Sharyn is wonderful - friendly, helpful and charming. The single room under the roof is very small but spotless clean. The breakfast is just amazing. Unfortunately the matress is extremly soft. It was a perfect place for a short break in Falmouth.

This is our second stay here. It was lovely. Sharon & Mike are the perfect hosts. Our rooms were beautiful, clean, comfortable with views of the sea. Breakfast was magnificent! Didn't need to eat til supper time! Will back again next year.

we stayed at the Rathgowry for 4 nights recently & were made really welcome by the hosts Sharon & Mike. The hotel is situated overlooking the lovely Gylly beach, is only a short drive into Falmouth town & the breakfast menu is superb ! Very clean, comfortable bed, nice en-suite shower & great wi-fi ! Highly reccomended.

My husband and I spent a weekend at The Rathgowry at the beginning of September and it was amazing! The bedroom was beautiful, clean and cozy with a great view of Gilly beach. The location is perfect: 10 minutes walking to town, 20 minutes walk to the Castle and same time for a lovely walk by the coast to the... More

Delightful hosts of a comfortable and clean guest house in a superb location. Two minutes from a super beach yet walking distance to the town with all its amenities, highly recommended for couples and families.

The owners are wonderfully helpful and breakfast options are sublime. Our room was light and airy during a hot and humid time of year. The guest house is extremely close to a beautiful beach and is close enough to the town centre to explore Falmouth on foot.

I managed to book two single rooms for myself and my son.....a rarity usually.....for a wedding at Pendennis Castle and afterwards for the reception at The Pavilion. It was in the perfect location and all walkable..

Good location overlooking beach and sea, approximately 10 minutes walk into town. Parking on hotel forecourt convenient, but can get compact when hotel is full. Room is decent size with usual amenities, on suite, tea, coffee, TV, free Wi Fi etc. Hotel is spotless, staff are very friendly and helpful. Good choice of breakfast, especially the 'Full English' (yummy) Likes:... More

My top-floor room enjoyed, as promised, outstanding views of the beach and coast. It also offered much more storage and comfort than I expected for the price, particularly given the warnings on the property's web-site about its small size. I did not feel cramped and it was wonderfully quiet. The only drawback was that the bathroom is not en-suite and... More
