I had a lovely stay at Harbour View last week. Fog all week but it did nothing to dampen my spirits. Have stayed at this guest house on loads of previous occasions. Indeed I call it my own private holiday home nowadays. Joy, the owner, is full of great ideas for excursions and goes the extra mile to suggest local...

Dear Sue D. Wow, thank you so much for your glowing review. I too very much enjoyed your visit at this quieter time of year. It means I can give you more attention than when we are much busier with guests. You amaze me how you get around by bus - you were in Redruth(15 miles away) and back before...

Apologies for the delay in writing this review! We had a wonderful holiday in Cornwall not least because of the Guest House we stayed at in Newlyn. Newlyn is a pretty but working fishing village away from the bustle of Penzance but close enough to walk or drive in. It is a great base for exploring the whole of Cornwall....

My husband, self and three teenage daughters had a fabulous week long stay at Harbour View. It was amazingly good value for money. The views were breathtaking and the location was perfect for exploration. We enjoyed visits to Sennen Cove, Mousehole, Lands End, Penzance, St Ives, Minack Theatre and Treen beach. We all greedily tucked into a full English every...

All the rooms have harbour views in this guest house in up and coming Newlyn, which feels a lot more like a community than its Penzance neighbour. The breakfast array is bounteous with every cereal you could wish for, and a good cooked option (catering for me as a vegetarian too, which is lovely but doesn't always happens everywhere I...

The hosts are very kind and experienced. They are ready to help at all times. The location is right in front of the harbour. The accommodation is very clean and comfy. The bay window view is spectacular. The double room was just the right size for a couple. Having the wc outside of the room was not a problem at...

Terrific view of the harbour, comfortable room, tea and coffee making facilities, wifi, TV, good breakfasts, including good coffee. Sensible prices. Parking can be difficult, make sure you take advantage of the £6.50 deal (which gets you into a much more expensive carpark). If you like fish, make sure you buy enough for your freezer from Trelawney's, just down the...

Hello - thank you writing us a review in such glowing terms - you wrote how it is, I feel. Yes, it is very much a harbour environment, very Cornish and down to earth. The car park deal is good - long may it continue - largely due to the new Harbour staff, probably. Kind regards Joy

A friend of mine recommended this place as one of the best B&Bs she stayed in during her holidays in Cornwall. If you are looking for luxury accomodation with all the trimmings, the Harbour View Guest House is not the right place for you. But if you prefer a rather modest but nice and cosy place, then you will love...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Newlyn harbourside Guest House has stunning views from all front double rooms across the harbour and Mounts Bay - situated between Penzance and Mousehole in SW Cornwall - 10 miles from St Ives and Lands End. There is a warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere with free tea/coffee, and free wifi. We are the only B&B in Newlyn which has direct 180 degree views across the bay, and we are the cheapest. Free Breakfast is served in the dining room overlooking the harbour. All rooms refurbished this year. We have 3 double rooms, overlooking the harbour, with CH, wifi, digital tv, tea/coffee tray, hairdryer, alarm clock radio, toiletries and private or ensuite facilities. Suite 3, sleeping 4, has a double bedded ensuite room overlooking the harbour, a sunny rear twin room, and adjoining that a private bathroom. It can also be booked as a triple or a twin. Suite 3a (the front double ensuite) can also be booked as a double or single occupancy. Suite 3b (the rear twin) can be booked as a twin or single occupancy. There are plenty of pubs serving food (the nearest being 4 doors' away) and 3 restaurants. Our local village is 300 yards down the hill with a variety of shops, a fish and chip shop serving freshly caught fish, and a cinema. We are on the coastpath, cycle route 3, a main bus route and have coastal walking in both directions. Buses can be caught in the village to Land's End, Sennen Cove, Porthcurno beach and The Minack Theatre. ... more   less
