The hosts (Pat and Bob) are really friendly and helpful. They provided us with plenty of information - not only about our stay in Cornwall, but even for the next station on our trip. The room was clean and we had a nice view towards the sea. We enjoy thinking back about our 3 days stay in Penzance - also... More

I can't praise the Halcyon enough! It has to be the ultimate b and b for me and Roz, my travelling companion. We were both bowled over by Bob and Pat's friendliness and felt as though they were old friends. Location is wonderful and overlooking Mount's Bay, rooms are clean and comfortable more than most and breakfast is something to... More

Enjoyed a fantastic 2 night break at the Halcyon in July. Our room was clean and comfy and even had a view of St Michaels Mount from the huge bay window. Pat and Bob are two of the nicest people you can meet who will make you feel very welcome and are really helpful with info and directions to the... More

Ignore any previous negative comments about the Halcyon. There is nothing negative to be able to comment upon. A friend and I have just had a wonderful weeks holiday at the Halcyon. All areas are spotlessly clean. Our bedroom had a sea view - always a plus for me. The en-suite had shower gel and shampoo for your use. A... More

I think I should dispel a few myths about this place. DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU HAVE KIDS. The hosts don't come out openly and say they don't want kids but any kid that turns up under the age of 12 better beware because their parents are likely to get greeted with a comment like "I thought (your child)...

After allowing your 8 year old son to flood the bedroom and dining room below (because you were watching tv and didn't notice he had put the plug in the sink and turned on the tap, this flood was your fault because of lack of supervision from you - not his) We only realised when the main lights fused and...

Genuine warmth and generosity, plenty of well-prepared food with no lack of choice, careful attention to cleanliness, and plenty of information for the newcomer to Cornwall make this guest house a reliable choice for a peaceful and pleasant stay. Bob and Pat went out of their way in time and trouble to make my visit and the logistics of travel... More

I was in Penzance with my parents and we found this place by chance. The owners are very friendly & helpful and the rooms were very clean. Breakfast was excellent and well cooked. I would definately go back there again if ever I got to Penzance. Highly Recommended.
