It was a pleasure to stay at the Highcliffe. After arriving on the overnight sleeper from London and spending the day in St Ives, we were very weary, but we were made to feel at home Instantly, as we were welcomed with a cheery smile and a pot of tea on arrival. Simon and Vanessa take great pride in running... More

Wonderful place to stay, nothing is too much trouble, we stayed for two nights and would have loved to stay longer. Simon and Vanessa made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of information about local restaurants and attractions that we found very helpful. Breakfast was a very enjoyable occasion, far superior to all 4/5 star hotels we have... More

Just returned from 3 fab nights here. From the warm welcome, the helpful map of Falmouth and the tour of the house we felt immediately at home. We stayed in the penthouse suite which frankly we didn't want to leave... Extremely comfortable bed, loads of space for clothes, shoes and all the other stuff you tend to travel with. We... More

Highcliffe is a lovely space to stay. There is a sense of design and attention to detail that make both the public spaces and the room I stayed in a pleasure to be in. My single room was spacious and pleasant with a big window. Attention to detail is also evident in the quality of service. A warm welcome, lots... More

"Perfect in every way" What can we say? Simon and Vanessa are wonderful hosts. They meet all the needs a guest could possibly want. The staff are lovely and nothing is too much trouble. We first stayed here when our daughter had her interview for Falmouth University and loved it so much we decided to return for a summer break.... More

As you will have guessed, this will be our second visit to this amazing Bed and Breakfast and it will not be our last. (We have booked again for next year). The welcome we received from Simon and Vanessa was, once gain, second to none. The food is excellent and cooked just to our liking and the girls that serve... More

We had a fantastic three night stay at Highcliffe. The room we stayed in and general areas are beautiful. Amazing stylish decor. Bed very comfortable. Lovely views. Great breakfast. Simon and Vanessa are such lovely welcoming people and couldn't have been more helpful. We would love to go back.

Well what can I say, our 2nd visit to Highcliffe was just as perfect as the 1st! We chose to have our mini moon in Falmouth as unable to afford going abroad straight after our Wedding. We stayed at Highcliffe a few years ago for our first holiday together so seemed the perfect place to go to celebrate. We decided... More

The Highcliffe was probably the best place we have ever stayed. End of, full stop. Everything was just spot on. A terrific range of breakfasts, with differing specials available every day, a beautifully decorated room, just a few minutes walk from town (and Falmouth is lovely), and most importantly kind and generous hosts. Vanessa and Simon have just about perfected... More
