Andrew and Lynsey are excellent hosts who provide very homely and comfortable accommodation as well as a good choice of quality breakfast. Though not in the centre of Penzance Glencree is on the bus routes to Land's End, Sennon Cove, Lamorna,and Mousehole whilst other routes are just a short walk away.An added benefit is the provision of local transport timetables....

Reviewed 2 November 2016

Not normally a B&B people, we tried this as it was so highly rated and now I can see why. Glencree House is absolutely brilliant, the hosts were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The room was of a high standard, fairly spacious, immaculately clean and so much better than a hotel. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and clean, which made...

We stayed for a short weekend. The owners couldn't have been nicer, made us feel very welcome, and the breakfasts were great. Our room was clean and spacious and we got free wifi everywhere... I would have given it 5* except the décor could do with refreshing...but having said that, we would go there again without hesitation...

Spotless and comfortable and very , very friendly accommodation. I am very fussy and did not find fault with anything. Everything you need is provided and nothing is too much trouble. I would definitely recommend.

Glencree House was exactly what I wanted. At 45 pounds, it was an unbelievable bargain. The room was lovely, perfectly tidied, with a chocolate mint and a fine tea and coffee service with a cookie. My bathroom was down the hall, but private to me and quite nice. A bathrobe was provided for my convenience, thought its maker may not...

A great place to stay. We stayed four nights. The room was good, the breakfasts were awesome and the hosts Andrew and Lindsay were very friendly and full of great tips of places to see and where to eat and drink. We followed all of their recommendations and each one was spot on. We had a wonderful time. Thank you...

This is was my first visit to Penzance, Cornwall. It was me, my wife and little daughter traveling. Upon entering Penzance I was instantly taken away by its sheer natural beauty. Our B&B location was two minutes away from the sea and we were instantly greeted by Andrew who was very welcoming and friendly. Instantly we were made to feel...

Thanks to Andrew and Lynsey for another lovely visit to Glencree! The bed was so comfortable, and the food was so tasty. There was a high standard of cleanliness. The breakfast menu has many choice and is freshly cooked for your order. I recommend the salmon and eggs on toast and the fresh local Apple juice. Andrew and Lynsey offered...

I am a bit late on this, but my husband and I (Nova Scotians) stayed here for 2 nights mid-October. Our room was comfortable and spacious, the breakfast was cooked to order, varied and delicious, and best of all, hosts Lindsay and Andrew were very gracious. They were most forthcoming with directions and suggestions and very helpful with phone calls...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lynsey and Andrew are your friendly & welcoming hosts in an elegant Victorian guesthouse situated in a peaceful & quiet location close to Penzance seafront and town centre. With its wealth of character and many original features, Glencree House echoes the romance of yesteryear, combined with the comfort and style of today. We have 7 bright, spacious, recently refurbished guest rooms configured as a mixture of single, twin, family and double rooms - one with a four-poster bed and some with sea views. All rooms are en-suite or have a private bathroom and are equipped with free wi-fi, TV and DVD player, DAB clock radio with iPod docking station, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities. Your guest lounge area is situated in the streaming sunshine of the bay window at the front of the house and is complete with a library of local information including pamphlets, books, maps and timetables. We are more than happy to sit with you for a few minutes to help plan your visit to West Cornwall. Glencree House is a short stroll to the main shopping & dining streets of Penzance, Penlee House with its gardens and cafe, the 1930's art deco open air lido, cinemas, museums and art galleries to mention a few. We are also conveniently located for the rail station, bus station, harbour and heliport for trips to the Isles of Scilly. ... more   less
