I've stayed at the Tremont for several years, having found it by accident when I couldn't book into another one. The green credentials were what made me choose it over other alternatives, and I've never regretted it. Chris is welcoming and attentive, giving me a pot of tea and biscuits in the lounge when I arrived for my first visit,... More

Two years since my last stay and nothing has changed here! Why fix what isn't broken? Chris runs a superb business competing with most of the other B&B's in town along the same street. She greets you by name where possible and her team will offer you every assistance during your stay. The Breakfast Award is proudly displayed in the... More

There are lots of positives here: Chris, the owner, is friendly and helpful; the location is fine (on a road with a dozen or so other B&Bs); everything is clean. But the single room I had was tiny - barely enough space for the bed - and the water pressure in the shower was disappointing. Overall, then, not quite excellent,... More

After staying in Falmouth for one night we moved onto Penzance and looked for somewhere to stay. Driving along the streets we found lots of B&B's with no vacancies until we got onto Morrab Rd just off the Promenade. We pulled up outside two with vacancies and I Googled the one that looked the most impressive hmmm, ok let's just... More

I stayed for a couple nights during the first week of October. My expectations were minimal - I was looking for a clean room and not a whole lot but Chris was the perfect hostess. Friendly, accomodating and caring, plying me with vegetarian options when I told her that I was a vegetarian, providing me with maps and information, letting... More

The Tremont is the best B&B we have ever stayed at. Room was great!! Clean and spacious. Excellent breakfast. We hired a bike and off to Trengwainton Garden and St. Michael's Mount. Explored the wonderful South West Coast Path from St. Ives. The food at Admiral Benbow is great. We even preferred Penzance above St. Ives. More relaxed and not... More

We stayed at Tremont in June 2013 and had a great time. Chris was very friendly and we were only about five minutes' walk from the prom. I had a great breakfast in the morning and our room was very clean and spacious. The best part though was the lounge which was very light and airy and full of lots... More

The Tremont is very handily placed in Penzance...less than 5 minutes stroll from the Promenade, and 10 minutes walk to the town. Just returned from an over-night stay at the Tremont, and I can't fault it. I arrived early in the morning and whilst (understandably) the room was not yet ready I was offered a coffee and a shower if... More

Chris is the host, and she deserves the five stars alone! She's friendly and welcoming, and takes care of you during your stay in her superb guesthouse. The rooms are lovely, the wallhangings beautiful, and the breakfast amazing. Add to this locally sourced food, a genuine concern for green tourism and a great location just off the prom, and you...

Chris is your host and she's exactly the type of person who should be running a busy, centrally located B & B. Chris is charming, witty and nothing is a problem. The guests rooms, although typically smaller for this type of establishment, are clean and very comforatble with their own onsuites. They offer towel changes every day if you wish.... More
