Had a fantastic time in Falmouth & couldn't fault The Red House. Only a 5 minute walk from the beach it town. The room was nicely decorated, comfortable & clean. The breakfast was lovely & freshly cooked to order with a 'breakfast special' option every day if you didn't fancy the full English. Attention paid to details which made it... More

Possibly the best B&B I have ever been to. Laid back, friendly but professional management and staff. I smoke and I often get that holier than thou nonsense when I stay away but no one gave me any judgment. More importantly the rooms are really good, I had to spend a night in Truro after I left here, in a... More

Thank you for taking the time to post you comments. I think you are confusing us with someone or something else as my wife was not here at the said time and did not even meet you??

There was a warm welcome from Karen and Mike. Room comfortable, may benefit from blackout blinds in the future but on the whole good. Excellent en suite facilities and the benefit of a fridge in the room. Excellent breakfasts, good sized portions with locally sourced produce and Karen's home made marmalades. Great location, five mins walk to centre of Falmouth... More

The Red House is well situated for visiting Falmouth - easy to walk to the town centre and the beach. There wasn't enough onsite parking space for my car, but it's easy to park in street opposite. My room had a nice view and was well-appointed - as signalled in advance, my private shower/ WC was across the corridor, which... More
