I needed a room for just one Saturday night in Penzance and Elmsdale were the ONLY guest house / b&b that would accommodate me. I'm now writing this before checking out and I can't recommend this place highly enough. The room and en-suite are tastefully decorated, well maintained, immaculately clean and a very good size. There is a double wardrobe...

We enjoyed a lot staying in this bed and breakfast. Bedrooms are very big and clean and even the bathroom. The bedrooms are complete with television,dvd player,free wifi and coffee and tea maker. The bed and breakfast is located in a quiet area but at the same time not very far from city centre(walking distance) and from St Michael's Mount...

This charming guest house was basically a home from home. The en-suite room I had was really lovely, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. My every need was catered for, from providing me with gluten/wheat free bread and cereal for my breakfast every morning, making sure everything in my room was always in good working order and replenished, to providing me...

We spent three nights in this very nice B&B and we can surely recommend it! Room 3 was nice and spotless and the perfect size for a couple. Among the usual comforts you can find in a B&B, at Elmsdale's they offer you a DVD player in each room with a wide selection of DVDs, a very handy fridge outside...

Really welcoming hosts, great rooms and breakfast. Hosts made sure we had some maps and information on the local area. Very close to the sea front, can't recommend this place enough. Room and bathroom spotless and all you need, including a DVD player with a library of movies available to borrow from!

Booked the Elmsdale for one night as we were travelling on the ferry to the Scilly Isles the next morning. One of the few guest houses we could find in Penzance that would take a one night only booking, as the town was quite busy. The guest house is great value and only a short walk along the sea front...

I booked at Elmsdale at the last minute because of its proximity to David Lay's Auctions. No idea what I would find. I was delighted. A lovingly decorated and upgraded spacious Victorian house with a spacious en suite room. The bed was superbly comfortable and the shower was large with plenty of hot-water. Glenis could not have been more welcoming...

Dick and Glenis are very welcoming hosts, and the B&B is conveniently placed for exploring Penzance or going to the Scilly ferry. The room is comfortable and the bathroom had a super bath - quite a treat in a B&B. Real milk was provided in a small fridge for use in our room. We had two nights, on our way...

Really great welcoming B & B. Great room and owners very helpful, the weather was dreadful and Dick very kindly gave me a lift to the station on my departure which was really helpful. The room was very comfortable, lots of hot water and plenty of choice for breakfast. The B & B is situated in a really good position...

A great little B&B. A short walk from Penzance town centre. Lovely room. The owner was very helpful. Lots of choice at breakfast. Parking available on street and it felt safe to leave the car there. Good location for exploring the rest of south Cornwall. Would stay again when exploring the area.
