This has to be the classiest Guest House ever. The bedrooms are furnished to the highest standard. Breakfast is unbelievably good with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon exquisite, coffee is as good as it gets. Home made marmalade laced with vodka or whiskey or tequila or just plain marmalade has to be sampled to be believed. The hosts, Karen &... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Red House. It was easy to find and great to either drive to other areas of Cornwall or walk down to the town. The room was beautifully clean, with wonderful views - the bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Breakfast was tasty and filling, and home-made jams too!... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Red House. The breakfasts were excellent and the owners provided much appreciated advice on what to see and do in the Falmouth area. We will recommend the Red House to our best friends without any hesitation.

As a vegan couple we were delighted by the originality and quality of the breakfast provided for us. The room was spacious with lovely bedding. The bathroom was spotless. The owners were welcoming and provided us with invaluable local information. The location was excellent for walking along the coast, local gardens and the walk into town was comfortable. We had...

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
