About the hotel

The awe-inspiring sense of history greets you as you enter The Dolphin Tavern, with the past echoing in the aged granite walls, the intriguing shipping artifacts, and a warm atmosphere that makes you feel immediately at home. In 1585 the tavern served as John Hawkin's HQ, recruiting Cornishmen to fight in the Armada, Sir Walter Raleigh is thought to have smoked the first pipe of tobacco in England here, and the tavern was used as a courtroom for centuries following. So legend says, it is also home to three spirits.

This long and colourful history makes a visit to The Dolphin Tavern a unique experience.

Weekend in Penzance

Warm welcome.

Flexible, we left our bags over 3 hrs before check in & again on vacating the room. The room is comfy, the bed good, fresh decor & the shower works well. The only downside was the noise of the toilet macerator (especially from other rooms)
