Stayed in this excellent B&B early October 2013. Large tastefully decorated room with all amenities, great breakfast, all at excellent rates. This guest house is located within 2 minutes of the train & bus stations, but in a very quiet location, and is ideal for walkers planning to use walks combined with the good local bus service,

Matt recommended a most scenic and pleasant walk from Penzance , passing Newlyn and eventually reaching Mousehole, which we really enjoyed. Will definitely be back again as we ran out... More

I spent my summer holidays in Penzance and could not have found a better place to stay. Matt is an incredible host, warm and welcoming and more than just accommodating. This little B&B is truly a gem, located conveniently near the train station and harbour, and still off the main roads. My room was nice and cosy, and always perfectly... More

We were transiting Penzance to Isles of Scilly and return. From our booking Cornerways B&B offered exactly what we needed in Penzance.Dynamic communication via e-mail; excellent location for the train station (and short walk to the harbour); airy, clean, comfortable room; acceptable breakfast plus a welcoming owner taking care of all our needs.

Great little B&B in Penzance. Easy walk from train (even with heavy luggage). Very clean and neat with a very pleasant host. Matt was very easy to talk to and nothing was a problem. Breakfast terrific and beds very comfortable. Free Wi-Fi a bonus. Great Stay, our friends and ourselves, HIGHLY recommend:)
