We had a really great time. The room was comfortable with a beautiful view to the harbour, the breakfast was excellent (we tried everything we could choose from) and Gill & Dave were wonderful hosts. Dave gave us a few tips which places to visit, and we enjoyed everyone of them. Thank you for letting us feel welcome and at... More

We stayed here in early June while visiting the university at Falmouth. We had the attic room for the three of us, and we had plenty of room. Good cosy corner for a couple of extra beds or just have the comfortable double bed for a couple. Good shower room, ceiling is quite low in places, as expected as it's... More

5 of us had 2 rooms. The attic room and Chinese room. Very comfortable and plenty of space. A lovely view also from the attic room! Nice tea and coffee facilities in the room. Friendly owners. Would recommend.

We chose the Guest house because it looked a really homely place to stay with wonderful views from our bedroom. Gill and Dave are so welcoming and you just feel at home the minute you enter. Everything is so appealing, from the rooms to the ambience , with a lovely breakfast cooked in front of you in a Kitchen that... More

After spending a horrendous night in the observatory in Falmouth where it smelt old, musky and I couldn't sleep during the night because something in the room was causing my throat to feel dusty and causing me to cough. I knew I couldn't stay there another night... Thankfully we were down for my brothers graduation and he was staying at... More

We had the Attic room with great views of Falmouth harbour. The Red arrows came to town and we were told by the owners, at the communal breakfast, to view the display from our room. We were not let down by taking their advice. Fantastic! Gill and Dave are great. Probably the best guesthouse I have stayed in.. Spotless. Booked... More

So Glad you had a good view of the Red Arrows from the Attic Room. I was a little worried that perhaps Dave was being a little too enthusiastic about watching the display from there as we haven't actually done this ourselves because guests have always booked the room. Thanks for taking the time to write a lovely review. We... More

We stayed here a few years ago and vowed to return if we ever, again, needed accommodation in Falmouth. We have just returned from a three-night stay and all of the positive comments I made in my previous review are still very much applicable. A wonderful welcome from owners Gill and Dave Reid who greeted us like long-standing friends. We... More
