An excellent place to stay - very competitively priced - everything scrupulously clean - dining/bedroom very tastefully decorated - plenty of choice of scrummy food for breakfast - Sharon & Mike perfect hosts. Faultless - no other words needed ! Liz & Nick. August 2015.

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

This was our sixth visit to Falmouth in 10 months to visit my partners daughter who is at the university. Have stayed in many different b&b and this is definitely at the top end, superb location , rooms are spotless, we had balcony overlooking Gylly beach with wonderful views. Breakfast was very tasty with lots of choice. Will definitely return.

We stayed for 5 nights and couldn't find fault with anything. The room was spotless, the breakfast was good, The hotel is situated in an ideal place, a stones through from the beach and a short walk to the harbour and shops. Would recommend to anyone who prefers a quite relaxing holiday.
