Run by Anne and Marc, a very kind and conscientious couple, this guest house, centrally located, provided myself, wife and brother-in-law with two very comfortable nights and three first class breakfasts. We loved our well appointed rooms and appreciated the early breakfast to enable us to get our car to a long stay car park prior to boarding the Scillonian... More

We arrived at Penzance late in the afternoon. The tourist office had already closed for the day, so I looked up Tripadvisor and found Penrose Guest House. A phone cal to the owner found us a room and we were on our way. We really liked the look of Penrose...in a quiet residential street and beautifully presented. It turned out... More

We stayed there two weeks ago for six nights. It is very clean and comfortable with excellent cooked breakfast. It is very close to the railway station and for people like me who pack lightly, there is a laundry close by. There are only two or three rooms available, so book ahead!

The Penrose Guest House is perfectly located if you want to explore Cornwall by bus. On average it takes about an hour to get anywhere, but the links are there to visit Lands End, St Ives, the Minack, St Michaels Mount, Geevor Tin Mine; plus Eden is only an hour away on the train. We visited them all. The guest... More

The en-suite room was large, very clean with a powerful shower and a very comfortable bed. Free WiFi, a free information pack on Cornwall, and a selection of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits plus a jug... More

We needed to stay where we could walk to the Train & bus station. These are under a five minutes level walk. plus just as handy, the laundertte and the Longboat pub for reasonably priced dinners. We did enjoy staying thirteen nights and would set off in the bus or train most days. Trips extended to Lands End and up... More

Arriving on the sleeper from Paddington, being able to leave our luggage and set off walking, the bus station being very close, made it possible to do this walk in 3 days without having to worry about moving on. We highly recommend the experience.
