Found this gem on Google (while looking for somewhere else!!) Very comfy bed with superb decorations. Not massive breakfast eaters but what we did have was excellent.

We stayed 4 nights at Venton Vean and were highly impressed. The house has been beautifully refurbished with lots of really personal touches (we enjoyed the home made biscuits in the room). The breakfasts were beautiful with very high quality ingredients. But what really made our stay was how friendly and helpful David and Philippa were. They made excellent recommendations for walks, produced timetables for trains and buses for us, but the winning touch was giving us lovely glasses and ice for our gin and tonics without even asking! Perfect. We will be back!

Out of all the B&B's and Boutique Hotels we have stayed in anywhere in the world - this is honestly number 1.

We picked this one from the reviews on TripAdvisor and whilst we didn't have a booking, Philippa and David made room for us. Despite our intent to stay for one night - the place was so amazing that we ended up staying for three!

The rooms are gorgeous - clean, white (see the pictures on here - you will love them). The showers are amazing and definitely try the shower gels they have!

But what makes this place exceptional is Philippa and David. They are warm and welcoming hosts, happy to make recommendations on places to visit and restaurants in the area (all excellent by the way). They are clearly foodies (thank heaven!) and I cannot recommend the cakes, biscuits and breakfasts highly enough. David's chrorizo breakfast is a revelation, and if you can, beg him very nicely to make this for you :)

Venton Vean provides the perfect balance between a home away from home and a private retreat. Perfect for holidays. It's location is also ideal for exploring all of Cornwall - winter or summer!

I cannot recommend this place highly enough and we will definitely be making detours on any future trips to make sure we stay here again.

Thank you for Philippa and David for providing such an amazing stay for us.

Room Tip: All the rooms are brilliant so you will win no matter what!!!

Great B&B in Penzance. The place is very stylish, combining period features with a modern twist, rooms are superb, great food and lovely hosts. And it's 5 mins walk to the sea. Recommended!

What a lovely B&B. My husband and I stayed at Venton Vean for five nights and were extremely comfortable there. We were very well looked after by Philippa and David from the moment we walked in the front door (served with tea and cake!) to the moment we left. The property has been tastefully decorated to a very high standard. The breakfasts were great with various cereals, fresh fruit, home made yogurt, fresh bread, home made jam and freshly cooked breakfast. Venton Vean is situated opposite the entrance to Penlee Park which leads to the shops, pubs, restaurants etc. Philippa and David suggested restaurants/pubs to visit etc. and even booked us a cab one evening without having to ask them to do so. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they obviously know what holiday makers want when away from home. Our Room 2 was very comfortable, with TV, ipod docking station, cosy bathrobes, tea and coffee making facilities with none of those little pots of long life milk ! We helped ourselves to fresh milk for our morning and afternoon tea, which was enjoyed with homemade biscuit treats! All in all we would recommend Venton Vean to anyone wishing to visit Penzance. Well done Philippa and David!

My husband and I stayed here with our 5 month old baby as part of our honeymoon trip around Cornwall in Sept 2011 and we were blown away! We stayed in Room 2 which was stunning and had enough room for a travel cot which they supplied for us.

So I have discovered that I can’t actually write a short review when I am excited about somewhere (this is my second attempt as the husband told me my first was too long) so instead I am going to bullet point our top ten likes –

1. Philippa and David – they are so welcoming, chilled and eager to help you with local information. Nothing is too much trouble
2. They are baby friendly – supplied a travel cot and welcomed our baby
3. Design classics such as the Rar and Tom Vac chair around every corner. Being a bit of a design freak I was in my element in this house!
4. The décor is amazing. Such attention to detail has been paid and such love has been put into this house. Everything is excellent quality, from the socket surrounds to the Conran coffee table in the lounge.
5. So clean!
6. Tea and homemade cake upon arrival
7. The bed – everything about it was luxurious
8. The guest lounge – beautifully decorated, stylish and relaxing. The baby monitor worked perfectly from here to our room so we could relax downstairs in the evening
9. Breakfast – homemade yoghurt & jams, pancakes, haddock and eggs . . . not your average B&B menu!
10. Really nice touch supplying docking stations in the rooms and guest lounge

Room Tip: If you are travelling with a baby request Room 2 as it has enough room for a travel cot
