“Pat & Bob !”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

We stayed with friends in early May, our friends had stayed here before and highly recommended it. They were right to - Pat & Bob are amazing hosts with a natural ability to make you feel immediately welcome. Bob is very entertaining and kept us amused during our stay. The rooms are clean and comfy with lots of tea and coffee (and biscuits!). We would not hesitate in returning or recommending Halcyon at all !

We've just got home from a perfect short break in Penzance, and I can't wait to write my review, as we chose Halcyon based upon tripadvisor reviews. Thanks everyone for not keeping this gem to yourselves! Pat and Bob were perfect hosts, so welcoming, helpful and friendly. Nobody does it better! We found the location to be ideal for us as we were close to the town, the beach and the heliport, less than 10 mins walk to each. Halcyon was quiet and superbly clean, the breakfasts lavish, the service second to none. A truly exceptional experience.

We stayed here for 3 nights in May. The hosts are very welcoming and helpful, the breakfasts are delicious and the view of St Michael's Mount from the bedroom window was awesome.

There is free parking available, which is great. It's a longish walk into Penzance for shopping or dinner as there are no restaurants or shops nearby, but that helps get rid of the extra calories from the cooked breakfast!

The hosts were fantastic - lots of helpful advice about the best way to get to the places we wanted to see, as well as suggestions of places we hadn't thought about.

The property only has 3 rooms, so you really feel like one of the family. We really loved our few days here, and would certainly recommend it to others.

Incidentally, a great place for dinner is The Turk's Head in Penzance - we ended up eating here on each of the 3 days we were here!!!

Room Tip: The room overlooking Mount's Bay has a superb view

Went to Cornwall for the first time with my best friend. First thought was where to stay? Found this b&b on the Internet and was not disappointed.. It was a pleasure to stay.
Very clean and a warm, friendly atmosphere enhanced the house.
It is very close to the train/bus station, the beach, St Michaels Mount, all within walking distance. Pat and Bob were also very helpful with any information. Mentioned once that we wouldn´t be there for breakfast the next day and were immediately offered a breakfast tray.
Would recommend any time.
I don´t think any other b&b can top!
Thank-you for a wonderful break.

The Guest House is situated within close proximity to Lands End, Mousehole, Marazion etc and is a stones throw away from St Michaels Mount - The owners Bob and Pat are lovely people, warm and welcoming with great personalities. We were so impressed with the accommodation - clean, tidy, and really comfortable. not to mention the good breakfast! fab views of the sea and the Mount - We would certainly recommend this Guest House - Parking Available and FREE.....

Room Tip: Just book you wont be disappointed
