“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. Due to a problem with our original accommodation near Polperro we were very lucky to find this place and even luckier that they had a vacancy for a couple with a labrador! The owners are great and really look after their guests (Ella is absolutely lovely too!). Our room was really nice, very clean and cosy with everything you could need for a nice stay. The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice and it all seemed to be really good quality locally sourced food. There is also a nice lounge and bar area with all kinds of board games, books and newspapers to relax with. Generally just a really nice atmosphere at the hotel and we found it a really nice relaxing place to stay. It's also in a really good location for exploring Polperro, the coast paths and the great pubs in the area! The weather wasn't great in early April so it was good to be staying in such a nice hotel. Really can't think of anything negative to say about the place.

Once again we have had a wonderful week at the Penryn House. Anna and Chris have got everything just right. I have reviewed this before but feel it well deserves to be mentioned again. Still the best breakfast I've ever eaten in a Hotel. All freshly cooked and locally sourced. Another warm welcome from them both. Our room was cosy and spotlessly clean. Looking forward to our next stay.

This hotel is in a lovely spot and much effort has been put into giving guests a pleasant stay; everything was spotless,breakfast was good and, very important in Polperro, there was parking.
However, my single room was so small there was no room for a bedside table which meant I had to put night time water and all those other things one keeps beside one at night either on the floor or on an out of reach cupboard necessitating getting out of bed. The sound proofing from the next door room was also very poor and I could hear my neighbour's television and conversation.Anna was very decent about refunding my remaining prepaid nights which I appreciated. This is a decent place -just don't chose the single room!

Room Tip: Not number 5-the single-tiny!

We stayed for just one night at the Penryn House but that is long enough to give it a very good rating. On arrival we were greeted by the host, Anna I think, and immediately felt at ease. She had re-allocated us to the back of the property due to the weather deterioration forecast overnight and was concerned that the wind might keep us awake. This was much appreciated because we didn't hear a thing. The room was a decent size and spotlessly clean with all needs provided for. Breakfast was really good and very well organised, nothing seemed too much trouble. A very sociable and friendly host, all in all an excellent stay. Would definately go back and recommend it to anyone looking for a quality B & B in Polperro.

We have returned many times to the Penryn House Hotel and Chris and Anna have always made us feel most welcome, indeed, as if we were returning friends.
We generally try and book the 'best room' as indicated on their website, but having stayed in other rooms have always found them clean and comfortable, albeit some of them are a little tight for space, but as you're only using them to put your head down for your duration, this is not an issue.
The breakfast has a good selection and the 'full english' is extremely tasty and a must to begin your day with and you won't require lunch, that's for sure !
They have a great location which enables you to park your car up for the duration of your stay if you are not looking to travel out much and simply enjoy the quiet surroundings of Polperro itself, such as the Blue Peter (great ales, food & atmosphere), Couch's (great restaurant and superb food), Nelsons (nice quaint restaurant) and the couple of coffee shops dotted around the place.
Just be aware that they have a Great Dane, who is lovely I may add, but if you're not a dog lover, just let Chris or Anna know prior to this so they are aware of this fact.
Other than that, it's an ideal base to discover Polperro and the surrounding area and great for the coastal path walk as well, even if you don't like walking !

Room Tip: Go for the 'best room' as indicated on their website, if you can

Stayed for one night in January 2013. We were met with a great welcome, especially for our second dog, which we'd rescued the day before! The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast excellent. Highly recommended.
