Great location, breakfast is awesome with a special every day, spacious and clean room, parking include and town center is at 5 minutes walk. But what is make this place very special, it's the warm welcome you receive when you arrive, Simon and Vanessa are the most famous host we never had in UK, and we travel a lot in... More

I really enjoyed my four nights at The Highcliffe and definitely intend to go back. In my experience - especially travelling alone on a budget - a B&B tends to be more of a means to an end than somewhere particularly nice to spend time. Instead of being greeted by a dingy hallway with dusty knick-knacks and tired patterned carpets,... More

We really enjoyed our one night stay and wished we'd booked for longer. Great view of the harbour and loved the decor and quirky items such as the door key in a bird house! Tasty breakfasts (recommend the homemade granola - we left with the recipe) and charming hosts Vanessa and Simon. Great location for the harbour or beaches equidistant... More

I had a wonderful stay at Highcliffe. The B&B is in a great location between the beach and the centre of town, an easy 5 minute walk to each. Simon made me feel very welcome and every detail was just right. Breakfast was delicious, with a variety of options; the decor is light and modern yet comfortable and cosy. My... More

I stayed with my wife for 3 nights and 3 fabulous breakfasts. The welcome from Simon and Vanessa and their attention to detail to make sure everything is perfect for everyone is the best experience we have ever had in the UK - perfectly relaxing and very helpful. The house itself is superb, contemporary, airy, welcoming, furnished to very high... More

We recently stayed at Highcliffe and really enjoyed our stay. The owners are very friendly, relaxed and 'hands off', unless you need them of course! There are no rules and all is relaxed, positive and upbeat. I loved the interior decor and quality of the bedding, towels, fixtures and fittings, it was stylish, luxurious as well as being homely. Loved... More

I head my review meeting a friend because this was what it was because prior to our journey there was a rail strike and I was corresponding back and forth with the owner Simon as to when we may arrive at the guest house. He was so helpful and I considered him a friend even before we met each other.... More

From the moment we walked in the door our every need was catered for, very welcoming and wonderful host and hostess. Breakfast first class with local produce and a special board each day. Would definitely recommend this perfect B and B best we have ever stayed in. Big thank you to Simon and Vanessa from Bill and Sandy

This was our first time in Cornwall, and came across this B&B purely by chance whilst searching the internet. As soon as I saw it on-line, it was head & shoulders above the rest and even more so in real life. We stayed for 4 nights in room 2 and wanted to just take a break from busy everyday life.... More

I have stayed at the Highcliffe twice now whilst on business trips to Falmouth and will be booking to stay again and again (Personal trips too)! I have stayed in Room 7 and Room 3. Both beautifully decorated and beyond comfortable (the bed's and linen are wonderful, towels super fluffy). If you can afford to splash out, room 7 is... More
