Four bedrooms. Three bathrooms. Games room. Separate TV space. Elegantly and distinctively furnished, in a stylish and colourful mix of contemporary, refurbished traditional and mid-20th century modernist.

Loft-Style apartment with Excellent Views
The location is excellent, with shops, bars and restaurants on your doorstep. However, if you choose one of the mezzanine-style bedrooms, you might struggle to sleep if you need darkness - there are no blinds or curtains on the windows, so the sun streams into the bedroom VERY early during the summer months. Facilities in the apartment are excellent. Also, my friends brought a small puppy and this was excellent for them.

Mr
This apartment made our family vacation to Cornwall ! The big bright open spaces in the penthouse with stunning views of the sea and harbour made it the perfect place to get away. The apartment itself is well kitted out with amenities and well maintained. We will definitely return again !

Beautiful apartment overlooking pretty Penzance and the sea
We had a terrific stay in this property. The open plan kitchen/dinning/sitting room has enormous windows with views of Penzance rooftops and out to sea. Morning coffee can be consumed whilst taking in the sensational views and insight gathered as to what the weather is saying so you can plan your day. The design has been very carefully and stylishly thought out. There is a wet room positioned by the front door for hosing down after trips to the beach, very handy with children! On rainy days there is a games room and enough space to curl up with a book in a deck chair looking out to sea without being disturbed. It is ideally located- close to the shops, the beach and our favourite lido. Highly recommend.

Stunning apartment
This apartment is just huge, with wonderful views across Penzance harbour. Kitchen very well equipped, bathrooms modern and spacious. Everything spotless. There's even room for a pool and table tennis table - such a bonus with kids - the TV didn't get turned on once during our stay. The only slight negative is that the double beds are on the small side (but we're a family of 6-footers). It's above the Exchange Gallery with its pop-up cafe, and there are plenty of decent restaurants and fascinating shops nearby. The flat is on the 2nd floor, there is a lift. A parking space is allocated.

Stunning apartment in the heart of Penzance
This apartment really has the wow factor - we were delighted with the light airy vast space and contemporary decor in every room, with panoramic views over the bay and the rooftops of Penzance. The owners have done a lovely job of converting rooms from the former telephone exchange into a wonderful spacious apartment which is centrally located near shops and restaurants. We would love to return for another visit.

Spacious, welcoming, bright, 5 Star!
The White Rooms, Penzance is such a great place to stay and I've been a few times now. It really is worth the 5 hour train journey, and better still, only a 10 minute or so walk from the station. It's a must for girlie weekends, with enough space to hang out freely, to laugh, dance and enjoy those great views! When you walk in all the stresses and strains just fall away, it's the high ceilings, the decor and the expanse of it all. It is also very clean and well kept and I love the wet room! Penzance high Street is great with many shops to browse through. I love the Sunday vegetarian lunch at the Crown, it has to be the best nationwide! Together with the beach side walks, it's a great mix of everything. The White Rooms makes for a great get away, a very pleasant stay and I highly recommend it.

real peace and beauty - exceeded expectations!
We have just come back from a fantastic few days at the White Rooms. We were genuinely amazed! The house is hugely spacious (an old telephone exchange building). It's contemporary and stylish whilst still being comfortable and cosy - with huge windows and great views. Just a few doors down from the high street so loads of restaurants, pubs and shops on your doorstep. Beautiful weather also helped, but we had a brilliant holiday with family! Found out that it also has underfloor heating throughout, so will definitely consider it for a winter get away.

The only place to stay in Cornwall
This space is so cool, its like a New York loft apartment but right by the sea. Has everything you could want for either a short or long stay. I went with friends and it suits every mood, with beautiful views and comfortable surroundings. Only issue with it, was it was so hard to leave I loved it so much
