Stayed for one night. Room clean, owner very helpful. Easy to park on the road, wifi, tea facilities. Short 5 min walk into town. Good breakfast in the morning. Stayed in room 1 which was rear facing with a bath. A good selection of pubs and restaurants options close by.

I regularly go to Elmsdale for a spring break. I am always made to feel welcome and always impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of Dick and Glenis. The house is clean, bright, centrally situated and conscientiously maintained, and the facilities are first class. I'm happy to recommend Elmsdale to anyone visiting Penzance.

Rooms are very very clean, breakfast is amazing, the hosts are very nice and tells you lots about where to go. 10/10 will visit again Only downside is that the breakfast time is 8-9 which is slightly inconvienient as we were just vositing Penzance, wanting to relax more, instead of waking up at 8

Kelvin, Thank you for your review. We are pleased that both you and your father enjoyed your stays. With regards to a later breakfast, you should have asked us if we could provide a later breakfast.
