The corner House, was a really nice place to stay. We stayed for four nights and had a downstairs room, which was very comfortable, clean and had everything we could possibly need. On our travel down to Cornwall, we experienced problems with our car and our host's Norman and Diane, were ever so helpful, and took time to inform us... More

We had the Superior room on the top floor and had a marvellous sea view. Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. We also loved the Laura Ashley-esque curtains! Breakfast was delicious, including fresh fruit and various pastries. Also, we also got complimentary bottled water and shortbread every day in our room. This B&B is located directly on the... More

We were very late in booking this little gem of a bed and breakfast house. The owners were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room we occupied was small but it was the last room available. The other rooms are much larger. There were plenty of teas and coffees together with really nice biscuits and, a small... More

We stayed for 3 nights at The Corner House during Easter holidays. It is a lovely B&B, run by a very friendly couple, on the seafront of Penzance. We particularly enjoyed the cleanliness of the bedroom and bathroom, the good breakfast with a wide variety of choice, the kindness of the owners and the availability of free parking spaces at...

Nice bb on Penzance seafront, the building is from mid `800 and has some character, probably a bit noisy but is extremely well kept and maintained by the owners. The room was very clean and probably on the small size, with an even smaller bathroom but apparently this is the norm in this part of cornwall as several hotels and... More

My husband had three enjoyable days at the Corner House. It is close enough to the bus or train stations to walk. It is also in walking distance of the Scillian, for those who want to take the ship to the Isles of Scilly for a day. (Highly recommended, but do remember the seasick pills!) Breakfasts were very good and... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay, this is a good standard B&B who's owners do as much as they can too make your stay enjoyable. Our room was very good, everything you needed was there. The choice of food at breakfast was as good as any high end hotel we have stayed in. On the down side parking can... More

Stayed at the Corner House for one night and Norman, our host, was kind enough to give us his parking slot on the road as parking nearby was impossible. Our room on the first floor was bright, homely and clean and the bathroom facilities were fine. Norman gave us useful suggestions for eating out and Diane rustled up a good... More

Actually, this wasn't our choice of place to stay initially, however, booking.com made a new booking in this B&B as the one we booked was full. We got to say that it was a nice "mistake". I stayed there for three night (left this morning) and honestly I regretted we didn't stay longer! The host, Norman was very friendly and... More
