It was my 2nd visit to Cornerways Guest House and I was as pleased as I had been during my 1st stay! The rooms are very clean, Matt is an incredibly considerate host, and the breakfast is fantastic. In addition to that the house is only a short walk away from town centre (about 5 minutes) and the ferry terminal... More

One of the very nicest guest houses I have stayed in and probably others think so too for I was only able to get in for only half of my time in Penzance. Next time I will book well in advance. Cornerways is a delightful place and my single room was most comfortable with all the facilities and extras that... More

Since my first visit to Cornerways (which was itself a great experience), it is clear that Matt has worked even harder on improving the standard of his cosy and friendly guest house. The attention to detail is exemplary. From the high-quality dining room crockery to the custom-made bed linen, nothing is overlooked. As ever, the welcome is warm and nothing... More

Got the last room at Cornerways when we were stranded in Penzance due to a cancelled Skybus flight to the Isles of Scilly. The place was spotlessly clean and Matt was a fantastic host, very friendly and when the TV did not work in the room (not the end of the world) was so helpful and swapped it over for... More

I returned to Cornerways for a fortnight in June 2015 and found that Matt maintains a consistently high standard of accommodation. He is a very welcoming host and an invaluable source of information about the West Cornwall area. My room was comfortable and very well serviced and there was plenty of storage space. There was an ingeniously sited rack above... More

Matt is a helpful and welcoming host. The rooms are clean, comfortable and functional, the breakfast is of a good standard. Very well situated for the bus and trains, making it a good hub to visit the whole area of west Cornwall. A very enjoyable stay.

I had another very pleasant holiday at Cornerways Guest house. The room and the en suite were spotlessly clean as usual. The cooked breakfasts were spot on. The location is ideal for exploring the western tip of Cornwall. I will definitely return, that's for sure. Thank you to Matt and his staff.

I stayed four nights in order to walk the South West Coast Path from Penzance to St Ives, using the buses to get me to/from the start/end of each day's walk. Cornerways is in an excellent position, 4 minutes from railway and bus stations and in a quiet location. Matt was most hospitable and provides facilities for drying wet clothes... More
