My girlfriend and me have been guests at the Penellen recently on our short trip through Cornwall. We loved the familiar atmosphere and the great service offered, ranging from pre-departure information to the lovely English breakfast. The rooms are modernly equipped with an eye for the maritime detail. Moreover, we were stunned by the fantastic sea-view offered from our balcony... More

The hosts were very friendly with plenty of information about the local area. The room was clean, bright and comfortable and everything was of a high quality. All the B&B rooms have a sea view which was absolutely stunning, we didn't want to leave and will certainly be back.

We spent 2 nights in this lovely hotel in our favourite place in the UK. Barbara was lovely, our room was clean, bright and had a balcony overlooking the sea and we had a great time. Her recommendation for dinner the first night was just brilliant and our breakfast both days were great. Thank you for a lovely time, Jan... More

The Penellen is probably the best B & B in Cornwall we have stayed in. Just a few steps away from the beach, so we were in our element. Our room was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. Barbara was very helpful and her local knowledge of things to do was very helpful. Definitely worth checking out Country Skittles... More

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.
