Positive Reviews

Good quality: not a bum deal.

The place is run in a very friendly and efficient fashion. Little plusses are appreciated. That little box of much appreciated tissues; something you don't always find. And superior quality toilet paper that, seemingly, very few other establishments supply at all.

Continental ... and hot!

Don't get too disappointed by the prospect of a continental breakfast. There's plenty of it, lots of choice and they'll also prepare eggs of your choice to order. They are a dab hand too at catering for any dietary requirements so … just ask!

No Penzance pirates here.

The service here is very friendly and efficient and it's an easy walk to the sea and to the town centre. Elsewhere, the shower pressure can be an issue, but not here. The shower is consistent and super hot. Many other aspects are equally impressive. All in all, Westbourne House offers excellent quality and value - and something you'd be happy to return to.

Negative Reviews

Missing the point.

There are very few power points in the room, so you can't charge your mobile ... whilst the B+B proprietor pays for the power. Hmm!

Small bathrooms.

En-suites are tiny 'add-ons' with no storage or towel hanging facilities.

Close to the town centre? No way

Hmm! It's actually quite a hike. It's not all doom and gloom, though. There are nice pubs and eating places just round the corner. Try the Alverne and Bay Restaurants, Thai Moon, Mackerel Sky and The Bakehouse ... with succulent Thai monkfish starter! Popular pubs include the Alexandra Inn, Sir Humphry Davy and The White Lion … so, there's plenty of choice.
