As soon as we walked in it smelt like animals and there was no one to greet us. Our room was filthy!! The shower (in the "ensuite" which was a converted cupboard) was mouldy and the pipes were coming away from the wall. The extracter fan was caked in dust. The carpets were stained and there was a toenail on... More

We stayed for two nights ! Piracy at its best, OMG there is a smell I can only describe as a 10 year old curry house! It makes me wonder if anybody ever checks the standards. This place does no favours for the Penzance/ Cornish tourist industry. Sorry never again.

we only stayed one night thankfully. This place is filthy, an old sofa in the dining room covered by dirty blanket and pillow. dust and cobwebs everywhere. The room was dirty and the bathroom needed a good deep clean, black all round shower area. would not stay here again.

On arrival we were greeted by the owner who was very friendly and shown to our room. Well! My children have been to university and there accommodation was much better than this. The carpet was dirty as was the sink and toilet look as if they hadn't been cleaned in a long time. The bed well we decided to sleep... More

How this place passes fire regs or food hygiene or health and safety I do not know. Foul stench of Cafe cooking imprinted everywhere. Greasy walls and sticky floors even in bedrooms. Carpets disgustingly stained. Fire door to room 12 too small so would fail to keep smoke out in a fire. Door to single room sealed occupant in and... More

I frequently stay here as I live on the Isles of Scilly and often have an overnight stay in Penzance either side of my journey. The location for me is brilliant, just across the road from the train station which is ideal as I always travel by train. It's also right by the shops and the Longboat is next door... More

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
