“another wonderful stay”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

First stayed here over 10 years ago. Loved it then didn't think it could get any better, but with little added touches eg; dressing gown, chocs, biscuits, this b & b is the best in padstow ! Excellent breakfast, rooms spotless and brilliant hosts make penjoly a joy to visit (would not stay anywhere else). Keep up the good work Dave, Garry and Dolly, see you all next year. Thank you Steve and Dawn.

Room Tip: Every room perfect.

As with all our other stays at Penjoly another fantastic stay. Dave and Gary are the best hosts in the B&B industry, helpful, polite and fun to stay with. They treated my elderly mother like royalty, she said it's like 'Home from Home' The Breakfast's are excellent as much or as little as you want... everything to detail. I would recommend Penjoly to anyone.... The Penjoly is the jewel in crown, of any hotel we have stayed in. Will be down again in 2015 ....

Room Tip: No Fitness centre... but hey! who cares???? your on holiday...

my mum and i were late in finding somewhere to stay for the royal cornwall show, by pure luck penjoly had 1 room available. As it was last minute we didnt know what to expect so we read each review, i found it hard to believe that a place could be as good as they were saying but oh wow....it met all of our expectations and more!! you have to go there to truely appreciate it. The hosts david and Gary were amazing in every way, polite kind and fun to be around. Everywhere was immaculate.. the cleanest ive ever stayed in. Yes its true, the rooms are filled with goodies we even had our favourite ''peanut brittle'' sweets! Our rooms were thouroughly cleaned each day with fresh towels given. The rooms are superb, so homely and every little possible detail was added to make you feel at home. After staying here i wouldnt consider staying anywhere else in the surrounding areas. We are very well travelled, throughout the uk and worldwide and never have we had such an amazing experience that we will remember. Without doubt we will be returning and we have told our family and friends to pay a visit too. the food i would give 11/10 better than any hotel and the service impecable. so if you are looking for somewhere to stay look no further you will not find better.
thankyou david and gary for a really wonderful mini holiday
look forward to seeing you soon

Stayed a few days at Penjoly Guest house again.
What can I say ,excellent room ,gorgeous breakfast , and so much of it .
Gary and Dave are always going the extra mile with everything.
Just like being at home, anything and everything was there and every last detail has been thought of.
Both Gary and Dave are so thoughtful and nothing is too much trouble for them.
Thank you both for a really excellent stay.
We will be back.
Thank you.

Penjoly is in immaculate condition, not a thing out of place. Rooms, excellent, warm and very comfortable, spotlessly clean.
Excellent breakfast.
Greeted on our arrival with fresh tea/ coffee & homemade cake.
Little things were a standout- shoe kit & sewing kits in our room.
Good wifi, parking & close to St Merryn for excellent pub, The Cornish Arms.

Room Tip: There is no pool or fitness centre, but I cannot get rid of these dots!!

Found this place by chance when surfing the internet, en route to Padstow, and in desperation for a bed for the night! No one answered the phone but I left message and I very quickly received a call back from Dave (one of the owners), saying they had a room available for the two nights that I requested.

Had no idea what to expect, but we were just glad to find somewhere close to Padstow. Yes, you could walk into town if you were feeling energetic, but it although it is very close, it is not really within walking distance. May be ok on the way down, but a bit of an effort on the way back up!

This b & b is absolutely immaculate. Yes, the decor is a little ornate and dated, but it is all in perfect order.The floors are all carpeted, which makes for a cosy feel (and keeps noise to a minimum). The bathroom in our room was superb! Excellent shower and clean enough to eat your food from!

The room was well equipped and there were plenty of treats and nibbles left alongside the tea and coffee, as well as bottled water. There was also a flat screen tv that actually worked properly and you couldn't possibly ask for more.

Breakfast time is a bit tight, being 8-9am, but it is well worth making the effort to get into the dining room to enjoy it. Lovely selection of cereals, fresh fruit, juices and yoghurt, followed by a hot breakfast, cooked to order. Also lots of toast and tea or coffee.


Dave and Gary have paid immense attention to detail at their guesthouse and it has paid off. Plus, they are a very entertaining couple and made us feel very welcome. We really enjoyed chatting with them and we would definitely stay with them again if visiting Padstow in the future.

We can't recommend this b & b highly enough. Don't bother searching any further, you have found the ideal place to stay!

Room Tip: We had the centre room on the right hand side, downstairs. We didn't see any other rooms, but I...
