“Excellant stay! great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

Excellant bnb was given a warm welcome. Lovely rooms, very comfortable and spacious with a sea view. Location was good in the centre of penzance was given lots of recommendations for places to visit and restuarants to go to during our visit by the owners. Overall a very enjoyable stay and will be returning.

I had an enjoyable stay at the Duporth and would highly reccomend.
It is located on the seafront and minutes from the town centre and local eateries.
The proprietors were very pleasant and welcoming, and even arranged a table booking at a very popular restaurant whilst there.
The rooms were clean and tidy and the view from my room was breathtaking, overlooking the sea and nearby fishing village of Newlyn, steeped in local history.
I would reccomend this guest house to anyone, whether on business or pleasure, family rooms are also available.
A credit to the area!

I found the Duporth Guest House lovely, had a lovely room with a wonderful sea view, also breakfast in the rooms which allowed us to sleep in, overall very comfortable and relaxing. Steve and Ellen were very welcoming and recommended lots of restaurants and places to visit in and around penzance. We will definitely come again.

Stayed at the Duporth over New Year period, really enjoyed the self catering style breakfast, meant we did not have to get up early for breakfast after our celebrations!! Great sea view from our room, very clean and tasteful decor. Pubs and restaurants all within walking distance, no need to drink and drive!! Will defo book for next New Year's Eve, and hopefully during summer 2012 too.

Room Tip: All sea view rooms on rear of building

Stayed two nights, the third night was up late reading and noticed being bitten by a bug. Caught two more bugs following, confirmed they were bedbugs. We left at 2 am to find bug free accommodation. Manager said he didn't know where they came from and would have them taken care of by experts. It was just too bad because everything else was okay to good.

Average quality rooms (as far as furnishings go they were mismatched and inexpensive, but they worked fine), good location, friendly greeting, provided good recommendations for food and activities in the area (and a map with locations marked upon arrival). Breakfast wasn't anything special (cereal, fruit, yogurt, toast) but since it was in the room, we could sleep in and have it whenever we wanted. Fridge did cycle on throughout the night, so light sleepers wouldn't be happy. Street parking only.

Room Tip: There are some rooms with a sea view (over a tennis court though), but the one we stayed in had bedb...
