What a view from the room, it's stunning. We were greeted warmly by Barbara who ran through room info and the honestly box for the drinks in the lobby. The room wad spotlessly clean. The bathroom well designed with plenty of space. Other than a pub down the road there's not alot of eating places nearby without driving or getting a taxi but we knew that so had planned where to eat. Hayle is a comfortable walk away where are a few pubs to eat. Loved the fact that you can buy something to drink from the lobby. There was plenty of choice for breakfast which was lovely you ordered it the night before. We will definitely be staying again when visit the area. Couldn't fault anything, a great stay.

This is the most amazing B&B I have ever stayed in, could not fault it in any way. Went for my partners birthday and we were lucky enough to have the most beautiful weather and spent an afternoon sunbathing in the garden with wonderful sea views and in the evening we sat in the conservatory and watched the sun go down. A short walk takes you down to the amazing beach or along the coast path to the local pub. The hosts are so lovely and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was excellent quality local produce and really delicious. Our room was large and comfortable and spotlessly clean with views to die for over the beach and towards Carbis Bay and St. Ives. Such a beautiful place to switch off and relax for a few days. We will definitely be back next year.

We stayed for one night Sunday 10th October. We were greeted by the host Barbara, she put us at ease & explained everything like to indicate breakfast choice on a sheet & leave in the hall. We were happy to complete as makes breakfast quicker than deciding in the morning. We ordered the fruit cocktail which was lovely fresh fruit including strawberries & raspberries we then had a full breakfast table service. Just like to say the room & Hotel was spotlessly clean. The bedroom had a balcony with chairs & a table we sat with our cuppa overlooking the beach & the sunset & sunrise from the balcony was fantastic. The kettle was fast we had tea bags & coffee with fresh milk in the fridge. We saw a fantastic sunset & sunrise from the balcony. There is nothing negative we can say about our stay at Penellen & Barbara was a lovely host & clearly works hard to make this hotel what it is. A few photos to show the balcony, views & fruit for breakfast.

This little is situated right on the cliff next to Hayle beach. Our room was clinically clean with a comfortable bed and a stunning seaside view. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. There is a lovely garden/ patio area where you can relax with a drink or a book and admire a beautiful sea view. You can see Carbis Bay and St. Ives Bay from the lovely garden. The breakfast had plenty of options which you choose the day before. This place is better than a lot of hotels where we stayed before in Devon and Cornwall.

The Penellen Bed and Breakfast was everything we were hoping for and more! The location is absolutely perfect, just a short walk to the beach, the view of the beach from the B&B is stunning, and the hosts are so friendly, welcoming and attentive! They made the effort to speak to my partner and I about our plans and recommended some great restaurants! La Casita in Carbis Bay was our favourite! The room was spacious and comfy, again with a great view of the beach! My partner and I loved that there was a mini bar in the hotel meaning we could grab a snack and a drink at the end of the day and sit in the beautiful garden and watch the sunset over the beach! The breakfast was plentiful, such a great choice, and we were both more than full ready to start our day each morning. Thank you for having us and we hope to be back one day!
