I stayed here last summer for 3 nights. It is a nice little B&B, and the owners do a great job at making you feel welcome. When we arrived, the owner even showed us the best place to park which was really helpful. The cooked breakfast is really nice, I opted for this every morning of my stay! The first... More

Cozy clean bedrooms with nice decoration. Close to the railway station. Friendy owners. Hot water all day. Every day cleaning. Towels and sheets have fresh and clean smelling. Rich Cornish breakfast suitable for vegeterians too. Also free Wi Fi. I am so happy I choose that B&B for my accommodation in Penzance. I definitely recommend it. Reasonable prices and offers...

The only positive was the fact that the B&B was two minutes walk from the Railway Station. We were visiting friends for one evening, it was the end of a 5 day trip from Scotland to Dartmouth and Penzance. The double bed just fitted into the bedroom. The extremely small shower room (?) had a sliding door and a small... More

Was very convenient from the station as we were simply traveling down from London and back the next day to experience the Dawlish stretch and a few bridges. B&B was comfortable and an excellent breakfast served in the morning.

This B&B is conveniently located: close to the railway station and the harbour area, walking distance from the city centre. Even if it doesn't have a private parking, it's easy to find a parking space nearby. The B&B owners are really nice. Cleanliness in the bedroom was't perfect. More attention should be paid to this detail. Despite being on the... More
