I came to town for an interview and am really glad I booked into Prospect House. Carolyn is a wonderful hostess. The beds are so comfy and the breakfast is fantastic. The house is centrally located, very clean and cosy. Don't be put off by the 'main' road, once you get past the gate the garden is beautiful.

A bit confusing to find. Sat Nat wouldn't find it, and its on the other side of the junction to where the road signs says it should be. Lovely grounds. Plenty of parking. Very lovely owner. Very accommodating and pleasant. Room was en-suit and very spacious, bed a bit too soft for my liking, but clean and well presented. TV... More

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting our daughter at the University. We were given a warm welcome after a long journey and a much needed cup of tea! Breakfast was superb, freshly made fruit salad each morning and a lovely full english! Our room was very pleasant, clean and quiet. Very handy for the uni, Falmouth and Truro.... More

We came across this Bed and Breakfast by accident, but what a lucky find. This place is what all B & B's should be like. It is a beautiful old nicely decorated house, well equipped room with large comfy bed. Large ensuite. Breakfast was unbelievable and nicely cooked. Host Carolyn could not do anything more or us. Wished we could... More

Prospect House is handily placed for every point of interest in Cornwall. We stayed there in mid April and were easily able to explore many of the hidden beaches and coves that Cornwall has to offer. The owner, Carolyn, has extensive knowledge of just about every inch of Cornwall and is very keen that you should get as much as... More

I have stayed in virtually every room in this delightful Georgian house during the last year, alone, with my partner and with my mother. Every room is individually decorated in a tasteful historic style. The situation is very convenient for Penryn centre and buses into Falmouth centre which is only a brisk half hour's walk away along the estuary. Carolyn's... More

We stayed here for three nights to visit family and can thoroughly recommend Prospect house. The house is beautiful and the rooms decorated in a traditional style, the beds are very comfortable and we didn't notice any traffic noise. A particular highlight was the breakfast, no corners were cut - delicious sausages and eggs in particular. Carolyn was friendly and... More

Beautiful house, beautifully decorated! Carolyn was warm, friendly and welcome and made us feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble and she went well above and beyond what was expected. I would definitely recommend this Guest House and would certainly visit again. Thank you very much!

Love love love it here! We have been for our wedding anniversary two years in a row in March 2010 and 2011 and due to illness postponed this year and visited in July 2012 instead. As always its clean, tidy, quiet, beautiful and welcoming. Carolyn is lovely and finds the perfect balance between chatting and being interested and letting you... More
