We have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Penrose Guest House and were made very welcome by Ann & Marc. The en-suite room was large, very clean with a powerful shower and a very comfortable bed. Free WiFi, a free information pack on Cornwall, and a selection of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits plus a jug... More

We needed to stay where we could walk to the Train & bus station. These are under a five minutes level walk. plus just as handy, the laundertte and the Longboat pub for reasonably priced dinners. We did enjoy staying thirteen nights and would set off in the bus or train most days. Trips extended to Lands End and up... More

Arriving on the sleeper from Paddington, being able to leave our luggage and set off walking, the bus station being very close, made it possible to do this walk in 3 days without having to worry about moving on. We highly recommend the experience.

Myself and my husband are walking the coast path and turned up with just an hour's notice. We were given a very warm welcome despite our muddy state, and shown to a very clean & comfortable room. Breakfast in the morning was very nice. The guest house was excellent value for money (£55) and we would certainly recommend it &... More

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 have just come back from staying at the Penrose Guest house for four nights stay and we would definitely recommend the guest house to others, who like us wanted accommodation close to the railway station. A perfect stay-breakfasts are wonderful-Thanks
