My mother and I were on a Rabbie's Trailblazer tour of Devon and Cornwall, and they booked us into this charming guest house/ B and B for two nights, and we were both blown away by the house itself and the warm welcome we received from Ellen and Kate. The room was a small attic room--but never fear: it was... More

Falmouth is situated in quite a hilly area and the situation of this fantastic guest house is no exception, so this would be my only warning. If you stay here and want to walk about, you need to be able to walk up and down a quite a bit! The beach is only a couple of minutes walk down the... More

(Retrospective Review) Stayed May 15 for 3 nights. Lovely big room with excellent facilities and view over Ghylly beach. Staff very friendly and helpful and excellent breakfast sets you up nicely for the day ahead....just a minute walk from the sandy beach and 10 mins from the town centre. Highly recommended and is on our list of places to stay... More

The Westcott is a gem of a find. Family run , most welcoming. Lovely rooms and breakfasts. Perfect location for the town and beach. We enjoyed our 4 night stay. The area is ideal for touring this area of Cornwall. Car parking , and I am fussy , was not an issue.

We stayed here for three nights to see Falmouth. An excellent choice, this is a proper family run guest house. A warm welcome from friendly people. Our room, 2, had a lovely view down to the local beach and comfy chairs so we could sit and enjoy the view. Unusually the bathroom was huge with lots of natural light. There... More

Stayed at The Westcott at beginning of June. It certainly lived up to its reviews. It's just a short walk down to the beach, and there is a beautiful walk around the headland to be had. The owners were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfast and choices were as good (if not better) than... More
