Apologies for the delay in writing this review! We had a wonderful holiday in Cornwall not least because of the Guest House we stayed at in Newlyn. Newlyn is a pretty but working fishing village away from the bustle of Penzance but close enough to walk or drive in. It is a great base for exploring the whole of Cornwall....

My husband, self and three teenage daughters had a fabulous week long stay at Harbour View. It was amazingly good value for money. The views were breathtaking and the location was perfect for exploration. We enjoyed visits to Sennen Cove, Mousehole, Lands End, Penzance, St Ives, Minack Theatre and Treen beach. We all greedily tucked into a full English every...

All the rooms have harbour views in this guest house in up and coming Newlyn, which feels a lot more like a community than its Penzance neighbour. The breakfast array is bounteous with every cereal you could wish for, and a good cooked option (catering for me as a vegetarian too, which is lovely but doesn't always happens everywhere I...

The Harbour View has the best view over the Newlyn harbour, but it is not the only reason tourists make this B&B there regular address when on holiday in Cornwall.

Terrific view of the harbour, comfortable room, tea and coffee making facilities, wifi, TV, good breakfasts, including good coffee. Sensible prices. Parking can be difficult, make sure you take advantage of the £6.50 deal (which gets you into a much more expensive carpark). If you like fish, make sure you buy enough for your freezer from Trelawney's, just down the...

Hello - thank you writing us a review in such glowing terms - you wrote how it is, I feel. Yes, it is very much a harbour environment, very Cornish and down to earth. The car park deal is good - long may it continue - largely due to the new Harbour staff, probably. Kind regards Joy

A friend of mine recommended this place as one of the best B&Bs she stayed in during her holidays in Cornwall. If you are looking for luxury accomodation with all the trimmings, the Harbour View Guest House is not the right place for you. But if you prefer a rather modest but nice and cosy place, then you will love...
