I cannot praise Glencree House enough - wonderful breakfast, fantastic rooms that are well kept, tastefully decorated and extremely clean, warm and welcoming hosts - you name it! We didn't want to leave... I wholeheartedly recommend Glencree and would most definitely visit again.

We stayed here en route to the Isles of Scilly at the end of April 2014 and we were made very welcome. Sadly, our flight was cancelled the next day, due to extreme weather conditions and we found ourselves spending another night at Glencree. Again, nothing was too much trouble and we enjoyed our stay again in another very clean and comfortable room. Andrew and Lynsey were great hosts and seemed genuine to share their lovely home with us and cater for all unexpected needs!
We would certainly return to Glencree and have no hesitation in recommending it to others too. Thank you!

We were greeted warmly and the room was lovely with a wonderful sea view. The food was excellent and organic and locally sourced where possible. This was important to us as we are organic farmers ourselves. The house is well situated for walking and public transport. We arrived in Penzance by train and although we took a cab to Glencree it is only a 20 minute walk or so from the station. Our hosts were very helpful and have good local knowledge. We would definitely choose to stay here again if we visit Penzance.

We stayed one night with our 2 year-old son and found the house to be well located right next to the seaside. The room was impecable and cozy and the owners very helpful, resourceful and friendly. All in all it was relaxing and good value-for-money (breakfast was home made and very good). I am only sad that it is not closer to home... we would go more often.

Our recent stay in Penzance was made more pleasurable by a welcome from our Aussie host Andrew. Andrew helped taking our luggage to our room. He spend much time explaining where the best places to eat were, where we would find a laundromat that would do our laundry for us and what were the sites to see around Penzance that fitted our itinerary and how best to get to them. They had good supply of travel books and maps for the local area.
Our room was charming, thoughtfully furnished, airy and clean with a small but good ensuite bathroom.
Breakfast was excellent with a great choice of options for both fresh continental and cooked food.
A very pleasant stay with our hosts available at all times to answer any of our questions. Very happy to recommend Glencree House

Room Tip: Upstairs room facing the street was light and airy - little if any traffic noise
