We stayed at the Penmere Manor hotel mid week as we had a visit booked to view the local uni with our daughter. Lovely large superior room clean and daughter and I enjoyed a lovely swim in the evening. Breakfast nice good choice staff very helpful and friendly. Room was about a five minute walk along corridors to dinning room reception and pool.
One of the most important aspects of a hotel stay is the way that you are welcomed and treated by the hotel staff. Here the welcome was warm and friendly and staff were always helpful and communicative. It makes a pleasant change from some of the chains where this is not always the case. The hotel is away from the normal tourist area of Falmouth which means a long walk or a car/taxi is needed to get to the town and back. We were upgraded on arrival and given rooms looking out over the front garden, one with a glimpse of the sea. The rooms were spotlessly clean and had all the necessary facilities. My partner used the swimming pool which she enjoyed , even though it was not the largest it was not busy and proved a useful addition to the hotel. We did not use the gym,sauna or jacuzzi. We ate in the bar at night the food was well cooked and the portions of good size. It was not a large menu but would suit most tastes. Breakfast was taken in the restaurant and was freshly cooked to order. In particular the bacon and sausages were really tasty and a cut above any we have had in other hotels. We would certainly stay here again, it is a lovely place for weekend at any time of year
I have stayed here several times over the past few years, never been disappointed. room 25 spacious, very clean, pool area spotless, breakfast brilliant, nothing too much trouble. I have stayed in 5* hotels and have not had such good clean rooms and dining area. Staff always polite and friendly.
Stayed recently for 2 nights while down in Falmouth on Business. Check in experience was smooth and we were in the room in no time. Room itself was on the ground floor and adequate, all usual toiletries/tea coffee in place. Iron/board available from reception. Upstairs floors are slightly creeky but this just adds character so wasn’t an issue for me. Free Wi-fi throughout Hotel. Ate in the restaurant one night, food was nice albeit slightly slow in coming out of kitchen, staff were attentive. Breakfast was equally as good. Whilst appreciating we stayed out of season the general theme was the Hotel was rather cold. Heating did come on in the morning and early evening but still felt cold. This wasn’t a major issue more of an observation. Check out was transacted with no issue.
We stayed as a party of 8 here last weekend have travelled 400 miles for the night. The hotel was amazing the staff friendly and the ground magnificent. My room was spacious and really comfortable. The receptionist greeted us and made us all feel very welcome. i had a really good nights sleep in the huge bed. Breakfast was also very good, sausages skins were pale, but they were cooked right through. Service was excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are ever in Falmouth
When we arrived to the manor hotel we couldn't get over how beautiful it looked and how close it was to the town centre. When we entered the manor hotel we were greeted by a friendly and welcoming receptionist which offered to show us to our rooms and asked if we wanted any help with our luggage she also offered her assistance if we had any problems of which we did not at any time of our visit. Upon arriving to our rooms they were clean and tidy with comfy beds and drink making facilities. In the morning we went for breakfast and were greeted by a lovely waiter who seated us and took our orders. the food was beautiful and we were offered drinks when we were running out and more food afterwards which was lovely and thoughtful, The tables were clean and lovely also. Upon leaving breakfast we were met with a lovely farewell from the waiting staff. When we left the manor hotel we were met with a lovely fair well from the receptionist and a warm thanks. All in all the visit was amazing and I recommend the manor hotel to any one looking to visit this amazing place.
Situated around half hour walk from the centre. Looks great from the outside. Staff polite and the family room was brilliant.. The corridors were a bit musty and it could do with a revamp but great value for money and the pool and gym are a definite bonus
Lovely old historic hotel which needs significant investment. I can forgive this as its family owned and will never compete with the large chains for value. Had a pint in the bar and asked the underworked barman to call a taxi and was told to walk back to reception to ask them to call one....................!
Arrived approximately 8.00pm Friday evening,. Reception closed. noticed a bad musty, stale smell. Had to go to the bar, booked in ok and shown the way to our room. Dropped off cases and need to order food due to last orders at 9.00pm. Food good and served promptly. Bar reasonably busy, but lounge looked like an old peoples home. Stayed in the bar for drinks, told by staff member that they had an early start the next morning for breakfast and also was playing ruby and was tired, then told us the bar closes at 11.00pm. Went to our room and started to unpack, we very tired due to traveling over 300 miles (6 hours). Noticed a few bits with the room, such as the curtains didn't meet and our daughters room (20) curtains had a lack of hooks and were barely hanging on the rail. The next morning we actually looked around our room. Wall lights didn't work at dressing table, hinge broken on the wardrobe, Chair stained in bedroom, hair on covers, Staines on Table in bedroom, mould on blind and ceiling and around the bath, cracked wall tiles, toilet holder across the room (good if you have long arms), had no were to put toiletries, bathroom very grubby. couldn't turn off heating, Squeaky floor boards above. Breakfast, table items missing, no staff to ask as they were in the kitchen the hole time and had to grab them when you could. Given coffee but no cups, not butter, toast arrived before breakfast so stone cold. My daughter ordered the cooked breakfast without bacon and tomato but extra hash browns. It arrived with bacon and no mushrooms. We did ask for the mushrooms but never arrived. Receptionist very helpful when we ordered a cab for the Saturday evening. Didn't say in the hotel for a meal, as the atmosphere wasn't great and didn't want to feel guilty staying in the bar because the barman wanted to close up. Overall have very disappointing stay and extremely over charged. We have stayed in Premier in for half the price and received far better accommodation. Actually wish we hadn't paid our bill, feel completely ripped off.
A lovely hotel but spoiled by a very rusty shower pole, and squeaky floorboards in the room above my ground floor room, which prevented me having a good nights sleep. A disappointing breakfast too, no muesli or fresh fruit. The breakfast table was missing various cutlery and crockery and service was disorganised. The bar meal was very good though.
