We had a short break here having not been to the area before. We were warmly greeted by Steve and Vanessa on arrival who couldn't have been more helpful. We were shown to our room, which was very spacious, clean and well maintained. We were very impressed with the size of the accommodation and it was decorated very well. We...

Absolutely worth it! The rooms are beautiful clean and spacious. The bed is huge and comfortable. The rooms comes with all the amenities (coffee/tea, kettle, a small living room). Price super honest. The hosts were lovely. Honestly I wish I would have stayed longer. Located near to the promenade, just 20 min walk from the station.

Welcoming, generous hosts who were willing to accommodate needs. Laundry and offer of a ride to the station for example. Great location, comfortable, clean and friendly place. I stayed two nights. Generous breakfasts! Penzance is an interesting city with plenty of wonderful countryside to explore. I found riding the double dicker bus through the countryside wonderful

We have just returned from a weeks stay at this lovely B&B. Steve and Vanessa were attentive hosts and the room was well looked after. We stayed in the attic room which was a treat, with an incredibly comfortable bed and even a kitchenette for our convenience. Breakfast was delicious with locally sourced food and cooked according to our preferences....

Stayed for one night. Room clean, owner very helpful. Easy to park on the road, wifi, tea facilities. Short 5 min walk into town. Good breakfast in the morning. Stayed in room 1 which was rear facing with a bath. A good selection of pubs and restaurants options close by.

Stayed here three times now and love the location and warm welcome. We have no hesitation in recommending this B & B and it is a lovely stroll onto the front or into town. No problems parking but once here better off using your legs or the local transport. The open top bus is a great way to see the...
