“In a different league”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Great location, lovely rooms, delicious breakfasts but what makes this special is the warm and caring hospitality from Simon and Vanessa who make you feel at home from the moment you step through the door. There are a few five star hotels that could take lessons from this hard-working couple. Just lovely.

My husband and I stayed in an utterly delightful Bed and Breakfast in Falmouth in the post Easter week and would like to highly recommend it. The owners are a charming and helpful young couple who have tastefully and quirkily renovated the property near to the station in quite a central part of Falmouth. We stayed at the top of the house with great views. The place was scrupulously clean, the bathroom was a delight and the beds were comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious with a "special" each morning. We will definitely be staying there again.

I'm lucky enough to travel around the south west for my job and I usually stay with a friend when in Cornwall, but he was ill and I had to find somewhere to stay that night quickly. My wife found Highcliffe online (at home) and I phoned straight away and was parking outside 10 minutes later!

Simon was very helpful and welcoming, and interesting to chat to.

My room was very well equipped with amazing attention to detail and very comfortable. Great shower! I immediately felt at home and began enjoying my short stay. I went to a restaurant that Simon recommended (excellent!!) and the following morning had a truly excellent breakfast. It felt like a little holiday rather than just an overnight on a business trip.
I intend to visit again, this time with my wife for a short break, but will searching out extra customers in the Falmouth area so I have a reason to stay here more often on business! A great B & B....

It's very reassuring to know that we can offer a relaxing and comfortable stay to those traveling down this way on business as well as those coming for a relaxing break, so we're pleased you found us, but also hope that your friend is feeling better now.
Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience of staying at Highcliffe and we're glad you managed to head to town and sample one of the many great restaurants that Falmouth has to offer.
We hope to see you more often for business and a well earned break with your wife, who thankfully put you onto us.

Highcliffe was a real find - a lovely B&B, with gorgeous stylish rooms, fantastic shower, high ceilings giving a wonderful airy feeling, and comfortable bed. Highcliffe benefits from a great location in Falmouth (5min into town or to the beach).

I stopped for business this time, but will be looking to return and enjoy a relaxed weekend.

We really appreciate the time you have taken to write a review on Highcliffe and we're pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We especially like the mention about the high ceilings as it was one of the things that first attracted us to buy the house.
We hope to see you again soon and hope that this time you can stay for longer and enjoy more of Falmouth and this area of Cornwall.

We have just returned from a wonderful 3 night stay at Highcliffe and would recommend it anyone. Our room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The view from the bathroom was fantastic! Our hosts were charming, so welcoming and the breakfasts were delicious. I loved all of the small details like the magazines and DVDs which you could borrow and the fresh milk left on your tea tray! We certainly hope to return.

Alysonfromleeds has said EXACTLY what I was going to say about Highcliffe! In short, the friendliest hosts you could hope for, quirky, fresh and extremely clean rooms and an atmosphere to suit any age group. Oh and the breakfasts are fab too, especially with Izzy taking the orders! Falmouth centre is a five minute walk away and there is a good choice of restaurants too. A great base for exploring Cornwall. What more can I say, except we'll be back!

Thank you for your review. Izzy was so excited to get one more mention for her table waiting. It will be hard to keep her away. We are really pleased you felt we target all ages appropriately, that what we hoped to achieve. I'm sure that people reading your review will appreciate knowing that as it's not something anyone has thought to mention before. We would be delighted to have to stay again. Thank you.
