Four of us have just spent four nights at the Westcott guesthouse. It is very well situated for Falmouth's only beach, the town and the station. We could not fault the rooms or the accommodation. We found it thoroughly enjoyable with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The breakfasts were superb. We would recommend the Westcott!

The breakfast room was bright and clean with some tables having a sea view, down stairs there is also a very comfortable lounge to sit and relax in, with chilled... More

This is very friendly, family run guest house. The breakfast was fabulous with loads of choice and the room was very comfortable. It is situated in a great location near the beach but within walking distance of town. We would definitely stay again.

Was recommended this hotel and was not disappointed. Fabulously clean, brilliant facilities, excellent breakfast and lovely staff. Situated just up from the beautiful beach (fab views from our bedroom window), and about a 15 minute walk into the lovely town of Falmouth. Would definately stay here again.

Excellent staff! I needed to say that first as a lady called Kate greeted us at the door from day one and assisted us during our entire stay. The room (room 7) was very nice with decent size wardrobe, kettle, etc - everything that you could need. The shower was great also, decent water pressure to give you a 'proper... More

We stayed here so my daughter could attend an Open Day at the nearby University. Very welcoming B&B. Lovely clean room with sea views, very enjoyable breakfast! We walked to the beach, just down the road and also to the Marina area to eat in the evening. Recommended!
