To discovering Cornwall- Rating 5/5

Happy to hear from you. For some time I wanted to visit Cornwall and it was a journey of discovery, we walked a lot to see the suggestive places and the nature and nothing has disappointed us, only wonders! Even Fowey and Polperro. We will come back, I hope so. Only regret is not to speak English well to chat .... but I will improve, my daughter will help me! Thanks again for everything. We have been really welcomed by you! I have recommended your guest house to my daughter too. A warm greeting!

After tripping around Devon &Cornwall, Glen Afton was definitely the best b&b we stayed in. And the others were very good too, but GA had an eye for details to make rooms a home away from home.Clean and comfortable, modern bathroom facilities and a small sofa and lounge chair in the bay window made this a place to relax and look forward to coming back to at the end of each day.The bed was comfortable, the location quiet at night, and only 5min from the ocean waterfront.Good breakfast and personable attention from the owners.Highly recommend

This was one of the best B&B's I have ever stayed in. We spent 3 nights here due to a family wedding down in Penzance, and it definitely contributed to us having a lovely time in such a pretty part of England. We booked the triple room at the front of the property as we were travelling with our 4 month old baby girl, and it was a perfect size room and extremely accommodating to our load of 4 suitcases, and a travel cot. Everything was done to a very high detail and standard, and the small home finishes in the room and building were lovely.We all slept very well here, including the baby, who was showered with warm affection from the owners - Keith and Carol. Who I found were lovely and extra friendly.The location is superb for exploring Penzance and the rest of the south west tip of Cornwall.I was truly sad to leave such a lovely B&B, but my waistline was telling me that I had to, after indulging in the superb breakfast every day!Thank you both, and hello from Eira! :-)

Nautical but nice! - Rating 5/5

Wow, what a gorgeous establishment. If this was a house for sale I'd buy it in an instant.Modern, bright and clean, the rooms are compact but hold everything you need for a perfect night, home away from home.We arrived after recent gales and so it was quite cool, however our room (at the back of the property) was very warm, even sleeping with the windows open.I can imagine it being very hot during the height of summer.The ensuite was very modern and extremely clean, with a huge shower cubicle that had both a fixed overhead shower and separate handset, very handy if you're trying to keep your hair dry (although unusually for a B&B, shower caps were also provided!).Breakfast was of a high standard full English fare with toast. Continental was available on request, and although we didn't have it, we noticed a French family tucking into pastries, cheeses and the like. Freshly percolated coffee and tea making facilities were available for self service, along with orange juice, cereals, yogurts and one or two pastries. There is a one hour window for breakfast between 730-830am which appears to be the norm in bed and breakfast establishments in this part of the country.As the title suggests, the B&B is done out in beach colours, pale blues, yellow and lots of white. The white is broken up with an abundance of nautical themed accessories and pictures, and the shelving unit in the entrance hall is shaped like a boat which is a nice touch. It all looks fantastic, the owners must redecorate continually as it was so fresh looking.Glen Afton is situated away from the centre of town and beaches, but well within easy walking distance.We managed to park no problem on arrival on Sunday afternoon, however we struggled slightly on Monday after going out for the morning.We discovered the locally employed use the side streets for parking for work, so once their work days were over we were able to park easily again.Overall, we found this place excellent value for money, the owners were very genuine and friendly, the decor and cleanliness was second to none, the beds were comfortable and the breakfast fuelledour days perfectly.What more could you ask for!

Tasteful stylish Victorian home with perfect breakfastmusic - Rating 4/5

+ Beautiful stylish old Victorian house in quiet street that leeds you to the boulevard. Lovely room in beachlook and with bay window at the front of the three storey building. Breakfast freshly cooked by the owner who’s name is Keith Richards (‘my rock n roll days are over, if they ever started’). PS The name of his wife is (‘Oh’) Carol.Big bonus for the choice of music at breakfast:sixties that go very well with the stay.- When you stay in such a beautiful stylish old Victorian house there’s always the danger that the sound carries. Happily there were only quiet (English) guests during our stay.Tip for the owners:rescedule the timing of breakfast and check-out to a later moment. During our stay breakfast 07.30-08.30 and check-out:10 o’clock, even on sundays.

Perfect place to stay on holiday - Rating 5/5

Penzance is a little town with great landscape arround it. The gorgeous Glen Afton has clean and beautiful furnished rooms with really comfortable bathrooms. The service especially for breakfast (you can choose between traditional english breakfast and continental, both of them are delicious and nice arranged) is very friendly &attentive. We liked the Glen Afton and Cornwall so much that we´ll come back again for sure :)

The stay was very comfortable and the owners were very kind and helpful and hospitable.The only downside was the shower was very hot and hard to alter but good breakfast and safe area to stay. We were left biscuits and chocolates in the room everyday and our room was kept lovely and clean.The mattress was too soft for myself but lovely duvets.

The Glen Afton is a nice cosy place to stay. Beds are comfortable and they serve a nice breakfast. Local parking is good and we were able to park outside the hotell every night.It is well situated to get to many lovely places in west Cornwall although Penzance itself leaves a lot to be desired.

Great location with free roadside parking. The room was fresh and modern with good quality teas, coffees, hot chocolate and biscuits on offer. The breakfast in the morning was exceptional and included fresh melon, good quality packeted cereals and a fine cooked breakfast. Keith was a very friendly host with useful advice on the local area. Without his knowledge we would nevr have found a parking space in St Ives, for instance. An ideal base to explore all that Cornwall has to offer.

This guest house is one of the best guest houses I have had a pleasure in staying in. The rooms were immaculate! We stayed in the superior triple room and the furnishings were lovely! The owners were lovely and approachable! They left little touches like our towels with a chocolate on, tea and coffee facilities that were replenished every day! The wifi reached us in the room which is always an added bonus! Also the room was cleaned every day too! The breakfast was lovely with a choice of cereals, full breakfast and yogurt or pastries! Its 5 minutes from the town centre so the location is ideal. There is ample parking outside the accommodation. I would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone who wants to visit penzance.Thank you very much for having and looking after us!

The location was ideal to get around west Cornwall, 5 minutes walk from the promenade. Owner was friendly and accommodating. Stayed in the triple room (No. 4) at the front of the house, décor was light and fresh, had a TV and kettle, beds were comfy. En suite bathroom was white and clean, with a good shower, towels were provided. Cooked breakfast was to order, they did a full English or variation to request, continental breakfast was available too. Parking was off road outside the property, spaces were available. Would definitely recommend as somewhere to stay in Penzance.
