Just an excellent B&B. Andrew was a great host; very helpful with ideas for hikes along the coast, and provided guidebooks as well. Breakfast was delicious, and there are many options to choose from, including vegetarian. The breakfast room was comfy and we had nice chats w/other guests. The free WiFi in our room worked well. The price was an... More

We came for the second time with our two sons and are already planning our next stay here. It`s just a perfect place to spend some lovely days in Cornwall. Breakfast and packed lunch are excellent. Andrew is very helpful with planning a nice day out.

This was our first visit to Penzance. Stayed for 2 nights and found the accommodation clean, bright and airy. The breakfast was excellent, as was our packed lunch. Only 2 minor quibbles - the shower in our en suite was tiny even for someone of average size, and we had difficulty getting wi-fi in our room (No 5). However, this... More

We stayed at Glencree House for one night when ending our there week walk of the coast path in Penzance. Andrew was great. We called him earlier in the day to confirm check in arrangements and we met him on arrival. The home is a very elegant. Our room was very nice and it overlooked the backyard and a lawn... More

Just like last year, I stayed with my mum in this lovely guesthouse because we felt great the last time we were here. This time we had room No. 2 which has a half-view of the sea and gives a view into Andrew's backyard. This time we got to know their little daughter and heard the kids playing in the... More

Our room was superb, clean, and a lovely view of the bowling green and the sea. The breakfast choice was amazing best we have ever had in a Guest... More

So enjoyed our short stay right from the moment of being warmly greeted on arrival. The breakfast was superb with the emphasis on the individual, nothing was too much trouble. We didn't feel like paying guests, more like friends they were having to stay! Would heartily recommend staying here.

We enjoyed our stay at Glencree House which is well located for exploring the Penwith Peninsular and the Lizard in West Cornwall. The large Victorian House is well maintained and nicely furnished. Our room had a nice view and was comfortable and clean. Andrew and Lynsey were excellent hosts and always friendly and ready to help with travel arrangements, packed... More

Glencree is just a lovely place to stay. All the amenities you could want and the best breakfast ever. We arrived dripping wet from biking and Andrew made us right at home in minutes, showed us where to dry our stuff and we settled in to a large very comfortable room.
