I have been staying at The Red House for a total of 5 weeks returning home every 4/5 days and taking a break for a night or two. On my return back to Falmouth The Red House owners are more than happy to accommodate my arrivals (each being different times due to trains).. breakfast is hot, fresh and quick and... More

Just spent 5 nights in Falmouth with my partner and our two cavalier king charles spaniels. We akll enjoyed it immensely. The Red House is everything the other glowing reviews say it is, and the breakfasts were absolutely excellent, delicious and freshly cooked. It's located a short walk from the town centre, has off-street parking and I really doubt if... More

I've used The Red House a few times now on trips to Cornwall and I'll always try to get in here first. I've stayed in other hotels and B&Bs around Falmouth but none compare to The Red House. Location is easy walking distance to the town, the rooms I've stayed in have been much bigger than expected and have always... More

Breakfast is good with lots of choice and the coffee is lovely. Close to the beach and town with parking which is really good as parking at... More

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at The Red House. What a great place to stay - Nick and Karen were wonderful hosts. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and freshly cooked. Karen's home-made jams and marmalades were a delight. The whole place was spotlessly clean and very welcoming. Definitely a place to return to.

However the Red House certainly proved a good choice, it's handy for town and beach and at this time of you can walk the dog on the beach which was a bonus. The hotel is dog... More

Coming to Cornwall for the first time, we chose Falmouth as our base for exploring sites and gardens around the Fal River. The ideal location of Falmouth for this purpose was mirrored by the ideal positioning of The Red House itself, sitting right between the beaches and the city centre, near the railway station (Falmouth Town) and with an airy...
