From the central location and tasty breakfast to the cozy room and warm hospitality, It was a great stay. Will definitely consider again. The view is very relaxing and calming. The host is very charming and extremely helpful.

My wife and I and my 89 year old Mother stopped at Sophie's for 5 nights. Excellent location on the promenade. We had a room (Mylor) on the first floor with great views of the sea. Excellent size room, very comfortable beds, lovely linen and duvet, nice bathroom with a very modern walk in shower. My mother had a downstairs... More

The rooms are well appointed with quality linen and fluffy toweling. Although we had the downstairs smaller room, it was still a very comfortable stay with a really comfy bed. The highlight is breakfast and Lynn's friendly hospitality. The local produce, especially the bacon, is fantastic. We'll definitely be back when next in Penzance.

I stayed two nights with my boyfriend in this B&B and we just loved it. It is about 10-15 minutes walk from the rail and bus stations but it is in front of the sea and it's on the promenade so it's a pleasant walk. This B&B is very close to the city centre and to Newlyn as well, so... More

The B&B is located right near the water, all you need to do is step outside and see a beautiful view. It was easy to find and free parking was available right in front of hotel until 9am. We've arrived around 9.30pm on a Sunday and the nice lady who runs this B&B explained where she left a key for... More

Stayed at Sophia's bed and breakfast in Penzance for three nights in July. The b&b was tastefully decorated with an amazing view of the sea. Our room on the first floor was spotlessly clean and the bed was super comfy. Lynne the host couldn't do enough to help and her local knowledge helped us make the most out of our... More

We stopped at Sophia's before travelling across to the Scillies. The room was lovely, clean, well appointed and beautifully designed. While Lynn doesn't live there, she was very accommodating to help us get to the harbour in time in the morning. The lovely food for breakfast was one of the best I have ever had, well cooked, high quality, local... More

Everything was sparkling white, clean & well designed. Great shower & wonderfully fragrant products. Lynn, the owner, gives sound advice & top recommendations for days out & local restaurants; she also cooks a fabulous breakfast! A great B&B, highly recommended.
