The rouble with booking on the internet is will you get what you saw in the images, it comes with a great deal of satisfaction when you get so much more than you ordered. A recent few days break in Cornwall meant booking a B&B, and I like my comfort, food and good service and with much of Cornwall shut... More

A brilliant weekend at Penrose B&B. Chris and Heidi were fantastic hosts and very welcoming of our pet labrador, Chief. Room clean, spacious and exactly what was needed. Breakfast brilliant. Lostwithiel a lovely place. All pubs allow dogs, and food at the Globe and Royal Oak particularly good. We would have no hesitation booking with Chris and Heidi again...

We had the king size en- suite. Breakfast was something to die for cereals, toast, scrambled eggs& salmon or fish , or full english, tea coffee or... More

Fabulous place. Owners Chris and Heidi are charming and most welcoming. We had a fantastic self catering room for 3 nights, that was extremely comfortable and spacious. Very well equipped. Delicious cooked breakfast. Lovely location a good base for Bodmin, Fowey, Liskeard, Looe and surrounding areas and not far from the North coast as well. Only criticism would be poor... More

A three nights stay before Christmas at the Penrose proved to be very comfortable, with a breakfast menu that set my husband and I up in good form to go off and explore Cornwall. Chris and Heidi were very welcoming and helpful. Our king sized bedroom and ensuite more than catered for our needs with easy chairs to relax in... More

Chris and Heidi were outstanding hosts that provided excellent hospitality. We spent 7 days at Penrose and thoroughly enjoyed our time. They provided excellent value for money and gave a lot of relevant advice on places to visit. Accommodation was warm and cosy and of a high standard. We would thoroughly recommend this venue.

I spent 2 nights at the Penrose B&B not expecting much as it was rather cheap for the stay. However when I arrived I was greeted in the car park by Chris and Heidi and helped in with my bags. This was the first surprise. From there it only got better. My room was huge with more than enough room... More

Although I only stayed one night, I felt completely at home as I was welcomed first by Chris to make sure I was happy where I parked and carried in my bag. Then by Heidi who offered to carry my bag up to the room. The house had a lovely feel, the room was very spacious, the bed comfortable and... More

I had an excellent stay here. From the warm welcome in the rain with a helping hand in from the car with a kind umbrella. To the great recommendation of local restaurants and pubs, that we're all within walking distance. To a lovely breakfast to set you up for the day. The room with a view was very clean and... More

An excellent place to stop over while travelling through Cornwall. I had a country-style, well decorated, spacious room. Unforgettable breakfast. Lovely ancient town within easy reach of Fowey and Eden project at more affordable prices.
