We've just returned from another stay in the Penellen Hotel in Hayle - and yet again - we were to enjoy a stay which was more like being looked after by family, as opposed to a hotel owner. Barbara runs this lovely hotel and her hospitality is the best we've ever encountered. That's no mean feat considering the standards we... More

Our first visit to The Penellen Hotel but will not be our last. The location is superb overlooking Carbiss Bay. Barbara, the owner, is so warm and friendly. The hotel is very clean and beautifully furnished and the breakfasts are excellent. Would strongly recommend. Pat & Chris Hailey, Chesham, Bucks.

Our first stay at Penellen but second dealing with Barbara as we stayed in one of the self-catering properties attached to Penellen 2 years ago. The Penellen is first rate. Our room was clean with excellent facilities and a Juliet balcony with a view you wouldn't better any where else in the world (in our opinion). Cannot understand how anyone... More

I don't know what marvilla93 is talking about, but we stayed in room 2 and it was the best room I've ever stayed in. There was loads of storage space, it was lovely and clean and they replenished tea, coffee, etc. every day. They even gave us a bottle of water every day, and not just any old biscuits -... More

Great welcome from Barbara & Paul who showed us our room and helped with the luggage! Very clean bedroom with super en suite and lovey views of St Ives Bay and surrounding area. Excellent breakfast with as much coffee, tea and juice as you would wish for. All in all 'Rest Assured' that you will have a great time.

It was my wife's birthday and we've never been to Cornwall, reviews seemed ok. I'll start with the pro's: Good parking, nice sea front views, away from town centre (if you don't like night life), nice people and speedy phone calls and emails response. Cons or dislikes: Room 4 bathroom's extractor fan very noisy!! especially at night (didn't sleep first... More

We are sorry that the extractor fan in the next room was loud, and that one of our guests had left in on by mistake. We have now installed a low noise one. As for the smell of tobacco, this is the first complaint we have ever had as all our bedrooms are non smoking. Breakfast is well above average... More

The Penellen is very welcoming with very friendly hosts. It's situated right on the coast line with fantastic views from all the bedrooms. The rooms are spotless, modern and comfortable. There is loads of choice at breakfast and the cooked breakfast is grilled and one of the best we have experienced. It is situated in an ideal place for viewing... More
