This was my first time on a Cornish Holiday, and I have to say that it was made great by my experience at the Rathgowry in Falmouth. We drove throughout Cornwall, but upon arriving with my partner, Sharon offered us both a very warm welcome at this B&B. We benefitted from off street parking, but the location was fantastic, being... More

Lovely B & B in a great location 1 minute from Gyllyngvase Beach in Falmouth. Our room had sea views too and was really spacious. Very friendly, kind and attentive hosts who gave us lots of useful information about the local area. Accommodation had a generally homely feel, really comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Great breakfasts too. Lots of nice touches... More

We arrived at Rathgowry, with our daughter & son in law for a short break and were welcomed by Sharon. Hotel was well appointed, just a stroll to a blue flag beach with lovely views. Both our rooms were clean and roomy, we were well fed with local produce by Mike who prepared breakfast to order (including a vegetarian option).... More

What a delightful experience! An outstanding location perfectly complemented by our gracious hosts, Mike and Sharon. Their knowledge of the area and passion for everything Cornish (breakfast is locally produced where appropriate) was a revelation and nothing was too much trouble, every request was acted upon with a smile. The Rathgowry is superb for families and couples alike.

Mike & Sharon made us very welcome. The breakfasts were excellent and well presented with a good choice of foods to cater for every taste. The rooms are spotlessly clean and all have a personal touch. The house has spectacular views and is only a 2 minute walk to a lovely clean beach. With just a short walk into Falmouth... More

From the moment we arrived at the Rathgowry we were made very welcome by Sharon. She and Mike run a splendid guest house. Our room was a decent size, spotlessly clean and very well appointed. The breakfasts are wholesome, well cooked and filling, with plenty of choice. The house is just two minutes walk from a lovely little beach, and... More

We have just spent four nights at this hotel and cannot praise it enough! The rooms were spotlessly tidy, cleaned daily and very homely. There are lots of little items in the room that give it the personal touch! Consideration is given to visitors such as amble tea and coffee, there are biscuits etc in the room in case you... More

Recently stayed at the Rathgowry. I was a little sceptical having read the few negative reviews on Trip Advisor, but have to say that my fears were totally unfounded. My room was immaculately clean and very well presented. The furniture looked brand new and there was plenty of choice of drinks, including some delicious home made biscuits. Breakfast was exceptional... More
