Found the place OK with the aid of the directions supplied (I'd not have found it otherwise - there are no signs for Pilot's Retreat that I could see). Welcomed with a pot of tea, biscuits and plenty of local knowledge from Scillonian Cath. The room is not large, but is definitely value for money, and makes good use of... More

We booked to stay at Penhallow for nine nights and discovered we couldn't have made a better choice. Cath and Kevin made us so welcome and proved to be a fount of local knowledge that made our holiday so much more interesting and enjoyable.

Initially found Penhallow from a Google search & very glad we did. Location ideal for both Hugh Town & the Old Town. Cath & Kevin were exceptional hosts and the breakfasts were outstanding. Rooms were really well decorated, clean & had everything you needed. The extra little touches made it all a very welcoming stay. Nothing was too much trouble... More

Booked Penhallow to stay for a few days on St Mary's and unsure of what to expect. Cath and Kevin, the owners, met us upon our arrival and were extremely helpful, kind and friendly. About a 15 minute walk from the centre of St Mary's, up a fairly steep hill so be prepared for a good walk, if you don't... More
