We loved our stay at the Summer House. The sitting room and breakfast room was beautifully appointed. Breakfast was great, the bed was comfortable, towels were thick and although the shower was a little small, the water pressure was fantastic. Kat and Johnathon were terrific hosts and looked after all our needs. I would highly recommend this accomodation to anyone... More

We also stayed here (for nearly two weeks) under the new owner - it took us a couple of days to stop telling him how wonderful it was! Lovely light, airy room, so clean I thought it had been redecorated, really comfortable bed, linen, duvet etc... ample supplies of tea and coffee, everything worked - even the hot water was... More

Clean, but small accommodation, tiny bathroom, and wardrobe only big enough for a weekend. The breakfast was adequate, full Cornish breakfast consisted of One tomato two rashers of bacon, a few tinned mushrooms, and a fried egg. Over priced.....more like a B and B than a Hotel

After 3 nights staying at The Summer House we can highly recommend this boutique hotel. Linda and Ciro are fantastic hosts. Our room was immaculate and had everything you would expect, including one of the finest showers! A pre-dinner drink in the garden or lounge is a wonderful way of ending a busy day sightseeing. Ciro is an outstanding chef... More

We spent 4 nights at this hotel and had a most enjoyable stay. Our room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The only negative point is that the television needs updating to a flat screen version. The breakfast was excellent - all freshly cooked and with a choice. There was also a good selection of 'help yourself to' items,... More

What a relaxing place to stay in Penzance. the decor really reminds us of a mediterranean summer residence. there is outside seating in the courtyard for a G&T before dinner. Evening meals are a treat. thank you Linda and Ciro for your warm welcome and great food.

We arrived and were met with a gruff hello. "Instructions" were given on how to enter the house with a variety of keys. I made the mistake of suddenly mentioning that we would be late back and was told that "I'm trying to explain about the keys". We had read all the previous reviews and would have loved a drink...
