We had a great holiday at The Chocolate House. The house was spotless when we arrived. Although we didn't use the house for cooking, the kitchen had all the facilities needed and the shower was excellent. We used the house as a base to explore surrounding area and it was everything we wanted and expected.

Really enjoyed our stay there. It was good being in a central location ,near to shops and the Bus station. Although central it was quiet and peaceful. It was compact but fine for 2 people. The extra room next to the main bedroom proved useful for ones clothes etc

Good having a House Keeper who could be contacted if necessary, we did speak to her and she was very helpful. Excellent shower and bathroom ,plus the kitchen ,both had very efficient modern appliances. Wonderful break ,getting away from constant Covid pressure.

Charming cottage and good to have what was effectively a second bedroom upstairs to keep our clothes in. Excellent location, great kitchen and a superb shower. Also great to have a safe concealed parking space.

Excellent location near to restaurants/town centre. Would recommend.

An extremely comfortable cottage in central Penzance. It is within walking distance of several interesting galleries, shops and cafes and two cinemas: the Savoy in Penzance and the Newlyn Filmhouse (which boasts a great restaurant).

Reply from Classic Cottages

We're so sorry to hear that the bathroom wasn't as sparkling as it usually would have been for your arrival. Thanks so much for letting us know so that the housekeeper can give it an extra thorough clean. It's great to hear that despite this you liked the cottage and had a good stay overall.

We were thrilled to be able to stay in The Chocolate House, we had seen it on previous visits to Penzance and it more than lived up to our expectations. Everything is of the highest quality and we have rarely stayed in such a well thought out and equipped cottage. Hated having to leave! The stairs could be a problem for some people but the sheer quirkiness of the property makes up for them.
The location is ideal, very central but we found the house exceptionally quiet. The snug, roof terrace and harbour views were a bonus. Lovely bathroom and kitchen. We would happily recommend it to others, as long as they do not have mobility problems.

A lovely, well-equipped cottage that is beautifully appointed and decorated.
