Lovely Hotel in Falmouth. Ideally located for a short stroll to the beach and the harbour/town areas. Wonderful hosts, beautiful breakfast and rooms exceptionally clean & spacious. Cannot fault & would definitely return, wished we had booked for a longer stay we were so impressed.

What a great place to stay. Clean, comfy and welcoming with great breakfasts.Only two min walk to the beach or three if you walk slow. It's an easy 10 min stroll to town which will bring you out by the maritime museum.

We had a perfect stay with great hosts who could not do enough for us. The location is great - 100 meters from the beach and less than ten minutes walk from the center of Falmouth. I would highly recommend the Rathgowry to everone.

This was long weekend break for myself, husband and daughter. We were greeted by owners Sharon and Mike who couldn't be more hospitable. We were shown to a delightful room which has a sea view. The room easily catered for the three of us and was clean, stylish and well appointed. The location was superb - so close to Falmouth... More

We stayed at The Rathgowry for 2 nights as we needed to be in Falmouth to move our daughter into her student accomodation. Even though my husband and I were thoroughly exhausted from the traveling and the sorting out that was needed for our daughter, we loved our stay at this guest house. We received a really warm welcome and... More

We had the double room with a balcony and it was absolutely lovely, bright, clean and airy with fabulous sea views. Breakfasts were marvellous and the music options were seemingly unlimited. A very friendly, warm welcome and lots of helpful advice on places to go and things to see.
