“Best B&B by far.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Simon and Karen are great hosts and make every guest feel welcome. The standard and choice of breakfast is excellent (Simon's scrambled eggs are to die for). The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The central location is ideal for walkers, cyclists and anyone wanting to visit Penzance. Overall a great experience and more importantly great value for money.

To put it short: great, cosy and very clean rooms, great and delicious food (best English breakfast ever) and most of all very very friendly host. From now on, this is our place to go when in Penzance.

Very last minute booking at the height of the season, and was not disappointed. I have stayed in many B& Bs/Hotels in Penzance (as I visit my parents who live in the town regularly) and this comes out on top. Simon, Karen & Patrick are the consumate hosts, attentive and friendly and providers of a stunning breakfast, The house is decorated beautifully, and the room was lovely - sparkly clean, comfy bed and a good shower. Would cetainly recommned this for a central located, value for moeny place to stay. Dan says Hallo to Patch :-) We'll be back.

A comfortable, clean and well located B&B within easy reach of Central Penzance. Karen & Simon were great hosts and very helpful when I hurt my hand after a fall (which had nothing to do with the Con Amore). The most important point for me was the fact that I got a good night's sleep from the very first night (I stayed for 3 nights). I normally have trouble sleeping in a different bed for a night or two, but the bed and bedding in my room was perfect for a good night's rest, and if I get that, all is right with the world. TIP - Keep the bedroom windows shut at might or the Seagulls might give you an early wake-up call.

Karen and Simon were the perfect hosts. Friendly and welcoming at all times.
The room was on the small side but was clean, pretty and had every amenity. We thought it was very good value for money considering our stay was in the height of the season.
The guest house itself is around 300 yards from the main promenade so location couldn't be better.
First class stay and I'd recommend this little gem to anyone looking for reasonably priced accommodation within spitting distance of the attractions in Penzance.

Good transport links and a central location means Penzance is a great base for walking the far west Cornwall coast path.
Rachel and Simon are perfect hosts and the buliding is beautiful. Single room 4 very clean and comfortable and had everything you would need, even a robe to get to the bathroom upstairs. Plenty of on road parking in the street and close to town though in a fairly quiet road.
Not much of a breakfaster eater so having fresh fruit on the side was wonderful. Their local knowledge of places to eat was great.
Fairly new to the business they deserve to do well.
Thank you.

The room was clean, well kept and pleasant to stay in. For breakfast, we had different cooked options as well as a good selection of cereals, yoghurt and fruit. The food was tasty and filling. The hosts were very friendly, accommodating and gave helpful advice on the area.

The two "very good" ratings are due to things out of their control. Firstly, the room was a little small, but they have used the space very well so it wasn't a real problem. Secondly, we weren't too keen on Penzance as a town. This B&B, however, is on one of the nicest streets we saw and it has lovely gardens just up the road.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it as an excellent place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1. I have no experience of the others.
