100 % satisfied customers, with the location, cleanliness, hosts, room with the sea view...Every little detail was thought about, we could only enjoy, travel and relax. Delicious home cooked breakfast with local produce... I only wish it had lasted longer! :) We have stayed 2 nights at Glencree House and it was amazing.

The owners advised us by email that they might be out at the time we said we would arrive, but gave us instructions where to find the key etc.and that our room was on the top floor. 38 steps, but manageable! Comfortable room with beams and with tiny shower/wc, but everything you need for a good night's sleep. Friendly service... More

A great little B&B right next to the sea with wonderful sea views, a short walk into the centre of Penzance this was ideally located for a weekend exploring the south coast. A very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Great quality breakfast with a good selection of choice.

We had a wonderful stay at Glencree House. The hosts were super kind and did all they could to make us comfortable. Our room was lovely and bright! The breakfast was exceptional and we loved the fact that they used local produce.

Warm and welcoming B&B run by the very accommodating Lynsey and Andrew. The rooms are lovely, breakfasts varied and abundant, great location. I would highly recommend Glencree House to anyone wanting a reasonably priced place to stay offering great value for money.

I can't add anything more to the positive reviews of Glencree House. Upon arrival, I was greeted by Andrew and given the full, $1 tour (ok, full £1 if you like) where I was shown all the books, maps, brochures, magazines, bus scheduIes for the area. I was allowed (and took advantage) to take materials with me for the day... More

We were only there 1 night prior to catching a flight to the Scillies the next morning. Location was good a short (5min) walk to the centre of Penzance there is an excellent pub (The Navy) only...

With its wealth of character and many original features, Glencree House echoes the romance of yesteryear, combined with the comfort and style of today. We have 7 bright, spacious, recently refurbished guest rooms configured as a mixture of single, twin, family and double rooms - one with a four-poster bed and some with sea views. All rooms are en-suite or have a private bathroom and are equipped with free wi-fi, TV and DVD player, DAB clock radio with iPod docking station, hairdryer, tea and coffee making facilities. 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.
