If you like the traditional, this is for you. Can't fault the cleanliness and friendliness, but not really to my taste as I like the more modern style and found the decor a bit 'fussy', plus I prefer to chose my own cereal and fruit juice from a buffet at breakfast. Easy to find, with parking, friendly hosts, so no... More

I guess I was expecting something more than a double bed, comfortable but a tad hard for us...nice pillows though! The closet-sized bath (with toilet and shower) was very... More

We arrived in Penzance without any accommodation booked and were so lucky to find this little gem of a place with perfect hosts, free parking and an easy walk to the main shopping and eating area of Penzance. We were able to have a lovely room at the front of the house that was squeaky clean and very comfortable. Th... More

We actually ended up staying in Penzance as a fall back. I had wanted to stay in St Ives but when three B&B's I contacted in St Ives did not even have the courtesy to reply and others seemed to have difficulty with parking or were above our budget, we settled for Halcyon in Penzance. We were really glad we... More
