      The Dunedin

      A very nice and comfortable en-suite room and very clean. An excellent location. No cooked meals due to Covid but option to have a continental breakfast delivered to the room each morning - suitable table and chairs provided. There is also a small fridge in the room.

      Lovely stay

      Lovely little inn, good location and a 10minute walk into town. Room was very spacious with TV, small dining table, wardrobe, and kettle! They had good precautions due to COVID but still did a daily service to clean the rooms which was nice.

      great stay

      Great stay at the Dunedin. They are taking Covid cleaning very seriously so we felt safe the whole time we were there. Great location in a quiet part of Penzance but easily walkable to the city centre.

    • 6.0.Good


      Good location within 10 minutes walk into town. The room was dated but clean however, not comfortable. Mattress/bed very creaky. Could clearly hear creaky noises from the room above. Didn’t get breakfast despite paid for; on arrival we were informed that it was room only rate and there would be an extra charge if we wanted breakfast. Wish this would have been communicated to us beforehand. Asked politely for extra towels for one day but was rudely refused by the owner who clearly didn’t really care about her guests and their comfort. Overall a very disappointing place and wouldn’t recommend.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      We liked the comfort, the cleanliness, the breakfasts and the welcome of our hosts, John and Linda who were lovely. The only minor criticism is that we could have done with more shelf space in the bathroom as being older we each have our own collection of potions, powders and pills!
