Friendly host and good location. But not all rooms have en-suite-bathrooms even though it says so in the reservation. We got a bathroom in a hallway next to another room. It was also missing some minor details like hooks or shelves to put your clothes or towel on. So a bit awkward and inconvenient.

We stayed here for two nights and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Mike is very friendly and helpful and we can't say enough about him as a host. The breakfast was great and the room was very clean and comfortable. Thank you Mike for a terrific stay in Penzance and all of your help with planning our crazy bus... More

We felt very welcomed upon arrival. There were many little details considered, and all bases were covered--local map, hair dryer, cotton buds, variety of teas, etc-little things that add up. Great value. Only silly negatives were slightly dated interior decor and smallish shower. But would totally recommend as base for anyone coming to this area of the country.

We felt welcome as soon as we stepped into the house - Mike was both friendly and helpful during our 2-day stay, providing us with restaurant and bus information. We enjoyed the calm atmosphere, our lovely spacious, clean top-floor room with a comfy bed and breakfasts were good, too! We would definitely return here or recommend to others.

Mike is a most gracious and hospitable host at this lovely guest host conveniently located on a pleasant side street just off the main ocean promenade. Our room was spacious and clean and the location made it very easy to walk into the main town for eating and shopping.

Upon our arrival we were met by Mike, the owner, what a great host! We just wanted somewhere to stay that was homely, close to the places we wanted to see in Cornwall and were we could just relax. Westbourne House met all of these requirements. The room was clean, it had everything we needed and the ensuite was functional... More

Good location. Walking to pubs & restaurants took roughly 10 minutes. Mike, the owner, is super nice and accommodating. The house was clean and well kept. Our frugally-furnished room was large and clean with new carpet, but missing power outlets on either side of the bed for charging phones, and there was only a night stand on one side of... More

Although I only stayed for the one night on 14th May for business purposes I was sorely tempted to make up a few extra appointments so that I could stay for longer! The guest house is situated in a lovely road and only a stones throw from the sea front Mike is an absolute gem and to be fair after... More

What fantastic service. This will be top of our list... More
