Good location for historic area and free breakfast was a bonus. Our room wasn't large but was OK.

Nice stay in a great area.
Had a very nice stay. Hotel is quirky - some rooms have a view but others look out to the building next door. Hotel is well placed for exploring cultural attractions, eating and drinking and shopping.

Nice hotel, friendly staff but breakfast was disappointing! Would not class it as continental!

Penn's View Hotel
Comfort in een bijzonder historich gebouw
Heel leuk hotel dicht bij het water en alle bezienswaardigheden! En in een heel mooi historisch pand. Echt super leuk!!

Penn's View Hotel
Real character
Large rooms in an old building (old as having real character - excellent!), right on Market Street and the lively district. Courteous service and a good breakfast. Parking alongside, but chargeable. Thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and the area. Don't stay here if you want a modern box hotel - this place has character!
