Last time I stayed here in September 2013 I think was just at the time The Westcott was changing hands. Finally made it back down to Falmouth so booked in again, really pleased to say nothing has changed. Friendly and welcoming, great breakfast, rooms to same excellent standard as before, will definitely be back!

Thoroughly enjoyed a relatively short but enjoyable stay at the Westcott. We were greeted with a friendly welcome and our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast selection was varied, fresh and tasty. Our only regret is that we didn't stay for longer

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Excellent breakfast to start the day. The location is a short walk to the beach and about 10mins walk to the... More
