“Welcoming and friendly Guesthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

On my one night stay here to visit relatives locally I was made very welcome - in spite of the fact that I had to drop bags off immediately and return later! The room was warm and clean with good quality bed linen which was very welcome after the exhausting day I had been through, looking after elderly relatives. The continental breakfast - which I had - comprised of locally made jams and delicious organic bread, and the hot breakfast which was being devoured by others looked very appetizing too. Staff were very helpful and accomodating and nothing was too much trouble. I recommend this Guest house in the leafy part of Falmouth - near the Maritime Museum and Events Square - to anyone wishing a relaxing 'getaway'.

My husband and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at this lovely B and B.
The room was big and modern, we had tea making facilities, towels and even a robe. Tessa the owner was so welcoming and friendly, can't wait to come again :)

Room Tip: Although check states by 730 pm ask and they will do this later.

My partner and I went to stay in Falmouth to visit my brother who is studying there. We chose Trelawney after reading lots of reviews on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. It is a lovely guest house with good facilities in the room - we were really impressed to find the tea tray included a cafetiere and hot chocolate. The room had everything we needed, including a good selection of tourist leaflets and maps, which were just what we needed to explore Falmouth. We went with the option of not having breakfast, as it was served a bit early for us, and were really grateful that it was charged separately.

The guest house was really quiet and is in a great location, just a few minuntes' walk from the sea front and the town centre.

We've been visiting Falmouth for four years off and on while our son was studying at the University College there. Over the years we have stayed in many different hotels and B&Bs in and around town, but we hadn't found any we really wanted to go back to. Until now.

For what was probably our last visit, to see our son's graduation, we booked a couple of rooms at the Trelawney. Online booking via booking.com was quick and easy. The location was ideal for us, just a ten-minute walk into town, and only five minutes from the Princess Pavilion where the graduation ceremony took place, so having parked right outside when we arrived, our car didn't have to move until we left.

The rooms were spotlessly clean, very well equipped, and comfortable. The owners were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were also everything we could ask for - literally: you can have whatever you care to ask for (within reason!)

As my review title says, I wish we'd found this place four years ago, and should we ever return to Falmouth we'd almost certainly go back to the Trelawney.

We stayed for 2 nights, and can highly recommend the Trelawney. We arrived slightly later than expected, and were warmly welcomed with tea and cake which was very reviving!! We had the double room upstairs with lovely glimpses of the sea and Pendennis Castle - the room had everything you need for a short stay, and was very clean. Breakfast was fantastic, and overall you get the feeling that nothing would be too much trouble for the hosts, although they did not intrude into your stay. Free parking was a bonus, as was free wi-fi, and we would definitely stay there again if we were in the area.

I stayed here last week during a trip to Falmouth, and cannot fault it. The hosts were very welcoming, breakfasts were excellent, and the rooms were very clean.

Price was competitive, there were no noisy guests, and we even had a sea view (albeit a small glimpse)

Highly recommended.

My son and I can recommend The Trelawney to all. We arrived for our stay of 2 nights, to be met with a very friendly welcome. The room was of a high standard and had everything we needed for our stay. As it was close to all the places we wished to visit in Falmouth we parked the car (free parking) for the whole weekend and walked. We will certainly stay there again.
