Chiverton Guest House B&B
Ranked #24 of 82 Penzance B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 October 2009

I stayed here for 2 nights with my mother in a twin room with an ensuite. The room was a good size with a double & single bed. The ensuite was quite small, but modern & very clean with an excellent shower. The house has been renovated throughout & has none of the 'chintz' of many UK B&Bs. It is in a good location for the town (about 10 minutes walk) & excellent for the beach (2 minutes walk). The host was really friendly & helpful, telling us about a short-cut for walking into town & recommending restaurants to eat at. There is no off-street parking, but plenty of unrestricted on-street parking. Breakfast was great, although there was no soy milk (even though I had requested a vegan breakfast), which meant no cereal.

We had a lovely few days at Chiverton House. The room (No. 1 - downstairs) was perfect. All decor was modern and clean, our bed was remade every day and the shower was good. The cooked breakfasts are great. A selection sheet for your cooked breakfast is left for you to fill in each evening but there is also toast, cereal, fruit and yoghurt.

The B&B is located about a 10 minute walk from Penzance town centre which has a good selection of pubs and restaurants. It is also very close to the coast road with bus routes and Penzance has a train station. Alan has plenty of information on the local area and thankfully stopped us having a wasted trip to St Michael's Mount as it is closed on Saturdays.

Alan and Sally were always cheerful and helpful with any question and a special request for synthetic bedding (I have a feather allergy) was no problem.

I think the previous review complaining about small bedrooms and bathrooms should be ignored. We found the room size to be fine, after all, you are mostly only in it to sleep/shower etc. It is a historic victorian terrace in a town, not a sprawling country manor.

I would thoroughly recommend Chiverton House and we would be very pleased to return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay at Chiverton House. We received a warm welcome from Alan who was helpful and friendly without being pushy. The room whilst on the small side offered exceptional value for money and was the cleanest we ever stayed in which is something I value above all. The breakfasts were delicious - good choice - I especially like the fresh strawberries with yoghurt. The cooked breakfasts were beautifully cooked and generous in size. There is on the road parking outside and is situated within easy walking distance of the shops and many delightful pubs. Highly recommended!!!

We have stayed in many B&B's in Cornwall, and we can truly say this was the most pleasant.
The location is superb, with easy assess to the town and other attractions.
The owners are extremely welcoming.
Our room was modern and clean with comfortable beds. Our breakfast was a delight.
I would recommend Penzance and this B&B to everyone.
