This is a welcoming and luxurious B&B in a quiet residential street in Penzance. There is no off-road parking, but we were always able to park right beside the gate. The room was comfortable and very well-equipped; when I asked for soap rather than shower gel for the shower (explaining that I found shower gel made it slippery, and I have a bad hip) I was brought not only soap but a non-slip mat so effective that I am buying one for myself, to take travelling with me! Philippa’s husband David helped us upstairs with our heavy cases, and Philippa went to great lengths to provide my husband with the best wake-up coffee possible, leaving us a cafetière with fresh-ground coffee already in it, and putting a little jug of cold milk outside our door before we woke to save me from having to struggle downstairs to fetch it from the fridge. Nothing seemed too much trouble! Philippa was happy to take time to advise on local places of interest, and to lend us a marked-up map of how to get there. Breakfast the first day was perhaps a little slow, but by the second day we had the hang of it and asked for our eggs as soon as we came downstairs, so that they didn’t take so long to appear (although there was plenty of self-service toast and delicious preserves to keep us going). We will certainly return to this excellent B&B!
