“Stunning apartment in the heart of Penzance”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This apartment really has the wow factor - we were delighted with the light airy vast space and contemporary decor in every room, with panoramic views over the bay and the rooftops of Penzance. The owners have done a lovely job of converting rooms from the former telephone exchange into a wonderful spacious apartment which is centrally located near shops and restaurants. We would love to return for another visit.

“Spacious, welcoming, bright, 5 Star!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 for a stay in March 2013

The White Rooms, Penzance is such a great place to stay and I've been a few times now. It really is worth the 5 hour train journey, and better still, only a 10 minute or so walk from the station.

It's a must for girlie weekends, with enough space to hang out freely, to laugh, dance and enjoy those great views! When you walk in all the stresses and strains just fall away, it's the high ceilings, the decor and the expanse of it all. It is also very clean and well kept and I love the wet room!

Penzance high Street is great with many shops to browse through. I love the Sunday vegetarian lunch at the Crown, it has to be the best nationwide! Together with the beach side walks, it's a great mix of everything.

The White Rooms makes for a great get away, a very pleasant stay and I highly recommend it.

“real peace and beauty - exceeded expectations!”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just come back from a fantastic few days at the White Rooms. We were genuinely amazed! The house is hugely spacious (an old telephone exchange building). It's contemporary and stylish whilst still being comfortable and cosy - with huge windows and great views.

Just a few doors down from the high street so loads of restaurants, pubs and shops on your doorstep.

Beautiful weather also helped, but we had a brilliant holiday with family!

Found out that it also has underfloor heating throughout, so will definitely consider it for a winter get away.

“The only place to stay in Cornwall”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This space is so cool, its like a New York loft apartment but right by the sea. Has everything you could want for either a short or long stay. I went with friends and it suits every mood, with beautiful views and comfortable surroundings. Only issue with it, was it was so hard to leave I loved it so much

“Breathtaking property”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 for a stay in September 2013

7 of us spent a long weekend there and had a simply wonderful time. The property is absolutely humongous with lots of windows and breathtaking views. The kitchen is great and there's table tennis AND a pool table. The property is centrally located in Penzance and within walking distance of lots to see and do.

“brilliant, couldn't have asked for more”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 for a stay in September 2012

All what you'd need in a holiday home, well laid out, spacious and great views. Well designed, and lovely to be around. Wish I could've stayed longer

We were lucky enough to spend three nights at The White Rooms with our family of 5 and 2 friends. We are frequent visitors to Cornwall and this is definitely the best accommodation we have found so far. There was enough room for us all to have some peace and space when we wanted it but fun extras that were great like the tennis and pool tables. Big eating space with fabulous views. Fantastic showers ( essential really after a day at the beach). We enjoyed being somewhere modern and cool but so family friendly. Not too precious. Highly recommended.
