I'm staying here for the weekend and what a find! I didn't fancy staying in Penzance itself, but this is a great alternative. The rooms are lovely - very comfortable, well set up and equipped and the restaurant serves delicious food. As a coeliac (allergy to gluten), eating out can be a problem, but they're on top of it here... More

All the reviews we had read were excellent and we were not disappointed. The Smugglers is in a great location overlooking Newlyn harbour. Our room was warm, cosy and welcoming and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The bathroom was spacious, nicely fitted and very clean. The room was very private with its own little courtyard where we sat and enjoyed... More

Run by Stephen & Barbara- she is front of house and Stephen is chained to the kitchen. Barbara welcomed us warmly and took us to our room, pointing out the most important feature- there is wifi in the rooms ! Very rare around this area. The room, Harvey, was up a set of wooden stairs and very comfortably appointed. The... More

We didn't eat at the restaurant as we stayed there on a Sunday evening (restaurant closed). It's a great B&B. The welcome was warm without being intrusive or over the top. The room was very comfortable. The establishment is very convenient to bars and other restaurants. The breakfast was very good ... and while eating you have a fantastic view... More

Barbara was a lovely host & looked after us well. Really nice accommodation, but unfortunately rooms without views. However, all very clean, tidy & comfortable. We stayed 2 nights & ate in their restaurant on both occasions. Although we never saw Steve, his cooking was excellent & my wife and I cannot compliment the menu choices + service highly enough....

Stayed for one night - welcomed by the friendly owner who took trouble to settle us in despite being busy with the restaurant. The spacious room appeared newly decorated, and was very nicely furnished, with a clean, fresh shower room. The location is good, overlooking the harbour with good views from the restaurant and close to a selection of pubs.... More

We booked ahead as a busy restaurant. We six hungry blokes arrived having walked from Penzance some 20 minutes away. A pretty establishment opposite the working harbour of Newlyn. Barbara welcomed each if us and put us in a window table so we could see the harbour. A nice wine, Muscatel, was chosen by one of our party to match... More

No pavement outside so loading and unloading is a little tricky. Parking either across the road (pay and display) or harbour car park (payable 24 hrs). Rooms are at the back. No views. Overlooked by other neighbours above. Room dark ang slightly damp. Breakfast was fine although the view across the harbour is obscured by a window bar right in... More
