Booked last minute so had standard double room. However the room was lovely with ensuite facilities. Great range of tea and coffee available. The breakfast was fabulous. Can't think of one complaint. Chris and Heidi very welcoming hosts. We will definitely return!!!

I spent two nights here in an extremely comfortable and cosy 'flat'. I was collected from the train station by Chris and welcolmed at the door by Heidi. They are a very friendly couple and I felt very well looked after. The breakfast was cooked beautifully, the houskeeper was lovely and my rooms were spotless and there were lots of... More

We have just returned from a week's stay at this lovely B&B. Our welcome from Chris and Heidi could not have have been better! We were met as we parked the car and Chris took our heavy bags to our room on the top floor. The room and ensuite were perfect: warm and cosy with plenty of tea, coffee, milk,... More

Amazing experience at Penrose B&B with the beautiful and cosy room, the joyful hosts, the succulent breakfast and the amazing views. Would recommend anyone to stay with them just because of the amazing experience we had. Thank you again Heidi and Chris. You are most probably the most welcoming people I have come across in a very long time. :)... More

Heidi and Chris made our staying in their beautiful B&B just outstanding! Our room was spacious, decorated with very good taste, clean, warm, cosy and with an amazing view! The bathroom was big too and very very clean with all possible soaps you may need..just a small thing, I couldn't find the hairdryer and then I've forgotten to ask for,... More

We found the Penrose through Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed! We stayed for 5 nights while helping a relative move to Lostwithiel, which makes an excellent base for looking around Mid- Cornwall. Chris and Heidi have thought of everything for making everyone feel really welcome . The room was spotless and the facilities including parking, breakfast, information and... More

Chris and Heidi from the moment we arrived until the moment we left were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. We arrived after a very long drive, (7hrs), we were tired and hungry. They informed us that the local pubs would have stopped serving food, however they told us of a chinese take-away that would serve us. They... More

We were looking for somewhere special to stay for a few nights and found this fantastic guesthouse. The 'home' of Heidi and Chris was so spotless and the decor befitting this lovely Victorian terraced property was tastefully presented. The photos on booking.com were exact representations of the guesthouse which made us more likely to book. We could not have experienced... More

We stayed at the Penrose b&b early September and what a fantastic place. Chris and Heidi do everything to make a stay there fantastic. We stayed in the "granny flat" on the ground floor and could not fault it in any way. Breakfast was exceptional and we found that we did not want to eat anything more during the day.... More
