“An excellent guest house you would go back to.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

Enjoyed 4 nights here. The room was bright, comfortable and immaculately clean. We slept well in a comfy bed and enjoyed breakfast in friendly surroundings.
Due to stormy weather we were late in arriving but Hazel could not have been more accommodating; after a traumatic journey we were so glad to arrive in a lovely warm room with everything you could ask for.

We have just spent two nights at this excellent guest house. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast room was cheerful and the breakfast was well presented. We were really impressed with everything and will definitely be returning for another stay soon.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

I was on the first floor in a single room which was very clean, well furnished and comfortable. I was kindly provided with a bacon sandwich instead of the cooked breakfast so can not really comment on the breakfast.
I did find Alexandra road to be quite noisy from traffic especially if I wanted the window open, so did not sleep too well, hence my score below.
The single room was quite small, comfortable enough for me as I was out most of the time, but the provision of a guests lounge would have been nice.

John. Sorry you did not sleep well, it was a very busy weekend, but Alexandra Road is quiet from 7pm until the morning, no one has ever mentionned this as a problem, although you must have been warm and have the windows open, as you took the quilt off and used only a sheet.
If you had mentionned the issue to us we would have gladly moved you to another room, we did have another single free, it is too late to mention it when you have left, but glad that all else was in order, we are a bed and breakfast and it is important to us that you sleep well and enjoy breakfast, you did have cereals and toast then a takeaway sandwich, so you should have mentionned a problem to us when you were at breakfast we always ask.

We have just spent 5 nights at this excellent B & B and could not have found a better place to stay, particularly at that price. Hazel and Russell go out of their way to help in any way that they can. Spotlessly clean and warm room, well decorated, good quality furniture and bedding, and a wonderful breakfast. In our opinion, this is THE place to stay if you are in Penzance.

I've just spent two nights at the Pendennis in Penzance. From the cheery welcome at the front door to the rooms themselves, everything is just as you need it. You'll find the B&B absolutely spotless as if the decorators left 10 minutes before you went in.

As a pro-photographer, I tend to go out very early in the morning when most people are happily dreaming. Thankfully, they give you the ability to come and go as you please, which is perfect.

I didn't take breakfast there but if the rest of the facilities are anything to go by then I will assume that to be of exceptional standards too.

Thanks for running such a great B&B!

Delightful hosts...the rooms are beautifully decorated with lovely bedding, thoughtful touches like sewing kits ...and, a zippy breakfast when you need to get out early . This is a spotless B & B , one of the best that we've stayed in and we will return as quickly as we can !

Clean and comfortable room, great breakfast and friendly and hard-working owners. What more could you want from a B&B?
Good value too.
