Story
Introduction
"The Abbey is a rare gem, a hotel that refuses to enter the modern world, choosing instead to linger in its serenely elegant past.

The feel is of a smart country house, and the drawing room – roaring fire, huge gilt mirror, walls of books, rugs on stripped floors – is hard to beat. Drinks are brought to you, there’s a bust of Lafayette, exquisite art and huge arched windows that rise to the ceiling and open onto the loveliest walled garden; step out in summer for afternoon tea or a breakfast to remember.

The house dates to 1660 and has views to the front of Penzance harbour and St Michael’s Mount. Country-house bedrooms are grandly quirky (in one you pull open a cupboard to find an en suite shower). Sink into big comfy beds wrapped up in crisp white linen and woollen blankets. There are chandeliers, quilted bedspreads, French armoires, plump-cushioned armchairs.

You breakfast indulgently in a panelled dining room with a fire crackling and assorted busts and statues for company. Kind staff don’t act the part, they simply go the extra mile. The Abbey restaurant next door has a Michelin star. Exceptional". - Alistair Sawday's Special Places to Stay
