“Wonderful & Exciting”
Reviewed October 1, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have booked our accommodation with Sue and Rodger and it was our first time of being accommodated 'on board' and we enjoyed that to the full. Not only it was exciting to wake up every morning in the marina but the opulent breakfast which Sue and Rodger kindly prepared for us every morning gave us enough energy for the day adventures.
Sue and Rodger are very nice and extremely kind people with a great knowledge of the area.
On top of that Penzance itself is a brilliant place to explore Corwall - this the very southern and western tip of the UK.
We had a brilliant time and we would love to go back and I am sure we will at some point ever if it at least for a tea as Roger kindly suggested.

“SUPERB RELAXING BREAK.”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Captains Warden exceeded our expectations. Sue and Roger welcomed us warmly and explained everything we needed to know, including local information.

We were looking for a total relax without having to get up early for breakfast and that we got-- woken each day by the smell of fresh croissants, an abundance of fresh fruit, cereals etc. The accomodation was very comfortable, in fact we struggled to get up !!

A truly exclllent experience and we will be back.

“A special place with wonderful hosts”
Reviewed September 12, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

There's something very special about waking up to the panorama of Penzance from the harbour, snug in the characterful wheelhouse of the Ocean Warden. Roger and Sue provide a wonderful welcome, and could not be warmer hosts, which makes for a lovely and memorable break.
The comfortable Captain's Suite is immaculate and the breakfast generous (it appears as if by magic, and each time, it gave me a big silly grin in the morning).
The harbour is a working one, but not a noisy one, so you have the benefit of the bustle without losing the peaceful feeling. It's also close to restaurants, the station, buses and good ice cream!
I had a unique experience and look forward to returning.

Liked best: Combination of lovely location and hosts
Liked least: Leaving

“The perfect end to our trip!”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Roger and Sue couldn't have been more welcoming, they went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.They let us arrive early, gave us a lift to the station with all our luggage and packed us up some breakfast for our early start!. The room was lovely, the bed really comfortable and we really close to everything. The boat was fantastic, the perfect way to end our trip to Cornwall.

“Amazing experience, perfect hosts, massive breakfast”
Reviewed August 27, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A hidden gem in Penzance, we stayed for 4 days perfect location within easy reach of the delights of the Cornish coast, Spotlessy clean, with adequate facilities, wifi, small but useable fridge ( holds a couple of bottles of wine!), TV in bedroom, you have use of the both decks, so when the sun did come out you can have a glass of wine whilst taking in the views of St Micheals Mount the harbour & absorbing the serenity of the Cornish lifestyle, the bathroom which is for your private use only is down stairs, so you have to go down a ships ladder to get to it, parking literally outside and it's free, the breakfast, amazing continental style fresh every morning, Sue sets it up around 6.00 and nothing is too much bother if you have any special requests, but be warned, you will need a long walk afterwards ( unless they have taken our advise!!) Both Roger & Sue live on board but leave you too it unless you need anything, they really are the perfect hosts & made the experience fantastic. Well worth a visit

Myself and my partner stayed here for 5 nights the beginning of August. We couldn't have asked for anything better. The boat is stunning, very clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast everything morning was brought up to the captains suite, and was absoloutely lovely. The owners, were very helpful and very friendly. I will definetly be visiting again soon. The best holiday we've had, thanks to the unique setting. I would highly recommend.
