We just spent 3 great nights at the Cornerways Guest House in Penzance. The location is perfect: a quiet, residential street that's a quick walk up from the train and bus stations. Also nearby is a nice local pub with a pleasant clientele. The rooms are immaculate, the breakfasts amazing, and the owner a delight. Thanks, Matt, for being so... More

Perfect location for Penzance Train Station. Matt is a true professional and makes you feel very welcome. Rooms are spotless and albeit small very comfortable. Would definitely recommend and will be staying again for sure.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. I booked a single room, and while it was small (which I expected), it was functional and had what I needed. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean. Full breakfast is included, with everything cooked to order, and Wifi is free. Matt is an extremely gracious host who made me feel welcome and... More

From our first enquiry to our departure, everything was done with great efficiency. 'Cornerways' is incredibly convenient for bus and train, if, like us, you no longer like driving. The guesthouse is small but everything is beautifully organised by Matt. The facilities, the breakfast, the helpful advice were everything one could wish for. WiFi is available in-house.

My partner and I booked the double room for a week and even extended the stay for another night because we liked it so much. Matt does a fantastic job by providing a very clean, beautifully decorated place with loads of complementary things (fresh fruit every day, some chocolate here, some biscuits there...). Plus he is a great person to... More

The Cornerways Guest House in Penzance was clean, comfortable, and less than a five-minute walk from the train and bus stations. Matt was prompt, professional, and courteous throughout the booking process, and he was the ideal host once I arrived. His recommendations were spot on - sights to see, places to eat, where to buy electrical adapters... His thoughtfulness even... More

My freind David &I stayed for several days and found the standard very high. Very clean (I'm neurotic about cleanliness and check everywhere). Great service offering extras. Information available on all sorts of things to do and see. 1 minute to trains,buses.

This is a very clean, very welcoming guesthouse and the room was a good size. Matt has the right balance of being really helpful without being overbearing. The breakfast is nice and the location is perfect for the train station. We will definitely stay again.
