I am irresistibly drawn back to Cornerways when I venture west and I have never been disappointed. My most recent visit was late October/early November 2015 and I found that Matt is maintaining consistently high standards of comfort, cleanliness and friendliness. My room was capacious and comfortable with plenty of storage space for clothes etc. Breakfasts were sumptuous and Matt... More

This is the second time I have stayed at Cornerways and I decided to return after the excellent welcome I received from Matt, especially as he opened up the guest house especially for me earlier in the month. The location is perfect for the train station and also Penzance town centre. I have stayed in a single and a twin... More

Matt is a smashimg guy and gave us a great welcome. The room was very clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were bob on and hit the right spot. We stayed 4 nights and had a great time very good value for money. Excellent position just minutes away from bus and train station. Highly recommended.

Cornerways is a little gem of a place - a B&B with a great location and offering the sort of welcome more usually associated with a 5* hotel. It's a lovely old house, two minutes walk from Penzance's rail and bus stations and hence a perfect base for a car-free holiday exploring West Cornwall, as well as being a short... More

We had never been to Penzance before and were pleasantly suprised at the reception and the location of this establishment. The train and bus station are just 5 mins. walk away. The owner, Matt, is most helpful and knowledgeable regarding the south of Cornwall. The rooms are clean and nothing is defect ! All in all a recmmendable B&B.

Cosy and homely feeling to this little guest house! 4 rooms only, one double, one twin and two single. And very reasonably priced. Tasty, cooked breakfast ( saw local produce being delivered at the door by farmers wife).Sausages best ones my husband had ever tasted in GB( and HE used to be a butcher). Nicely decorated rooms with attention to... More

We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of our trip to Cornwall. Our first nights we were walking the South West Coast Path - it was spectacular. We stayed here because it was available, inexpensive and was well reviewed. We were not disappointed. All in all, good value for the money. It was clean and everything was fine.... More

Although the room was tiny, it was perfect! Thoughtful attention to detail made all difference. Matt is a lovely balance between German care and efficiency and warm hospitality. The situation was ideal for us, near transport and walking distance to everything we needed, (including the best little pub just over the road) it is just off the main thoroughfare so... More
