We stayed for four nights there in early August. The guesthouse is just a few minutes walk from the train station (and the bus station is just next to it). Even with our huge amount of luggage this was not a problem. The town centre is maybe a 15 min stroll away, add a few minutes for the pier of... More

We stayed for two nights and the room was lovely, very comfortable with a sea view, parking is on street but there is usually a place within the streets around the guest house. The breakfast was very tasty and an extensive choice. Hosts made blankets etc. available for our visit to a performance at Minack, very thoughtful. Great location for... More

I stayed 7 nights at Penrose Guest House - from 16th July to 23rd July and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. In my view, Penrose Guest House is second to none. Firstly, the location is perfect, as it is placed in a quiet street close to the railway station and the bus station as well, which was essential for... More

We only stayed one night and regret we didn’t book longer as there is a lot to see in this area and the Penrose is a lovely place to stay. The location is excellent, just a few minutes walk from the railway station and a pleasant walk from numerous local pubs, restaurants and the harbour. We loved the peaceful atmosphere... More

Many thanks for your review and the many kind comments. Very glad your stay, although short, was enjoyable. Very sorry about the lack of fridge, but this is normally a facility only offered by licensed premises, for use as a minibar, or in self catering accommodation. We do gladly offer space in our fridge to guests. We hope the rest... More

After a long journey from Kent, this was a lovely place to rest and prepare ourselves for our boat trip to Scilly the next morning. Marc and Anne were kind and accommodating hosts and their breakfast was utterly delicious. A very lovely place to stay in Penzance.

I just came back from staying at the Penrose Guest House for two nights with my sister in the twin room.

Two nights, one at the start and one at the end of a week on Scillies. The ideal hosts and a warm welcome. A lovely old house with character and everything the traveller could need. Super breakfast. 5 minutes the station and 15 minutes to the boat. Many thanks Marc and Anne from Ron and Anne
