Reviewed 28 March 2012

Very pleasant stay. The room was clean and and had en suite shower. Breakfast was good and there was a nice friendly atmosphere.

Great location for those arriving by train as its adjacent to the station.

The only down side being that there is no view as the hotel looks out on to the side of the station building. If I had taken the trouble to Google map the area beforehand I would have known that.

Don't let that put you off though as its located perfectly for those wanting to explore Penzance on foot.

My wife and I have stayed at the Carnson House Hotel every time we visit West Cornwall and every year for the last four years. We are never disappointed. Rob & Belinda are great hosts, always helpful. Rooms we have used are clean and well maintained. Breakfast is always good. The central situation for access to transport and attractions couldn't be better. I continue to recommend this hotel to friends wanting to visit Penzance and West Cornwall.

Room Tip: Choose an en suite room.

We found them on the internet and were very pleased with our choice. We had a room on the ground floor with an en-suite. The room & bathroom were quite small but had everything you needed in them. Rob & Belinda were very friendly and helped us with information and parking. Breakfast was lovely and the bed & breakfast is in a great location, right across the street from the train station.

After reading some of the reviews we were a bit dubious about going there but i can honestly say our fears were groundless. The room was on the groundfloor with an en-suite. Both were clean and the bed was comfortable. More than one choice for breakfast. All cooked well. Both Rob and Belinda were very friendly and helpful. We would definetly stay there again.

Close to rail station and town, so good access but in every other way a bit of a dump. Grubby room and bedding, shockingly uncomfortable lumpy, saggy bed, old towels and noisy plumbing. Not exactly a cheapo at 65 pounds - think we could have done better. Hosts were friendly enough and breakfast ok.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back, hopefully away from the noisy mainroad.
