My and my partner stayed for 3 nights in June. The guest house is absolutely lovely, great location - right on the promenade, great restaurants / pubs near by and about 5-10 mins walking distance to the harbour & city centre, specious terrace for sunny days, beautiful views of the bay, decent breakfast options, parking is available for free just...

The Shoreline is a bed and breakfast establishment on the sea front in Penzance, south Cornwall. It's one of the new style B&Bs where you don't often see many staff - other than at breakfast - but other than that, the place was a perfect base to explore Cornwall. The rooms are compact but beautifully decorated and the whole place... More

For four nights my wife and I stayed in a double room at this B&B and two of our friends had single rooms. All the room and the bathrooms are small - not luxurious but clean and well kept. There are many additional features, including HiFi and TV. The owners dealt by email most efficiently and courteously with our enquiries... More

This is a small, well-kept B&B just across the road from the beach. Decked front terrace with seating, sun beds and sea view right round Mounts Bay. Delicious breakfasts. Friendly, professional staff. Close to town centre and buses. 10 walk to train station and harbour.

Maybe this is a new trend in B&Bs with absentee landlords? We had booked online some 3 days previously because we had been travelling around other places in Cornwall. Arrived about 3.30pm and there was no-one in and the door was locked. We came back at 5pm. and still the same. We looked up the telephone number associated with the... More

The room was a little on the small side, we had to ask for towels for the shower but overall it served its purpose. Jack sorted out the towels pretty promptly though. The breakfast was excellent. Only downside was that after returning from breakfast, even though out cases were still in the room, the bed had been made ready for... More

Room excellent, apart from the very small en-suite (they are all 'compact', apparently). Great views, though. Everything clean. There was even a fridge. No car park, but that's the norm in Penzance. There is parking outside, but we were there during a festival, and it was very busy. We parked in a nearby hotel's car park (at a cost, but... More

I had a great 5 night stay here, the room was very comfortable and well maintained. There was a TV and tea/coffee making in the room and free WIFI.The bathroom was a little small but served it's purpose and there was shower gel and shampoo for your use. The view from the room over Mounts Bay was superb with views... More

We very much enjoyed our one-week stay at Liv's blossom room in her bed & breakfast hotel in Penzance. The place is very well-cared, that is the room was lovely furnished in light colours, very clean, and the breakfast was unexpectedly "exquisite", just using the best local ingredients. What is most worthy-noting, however, is the hostess's helpfulness, not only in... More

We stayed in a room at the front overlooking the sea although a bit small, the view was fantastic. The room was kept very clean and nothing was too much trouble. It was very hot during our stay in Penzance and when we mentioned this to Liv (the Owner) she provided us with a fan for our room and a... More
