We were warmly welcomed by Sharon & Mike straight away. Attentive & perfect hosts. Pretty B&B, clean & though our room was small, it has beautiful views of the beach. Delicious breakfast & perfect base.

We were warmly greeted by Sharon and Mike who explained all that was going on in Falmouh, where to eat and the variety of walks available from the front door which was only 50 yards away from the promenade. Our room was spotless, bright and comfortable with delightful sea views. There was a wide variety of options for breakfast with... More

We had arranged a family gathering to celebrate a 21st birthday. There were 10 of us over 5 rooms, and most of us turned up at once. This wasn't a problem at all. We stayed various lengths between 2 & 5 nights and ranged i nages from late teens to over 70s. Nobody has a bad word to say about... More

When we arrived at the hotel we were warmly welcomed by both Sharon and Mike. We had decided to book the family room and were very happy with our choice. Beds were comfortable and the furniture was oak I believe. Bathroom was a tad small and being a big girl I had to squeeze a bit to get in the... More

Booked at short notice as we were taking our daughter back to university. We were surprised that The Rathgowry had rooms available, but we were pleased that they did. We had two spacious, clean rooms, one of which had a great sea view from a balcony. Breakfast was good, with a great choice. A nice final touch was that on... More

A warm welcome awaits at this lovely hotel. Just minutes from the beach, cafe and local walks, it is ideally situated as a base to explore or for a short break to unwind. Only a ten minute walk into Falmouth for shops, boat trips and the Maritime Museum. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the beds very comfortable and a substantial... More

We recently booked two rooms at The Rathgowry to attend our daughters' graduation. Late check up was no problem at all, Sharon was friendly and welcoming. The perfectly white, high quality linen makes all the difference when you're tired! First class choice at breakfast, help yourself to cereal, tea, coffee, juice, plentiful toast, followed by your choice of hot breakfast.... More
