A home from home experience

We were in Penzance for a 2 night break. The position and access to local facilities was perfect. Easy parking was available and the guest house was quiet, clean and newly refurbished with excellent en suite facilities. The owner was welcoming and helpful and had lots of good tips to recommend

Had a great short break in Penzance

We stayed at the Rosalie Guest House over the Eatser period. We found it to be perfectly located in the wonderful town of Penzance. The accomodation was comfortable and well presented and the hosts welcoming. We would visit the area again and stay at the Rosalie again. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

“pleasant and peaceful”

ideal location from which to tour the area pleasant and peaceful

“Ideal location, good ensuite rooms and graet breakfast.”

2 night stay whilst birdwatching in Cornwall neat and tidy rooms , good ensuite facilities and a comprehensive breakfast including continental style when we had to leave at 06.30am one morning.

“Friendly welcome!”

2 nights as we started on a 4 day hike along the south west path. Breakfast, friendly welcome, tourist advice, clean room. If the rooms with ensuite were available I would have chose them over the room with bathroom in the hall. The room is very small with limited place for baggage.

Perfect for our purpose and very comfortable”

My sister and I came down to Penzance for a relative’s funeral and had to find a couple of rooms at short notice. Rosalie Guesthouse filled the bill perfectly being very close to our relative’s house. We stayed for two nights. We were particularly happy with the relaxed atmosphere and the owner could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was excellent and catered to all our wishes. The owner also kindly called a taxi for us. The only reason I did not mark the room with a 5 was that, although this particular room was very good for one person, I don’t think it would have been quite big enough for two comfortably.

“I would like to stay again”

At the end of a one-week-walk along the SouthWest Coast path I stayed at Rosalies. It was great friendly host, clean room, wonderful breakfast

good relaxing, 2 night stay at reasonable price”

Very friendly owner, relaxed stay. Great for a short break. V Good breakfast with lots of variety. The room was small, but perfectly adequate for our needs the relaxed atmosphere and friendly welcome. There were not too many rules to restrict what we could or could not do

“Owsome accomidatuon where I’ll return back.”

Like in home. Excellent friendly behaviour from owners

“A gem of a BnB. Very homely, comfortable, clean, with wonderful hospitality.”

Very comfortable. Breakfast was great, good cooked breakfast and a great selection of uncooked breakfast as well (fruit, yogurt, pastry, lots of different spread, crumpets, different bread). We thought it was very nice & thoughtful of Lizzie & Chris to provide us with a kit of cushions and blankets to use for our visit to the Minack open air theater. Excellent & thoughtful hospitality. Lizzie and Chris (the owners) were just lovely. They seem to think of everything you could want, and because of this, we felt very well cared for.

“Pleasant Penzance”

An easy relaxing stay with plenty to do within walking distance or public transport. Lovely weather and very enjoyable surrounds. Close to St Ives, Lands End and St Michaels Mount. Seeing a performance at the Menack Theatre is also a must. Returning to comfortable and relaxing accommodation each evening a real treat.

No there was nothing I did not like

“A 2-night stay while attending a relative’s 90th birthday party.”

We wanted somewhere local to Sennen to stay as we were invited to a relative’s birthday party, and also wanted to make it into a long weekend so we could spend a day or so exploring the area. Penzance was the nearest where accommodation was available, and while there were many B&Bs to choose from here – particularly in Alexandra Road, the Rosalie Guest House looked the most promising and we were not disappointed. Everything was 5 star. The landlady was particularly welcoming and accommodating.We had arrived early in the day before check in time and she allowed us to stay in the house with our luggage until the room was ready.

“Thoroughly enjoyable stay”

Room was comfortable,clean and well appointed. Bathroom was excellent. Stayed two nights, breakfast was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble, and she was very helpful, recommending places to see. It was in a very good position, close to seafront, and also easy to reach A30.

“Cornwall 2013”

An enjoyable short break in Penzance. Good accommodation and friendly hosts.

“Home from home.”

Everything that you could wish for in a guest house. We stayed in the feature room. Friendly atmosphere. Close to restaurants and sea front. Loos a bit noisy.

“Satisfied customer”

Stayed 6 nights in this excellent guest house. Lovely, well-equipped room with very comfortable bed and all spotlessly clean, plus a friendly and helpful landlady who readily provided information on the local area and was available to answer any queries we had. Rosalie provided all that we needed and it was a pleasure to return there at the end of days spent walking and exploring.

“Lovely homely guest house”

This is a lovely guest house with an exceptional home from home feeling. We will most definitely be revisiting. We liked the whole experience. The room and the ensuite were great and there was a very friendly atmosphere

“A very warm welcome from the friendly owner.”

