“Unique accommodation in great location”
Reviewed 10 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Well deserving of previous excellent reviews. Roger and Sue made us feel so welcome, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Everything is spotless, and we had a lovely breakfast in the wheelhouse every morning. Would definitely like to return.

“In the Top 5 worldwide”
Reviewed 14 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Not only the rental is very nice but we had the luck to have fantastic hosts . It was my husband's birthday and on the top of the card and the cake they organize for us a faboulous diner with lobster and crab ! Place is neat and modern when you arrive we found wine and chocolate waiting for us. It is very well located in Penzance . Just PERFECT

“Recommended to everyone”
Reviewed 17 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A**** delighted to have stayed on such a superb boat which was immaculate. The owners were welcoming and very friendly. Breakfast was amazing with a great choice to choose from it was a real treat, with a fantastic view of the harbour. Not just a room but the whole top deck we got to ourselves with dining area. The toilet was down a vertical ladder which was fun but go steady on your feet!! Overall a fantastic experience which I would recommend to anyone, we will be back if we're passing through. Much better than most hotels we have stayed in.

“Wonderful & Exciting”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have booked our accommodation with Sue and Rodger and it was our first time of being accommodated 'on board' and we enjoyed that to the full. Not only it was exciting to wake up every morning in the marina but the opulent breakfast which Sue and Rodger kindly prepared for us every morning gave us enough energy for the day adventures.
Sue and Rodger are very nice and extremely kind people with a great knowledge of the area.
On top of that Penzance itself is a brilliant place to explore Corwall - this the very southern and western tip of the UK.
We had a brilliant time and we would love to go back and I am sure we will at some point ever if it at least for a tea as Roger kindly suggested.

“SUPERB RELAXING BREAK.”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Captains Warden exceeded our expectations. Sue and Roger welcomed us warmly and explained everything we needed to know, including local information.

We were looking for a total relax without having to get up early for breakfast and that we got-- woken each day by the smell of fresh croissants, an abundance of fresh fruit, cereals etc. The accomodation was very comfortable, in fact we struggled to get up !!

A truly exclllent experience and we will be back.
