Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review. Following your concerns our plumber has serviced all the radiators and they are now top notch. We are one of the only B&B's in the area with stunning sea views and our customers tend to spend their time outside in the garden over looking the sea. So glad... More

My Wife and I have recently returned from a wonderful stay at the Penellen. The hotel was beautifully clean, modern and has the most fantastic views across St Ives Bay. Really relaxing with a very hearty full English breakfast which sets you up for the day. We will definitely return. Thank you.

We chose the Penellen as it is right on the beach at Hayle with stunning views. On arrival quite early in the morning we were warmly welcomed and sat down to a lovely breakfast. Our room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and again, had an amazing view. A nice touch is the fridge on the landing for guests use. Barbara is... More
