“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

I stayed here at the end of six days on the South West Coastal Path. it is only a short walk from the path.

The room was big, the bed very comfortable and the shower the best of the week. Breakfast was delicious and the hosts very welcoming. Not sure what else a B&B can be. I would certainly recommend it to anyone visiting Westward Ho!

Penkenna house really is the ultimate in B&Bs i stayed there with my husband and three children in the family room . The room was of a very high standard superbly clean and immaculate. Linda and Graham were the most welcoming of hosts and were fantastic with the children certainly going the extra steps to make our stay with them the best. Linda and grahams breakfast would take some beating with every thing and more you could possibly want. Graham met us at the coach station to help with our cases which was above and behond what we could of expected . All in all simply the best i dont think Penkenna house could be beaten for prices , rooms and certainly not Linda and Graham .Very Highly recommended.

Penkenna House is superb. Linda and Graham are wonderful hosts and went out of their way to ensure an enjoyable stay. Our room was extremely comfortable with lovely views.
Fantastic breakfast, the best ever!
Thoroughly enjoyed the Crean Tea in the garden, thanks Linda!
Will definately return.

excellent facilities, decoration of room very nice, comfortable beds. Bathroom facilities excellent. Food was of a very good standard and large portions. Hosts excellent, friendly and you never feel rushed or that anything is too much trouble. We would return if in the area again.

Where do I start in singing the praises for Penkenna House? The hosts, Linda and Graham were so warm and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for them and on our first morning fter being introduced to our fellow guests we were given a glass of bubbly to celebrate the jubillee which was a lovely surprise! The breakfast was superb, Linda's cooking cannot be faulted and the range of gorgeous fresh fruit on offer was wonderful. The rooms and bathroom are so beautiful and clean. We were nearly out of because the bathroom is not ensuite. DO NOT let this deter you from staying in this magnificent place, I'm so glad we stayed there. It was like being welcomed into a family home.

We will definitley be back next time we are in Westward Ho!

last year i found the Penkenna house bed and breakfast in Westwood ho, we were so impressed we booked for this year as well and have just returned, what can i say yet another fantastic stay in what should be classed as hotel quality, the house is not only immaculate and beautiful, the breakfast is fantastic, and it run by Graham and,Llinda, two of the nicest people 'ive ever met, they are warm and friendly and very welcoming, and a brilliant comedy duo, they are very natural and treat you like long lost friends, we've enjoyed two fabulous long weekends there, I would recommend it to everyone, but when you go tell Linda you would like one of her special cream teas. To Graham and Linda you are fantastic hosts we loved every minute of both our stays, thank you for my birthday breakfast fun it was brilliant

Room Tip: fantastic family room with sea views, fantastic romantic honeymoon room lush with sea view and anoth...
