We were a group of six that stayed three nights in four rooms as Penhallow. It was a very nice experience, with clean and fresh rooms and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The shower is one of the best I have ever tried! You have access to a big garden and a common room where also the breakfast is served....

Loved this guest house, really nice inland location with views up towards the airport. It is about a 15 minute walk from the centre of St Marys, and about a 20 minute walk to the airport - I got around on foot without any need of other forms of transport on the Island. Cooked breakfast was available each morning, using...

Found the place OK with the aid of the directions supplied (I'd not have found it otherwise - there are no signs for Pilot's Retreat that I could see). Welcomed with a pot of tea, biscuits and plenty of local knowledge from Scillonian Cath. The room is not large, but is definitely value for money, and makes good use of...

We booked to stay at Penhallow from Saturday to Saturday as we flew over on the small plane. We were met by Kevin who showed us to our room No. 1. There was a very comfortable King size bed with a view out the side of the property. The room also had tea/coffee making with a kettle & there were...

We booked the Penhallow for a week from Friday 2nd to Friday 9th Sept. We were not disappointed!. On arrival we were greeted by Cath and Kevin and were shown to our room No 1. We were impressed by the size of the room - lots of space. There was a king size bed (which was more comfy than our...

Initially found Penhallow from a Google search & very glad we did. Location ideal for both Hugh Town & the Old Town. Cath & Kevin were exceptional hosts and the breakfasts were outstanding. Rooms were really well decorated, clean & had everything you needed. The extra little touches made it all a very welcoming stay. Nothing was too much trouble...
