Stayed here as normal b&b full. The owners were both so welcoming and friendly and the bed was really comfortable. I dont think they could have anything more for us. I would recommend this to anyone. Lovely breakfast too. Thank you for a wonderful stay xxxx

We were recommended this B&B on a house purchasing trip to Cornwall and found the owners welcoming, accommodating and very willing to share local knowledge. We came away not just with a gorgeous fisherman's cottage, but also feeling that we had made a great contact for the future. We would certainly recommend this well-appointed and friendly guest house.

We stayed here while walking SW coast path. Friendly helpful guest house. Good room and breakfast and when we left an adapter behind the owner kindly called us and then brought it after us. Only disadvantage is if you walk from the station along the prom it is near the top of the road leading up. Once there though it... More

Very nice B&B, large rooms and good breakfast. A short walk to center of town through a very nice park. Penzance isn´t very beautiful, but it is close to Mousehole and easy to go by train to S:t Ives or other nice places.

I cannot say enough good things about this place and the people who run it! Only spent one night here at the start of a three week cycling tour of Cornwall but the experience really set a positive tone for the trip. Our room, a twin at the top floor facing the back yard, was a nice size, clean and... More

Stayed at Elmsdale on way to and from the Isles of Scilly. Located about 20 minute walk to ferry terminal or about 5 minutes by taxi. About 15 minute walk to town centre with lots of pubs and restaurants. The proprietor was very accommodating in serving breakfast from 7.30 so that we were able to make the ferry in good... More

Just what we needed, a comfortable, welcoming place to spend a night on our way to the Scillys. The owners were very helpful, even kindly giving us a lift to get the shuttle bus at Penzance station, when our taxi was late!! We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Just got back from a four night break in Penzance having stayed at the Elmsfield. Recommended to us by our next door neighbour and we were very pleased with the accomodation, location and Penzance in general. The breakfasts were excellent and Dick was a perfect host with some very good recommendations of where to visit, eat and drink. Many thanks... More

...in a perfect location. We have enjoyed the hospitality of the owners, as well as the clean and modern decorated room. Breakfast was very good. In the evening we followed Dick’s restaurant recommendations which were exellent (1x Taj Mahal Indian food just a few minutes walk and 1x “2 Fore Street” seafood restaurant in Mousehole approx. 3 miles).
