My husband, daughter and myself stayed just one night here as we were visiting Falmouth Uni open day. What a shame we couldn't stay longer. The room was spotless and comfortable. The location was perfect. The breakfast was wonderful with a lot of choice and so much homemade produce - bread, muesli, yogurt and jam. Was concerned when I called... More

This was booked for me as part of a tour, so did not know anything beforehand. Lovely B&B, everything spick and span, toilets are very nicely done up, slight and I do mean only slight walk from the town centre (10 minutes) but the great B&B makes up for the relative distance.

This is a very good B&B and I am actually upset to give it a 4/5 rating, as if the brekkie had been better, this would have been a hands-down 5/5 rating. In terms of the host, Malcolm has clearly been in the hospitality trade for some time and knows exactly what he is doing. He was very gracious and... More

Let's see, how many times have we stayed here ... five years in a row, for the Sea Shanty Festival. If we hadn't been delighted with Poltair we wouldn't have gone back for a second time, never mind a fifth! So as you can imagine we are just as delighted with Malcolm and Anne as ever. Can't fault you, Poltair.... More

From the minute I stepped through the door, I was welcomed by the owner - Malcolm. I received a room upgrade which I did not expect. My room was comfortable, clean and tidy. The shower in the morning had plenty of hot water. Breakfast was lovely in the morning - a freshly cooked English Breakfast (other options available) and a... More

My son and I braved a drive down from Bath on the stormiest day of this stormy winter (he had an interview the next day) and found the Poltair to be as welcoming and comfortable as he had found it on a similar trip in the autumn with his mother. The view from my bedroom's large conservatory was memorable --... More

We stayed in the top floor room in the Poltair with a wonderful little conservatory area and comfy seating, which overlooked the sea and also had a little terrace on either side. A bonus was the fridge and a very useful dressing table area with lots of shelves and a couple of baskets. There was no wardrobe but a hanging... More
