We had a very comfortable stay in Penzance at the Pendennis. Breakfasts made for a good start to the days with Hazel taking care of all the details. We would love to spend another, longer, holiday there!

My husband and I have just stayed here for 7 nights, and as always, couldn't fault it in any way. Russell and Hazel are wonderful hosts, for whom nothing is too much trouble. Our room (Room 4) was clean and comfortable, and our breakfasts were delicious and substantial (including gluten-free bread for me every day). The Pendennis is ideally located...

From the moment you walk into this property you feel at home. The place is spotless and is very well looked after. The owners cant do enough to help you. Rooms are a nice size with no expense spared with the beds and bedding. A really good location for getting out and about while in Penance. I would highly recommend...

Very congenial and helpful hosts. Quiet, spotlessly clean, well decorated and comfortable room. And a full English breakfast to die for. Convenient location on a residential road leading directly to the seafront and town. Highly recommended.

We booked this B & B because we were visiting friends in the area who only have a small cottage. Our first impression was that we had such a lovely personal, genuine welcome from the owner, Hazel. We were taken to our room, number 4. We were delighted. It was a big room with bay windows and a large bed...

Hazel and Russell are the most warm and accommodating hosts you could find. The guest house is immaculate and welcoming. This is the perfect place to stay in this part of the world. You feel like you are almost a local. A short walk, through the park, to the pubs, shops and harbour. Breakfast was amazing every day with no...

Very friendly welcome from Hazel on arrival. Good explanation of the indoors geography and the facilities. Our room was right at the top of the house - spacious and comfortable although the ensuite was quite cramped. The downside was the fact the room was west-facing, with a large window, and as the weather happened to be glorious with blazing sunshine,...

Thank you both for the lovely review. You are correct, the weather was unusually hot when you were with us. There were fans available on the landing for you to use, you should have mentioned how warm you were and we could have told you where to collect one from, it really is too late to mention it at review...

We arrived late for the check-in on the day due to train delay but were still welcomed warmly by the landlady. She was also very helpful with tips for traveling around, i.e. to St Ives and the Scillies. She even ordered taxi for us so we could sit down and enjoy our breakfast and didn't have to rush for the...

My partner and I stayed at the Pendennis for a few nights this week. Hazel and Russell were very friendly and welcoming which makes your stay that little bit more special. The room was immaculate. I liked some of the smaller touches to the room and also it was very airy and modern. Breakfast was lovely. Nicely cooked full English!...
