We had a recommendation to stay here and my wife and I and son and wife did so for eight nights last month. But why do TripAdvisor list it under Falmouth and not Penryn? Our stay was comfortable with Carolyn being a great hostess. Breakfast was good and prepared to order. A daily fresh fruit salad was on the menu... More

We were checking in our sister at Uni, and we stayed in this b&b. Carolyn was always willing to help, giving us indications or suggestions regarding what to visit or where to eat. The room was very spacious and clean. It is the best B&B we've been in!!! We will come back for sure! Thank you for everything, Carolyn!!! :)

We stayed last weekend to help my son move into Falmouth university and we were made so welcome and at home. The rooms were lovely and clean and the breakfast was piping hot and thoroughly enjoyable. We felt at home on such a stressful weekend and when visiting our son over the next 3 years will definitely stay there as... More

I have used this b & b a few times before and it was one of my favourites as the house is stunning so I was really looking forward to returning. Rooms are spacious and clean, with good décor and close to the shops and restaurants that Penryn has to offer. Carolyn is lovely but bless her she seemed a... More

My husband and I spent four nights at Prospect House as part of a trip around Cornwall and it was lovely. The house is beautiful and historic, the rooms are comfortable and Carolyn is a great hostess. The breakfast room which looks out on the garden is a delightful place to start each day and Carolyn's breakfasts are delicious and... More

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
