Myself and my dive buddy stayed here for three nights whilst diving and site seeing in the area. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Great hosts. Great room. Great breakfast. What more can you ask for?

We literally arrived outside the Observatory, rang from the car , were instantly met by Heidi, viewed the room and booked for a couple of nights. Location is pretty good with just a short walk into the Town, bit of a slope on the way back up, but we two oldies made it, maybe 10 mins at our speed. Both... More

We had a lovely two night stay here. The owners were really helpful and breakfast was plentiful and tasty. The only drawback is the carpark is a bit of a tight squeeze. Other than that, an ideal, quiet and comfortable base to explore Cornwall from. Thank you!

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

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
