I stayed for 3 nights in the single en-suite room 'Kynance'. On my arrival Fee was very helpful and welcoming with a pot of fresh coffee and lots of advice on where to eat out and local attractions. The room was quite small but perfectly formed with all the necessary facilities, and was spotlessly clean. Being on the ground floor... More

So me and my husband booked Camilla house for several night back in Feb. We read great reviews about the place and it had a great rating, so we decided to book camilla house. Having arrived 11pm at night, we were very welcomed by the owners, however when we were taken to the room which was with sea view etc,... More

Dear Lizz201 I am the new owner of Camilla House and purchased the property at the end of February, I would presume a few weeks after your visit. It is unfortunate that your experience did not match up to the many great reviews that were normally received by the previous owners. I am unaware of the circumstances of your visit,... More

We stayed for 5 nights as a base for part of our Cornwall trip. Comfortable room with views over the harbour. Great place to base yourself for visits to The Minack Theatre, Land's End, St Ives, St Michael's Mount etc. Free carparking. Excellent breakfasts. Good suggestions by Fee on places to eat and very helpful.

My husband and I stayed at Camilla House for five nights as part of a trip around Cornwall and found it wonderful. Fee is new to being a B&B owner, but is a natural hostess. She gave us great recommendations about restaurants in the area, and provided a lovely breakfast every day. Our room was comfortable and quiet with the... More

We arrived early on the overnight sleeper train from London, and the owner, Fee, was very accommodating in allowing us to drop off our luggage with them whilst we explored the area. She also went out of her way to get the best priced taxi fare back from the Minnack Theatre, and booked it all with a local taxi firm... More

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.
