Lynn couldn't have been more helpful with getting our room ready for when we arrived, recommending and booking cycle hire for us and being on hand for general queries. Excellent location (although slightly nosey in the morning if you're in one of the front/promenade facing rooms) for exploring southern Cornwall by Bike and car. The breakfast was excellent, having a...

Lynn was very friendly, superb bathroom and very clean room. Our room was looking to the sea (over the road) but it was nice and quiet. Breakfast was nice and well with fresh fruits every morning. Absolutely recommended without any hesitation.

Lynn is simply the best. Excellent accommodation, spacy, modern, yet cosy and very clean. Lovely breakfast made by the very pleasant hostess with fresh fruits, tastefully self-made cereals, cornish breakfast, tea or coffee. While cooking Lynn answer all our questions on the area and guide us in the right direction around Penzance for trips, lovely places, walks etc. and restaurants....

My husband and I stayed here for two nights 14/15th Sept. Warm welcome and a very clean, fresh and airy room. Super shower. Really good breakfast. We stayed in Cubert on the ground floor. We would recommend this to all. We will be back again.

Looking for a stop over in Penzance and found a lovely B&B. The decor was modern, white and very clean. Gorgeous bedroom with a comfortable bed, quilt and pillows. Slept really well. Bathroom was lovely - nice big shower and all the smellies you would need. Struggled to get out of it as so good ! Breakfast was scrumptious catering...

We spent four comfortable nights at Sophia's after a very warm welcome by Lynn. The room and en suite was furnished and fitted in a modern, characterful style with a wonderful view over Mount's Bay. Breakfasts were superb and of high quality, the homemade granola was wonderful. Couldn't wish for anything better within a small and friendly run B +...

Modern but with character, quiet and comfy. Nice location overlooking promenade. Very good breakfast. Overlooking sea front on road but very quiet. Parking in front on road but easy walk from train station. Lovely option for a mini break to deepest Cornwall. Penzance nicer and more interesting than expected as well!

Sophia's B&B (run by Lynn and not Sophia but there is a connection!) is lovely. We were met by friendly Lynn who instantly made us a cup of tea while chatting away to us. Our room on the ground floor was very compact, but we knew this when booking so it did not come as a surprise. It is ideal...
