Location is great with 10 minutes walk to gilly beach and 10 minutes walk to the city centre. Rosemary and her husband know the area very well so please ask them... More

An excellent B&B, clean and spacious rooms (en-suite), TV and tea/coffee facilities, friendly professional hosts, good breakfasts (which are optional) and a lounge with a TV for guests to use, if they wish. Plenty of car parking space in the front of the house and/or a nearby side street. Also Falmouth itself is a good pace to stay because of... More

Really lovely superior accommodation, great bathroom and comfy bed. Plenty of electric points, mirrors for getting ready. Wifi reliable, provision of TV, DVD freeview etc great for rainy evenings and cannot miss programmes.! Very handy for the train station so a great choice for those travelling without a car. Close to all the sights and attractions of Falmouth.

We spent a week in April in the Below Stairs apartment and had everything we needed and more! The kitchen is spotless, very well equipped -- even to a dishwasher and washing machine. The bedroom is just right, with comfortable bed and a roomy ensuite. The half-bath at the entrance makes it easy to come in and out from the... More

We spent 3 nights at the Wellington, and it was fantastic. It's such a beautiful guesthouse with plenty of character, and 2 owners who are simply wonderful and extremely helpful. The bed was very comfortable and had all amenities you would expect. Wellington has a driveway for car parking, although the road opposite is free too. Breakfast was very tasty... More

The kitchen has everything you would need, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and separate freezer, microwave, etc etc. There are nice (and not expected) little extras like tea, coffee, biscuits, cereals...
