We had a lovely stay here. The location is excellent. A couple of minutes walk from Penzance town centre and also from the train and bus station. On a nice quiet street. Easy to get to Land's end on the bus and a 15 min drive from the lovely St. Ives. The room was comfortable, clean, with good wardrobe space... More

I stayed here with my son and his partner for two nights in July. The other reviews say it all. The rooms were spotless, the breakfasts were excellent and Anne was very attentive and provided us with plenty of useful information about the area and suggested places to visit. Many thanks for making our stay so enjoyable.

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
