I stayed two nights with my boyfriend in this B&B and we just loved it. It is about 10-15 minutes walk from the rail and bus stations but it is in front of the sea and it's on the promenade so it's a pleasant walk. This B&B is very close to the city centre and to Newlyn as well, so...

The B&B is located right near the water, all you need to do is step outside and see a beautiful view. It was easy to find and free parking was available right in front of hotel until 9am. We've arrived around 9.30pm on a Sunday and the nice lady who runs this B&B explained where she left a key for...

Stayed at Sophia's bed and breakfast in Penzance for three nights in July. The b&b was tastefully decorated with an amazing view of the sea. Our room on the first floor was spotlessly clean and the bed was super comfy. Lynne the host couldn't do enough to help and her local knowledge helped us make the most out of our...

We stopped at Sophia's before travelling across to the Scillies. The room was lovely, clean, well appointed and beautifully designed. While Lynn doesn't live there, she was very accommodating to help us get to the harbour in time in the morning. The lovely food for breakfast was one of the best I have ever had, well cooked, high quality, local...

Everything was sparkling white, clean & well designed. Great shower & wonderfully fragrant products. Lynn, the owner, gives sound advice & top recommendations for days out & local restaurants; she also cooks a fabulous breakfast! A great B&B, highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stays at Sophia's recently. We had two stays, before and after a trip to the Scilly Isles. The location for this is excellent - within easy walking distance of the railway station when we arrived - and within easy walking distance of the harbour for catching the Scillonian. Lynne was really friendly, we loved getting a...

My partner and I stayed at Sophia's for two nights over a long weekend as part of our wedding anniversary celebrations and we would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. It's situated in a great location with wonderful sea views. We stayed in Mylor which was spacious, and has a very comfortable bed. The lovely ensuite had a superb walk-in shower...

A great B&B with a fabulous and very helpful host. Yes it is small and caters for few people but is as described. Our room, Zelah, was large enough for us and our motorcycle gear and luggage, with a great view and a large en-suite bathroom with an excellent walk in shower. Nicely decorated, very comfy, very clean, excellent views...
