Hotels in Penzance
A Cornish boutique hotel by the sea
Perched above the seashore in the astonishingly unspoilt fishing village of Mousehole in West Cornwall, the Old Coastguard is an intimate, friendly hotel and restaurant with its own palm-strewn gardens and a private path leading down to the sea, giving us a view considered one of the finest in the land. We like to consider it a home from home‚ here and of course that means children, and dogs, are welcome too.
A room with a view
Perfect for a laid-back Cornish break, our sun-drenched bedrooms offer panoramic vistas across the changing waters of Mount‚s Bay. Some of our rooms face into Mousehole‚s beautiful harbour.
Our soft, white linen and super-comfortable beds will help you drift away to the sound of the sea lapping against the shore
Simple, fresh, delicious
Kick back in the comfy sofas with coffee and the papers.Take a light lunch in the sun lounge Or a romantic nightcap under the stars on the terrace Or dress up for a three-course dinner.
At the Old Coastguard, we want our customers to feel comfortable and relaxed, which is why we‚ve created a contemporary yet easygoing bar-bistro space ˆ no dress code, no timed sittings, no rush. Wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling windows frame our iconic views, bathing the tables in natural light, and the garden terrace is dreamy on summer days.
On the menu is a collection of simple yet delicious dishes ˆ modern rustic in style and inspired by the exceptional fresh produce of West Cornwall. In one of the most stunning settings anywhere, you will fall in love with this place.
