“Great stay!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Stayed for a night with friends. The guest house is very cute, pretty and nicely decorated. The owners are super friendly. Great breakfast as well. The rooms are on the small side, but it's fine. All rooms are named based on towns in Cornwall, which is a nice touch. Shower worked a charm. The only downside (which is the only reason why the overall rating is "very good" instead of "excellent") is that there is no wifi available.

Thank you for your positive comments about your recent visit to Treventon. It was great to have you all stay and enjoy your time with us. The previous review also mentioned an issue with wifi, we have now found that there was an intermittent problem that we were not aware of. We have now replaced the booster and resolved the issue thanks to our recent reviews.
Kind regards

My husband and I usually just pack a bag and trip down to Cornwall with no B&B booked, We have done that since 2005. I have to say that in all the B&B's we have rolled up to even in London! Treventon was one of the best. Lovely clean spacious room. That had just been renovated was nice, no pokey shower room. Bed was so comfy we could of stayed asleep in longer but if we had of done that, then we would of missed out on a nice full English breakfast not a drop or spill of grease on my plate which I have had in the past in other places. I would recommend Treventon to any one wishing to stay in Penzance. Unfortunately with the sea side comes seagulls, one had messed up our bedroom window badly. By the time we got back to the B&B the windows had been cleaned. So to summarise. Great place! Good food! Thank you Treventon for our more than pleasant stay!!!

We stayed here 18 months ago and never got round to writing the reivew. Better late than never! It was a beautiful guest house. Tastefully decorated, comfortable, good breakfast menu and delicious, very accommodating owners who were friendly and helpful but not overly intrusive. Perfect as a stop over on the way to the Scillies and very pleasant as a place to stay in its own right too. Perfectly priced too.

I stayed here for one night en route to the Isles of Scilly. I usually hate staying in single rooms, but decided to give Newlyn room a go, after reading a review on here. It was lovely! Comfy bed, good facilities and a thoughtfully laid out room which didn't seem cramped. The house itself is beautiful - full of lovely period features, and with attractive interior design. Breakfast was really nice - fresh fruit available and good choice of cooked options. My only slight criticism is that the shower wasn't very powerful but it's a massive house so I imagine that's hard to get right! I've stayed in Penzance several times. The B&Bs on Regent Terrace always get a good rating, but I think this place is better.

We were really impressed. Stayed as a family, hadn't booked in advance but we're escaping another place in Penznce that turned out to be dreadful. Lovely welcome, stylish and spotlessly clean room and bathroom. Room had everything you could need including tea, coffee, biscuits and hot chocolate for kids. Breakfast was superb, especially liked the fruit salad of fresh fruit but also big choice of cooked breakfasts. Really high quality experience and good value for money. We will be back.

Room Tip: We had family room upstairs, good size for four of us.

We returned for another visit at Treventon and it has just got better. It was perfect the first time and Stephen and Diane have have made a fantastic job of refurbishing the house and still continue to make improvements. The breakfast was an highlight of our holiday not just an after thought like some places. It is lovely to stop at a place where the owners really make you feel at home (wish it was) and we certainly will choose to stop here again.

We booked in at the last minute after our flight back from the Scillies was cancelled. The only room remaining was a standard double which concerned us a bit, but in fact it was fine and the bed perfectly comfortable.
Breakfast the following morning was of a very high standard and all for a very reasonable price.
We would definitely use the Treventon again.
