This little B&B run by the lovely Lynn is an absolute gem if you are looking for a comfortable, spotlessly clean and elegant place to stay. Our room was gorgeous with views over the sea, a fabulous bathroom and the breakfast was cooked to order by Lynn with everything fresh and homemade. You would be daft not to book this... More

Sophia's B&B is an excellent choice when staying in Penzance. Lynn welcomed us with a big smile and a great cup of coffee. We had a lovely, cosy and beautifully decorated double room at the ground floor facing the promenade. The smell of freshness of the room, the lovely big comfy double bed and the modern and spacious bathroom made... More

Having come across Sophia's when visiting Penzance five years ago we were so pleased to re-visit. The food is still excellent as is the service. Our meals were freshly cooked to order, well presented, tasty and hot. We hope it will not be another 5 years before we return.

I have dned at Sophia's several times now and it has never failed to please with the quality of food and friendly service. The restaurant is small, 5 tables only, so important to book first. Couldn't fault any of the dishes, a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience and worth every penny.

Staying at the CHy An Mor, we were a short walk away from Sophia's. It would have been a lovely walk along the promenade to get to Sophia's, if not for the stormy weather that day. We were fortunate to get a table as the restaurant was fully booked. There are only 4 tables in total, so you really should... More

While staying at Sophia's, we took advantage of the great two course deal (£18) and had a great meal. The home-baked bread was incredible (just out of the oven), and special mention for the delicious chocolate brownie for dessert.
