We spent a wonderful week in Penarth Guest House in august. The location was excellent and allowed us to visit all corners of Cornwall. The room was comfy, plenty of light, nice en suite bathroom. Mike and his friend Sue were very welcoming. Their fantastic breakfasts, with lots of choice, all freshly cooked (you must try the hogs pudding !),... More

I can’t recommend a stay at Penarth Guest House enough. Everything about our stay there (six days) was pure pleasure. Our room upstairs was clean, comfortable, nicely furnished, and with lots of light. The modern ensuite bathroom was roomy and well fitted out. Both rooms demonstrate that Mike, the proprietor – as well as being a builder – has an... More

Mike was an excellent host. We are both Vegetarian and the breakfast was a full veggie cooked along with fruit, yoghurt and cereals not the normal reduced menu. Didn't need to eat lunch afterwards. Great location for the Eden project and the wider area. Rooms are a high standard and clean with a couple of nice touches. The Britannia Inn... More

The Penarth guest house is clean and the rooms well furnished. But it is the welcoming hosts and the wonderful breakfast which make it such a special place to stay. Nothing is too much trouble for Mike, and you really feel as though you are staying with friends. There is a breath-taking amount of choice for breakfast and everything is... More

You get an excellent greeting and "Cornish Welcome" from Mike who makes you feel instantly at home. For eating out there is a pub just up the road, and down the bottom of the hill is the Britannia Inn, easily walk-able provided you are capable once you leave the pub. The 10% discount (where Mike gives you a signed card)... More

After deciding to visit the Eden project last minute we looked for accommodation that was close by,we booked the Penarth for its close proximity. We did not look at any of the reviews and arrived with no expectations so we were hugely surprised by the warm welcome from Mike despite our late arrival. We were shown to a beautiful room... More
