Have you ever arrived at a hotel and immediately felt sad that you’ll have to leave? It doesn’t happen to me as often as it should (some photos are so misleading, are they not?) but my recent stay at boutique hotel Chapel House exceeded all of my already-high expectations. This town house offers beautiful décor, views right across Mount’s Bay, and the most delicious breakfasts you could hope for.
Chapel House, built in 1790, has been carefully renovated over the past two years by new owner Susan. The restoration is respectful of this Grade II listed Georgian building’s age while being contemporary and clean. It’s like walking into the pages of a smart interior design magazine, but you still feel perfectly able to make yourself at home.
We stayed in the utterly glorious room two, which had everything you might wish for–including an in-room bathtub! There is (of course) free WiFi throughout the house and each room has a mini iPad loaded with tips and guides for the local area. Should the weather catch you out, you can also borrow a wax jacket and some winter-y accessories from the boot room. Every detail has been considered.
I’d highly recommend booking a stay at Chapel House if you’re planning a trip to West Cornwall–and even if you’re not, this hotel is reason enough to visit. Back soon with my tips for Penzance and the local area.
We received 2 nights complimentary bed and breakfast in exchange for this review, but I would honestly have stayed at Chapel House forever if I’d been allowed to.
