Lands End is 9 miles away and the Lizard point is only a short drive also.

Light, Friendly And Modern
The Glen Afton is a well modernized house in a wealth quarter of Penzance. Our host was helpful and friendly, the room was light and big with modern furniture. I can really recommend the Glen Afton. Small minus: our room was under the roof and therefore the water supply was a little bit arbitrary (pressure).

Perfect In Every Way
The owners at Glen Afton were welcoming, helpful, kind and considerate during our stay. The room was stunning and everything felt brand new. Location was fab - a short walk to town and close to big attractions.

My friend was pregnant so it was super convenient to not have time restrictions on the room so we could come and go as we pleased and pop back if she needed a rest.

We have already told everyone it is a must visit, and as Penzance is a personal favourite of mine; I will certainly be back to stay at The Glen Afton.

Thank you again for the hospitality. Jayne & Lisa

Home Away From Home!
We (me and two friends) stayed in the family room of Glen Afton, overlooking a tranquil, tree lined avenue in Penzance. When you walk in you will find a bright, clean and cosy home welcoming you in. The room was comfortable and spacious and beautifully decorated. The breakfast is delicious and plentiful - my only gripe, I missed someone cooking me a Cornish breakfast when I got home! I would heartily recommend Glen Afton to anyone visiting Cornwall. The scenery is lovely, the people are lovely and so is the Glen Afton.

Great Base For Discovering Cornwall.
Keith the proprietor could not have been more helpful and welcoming. The room was small but suited me fine. The ensuite shower room was spotless and the shower phenomenal, I could have stayed in it all day. Breakfasts were more than enough with endless tea/coffee available. Everything worked and free WIFI.

Some of the fixtures and fittings in the room could do with a light dusting/cleaning. One or two marks/stains on the mirror, around the skylight and on the table used for the kettle etc...But very minor moans aside a top notch B&B.

Wonderful Place!
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!
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 fuelled our days perfectly. What more could you ask for!

Tasteful Stylish Victorian Home With Perfect Breakfastmusic
+ 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.

Lovely Place To Discover Cornwall
The house is set in a quiet neighbourhood but very close to the city centre and promenade.

The rooms are furnished with love and free car parking is available just in front of the house.

Keith is a very outgoing and friendly host. We really appreciated the chat and the melons in the morning ;-)

Fantastic B&b
6 of us stayed with Keith for 2 nights at the Glen Afton, as we were on a fishing break.

The B&B is located in a nice neighbourhood, just a short stroll from both the town centre and the front. parking is readily available on the main road outside.

The rooms are finished to a high quality, and are nice and airy. The bathrooms look like new inside.

Towels, shower gel, and brewing facilities are all provided.

We got a good breakfast each morning consisting of orange juice, tea & coffee, a range of cereals, fruit, a cooked breakfast and plenty of toast. Perfect to set you up for the day ahead.

Will definitely be staying here again in the future

Glen Afton B&b Penzance
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.

St Michaels Mount - Cornwall - Landmark

Distance 3.14 miles (5.02 km)
This iconic island rises gracefully to the church and castle at its summit. Accessible on foot at low tide across a causeway, at other times it is reached by a short evocative boat trip. The oldest surviving buildings date from the 12th century, when a Benedictine priory was founded here. Following the English Civil War, the island was acquired by the St Aubyn family, who still live in the castle. In the intervening years many additions and alterations were made to convert it for use as a mansion house. Fascinating rooms from different eras include the mid-18th-century Gothick-style Blue Drawing Room.
