We always try and stay at Keigwin House on our way to and from the Isles of Scilly, whether it's as a couple, with our kids, or with friends. Fran and Stuart are very welcoming and have great advice regarding the best places to eat in Penzance, and offer us a full breakfast (earlier than usual service) when we are travelling to Scilly on the Scillonian. We have stayed in several of their rooms, all of which are very comfortable and well equipped with great showers! There are generally always parking spaces in the side road just behind Keigwin House if you have difficulty finding a space on Alexandra Road. A great value, friendly B&B which we highly recommend.

we arrived here about 4 in the afternoon to be met with a locked door!! after a few rings of the bell, we were met by a harrassed looking Fran (well we're guessing it was her, she NEVER introduced herself?!!) she continued to moan about trying to put her shopping away and thet she was tired as she had been late to bed etc, we were not offered any tea or coffee, she never asked how our journey was, we were promptly shown to our very dated and gory room (room 4). think eighties furnishings and you have it. the quilt cover was creased and had never seen an iron! the sliding door to the bathroom kept getting stuck as it 'slid' against the carpet! the shower was tiny the big bottle of cheap shower gel was a no no.
we dutifully filled out our breakfast list the night before, and i was disappointed in my 1 sausage and 1 rasher of bacon!
the fruit juice was the tesco's own cheap brand, the whole experience left me hugelry disappointed, we felt really ignored, and the hosts were never around to ask anythjing. so much so we didnt even know that stu existed??
would not return. found the whole experience left me cold.

I have stayed here on many occasions, travelling to and from the Isles of Scilly and I have always found Keigwin House to be of a very high standard, while offering good value.
Fran and Stuart could not be more helpful, the rooms are great and the breakfast is delicious. Keigwin House good value and I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
It is also well-placed, about 5 mins walk from the centre of Penance, with a great Thai restaurant at the end of the road.

Had a wonderful short break at Keigwin House. Stuart and Fran were very welcoming which made our stay very enjoyable. Accommodation and food in particular were very good. It's in a lovely location with lots of places to visit.

Shame about the shaver socket! Overall a very enjoyable visit.

We will definitely be back!
