We stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of July 2014' and found Melvill a well placed Guest House from which to explore the delights of Falmouth. On a main road into town it is easy to find with its own car park and easy access to town (10 minutes walk) and the main beach (5 minutes walk). It is... More

Can't find anything wrong with the hotel or service. Rated as 4* but I would give it 5. Breakfast is excellent with plenty of choice. Rooms are also excellent with free wifi. Parking for 4 or 5 cars behind hotel. Only a five or so minute walk into town where there are plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants.

We travelled as a party of 14 to enjoy the Oyster Festival and also for the Blues in the Bay music festival but as there were insufficient rooms at the hotel the majority of the party were staying at, we stayed here. We arrived earlier than the requested check in time but this did not prove to be a problem.... More

A welcoming stay, with no adverse comments. Clean room with good facilities and a breakfast with plenty of choice. Karen and Chris, the owners, always made time to chat and recommend walks and local eateries. A good stay and would not hesitate to go back for a second helping.

We selected Melvill House from an internet site, and struck lucky. Karen and Chris are excellent hosts and manage a clean friendly property in close proximity to beaches and town. They are interested in your stay without being intrusive. They are prepared to offer advice and suggestions on places to visit and eat, and enhance your stay in the area.... More

I've stayed in 4 different B&Bs and hotels in Falmouth so far and this was easily the best. The room was spacious and very comfortable and I slept very well. The room faced away from the road and was therefore very quiet. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The whole building was clean and well maintained. Breakfast was... More

We have just spent 2 nights at the Melvill and have been totally impressed by it. The hosts were fantastic, the room brilliant, the cooked breakfast amazing, and it's in such a perfect location as it's a 5 minute walk to the beach, or a 10 minute walk to town. This lovely guest house gets a 100% rating from us,... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of June in this excellent B&B. Karen was a great host, breakfast was very good, and little touches like the local paper provided every morning was nice. Location is good only 10 minutes to town and events square, less than that to gyllyngvase beach which was marvelous. The pavillion gardens are also... More
