I booked for my inlaws to stay and they had a wonderful time. Excellent value for money and far more exciting than normal holiday accommodation.
The hosts went above and beyond to help them make the most of their time in Penzance so thank you!
We strolled up the gangplank to meet the warm hosts of the MV Ocean Warden and gleefully climbed the ship's ladder to the captain's quarters, with a cozy bedroom, wheelhouse sitting area, and private (modern) bath to ourselves. The view of the working harbor was surpassed only by the sumptuous brunch laid out for us each morning and wine each evening! The ship is a short walk from the train station and the frequent buses that run to St. Ives, Minack Theatre, and other Penwith locations. Add a local cab driver as needed and you won't need to test your nerves with a rental car on the narrow roads! We stayed on the ship for 4 nights and loved it! Sue and Roger and their loyal crew member, Junior, were friendly and accommodating. We look forward to returning!
Dear Roger and Sue
We can not thank you enough for how wonderful you have been.
You have made us feel so welcome and looked after us so perfectly.
Your breakfast is delicious, we could not ask for more.
We have already been waxing lyrical to our friends and family about this hidden gem, the Ocean Warden, and it's amazing crew, Sue and Roger, and will continue to do so.
We leave with heavy hearts, but we will, most definitely, return again soon. Thank you.
This beautifully restored boat was our home for 5 nights, occupying the Captain's cabin. Great location in a bustling harbour, close to the town centre, and bars and restaurants. Roger and Sue were great and friendly hosts, and Sue laid on a wonderful breakfast, which she somehow made appear like magic each morning!
Altogether, a wonderful stay. Thank you Sue and Roger.
Sue and Roger are the most fantastic hosts, we had such a wonderful time sharing their home. We wanted for nothing, breakfast was such a stunning array of choices and our quarters were so comfortable.
The MV Ocean Warden is such an unusual, yet a delightful place to cast your anchor - I would recommend that you give it a try.
You really could not ask for more - a trawler lovingly restored and converted into a really comfortable and enchanting B&B by Roger and Sue, They are really special hosts, who offer a warm welcome and are eager to please but they are never intrusive, The location is amazing - moored in the Inner Harbour you are smack bang in the middle of Penzance at the foot of Chapel Street. The Quayside atmosphere makes adds to the experience as you watch the coming and goings around the harbour from your vantage point atop the MV Ocean Warden.
A continental style breakfast miraculously appears every morning in your "lounge" which is in fact the wheelhouse to set you up for the day. There is no better place to stay and soak up the maritime history of Pennzane than the MV Ocean Warden!
