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

Cornerways has been the most amazing find for this seasoned visitor to Cornwall. I have stayed there four times in the last year or so and I have been consistently impressed by the quality and friendly atmosphere of the house. It could not be more conveniently located for the traveller arriving in Penzance from up country by rail or coach.... More

Enjoyed a relaxing few days in Penzance. Owner was very welcoming and location was perfect for train travellers such as myself. Room was clean and comfortable. Lovely fresh breakfast and lots of guest information available. A great place to stay in Cornwall

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