A short 3 day Autumn break. Penzance is a perfect location for exploring all areas. Beautiful countryside with rolling hills with St Ives, small coves and beaches all within easy reach by car. Penzance is a great town to explore on foot and Rosalie is perfectly situated to access the town and resturants. Penzance has a fantastic 100 year old cinema – best cinema seats ever!! Rosalie is situated in a very quiet, wide leafy road; plenty of free parking. Very welcoming guest house Well maintained guest house. Double bedroom with ensuite was very comfortable, spotless and well equipped for our short break. Breakfast was piping hot & delicious. Fresh fruit salad everyday!

“Friendly welcome”

All 4 adults enjoyed our one-night stay at Rosalie GH. Parking was not a problem. We received a friw=endly welcome. We appreciated the favailability of a room for our use (drinks, eating a takeaway meal, trivial pursuit game, reading). The guest house is well-maintained.


Very good quality. Everything.

“Slept well, eat well”

The place is is clean and tidy, obviously investment has gone into the place. The room has all we needed. It was comfortable so we slept well. Parking close was easy and free. I particularly liked the cooked breakfast. The location is good and area is good. Liz was very helpful. I liked the breakfast. Being able to sleep well

We stayed at the Rosalie with our 2 teenage boys as part of a multi stop tour of Cornwall. Lovely bright, spotlessly clean family room. Excellent breakfast.Very fast Wifi which is important to our kids!Superb host who made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Will be back!

“It was very nice here!”

Restful and friendly guest house. Very clean and quiet, the perfect place to stay for a relaxing holiday. Friendly atmosphere, very comfortably. Lovely breakfast, friendly service! Easy parking, near to town.

This is a lovely B&B”

We were 4 adults sharing the family room. The B&B is on a pretty street with lots of trees. The room was clean, had nice decor and comfortable beds. The staff were friendly and helpful and we felt really welcome at their B&B.

“Clean,comfortable and friendly guest house.”

Only used the guest house for sleeping as was out and about all weekend, but found it comfortable and friendly. Guest house is conveniently located within easy walking distance of everything Penzance has to offer. Possibly being given a choice as to whether you require breakfast so that you dont pay for something you dont have.

Very comfortable”

Fresh milk and china cups and saucers, plus wooden coathangers, made this a very comfortable place to stay. A warm welcome from Liz, and helpful tips re Penzance.


Relaxing, Pleasant surroundings

“Lovely breakfast, clean and light room, friendly service”

Very pleased with our stay. B&B is easy to find and a warm welcome awaits. Quality of breakfast, friendliness of staff, cleanliness of rooms, location (close to town centre with free parking on street) Shower could do with more oomph, bit of a dribble Would recommend to a friend

“Good for exploring the area.”

Good directions, easy to find. A short walk to the town centre. Penzance is a good base for exploring the area. None Would recommend to a friend.

“Comfortable and friendly”

Our room was serenely appointed, and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was modern and clean with a lovely large shower. Huge selection of delicious treats for breakfast. Liz went out of her way to help us with local touring info, plus helped us re-book a stay later in our itinerary. Friendly atmosphere, and quiet rooms. No noise heard from other guests. Water in the shower did not get hot enough, though the sink was fine. Never could locate the hair dryer. Would recommend to a friend

“Beautiful Guesthouse:)”

I liked that everything is new…and Rosalie, if you have a question she will always help!

“excellant service . home from home”

7 night . twin room spotlessly clean . interested and attentive landlady . great breakfast – especially fresh fruit. Twin room was small . would have been a bit trying for a whole week , but we were moved to a much bigger room (without requesting it ) which was perfect

“Welcoming venue for a relaxing time.”

Restful and friendly guest house. Very clean and quiet, the perfect place to stay for a relaxing holiday. Owners made you feel at home and at ease. Great breakfasts! See above! Plus: easy parking, near to town (but far away enough to avoid noise), Owners are locals who have a vast knowledge of the area to help you make the best of your holiday.

“very accommidating owner.”

stayed over night before catching the morning ferry to Isles of Scilly, so needed to be up early. not a problem for the owner she had breakfast waiting for us very nice. Owner very helpful with good advice for the evening and car park in morning.

“Very enjoyable stay.”

We received a warm welcome.We were given good local information from Liz,eg places to eat and visit.We would highly recommend this Guest House. Well located.Clean,comfortable,and homely.

