Just one night at The Westcote, but enough to enjoy the family atmosphere and the friendly hosts. The room, which was spotlessly clean, had a view of the bay and the beach just a few yards away. Breakfast was excellent and cooked to perfection. This quiet little corner of Falmouth is an absolute gem of a place, no traffic, no... More

The Westcott is a family run business and what a lovely family they are. Very approachable, friendly and will do anything to make you stay a happy one. Our room was room 1 and this overlooked a beautiful beach, it was spotless and had plenty of space. The breakfast was very high quality and generous portions. Good value for money.... More

A lovely family has just purchased The Westcott B&B (this is their second week) and they are making every effort to make this a "home away from home" for their guests. Bedroom number 5 has a view of the back garden. It is quite small, with a comfortable premium quality bed, good storage space and a spotless shower/toilet. The bathroom... More

The hotel is pretty and has an excellent location right on the beach and ten minutes to the city. Our room nr 10 was rather budget place style and needs refurbishment. Under the roof, you cannot stand. Neither in the shower. staff was very friendly but had just taken over the hotel and had some pr wth internet and cash... More

Having been before The Westcott was our target for a group of friends. Still the best in my view for value for money, comfort, great facilities. Mark and Sally as ever always willing to go the extra mile to make sure guests are well treated. Loads of parking, lovely lounge, comfortable rooms. Everywhere is so well decorated, light and airy.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here at the beginning of June. So glad we did. Lovely location and such friendly staff. It doesn't quite directly overlook the sea but we did have a small sea view plus it is only a couple of minutes walk down to beach. We had a room on the top floor, maybe bit of an... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at this lovely establishment in May. All very comfortable and accommodating. Attentive staff, very nice breakfast with exceptional yogurt. Professional photos don't do it justice - the carpentry that turned it into bedrooms with en suite bathrooms is exquisite and very clever, and made the nicest, well appointed bathroom possible. Great bed linens... More

Very warm welcome from Sally. Our room on the 1st floor had a wonderful view of the coast and Gilly beach. The room was very clean with plenty of storage, a generously sized bathroom with good shower and a very comfy bed. The road outside is very quiet but good double glazing keeps out any noise. Breakfast served in a... More
