I cannot fault my 5 day stay at Glencree House. Excellent breakfast and a good choice too. The owners were very friendly and helpful to point out things to do in the area. Whilst my single room in the loft was not large it had everything I required and I am 6' 3".

We spent three nights at Glencree House and would have stayed much longer! Andrew and Lyndsey were the perfect hosts, offering excellent suggestions for places to visit, eat, and wander. Our room was spotless, bright, and airy with high ceilings, an amazingly comfy bed, tea and coffee-making facilities, complimentary cookies and chocolate mints each night. The shower was awesome and... More

I stayed here with my partner in May of this year; we were heading over to the Isles of Scilly for our main holiday. The room was lovely - extremely comfortable bed, decent sized TV, bright and simple decor, very clean. There was an excellent selection of teas/coffees/hot chocolates. Most of the natural, locally-made toiletries were great but I would... More

Quiet residential location, pub around the corner and beach a stone's throw. Ten minutes walk from town centre. Our room was clean, spacious and had lots of character, I don't think I have ever felt so at home in hotel accommodation. The bed was very comfortable and the window opened all the way allowing lots of fresh air in. This... More

My family and I stayed in room 8 for 1 night at the end of August 2016. The establishment had a very welcoming feel to it from the start and was nicely decorated. Our room was spacious and the owners allowed us the use of their travel cot. We had our own private shower/toilet/sink facilities in the room. The breakfast... More

Our hosts were brilliant, nothing too much trouble. The room was great, a very comfortable bed and everything one could want, lovely biscuits, special coffee and fresh milk. The breakfasts were the very best I have ever had, either in a hotel or a B and B all over the World. We will certainly return. It is central for travelling... More

With its wealth of character and many original features, Glencree House echoes the romance of yesteryear, combined with the comfort and style of today.

Your guest lounge area is situated in the streaming sunshine of the bay window at the front of the house and is complete with a library of local information including pamphlets, books, maps and timetables. We are more than happy to sit with you for a few minutes to help plan your visit to West Cornwall. Glencree House is a short stroll to the main shopping & dining streets of Penzance, Penlee House with its gardens and cafe, the 1930's art deco open air lido, cinemas, museums and art galleries to mention a few.
