The Queens Hotel in Penzance was originally opened in the year 1862. A hundred years ago it advertised that all its public rooms which included coffee room, reading and writing room, ladies drawing room, smoking and billiard room, were conveniently located on the ground floor.
All bathrooms had hot and cold water and that its cuisine and stock of wines were selected with the utmost care. There was also attached to the main building a good range of stabling, and horses and carriages 'for airings', picnics etc, available at moderate charges. The superiority of the accommodation was nevertheless provided at moderate tariff.
