Thank you so much for your very kind words. It was wonderful to see you all again and just great to have the opportunity to look after you and spend some time chatting. Karen as I write is hard at work in the kitchen with the next experimental jam after blackberrying, should have a treat for your next visit. Love... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Our ground floor room was well presented, clean and comfortable. The owners were friendly and inviting and gave us good information about falmouth. It is in a great location being only a two minute walk to the beaches and a 5 minute walk to the town center. The only downside to our holiday was the... More

Thanks for taking the time to write your review we greatly appreciate it. Sorry you found it a bit noisy but would be interested to know if this was in the mornings or evenings. Glad you felt we are in a good position to explore the town, beaches and Cornwall. thank you once again. More

The room was wonderful, spacious, clean, well decorated, with attached en suite, with everything, and more you could want from an upmarket hotel, in a B&B room. Pleasant and friendly hosts, & lots of free parking at the B&B and in several roads, very close by. A great base for exploring by car or on foot.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and that not only had time to write a review mentioning the comfy bed and ease of parking, hard to find in some places in Cornwall. It was nice to meet you both and hopefully look forward to seeing you both again sometime soon. More

Great location, owners very friendly and helpful, no stone left unturned! We were returning from Lands End and needed somewhere to stop off for journey home back to London! This was ideal as we wanted to visit "The Lizard", which is about 40 mins away! Falmouth wasn't the main part of our trip, but I will be returning next year.

We were greeted by Nick & Karen who were very welcoming. Our room had a fantastic view and was spotlessly clean. It was spacious, had everything you needed and had a connecting room for our daughter. Nick and Karen added extra little touches that made your stay just that bit more special and one to remember. Breakfast was delicious and... More

Great welcome followed by a room with a view and excellent breakfasts. We enjoyed the variety of restaurants and places to visit, particularly Pendennis Castle and the harbour area. Easy travel to other places in South Cornwall.

We had booked a room with a bathroom or so we thought. Though when we got there we found our shower and toilet when across the landing from our room. We were told "dont worry its quiet and they are for your own private use only". What we werent told... we were on the ground floor, between the kitchen and... More

We should have said something but it can spoil the break and we didn't want to get into discussion but its the small things that show if you care about customers. The lack of herbal tea, the two sad looking biscuits, the old flannel with holes in, the glass that is too large to fit under the tap, the old... More

On arrival we were greeted by both Nick and Karen who were welcoming and showed us around our lovely room. As soon as we entered our rooms, we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms very clean, very quirky with a modern seaside vibe to it. It was faultless. Nick recommended a few places to eat and to go as it was... More
