My family went to Penzance for our wedding and were warmly received. The location was excellent, only a min or two from the sea front, also close to all the shops in town centre. The apartment was nicely decorated, modern but with a person touch. Owners were very friendly and helpful. I didn't stay with them for breakfast but they... More

Four of us stayed here, in two double rooms, on a 100-mile walking trip in Cornwall. It was our favorite of the nine places we stayed, thanks to the warm welcome and attentive care of the owners (Andrew and Lynsey), the attractive and comfortable rooms, the huge and delicious breakfasts, the excellent library, and the convenient yet quiet location.

Mine was a trip on impulse, but I was able to book at Glencree House for three nights. Having travelled 14 hrs. by coach, I arrived late on Tuesday night. I was welcomed by Andrew the young Ausralian owner. He conveyed the impression that I was a VIP guest as he showed me to my comfortable, en suite room. Nothing... More

Used Penzanze as base for 3 day visit to area, Drew was really helpful and friendly. Big selection for breakfast with good coffee. Room was spacious and clean but a bath would have been nice. Would definitely recommend this place and hope to visit again.

At the beginning of August, I stayed for 3 nights at Glencree House with my mother and although I thought it a bit far from the train station, we were very pleased to receive such a nice greeting from Andrew and an excellent accomodation. We had the double room with ensuite on the top floor not facing the sea which... More

My teenage son and I stayed at the Glencree for 5 nights. We were made to feel very welcome upon our arrival, even though we'd arrived just after breakfast, during their busiest time. The Glencree is homely, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Nothing was too much trouble for Andrew and Lyndsey. We opted for a packed lunch for my son... More

I stayed at Glencree for 6 nights just 2 weeks ago and enjoyed every minute. Andrew and his lovely wife Lynsey made me feel so welcome. The breakfasts were wonderful with local fresh fruit and juices I especially loved the toasted bagel with cream cheese, scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. My room was super comfortable and clean and the home... More

I went to Glencree with my parents and we had a great time. Andrew, the owner, is extremely kind and knowledgeable about the area. Since the moment we checked in, he helped us scheduling a fantastic 4 days trip in the surrounding area. We covered most of the area and all his suggestions were right. The B&B is super clean,...
