As part of a week or so trip to Cornwall we stayed at the Chiverton for a couple of days and wouldn't hesitate to go back. The owner (whose name embarrassingly escapes me) welcomed us with open arms. The rooms and bathroom were beautifully kept, the breakfast was amazing. One tip, get there early parking could be tight, but we... More

We liked this guest house. It is a practical walking distance from the town centre and near some decent restaurants, including a nearby pub that does sausages in the best English pub-food tradition. It is a longer walk to St Michael's Mount, however: that took us over an hour. The B&B itself is very good. Our host, Allan, was friendly,... More

In a great central location for food and seeing Penzance, this little B&B is in a quiet location. There is on street parking, which has no restrictions. Our room was upstairs, but our host, Allan, was very helpful with bags. The room had no fans or air conditioning, our hosts, Sally and Allan, made amazing breakfasts to order. We loved... More

The host was very accommodating and service always came with a smile. We found the bed comfortable and the bathroom clean, though the shower cubicle was very small. For breakfast, juice, yoghurt, fruit and cereal is self service, where as the English breakfast is cooked fresh to order (eggs any style, add/remove other items) when you're ready for it. The...

Chiverton is in a small street close to the waterfront. You can walk easily into the centre and train station, and there are heaps of restaurants nearby. Alan is a very genial host, making it a pleasant stay. Breakfasts are excellent thanks to Sally who stays behind the scenes.

Even though we arrived at the B&B earlier than the 12pm check in time, our room was ready. Alan is a very helpful host, always chats to guests after their breakfast and gives them tips on where to go and what to see. He was very accommodating to my dietary requirements (decaf coffee, veg sausages, wholewheat toast, etc). The beds... More

Super little B&B. Alan, the owner, really welcoming and helpful, full of useful tips on what to check out in the area and where to eat. My room was really cute, very clean and comfortable. Free Wifi too which was excellent. Real friendly feel to the place. I missed breakfast on my last day due to a super early train,... More

This review is to correct the previous review by my wife. We misunderstood about leaving the room at 10.00 for cleaning, we have since been told by Allen this not the case. Because of the friendly way we were welcomed and throughout our stay, spotless room and the top quality breakfast there is no way we could give less than... More

Although our room didn't have any view it was spotless, the toilet and shower facilities was spot on. Breakfast was top quality and Alan was extremely friendly and helpful, only reason not 5 stars having to be out of the room by 10:00 for cleaning. Eating places in Penzance very friendly and welcoming, the food was brilliant. Recommend Admiral Benbow... More
