We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Glencree House. Andrew was a wealth of knowledge and provided all of the assistance we needed during our two night stay. The rooms we well appointed and very clean. I would not hesitate to Glencree House to any traveler looking to spend time in the Penzance area.

This was a very clean and comfortable B&B. Andrew was the most friendly and helpful host, giving us lots of tips on restaurants and things to do in our time in Penzance. Amazing range at breakfast for those who might be a bit sick of full English breakfasts!

We have been coming to Glencree house for 6 years and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Penzance. Andrew and Lynsey are always very welcoming and willing to help. The breakfasts are very tasty and are made using local and fresh produce where they can.

Andrew and Lynsey provide a great stop over for anyone passing through the town. Service is attentive and thorough. Food excellent with local emphasis and plenty of choice. Very comfortable. I would recommend this to my friends. Very close to the seafront and sea-views from my room number 5

Lynsey and Andrew are the perfect hosts (and Andrew's breakfasts aren't too shabby either!). We've stayed at Glencree House several times over recent years, and we have never been disappointed. From the hosts' welcome to the lovely rooms (we've probably slept in most of them by now), it is a real joy to stay there. Their attention to detail and... More

Lovely big room and well furnished with vintage furniture. Wonderful breakfasts and a great friendly welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Local parking might be a bit difficult for those driving but not a problem for us as we arrived by train.

I am just back from a thoroughly great weekend of walking in Cornwall. Although I only stayed for one night at Glencree House, it was long enough to appreciate just how Andrew goes above and beyond what is expected to ensure his clients have a great stay. Superb local knowledge and literature available to assist with travel etc and without... More

Always a warm welcome - the rooms are all comfortable, well-equipped and very clean. Andrew and Lyndsay are spectacular hosts and their breakfasts are wonderful. It is in a good location to explore Penzance and other areas being very close to the bus route. I would stay here any time!

We stayed at Glencree the night before our journey to Scilly. The proprietor was really welcoming and helpful, he even brought us some milk for our two year old as we hadn't managed to stop at a supermarket en route. Room was bright, airy and very comfortable and had a great sea view, much to our son's delight. They provided... More
