Reviewed 16 November 2012 via mobile

We decided to go on a last minute trip to Cornwall and after having a look on tripadvisor booked the Penrose Guest house for the Saturday night. Marc & Anne have us a warm welcome, shared a local map and gave us advice in where to go and what to see and made sure we were settled. The room we had was lovely. In the morning we had the most fabulous breakfast, including a proper vegetarian version for me! Will definitely visit again when I'm in the area!

My girlfriend and I stayed for five nights in the very comfortable Penrose Guest House.

The room was comfortable, and everything was very clean.

The breakfast was hearty and tasty.

Mark and Anne were perfectly professional, and this made a good base for our holiday in Cornwall.

We visited Penzance for a long weekend and stayed at the Penrose Guest House.

The guest house is in a very convenient location less than 5 minutes walk from Penzance train station. The owners Marc and Anne were very friendly and we were quickly shown to our room which was nicely decorated and clean. The bathroom and toilet were across the corridor from our room, but were for our use only. Everything was spotlessly clean and the shower room was very spacious.

Breakfast was provided which consisted of cereal, fruit, juice, tea or coffee and a choice of cooked items including a full English. The food was delicious and kept us going till lunch.

We thought the price was very reasonable and will definitely consider booking again when we next return to Penzance.

We stayed from the 28 until the 30 of July this year. Upon first arrival we was was greeted by Anne,with a very warm and welcoming reception, very professional, thank you Anne!
This was very nice and you could tell from the off set you was going to enjoy our stay here. Mark too greeted ourselves on reception, agiain very professional attitude and a welcoming feel, they both explained breakfast times, lay out etc.
And the breakfast the full English, it's one of the best we have ever tasted, Mark makes a vey nice breakfast, any thing really from an all English to salmon and scrambled eggs etc.
Again,an all very clean acommotion, no issues. Let's face facts all other neg feed backs left, If you want a five star hotel, go and stay in the Hyat, this accomotion that Anne and Mark have they work very hard to keep in this condition, and to serve there customers to a level you will not be disopointed with, thank you Anne, and thank you Mark, 10/10 Jamie, Beth, Alex.
