We've stayed in a lot of B&Bs in Europe and the US. There are no better hosts anywhere than Simon and Vanessa. Simon, being a Cornishman, was very helpful in giving us tips for our day trips. If he tells you it will take 45 minutes to get somewhere, believe him. He was accurate every time. He gave us lots... More

Highcliffe is perfectly located to most of the top attractions and restaurants of Falmouth. It is very clean, efficiently run by Simon and Vanessa who do everything in their power to make their guests feel at home and have a great stay. When we first arrived, we parked in the street in front and Simon came out to greet us... More

Perfect example of how a business should be run. Evidence of great planning, attention to detail and outstanding hosts made this a break to remember and recommend. Location, decor and food all faultless.

We spent just one night here. Such a warm, friendly and knowledgeable welcome. So much thought and effort has gone into every little detail and it was faultless throughout. Rooms were comfortable, spacious and well finished along with being exceptionally clean. Breakfast was nice with local produce used. Highly recommend and will absolutely be back soon!

A return visit, and still perfect in every way. Welcoming hosts, exceptional rooms, brilliant shower, quiet. Five minute walk to town centre. Easy parking. First rate breakfast, either the traditional "full English" or the imaginative daily special.

I booked my mother into the Highcliffe, approx 6 months prior to her stay, which she has just completed. Simon & Vanessa couldn't have been more helpful and considerate, and my mother felt completely at home, and most importantly at her age, safe and cared for. They greeted her every morning, asking after her, and providing useful local information.The linen... More
