Keigwin house is a great base to enjoy and discover all the hidden places of Cornwall. but also, if you want to have some private relaxing time with your partner, you will feel comfortable and well hosted. the breakfast is really amazing, freshly cooked by wonderful host Fran. the interior ist lovely decorated and combines modern vibes with classic styles. definitely a place for a private getaway!

We spent a couple of days in Cornwall, based in Penzance. The B&B was perfect and the owners were very kind and helpful.

I would recommend Keigwin House to anyone.

Thanks for a lovely stay.

Nice stay, parking a bit difficult on the road outside. Had to share breakfast table due to number of people. Overall ok.

Nothing wrong with this B&b. Well placed, a very short stroll from the beach & amenities yet just far enough away to feel completely peaceful. Early check-in and a friendly welcome set the tone. The room was clean and well equipped.

Breakfast very pleasant and most tastes catered for.

I doubt that you could go far wrong staying here and it represents very good value for money.

Keigwin House offers cheap, clean rooms on Alexandria Road in Penzance (where many B&B's are clustered). Roughly 30 minutes hike from the train station, it's actually closer to Newlyn than the main sections of Penzance. This isn't necessarilly a bad thing, as Newlyn is a fantastic town in its own right; much more scenic than Penzance, in my opinion.

The room itself was clean and reasonably large, for a single. Came with an in-room sink and shared bathroom with the B&B's other single. The bedsprings were shot on my mattress, but this is the only complaint I have about Keigwin. Otherwise it was quiet and comfortable.

Breakfast was fantastic - best English breakfast on my vacation.

We stayed for two nights here at the end of a hiking holiday so have experienced a variety of accommodation standards along the way. Whilst this place is clean, at 68 pounds for a double, the mattresses were uncomfortable and decor tired. Our shower curtain was mouldy, making the bathroom smelly, and breakfast totally uninspiring. We also experienced noisy drilling and banging from the house next door on both mornings which didn't help!

Keigwin House is a friendly, family-run quality guesthouse situated on treelined Alexandra Road in Penzance.
