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. I would definitely recommend the guest house to others, and especially to visitors who like me, visit Cornwall by train. The guest house is perfectly positioned less than five minute walk from the railway and bus stations, in a... More

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

Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review. Sorry about not offering the fresh milk. We try to for every arrival, but it is always available on request. We only provide fresh water in our en-suite rooms as their tap water is not nice to drink. However, the water from the tap in your bathroom is fresh mains... More

We stayed for one night as stopover before our flight to The Isles of Scilly. The hosts were extremely helpful and prepared a package containing all tourist information you could possibly wish to know, lovely tea/coffee tray with my favourite Brand tea, loaded with fresh milk. Excellent location close to restaurants and traditional pubs. The hidden Gem nearby was the... More

I stayed here for 3 nights over the May bank holiday. It's perfectly located right opposite the station, so also near long stay parking ( you'll be lucky to park on the street outside!). My room was nicely furnished, with a decent size ensuite and a power shower. I asked for a fan as it was a little warm which... More

Particularly friendly and welcoming hosts, comfortable beds and great breakfasts. Very easy walk from the station and very close to the bay. I've stayed here several times before and always have a lovely stay. Highly recommend it.
