Alexandra Road
Tel: 07495725244
Holbein House is a grand, end of terrace Victorian house located in one of the most beautiful residential avenues of Penzance. Built in 1886 it has been a guest house for many years until recent times when it fell into disrepair. Brought back to its original splendour with a complete refurbishment in 2016, leaving many of its period features, charm and character. Facing South and being end of terrace, all rooms are incredibly bright and airy with views on the surrounding green areas and tree lined avenues. About ten minutes walk from the centre of Penzance and the promenade makes it an ideal location with easy access to the local ameneties. Penzance itself, is strategicly situated close to all the many atractions Cornwall has to offer.

24th October 2018:

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at Holbein House ,great location easy walking distance to most things. Owners very helpful and enjoyed sitting with the other guests at the breakfast table easy to mix and talk as all at same table.

Tips:

go to St Ives by train as takes all the hassle out of finding a car park especially in the busy season. The walk to Mousehole is very enjoyable and once there lovely little fishing village and bus available back every half an hour if you don't want to do the walk back.

The house is immaculate, beautifully clean in every respect. The bathrooms and showers are sparkling clean and powerful. Beds are extremely comfortable, and rooms are nicely furnished. Breakfast was superb. All the staff were extremely helpful and informative. On our last morning we needed to leave our bags for a few hours and it was no problem. If we are ever in Penzance again, I would not need to think twice about where to stay, we can highly recommend it. Thanks very much.

Visually stunning home with the warmest, most-accommodating staff ever met. Breakfast was a daily feast, and the owner's stories were fascinating. Added bonus was a newly acquired puppy. It was the perfect ending to our trip to the U.K.

Tips:

Weather was a bit rainy, but didn't hold us back too much. Enjoyed Penlee House, a gallery and museum, near by, and St. Ives is an easy trip by train. Holbein House is also in a lovely neighborhood, and a couple of minutes from the harbor.

A lovely bed and breakfast which I will be very happy to stay in again.

Tips:

The Turks Head Pub in Chapel St (the oldest pub in Penzance) provides very good pub grub at reasonable prices. Fraser's fish and chip cafe on Penzance Promenade does very nice fish and chips and is a short walk from Holbein House. The Penlee House Museum and Gallery in Penlee Park, which is also close to Holbein House, houses a stunning collection of Newlyn School paintings and historical displays of Penzance. The sub tropical Morrrab Gardens are worth a visit.

We only stayed a couple of nights, but we enjoyed it immensely. The staff were friendly and efficient, and went out of their way to accommodate us - for instance, we arrived at 10am but were allowed into our room early. Speaking as someone who likes to keep myself to myself, I was pleasantly surprised how much fun it was having breakfast around the large dining room table with the other guests. We'll definitely return.

Tips:

Easy walk to the promenade & coastal path. St Michael’s Mount in one direction & Mousehole in the other. Good local bus service.

L'host è amichevole, educata e sempre disponibile ad aiutarti e darti tutte le informazioni di cui hai bisogno durante il soggiorno. La colazione è stata davvero ricca, di buona qualità e per tutte le esigenze. Lo raccomando di sicuro! Se tornerò in Cornovaglia, prenderò in considerazione di soggiornare nuovamente a Holbein House. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our stay at Holbein House was absolutely amazing!

The room was modern and clean. It had a comfortable big bed and large power shower. It was light and airy with simple and practical furnishings. Roberta was lovely and very accommodating. She made us feel at home at Holbein House. There is a lovely community feel amongst travelers that stay there. Roberta gave us some of her freshly baked apple cake to take with us when we left. We had a very enjoyable stay there and would highly recommend it.

A very nice house, beautifully furnished, helpful hosts. We had forgotten a jacket and they sent it back to us free of charge by priority parcel. A very nice gesture.

Tips:

We'd recommend the Bakehouse restaurant and the Taj Mahal. Going to Land's end and Porthcurno is a must, but do it by bus, hence avoiding to drive on narrow and tortuous roads. Bus station is conveniently at a stone's throw from Holbein house.

We stayed in the superior room which was very nice but the bathroom was very tiny! Breakfast was great but we would have preferred separate tables rather than one long as we found it awkward sitting and eating with people we didn't know. Other than that we had a great stay. Staff were very lovely and helpful about where you could go for the day.

Places to go: St Ives Falmouth (Park and ride is easiest) Mousehole Places to eat Fish and chips from Frasers Lots of lovely places in St Ives to eat

Fantastic stay at this lovely, recently renovated Edwardian property. Great location with 10 min walk into Town and to the front. Ideal location to drive, cycle or catch the train to St Ives, Lands End, St Michael's and Minack Theatre. You will not find a better most helpful or funny host than Roberta. She even mended my car

Tips:

Minack Theatre, take a blanket and jumper and a camera. Go early and go down onto the fantastic cove below before. Then do Lands end after the show and get the sun setting. Catch the train from Penzance to very busy St Ives or drive to Park and Ride (train) Roberta has a tide clock so you can walk across to St Michael's It is a climb to castle so not for those not good on feet. Two quid boat back Walk/cycle 3 miles to Mousehole. Take beach stuf great little beaches in harbour. Get a taxi back cheaper than bus

My bedroom was very well presented and comfortable. The breakfast room was very attractive and the continental breakfast itself was delicious with and a good choice of quality products. Roberta is very welcoming hostess and she and her husband have established a very well decorated and tastefully appointed b&b. I would be very happy to stay there again in the future.

Tips:

Penlee Park and Penlee House Museum are close by. Morrab Gardens and the Promenade are not far away as well. Fraser's Fish and Chip restaurant on the Promenade is reasonably priced and of a good standard. A mile away in Newlyn, very good seafood is available at the Tolcarne Inn and Mackerel Sky restaurants.

A lovely B&B run by a very welcoming host. Roberta will try to accommodate your needs and help you with information of the local area.Lovely Continental breakfast. Holbein House is aprox 20 minutes walk from the Bus/Railway Station.Taxi fare to the B&B from the Station is around £5.

Tips:

Visited St Michael Mount in Marazion.We did so by travelling by bus.Unfortunately the return bus to Penzance was delayed by more than a hour.Bus fare £3.60 return. Visited Newlyn(only about a mile away from the B&B. We had dinner twice at The Dolphin Tavern,Quay Street TR184BD.Lovely food and generous portions.Watch out for the dishes of the day.Highly reconmmended. Unfortunately other restaurants and Pubs in Penzance,close their kitchens at around 14.00,so if you like to eat a late lunch/Dinner you will find them closed.

eveything was perfect: great location if you want to walk or visit the area, house and rooms are very comfortable, quiet place, but what we really enjoyed was meeting Roberta, the owner of that amazing house. Her personal touch and taste made our stay a special part of our holiday in Cornwall

Tips:

we highly recommend the walk from Porthcurno to Land’s End, and the visit of the theatre, too. Don’t miss the seals at Godrevy, there areabout 200 on the beach!

Lovely B and B, a real mixture of old and new. Facilities were just what we needed and it was good value for money. Staff were reall kind and helpful. Breakfast was buffet style, help yourself. We really enjoyed the opportunity to talk to the other guests around on large dining table each morning. Great base from which to explore the south of Cornwall

Tips:

We are at the Cornish barn in Penzance one evening. Great atmosphere, food lovely, staff helpful. 10 min easy walk from the b and b
