Quite frankly, this is the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Simon and Vanessa were absolutely perfect hosts - welcoming, friendly, kind and helpful. The cleanliness was second to none and the overall decoration was brilliant. Our room (room 3, double) couldn't have been better with a lovely en-suite and very comfortable bed. The breakfast was amazing, with a... More

Highcliffe is a fantastic place to stay - couldn't recommend it more. Simon and Vanessa go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. The rooms are beautifully and individually decorated and kept spotlessly clean, very comfortable and easy to relax in. The breakfasts are delicious and really set you up for the day.... More

Highcliffe really is the perfect B&B. My Son & I stayed for 1 night, ahead of his uni interview & were met by Simon, who couldn't have made us feel more welcome - having kindly allowed us to check in earlier (by arrangement), he gave us a map of the town & pointed out great places to eat, made our...

It's hard to imagine how a B&B like Highcliffe could possibly improve ... truly charming hosts, beautifully decorated and furnished, clean as a pin and with delicious breakfasts including the wonderful "specials" which on our 2 night stay included - scrambled eggs with smoked salmon on a muffin and pancakes with bacon, banana and maple syrup!! The specials are not... More

My sister and I stayed for a night to see some friends that are currently based in Falmouth. Simon greeted us and made us feel welcome from start to finish. The breakfast was delicious and the room was comfortable and decorated very nicely. Simon was so attentive and would come and stay here again. Thank you for a lovely B... More

We decided to take ourselves away for a last minute short break and I can honestly say It was all we hoped for and more! We were so happy to meet and chat with Simon and Ness, who made our stay so memorable, they really have thought of everything. We stayed in room 5, the bed was super comfy, the... More

We had a really lovely weekend away in Falmouth, made perfect by Simon and his team at Highcliffe B&B. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. Simon is a great ambassador for all the other independent businesses in Falmouth and his enthusiasm for the area is infectious. Our room was very spacious and comfortable with... More

You're right Falmouth is worth a visit in all seasons, but you've done a Winter visit so you definately deserve to see Falmouth in warmer sunshine. We're really pleased you enjoyed you stay and were able to see the many innovative, quirky and independent business' even in winter, that Falmouth offers. You're very kind to take the time to write... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in room 5. As previous people have commented, you really cannot fault this place. The décor is amazing, stylish but not garish, the bed is super comfy, everything is spotlessly clean, the temperature in the house is just right, its blissfully quiet at night. However the best things about this B&B can be... More

We hope your version of 'Poor Knights' is helping you start the day well back at home. We love it when guests come through the door straight from making the most of what Cornwall has to offer and we're even more impressed when you've been surfing in November. Good on you. It was a pleasure having both of you stay... More

Simply excellent, we really cannot fault this B&B and we would highly recommend anyone to stay here. Let’s start with the beautiful décor - the rooms are contemporary and fresh, whilst at the same time honouring the quirky, quintessentially English heritage of the house. The mix of vintage pieces and modern design throughout make you feel comfortable and at home... More

Thank you ever so much for trusting us with your honeymoon treat. It's great to hear how you fell in love with Cornwall all over again, as adults this time. This Winter has certainly allowed Cornwall to show off it's wild & rugged side helping it to be the unique place that it is. Thank you also for your kind... More

We stayed here for one night as my son was visiting Falmouth Uni Open Day. I am hoping he decides to go there as would love to come and stay here again!

We do hope that your son has got the results he was after and of course we are biased but it would be great if he chose Falmouth.
