Bobby and Pat are a genuine, kind couple who really care about their guests. Top marks. Go out of their way to make sure guests are comfortable and know a lot about the local area to make good recommendations.

Great location close to the A30 for using as a base to see the best of West Cornwall. Close to a number of supermarkets (each with petrol station) should you need that too. Breakfast was tasty and plenty, rooms were clean and comfortable with a nice sea view. Pat and Bob were very friendly and hospitable and offered advice for...

We can't recommend this B&B highly enough. Beautiful house, with off street parking directly off the coastal road, yet very quiet. Situated within a few minutes drive of the town centre, local supermarkets, petrol station, and transport links. Our room at the front of the house was very spacious, comfortable and relaxing, offering lovely sea views, especially of St Michael's...

The owners were really kind to us. The rooms were clean and comfortable (Tea, coffee and water inside each bedroom). Breakfast was really good and they also served a gluten free breakfast as requested on booking. Just a 5 minutes walk from city center. Strongly recommended. Loved this place so much! More than expected.

From the prompt pre arrival communication and the warm welcome to the delivery of our boxed bicycles to the train station four days later, we realized that we had landed in the "Nirvana" of Penzance B and Bs. Pat and Bob's enthusiasm and hospitality shone throughout our stay. They are excellent travel advisers. The breakfast was superb and graciously served...

Clean, great breakfast, fantastic hosts. They were so helpful in finding local sights based on our interests. Comfortable beds. We booked two rooms. One of the rooms had a very good view to St Michael Mount. The view from the other room was not so good but it was quiet instead. I'll stay there again if I visit Cornwall.
