As a young couple, we wanted to stay somewhere special for our holiday down to Penzance, and we chose Glencree House. It was absolutely amazing, we had a VERY warm welcome by Andrew and offered to take our bags for us until our room was ready.
The room was very clean and layed out very nicely, the complimentary teas and coffees provided were lovely, and the toiletries were lovely.
Breakfast was outstanding, we had a lot of different choices to pick from, I would highly recommend the traditional breakfast or the salmon! Another nice thing about the breakfast was that pretty much all of it was local produce, which was really yummy!
There are lots of local restaurants which can be visited, we absolutely loved the Thai Moon restaurant which is about 3 minutes walk from the guest house. Penzance is also not too far from St. Ives, which is also a lovely place to visit.
All in all, we were extremely impressed and happy about everything at Glencree House and we hope to go back one day!
