Glencree House is truly a wonderful B&B accommodation and Andrew & Lynsey are the perfect hosts. Located on a quiet, residential side street, Glencree house is within walking distance to restaurants, local attractions and bus stops. Parking is located on the street on a "first come, first served" basis and may be an issue for late evening arrival, however, we were always able to find a spot close by.
The accommodations are well appointed, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Our room had a cosy seating area where we could enjoy our morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. It was such a pleasure to return to our B&B to find the luxury treats (chocolates, biscuits and really good in-room coffee and tea) left in our room each day.
The en-suite bathroom was a little cramped, but served its purpose. (Bear in mind, these houses are well over 100 years old and never had 'modern conveniences' to begin with, so we were happy enough to have an en-suit.)
Andrew's cooked-to-order breakfasts are becoming legendary - simply the best breakfasts we had during our month-long holiday in the UK. In addition, there was plenty of fresh fruit, fresh juices and lots of health choices.
Andrew was very helpful and knowledgeable of the Cornwall area. In addition to his recommendations, the breakfast room / lounge has a wide selection of guide books, Ordinance Maps and information needed to help make the best of our visit.
All in all, Glencree House represents excellent value for the money and a very pleasant place to stay while visiting the Penzance area. Thank you Andrew & Lynsey for making this a memorable holiday.
