This hotel is spotlessly clean, covid safe and the owners very nice. We stayed for 4 nights at the end of August. Due to covid there was no cooked breakfast but we were heading out each day anyway and always found somewhere near for food.

Stayed for 2 weeks and no complaints. Room spotless, breakfast brilliant, my wife is going to miss the hog's pudding, both Linda and John very pleasant and helpful with advice on where to go. The staff also very pleasant and helpful and steered us to Jelbert's, we'll also miss that ice cream with clotted cream. Would recommend this guest house to anyone going to Penzance and would return. Easy walking distance to either the promenade or town. Made good use of the Dot with Alexa listening to all the golden hits, never had TV on in the fortnight.

You did not even stay here as you failed to turn up after booking with us. We refunded you £99 when, in compliance with our terms & conditions we were not obliged to offer any refund at all to you. I have logged your details with all the OTA's and hospitality web sites as a trouble maker and fraudster.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a triple room with my partner and friend. We were welcomed by Linda, who was very pleasant and informative. Room was good size and spotlessly clean. Good shower thought small ensuite. Breakfast was lovely with a fair sized menu. Only complaint would be was when booking breakfast was advertised until 10.30am. Though on arrival we were informed breakfast was between 8am and 9am. We found this early as we were on holiday and were looking forward to relaxing and having a lie in.
