“Lovely B&B”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Lovely room, very welcoming and helpful people, felt at home here. The breakfast was freshly cooked and just as i wanted and there was plenty to choose from. They made a real effort to give you an individual experience and adapt to your needs.

Nothing but good things to say. Definitely recommend. Great location. Rooms were cosy but spacious enough to feel that one could relax also. Andrew and Lynsey were very welcoming and helpful. Would return!

We stayed at Glencree House for a one night stop over en-route to The Scilly Isles and we could not fault any aspect of the B&B. Our bed was very comfortable, our bedroom was so clean, as was the whole house; attention to cleanliness can sometimes be lacking in B&Bs but certainly not here. Our breakfast was excellent and our hosts happily catered for our vegan diets without any problems. The location is great, just a short walk from the cafes and shops of Penzance, and just a few minutes drive to the parking area for the boat to Scilly. The host (Andrew) was polite and always willing to help and advise - and a genuinely friendly person. We would recommend this B&B and if we ever return to Penzance, we would definitely stay here again.

Having really enjoyed our stay here in April 2013 we booked again for May 2014. Everything about this B&B is excellent - from initial communication, the warm welcome from Andrew and Lynsey, the high standard of the rooms and the superb breakfasts! The location of Glencree and the very reasonable prices will place this B&B at the top of the list for any visitor to Penzance. Excellent!

I had a one night stay in Penzance in May 2014. I received a friendly helpful welcome at Glencree House. Nothing was too much trouble with lots of helpful tips about the surrounding area. The breakfast was piping hot and freshly prepared, with a good selection of fresh fruit and cooked breakfast. I hope to return

My partner and I stayed here for two nights. Being on a limited budget meant we wanted a B&B which provided good value for money. The owners, Andrew and Lynsey, were very helpful when we made initial inquiries and the subsequent booking. upon arrived we were greeted by Lynsey who was very friendly and showed us the facilities and our room which we were very impressed with - we stayed in Room 5 which is well-proportioned and has a spacious bay window with amazing views overlooking the sea. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean with an en-suite bathroom with a nice hot shower. It's clear that the owners have put in a great deal of thought and consideration into the accommodation e.g. a generous selection of quality herbal teabags, coffee, hot chocolate, cookies and chocolates in addition to the nice shower gel and body lotion. The breakfast was equally well thought out and presented; whilst we're not huge eaters there was plenty on offer and we sampled the delicious blueberries and strawberries along with our cereal and toast. Overall we were very impressed and would certainly come and stay at Glencree should we be in this neck of the woods again.

Room Tip: Room 5 is well-proportioned and provides a lovely sea view.

My family went to Penzance for our wedding and were warmly received. The location was excellent, only a min or two from the sea front, also close to all the shops in town centre. The apartment was nicely decorated, modern but with a person touch. Owners were very friendly and helpful. I didn't stay with them for breakfast but they all seemed very content.
