After postponing a weekend earlier at Penrose because of illness we have finally spent a memorable weekend in Lostwithiel with Heidi and Chris. The only downer was we didnt stay longer and England lost their first World Cup game. From the moment we arrived everything was taken care of. Our room was comfy, breakfast top notch and our hosts brilliant. With Chris at the Helm you could see that this was a steady ship with a Team who paid attention to detail. We can honestly say it was the best Guest House we have stayed at before and we give credit to Heidi and Chris for Outstanding Service....you made Mandy and I (and the Paps Maggie and Danny) very welcome....thank you we will be returning.

Room Tip: As we had dogs it was convenient having the ground floor accommodation as it was easier taking the dogs out for a wee early mornings and evenings. But all rooms are quality.

This was the most expensive B&B we stayed in on our travels but wow was it worth it. After a couple of rubbish travelodge rooms before our stay and the a horrid hotel in Newquay after our stay, we realised how lovely this was. We had a beautiful room with chairs overlooking a big window with a view - bliss. E bed was comfy, the hosts were helpful, friendly but not in your face and breakfast was excellent. No bad things to say about our stay - we will use this place again if we need somewhere to stay in the area.

Room Tip: Room 3 had a lovely bed and a great view!

Chris and Heidi are excellent hosts. There are a lot of breakfast options, and they have a great system for ordering. They even happened to have soya milk on hand so that I could have it with my coffee. We stayed four nights in the Owl Room, which was quite spacious and had a great view out of the bay window. The Penrose's location is very convenient to town. We walked into town most nights and followed Chris's suggestions for places to eat or have a drink. All were good.

Found this B & B purely by chance in all honesty on latebookings.com but so glad we did. Nothing too much trouble for either Heidi or Chris - mine hosts. We were in Room 2, so comfy, everything you need is available from Shampoo, Hand Cream, Sewing kit, you name it you've got it. Beds lovely and comfortable, plenty of tea and coffee along with specials such as Herbal Tea and Chocolate. Big Bath Towels along with Bath robes to chill out in. Breakfast made to order on a daily basis and again every need catered for. Car parking is well looked after by Chris - we needed to be away early on the first day we stayed and there he was moving vehicles to enable us to get on our way. Big Big thank you to you both for making us so welcome and making it as if we were at home! We will be back!

Room Tip: No 2 is good and we would certainly book this one again if it were available. Check it out on YouTube!

Its two years since we last visited Penrose and it was still as good as we remembered. Very dog friendly (not just dog tolerant), lovely room with many extras and delicious, hearty breakfast. You can't go wrong!
