We stayed at Sophia's B&B for 3 nights and had a very pleasant time. The rooms were spacious, modern and clean and the service immaculate. The breakfast was served in front of us and the owner was a great person who cared about all her guests. the weather in Penzance was sunny and we've made the most of it. The... More

Stayed here for one night while walking the South West Coast Path. Compact room without much room to put our stuff without it being in the way. Good bathroom and big shower. Good breakfast, fruit and cooked full English. Very friendly hostess who doesn't live on the premises but made sure we felt at home. We'd be happy to stay... More

Early September we stayed for a few nights at Sophia's House B & B. It turned out to be a wonderful surprise, on account of its location (on the quiet side of the Penzance promenade close to the Queen's Hotel & unimpeded sea view), its interior decoration (modern design, including shower, and colourful contrasts & textures), comfort (comfortable beds, top...

From the central location and tasty breakfast to the cozy room and warm hospitality, It was a great stay. Will definitely consider again. The view is very relaxing and calming. The host is very charming and extremely helpful.

Excellent size room, very comfortable beds, lovely linen and duvet, nice bathroom with a very modern walk in shower. My mother had a downstairs... More

The rooms are well appointed with quality linen and fluffy toweling. Although we had the downstairs smaller room, it was still a very comfortable stay with a really comfy bed. The highlight is breakfast and Lynn's friendly hospitality. The local produce, especially the bacon, is fantastic. We'll definitely be back when next in Penzance.

I stayed two nights with my boyfriend in this B&B and we just loved it. It is about 10-15 minutes walk from the rail and bus stations but it is in front of the sea and it's on the promenade so it's a pleasant walk. This B&B is very close to the city centre and to Newlyn as well, so... More

The B&B is located right near the water, all you need to do is step outside and see a beautiful view. It was easy to find and free parking was available right in front of hotel until 9am. We've arrived around 9.30pm on a Sunday and the nice lady who runs this B&B explained where she left a key for... More

Stayed at Sophia's bed and breakfast in Penzance for three nights in July. The b&b was tastefully decorated with an amazing view of the sea. Our room on the first floor was spotlessly clean and the bed was super comfy. Lynne the host couldn't do enough to help and her local knowledge helped us make the most out of our... More
