My first time back to Penzance after an absence of 5 years. I needed somewhere super convenient for both the station and the harbour and Cornerways more than fit the bill. Speaking to Matt at the time of making the reservation, I got the sense that this was going to be a great place to stay, and so it proved.... More

Back after three years, it was every bit as good as I remembered it. Staying in the same room as three years ago - and it speaks volumes about Matt's attention to detail that he remembered that! - was a bit like coming home. The hospitality at Cornerways is truly in a class of its own, with all the little... More

This is a small but perfect corner of Penzance. The front garden is tiny but charming. Sit and enjoy it. It sets the tone for the house. The house is old and quirky. I love it. There are only 4 bedrooms but they are beautifully thought out. Books are in each room or at least in the 2 rooms I... More

This year, instead of booking self catering, we booked into Cornerways. We have visited Matt and his wonderful establishment several times this year. Matt's attention to detail, and personal touch is second to none. Breakfasts are cooked just how you like them, and Matt is very attentive with coffee and making sure you have all that you need. The rooms... More

I'm a regular visitor to this superb guest house in Penzance and every time I find that the owner, Matt Martens, has found a way to make my stay even more enjoyable. Whether it is a redesign of the garden area or a new item on the breakfast menu, Matt's attention to detail is second to none. Every aspect is... More

This remains one of the very best guest houses that I have stayed in. This time I booked early so had a whole week in comfort. I was warmly welcomed and looked after very well during my stay. Breakfast still very delicious with specials most days. All the bits and pieces still on offer and I made good use of... More

Cornerways is small (4 bedrooms) but very comfortable and friendly. I always get a very warm welcome from the owner, Matt, who maintains a very high standard of comfort and service. He has found the knack of making the very best use of every square centimetre of space in this small property. The standard of house keeping is very high... More

After reading positive online reviews for Cornerways Guesthouse I decided to book a room for my solo travels to the southwest coast. Prior to my visit I received an email from Matt outlining key information such as directions whether travelling by car or public transport. As it happens, I was traveling by train and the station is less than 5... More
