We stayed at the Observatory as a group of divers so it was a mix of shared and single rooms. the owners were extremely welcoming and breakfasts were very good. The house is having work done but the rooms as they stand are adequate. Location is good. Parking is a bit tight but overall for the cost the guest house... More

Recent 4 night stay in Falmouth and this was a great little hotel. Rooms were clean and cosy, the breakfast was generous and freshly cooked to order and the location was great for both the beach and the town. The hosts Heidi and Paul were friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable about the area, even providing discount vouchers for local sites... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for four nights in September 2013. We were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay in Falmouth that was also reasonably close to the main part of town. The Observatory was exactly that! We felt very welcome and had an amazing experience - the hosts could not have been more awesome. The one... More

We stayed here having walked in looking for a night's stay.We actually stayed for two. Heidi and Paul were very welcoming and were very knowledgable about the area. The room was very clean and there were some seaside-y ornaments which made it feel homely.A heated rail in the bathroom would have been handy as if you wish to re use... More

We had a pleasant stay at The Observatory,Heidi & Paul were great hosts & the breakfasts were delicious. location was good for walking into town/beaches. However some things could do with freshening up such as new towels & pillows.

At first glance, it looked like a normal b&b. Heidi, the coowner, was very friendly and helpful, but seemed in a hurry. We went into the room, and it had a musky smell. As it wasn't so bad (the window was open and there was air freshener), we didn't think that much of it. We left the room to look... More

I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough. The owners, Paul and Heidi are so helpful and welcoming and the breakfasts are delicious. It's in a great location, walking distance to town and sandy beaches and the rooms are nice and clean. There's free parking and the owners will help in any way they can.