“A pleasant short break in a very friendly and calm atmosphere, will be using again in the future”

A great start to a short visit, we arrived at the “Rosalie” after a long eventful train journey Liz greeted us at the door and welcomed us in. She asked how our journey had been and realised the first thing that we needed was a good cup of tea which she duly prepared. We were then shown our room which was quite small but adequate for our needs. Liz explained the workings of the ensuite and told us of the eating places in the area. Over the next 2 days we used her info and dined out well. Comfortable bed, good ensuite, excellent breakfast, friendly great atmosphere, with all the thing a good B&B should have. The accomodation was very acceptable in all aspects

“Warm & friendly”

We really enjoyed our stay at Rosalie, the bed and room made up each day, with fresh towels every other. Landlady warm and friendly. Good breakfast choice. Would recommend this guest house. Landlady was very helpful with suggestions of where to go locally for the day and for eating out in Penzance. Really clean and good breakfast choice. only negative was the room was pretty small and not a lot of wardrobe space.

“Excellent Vacation”

very friendly people

Wonderful warm and friendly stay.”

Lovely stay at Rosalie guest, warm, friendly and exceptionally helpful owner. Good double room and facilities for our short break stay. Lovely friendly, helpful owner, nothing was too much trouble. Very good breakfast and a wide choice on offer. Clean, comfortable double room.

“summer weekend stay”

2 Nights stay at this warm, friendly and highly hospitable guest house. We will certainly consider this guest house if we visit Penzance in the future. A really welcoming welcome and hospitality that extended to our day trips such as advice as to where to go. All the facilities we expected were here and the breakfast and service were all excellent. The shower didn’t drain properly so it filled up like a paddling pool. There were previous guest hairs on the siap tray in the shower.

A guest house close to all facilities”

Met by the owner. She was inviting and informative. When asked for directions she was obliging and nothing was to much trouble. Clean and well organised.

“Perfect in every way”

We found the accomodation purely by chance on a late bookings site and would definitely visit again, when in Penzance. The visit was made more pleasurable through the welcome from Liz and finding out about the local train service to St Ives, which we had never been aware of during previous visits to the area. Everything was very welcoming, fresh and clean. There was plenty of parking space and the location was ideal to encourage a nice walk to the main centre of Penzance. No, everything was ideal.

“a very comfortable stay home from home Liz is so hospitable”

A short break to visit friends and family and once again enjoy cornwall. So obliging and hospitable especially as my husband of 82 had a small accident aand had to go to West Cornwall Hospital the service there was excellent

“Friendly, comfortable, clean & great breakfast”

Checked in quickly- two comfortable nights in clean rooms & very good breakfast. Owners very friendly & full of local information if you want it. Very welcoming; clean & breakfast very good.

“lovely place”

We spent a romantic weekend in this lovely place. The rooms charming and the service absolutely perfect. Clean, cosy, nice. Our room, the twin one, was a bit small and not confortable for a couple as you couldn’t put the beds together. But, still, the room was very nice.

Friendly atmosphere and useful knowledge about the surroundings.”

We stayed for 5 nights in Penzance and had it as a bas for excursions along the West Coast Path. The friendly atmosphere and that the staff hade great knowledge about the surroundings, coast path, buses and restaurants.

“We would recommend the guest house.”

Nice and quiet guest house. Warm welcome and good information about facilities, room clean and good breakfast

“A delightful, friendly, comfortable place to stay.”

We loved this place! We were warmly welcomed, even though we had arrived early. The room was lovely, quiet and spacious.The owner was friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious, with a great deal of free choice, and fresh, tasty food.The road is quiet, too, and it was easy to catch buses nearby.We’d happily give this guest house 10/10. Attractive, quiet, friendly atmosphere, helpful owners, delicious food, easy access to fresh milk for drinks, very well run, very comfortable room.

“Good, dependable, B&B”

I was staying at Rosalie with my colleague on a business trip. It was clean, comfortable and well-located for our purposes. Very easily accessible and flexible to our needs and hours (which were long and required us to leave early and arrive back extremely late). The proprietors were very welcoming & friendly too! Nothing that I kind think of – will definitely be back!

“Ideal for exploring western Cornwall”

Pleasant quiet place. We loved the historic town house

“Fine for a brief stay”

A 3 night break. Position, access to local facilities, easy parking, quiet, clean and newly refurbished, excellent en suite. Only comment would be the modest room size (Room 4), barely large enough for two, nowhere for suitcase(s) other than on the floor or bed, only one chair. Had to leave walking gear in the car.

“A very easy and comfortable stay”

Very friendly wellcome,good room ,great breakfast. Friendly and efficient service.
