Literally across the road from the station

It is a traditional no frills B&B

Our room was clean and compact.

Could do with a bit of a spruce up as looks a bit tired

Couple that run it were friendly enough and very helpful when we asked to leave our bags prior to catching train home

Limited choice for breakfast but was freshly cooked - the Cornish hogs pudding was very tasty and set us up for the morning

Good base for a night or two

Stayed: February 2018, travelled as a couple

Just back from a lovely stay at Carnson House. From the word go, Rob and Belinda were very friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. I was very lucky with the weather and was able to re-visit many old haunts during my stay. My room was very comfortable and, despite being at the front facing the main road, it was quiet and relaxing. The breakfast was great and set me up for the day ahead. I’ll definitely be back.

Very near to railway and bus station (2 minute walk) with five minute walk to restaurants. and pubs in area Warm greeting with help given with luggage if required. Beds really comfy with tea and coffee and toiletries supplied in room. Breakfast is always well cooked with various choices but we'd recommend the full English. This is the fifth year we've stayed at the b&b and everything has got better and better Belinda and Rob are a lovely couple and will do anything within their power to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Needless to stay we will be staying here again in 2018.

Room Tip: All rooms are comfortable

Carnson House B & B remains our favourite base for exploring West Cornwall. It's central site is so convenient, it's relaxing and the warmth and hospitality of Rob and Belinda have brought us back year after year.
Breakfast is substantial, caters for most needs and offers a wide variety. Our comfortable room was more than adequate for our needs with an en-suite shower / toilet.
Any car parking difficulties can be avoided by simply leaving your car at home. Both the rail and the bus termini are just across the road providing extensive services to all tourist attractions.
My wife and I have consistently enjoyed staying at Carnson House over many years. We recommend it without reservation.

Having arrived off the evening ferry from Scilly we arranged to overnight here before the drive home. Our room at the front was on the small side but was very well appointed, clean and comfortable - the en suite likewise. We had anticipated some disturbance from traffic noise as our room is situated at the front of the building, but in the event Penzance seems to go to bed quite early so we enjoyed a good night's sleep. The breakfast room is bright and cheery and the breakfast - apart from slightly weak coffee - was excellent both in quality and presentation. The owners were pleasant and welcoming and seemed to take pride in setting and maintaining a high standard of service.
