Just returned from a 5 night break at this lovely hotel and I would certainly recommend it to any one thinking of staying in Penzance. It is listed as 5* Bed and Breakfast accommodation for the discerning traveller and it certainly lives up to that requirement.
Simon and Susan are obviously very experienced at what they do and have perfected their service over the years. The decoration of the house is lovely, very high quality with lovely furnishings and pictures. The floor coverings are of high quality and give the impression they are replaced regularly to keep the standards high. The linen and curtains in our room were co-ordinated and added to the overall impression of quality.
Simon was very hospitable on our arrival and gave us all the spiel that he has to give to all of his visitors, and which he must find mind numbing, but his professionalism doesnt allow that to show through. He gave us good recommendations for places to get food and also helped with ideas of where to visit in the area.
Breakfast was lovely, the Newlyn fish was wonderful, so much so that we almost ignored the full english.
The extras in the rooms, sweets, biscuits and bottled water as well as good quality coffee were very much appreciated.
Regents Terrace is a lovely setting and Camilla House sits well on it. Yes the parking is an issue, but not something that cannot be solved with a little car moving. Unfortunately when this house was built many years ago, they didnt have the foresight to know that everyone would have a car in the future that they would want to park there!
Simon and Susan, you have just about got it perfect (just update the info in the guest books in the rooms and perfection will be awarded), keep up the good work and thank you for giving us a lovely stay.
