Chapel House PZ has been awarded 13th place in the prestigious Top 50 Boutique Hotels awards, which took place in York this week.
The townhouse was the only hotel in West Cornwall to make the exclusive list, and one of only 3 hotels in Cornwall to be in the top 20. This is a huge honour for Chapel House PZ and is a wonderful boost to the team who work so hard to ensure all guests delight in their stay in Penzance
Says owner Susan Stuart “I am absolutely thrilled to have made the list, and to be lucky number 13! We are in such excellent company, thank you to 50 Boutique Hotels and congratulations to all.”
Located just a stone’s throw from the harbour of Penzance, Chapel House PZ is a beautiful Georgian townhouse which was transformed into an elegant boutique hotel. Owner Susan Stuart fell in love with the property in December 2012, and set about breathing new life into the neglected building, blending Georgian style and architecture with contemporary style to create a light, airy and welcoming hotel moments from the sea.
The décor throughout takes its lead from the sea, featuring soft greys, greens and blues, enhanced by the natural light which floods the building. The Newlyn School of Art curates a constantly changing gallery of artwork in the entrance hall and first floor landing, juxtaposing beautiful modern art next to the traditional Georgian features in a stunning partnership.
The bedrooms, of which there are six in total, are found on the first and second floor, and all have views across to the sea. Three have large sea-facing windows giving impressive views over Penzance harbour and Mount's Bay as far as Lizard Point, ideal for watching the fishing boats in the early morning light. Rooms are refreshingly simple, with Smart TVs, iPads and coffee and tea making facilities available on demand, and fabulous bathrooms with waterfall showers, deep soaking baths from Cabuchon and delicious products from Pure Nuff Stuff in Penzance. The two storey suites, across the kitchen courtyard, both have bespoke kitchens, sitting rooms and breath-taking views from their multi sided terraces.
Guests are ensured of a warm welcome from Susan and her team, who are always on hand to help with any queries or advise on all the great places and activities that Penzance has to offer. Chapel House PZ straddles the line between beautiful original features and modern decor, where abstract art rubs shoulders with decorative cornicing, with wonderful results
