“comfortable and good value”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Lovely clean well-appointed B&B with really good breakfast. Hosts Alan and Sally tremendously helpful and welcoming to all their visitors. As others have said, the rooms are on the small side and the bathrooms quite snug, but that's because it's a house not a hotel. Location is good for exploring the Penwith peninsula - just round the corner is the bus stop for the 300 service which is an open-top bus tour of the coast. The town centre is about 15 minutes stroll and the seafront is 2 minutes away.

What an excellent B&B, Paul was a welcome host and very knowledgeable about the local area. Lots of choice for breakfast, the room/shower room was modern,clean and furnished to a high standard, Wifi available and easy to access(we stayed on the 1st floor).
Some excellent places for evening meals nearby- "The Navy Inn" in Queen Street, "The Boat Shed"

Stayed here with my wife in July 2012. We were made very welcome on arrival and throughout our stay. The double room with en suite was clean and nice with all the usual facilities. We found the location to be ideal for our needs for a few days. Breakfast was to a very good standard, and even on the day their oven broke down,we noticed no change in the good service or quality of the food. A good location for a few day's break!

We stayed at Chiverton house for a few days for our honeymoon.
We've not been in a b&b for years, and things have changed so much.
It was a great location. The breakfast was amazing, lots of choice.
Wifi was available, the rooms were modern and very clean. Our hosts were very welcoming and also really helpful. we would definately stay here again when we visit Penzance.

Chiverton House is a great hotel with wonderful breakfasts that you can choose from. The only problem I had was the fact that it said free wi-fi and a connection was almost non-existent on the second floor where we stayed.

Continued our run of fantastic B&Bs across Devon and Cornwall by staying at "Alan and Sally's house" (Chiverton) for 3 nights.

The moment you step in you feel at home here, NIce room, well appointed, WIFI, std coffee and tea making in room etc. and a comfy bed.

Full English breakfast as per your request each evening so that Sally can prepare for the morning cook up. Great selection. And very family friendly.

As others have said Alan has extensive local knowledge and will impart his gems of local wisdom when appropriate.

An all round great place, Nicely positioned about 20 min walk along the promenade to the centre of Penzance.

Highly recommended.

We stayed for two nights in a double and family room as we were attending a family wedding. Small B &B that really looks after its guests well. Lovely choice of breakfast options with fresh fruit and yoghurt, cereals and full cooked breakfast. The proprietors are very friendly and learn all guests names so make everyone feel welcome and valued, very sincere couple who take pride in offering a good service.
