Rosalie Guest House
Ranked #22 of 82 Penzance B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 August 2013

We had an enjoyable stay at the Rosalie. It's situated 5 minutes walk from Penzance promenade and it's a half mile walk up through the pleasant Penlee Park to the main street of the town.
Our room 6 was at the very top of the house - a relatively small twin room but very comfortable and with en suite.
Breakfasts were good: You serve yourself from a selection of cereals, fresh fruit salad, yogurts, breads for toast etc, while Liz cooks up the traditional English breakfast for you. Guests are asked to use the breakfast room in the evenings if they wish to eat take-away meals (a very reasonable request) and we appreciated the fresh milk that was made available at all times so we could take a jugful to our room for our evening drinks.
Liz is very knowledgeable about the local area and can give plenty of advice on good locations to visit and eating places locally.

(Although we visited in possibly the busiest week of the year we were able to park on the street within 30 yards of the Guest House on our return each evening.)

My parents came to the UK for the first time, so we thought it would be nice to take them to Cornwall, and Penzance is very convenient to go to Land's End and Eden Project.
We stayed at Rosalie Guest House for 3 nights and it has been very lovely!

Rosalie Guest House is within walking distance to the harbour and town centre. It made life so much easier. There are always parking spaces outside of the B&B.

Liz, the owner of B&B is very nice and prepared the rooms very clean and tidy. The booklet provided in each room was so helpful, and the recommendations for restaurants are excellent! It saved us so much time.

The breakfast was excellent as well, and Liz was very patient with my parents who do not speak English at all. So all communications were through me. But she was nevertheless very welcoming!

Will definitely go back!

Room Tip: There are about 7 rooms, and only Room 5 has weak Wifi access (which we stayed in, but you can still...

We spent three nights here in July 2013. It's everything you could need, very clean, newly decorated rooms and bathrooms, excellent breakfasts and the friendliest and most knowledgeable landlady you could wish for. Highly recommended as a great base to stay in such a beautiful area.

This is a great B&B! The room was well kitted out, spacious and clean. Perfect location for exploring Penzance (5-10 min walk to city centre) and the surrounding countryside. The coastline between Sennen Cove, Lands End and Porthcurno is incredible. All spots very easy to get to from the B&B. Staff are fantastic. Liz gave us some great tips and recommended some cool hikes. Rosalie Guest House is good value and the breakfast is delicious!!

I booked a 3 day surprise break in Cornwall for my husband's birthday as he's a huge rugby supporter. Rosalie is in a fantastic location, perfect for our short break and we were made to feel at home straight away with lots of local information supplied by Liz. Also, fabulous breakfast including veggie sausages for me. Will definitely be staying here again next time the blues play away to the pirates :)

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the night. On arrival we were greeted by The landlady's sister who showed us to our room. The room was bright, clean with a very comfortable bed! The landlady was extremely friendly especially at breakfast and we had an enjoyable stay. The only thing I could say to improve would be the shower- unpredictable pressure and temperature. Everything else was wonderful!

We stayed here for one night in February 2013. Our room which was room six had two very comfortable single beds and a very clean en suite shower room. The decoration and bedding were in very good condition. There was also a TV and hairdryer in the room. Tea and Coffee were provided. The room had lovely views looking over greenery towards the centre of Penzance.

The Rosalei is located a very short and pleasant walk from the resort centre including the option to walk down to and along the sea front. The street was very quiet with off street parking should you need to use it. At the end of the road is a pub and the sea front.

We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Liz met us at the door and gave us good tips about how to make the best out of our short stay. Liz is very knowedgeable and was able to recommend local restaurants and advice on getting around.

The room rate includes a full English breakfast along with a choice of cereals, toast, tea and coffee etc. Breakfast is served at the front of the house in a lovely bright room with high ceilings and the original restored victorian windows.

Outside the property are flowers which can be purchased. To show how safe the area is there is an honesty box for people to pay for the flowers in. All in all this was a very homely place to stay and I would recommend to anybody visiting Penzance.

Room Tip: At least one room has private but not en-suite facilities. The private facilities are only next to t...
