My mother and I stayed for two nights in a twin room, which was of average size, and -though fully equipped with a particularly impressive ensuite - was dark with outdated decor. The DVD player did not work and the beds were quite small. Despite a varied breakfast menu, you are restricted to an English fry-up OR a bagel OR... More

My partner & I wanted to use Penzance (where he lived as a child) as a home base for sightseeing in Cornwall. Camilla House was ideally situated for that purpose. My favorite castle/museum was St. Michael's Mount. We saw a tin mine that was active in the 1800s. We traveled short distances to fishing villages and beaches along the dramatic... More

Our 7 nights stay in Camilla House has been simply perfect. The room was splendid and had lovely views. Inmaculate cleanliness. Excellent and really complete breakfast with 1st quality ingredients. We want to state, specially, the attention given by Fiona, the owner and responsible person. She provided very useful advice about the restaurants and touristic places in the area. We... More

A wonderful elegant historic Georgian/Regency Gem with ocean views. We had one of the main front rooms that overlooked the seafront and the sight of moonlight over the bay @ night was unforgettable. The room was large and well appointed and the bathroom was brand new and immaculate. The breakfasts were excellent and generous and served efficiently yet with warmth... More

We chose Camilla House based on a recommendation from Rick Steve's book on England. We booked three rooms for five nights (June 1-6, 2015). The stay was absolutely excellent, thanks to our lovely host Fiona, who pays close attention to detail. For starters, the location makes for an easy walk up the hill to the high street, where one of... More

The owner, Fee could not have been more accommodating during my recent stay. She put herself out to make sure she was there when I arrived and when I needed space to work during the day. The room although small was spotlessly clean and perfectly adequate. The private bathroom although not in the room was again spotless. Breakfast was great... More

Fiona is an excellent hostess. She provided me with lots of information about where to go and means of transportation. I stayed in a single room at Camilla House in April. The room, named Kynance, was on the main floor and conveniently arranged. It was clean, very quiet, and had great reading light. The bathroom similarly, was small but well... More
