I stayed for a long weekend at The Wescott and couldn't have asked for a nicer B&B. Location was perfect, beach was at the bottom of the road and the Harbour a nice 10 minute walk. I stayed in Room 1, a lovely spacious, immaculate room. B&B overall was very homely, staff were very friendly and did everything they could... More

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

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
