Camilla House
Ranked #15 of 82 Penzance B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Top marks to the new owners for providing everything one needs to stay in Penzance in Georgian style. The bed, particularly, (6 foot wide), was most comfortable and every facility is available from quality toiletries to fluffy towels and bathrobes.
The breakfast menu (you decide the evening before) was well cooked and presented with full "cornish", fruit and cheese platter or smoked fish and poached egg on offer as choices. Add to these quality juices, yoghourts, fresh fruit, cereals, nuts, etc to get you started. Excellent fare all round. Congratulations to Fi and Burro on settling in so quickly.

A delightfully comfortable, friendly B& B where every wish and need is catered for with a smile. . Spotlessly clean and tidy, but with a home away from home feel A varied menu for delicious breakfasts , A lovely guest lounge to relax in and outdoor seating to soak up the sun on a balmy Cornwall day.The new owners are creating a very successful property. I would recommend you stay here whenever you visit Penzance

Room Tip: Book in advance to avoid missing out on staying here

Fee and Curro are new owners, and their enthusiasm and passion for hospitality are great! Our five night stay was wonderful...the room was beautifully appointed, extremely quiet and comfortable with ocean breezes (and views) adding to charm. The house is plain outside, but inside eclectically and beautifully decorated in quiet quality. Breakfast made to order and delicious (Curro can cook!). And we very much enjoyed the other guests as well! Penzance an ideal central location to explore Cornwall coast with easy access to hikes and gorgeous scenery, as well as great food (putting the English food reputation of mediocrity to rest). Lovely B&B' lovely hosts, lovely vacation!

Room Tip: Loved the attic level king sized room called St Loy!

My boyfriend and I picked this b&b based on some good reviews and it certainly lived up to our expectations. The rooms were clean, well presented and comfortable and the hosts were extremely welcoming and accommodating. Penzance itself is a lot quieter and has less to offer than many of the local tourist hotspots but this made it the perfect place to stay as the room, including a delicious breakfast, was very reasonably priced and the local attractions were within easy reach. I would thoroughly recommend Camilla House to anyone looking for a luxury b&b at a reasonable price.

I just returned from a 12 day holiday in Cornwall and I could not have stayed at a better B&B for the entire trip that soothed my nerves, provided blissfully quiet sleep, yummy breakfasts (loved the Cornish Blue cheese, locally baked multigrain bread and special Spanish quince jam!!) and the nicest hosts!!. I was totally charmed by new owners Fiona, Curro and their Dalmatian puppy, Lucca. And a grateful special thanks to Curro who was able to reattach the broken handle on my suitcase so I could get back home - it held the entire return journey - bravo! In all the little ways they made my stay delightful and special, I send my thanks.

I highly recommend the Camilla House. The location is superb: It is central not only to Penzance but to all of the routes and destinations I set out to travel all over West Cornwall whether by car, rail or on foot. It is one of a row of classic Georgian homes set back from the famous Penzance Promenade as the gentle hill rises toward St. Mary's Church and it feels secluded, quiet; a calm and elegant oasis. The address - Regent Terrace is an access lane only so no foot or vehicle traffic unless you count the local farmer delivery fresh eggs! Parking is onsite in front. The room was just as pictured and even better the first night I fell into bed and realized how comfortable the bed was, how soft and fresh the linens were .....it felt like home.


And a shout out to Keith from Tucker Car Hire, who went above and beyond to help me fix a flat tire and who ordered me the perfect car for someone driving for the first time on the left side of the road!

Room Tip: I loved the Mullion Room facing St. Mary's Church grounds and listening to the seagulls in the m...
