4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

B&B was excellent and the hosts looked after us very well. The breakfast was varied and the food was good. Lovely clean rooms overlooking the beach and only 10 minutes to walk into town. Falmouth beach is great for children and plenty of cliff walks.

Stayed here for 3 nights. It was very clean, friendly and great breakfast cooked to order. Would definitely stay here again. The only blip was that the shower in room 5 was only a drip, as there seemed to be a water pressure fault, when we mentioned it to the owners they said they was waiting for the plumber to... More

This was our first experience in a B&B and it was amazing! We received such a warm welcome when we arrived, the room was immaculate and super clean, the bed was very comfortable, the breakfast was great, and my little boy was made to feel very welcome! Sharon and Mike were wonderful hosts.

We were made to feel very welcome by the owner Sharon, who told us everything we needed to know, including a little map that had all the pubs where the sea shanty singing would be. Spotlessly clean and a very generous size room. The main town centre took about 15-20 mins to walk, making it the perfect location. Thank you... More

We didn't have a sea view but were out most of the time. We had a bath which was bliss for a good soak after all the walking we did. I liked the idea of the 'tick box' for breakfast. Filled in the night before to avoid waste. I've noticed more places doing this now which is a good idea.... More
