Excellent standard of hotel. Barbara and Paul were brilliant hosts - nothing was too much trouble for them. They provided a very good breakfast which set us up for the day. They were extremely knowledgeable regarding the area and gave us advice freely. The hotel is situated in a beautiful spot - overlooking the 3 miles of sand and sea.... More

This is the best B&B we stayed at ever. So friendly, clean and quiet that it's worth every penny. We did hiking an cycling and the location is perfect by the bay and the beach. Barbara took care of us and provided all information about the area, thanks Barbara (and to the 'toast assistance'). Walking distance to Bucket of Blood... More

This is one of the best places we stayed at during our 6 week trip to the Uk. The rooms are beautiful, the views are fantastic and the host Barbara is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and goes well beyond making you feel welcome. We are a couple with an 8yr old child. Would definitely recommend... More

My husband and I looked forward to exploring Cornwall using this lovely B & B as a base for 2 years. I found the Penellen while looking for lodgings that would guarantee a sea view. I was only expecting double doors opening out onto the gorgeous St. Ives Bay but when we arrived were surprised to find we had a... More

I recently spent a lovely week at The Penellen Hotel in Hayle, Cornwall. The hosts, Barbara and Paul, are wonderful. Accommodation is spotless and comfortable and, as many others have already mentioned, the sea views across St. Ives Bay are unbeatable. Breakfasts are plentiful, and so fantastic was the shower in my room, I had trouble leaving it! The Penellen... More

We have stayed on the Towans for many years and had relatives stay in the self-catering accommodation within the Penellen complex many years ago, so we were aware of its excellent location. However when we were shown to our room the view was more stunning... More

As a Cornishman in exile I return every few years and have now stayed twice at this hotel for a couple of weeks each time. I can't see me staying anywhere else in future. Wonderful sea views across St Ives Bay and you are lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves below the cliffs. The new balconies are... More
