We stayed at Chiverton for 4 nights at Easter and couldn't be any happier with our choice. Alan welcomed us upon arrival and brought us to our room (number 6), he then very efficiently showed us around and explained how everything works and also gave us a map of Penzance with good places to eat marked on it! Very helpful... More

This is a fantastic B&B in a great location. Close enough to the town to walk in but very quiet on an evening. Extremely clean and welcoming and the beds are very comfortable. Breakfast is brilliant too. But most importantly the owners are very friendly indeed, they will make you feel so welcome.

Found this a very clean bed and breakfast in good, quiet spot. A pleasant, level walk from the railway station along the sea front or a shorter, hillier walk through the town and along a path and through a park. Alan was very friendly and helpful with suggestions. The breakfast was good, especially liked having fresh fruit. The room we... More

The bed was very comfortable (good nights sleep) refreshing powerful shower and plenty of soft towels. Breakfast provided a good choice of options, we had orange juice and fresh fruit followed by a... More

This place was beautiful, has lovely bathrooms. Everything is super clean and well cared for and it really feels more like a home. The staff were polite and very helpful. We had a lovely time, and we would definitely go back next time we’re in Penzance! :)

After some disappointing accommodation during our trip around Europe what a breath of fresh air Chiverton House was.We were warmly welcomed by our hosts Sally & Alan and it felt very warming to be welcomed into their home.This Olde Worlde home had all the character you would expect of a Victorian home,and while we found it very romantic to be...

Just came back from the Chiverton Hotel Penzance. It was a very nice stay and will go back again.Clean rooms,good breakfast and nice owners.Also Penzance is a base to explore Cornwall Alan an his wife made us welcome. We had a car found parking space no trouble but it is a residential area. janet Exeter
