We spent four comfortable nights at Sophia's after a very warm welcome by Lynn. The room and en suite was furnished and fitted in a modern, characterful style with a wonderful view over Mount's Bay. Breakfasts were superb and of high quality, the homemade granola was wonderful. Couldn't wish for anything better within a small and friendly run B +... More

Modern but with character, quiet and comfy. Nice location overlooking promenade. Very good breakfast. Overlooking sea front on road but very quiet. Parking in front on road but easy walk from train station. Lovely option for a mini break to deepest Cornwall. Penzance nicer and more interesting than expected as well!

Sophia's B&B (run by Lynn and not Sophia but there is a connection!) is lovely. We were met by friendly Lynn who instantly made us a cup of tea while chatting away to us. Our room on the ground floor was very compact, but we knew this when booking so it did not come as a surprise. It is ideal... More

We stayed at Sophia's for three nights in June and both loved it. Our room (Zelah) was relatively small but was comfortable and nicely furnished, it also had wonderful views of the sea - very picturesque. Great location as we were able to walk into the centre of town, as well as into neighbouring villages and a few miles down... More

We stayed at Sophia's for a long weekend in August for a wedding near Penzance. The owner, Lynn, was so friendly and accommodating. She made us feel very welcome and provided loads of local info and advice. The room was beautiful and immaculately clean and breakfasts were delicious. It's also a great location with sea views!

We arrived at about 3pm and found parking space close to the B&B which is on the front. Located near an Amusement arcade and chippy but we didn't suffer from any noise or smells. We were welcomed in and shown to a nice room, clean room with clean bathroom and the owner offered us a tray of tea which was... More

The property is right on the sea front, so very central for that side of town. The host was friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean and simply furnished. We found the bed small and a little uncomfortable. Really liked the modern bathroom with rain shower. The breakfast area was very small, so you can't have a private conversation. We... More

Stayed here for one night while walking the South West Coast Path. Compact room without much room to put our stuff without it being in the way. Good bathroom and big shower. Good breakfast, fruit and cooked full English. Very friendly hostess who doesn't live on the premises but made sure we felt at home. We'd be happy to stay... More

Early September we stayed for a few nights at Sophia's House B & B. It turned out to be a wonderful surprise, on account of its location (on the quiet side of the Penzance promenade close to the Queen's Hotel & unimpeded sea view), its interior decoration (modern design, including shower, and colourful contrasts & textures), comfort (comfortable beds, top...
