“Blue Seas certainly lived up to the positive reviews”
Reviewed 17 November 2010

We chose this B&B via the web to spend 2 nights here on our first ever visit to Penzance. The welcome from Arnaud on our arrival was friendly and very helpful - he gave us good advice on our options for that afternoon and the following day. The room was comfortable, well decorated and spotlessly clean and we had a good view of the sea. Homemade biscuits and local fudge were a bonus on the tea tray.
Breakfast was excellent - an extensive cooked menu as well as fresh fruit, cereals and croissants. I would especially recommend the poached egg and field mushroom - delicious! Both Arnaud and Fiona create a relaxed ambiance - and it was no surprise to find that fellow guests were regular visitors.

Friendly welcome. Nice room with en suite shower room, complete with locally made soaps and toiletries (PURE nuff stuff, Penzance). Superb tea/coffee/hot chocolate tray in room with home-made cookies, prettily presented with a ribbon, and a bag of fudge made in the Scilly Isles. Lovely touches. Breakfast couldn't be faulted. We couldn't eat any lunch!

We stayed there in the beginning of September. The Blue Seas Guest is located in a nice quiet side street where a number of B&Bs are lined up; views are very good. Fiona and Arnaud are extremely welcoming, Arnaud's restaurant recommendations are spot on and he gave us excellent advise where to go for our anniversary.
Breakfast is just fantastic; you can choose from a wide range, much beyond what is usually offered; qualtiy and taste are outstanding, French influence at its best.

Rooms are very modern, freshly decorated and it top condition.

I can only subscribe to what other guests have written before; don't bother looking for somehting else in Penzance unless the Blue Seas is fully booked.

I fully agree with the other reviews. The Blue Seas is very hard to fault. Location and private parking, rooms, furnishings, breakfasts, friendliness and the hosts Fiona and Arnaud - superb.
Breakfast menu is notable for its variety and quality - it is not often you find kedgeree or eggs benedict in any UK hotel, let alone a small one like the Blue Seas.

Arnaud and Fiona have created an absolute gem, now we have discovered Blue Seas we cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Penzance...they have set the bar high! Everything has been catered for without any over the top frillies, unecessary ephemera or towels on the bed instead of in the bathroom. The breakfast choice is excellent, all tastes are satisfied, no need for lunch after feasting here! Our short stay was a delight and one we hope to repeat. Thank you Arnaud and Fiona for creating a haven within Penzance.

I stayed here for 4 nights as a solo traveller in July whilst on a group walking holiday. This guest house was perfect from location, to cleanliness, to the ginger fudge put out in the rooms! Breakfast was amazing and Fiona made me a great packed lunch for both days that I hiked. I left a beach towel in one of the rooms which she posted back to me. Yes I would definitely stay there again.
