“Wonderful holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

I stayed a week at Harbour View Guest House from 17th August and had the most wonderful holiday. I had a very comfortable room, with the most spectacular views, and was able to watch the sun rise and huge changing skys across the bay to St Michael's Mount, from my bed!
As a solo traveller, I thoroughly enjoyed the communial breakfast tables, meeting new people and sharing tales of daily adventures! Joy was warm and welcoming, and made me feel very at home, supplying plenty of helpful information and local knowledge, as well as delicious breakfasts, and plenty of varieties of tea and coffee and biscuits. I really enjoyed my stay, which was a very important part of a fantastic holiday!

Stayed at Harbour View 4 nights end of August. This is our third visit to this B&B and every time it does us proud.
It is without doubt "no frills" but exceptional value and in our opinion cannot be beaten if you want good honest value for money. The rooms we have had on our visits were comfortable with washbasin and shower built in to one corner but were never designed for full ensuite, (Victorian terrace) hence dedicated toilets across the corridor. The breakfast room/lounge is great with two tables for breakfast and lovely setees and armchairs to sink into and watch tv in the evenings if you want a change from tv in the bedroom.
Breakfast!!!!!! wow, you just couldn't beat it. Full range of buffet cereals, fruit, yoghurts etc to start then any sort of "full English" you like. Nothing is too much trouble for hosts Joy and Peter (chef). practically any combination of cook up you like, just ask and it appears like magic. Brown or white toast, truckloads of it!!
Joy and Peter have been there a while so are a mine of info when it comes to advice on where to visit, bus routes, opening times, you need to know?? they have the answer.
"Their luck to live there and ours to visit them"
What more can we say!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Only used the "family room" (three singles and full ensuite) and room 1 at the front. Room...

A very good, comfortable, well priced B&B situated right on the harbour-side road (not much traffic, no disturbance).
Very good full english breakfast, plus cold selection.
Most rooms have an excellent view over Newlyn harbour.(now most significant fishimg port in England*), Mount's Bay, Penzance seafront and St.Michael's Mount.
Owner Joy is very friendlly and helpful regarding local places to visit and eat.

[* Since decline of fishing ports such as Grimsby and Fleetwood - pleasure boats mostly use nearby Penzance harbour].

Room Tip: Top (2nd) floor suite or 1st floor suite 3 for families (half rooms in each have harbour view). Roo...

My partner and I stayed there for a week with our 3 dogs.
Joy and Peter were lovely hosts and were very welcoming of our dogs.
They were very helpful with places for us to visit and eat.
The view of the harbour from our room was stunning. The room was very nice and there was a good choice of breakfast - toast, cereal and cooked breakfast to order.
We would recommended.

Superb location with stunning views of Newlyn Harbour and the Bay. Joy was very helpful and made sure we knew where the good eateries were. The pub next door has wonderful food with a very friendly cook! We managed to tour most of the surrounding area despite lousy weather and would certainly use Harbour View Guest House again when in the area. Extremely good value for money and the breakfasts are large and filling.

We had a lovely long weekend at the end of May 2013. The guest house is situated right on the harbour and the view was fantastic from our room. The room was comfortable and the facilities were good. The breakfast was excellent with a good range of choices.

Joy and Peter were perfect hosts and made us feel at home. They were very welcoming of our dog and provided information as required regarding parking, eating out and sightseeing etc.

We really enjoyed our stray and will hopefully be able to stay again.

My daughter and I wanted a quick few days away, we Had a wonderful 2 night stay while exploring the area, we had an Excellent view over the harbour as you would expect. Joy was a very helpful and welcoming host as well as being knowledgeable. Great value for money the room was a good size with a large shower and sink in the room and the toilets (private) were in a separate area. Will defiantly be re-booking in the near future!
many thanks
