A one night stay wonderful host (Barbara) stunning balcony views Room 1 - small but due to be upgraded as over November lovely shower separate loo within the room, very clean. Breakfast was good only small criticism I’d have liked to have been asked how I wanted my eggs?

Thanks

glad you enjoyed your stay, room 1 is being extended in November, and if you had asked I would have done your eggs to your liking. best regards barbara

Great view of the sea and beach from our room, spotlessly clean and the breakfast was outstanding and freshly cooked to order with top quality ingredients. What also makes this hotel special is Barbara and Paul who genuinely care and genuinely happy to chat and nothing is too much trouble for them. We will definitely be back. Great place to base yourself for St. Ives area away from the hustle and bustle

A very welcome stop on the South West Coast Path. We arrived after a day of driving rain, and dripped all over the floor, but the owners couldn't have been more welcoming - a cup of tea on arrival, then shown to our fabulous comfortable room with wonderful balcony views. A great breakfast set us up brilliantly for the next leg of the walk (thankfully in much better weather).

Hello Catie.
So glad you enjoyed your room everlooking the sea and hope that the walk to St Ives was alittle bit drier than the walk from Portreath.
Hop the rest of your holiday went well and look forward to seeing you again.

My partner and I had a lovely time here, so nice to walk out and straight down to the beach. The weather was great while we were there so we could't have asked for a better location! Barbara & Paul are so helpful and thoughtful, you wont find better hosts - they honestly couldn't do enough for all the guests! The view from our room was great and it was so nice to have a balcony overlooking the sea but there were also some great outside spaces to watch the sun set, have a drink and relax. Breakfast was great, had a full english then pre ordered the salmon for the 2nd morning (would definitely recommend it, so tasty!)
Would recommend to anyone, we will definitely be back!! (just to visit Georgie if nothing else, such a sweety!) - Thank you both!

There isn't much that this beautiful B&B doesn't have. This was my first visit to Cornwall with my partner and the pictures on the website looked great which is what made us book and upon check in we were not disappointed!

Penellen has nice private feel about it, heaps of private parking and has absolutely incredible views as it's pretty much on the beach with gorgeous crystal blue water and white sand!

We stayed in room three for 3 nights and were really impressed it was spotless, awesome views, huge bathroom with a large powerful shower and a comfortable bed which was always perfectly made for us for when we got back every afternoon which was just lovely.

Breakfast was always spot on and always plenty on offer and flexible choices in the menu! Barbara was always so attentive, you couldn't ask for better hosts.

Penellen also had some lovely outside space which we enjoyed one evening with a bottle of champagne while watching the sun set, it was magical.

We'd highly recommend a visit here and we can't wait to go back ourselves!
