Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful guesthouse in a great location in Penzance - only 5 mins walk into town and some lovely restaurants and pubs nearby. We had a very smooth and easy booking and check in, was shown to a beautiful spacious room. Everything was spotless and we had a good nights sleep. Beautiful breakfast the next morning. Would recommend to anyone.

As someone commented on another review, this is the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Ally and Mike are extremely knowledgeable and had lots of great recommendations about things to see and do. The rooms and home are lovely and the breakfast was great. We were able to park on the street nearby.

Stayed for 3 nights and could not have been made to feel anymore welcome. Superb full English breakfast , the room was beautiful, lovely & warm. The location is great, just off the seafront, we were able to park right outside for free. Easy to get to Mousehole. Marazion, St Ives and the surrounding area Elvis ( the golden retriever ) is a superstar. Our expectations were exceeded everywhere !

The best B & B by far I have ever stayed in! I can not recommend Holbein House enough! Room was fabulous, warm and very comfortable. The hosts are lovely (particularly Elvis :-) ) The full English breakfast was beautiful and set us up for the day and location fantastic! Easy to access Marazion, Newlyn and Mousehole along with everything that Penzance has to offer. Will be back again no doubt and going to book in for the summer! Can't wait to go back!

I cannot recommend this B& B enough. Run by a wonderful couple and thier gorgeous, well behaved golden retriever who stole the show (and my son was besotted with, well actually we all were). Absolutely immaculate throughout. Their attention to detail is second to none as is their attention to thier guests needs. Very comfortable rooms, beds and amazing showers and the breakfast was incredible. I've never been to a B&B and actually not wanted to leave but I could have stayed for so much longer. If you visit, you will be warmly welcomed, looked after, be so comfortable and well fed. We will 100% be back.

Now that we have stayed at Holbein House we fully understand why they continually receive rave reviews. We had an excellent 2-night stay after completing our hike on the SWCP. Mike & Ally were brilliant hosts and the pride & professionalism they display really does stand them apart from other B&Bs. We would definitely stay again.

What can we say... This is our 2nd visit to Ali, Mike and of course Elvis the gorgeous golden retriever (who was dressed up for the occasion!). They couldn't do enough for us. We were there for our daughter's wedding and we were spoiled rotten. Again, rooms excellent and comfortable. Breakfast superb, with everything you could wish for, cooked beautifully. Hospitality beyond expectations. Will see you again soon, love from The Pelhams.

The best B and B we have ever stayed in. Our host was very welcoming and friendly. Our room was tastefully decorated with a very clean and decent bathroom. We enjoyed a communal breakfast with the other guests. Breakfast was excellent with good coffee, fresh fruit and individually cooked breakfasts. We would absolutely recommend and hope we get the opportunity to stay there again.

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst touring Cornwall. Mike and Ally made the stay with ideas for eating and drinking. , leant us cushions and rain coats when we visited minack theatre and gave us advice where to visit They made a special effort when they found out it was my partners special birthday. Rooms cleaned daily lovely comfortable bed. And great breakfast I definitely recommend scrambled eggs. Out of this world. I liked the communal breakfast and chatting to other guests from all over the world .Will be back for a return visit
