I have been reluctant to write a review for this B&B, as you will probably understand when you read on, but thought others may find it useful. We booked into here for a short break, expecting 4 star standard. I was initially disapointed with the room as it had a Saniflow toilet and no bath and a cramped leaky shower,... More

Thank you for your review and I really appreciate your taking the time to give us feedback and your commitment to ensure that other guests expectations are met. Unfortunately, there were only two items from your review that were drawn to my attention whilst you were here, ie, the next room snorer and the noisy macerator on the toilet. It... More

We booked into this place as a result of previous reviews. When we arrived we realised that ownership had changed very recently and the new owners were not as knowledgable as we expected. There were a few glitches during our stay, but overall it's a great little b&b and delivers good value for money. The bed was excellent.

Stay here for 4 nights and it was a pleasure. We got there early and was allowed to drop our luggage off. Fee spent at least 20 minutes with us, telling the best places to eat and visit. Breakfast was a good range and had different time slots. We had a room which looked out to the sea and was... More

We stayed here for 4 nights on a vacation that took us all over England. This stands out as the nicest lodging. The room was clean, quiet and nicely furnished. The hostess was incredibly helpful and made our visit to Penzance much more rewarding. I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a warm, welcoming B&B experience.

This year Camilla House in Penzance was our third stay on our journey through Devon and Cornwall. We came in May from South-Germany and had a long way to travel. My wife and me spent four nights in Camilla House together with our daughter and her husband and it was as brilliant as it was four years ago. Fee and... More

Top marks to the new owners for providing everything one needs to stay in Penzance in Georgian style. The bed, particularly, (6 foot wide), was most comfortable and every facility is available from quality toiletries to fluffy towels and bathrobes. The breakfast menu (you decide the evening before) was well cooked and presented with full "cornish", fruit and cheese platter... More

Fee and Curro are new owners, and their enthusiasm and passion for hospitality are great! Our five night stay was wonderful...the room was beautifully appointed, extremely quiet and comfortable with ocean breezes (and views) adding to charm. The house is plain outside, but inside eclectically and beautifully decorated in quiet quality. Breakfast made to order and delicious (Curro can cook!).... More
