Greeted by an old lady who took us to the wrong room first.When we got to our room we could not believe how grotty it was. There was no toilet in the room & the shower cubicle was almost touching the bed & very mouldy & grubby.Also white hair over the carpet , pet hair I would imagine . Coming... More

This young man of Spanish origin was within one inch of being requested to leave before he had been there 30 minutes due to his unbelievably rude behaviour. His much older female partner stepped in in time - she had booked the accommodation and paid for it up front on the telephone - I gave them a receipt for the... More

What a lovely place to stay. The owner Joy could not do enough for us and even allowed us to rehearse in her living room before our performance at The Newlyn Fish Festival.Thank you for your kind hospitality. The Fishwiveschoir.

I have just spent a wonderful week at Harbour View Guest House with my husband and daughter and we are unanimous in our appraisal. On arrival we were greeted by the owner Joy and from the onset she made our visit special by the warmth of her greeting and the fact that she couldn't do enough for us to ensure... More

I smelt a rat when the male asked on behalf of his partner what the continental breakfast consisted of. It actually consists of 8 varieties of fresh fruit, prunes, grapefruit, 10 varieties of cerial, brown or white toast (as much as you want), I offered them cheese or eggs, greek yoghurt (plain or flavoured), other fruit yoghurts, honey, jams and...

The harbour has a life of its own, independent and self sufficient from nearby Penzance. The freshness of the fish is magnificent. We have never tasted such 'crumbling to the taste' fish. The chipshop and nearby restaurants serves a great range of fresh fish dishes. There is a value for money Chinese takeaway. We ate in the local Red Lion... More

A group of 6 of us with 2 children stayed for 2 nights as part of a road trip in January 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our host was friendly and helpful and the accommodation comfortable and quirky in a good way. There were no issues with parking and the B and B provides a great base for exploring.... More

The wife and I recently stayed in the Harbour View Guest House for 2 nights. With our children away for the weekend on a school trip, we decided to make the most of some rare time alone and go on a trip of our own. After some searching on the net, we settled on Penzance as our destination... Upon arrival... More

Our 4th or 5th visit to Harbour View, (getting to be a habit!!), we stayed for 4 nights, 10th to 14th July in order to visit the Mousehole festival, hence the title of this review. To be honest, I don't know if I can add much to my previous reviews!! Harbour view, as the name suggests looks out over Newlyn... More

As promised, the rooms overlook the beautiful harbour. The view from the window looks like a painting. The bedroom was very nicely furnished - very warm and homey. They provide handphone charges in case we guests forget ours. They even provide ear plugs in case the neighbours are noisy. I really love how much thought they put into the details.... More
