“Penwinnick House B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

We are walking the South West coastal Path so picked Penwinnick B&B because of its closeness to Charlestown. The accommodation was excellent in good decorative order and excellent condition. The cooked breakfast was freshly cooked to order and well presented. The owner was welcoming and friendly. No complaints and would recommend it to anyone.

Very friendly and not obtrusive.
Excellent breakfast in a very pleasant setting. Rooms nice and clean with a very relaxing lounge.
Only minor criticism bed not really big enough for two people, but would happily go back again.

We enjoyed staying at the Penwinnick House especially because of its friendly owners and the excellent breakfast in the conservatory. Our room was big enough for two and clean, only the bed could have been a bit bigger.

Stayed for 1 night a lady travelling on her own & was thoroughly looked after & greeted by Tim, a perfect host. Single room was more than adequate, spotlessly clean, comfy, all the facilities one would want. Breakfast was super the full Cornish I can thoroughly recommend it, I cleared my plate! Sets you up for the day, breakfast lady helper very helpful & thoughtful. Would go back again if in the area.

Could not have asked for more and if we had I sure Tim would have tried his best to accommodate. Fantastic breakfast set us up for the days we were there. Could not have been more friendly or helpful. Would highly recommended fora stay in Cornwall

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

After a Spring Bank family Holiday in North Devon, wife & self fulfilled a long-standing plan to take in Eden Project & Heligan Gardens with St. Austell most conveniently situated midway between the two just down the coast into Cornwall.. Penwinnick House seemed to tick all the boxes & we were not disappointed with the location. Despite a somewhat late evening arrival, we were greeted most warmly by senior management & shown to our ( only available) room. Quickly out & a decent meal in Prezzo next to cinema in town. Soon decided that the house was fine for just a short stay but no longer as limited wardrobe space meant most clothes stayed in suitcases and bathroom a bit of a squeeze but well equipped & most taken ( we didn't) by the bathrobe & slippers, nice touch here. Our room no.1, was facing the busy main A390 & although it was a little way away, the traffic noise throughout created a disturbed nights sleep as a warm evening required an open window as no aircon.. Great breakfast with choices to suit all tastes taken in the conservatory. The in-house St. Austell guide gave plenty of local info particularly that the town centre was a 15 minute walk away but omitted to mention the bus/ rail station was all of that up a steep climb. Can't pass this review by without commenting on our final evening meal which was taken in the Hop & Vine, adjacent Trinity Church which I had spotted on our way to the bus station earlier that day. It attracted me as it looked a 'real pub' & despite the fact that it was a quiet Monday evening, we had the best meal of the holiday chosen by both of us - an absolutely moorish piping hot homemade fish pie washed down with a couple of pints of well-kept 'Tribute' which didn't have to travel too far as the brewery is only just around the corner - guided tours available I understand. Fantastic meal & we needed the walk home. In conclusion, I would say that our stay in Penwinnick House was OK , fine for what we wanted and 3 nights just right, anymore & we would have been frustrated by the small room & traffic noise. Possibly a little overpriced for what was on offer. JW

Room Tip: Negotiate a discount on room no.1. especially in busy holiday season.
