Exactly what I was expecting: a warm welcome, courtesy, old England atmosphere. My room had one of the most comfortable bed and pillows I have ever slept in. I also loved the fact that you could have a cup of tea/coffee anytime, since there is a cattle in the room and the teabags are replenished every day. There is also... More

It was my 2nd visit to Penzance and 2nd visit to The Pendennis. Firstly like to thank Russell and Hazel for being some great hosts, as a guest it is nice to feel at ease and they have a natural knack at ensuring that is the case. After a great first stay in Penzance in May 2013, we decided to... More

We stayed with Russell and Hazel for 6 nights. They were very gracious and friendly from the time we arrived until we left. They made us feel like friends rather than guests. We had a twin room overlooking the garden; it was a good size and very well maintained. There is a mini-fridge on the landing to store food and... More

This is our third stay with Hazel and Russell and all I can say is its fabulous, great accommodation, a hearty and enjoyable breakfast , but most of all great hosts, in fact I would go as far to say they are now friends, I would recommend the Pendennis to anyone wanting to stay in Penzance.
