We had originally booked the Abbey to celebrate our 70th birthdays with our 2 sons and their families.. Unfortunately the restrictions of the pandemic dictated that only 2 households could stay together, so my 2 sons shared the week with us, one coming on Saturday till Wednesday, and the other from Tuesday till Saturday. We went to a local hotel for the Tuesday night so that the 2 sons and their children could have a full 24 hours together. It was a compromise, bur was successful, and we were able to appreciate the luxury of The Abbey to the full. In the end, all the rooms were used one way or another. Michael and his wife were there and welcomed us in, and showed us how to use the various bits and pieces, and Thaddeus had organised the cot and highchair etc as requested. I cannot imagine a finer place to stay for a week. It was lovely.

A really beautiful home with all comforts.. We had the most wonderful time in such an exquisitely decorated house and stunning walled garden. I’ve stayed all over the world and this house tops the lot. We will be back.

I will be sending a separate email including some photographs, I would appreciate if you contact me at nikkicampbell94@hotmail.com and provide me with a contact to send that to directly. Thank you, Nikki Campbell.

The house and gardens are wonderful, a time warp.. Great welcome. But what about the kitchen - the heart of any house! Industrial and cold it is not a place you want to spend much time in though we were keen to cook nice food. It is a remnant from the days when the house was a hotel, and no effort made to transform it into something more friendly and usable. The cooker requires 2 people to start it up, the dishwasher not working and tiny. That was disappointing. Also disappointing the lack of care to sort out the continuously beeping alarm in the TV room which was locked and unusable. To find anyone to assist with anything proved difficult, the owner remained aloof and simply directed us to a box of keys and eventually we managed to sort the alarm ourselves, on day four. A little sad to feel this marvel of a house waiting to be taken care of and cherished.

A really great house for a large party of 8 kids and 6 adults.. Beautiful garden and house and a great location. Kitchen is a bit tricky to use with commercial oven and dishwasher but still doable and makes it easy to cater for a large group. Make sure you take instruction on how to use the dishwasher! We had a great break in this beautiful area and lots of lovely family memories were made.

The dishwasher didn’t work properly, hence everything in the kitchen was dirty and needed washing before use..

Overall, The Abbey was very good for the number in our group.. The kitchen was a bit chaotic at times with people here, there and everywhere. There seemed to be no rhyme nor reason to where crockery and utensils were kept. The dishwasher wasn’t great. It would have been better to install one or two ordinary kitchen dishwashers. The gas cooker was so complicated to start up that we resisted a cooked meal till day 3. The house was reminiscent of times gone by and would have been so decadent with a butler, cook and housemaid. We were using all the bedrooms which would have been earmarked for staff! We all had a good time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the house.

We were three generations of family, nine of us in total on holiday to celebrate my husbands 70th Birthday.. The house has a lovely atmosphere and we all felt at home very quickly. Plenty of space for everyone. Lots of good memories were made here. Many a good meal was made in the kitchen & enjoyed in the dining room. I can truly say that all nine of us didn’t want our week to end!

This was an elegant house and a former hotel.. It was spacious and well equipped. It had an industrial kitchen (slightly tricky to use).The bedrooms were all generous in size.Some beds were very comfortable others less so. Lots of bathrooms. We were a party of 14,10 adults and 4 children, so the space was useful and we never felt crowded.We would have welcomed the opportunity to recycle paper,glass and cans.The garden was beautiful but a BBQ would have been welcomed. Penzance is more of an industrial port rather than a seaside resort. The Lido was excellent. Penzance had much to offer if you explored. We could hear mice behind the wood panelling. The cleaner arrived at 8am although we had to check out by 10am. This made us feel under pressure, we has 5 cars with us and 2 were stained in the carpark nearby. Parking was really for 2 large cars or 3 small. We did park 3 cars but this blacked in 2.

Amazing house the right mix of impressive and homely.. Loved the personally of this house: tons of books, niche and cool magazines the mix of art and artefacts. Catering indusrty level kitchen was perfect for serving meals to the 14 house guests and other visitors. Loved it - will book again!

A lovely and fascinating building.. Great for a family weekend. Dining Room and Drawing Room have a lovely atmosphere with great log fires. The copious quantity of high end new magazines and interesting library a bonus. Top floor has a very steep staircase so some care required. Kitchen is a legacy commercial from days as a hotel but still very pleasant. Only negative was we agreed a slightly later departure with the housekeeper as we have elderly parents and a disabled sister in law. The message did not get through to the clrangers who arrived bang on 10 am and seemed a bit disgruntled. However we had a superb weekend in a lovely house. It ticked every box you could hope for.

Our group of up to 14 people enjoyed a week here. Plenty of room, great dining room and associated kitchen made our stay very pleasant. The Abbey has plenty of quirks but they add to the experience. All in our group enjoyed their stay. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants in easy walking distance and it wasn't too far to the bus and train stations. A great place to stay.

This is now a self catering rental rather than a B&B and we stayed here for a week in May. We loved it! The place is beautiful! It has 7 bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms. A large dining room. Separate lounge on the first floor overlooking the back gardens. An industrial kitchen leftover from the B&B days and a small break out room with TV & X Box for the children. There were 13 of us staying in the hose and the was ample space for everyone (adults & children). The place is quirky & bohemian and was a little slice of luxury. The positioning is excellent with views over St Michael's Mount and walking distance of everything you could possibly want (shops, bars, restaurants, etc) In fact once parked up of an evening we didn't need the cars again.
