I stayed there for a night to attend an interview at the university the next day, and I couldn't be more satisfied with my time spent there. The whole staff were extremely kind and welcoming, and so, so helpful and attentive! I had to leave early for the interview the next day, and they very kindly opened the dining room... More

The owner is very welcoming and accommodating as befits a man who attended to Show Biz stars. Some of whose photos are diplayed. Some might think it "twee and old fashioned" but it is really charming.

We've stayed at the Poltair and have reviewed it before, but the last was a while back and it should be said that Anne and Malcolm have maintained a very high standard consistently over the years we've visited. Everywhere is spotless and fresh, both the en suites and the sumptuously furnished bedrooms. You're made to feel welcome, from the personal... More

Dear Trip Advisor readers We would really like to thank OscarVII for yet another review - and such a flattering one.

My son and I stayed here for 3 evenings. As soon as we arrived we were met by Malcolm who was so friendly and made us feel very welcome. Our room was really clean and tidy, a lovely sea view and beds were so comfortable. The breakfast was amazing, so hot and everything cooked freshly, lots of choice and nothing... More

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
