It was half term week and everywhere busy but this Hotel/B&B is tucked away and only 5 minutes easy walk to the huge sandy beach. The October weather was awful and so it was wonderful to enjoy the sea, sand and grey sky view from our room! We were on our own but thought this a perfect place for families... More

I had a lovely stay here in a family room, the view really was beautiful. The owners were incredibly welcoming and very friendly. The breakfast each morning was freshly cooked and yummy. The room was very nice and spacious, the only negative I can say is that the bathroom was a little bit dated, apart from that I really can't... More

Brilliant hotel. Really really friendly. Rooms are very comfortable. Breakfast is wonderful with plenty of choice. Views from the rooms are fantastic. Plenty of parking both for the hotel and self catering units. Added bonus of free Wifi. Would really recommend for anybody. We will definitely be back. Barbara is a brilliant host.

A lovely place to relax looking out towards St Ives Bay. Uninterrupted views across the bay and headlands. All rooms have a sea view although ours was a side view but pleasant all the same. Our room was basic but sufficient for our two day stay. The stairs were a bit steep. Parking was well set up for both the... More

In a last minute decision, last weekend, my wife and I along with her brother booked 2 nights at The Penellen Hotel having found it on the internet. We were not disappointed with anything! The location was quiet and a stone's throw from the beach but just a short distance from Redruth, Carbis Bay & St Ives. The accommodation was... More

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

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
