We had a super stay at The Red House. The owners, Nick and Karen, were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was delicious and the room with en suite was beautifully decorated and very clean. A five star hotel even if it hasn't got a parking attendant!!

Very surprised to hear previous reviews claiming rude service. I have stayed here a couple of times, very friendly welcome, comfy and spacious room with everything you could need and a lovely breakfast in the morning. All at a very reasonable price. Location is also excellent being a very short walk to Gylly beach and a pretty short walk from... More

God! So many things to talk about here!!! Please read!!! My boyfriend and I decided to have a few days off in Cornwall in Sept 2014. We stayed there for 3 nights, arriving at The Red House around 7pm on a Monday. Before we arrived there, we received a call saying that there will not be anyone at the premises... More

Firstly, I want to say to you that I have never written a review on a site like Tripadvisor before. I'm not a serial complainer just someone who is that mad about the way he was spoken to. I feel the need to stop more people going to this B&B. I wanted to have a short break away in Cornwall... More

When you booked the accommodation there is a button to select what time you will be arriving this was selected at 16.30, as we knew we would not be available at this time we arranged and paid for someone to be at the guest house between 16.00 and 18.00 hrs as per the terms and conditions, You would have had...

Great stay in the 'home' of Karen & Nick. The good use of their front garden provides car parking which at other guest houses in the area is non-existant. This stay was our fifth at the Red House and again we were not disappointed. The location is fantastic for the beach in front and the harbour and town behind. The... More

I stay at the Red House at least four times a year and wouldn't stay anywhere else. Before I found the Red House 3 years ago I would stay at the Falmouth,the Duchy, St Michaels or the Falmouth Beach (since raised to the ground!) on the seafront as I have been visiting my aunt who lives in Falmouth for over...

This is my first bad review on a hotel for trip advisor. The hostess, Karen, was rude to me from the start. I was a bit god smacked. She showed me our room which overlooks her tiny car park area. On her site with booking.com, it lists that free private parking is available on site so I expected a spot... More

My partner & I stayed here for several days for the Falmouth Tall Ships regatta. Very attractive building in a superb location & in immaculate order inside & out. Run by pleasant, helpful people who are full of sensible local advice if asked. Very nice room & good breakfasts, too. Car parking is potentially tight ish but didn't seem to... More
