. There was no bath and the basin was so low and small I thought it was for a child. The heated towel rail was on constant extra hot with no switch to turn it off. I had to keep the window open so that I didn't suffocate in there. The bed was lumpy and very soft and the key card kept going wrong (5 times in 3 days) so I had to keep getting someone to let me in. It's a great shame as the hotel could be a lot better. It needs some serious money spent on it. I tried to walk into town but there is no obvious way and this hotel is sort of stuck in the middle of nowhere and I couldn't see the sea. The wi-fi was patchy. However, we had some super service from the waiting staff and I really enjoyed the food.
Stayed here for 5 nights. Our room was huge, more like a small suite and was quiet, comfortable, clean and well-equipped. Staff were friendly and helpful. The only downside was the buffet part of the breakfast - too much reliance on packet cereals and only one choice of jam flavour (and that was in a plastic packet). Not what you expect these days. However, the cooked breakfasts were generous and tasty.
Stopped here 4 times now. It's a clean, comfy hotel with a small gym and swimming pool. The staff are always very friendly and helpful. It has a nice patio area, overlooking the garden, which is nice to sit and enjoy the the sun. The toms are perfectly adequate. I've had ones at the back, which don't have much view, but are more private. The ones at the front do overlook the car park, which isn't as private . There are others, which I assume cost more. The breakfast is plentiful with a decent choice. Never had a meal here. If there's a downside, it's that it is about a mile or so from Falmouth, so you would probably have to drive, but for a base, it's is a quite location.
Had ten day at the Penmere, can not say a bad thing about it, myself and five crew members were put into this hotel for ten days, I personally had a great time with use of the swimming pool a fitness suite met some friendly locals there, staff were great once you got to chat with them we were all very well looked after, would recommend this hotel to anybody, thanks to all the staff.
Travelled with our daughter for university interview travelled down from shropshire, 2 nights stay in March , nice hotel restaurant a bit over priced but good, use the swimming pool, found this to be a hotel with a nice old feel set in nice grounds which was part of the charm. Would recommend
Booked at the last minute I had trepidation I may have made a mistake BUT what a lovely hotel and gardens. This hotel has retained its quaint charm that you would expect from a hotel of years gone by. Gardens were subtropical and well maintained. Hotel has a pool and small gym on site too which was unexpected and nice. For those that know Falmouth this hotel is not on the main drag and not really within walking distance of the town. Saying that, it's a 5 minute drive to all main areas as it's located "at the top of the town" behind the rugby club area. Local station in close if going into Truro. Rooms are clean and basic but fit the bill well. Some rooms have a poor flow for the shower which I found with my long hair. Breakfasts were superb. Would stay again and I know what I will get unlike other hotels in the area that can be overpriced as there are no main chain hotels in Falmouth. This hotel great value.
