Terrify House is a wonderful property with outstanding features. Charming host and comfortable accommodation. The staff were very welcoming and all facilities first class. My husband had the best nights sleep ever!

We really enjoyed our stay at Trereife House. The historic features and furnishings of the house and formal gardens were beautiful. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. The room was large and well appointed with fresh linen and coffee/tea set-up. I enjoyed watching the horses in the evening.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for just 1 night. We stayed in one of the apartments which was huge and very nicely decorated. It practically looked brand new. Everything was spotless and the bed was so comfy I wanted to take it home with me. The house and the grounds are amazing and so well kept. The breakfast in the morning was delicious with lots to choose from. However be aware, when booking through booking.com it says the breakfast is included when staying in apartment when it actually isn't. However the owners still allowed us to have the included breakfast as advertised which was very good of them.
The hotel is about a 5 min drive from the centre of Penzance. It only cost us 5/6 pounds in a taxi.
Overall a beautiful place to stay in Penzance and well worth the money, I would defiantly stay here again.

The Belmont is a lovely B&B very clean, very friendly with a guest lounge and use of the dining room with Fridge and microwave. The rooms are quite small but the breakfasts are fabulous with anything anyone would want.

The Belmont is just outside the town up a fairly steep hill but it is a lovely walk to the beaches and town down to the via the cliff path which has amazing views over the ocean. You can of course go down the main road to the town.

Well we arrived off a late evening train from Paddington and a short taxi ride (£5) took us to this lovely old house and gardens . In the dusky light it looked really imposing. We were welcomed and taken to our room which we had been warned had no view - it didn't matter for such a short stay.

The room and furnishings were very new and tasteful and the bathroom also freshly refurbished with some nice bath smellies. The bed was very comfortable and it was shame we had to be up at 5.00am for the Scillonian ferry. I can't believe that the owners were kind enough to be up at that hour and take us to the port. So for service I also have to give this b&b high rating.

In the dawn light the house and gardens good be seen in all their glory. A french parterre garden and masses of rhodedendrons. Stunning!

Really amazing ancient house.
Fascinating surroundings of this typical English manor will impress you much anyway. Horses grazing on the field, apple garden, beautiful plants everywhere.
Room was spacious, vintage, well-decorated and very comfortable.
Wonderful (yet not that cheap) breakfast.

Trereife House has been opened by a private family as a B&B for travelers who would enjoy stepping back into the elegant homes of England's gentry. Our room was clean, and the beds comfortable. The breakfast the following morning was wonderful. The rooms are named for the poets of the English Romantic Period, and I had the honor of staying with my daughter in the Wordsworth Room (a poet I taught and loved for over forty years). One of the current owners ancestors was a close friend of Samuel Taylor Coleridge (for whom another room in the house is named). The surrounding property, especially the symmetrical garden, helps the visitor transcend the few signs of an aging property. The owners were very friendly and willing to share the property's history and significance.
