It was very clean, I think one day... More

Excellent service, good advice on local restaurants and attractions etc., comfortable beds and rooms, lovely view, good variety of offerings for breakfast, and close to where you want to be in Falmouth. We'd certainly stay there again.

Sharon and Mike are great hosts and didn't hesitate to go the extra mile to make our stay at their B&B very comfortable. We travelled with our two young daughters aged 4 and 7 and our ensuite room was large... More

Lovely clean and airy room. Very comfy bed. Beautiful view from the balcony over the bay! Sharon was very helpful and lovely in all respects. Breakfast was fab especially Sharon's home made muesli! Maybe the shower cubicle was a little small and the sink a little inconvenient in the corner of the room but for us neither was a problem... More
