We recently stayed at Pensalda guest house for our weeks holiday. Karen was extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. I mentioned our 10 year old liked tortoises and Karen bought Henry the tortoise to our room to show him. We also loved the dog Winnie. We stayed in room 7 the family room and it was clean, comfortable and met our needs. The accommodation is walking distance to Newquay Town centre it takes about 10 mins to walk in so ideally located. We would definitely recommend the Pensalda guest house. Thank you!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Pensalda. Karen was a great host and very friendly and welcoming. The room was spotless and very comfortable. It is a great location as only 10-15 mins walk to the beach and into town. Would highly recommend to anyone taking a trip to Newquay and it was much better value than staying in a hotel. If we are ever travelling to Cornwall again we shall certainly be booking to stay here.

The Guest house is around a 20 minute walk from the Centre of Newquay, which when Sunny is a enjoyable walk. This is the first time i had been to Newquay and it now won't be the last. Karen and John we'll see you next year. Matt and Tracie. xx

We stayed in one of the family rooms at the back which was very clean and very comfortable. Karen and John and the lovely dog all made us very welcome which all helped towards a very relaxing holiday. The walk to town is not that far, as long as you have a sneaky one in the Great Western on your way! Also very close to Lusty Glaze beach which is fantastic. Definately on our return to one day list.

We stayed at Pensalda for 3 nights.This accommodation is very clean and tidy with free WIFI.We were treated very well and the staff were very friendly and helpful.The rooms were tidied/cleaned each day.We had a welcome pack of leaflets on places to go and see which was useful and interesting.There is a car park space for each room and this was available for us on each day.The breakfast was lovely and the staff were friendly and chatty and knowledgable about the area.It is around a 20 minute walk into the main town centre, but the location of the Pensalda was reasonably quiet and out of the way of the hustle and bustle of town, so it suited us in that respect.I would recommend this accommodation for a short break in Newquay.

Really enjoyed our stay, very welcoming and friendly as were the other guests staying, very chatty brekkies! Lovely cooked breakfasts, very clean room, no need to ask for anything. A bit of a running joke with us is how good the shower is, for us we had no complaints, easy to use and powerful. Fabulous! Also the house was quiet at night which is great for me as I am a light sleeper.

From our initial contact, throughout our stay until our departure we can only praise John and Karen for their service and hospitality. Our room was excellent, everything had been thought about, even the little things (like child cutlery, nappy bin etc..) very baby and toddler friendly. Inclusive breakfast was exceptional. Highly recommended!

We had a very nice stay in an outside room, Very impressed with how Clean Pasalda wasand really enjoyed the Breakfast,only other comment was the bed needs a new mattress as we kept rolling into the middle of the bed.
Glad you enjoyed your stay, sorry about the mattress it was due for an update. Elaine and Chris Welford stayed in that room for a week after you with no complaints about the bed, see review "Brilliant week"But we have ordered a new bed and mattress anyway.Thanks for your comments.
