“Nice enough place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

The website states that they cater for vegans so it was a little disappointing to be told there was no soya (or other vegan) milk available at breakfast. I was pointed to other things to eat in a corner and I did find (unfortunately, unlabelled) cereals, dairy yogurts and some fruit. The fruit and fruit juices were fine, there was toast, coffee was fine and there WAS a cooked meal for me. SO, overall the breakfast was more than acceptable, but, stating that vegans are catered for I expected a little more.
The room was clean, comfortable and up STEEP stairs - don't get drunk on your visit!
Location is on seafront and easy to access town centre.

Room Tip: The top room is steep to access - like much of Penzance.

Just returned from a 4 day break at the Seawaves B&B in Penzance. This is our 3rd time staying with Martin and Bernie, who always make us extremely welcome and serve an amazing breakfast. This small b&b is ideally located with everything close to hand.

Me and my family stayed at seawaves for 5 days, and had a wonderful time, Martin and Bernadine were very helpful and welcoming. They gave us lots of advice of things to do and places to see. We loved the sea view from the attic room of Mounts Bay and st micheals mount.Each morning we had a full cornish breakfast with plenty of fruit yoghurt and cereals, also Martin and Bernadine were very accomadating with our 2 young children as they are very fussy eaters.The rooms were spotless and very clean we highly recommend this guest house and plan to return at easter.

Room Tip: the attic is the best for views

Our stay at Seawaves was extremely enjoyable. The owners couldn't do enough for you and were always there to help with local tourist information. The rooms were spacious, very clean and tidy. Breakfast was brilliant with the option of a home cooked full English or plenty of cereals and juice to choose from. Me and my family would not hesitate to stay here again, and would consider it one of the best B&B's in Penzance. Cant wait to return.

Room Tip: En-Suit front, Excellent view.
