Prior to my visit here they rang me early in the morning wondering what time I was planning to get there as they were going out and said that if they weren't there they would leave the keys in an envelope with some instructions in the porch. This brought up security concerns before we even arrived, however it was not...

Good communication before arrival. As we arrived by the sleeper train we asked if we could leave our luggage at the B&B during the day, no problem. No problem getting in during the evening either.

Stayed 2 nights. This was one of 14 Guest Houses we stayed at during our month long trip throughout England. It rated at the bottom of our list. There is small and then there is cramped. Absolutely no place to put 2 average size suitcases. Not even under the bed. Constantly stepping over and squeezing by them. Small, awkward corner...

Location is amazing..right on Penzance seafront. Parking is on street and can be difficult to find..but it's free so once you have parked ditch the car and get a bus ticket!. Lovely couple who make you feel welcome straight away. I had front first floor room (3) overlooking the sea. Ensuite is small but enough for what you need! Tea...

We stayed this "quadruple room" or family room (room4) for upto 4 people. (1 double bet, 1 single bed and a cot)It is an addic and you can barely stand in the room.

“Would not stay here again and would not recommend it. This was the only dud of the 14 Guest Houses we stayed in during our trip.”

“our first B & B experience. admittedly we were looking for a deal. we had a nice room with a view the bay. the shared toilet area it was clean and bottles of shampoo etc were provided. the funishings were very very dated. the communal room couch was broken which i found out when i sat down and the cushion kept sinking and sinking. the owners were friendly but definately not authentic and i got the impression they really didn't want to be in the B & B business. ie when they were around they had rooms to let but if they left or didn't want to be bothered the full sign would go up. this has nothing to do with a 'review' but speaks to an attitude. basically, the place has bad mojo around. if you don't understand that comment then the place could be right for you.”
