Good location, right next to the Train Station. Had a warm welcome by the landlady and was able to leave our luggage while we explored Penzance as our room was not ready. Nothing was to much trouble and breakfast was excellent. Worth staying again

Good location, but.. The foyer is cluttered and dirty, the room was dirty, the shower was dirty. I would not recommend this Guest House to anyone. The owner was on holiday, with his computer, and our booking was not with the young man running the place.

The location of the guest house was great, just few minutes from train/ bus station and town centre by walking. However, the single room I stayed was untidy. I mean, I don't mind if the furniture is old or not, but at least it must be clean. I found some trash that was left by last customers on the floor.... More

I almost don't want to tell anyone about this place, as it was perfect for us and I want it to stay available for me to use. Breakfast was awesome! Fantastic homemade jams and marmalade. The Landlady is so nice! Very helpful and personable. Thanks for a great stay!

Three of us stayed here for one night, to get the morning train. The location is excellent - on the main street adjacent to the station, near the bus station, and an easy walk to the boat to the Scilly Isles. However, the accommodation itself was showing a combination of age, and neglect. Breakfast is included - avoid the sausages... More

Not a very good greeting.. Or very friendly. Decoration poor.. Everything seems old.. Even the fish in the fish tank which needs a good clean out....But good location..would just recommend it if your on a tight budget . However there are better places for a few pounds more.

I couldn't believe the smell as you enter and the room wasn't much better. Had to go to the local shop to buy some air fresheners. The bed linen was soiled the view from the window was of the station wall. If you like traffic noise you'll feel right at home as the guest house is on the main road... More

2 egg and bacon sandwiches and 2 small coffees cost £13.80 to take away. Thats not right! And the fact that I asked the price and he wouldnt tell me until after he made it was wrong. I couldn't even say that I payed for service as the moody one word answers made me feel almost uneasy. Definitely will not... More
