Pat and Bob, thank you for such a wonderful 3 days. This was home from home to us, with being Australian we were at a loss, how to get to places. Everywhere and everything about the area was at the tip of your fingers. The bedroom was large with the view of St Michaels Mount, lie in bed and look... More

I have to say that our stay at the Halcyon was one of the highlights of our trip to Cornwall. The Halcyon is ideally located -- less than a 10-minute walk from the coach/train station, but slightly away from the bustle of the town centre, which is a few minutes on foot. We had booked two rooms, one with kids.... More

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.

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...
