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

Regrettably, I was disappointed by Penrose. One of the reasons why I booked the hotel was because it had been given good reviews by people online and I was looking forward to meeting Heidi and Chris. I arrived late and was greeted by Chris who seemed very friendly and I felt like I was going to have a good stay.... More

Dear Alex, Just had a big shock reading your review. Booking so late you obviously didn.t have the time to read our breakfast arrangements which are on the website and the confirmation email sent to you. Just to confirm we serve a cooked breakfast from 8.15 to 9 am each morning. For those guests who need to leave before 8.15am... 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

We were very lucky to come across this gem of a b&b... decided to travel down to Cornwall Thursday evening without anywhere to stay, found this b&b on late rooms and even though it was 930 in the evening when we called to book they were very accommodating. We were in room 6 on the ground floor, the bed was... More

Just got back from a lovely short stay at the Penrose. Stayed with my husband and 5 month old baby in one of the family rooms. I must say that what makes this place so special is Chris and Heidi. They are a lovely couple who make you feel at home as soon as you walk in the door and... More
