“Lovely stay in an unusual setting”
Reviewed 2 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a lovely stay on the Ocean Warden, Penzance and the surrounding area have so much to offer - even when its pouring with rain!

The accommodation was compact but well designed and homely. TV reception wasn't great, but the decent wifi connection more than made up for it - and we didn't have much time to spare for television anyway.

The owners were very welcoming, and the breakfast which appeared in the cabin overnight was brilliant. My partner had some concerns about sea-sickness, but the position, size and mooring of the boat meant that any movement was minimal, despite the rough weather we encountered on the first night.

Overall a lovely couple of days in a pretty setting, made a nice change from the usual hotel accommodation.

“Amazing, unique overnight opportunity”
Reviewed 29 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed for 1 night; we got lucky as most people stay for a few nights yet we still got our berth! Wine and chocolates on arrival - such a nice touch. Roger is a perfect host - this stay is niche - not for people with mobility issues - but it is a real adventure and is so different to the norm. Accommodation is not huge, but you have everything you need; Roger has installed a brilliant new en suite with amazing power shower. Breakfast is continental - and truly awesome. The ship's history oozes, and is all-embracing!

Great VfM, great location - real fun! Accommodation is best suited to couples who can climb a ladder / steep steps!

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.

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.
