Higher Faugan Parc
Ranked #25 of 84 Penzance B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 8, 2012

This was recommended by a friend after I was struggling to find any availability in or close to St Ives, and it turned out to be a very good recommendation. Lovely sized rooms, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. I popped by head round the door of another room that was vacant and beautifully individual whilst making full use of the space. Lovely array of painting around the house.
I rather enjoyed the 'already in room' breakfast concept of a healthy breakfast that was continental in style that you eat at a time that suits you. Top quality products and replaced daily.
Doug was the perfect host, knowledge ready for you to tap into if you needed it, but more than happy to stay in the background if you already knew your plans.

We heartily recommend Higher Faugan Parc. Fantastic location in Newlyn, a beautiful fishing village, close to Penzance, a bigger town with a great shopping centre. The accommodation is faultless. We had a suite which was huge, beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and warm, quiet & comfortable. Everything you could ever need. We also really enjoyed the breakfast provided in our suite, inc. fresh bread, croissants, buns, cereals, yoghurts, fruit, juices - you name it, it was there! If we had wanted, we could have easily cooked eggs etc. Doug was charming and helpful, a real gent. We were only there 3 nights, but we wish it had been longer. Thank you.

What a wonderful place! Peaceful, quiet, very comfortable. Lovely stocked kitchen area so that you can help yourself to breakfast on your own. Doug is very helpful and knowledgeable. Can't wait to return to this place.

Our stay here was wonderful. We stayed to catch the early ferry to the Isle of Scilly. We were greeted by Doug who is friendly and helpful, he had remembered from when I booked it that we had just got married and upgraded us to the most beautiful room with great sea views. The mini kitchen for breakfast is a wonderful idea, stocked with fresh croissants, bread, milk, jam juice etc. everything you could need. The rooms were decorated beautifully and the bathrooms were impeccably clean. The beds were fantastic, proper memory foam mattress. I would recommend staying here to anyone and would love to travel back.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Higher Faugan Parc during a trip around Cornwall. The hotel is family run and the family could not have been more friendly and helpful. Very considerate. The room was "home from home" and the bed was the most comfortable we've ever slept on. We don't like being tied to a strict breakfast time, so we were happy the room came with breakfast supplied and a self contained area with fridge etc (perfect if you also like your own coffee). We would be more than happy to return in the future.

The location is very easy to find perched on top of the hill over looking the harbour. The rooms were of a high standard, very clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was substantial.

A lovely building which has been tastefully converted from a family home to a high standard b&b. It's situated just above Newlyn near Penzance, on top of a hill at the ned of a long driveway. We only stayed one night but would be more than happy to return in the future. We were greeted well and shown to our room, No.2 (we were given a free upgrade to a suite. We'd only booked a standard room). The room was very nicely presented and fitted out. We didn't have a problem with the continental breakfast left in the room, it was more than adequate for us. We had dinner in a nice country pub in a little hamlet called Paul. It was about a mile door-to-door from Higher Faun Parc. A very nice 'pub meal'. All in all a very nice b&b to be recommended.
