Well.....What can I say......I would advise not to visit here ! It is anything but relaxing and comfortable! This hotel is very dated and felt like I had stepped back in time by a century or two!! Also, there is one shower between all the guests which delayed me in getting out to explore sunny Cornwall !! TAKE MY ADVICE...DONT... More

I just do not understand this. Four of the rooms are en-suite and for the others there are two bathrooms (-the pink bathroom has a w.c, washbasin, bidet, big bath and a shower over the bath--the blue bathroom has a bath, washbasin and w.c ), there is a separate wc not in a bathroom and there is a big shower...

We booked for 3 days to see this part of Cornwall and visit family. Very disappointed, left after 2nd night, room was not en-suite, you had to cross a sort of kitchen!! Loo cistern was coming adrift off the wall, the whole place smelled musty. The window wouldn't shut properly, appeared to be broken and there were a lot of... More

Tastes do differ! Guests say to me - "How much extra do you charge for the room with a little kitchen" and yet other people say " I am on holiday and I do NOT want to see a kitchenette". I am so sorry these people didn't like the room and I do so wish they had mentioned any problems.... More

We booked in to the Penkerris as we started out our married lives in St. Agnes in 1980 and wanted to meet up with friends and reminisce. Because we were taking the dog, Dorothy put us in a little flat type section around the back of the hotel which would have been great had we taken the dog but it... More

I had spent a couple of nights in St Agnes in a hotel in the centre of the village which, don't get me wrong, was lovely. For my last night I found Penkerris. Dorothy showed me to a delightful room complete with a small kitchenette and a lovely view of St Agnes. The bed was very comfy and the sink... More

Located just a 10 minute walk from the town center, which is dotted with cute shops and a few restaurants and a 20 minute walk from the gorgeous beach this quaint B&B has a great location. The building itself has got lots of character, almost as much as the owner herself! Very helpful and always on the go Dorothy made... More

Penkerris Hotel is a old fashioned hotel , on first impressions you wonder what your stay is going to be like as it is very tired. The room we stayed in was comfortable and had all that we needed. The decor is in keeping with the age of the property . If your looking for a quirky hotel this is... More

I have stayed at Penkerris several times now, it is a traditional house with a lot of character and in a great location. The nearest beach is only a short walk away and the village is very pleasant. I have always felt very welcome and the cooked breakfast is by far the best I've had! The prices are more than... More

My partner booked us a short break In Penkerris for my birthday and we loved every second. We were greeted by the owner who is a lovely older lady with a great personality and sense of humour. The rooms are decorated in a quite old fashioned way but this adds to the unique charm and laid back feel. The rooms... More

We have stayed at Penkerris a few times now and it feels like staying in someones home. If you are looking for a boutique hotel this is definitely not the place for you, but if you are happy with an old fashioned, comfortable B&B with the personal touch then I would recommend this place highly.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Penkerris is an enchanting creeper clad Edwardian residence with a lawned garden and ample parking situated right on the edge of this unspoiled Cornish village. There are shops, delightful old pubs and several restaurants just around the corner. There are three lovely beaches, excellent for surfing, one with our beach hut, within walking distance. It is a "Home from Home" offering real food. Meals are served in the beautiful dining room. The lounge is bright and cosy with a log fire in winter. The lawn is fine for badminton; there are swings for the children, picnic tables and a barbecue. St Agnes is central for touring and is only 8 miles from Truro. There are frequent buses between St Agnes, Truro and Newquay. Penkerris is very easy to find. From the big roundabout on the A30 at Chiverton, take the B3277 to St Agnes (3m). Penkerris is just inside the village sign. We are pet and dog friendly. Prices From £25.00 Per person including breakfast. ... more   less
