THE BLUE SEAS HOTEL
Built for a Master mariner in 1836 at the height of Penzance’s architectural expansion, Blue Seas is an elegant grade II listed townhouse overlooking Mounts Bay.
Today, we are a small independent, environmentally friendly hotel offering comfortable rooms, high quality service and excellent food.
Situated in the heart of Penzance, Blue Seas is the perfect base for a holiday exploring the history and beauty of West Cornwall’s coast and landscape.
COME AND SEE FOR YOURSELF…
Choose between 7 bright and contemporary bedrooms, all individually designed and showcasing local artworks and textiles.
Many have glorious sea views overlooking Mounts Bay towards Newlyn and Mousehole.
Our spacious guest lounge and library is the ideal place to unwind and plan your next day’s excursion. You can also enjoy a cream tea in the sunny front garden.
FRESH, LOCAL, HOME MADE…
We take breakfast very seriously here at Blue Seas. Our bread, pastries, cakes, biscuits, granola and marmalade are all homemade. Fresh herbs are grown in the back garden and we work with local independent suppliers to source our fish, cheese, eggs, meat and vegetables.
Choose each day from a varied buffet and menu with all dishes freshly cooked to order.
Penzance lies in a unique position at the head of Mounts Bay. Overlooking St Michael’s Mount, Newlyn and Mousehole, this holy headland historically provided shelter to ships, pilgrims and travellers.
Today Penzance is both a charming holiday destination and a stepping stone to the spectacular coastline and scenery of West Penwith.
By train: There is a direct line from London Paddington to Penzance several times a day and an overnight sleeper. We are located about ten minutes walking distance from the station and just a couple of minutes by taxi.
By car: Penzance is easily reached by from the A30. Once in town, follow the harbour road towards Newlyn until you reach the beginning of the Promenade. Then, turn sharp right into Regent Terrace after the Stanley Hotel.
Check-in time is from 2pm until 8pm and check-out is until 10.30am. However, we will be happy to look after your luggage and let you have full use of the lounge if you arrive early or want to leave later in the day.
We have a 14 days cancellation policy. Any cancellations within the cancellation terms are fully refundable. If you would like to cancel your booking, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

What our visitors say
“Our whole family stayed here in 2016 and loved it so it was the obvious choice for our recent visit. The rooms are extremely comfortable, everything works and the breakfasts are legendary. Fiona and Arnaud go the extra mile to make every guest’s stay a memorable one.”

“This was our first time at the Blue Seas Hotel and we are so happy to have stayed there. Fiona and Arnaud are gracious and wonderful hosts. Breakfast and the cookies in the room are fabulous! Our room was perfectly clean, comfortable, with modern updates. We are so excited to go back!”
Such a great guest house!
“This was my third stay at Blue Seas and I would recommend to anyone. The breakfasts are outstanding and the daily biscuits in your room are delicious! Fiona and Arnaud are the best hosts and they have COVID rules so well organised.”
“Fiona and Arnauld were very welcoming – not just letting us drop our bags early but providing coffee and a snack. The room was reasonably spacious with a great view. Plentiful and varied breakfast and zero irritations with our whole stay. For us it was as close to perfection as it gets.”
