The elmsdale was just a 15 minute walk from train station. It was spotlessly clean and Clare was fantastic host. Breakfast was delicious. We stayed on 2 separate nights whilst doing part of coastal path at the start and the end. And her scones and tea were a much needed treat at the end of our walk

Tips:

Have a visit to jubilee pool lovely way to spend a few hours

Elmsdale is a lovely comfortable guest house. Facilities were very good and the room was very clean. Clare the landlady is very friendly, helpful and efficent. Plus she does an excellent early morning breakfast at 7am which helped us on our way. We would certainly stay at Elmsdale again.

Our trip to Cornwall did not disappoint. Elmsdale and the lovely Clare were fantastic. The guest house is in a perfect location, close to the sea and a great base to visit all the local points of interests and walks. Tea, coffee and biscuits were provided in the room. There was a good range of tasty options for breakfast. We had an amazing stay!

The host was very friendly and helpful with providing tips for places to visit. There was also a very large dejection of freshly cooked breakfast that was excellent. The rooms were very modern, nicely decorated and with comfortable beds. Overall a great experience.

Tips:

Places worth visiting are St Michael’s mount, Kynance Cove, Lizard Point, Land’s End, Falmouth, St Ive’s

Absolutely loved our stay at Elmsdale. We stayed in The Loft Suite... so spacious and comfortable. Scones, jam and cream on arrival is a lovely touch along with tea/coffee and cold water in the room. Room and guest house are immaculately clean. The bed is super comfy and we were made to feel so at home by Clare. The breakfast was delicious... homemade granola a treat each morning of our stay. Brilliant location to explore Penzance by foot and easy to get to other beaches and towns with an easy link up to the A30. Amazing restaurants too.. loved Cornwall. Thank you so much Clare Absolutely loved our stay and we will be back!

Tips:

A trip to Lands End is a must... St Ives is beautiful but busy... Park and ride is very good there and only £2 for the bus. 2 Fore Street in Mousehill for lunch (or super) was delicious. Mackerel Sky Seafood Bar in Newlyn was amazing and worth the queue to wait for a table, highly recommended.

We had a fabulous stay at Elmsdale Guest House. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean with beautiful bed linen and soft white towels. We loved the decor and the cream tea when we arrived was a wonderful surprise and very thoughtful touch. Breakfast was perfect too. Our two night stay really recharged our batteries. Thank you so much for your hospitality Clare.

Tips:

We visited to go on the Penzance Marine Discovery trip as a birthday present which was wonderful. We were very excited to see the common dolphins and also grey seals. Also spent an afternoon at Botallack exploring Cornwall's mining heritage. Had a very enjoyable meal at The Deli in Mousehole.

Lovely stay , very clean super breakfast. Clare was a lovely host who is obliviously passionate about her B&B which comes through in all the little touches like the cream team that awaites you in your room on arrival.

Tips:

Our stay was just 2 days as we had booked the Marine Discovery trip to go Dolphin & Whale watching, I highly recommend the company running it they were very mindful of the wildlife. Newlyn (about a 20 min walk) was pretty. If your looking for sandy beaches you won't get one in Penzance, But there are some lovely restaurants

A very comfortable, stylishly furnished accommodation. The hostess was very nice and served a rich, delicious breakfast in the room every morning. The kitchenette and large refrigerator are also practical. The location is very quiet and still an ideal starting point for exploring Penzance and the surrounding area.

An example of the perfect guest house! The rooms are wonderfully relaxing, beautifully decorated and spotless. Nothing is too much trouble for Clare, even bringing our superb breakfast feast up to the loft room, which is a little apartment in itself. Homemade scones on arrival started our weekend off perfectly, thank you we look forward to visiting again. Thoroughly recommended as great base to explore south Cornwall.

Clare was very warm and welcoming throughout our stay. The cream tea upon arrival was unexpected and highly appreciated. The quality of the breakfast was very good and varied. The room was spacious, well presented and had a very comfortable bed.

Tips:

We would highly recommend the Singing Rooster restaurant (10 minute walk away) and the Pirates Rest chippy - also about 10 minute walk. A 'must' for all visitors is to book a 'wildlife boat trip' with the Mermaid (located next to the swing bridge at the harbour). We saw seals, tuna and dolphins - which was fantastic and the crew of Adrian and Martin was entertaining and informative.

Beautiful guesthouse in perfect location. Bedrooms are spacious, the lofts suite is great if you like more room to spread out. Breakfast is awesome with lots of choice for all foodies/food types. Clare is the perfect host with great recommendations where to go , what to see. Will definitely return to explore more. Lots to do and see all very near by.

Tips:

Good restaurants visited in Penzance were Blacks and Artists Residence in Chapel Street. St Michaels Mount - Marazion - a Must Tolcarne Inn - Newlyn - very good food Rockpool Cafe - Mousehole - the best crab sandwiches!
