My husband and I stayed here recently for 3 nights. What a fabulous position with great views of Hayle beach and St.Ives. Barbara the owner is a lovely lady, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. She works very hard. Our bedroom (room 3) and bathroom was spacious, clean and airy and the furnishings were befitting with the beach... More

Fantastic stay at the Penellen. Barbara and Paul are very friendly and take time to talk to everyone properly. Gorgeous views of the beach from room 5. Breakfast was lovely too. Rooms were lovely and bright.

We have been holidaying in this area for many years so were not expecting any surprises during this short stay. However, we were amazed that this gem of a B&B had escaped our attention before. The décor is in a holiday style, clean and relevant to the location with fluffy towels, toiletries, daily biscuits, tea, coffee and bottled water. The... More

The welcome, room and facilities were wonderful. Barbara and Paul are fabulous hosts. The rooms are really spacious - not just the bedrooms but the bathroom too. There is lots of room to sit outside on the patio or in the garden with a fantastic view of St Ives Bay. We will definitely be back for another visit and will... More

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.
