Got the last room at Cornerways when we were stranded in Penzance due to a cancelled Skybus flight to the Isles of Scilly. The place was spotlessly clean and Matt was a fantastic host, very friendly and when the TV did not work in the room (not the end of the world) was so helpful and swapped it over for... More

I returned to Cornerways for a fortnight in June 2015 and found that Matt maintains a consistently high standard of accommodation. He is a very welcoming host and an invaluable source of information about the West Cornwall area. My room was comfortable and very well serviced and there was plenty of storage space. There was an ingeniously sited rack above... More

Matt is a helpful and welcoming host. The rooms are clean, comfortable and functional, the breakfast is of a good standard. Very well situated for the bus and trains, making it a good hub to visit the whole area of west Cornwall. A very enjoyable stay.

I had another very pleasant holiday at Cornerways Guest house. The room and the en suite were spotlessly clean as usual. The cooked breakfasts were spot on. The location is ideal for exploring the western tip of Cornwall. I will definitely return, that's for sure. Thank you to Matt and his staff.

I stayed four nights in order to walk the South West Coast Path from Penzance to St Ives, using the buses to get me to/from the start/end of each day's walk. Cornerways is in an excellent position, 4 minutes from railway and bus stations and in a quiet location. Matt was most hospitable and provides facilities for drying wet clothes... More

Cornerways has been the most amazing find for this seasoned visitor to Cornwall. I have stayed there four times in the last year or so and I have been consistently impressed by the quality and friendly atmosphere of the house. It could not be more conveniently located for the traveller arriving in Penzance from up country by rail or coach.... More

We just spent 3 great nights at the Cornerways Guest House in Penzance. The location is perfect: a quiet, residential street that's a quick walk up from the train and bus stations. Also nearby is a nice local pub with a pleasant clientele. The rooms are immaculate, the breakfasts amazing, and the owner a delight. Thanks, Matt, for being so... More
