Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 June 2014

My wife and I have just returned from a holiday in Cornwall and stayed for seven nights at this fantastic accommodation. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room by Barbara, who was a perfect host, making us feel welcome and special. Our stay exceeded our expectations and it is difficult to find sufficient words to describe the overall stay. The comfort of the room, bed and facilities were great and after a tiring day out ,to relax on the balcony with a cup of coffee with a perfect sea view was bliss. Barbara deserves this praise for all the thought and hard work she puts into making her guests have a great experience, including catering for a special diet.
Many thanks Barbara

We arrived to a very warm welcome from our host Barbara and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were beautifully taken care of and spotlessly clean with very thoughtful touches around the
place. The breakfast selection was excellent and catered for every taste, we highly recommend The Penellen Hotel and would not hesitate to go back there. Absolutely 5 star.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a sea view

We were very glad to see the Penellen after a long day's walk along the coast path and had a very warm welcome. The room was furnished affectionately, the bathroom was big and the whole room was very tidy. We had a beautiful view towards the sea and when we asked for a tip concerning dinner, we did not only get a very good recommendation but a lift from the landlord - thank you very much again.
The breakfast room and the breakfast itself were very good and overall it was a short but wonderful stay before walking on. We would surely be back again here.

What can I say?!
We stayed at Penellen for a few days break during the Easter holidays. This hotel is one of the best we have stayed in. The rooms are spotlessly clean and very comfortable with fantastic views over St Ives and Godrevy. Barbara made us very welcome and works very hard to make the accomodation worthy of the 4 stars it has.
Good location for walks and sightseeing in this part of Cornwall. Would highly recommend

Room Tip: Room 1 has beautiful views over St Ives Bay

Spent 4 wonderful nights in a great room with stunning views to wake up to. Facilities are first class and the breakfasts are delightful. We could not have wished for a better place to stay. Would we stay here again - yes, without hesitation. For anyone looking for an ideal place to stay, this is it. Thank you for a perfect time - Kevan and Linda.
