“Brilliant location! Really helpful hosts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Situated so close to the beach, about a minute walk, and 10 minute walk into the main high street couldn't be better.
Hosts were great on arrival giving maps and details of all we wanted to know before having to ask.
Really friendly staff.
Room was good for all that we needed, shower a little big of a squeeze.

We only stayed here for 1 night en route to North Devon. Accommodation was superb, lovely room overlooking quiet street at night, very small shower but otherwise all was good and clean. There is a lovely guest lounge and sun deck for use with magazines and books at your disposal. Down the road is a lovely beach, pity it was too cold for us to enjoy, but there were a lot of brave people in the water! Also situated very close to town approx 10-15 minutes gentle walk. Breakfast was fresh and served with a smile, very good breakfast to sustain you up until lunch. Phillip and Jane are lovely friendly hosts and this accommodation is highly recommended!

I had not been to Cornwall since the mid 1970's and, following this visit, it won't be another forty years before I return.
Lugo Rock is an excellent base for both Falmouth and Cornwall. We hired the family room which is ideal for a single dad with two boys. The room and bathroom were clean and there were fresh towels every day. Phil (the proprietor) doubles up as the chef and his breakfast is a great way to start the day. During our four day stay I alternated between the full English (with tasty Kernow sausages) and smoked salmon and scrambled egg. He was also on hand to offer advice on where to visit.
Falmouth is a working port with lots to do and see. There are many of good eating places (we were particularly impressed by the Warehouse) and great views of the harbour from the streets in the higher part of the town and from Pendennis Point. Make sure to take in a walk of the castle grounds particularly in the evening as the sun goes down.
Another must is the 9 mile coastal walk from Falmouth to Helford Passage. The pint of St Austell Tribute in the Ferryboat Inn at the end of the walk is to die for, but make sure you don't stay too long and miss the last bus back to Falmouth which leaves at 4.05pm from the hill above Helford.
A great four days made all the better by our accommodation.

This was a very nice guest house and the owners (Phillip and Jane) were very hospitable. I loved the fact that there were bright lights in the room as this is very rare. Obviously there were lamps as well if you wanted it a bit dimmer but I could actually sit and see to make-up. Fantastic. The only thing I wasn't keen on was having to decide what you wanted for breakfast the night before. I understand the reasons for this but I would have changed my mind in the morning but I didn't like to. We also like a last drink after coming in before bed but we did not realise there was no bar until we had booked up. Still, it was an enjoyable stay there and great staff.

Room Tip: Our room was great and they all looked good.

We had a family room (double with adjoining single) for 2 nights 26/27 April as moved my son from Portsmouth to Helston (Navy base). Lovely warm welcome on arrival after long 5/6 hour drive and Philip was very helpful with map/directions of town centre for evening meal. The rooms were bright, clean and super comfy (we had the white furniture and white metal beds). Great choice for breakfast including muffin with scrambled egg and smoked salmon which was a delicious change from a full english after a big meal the night before! Great location - 15 mins walk into town and the on site parking was an added bonus. Would def use again when visiting our son and visiting Cornwall. Jane & Philip are perfect hosts and nothing too much trouble.

Room Tip: Family room with adjoining single great idea if you have a young child

After a long search for accommodation in Falmouth, we luckily found The Lugo Rock. They were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The family room was excellent - clean, warm and well decorated. The breakfast was outstanding! The owner's daughter waited on our table and she was very hospitable. She recommended many places to visit in the area. We also met the owners, Jane and Phillip, and they couldn't be more accommodating. We really recommend this place, especially after they all made a special effort to say good bye and thank you for visiting their place.
